Re: “Firefighters want a voice, not “special treatment”

Here's a question: If firefighters (union representatives) are worried about their plight, why did they collectively vote for Donald Trump (an anti-worker, mob-connected , treason weasel)? See: https://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/democrat…

Why do they continue to vote for "right to work" Republicans? Seems there's a disconnect between their voting patterns and their own self interest. At least Suthers isn't opposed to raising their wages and hiring more firefighters ( a first of late). Also, stop electing anti-tax teabaggers. How do they think we pay their salaries? Continuing to vote GOP/Libertarian anti-tax/anti-union/anti-government crusaders is shooting yourselves in the foot. You work FOR THE GOVERNMENT.

Re: “Former County Democratic Party leader forms new club to keep politicking

Hey Liz,

Count me in! Email coming your way shortly. Thanks for the info since Bernie STILL refuses to join the party and insists on primaries against Democrats as opposed to fighting off Trump's Tea Party. ODD, init?

Re: “Indy's 2018 primary election endorsements

Angley is a TEABAGGER: anti-immigrant, Christofascist, ANTI-WOMEN, pro-guns everywhere nut job. His own website makes that perfectly clear: https://angley4sheriff.org/constitutional-…

You're straight up lying to people with this fluff. Rhea as well. You're electing fringe Christofascist nutters (and anyone else willing to undermine liberals in this town) which is why the people went for Trump wholesale - they sadly have no clue what's in store for them thanks to your lack of integrity.

The LAST thing we need is yet another "Constitutional" sheriff. NO Democrat has a chance? Could it be because your paper contributes to the alternative facts atmosphere on a continuous basis? How dos this even qualify as "NEWS"?

Did any of you "journalists" even bother to visit Angley's web page? Nope. Fact is, you're straight up lying to your readership. I'll stick with Elder if not a Dem. The LAST thing we need is yet another RWNJ heading up the Sheriff's office. You people ought to be ashamed of yourselves for misleading the public. Clearly "Independent" does not mean liberal (no matter how much you try to pass your Libertarian claptrap off as even vaguely progressive.) No wonder Colorado Springs can't get it together.

Routon, I didn't tell the truth when I turned down your column offer back in 2012. I knew your paper wss Libertarian garbage and I knew perfectly well there was no way you'd print anything outing the corrupt Tea Party fringe fest (Koch/ALEC, remember?) How are you people claiming to be FOR church/state separation while conning people into electing nuttters straight out of Focus on the Family at every opportunity???????????????????

It's way past time you started getting called out on your BS. The harm you do to working people is unforgivable at this point. Try thinking about people other than yourselves for a change.

Re: “Indy's 2018 primary election endorsements

NOPE. No more Bible beaters and no more single-issue candidates like Kennedy (the nasty campaign BS can get stowed also). Cary Kennedy is running on ONE single issue . Polis may have started charter schools, but he is opposed to taxpayer funded private schools so I'm good with that. Also, we heard nothing except idiocy from people regarding PACS all throughout the 2016 election and now you're trashing the guy NOT using a PAC? Make up your minds.

I'd love to see more experienced, well-rounded, educated LIBERAL female candidates in our future (in the mold of Hillary Clinton). I don't do single-issue candidates. I also am not interested in"populists" nor religious fundamentalists like Rhea. These people were the reason the country ended up with Trump. Polis and Snyder will be my choices. Lee as well. LADIES, WE NEE D TO GET OUR ACT TOGETHER! And what is it with Colorado Springs Demmocrats (aside from not actually being Democrats or liberals)? Maybe try running someone like Skorman against Lamborn the wingnut instead of conservatives, Libertarian dude bros, or Berniacs for a change.

Last thing, "Independents" you BernieTrumps are responsible for the federal nightmare we of the great unwashed will be enduring - so pardon me if I ignore the hell out of you forever more. You people never learn.

Re: “Campaign finance reports show big loans in sheriff's race

This tells us exactly nothing about who these people are. Did anyone at this paper graduate with a degree in journalism?

Re: “Jaywalking case exposes law enforcement embedded in far-left group

I am of the opinion that Colorado Springs is brimming with lunatics. "Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right." Decent people may need to relocate. Between the Libertarian "Christian" fundie Tea Party crowd and now the BernieSteins the idiocy is cranked to overkill most of the time. Add Trump as dear leader and it's a complete creep show. Then again, normal people warned you long ago where this was heading.

Re: “Jaywalking case exposes law enforcement embedded in far-left group

Eric Verlo is a severely disturbed individual. Some one should probably point that out before describing him as "a seasoned activist.": See this article regarding Verlo's sympathy at trial for deranged Sovereign Citizens: http://www.westword.com/news/judge-in-sove…

You might also like to take a look at his blog "Not My Tribe" (pure insanity - "anarchism"):

This would be why normal citizens rarely participate. Maybe stop handing outright lunatics the microphone. NAACP might like to keep its distance from extremists (they clearly aren't helping). And no, you should NOT go around punching Nazis no matter how tempting it may be. Those who deal with countering hate groups offer sound advice - peaceful and separate counter-protests. See Boston's response: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-n…

Pro Tip: cooperate with police to keep rallies peaceful - stop antagonizing law enforcement.
