Re: “Homes near marijuana dispensaries worth more, report says

LOL! Take that, CONO! Dispensaries increase market value, not the opposite, so no reason for neighborhood groups to oppose them!

Re: “Reader: Peaceful protest are for peaceful people

Well said, Jan! Social change is about non-violence, peace, and talking..... not taking up arms like the other side has! Its about a different kind of future.....

Re: “Police are ticketing far more homeless campers than they once did

If homeless people had homes, the unsympathetic commentator above would not see all the things he complains about...... pissing and pooping are just a part of life, and without a public toilet (or with locked toilets in our parks), people have to relive themselves somewhere.
Don't blame the homeless for the lack of housing -- blame our City Government (and County) for not stepping up to the plate. And the Urban Renewal Projects they have enabled downtown and on Nevada Ave., will only increase homelessness because they aren't building any affordable housing next to the cutesy shops, restaurants and luxury apartments.

Re: “Springs man at the heart of federal lawsuit to upend the Electoral College

Isn't his five minutes of fame up yet? He was elected as a Democrat by his peers to represent them in the Electoral College, and he failed to do his duty. That's not heroic -- that's suppressing the votes of CO residents who depended on him to give voice to their votes for the Democratic candidate who won in our state. Instead he wanted to vote for a Republican? I'm with the SOS on this one...... and his suit is a big waste of money.

Re: “The left's answer to emboldened white supremacists? A militia of their own.

Would it be okay if people who are truly progressive -- that is, renouncing violence in all forms -- declined the so-called "protection" that this group of mixed up people wants to offer? I understand that neo-nazis and reactionaries are bad and can be violent against those who oppose them, but nothing is to be gained by empoloying those same tactics. We need to work for a world free of violence and guns, and learn different, peaceful methods if our world is to evolve and survive. I suspect that the turn out will dwindle at future protests that this group is involved with, as few anti-Trump policy people feel comfortable with their actions. They might as well be working for the other side if they are going to be introducing guns on the side of the opposition movement. I never thought I'd hear the words "guns" and "progressive" used in the same sentence.....

Re: “Mental Health Colorado addresses crisis at mental hospital, state needs

Andrew Romanoff! If anyone can fix it, he can. He was a wonderful speaker of the State House in early 2000s, brought the legislature under Democratic control, where it's stayed since then, remarkedly sane compared to other states.....
