Re: “Divisions in El Paso County Democratic Party revealed in defections and drama

Wish that Jarrell had as much knowledge as he does enthusiasm! While dealing with unaffiliated voters is an issue for every political campaign, they are not the backbone of the party. "Weak" Dems" can't be counted on as they don't have the commitment that it takes to build and stick with a political party -- they float in and out, changing their affiliations as it suits them, voting for whichever candidate best meets their ideological purity test, "too cool" to be Democrats all the time. Many of the new local party leaders have a negative attitude towards the Dem Party and actually worked against the party's nominee last Nov. Promoting them to leadership positions now doesn't seem like a good way to strengthen the local Dem party. It will only be strong if it focuses on its core constituency that it can always count on to come out and vote for Dem candidates after they win the primary, and uses them to reach other weaker constituencies, like unaffiliated voters and Green Party folks who may occasionally vote Democrat when it suits them.

Re: “Medical marijuana license fee hike closer to reality

Ya, they hate the weed, but they sure do love the revenue it brings them...... get ready for price hikes to satisfy "the man", mmj patients...... uh-oh, what if consumption goes down because the price is too high?

Re: “Reader: Defund public media, it'll be fine

People like Don McCullen think they have it all figured out, but they don't recognize how woefully uneducated they are. McCullen just wants to believe that what he hears from Faux News and Rush is the gospel truth. When other media sources publish viewpoints that he doesn't agree with, he attacks progressives!
Public radio and TV, some of the finest news programs in our nation, are considered to be an enemy of the people because their crime is to educate the public, not to spout the right wing line.
Anyone who watches commercial media knows how much time is devoted to advertising. I appreciate that PBS and NPR don't bombard us with commercial manipulation, and the programming is just the best. Taxpayer dollars spent on public broadcasting are well spent, too bad Doug is too ignorant to acknowledge that. Lets get out of the "Right-wingo universe" that Trump and his dull supporters are spinning these days.

Re: “Trump made no sense — or friends — during Springs campaign stop

Thank you to those who tolerated the hateful comments and stood up against Trump's racist hate-mongering, showing by example that love for humanity is a better way. I have faith in humanity that we will rise up over this threat to democracy and diversity, but it deeply saddens me that racism is so openly expressed now, even children. Hard to put a lid on that kind of behavior once it's out there....

Re: “Though Bernie's campaign looks busted, local delegates are still with him

Hillary 2016, lets go! Time for Sanders supporters to get behind the Democratic nominee and stop the real enemy, Trump. Sanders ran a good race, but he lost. Any person who cannot see the benefits of Hillary Clinton for president over Trump is probably a Republican racist, just like he is......

Re: “Philip Anschutz's influence knows no bounds

Mr. Anschutz is like our own little Koch Bros.! And I don't mean thst in a good way..... Throwing his money around, he wants to control everything and everyone. He certainly seems to have our political leaders doing his bidding, not to mention state & US elected officials.
