Re: “Gov. Polis survives recall attempt

It would be better for Republicans to work to win elections instead of attempting to recall those legislators who have been legitimately elected. Democrats won big time in CO in 2016, and as they say, "to the victor belongs the spoils." So of course Democrats are going to try to get the things they promised to voters. A "Red Flag Bill", what's wrong with that? With all the deaths from gun violence in our nation, we need to have a way to remove guns from people with explosive mental conditions before they kill themselves, their wives and other innocents. Thank you, Gov. Polis, for having the courage to sign it after it was passed by both legislative chambers. A "Gas and Oil bill" that gives local governments more control? Same here, good for the legislature passing this. I think most voters feel pretty positive about the things accomplished in the past legislative session, and that is why the Polis opponents failed to get the signature they needed. Its not surprising really.....

Re: “Hick’s DSCC endorsement is a big break — for everyone else in the field

Just not sure what to say about this...... I feel like people who are offended by the national endorsement just need to get our there and work harder for their candidates. If they think the candidate they are supporting is better, than show the voters why and stop whining about the actions of the DSCC. It is a primary, all candidates have a chance.
I do think Andrew Romanoff is a much better candidate than John Hickenlooper, at least in terms of his positions on the issues, but he has also lost his last two elections. As moderate as Hick may be -- and he is very moderate, almost
Republican on many issues -- he has at least won two statewide elections as governor, and also two elections as Mayor. So if the goal is to show Gardner the door, along with Trump, than it could be that Hick is the strongest opponent.
Most of the women who are running have never won an election before, so its silly for them to think they can win the first for US Senate. As much as I'd love to have a woman senator in Colorado, I just don't think the current crop of female canidates are capable of winning that race, and I don't want to gamble on Gardner.

Re: “The problem here is hate

Hillary belongs in prison? On what crime, what charges? With all the investigations that she has endured, why has no law enforcement agency indicted her or found any evidence of criminality? Think about the reality before you make such baseless statements.
In contrast to your beliefs, the actual evidence is that Trump associates are going to jail for lying and corruption on behalf of Trump. Michael Cohen is serving a 3 year sentence for paying off Trumps mistresses in a scheme to keep them quiet. Mr Mueller found 10 possible incidents of obstruction of justice perpetrated by Trump, but he was not indicted because he is at this time the POTUS. He left it up to Congress to investigate those incidents, where the Republicans have repeatedly refused to cooperate and turned the investigation into a political mess.
So contrary to what you believe (without any evidence) the facts show that the criminality is on the Trump side and those are the folks who are already in prison, with more to follow if the House is ever able to investigate the evidence contained in the Mueller report.
Dave, do yourself and Hispanics a big favor by voting NO on Trump next time.

Re: “Polis: Maybe the DA should hand off the Bailey shooting to another agency

We have a bunch of racist, trigger-happy cops in this community supervised by a mayor and DA who hold similar philosophies and believe that police are never wrong. This is not the first time that there has been gunfire leading to death and injury of civilians, you will recall the shooting of Deputy Micah Flick as a bunch of police officers city And county together tried To arrest a car thief. No outside review, so it continues.....
Good for Gov. Polis calling for what is needed. No, this is not political, its about public safety and the rights of those accused of crimes. Many of these alleged infractions are not punishable by the death penalty, as imposed by local police without a trial.
Why is Mayor Suthers so defensive? It seems to me that law enforcement could benefit from an outside review of their handling of the situation. If all was correct, theres no harm in it.

Re: “Gazette editorial board: Calm down

Good job, Amy, thank you for exposing the G.s ridiculousness. Their distortions and outright lies are why I stopped subscribing 10 years ago. Am much more content reading the Indy, Denver Post and the Washington Post. Local TV fills in the gaps with city news.
Its hard to believe that such a horrible paper has such influence here, but when one is a member of the right-wingo universe, he or she does not want to be troubled by actual reality. Our community would be a lot better off if the Gazette went into bankruptcy!

Re: “A neighborhood says it’s barely tolerating the constant buzzing from a Bitcoin mining operation

Between Strawberry Fields, incessant shuttle buses traversing Chey Blvd to 7 Falls, this plant, the Accessory Dwelling Unit ordinance, the Bmoor convention center, C4C projects, etc., residential living is under threat from private businesses using the community as they will, forcing commercial impacts on residential areas. City enforcement of codes is almost non-existent, any development plan goes, often approved by the City Planning staff alone. This reduces our quality of life, the values of our homes. This city needs a new neighborhood organization to truly advocate for preservation of neighborhoods and peaceful enjoyment of our homes. CONO is not making any contribution towards residential concerns, they are too timid and too connected to city government. CONO needs to be replaced with a group that does actually represent neighborhoods and is not afraid to speak up for them. Shoot me an email at kulpc@comcast.net if youd be interested in pursuing that.
