Re: “Roads tax "vote yes" effort draws thousands of dollars in support from contractors

The Colorado Springs Forward website - - as of 4:50 pm 15 Oct 2019 a.d. appears to have been hacked - and four minutes after I saw the site - - I received an email notice from MicroSoft: "How to protect yourself online"

If you go to the site out of morbid curiosity - - might be advisable NOT to click on whatever opens up as several of my friends describe a different suspicious looking page opens up.

Re: “Law officers have shot and killed dozens of people since 2001 — nearly all deemed justified by the District Attorney’s Office

A one-minute (or less) anonymous 'Kwik-Poll. Thank you for your consideration to participate.

"Should the Colorado Attorney General call for an independent investigation by the Colorado Bureau of Investigation into the recent fatal police shootings in Colorado Springs?"

Re: “Local Dems call for Gov. Polis town hall meeting on police shooting

This letter really is a tacky move and doubtful, even with the local corn-pone politicans - this came from the Party.

Re: “Local Dems call for Gov. Polis town hall meeting on police shooting

But - - on the subject of 'Democrats'

It was Democrats who took on poverty with the Great Society.
It was Democrats who had the balls to take on organized crime.
It was Democrats who took charge of the fight for civil rights.

Oh. and they gave us Donna Rice!

Re: “Local Dems call for Gov. Polis town hall meeting on police shooting

Perhaps if it were not the:

"The Black Community"
"The Hispanic Community"
"The White Community"
"The LGBTQ Community"

- - - and only:

"We are One Community"

- - - it would help?

Re: “Mayor’s chief of staff’s child hired in streamlined process

Local government is that level where the RISK for RETALIATION is HIGHEST when reporting ethics violations.

"Management at local levels of government are the least likely to know about their ethics risk. Local governments experience the lowest levels of reporting (67 percent), the highest pressure to commit misconduct (16 percent), and the highest levels of retaliation for those employees who do report (20 percent). "

Re: “DeVon Bailey protesters disrupt State of the City speech

From the local Daily, an interesting comment from a local 'elected':

"But City Councilman Tom Strand complained that the protests are NOT CONSTRUCTIVE and noted that his second term is more contentious and vitriolic than his first."

The Boston Tea Party was a 'Protest' Familiar with this event?

The very first article in the BILL OF RIGHTS:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to PETITION THE GOVERNMENT FOR A REDRESS OF GRIEVANCES." (Protests)

Stand (and Gaebler) while you may not agree with the protesters - or what they stand for - -

THEY DAMN SURE HAVE THE RIGHT TO PROTEST AS GRANTED TO THEM IN THE 1700'S BY A GROUP OF MEN WITH SUPERIOR INTELLECTUAL CAPABILITIES EXCEEDING THAT OF WHAT HAS RUN FOR LOCAL OFFICE LATELY.

Without protests:

Only white males would be allowed to own property,

Women would not be allowed to vote,

Slaves would still be slaves - - -

And - - we could not buy beer!

Were it not be for 'protests' - county commissioners could serve three consecutive terms. Scary thought.

Are local elected officials the reasons people are becoming 'Vitriolic'?
