Re: “Springs' deal for contaminated land remains pending a year after approval

Norwood has managed to dump a piece of contaminated land on the city so the taxpayers can foot the bill for cleanup. They even changed the ownership to a storefront LLC to shield Norwood from liability for property they in fact own. Why am I not surprised? Because Norwood has is the tail wagging the dog in Colorado Springs and has used its influence to try and make others (read taxpayers) pay for toxic waste cleanup on its property by trading for consideration with the city. They are also pushing for utilities ratepayers to fund Banning Lewis Ranch infrastructure, Its time for Norwood to develop its own land at its own risk on its own dime, like developers do every where else. They are not a good ROI.

Re: “Reader: A proposal to stem gun violence without taking away anyone's Second Amendment rights

The mental image of a he-man redneck in camouflage, ball-cap, and hip waders prancing through the woods with a Hello Kitty AR-15, My Little Pony 50 round magazine, and all pink Barbie night vision scope, is now etched in my brain, thanks, you just can't un-think that kind of vision..
Interesting idea.
The problem I see is 2nd grade girls being expelled from school for suspicion of carrying a concealed Fairy Princess backpack or multi-round capacity Toy Story pencil case.

Re: “Defense Department targets Air Force Academy's use of mental diagnoses to oust cadets who report sexual assault

I just hope that this doesn't end like most of these IG investigations, with a non-finding or insufficient evidence, or, even worse blames some unwitting junior officer or enlisted person for a failure of the academy commander.

The air force academy honor code web page states the cause of major honor code violations is "Isolated individual honor violations were tolerated by other cadets, and this encouraged the spread of more honor violations within the cadet wing." Perhaps they should focus this type of reasoning on the command structure, and see that "toleration" starts at the top.

Re: “Air Force Academy Endowment chief wears religion on his necktie

If you couldn't tell by the awe inspiring temple to protestantism, the academy chapel, that the school has always been a quasi-religious fundamentalist organization, then you really haven't been paying attention. Other signs of religious influence: Forgiveness for breaches of the honor code, acceptance of sexual misconduct and misogynist policies, and non-acceptance of non-christian faiths. It has always been that way. The tie is just decoration compared to the rest.

Re: “Peter Brimelow: VDARE¬†Foundation rejects white supremacy label

Well certainly the 13 count indictment against the Russian entities interfering in the election process debunks their claim of a working strategy. They seem to have the same playbook.

Re: “Reader: l have the right not be shot to death

As of January 24, there have been 11 school shootings this year, the most recent being a high school in Kentucky where two students were killed.And this is only the SCHOOL shootings. On what planet is this acceptable? None. No sane, sober-minded adult could find this to be normal, yet as a nation we give it a collective shrug and move along, nothing to see here, its the price of freedom. When does the price become too steep? When we end up barricading ourselves in our homes because the felons and sociopaths have a right to bear arms along with the so-called patriots. This is not what 12 generations of my family fought for in this nation and they would be taken aback that we allow murder in the name of liberty. I have weapons and I have extensive training in their use, in both sport and combat. They are not as dear to me as the lives of those in my family and community.
