Re: “Trump’s food box punishes the poor

Hey I remember when the independent wrote stories of consequence and meaning. Now its like one substantial article and then pages and pages of art shows, bands that are playing and restaurant stories. Way to make a fucking difference.

Re: “Local schools working to mitigate effects of child poverty on test scores

Poverty is not conducive to stupidity. I was a poor kid and I always had good grades. Both of my kids were poor, but they also have always had good grades. My grandkids are poor and in advanced placement classes . The problem is lazy parents lazy students and indifferent teaching.

Re: “One chronicle of street (and other sexual) harassment in Colorado Springs

I feel very sorry for any woman who suffers this type of abuse. As a woman who is 5`8" and strong I don't suffer as much because I adopt an intimidating persona in public places and if someone is rude or out of line I address it immediately and forcefully. I would suggest that small or frail women carry a stun gun.

Re: “School District 11’s mill levy override tries to level the education playing field

I am confused about why finding enough money for our schools is such a problem. If I remember correctly years ago when we voted for legal Marijuana sales that a significant amount of the tax proceeds were supposed to go to our schools. Now we are told that D-11 isn't eligible for any of this money because they could lose other government grants if they accepted funds from Marijuana taxes. I am extremely interested in what our government is doing with all of this money. No one seems to be receiving any of the benefits our votes were supposed to support.

Re: “Citizens for Safer Neighborhoods wants retail marijuana in the Springs

The idea that people who use cannabis should not be allowed to have firearms in light of the recent action that allows people with mental illness to own firearms. I would rather deal with a stoner with a gun than a psycho.
