Re: “TABOR author on question 1A

Isn't this from the guy found guilty of money laundering, attempted bribery, and tax fraud then violated his probation? Yeah... no thanks.

Re: “Reader: Who cares how much taxes Trump paid!

It's not "did he pay taxes" it's what they reveal about his conflicts of interest and potential monetary gain from his unique position to influence legislation and EOs that will directly benefit him.
The party that has railed about transparency and accountability for years now seems to see nothing wrong with their candidate who refuses to live up to that stance.
We heard GOP talking heads rant on and on about all the Obama vacations, yet nothing with the extravagant amount spent by Trump for his numerous weekend getaways to his for-profit resort.
Trump is not going to "fix the country" for anyone not holding giant financial portfolios. If you think he gives one ounce of thought toward the plight or life of middle/poor America, you are sadly mistaken.
He has DECADES of history of his corrupt ways including not paying contractors, hiring foreign workers (because he can pay them less than he would have to pay Americans) and various other shady things.
I applaud you for your faith, but I also wish you would take a moment to ask yourself if you would be just as supportive of the EXACT SAME actions and lack of transparency by any other person in that office.
(and let me guess, there will be a "Hillary!" "Obummer!" reply...)

Re: “Strawberry Fields in Cheyenne Cañon is on the table for a swap with The Broadmoor

Perhaps a city name change to Broadmoor Springs should be proposed, along with naming Anschutz king? The mayor and city council already seem to enjoy kissing his ring, might as well give him the crown as well.

Re: “Building defects, Syrian refugees, vegetarian Thanksgiving, and more

I suppose we could apply the M&M analogy above to a number of things.... such as gun ownership, for example. Sure a majority of gun owners are "responsible" but there is that small percentage that is a risk to public safety - as we learned on Halloween and on the day after Thanksgiving. Why is that acceptable and helping out people who have been run out of their homeland any different?
