Re: “I-25 toll lanes and town halls: Filling in the gaps about the expansion

Typical Colorado. Please vote for this tax increase so we can make your commute easier, gotcha bitch! Now pay me again to use the lane. I like how they try and soften the blow by claiming it's the lowest toll in the State, what a joke. Guess what, toll way to DIA was voted in and in the wording was the claim that the toll will dissolve once the road has been paid for. It was paid off in 2005, but you still pay to this day.

Re: “Walker Stapleton’s KKK great-grandfather isn’t his biggest problem

Author fails to mention that back in the 20-30's in Denver you couldn't win an elected position without bowing to KKK support. Not supporting this ideology, but it was a sign of the times back then. PBS has an episode of Colorado Experience which discuss' the KKK in Denver. It also pointed out that Mayor Stapleton wasn't an actual KKK member, but did support their cause to gain his position. When the KKK was going out of favor, Stapleton distanced himself from the organization. It point's out they abandoned their HQ in Denver, tried to set up shop in CSprings (were ran out) and settled in Canon City.

Re: “John Suthers reflects on first term as mayor, sets a new agenda and eyes a second term

Has bowed to every developer in town just like the previous Mayor. These guys cater to the tourist's only, screw the locals.

Re: “VRBO rental ended in a brutal assault, plus allegations of racism and home invasion. Why isn't the DA pressing charges?

Why the renters, when they obviously realized they were at the wrong house, didn't just go outside to their car? Just dumbfounds me? I'd be like "oh crap, I'm sorry, my bad!" They're lucky they weren't shot. The pic differences in the houses is night and day, you're telling me a pic of this tiny house wasn't in the listing?

Re: “The NRA’s devolution, spineless politicos and the battle to end mass shootings in America

There's that terminology again "Semiautomatic Assault Weapons." Writers and reporters love to use the scariest, fictional words to get their point's across. It's like reading this article and reporting it as a "syphilis infused dichotomy of undefined terminology." Just doesn't quite fit the narrative.

Re: “Record Store Day's Black Friday offerings are beyond special

RSD has become a commercial money grab that stresses every U.S. based pressing plant to the point that almost all the RSD offerings are either pressed or engineered like crap. First couple years, before commercialism, RSD was a celebration for record lovers, but now it's an overpriced, obnoxious reason to buy crappy offerings.
