Re: “Finding cheap internet is not easy

Did the cut the cable thing in 2008. Lived in Woodland Park. Got a broadband antenna installed from Peak Internet for $30 a month, streamed Netflix, Hulu and Cracker very well but occaisional buffering. Went to OEM parts and bought two Winegard antannae. Pointed one at Denver and one at Colorado Springs. Used R6 coaxial from Balun to receivers with Radio Shack signal booster (110 volt). In 2008 we were getting 58 stations. Mind you some were double i.e. two ABC,NBC,CBS stations, but some Indys like ION, MyTV and CW had a lot of good old shows.It was very functional. Now back in the Springs and I just don't feel the need to set that up again. Got Xfinity in three rooms and 256 internet for 130 a month. Sounds pricey until you realize that my electric bill went from $300 to $140 between Woodland Park and the Springs. My electric bill savings payes for my cable/internet with a couple bucks left over. Black Hills Energy sucks and you guys should be grateful for Colorado Springs Utilities, I know I am.

Re: “Local students protest Trump

So the same generation that loved "The Hunger Games" books and movies now wants to get rid of the electoral college? Talk about a lack of critical thinking skills. And this is the real problem with participation trophies, you have to learn how to lose when you are a child. Great job public school system, you have created an entire generation of entitled people that now have to learn how to lose much later in life.

Re: “Protect the parks, cover the arts, cut the exhaust, and more

OMG Kerri Oliver that is the most ridiculous and stupid complaint I have EVER heard. You are not a critical thinker. You cannot handle any opinion that crosses your own little worldview. You cannot even bear the thought that somebody might, just might, not agree with your point of view. Go home, turn on MSNBC and cower in your little safe space. For a group of people that supposedly have "open" minds you are amazingly myopic. Try listening to those that don't agree with you sometime, you just might learn something.

Re: “The Springs can be an example for America

I don't get this love for Hillary thing. She has been Wall Streets favorite choice for a long time (not unlike Trump). For years you have railed about the 1%, income inequality and yada yada yada. So your choice is a woman sponsored by Wall Street or a guy who sometimes sounds as if he is quoting Das Kapital, and you choose the bankster???? So all this leftist socialist stuff you espouse is just to get the kids excited, you actually don't buy into that.

Re: “Of dogs, climate and firearms

Wildfires created by global warming ..... too rich to pass up. Then why does a pine tree cone not release it's seed until it's at 130 degrees farenheit????? Come on Sage boy, let's hear it. Okay I'll tell you. Because pine trees evolved around the natural death of the forest, by fire. It put's nutrients back in the soil and gives the seed cover. So the pine tree knows how it is going to end, and any person familiar with evolution also knows it. A certain group of people told us in the 1970's to stop logging the forest. So we did. 30 or 40 years later, these same forests burn out of control because of so much undergrowth. The same people that told us to stop logging the forest now claim "climate change". You cannot make this stuff up.

Re: “Shooting suspect makes appearance

Right now Democracy Now host Amy Goodman is bemoaning the fact that French authorities have made protest illegal during the COP21 meetings. The French are saying no protests because of terrorism. This is false of course. Or so I thought, until I realized the vaunted CSaction claims Christian protestors are terrorists! You have just made the point that free speech is terrorism. Congrats, what's next? Repeal the 1st amendment? Perhaps a strict control over free speech as applied by the government. Next time you're looking for a fascist I suggest finding a mirror.
