Re: “Colorado electors strike a deal with Secretary of State

I wonder what you all would do if you found out the Constitution was not a truly lawful document per the Articles of Confederation-Article XIII? At least three state-republics did not want to ratify it, yet were forced to.

Re: “A huge field of candidates is shaping up to run for governor in 2018

What a bleeping convoluted Satanic mess. I'll take YHVH's Torah over what exists masquerading as governance any day, in the name of Yeshua.

Re: “Cake discrimination case heats up

When I first got to Colorado Springs in January of 1981 and entered the doorway of many a local (not franchise) business, I saw a sign above the door on the inside stating: "We Reserve the Right to Refuse Service to Anyone". Being born/raised on Lincoln, Nebraska, I had never seen such a sign before. It seems at that time a business could decide who to contract with and who not to contract with. It also seems those days of "discrimination", which everyone exercises every day in all their decisions, are supposed to be over, regardless of perspective. The baker in the above SCOTUS case was only refusing to do a specific cake for a sodomite couple. They could have bought one already made and had others do their special msg, yet didn't. They got "offended" over it and filed a complaint. This "discrimination" manure seems to only flow one way, and it is against YHVH/Yahweh/Yeshua/Jesus. The best option for Romans 10:9 born-again followers of Yeshua/Jesus is to form a Pure Trust Organization, so they are not under statutory control (the main problem of governance), and do business out of that instead of forming a corporation with the STATE OF Secretary of STATE.

Re: “AFP donates to committee opposing Colorado Springs' stormwater ballot measure

The 'opposition' is the citizens who are fed up with govt taking our money in taxes and fees and then redistributing it to their political allies who are undermining our personal liberties, those liberties guaranteed to us by the Constitution. I wonder if you know just what the Koch Brothers are doing in the political playing field with THEIR OWN money. In supporting anti-progressive/socialist schemes, they are doing all in their power to see that politicians, judges, and others in positions of leadership uphold the Constitution. And, BTW, the Koch's donated zero dollars to Trump's campaign because they don't like him any more than you do.

Re: “AFP donates to committee opposing Colorado Springs' stormwater ballot measure

The person running the fund works for AFP so no surprise. I don't like the wording of this tax bUT let's understand that the 'opposition' is still a GOP lobby group.

Re: “Regional Building Department shells out nearly $1 million to projects and causes

In that case, refund the excess profit to everyone who got a permit or whatever during that period. Donating to charity is not a legitimate function of govt.

Re: “AFP donates to committee opposing Colorado Springs' stormwater ballot measure

"holding the developers accountable is necessary but won't happen any time soon.."

So how in the world can you justify throwing your money at the problem before accountability is established? It's like writing a blank check to your drug-addict uncle--before he's even checked himself into rehab.

Re: “AFP donates to committee opposing Colorado Springs' stormwater ballot measure

certainly agree that developers have long been the problem for this city... just don't want to hurt the city in an attempt to call out the developers. holding the developers accountable is necessary but won't happen any time soon because rich people use legal methods to delay outcomes. we need stormwater dealt with now.

Re: “Regional Building Department shells out nearly $1 million to projects and causes

It is frustrating that individuals are drawing a false relationship between Regional Building Department funds, and the excess amounts that have been accumulated there, and the City's revenue stream, with a particular emphasis on Stormwater.

The Regional Building Department IS NOT a department of the City of Colorado Springs and does not fall under the City's leadership or direction. City funds and Regional Building Department funds are not tied together in any way - excess revenue at the Regional Building Department cannot be shared with the City's General Fund and the opposite is also true.

I get it: some people will oppose 2A. But to base that opposition on the assumption that the Regional Building Department's excess funds could be used by the City for any purpose, to include Stormwater, is a misunderstanding of how funds are allocated and used by different agencies within the Pikes Peak Region.

Re: “AFP donates to committee opposing Colorado Springs' stormwater ballot measure

Happy Few: "helping keep the rich developers, their buddies, rich!"

Actually, the passage of 2A is little more than a bailout for developers who have been allowed to cut corners or slip building drainage altogether in their developments.

Re: “Reader: I'm confident I'll be voting "no"

Vote NO if you want Pueblo and Pueblo County to take COS to court, as they should, for not living up to COS' obligations to address stormwater problems that affect Fountain Creek from COS to Pueblo.

We in the Arkansas Valley are tired of Springs voters who continually vote to shortchange themselves and everyone downstream on the stormwater problem.

I shouldn't say "We" however. I live in COS now, and I voted YES!! Freeloaders be gone!!

Re: “Reader: I'm confident I'll be voting "no"

The focus of the EPA and CO Dept of Health lawsuit is on the Citys failure to follow its own rules when approving and overseeing developer stormwater infrastructure. In one case, the lawsuit details an $11.4 million shortcut provided to developers (see entire lawsuit complaint):
The Cottonwood Creek DBPS estimated [a] total cost reduction of approximately $11.4 million (January 1992 dollars) by eliminating the proposed detention ponds and associated fees, and reducing the Cottonwood Creek Drainage and Bridge Fees. [charged to developers]
