Re: “Needle exchange debate by El Paso County Board of Health ends with "no" vote

I have to agree with the decision. Everyone knows that illegal IV drug use is highly risky, dangerous and illegal. If you are going to ignore that and do it anyhow, it is unreasonable to think that the rest of society should have to pay to help you get clean needles. @JayWhynotaskme, there is probably some merit in your assumption. And probably not a lot of sympathy if that is the reality.

Re: “Dobson endorses Roy Moore for Senate

DR. Dobson should be ashamed of himself . He put politics over morality. He gives Christianity a bad name. How low will Dr. Dobson go to elect an republican. His values have gone from God WE TRUST to REPLUBLICAN WE TRUST and the hell with God. I don't think he realize he has reached that low. This is what happens when you get tainted with the world.

There's ample data showing needle exchange programs are effective.

Re: “Needle exchange debate by El Paso County Board of Health ends with "no" vote

If Council member Gaebler would have attended the meeting, she would have seen health professionals admonish the program. There is no accountability for 112,000 exchanged needles in Pueblo. One of the worst drug environments in the state is in Pueblo where "drug kits" were issued through this program. One prior heroin addict stated this program would do nothing to fix the problem. One health care professional with over 50 years of experience counseling addicts stated this would be the worst thing we could do for addicts. What's really interesting is we were going to locate the program on the west side where the worst homeless problems are along the creek. Enabling addicts is not the answer!

Thank you to everyone willing to step up and speak to the negative reality of this program!

Re: “Needle exchange debate by El Paso County Board of Health ends with "no" vote

Mrs. Littleton's idea that 'better education and outreach' will solve the 'infectected needle' problem is splendid except for the fact I have never seen anyone reading a health brochure while shooting up!

And Peggy, druggies generally do not vote.

Sad to see our socially (not fiscally) conservative county commissioners put politics ahead of the health and safety of our community members.

Re: “Reader: These times call for public transit

Inter-city public transport is doomed to failure unless really good intra-city public transport is put in place first. The HyperLoop, Front Range fast rail service, etc are all colossal wastes of money unless that critical flaw is fixed first. Every place that has tried it has found this out the hard way and the inter-city transport ends up being a black hole for money relying on government bail-outs (IOW increased taxes) to keep it running. However, the intra-city services do fairly well without the inter-city services.

Having lived overseas (mostly in Europe, including in Italy) for over a decade I can tell you that the reason why the inter-city transport works overseas is because they have excellent intra-city public transport.

I adamantly oppose throwing any money at these inter-city services if the intra-city services are not done first.

Re: “Dobson endorses Roy Moore for Senate

"The accusations/allegations against Roy Moore have completely fallen apart."

except that everyone in that town knew they were true for years but did nothing. the cops and mall security guards all knew of his perv-ness (kicked out of an undergarments section of a store... dude). only in the south will this white rapist/assaulter be elected. Alabama don't need no stinkin facts to get in the way of a jebus lovin pervo...

Re: “Dobson endorses Roy Moore for Senate

Gregaj7:

Unhinged post.

"The accusations/allegations against Roy Moore have completely fallen apart." BOGUS. NONSENSE.

If Roy Moore "walks in the righteousness of Christ" and is being falsely accused, you have to discount the credible reports of his victims. That is, in a word, shameful.

Pedophilia aside, Moore is unqualified for the Senate. He can't/won't take his oath office to support and defend the Constitution. He has already established his rejection of the Constitution. He was removed from office twice for disobeying lawful court orders.

Re: “T.R. Reid is still fighting for universal health care, along with groups across the country

Keeping/bearing arms is Constitutionally protecting by the 2nd amendment. Healthcare has no such protections, either federal or state. "Universal Healthcare" is a socialistic/communistic mindset with no place to lawfully or legally happen on this land of the United States of America. I completely refuse/reject that offer of contract!

Re: “Drake power plant shutdown costs estimated

I've been watching an orchestrated war on the poor/homeless for about 2-decades. The situation with Drake is a large part of that war. Perry Sanders (billionaire) wants Drake eliminated yesterday (reported in the Gazette around 2012). Those in his circles have no problem with a rate increase, or electrical controls that favor the wealthy. I'm beyond wore-out of the wrong folk running things. The increasing dilemma is this is going on nation-wide.
I thank Yahweh/YHVH for judging this system, in the name of Yeshua, Amen!

Re: “Dobson endorses Roy Moore for Senate

The accusations/allegations against Roy Moore have completely fallen apart. The Washington Post (under Bezos) is now backtracking on their report saying it was part of a sting operation (more manure on their part). Gloria Allred's efforts has disintegrated. Folk here despise the righteousness of Yeshua/Jesus, and all within. The reports on the history of Matt Lauer are completely different than the reports on the history of Roy Moore. A man who walks in the righteousness of Christ Yeshua is being falsely accused, and many do not have the discernment of the Holy Spirit to know this factually/truthfully. I pray all reading this have the extremely "hot coals" of conviction of their sin and come to repentance. in the name of Yeshua, Amen!

Re: “Reader: These times call for public transit

The hyperloop will speed things up considerably. However, the hyperloop will be a product of capitalism. Perhaps you can seize it after it is built. Then you can set the price according to your whim and NOT according to market demands.

Re: “A cyclist's appeal to drivers

Right on, Greg Thornton!! My husband and I moved downtown for the joy of being able to use our bikes as transportation, in addition to our long history of recreational riding. We are thrilled to see the progress being made in bike lanes and trails, providing greater safety for cyclists, and smoother sailing for motorists. As I see it, the only thing missing is basic manners. If youre driving a car, watch for cyclists; if youre riding a bike, watch for cars. Simple as that. Bonus points if you smile and wave.

Re: “Stir Coffee & Cocktails’ strengths lie in its coffee shop roots

I've been to Stir on several occasions and ALWAYS find it very satisfying - to the friendly staff, to my favorite chicken salad croissant sandwich - it never has disappointed. Hardly mediocre, and the books are very real. Sad to read a review that is sub-standard at best, giving very little credence to the unique atmosphere and fun, friendly folks who work there.

Can we give a bad review to the review and a high five to Stir?
