Re: “Lamborn votes 'yes' on GOP health care bill as constituents storm local office

There may be a small bit of satisfaction is seeing many of the Trump supporters get their just payback by losing their own health insurance, there is no satisfaction at all in the realization that nearly half of US voters chose a candidate who was willing to lead this fight against minorities, immigrants, women, the LGBTQ, the elderly, the poor and even the middle class. Whether you're a Bernie, Hillary, or Jill Stein supporter, the message is clear: once a candidate is chosen, we ALL need to get behind and support that person.

Re: “Colorado State Senate votes against re-appointment of lesbian Civil Rights Commission chair

As if her sexual orientation mattered. Her activism is the sticking point.

Re: “Colorado State Senate votes against re-appointment of lesbian Civil Rights Commission chair

You mean Republicans voted AGAINST this woman. Their abject hatred for anyone who is not a straight, rich, white, gun-toting male is on full display with this vote!

Re: “Lamborn votes 'yes' on GOP health care bill as constituents storm local office

What does that say about the people who live in his District? Not much. They continue to keep voting him into office, over and over, and over again. So, if they lose their healthcare coverage, that's on THEM! They will have gotten what THEY wanted and deserve! They have always known where he stands and on which side he votes. Too bad, so sad. I for one, won't be shedding any tears for them.

Re: “Lamborn votes 'yes' on GOP health care bill as constituents storm local office

For those who voted for Drumpf and Lamborn, you're getting exactly what you wanted and what you deserve. If you lose your healthcare, you'll have no one to blame BUT YOURSELVES. They made it VERY clear where they stood on this issue; and the fact that they celebrated afterwards is just downright sickening! That you think they care about YOU is sad; because they don't; just themselves. And they care about women least of all. There were 13 Republicans who worked on this Bill...ALL old, white men; not ONE woman on the committee and it shows in the Bill! They won't even pay for contraception for women, but WILL pay for Viagra for men! Who do they think gets women pregnant? The Easter Bunny? I guess they expect them to stay at home and be pregnant for their entire lives. The other group taking a big hit, the elderly of course....SAD!

Good luck trying to vote him out. He was almost ousted during last years county convention, but stomped his opponents in the primary and the general elections. He'll only be out of office if he decide to leave or the Republican leadership wants him out.

Re: “Mayor John Suthers warns against 'sanctuary city' policy, Green party pushes ahead

Mr. Suthers should know that ICE can come in to *any* part of the nation, period. There is *no* "sanctuary" from that.

What right-wing racists want is to appropriate city and state resources to carry out a federal function. That is the kind of thing "conservatives" have called an "unfunded mandate" on other issues. But not on this.

It is destructive because this war on law-abiding immigrants will increase crime because crimes won't be reported by those who fear police will reported them to ICE.

Besides, the U.S. farm policies and NAFTA *created* the illegal immigration problem by wrecking the livelihood of millions of Latin Americans. See "How NAFTA and Farm Policy Subsidies Created the Illegal Immigration Problem"

Re: “Wommack's pathway to prominence

Please keep researching this man. You have already demonstrated adequately that no one was raised from the dead in Pritchett. Keep checking out his claims to raising the dead, including his wife and son. You write well. A book on the subject would be helpful. His son's former wife, Desiree, has quite a story to tell that could potentially add a lot to setting the record straight.

Re: “Lamborn votes 'yes' on GOP health care bill as constituents storm local office

Hi Nat,
In regard to what you stated in your article: "The ACHA dissenters may be in the minority in El Paso County, where a majority voted for Trump, but they're in the majority nationwide"
Is there any way to get a total count from Lamborn's office of how many voters called\faxed\emailed\visited his office opposing the AHCA vs. those who were in favor to back up your claim above? Obviously the count would only be for the COS office but it would give a better picture of how many of Lamborn's specific constituents were opposed to the bill vs. those who were in favor of it.
Thanks for your help!

Journalism is a relative strength of the Gazette; editorializing and adapting to changing times, not so much.

Re: “Air Force to UCCS? Concerns over a chancellor finalist

Another person that would have been a better candidate is William J. Lennox Jr. He is a former West Point superintendent. Also, he received a PhD in English from Princeton and is a current civilian university president.

Re: “Air Force to UCCS? Concerns over a chancellor finalist

If CU wanted to consider a well-qualified candidate who is a USAFA graduate who received a Rhodes Scholarship, they should have encouraged Christopher B. Howard to apply. He came back from Oxford with a doctorate. He came back from Harvard with an MBA. He is a civilian college president. There are many much better qualified women in higher education who should have been in the application pool. The consulting recruitment firm, DHR International, should have done a better job. This is a wasted final candidate slot by the search committee.
