Re: “Let voters decide, stormwater task force says

In 2009 we paid a storm water fee based on the estimated water run-off from your property. The city collected millions. What happened to the money? Why wasn't the storm water system repaired with that money? Do be taken in again. Vote NO on 2E.

Re: “Let voters decide, stormwater task force says

Do not be fooled. The $5 monthly fee added to your utility bill seems innocent enough, but the city can raise that fee any time to any amount for any length of time.

Re: “Mikey Weinstein talks “fighting words” and the military’s religious oppression in the Trump era

Mikey--Thank you for articulating the predatory, opportunistic, and base nature of Christian fundamentalism. And thank you for holding Lt. Gen. Silveria accountable for this clear omission of people who are transgender, lgbq, or of another faith or no faith. I personally commend your efforts and hope you continue this important work.

Re: “UPDATE: Felony charges dismissed against John San Agustin

I have entered this race to change the culture in the Sheriff's Office, provide some new leadership, and to restore the public trust. The endless lawsuits must stop and fiscal discipline return. We've been penning a series about the money issues there. Here's the latest. https://angley4sheriff.org/2017/10/20/foll…

Re: “Audience counters Douglas Bruce at election forum

Mayor Suther's was testy and almost seemed to be yelling at the audience while he blamed Bruce for pot holes and rain water. Wasn't it BACH and a most conservative Council that signed off on a Delivery system that required a revenue stream? Yes it was. Wasn't it BACH that screwed around with PPRTA so the City didn't receive the money it had in the past for pot holes - Yes it was.

Stop blaming Tabor for poorly worded ballot measures that do not ensure that once approved would allow increases without voter approval. The lady for d11 was not well voiced on several items.

Vote NO all around!

@JamesTurner You wrote: "If your goal is crowd defense, you should have side arms not rifles. Look at the secret service."

Are you kidding? You don't know much about the Secret Service. Do a Youtube search for "Secret Service fake arms" and watch the video. Yes, the agents walking along with Trump and his family have fake arms in their jacket. Why? Because each has one real arm exposed and one real arm under their long coat. And what are they holding under their long coats? Short rifles.

Re: “Audience counters Douglas Bruce at election forum

Ballots are out. Points pro and con have been made in various venues. Is it your opinion the stormwater measure 2A will pass or fail? Thank you.

Thanks for the update on the article. The corruption in Bill Elder's Sheriff's Office is slowly coming to a boil.

Thank you Ralph for a great run. I've enjoyed the Indy since moving to the city 12 years ago. I'll miss you and Rich Tosches but Pam and Adrian will do a great job going forward, as they have all along.

Re: “Local health care activists face charges despite Sen. Cory Gardner’s apparent request to dismiss

That CAN group sure was 'ready to be arrested'. They went to martyr themselves and been bragging about being arrested ever since. They want to be called heroes. Did they not tell Nat they want to go to trial, which is their right, because of hidden evidence? One of them paid the ticket took a year on probation. They were bragging about being arrested. One person who was on probation from the getting a ticket for the 'sit stand' protest didn't join them for that reason. Sorry Debra that the other women didn't tell you they were out to get arrested because they brag and brag and brag about it. I'm still not sure how getting a ticket is being called being arrested. You were all free to go once outside the building.

That CAN page came down fast with all the conversations about getting arrested and collecting money for the 'COS 4'. The organizers since figured they are gun toting socialists and had to re-brand because they aren't 'leftists'.

Mnchhausen Activists: A disorder wherein those feign being an ally to draw attention and sympathy.

Re: “Audience counters Douglas Bruce at election forum

Ms Cathey

Jill Gaebler chose to run for office and become an elected offcial giving the people a council of three members who appear to be able to understand and grasp numbers and six who appear continually perplexed by them.

The three who appear to have the ability to read their packets and understand the information therin are opposed to 2A.

As an elected official, the comments made verbally or in print by Jill Gaebler are fair game to be refereneced as Mrs. Carno. The statement below appears to be an accurate reprint of what Jill Gaebler actually said.

"City Council member Jill Gaebler says nobody should get a pass, and I agree with Gaebler."

This statement has been attributed to Mrs. Gaebler in different press organs and appears to be a true version of what she stated.

How is it 'less than truthful' on the part of Mrs. Carno to quote accurately what was stated or to reference Gaebler?

She said it. She owns it.

What might benefit the process is for Mrs. Gaebler to engage her brain before putting her mouth in gear. And rather than run for public office, consider becoming a door greeter at Walmart or something less demanding of critical thinking skills.

Re: “Mikey Weinstein talks “fighting words” and the military’s religious oppression in the Trump era

A battle has been joined between the dominionist fanatics of the right (which, 'tolerantly' includes homophobes, racists, anti-Semites - don't let the current judeophilia/Israel-worship fool you, misogynists, overt fascists & their 'alt-right' alter egos, climate science & evolution deniers) and the heirs of the enlightenment who genuinely embrace diversity, democracy, free thought, scientific inquiry, and equal rights for all as core values(the failures of our materialistic, success-obsessed, Capitalistic society to live up to those ideals notwithstanding). The societal dysfunction which currently afflicts America (and the west, in general) has resulted in a skewed quadrangular arrangement with the right wing & GOP (dominionist Christian Fundamentalists) at one corner, opposed by the Democrats (DNC/Clintonista wing, Wall Street beholden, neoliberal Capitalists, 'Red' herring obsessed, war-industry supported, which is neither 'liberal' or 'progressive'), neither of whom is capable of, or desires to deal with the realities they've created over the last decades and function only to gain superiority over the other in order to execute their own private agendas nationally & internationally absent concern for humanity or the common good. On the 3rd, and largest, corner of the quadrangle is the majority of Americans who yearn only for stability and some sense of security but who've been fed a diet of American exceptionalism and 'fake news' for so long that they no longer recognize what's real or how to sort the real from the unreal and are thus fodder for whichever of the two former groups is most able to herd them into their corner; which at present are the allies of the 'current occupant'. In the 4th & smallest corner are those who've been able to view the system with some degree of objectivity and understand that it is entirely broken with no 'savior' from either of the two main corners forthcoming but whose numbers are too small to exert any noticeable effect. History has shown us the nature of what's in store for mankind if the domionist right wing succeeds in Trumping (I use the word advisedly) humanistic values; Christian fascism as seen in the Inquisition or the Third Reich. This must not be allowed; Mikey & MRFF understand that. What might come out of our dysfunctional political system in the future is impossible to tell, but it's clear what must not be allowed. So, Silveria's failure to add Mikey's 'eight words' is, in essence, a failure to make a principled stand for the values of the enlightenment in favor of walking a tightrope in hopes of satisfying the two opposing ends of the political quadrangle. Not reassuring.
