I'm happy you're comfortable being a victim. Police are usually minutes away when seconds count. Good luck to you

Re: “CSPD Chief Carey: city needs more than 100 more officers

Time to bolster the CSPD! Violent crime is the norm nowadays on the evening news! Response times are so long because they don't have the necessary staffing. It's not rocket science folks. Vote for 2A or shut up! Better yet, apply to the PD rather than being an armchair police officer!

Re: “TABOR author on question 1A

Thanks Mr Bruce for writing the piece. On my own I had figured out this was something to vote no on. Many dont realize I-25 is not a local issue. (Though the traffic issues are local!)
The underlying point is that politicians are merely, illegally, grabbing more money. Its like giving heroin to an addict, they always want more and will lie, cheat and steal to support their habit.

Re: “TABOR author on question 1A

Interesting to note that the guy supposedly selling his snake oil to the gullible had his charity cleared by the IRS in the original tax trial but the TABOR hater judge in Denver would not allow the fact into evidence!

It's not the job of citizens in Colorado Springs to fund I-25. We should not be overriding the State Constitution with a local vote! Vote "NO" in November.

Isn't this from the guy found guilty of money laundering, attempted bribery, and tax fraud then violated his probation? Yeah... no thanks.

Re: “Pueblo's marijuana museum fizzles

Aubree Adams,
Are you trying to say all Cannabis use is drug use?
What about people that only take CBD for medical reasons they do not get high from CBD, do you even understand that?
For you to feel that way is like me saying all alcohol use is the same when the real truth is only 15% of alcohol users are alcoholics and the rest can use it or leave it. That and the problems associated with prohibition of alcohol or Cannabis are worse then the substances them selves, or did you forget?
People like you created prohibition and it failed, admit it.

Re: “Inequity in city’s parks and open spaces must be addressed

Pretty sure when they convinced us to approve Lotto in Colorado (1982), parks and rec. was one of their selling points. Colorado legislation is consistent in one area: lies. Next one is marijuana sales tax. Pretty sure I haven't met one school member that's reaped the benefits of this tax either. In fact it seems there's more ballot additions asking for more school funding (i.e. 11, 3, 2) this year than in years past. The only benefit I've seen from marijuana sales is an increase in local crime and ease of access for young folks (especially minorities). Do an article on these ideas. I like your articles, they raise awareness, but I'd like to see action; awareness only goes so far.

Re: “Maggie's Farm - Manitou

All of Maggies Weed has the same hard feel and appearance almost like its being coated and cured to weigh more...just saying. I have been smoking Maggies weed since they opened on and off because the pricing is criminal The prices in my opinion exploit weed users, they are 3x what pricing should be. If I want to pay out of state pricing then I wouldnt live here. Over all Maggies runs a stellar business and recently I had some kushage that treated my illness better then any strain has in a while. I am fair in my reviews not sensitive to feelings,so here we go! As someone who likes to grow, Weed activist, and consumer its annoying to watch a product that costs virtually nothing get racked up to 3x what it should be(and lets be real the company isnt struggling). I want to see a store with fair pricing open up. Good pricing isnt good just because out of state people come to your store, show that you care for locals and drop the damn prices FFS. More then 20$ and eight is just insane....not everyone wants a red card despite how sick they may be. We didnt come this far to beat big pharmaceutical, for every weed store to act like one and jack prices up....also what ever you are putting on your weed STOP!! I can taste it. All your weed taste chemically treated for whatever reason, and doesnt have the normal earthy green pine tree etc aromas when smoked it has weird chemical after tastes. Greed is going to ruin this revolution. Just keeping it real. Also stop criminalizing your patients in a damn cattle call, and you will have more business. We arent druggies waiting in line for a fix from the next heroin dealer, we are people, utilizing a cure through cannibus...treat us as such.

Re: “Dreamers target Doug Lamborn

If this Congressman does anything that smacks of amnesty; he is going to kill his own chances of surviving his primary with 4? think thats the number we are up to; opponents. At least 2 of them; do not support amnesty at all.

The DACA kids getting amnesty and without any other changes in our immigration laws; mean we will be importing millions more of their relatives once they have US citizensship. The Dreamers are a much bigger group; then the 700000 existing DACA kids; so they would be bringing in many millions more of their relatives. Each illegal Mexican who gets amnesty brings in over 6 of their family mambers and that would include their parents who brought them here to do just that. That means in 10 years; we will have millions more through chain migration and most of them will not even bother to learn English or assimulate as we make it so easy for them to be here; legally or illegally.

Trump got elected due to this issue and its time we put enforcement first and if Congressman Lamborn doesnt get that; he can be easily replaced.

NO amnesty. NO work permits. NO nothing but deportation.

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

Interesting that the religious nuts use insults and threats to express their ideology, but those opposed to their attempt to force all Americans to their altars use reason to express their beliefs.
And they get nowhere, thanks to the last 50 plus or minus years of propagandizing from the people who believe that they and they alone know what is good for the country and what will happen to us when we die.
And they base their beliefs on a book revised and re-written so many times over the centuries that it's barely recognized as a sort of similar text. Like reading a science book called Green Eggs and Ham and believing it's the word of a god.
People might need their bankies to get through life, but it would be nice if they stopped asking the rest of us to chew on the same mangled corners of it as they do.
