Colorado Springs cuts into services considered basic by many - The Denver Post



Well think we should try this on a Nationwide level?

Ever heard of broke JTF? What does broke have to do with Tea Partiers, other than they're pissed that we're BROKE?

Hey guess what slave? You have the right to bear arms. You are the ultimate protector of your own life. Since when have the police been there to save you anyway?

Cops are nothing more than social janitors. They pick up the pieces, draw chalk around your corpse, and then try to find out what happened. They're a deterrent at best and revenue collecting arrogant punks at worse.

I personally can't wait until the Henrico Police get the can. Once they're out of the way I can TCB! :headbange

Re: Tea Party America preview

Having lived in Colo Springs for several years, this is a tactic that was used frequently in the 1990's. Colorado had an amendment (don't know if they still do) that required voter approval of any tax increase, so EVERY election, there would be dire stories of how the major government jobs would suffer, and then maybe a week or two later, a civic group against tax hikes would show how other, non essential jobs were being spared and in the end the tax hikes usually failed, and the city continued on with no rampaging crime as a result. It's actually not a bad place to live. Just no oceans

Man, I loved living in Colorado Springs! Best city I have ever lived or visited in the US.... That's all. Nothing to add to the political discussion.

Re: Tea Party America preview

Actually, Colorado Springs thrives on the military. The main boulevard, Academy dead ends at the north at the Air Force Academy, and on the south end it passes by the entrance to Fort Carson, a major US Army post, and where I served. To the east is Peterson Air Base, and in the mountain to the west is NORAD. Yes the city has developed some other economies, but the wars and military spending only boost the Colorado Springs economy

Do you really believe a fraction of the stuff that you post????? I would strongly suggest just a bit more research before posting because you often aren't putting yourself in the best light with many of your posts.

Those bases not only employ military personnel, but civilians in the local area and use local civilian contractors for many base support functions. Military bases bring in huge dollars to their local economies.

Ok, so i didn't mention Northrupp Gruman or the other slew of contractors who are employed across from the USAFA or through out the region. Believe me when I say Colo Springs is a military and contractor economy.

Obama and the Dems are in control now and have been since Jan. 2009. Why don't they shut the wars down, they have the power and control?

Increases in Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Interest on the national debt all make the deficit bigger not just the wars.

Re: Tea Party America preview

I am not arguing that millitary bases bring in money to local communities, they do. The money being spent on the War is mostly spent at Lockheed Martin, etc, not bases. Everytime they kill a Taliban, that's 10 million dollars please. The trillion dollars spent on the war this year has not made any solidiers richer. Hell thats enough to give every soliier how many dollars? They won't see it. Some CEO's bonus will be spent on some chick with the money we borrowed that is making our deficit stupid big.
