Subsidized Housing here in the Springs… For the RICHEST…

Make like General Palmer and GRAB some beauty… you know, the Monument to Treaty Breaking, Corporate Welfare Queen real estate developer From Hell and now IN HELL where he belongs William Jackson Palmer, Glen Eyrie

General’s castle still showplace/ Glen Eyrie open for teas, tours …
Jun 13, 2003 … There are 18 rooms available for overnight stays in the castle and 138 more on the property. Make like General Palmer and grab some beauty …

Yeah, not only are we required to Worship his graven image in the middle of the intersection of Platte and Nevada, through annual maintenance and of course the added danger of having a monstrously huge object blocking the view of Living People in the crosswalks just trying to get from one side of the street to the other without being crushed by a monster SUV…

Being driven by a Rich Idiot who believes nobody will notice that it’s a replacement penis.

But we’re also required to subsidize his Castle, his monument to the Glory and Mighty Empire of the Real Estate Developers… like the ones the Poorest are now obliged to Kiss Their Royal Asses and not sully the “beauty” of the Stolen Land, not be visible where the Rich Pigs and their PIglets will have to look upon their poverty.

Where we’ll be paying the Colorado Springs Gestapo Department to force the poor into Work Camps, maybe with a sign at the gate of each “shelter facility” that says “Arbeit Mach Frei”

Yes, we’re required to bow and Worship the Almighty Rich-Bitch even though he’s long dead. And pay literal tribute to his descendants.

    Eh? I don’t think that the castle at Glen Eyrie gets any public funds – it is on private property, right?

  2. Avatar Brother Jonah says:

    Actually, the property it’s on is technically nobody’s property, It’s treaty land. A treaty which General Palmer broke, with a little help from his Army friends. He got the money to construct it from a railroad deal, land given to the Railroads by the yankee government.
    He bought his commission in the Army, at the time he joined it was standard practice, and really, graduates of the Service Academies got their “appointments” to those academies because of their wealth and family name. Much like John McCain going to Annapolis because his daddy was an Admiral. Only in the 19th century it was even more blatant.
    He bought the parcels of land from the Rail company thieves on credit, using an arranged loan from the same Croney Club who arranged his Military Career.

    Not much merit involved there.

    “His” private property? He did NOTHING to earn it. The particular land on which the Castle rests is public land of the most basic nature. The people in whose face he was displaying his power, the Indian nations locally and afar, consider it to be Holy Ground. It was recognized as such.

    Just not, you know, by Palmer. Or his accomplices.

    And now, his “private” property is defended by Public Money from anybody doing the same thing to “his” land that he did to everybody’s land.

    Also it’s up for sale, and until the Land Developers broke the economy in the past three years, the City of Colorado Springs was considering buying it as a park.

    His castle is cursed, stained by the blood of those he had Murdered in order to seize the land on which it stands.

    It’s why he got his back broken while it was being completed, according to Indian legend.

    His graven image is also maintained directly at public expense. And indirectly in the amount of accidents caused by its location. It’s a rather STUPID place to put a statue, especially when there’s a perfectly serviceable park right next to it.

    I’ve personally had at least 10 near misses from people whipping around the statue in a left turn and not being able to see me in the crosswalk. While I had the light.

    In the Up-is-Down, War is Peace, Love is Hate, Freedom is Slavery and Ignorance is Strength Orwellian attitude of the city, it’s MY fault for being in the crosswalk. Go figure.

    So we’re literally paying Tribute to his memory long after his long ago but long overdue transition to Hell.

  3. The “castle as guesthouse” also gets development grant money and tax breaks.

    Nobody who is a follower/disciple/sycophant of the Palmer Legend would touch it any other way.
