Fundamentalists might heed a Catholic, or not

But some will be swayed by people who only speak English, and that not much goodly, (bad joke and I'd have to go to a seance and ask Shakespeare if it's actually grammatically correct, which leads to==>>) but will insist that Shakespearean/Jacobite English mistranslates "Thou Shalt Not Kill" when the original Hebrew grammar translates as "Thou Shalt Not MURDER", that killing human beings on ones own initiative is Very Bad, Wicked, Naughty and (rightfully at that) considered "murder" and a crime, sin and a flaw in the basic working of the Human Soul. Whereas doing it at the command of the King (basically because somebody else told you to do it and you're too weak-minded to question his authority to demand such actions) is actually ordained by God as being righteous. Thus somebody who also doesn't speak any language other than English, and that poorly, like the fire-non-fighters from Tennessee recently made "Conservative" icons, can also insist that since the Shakespeare/King James English translated Ancient Hebrew badly, BECAUSE SOMEBODY ELSE WHO SPEAKS NEITHER jACOBITE ENGLISH NOR ANCIENT HEBREW TOLD HIM SO AND HE'S TOO WEAK MINDED TO QUESTION THAT PERSONS INTERPRETATION OF TWO LANGUAGES WHICH THAT PERSON DOES NOT SPEAK, WRITE OR ACTUALLY READ... permits him to commit Arson-by-default by refusing to extinguish a potentially fatal home fire even though he had the equipment, training and a job which gives him the actual duty to extinguish potentially fatal home fires. Also support executions and wars as being valid because Other People with government jobs said so.

If foreign citizens aren’t allowed to vote

... and the "U.S." Chamber of Commerce is opposed to Undocumented Workers unless they can really exploit them heavily, and use their presence to exploit the OTHER American Workers, Why then has the Chamber been accepting and funneling into congressional races HUGE amounts of campaign contributions from Corporations in Bahrain, Turkey, Israel (of course) Saudi Arabia, China (both), Japan, South Korea, VietNam, India, Thailand, The U.A.E., Egypt, Russia, and just anywhere else in the world that Corporate "leaders" like WalMart and Halliburton and McDonalds can exploit the workers, at a cost of American jobs, Contributions to Fascist Freaks like Ken Buck, Tom Tancredo, Dan Maes, Owen Hill, Pete Lee, all of the Foreign Job-Sucking Corporate Cash being used to buy expensively designed, printed and mailed flyers, campaign tours, radio and television attack ads and legions of chirpy phone bank "Volunteers" who will assure us that it's Democrats, and ONLY Democrats, who caused the Republican Wall Street Bankers, the Corporate Insurance Death Panels, and of course Offshoring of American Jobs, twisted their Republican Corporate Whore Arms to use all these tools to build a Corporate Fascism in American and foreign politics and to crash the economy of the world, America, and Colorado. These are the same smarmy Corporate sucks who screamed loudly their FOX news propagated OUTRAGE! when the New York Times gave a discount to MoveOn.org on a newspaper advertisement critical of George W Bush. And also said repeatedly, loudly, ANGRILY, that any criticism of George W Bush in the media would be a de-facto contribution to the Democratic National Committee. What a bunch of Lying Hypocritical Pukes. Nothing new there. When Pete Lee, Owen Hill, Ken Buck, Douglas Bruce, Dan Maes, Tom Tancredo, any of their Fox News and Hate-speech Radio pukes get to talking about how they're concerned about the well being of the working people in America they're lying through their fat, porky Corporate Fed faces. Not a single one of them would lift a single manicured delicate dainty effete Elitist finger to do REAL work himself, nor would they lift a finger to help REAL workers any more than they would REAL Soldiers or REAL anybody of any version of Workers who they pretend to be. Same-ass Lame-ass thing goes for their Tea Party Corporate Funded and Corporate Organized Astroturf "grassroots" lying cowardly supporters. When you hear the words "American Crossroads" on the radio or TV attack ads, remember that's an organization run by and stolen from by Karl Rove, the Fat Piggish Lying ChickenHawk PUKE who helped Cheney and Bush lie us into two incredibly expensive wars, the SAME wars which have bankrupted America. And the rest of the world too. I mentioned "Stolen from" because Karl Rove is the kind of thief who steals just to stay in practice. It's important to note: NONE of these shitbuzzards are actually Pathological Liars, naturals at the game. They went to school specifically to train themselves to be Professional Liars. Pathological liars and Kleptomaniacs are insane, and it's reflected in the unbelievable extravagance of

Contaminants in the runoff water

Seems they predate the Homeless Camping debate by at least a decade. One of the problems that was present when the City and County of Pueblo sued Colorado Springs for fouling their water, e-coli. Seems Colorado Springs and Springs Utilities reached a plea-bargain mitigating the judgment against the Springs by making necessary repairs to the sewage system. This includes that bad ol' StormWater that the right wingsters keep whining about. The wastewater treatment facilities were overwhelmed on several levels, not the least of which were the BlowHard Extremists like Douglas Bruce not wanting to pay their bills. Have their cake, eat it too, and then have somebody else pay for the cake. The sewer system including the Storm Drains, which funnel water off the streets, which in turn are coated with an oily residue from the exhaust fumes. More cars, more pavement, more pollution and all of it running into a sewage treatment system last upgraded in the early 1960s. 50 years ago. More streets, more infrastructure added on, and each year the cost of the labor and the materials needed to build and maintain that infrastructure increasing, yet Doug Bruce and his dumbass Zombie Followers insist on only paying the bills in 1972 dollars. And screaming that increasing the fees necessary to maintain that infrastructure and build new infrastructure to accommodate those victims of the Real Estate Scam of "Pure Rocky Mountain Spring Water" moving to town and making the water somewhat less pure. Lethally less pure. Some of the impurities in Fountain Creek before the confluence with Monument Creek keep the smelly algae that makes Monument stink so bad from growing. Also any other algae, insect larvae, and amphibian newts, efts and tadpoles. N-Nitrosodimethylamine, likely sources:Industry, cosmetics, toiletry products, cleansers; by-product of natural chemical reactions. That's the one Springs Utilities admits is beyond EPA and drinking water safety bounds. Chemicals they say are in "safe amounts" Barium, Bromodichloromethane Chlorodibromomethane Chloroform Fluoride Hexachlorocyclopentadiene Nitrates Radium, Combined 226 228 Sodium, Turbidity (muddiness) Uranium Chlorine Maloacetic Acids Trihalomethanes Coliform (bacteria) E-Coli (the coliform bacteria they're blaming on the Homeless People, before that it was the pigeons in Manitou Springs) Copper Lead A lot of the "possible sources of contamination" listed are Erosion of native deposits. Erosion hastened by destroying topsoil, uprooting native plants, GRADING FOR ROADS, COMMERCIAL AND HOUSING CONSTRUCTION, MINING, QUARRYING, DRILLING, TIMBER CLEARING, OFF-ROAD "RECREATIONAL" VEHICLE USE For instance, there's at least one defunct copper mine just outside Manitou Springs city limits that drains directly into Fountain Creek. When you pull ONE metal out of the earth, it's not in pure form, ever, is it, O Right Wing Mining Geniuses Who Think I Can't Possibly Know Anything? Nay verily. It is NOT pure and some of those impurities are other metals. Toxic metals like Uranium, White Arsenic, Sodium in many forms including Sodium Cyanide, Mercury, Lead, Copper, ooops that's one they INTENDED to pull out oopsie my bad. Petrochemicals, mountaintop removal for extracting ANY mineral including coal releases chemicals into the waters that have recently been shown to cause a hormonal mutation in small-mouth bass where the male fish develop with

Transit Authority “Let them Eat Cake” meeting Oct 11

Public meeting that was scheduled for this past Monday, 27 Sep 2010, postponed until Monday after next, the 11th of October. Strong-arm Mayor Rivera and his Puppet Council are pushing to sever Front Range Express, thus ending any chance of a Regional transportation system, along with the Ute Pass bus service, welcomed by so many in the Back Range because it gives the people as far away as Divide, or really any place like Florissant or Cripple Creek or Guffey a chance to park the gas guzzlers and make the trip down 24 the RIGHT way. The Rich folk don't seem to care because they can always hop into their Corporate Welfare Subsidized Cars and drive to Denver or Divide, threaten anybody who dares to share their Own Personal Road with them and deduct the money spent, including gas, maintenance and even the cost of their vehicles as "Business Expenses", leaving the rest of us to pay for their luxury. Way to GO, Rich Bitches! I'm certain that Janis Beep-beep, Mayor Rivera, Bernie Herpin and the other Thieves who prey on the tax base like that, will of course honor the soldiers they send to foreign lands to suppress the price of gasoline and ensure that those Naughty Nationalists in OTHER nations don't develop any perilous notions like the idea that they can offer their resources to whoever they choose, rather than giving it to the US and British oil companies at the prices the U.S. and British Oil Companies want to pay. They'll honor them by laying wreaths at the national cemeteries, on designated holidays, get plenty of free advertising in the way of Right Wing Media reports on how very "patriotic" they are, and they'll charge the costs of the wreaths and the costs of transporting them to the cemeteries and memorials from their taxes as "charitable deductions". Meanwhile they're talking about cutting off the bus service at 1:00 PM and ending the Front Range Express and Ute Pass bus services. All the (other peoples) money they would have to otherwise pay for bus maintenance and operations, thus would be in places and situations where it would be easier for them to steal it. Their meeting where Rivera and his accomplices are expected to once more tell us to eat sh.. errr "cake" and die, is October 11th and will of course be during regular working hours, therefore those of us Bus Riding Peasants who are hanging on to our gainful employment will be excluded from the meeting. If they're true to form it will be at 2 PM and you'll have to check your torches and pitchforks at the door and go through security checkpoints to gain the privilege of City Council sneering at you in person.

Doug Bruce on video mouthing off about “illiterate peasants”

When Rivera shot off his own foot saying something similar, at least he wasn't running for Mayor (can't, term limits) To be fair, the "Illiterate Peasants" he was referencing weren't the Bus Riding Public who incidentally are the Working Class who support him and the rest of the Parasite Class. They're seasonal labor Farm Workers who quite literally feed his fat piggy ass and those of his Parasite Class comrades. The ones who, like him, feel that the bus service and the people who ride the bus to WORK, mostly, are extraneous and needn't be considered. One attitude spills into the other and then back again. "5000 Illiterate Peasants", compared to your similar indictments of people riding the bus? When Mayor Rivera said something similar, the "illiterate peasants" with whom I was riding the bus and discussing this same issue (Before the Big Purge of bus service) were a retired lady, with really bad health problems that come from aging, and a SCHOOLTEACHER who is blind from birth. I personally can't drive because of my neurological problems, similarly, from birth. Mayor Lyin' el had said that only bums and winos ride the bus. You could tell right there that he wasn't running for re-election. Doug Bruce and his accomplices at "Citizens for Accountable Leadership" who aren't "accountable" enough to put their Leaders Name (Doug Bruce) on their corporate letterhead even as a member of the board, are petitioning for a "strong executive mayoral city government". And it's just a coincidence that Bruce, Former Prosecutor, is rumored to be wanting another run for Mayor. Of COURSE it's just a coincidence. Doug Bruce would never lie, unless of course he needs to lie or just wants to lie. Nor would any of his Accomplic errr I mean "Associates" yeah, that's the ticket, Associates. By the way, Doug, if somebody is reading this to you... I don't like cops in any form, especially the Prosecutor type. I feel strongly that as a Prosecutor you would by default have covered many a crime committed "in the line of duty" by your fellow pigs. Especially as you feel that certain Racist Urge to dismiss whole segments of the people who work to support your system as "Illiterate Peasants" the way you did the farm workers. And, Brucie-baby, when I was riding the bus that day, Illiterate Peasant schoolteacher was on her way to work, Illiterate Peasant Senior Citizen lady was on her way from one of the Senior Centers which you're in the process of closing, to her home. SHE was worried because your shadow-government was cutting Saturday bus service off at 5 PM on the route she rides from her home to Church on Saturday evenings. Correction, (damnation, only an ILLITERATE PEASANT could possibly make such an error... RODE the bus to her church services... because you and your Noble, Intellectually Superior Ilk managed to get Saturday bus services cut off completely.) The third Illiterate Peasant, moi meme sui, who speaks three languages and has a larger English vocabulary than YOU

Putting Doug Bruce petitions on the run

WESTSIDE, COLORADO SPRINGS- A signature gatherer pushing Doug Bruce petitions was doing miserably well outside the Uintah King Soopers today, but I was able to interrupt for the quarter hour I could spare. Give him your 15-cents worth when you come for groceries. He'll run, watch: As you go in, and when you come out, take a few minutes to intervene as this guy collects signatures to lower municipal taxes. These kind of measures are why the bathrooms remain locked in our city parks, and why the city and county have had to cut back on services. But the signature collectors won't tell you who's behind their petitions. Nor have they any answers about the ramifications of their proposed legislation. Unfortunately this guy is otherwise very good at drawing people in. In the photograph above, note that he has three clipboards distributed, and he's trying for a fourth, notice two customers have pen in hand. Ask him if Doug Bruce is behind these petitions. He told me he didn't know. I knew, so I told him, and I occasioned to help him inform others as he approached westside residents. When the name "Doug Bruce" is mentioned, people smile and steer clear. This guy kept his distance sooner than entertain a discussion. You need only stand by the door to ward him off. Obviously I couldn't do that forever. He resumed as soon as I left. When I came back from the car with my camera, he saw me coming, gathered his clipboards and split. Now it was no surprise to me that he wouldn't want to be documented doing what he was, but an impartial observer might wonder, what was his hurry? This guy took off on a dead run and reconsidered only when he realized I followed straight after and was overtaking him. He ran from me so fast I wished I'd recorded the scene in video. Well, next time.

Tea Party Tax Revolt ignorance-mongers rally their usual Republican supporters

COLORADO SPRINGS- The corporate media led by Fox News, local talk radio led by KVOR, and the Gazette editorial page itself, herded their red sheep into Acacia Park today for lunch-time speeches full of hate, ignorance, and good old-fashioned unapologetic self-interest. They didn't understand my sign, but knew enough to scowl. Gazette representative Maria St. Louis-Sanchez was live-blogging the event, sitting on the ground beside the stage, which gave her an appropriate lack of perspective for the coverage she intended. For example, this online exchange: 12:33 [Comment From Guest] Is it basically an all white gathering? 12:34 Tough to tell. There seems to be a good mix of people here. Oh my goodness. The crowd was ALL WHITE! With the lonely exception of deposed-councilman Ed Jones, who delighted the crowd when he proclaimed he was not an African American, he was an American, and derided those critics who would call him an "Uncle Tom." The crowd cheered Jones, there were even chants exhorting him to run for governor. But if this had been nightfall, and one depression earlier, this is the mob that would have lynched him. And I'm inclined to imagine that had Jones been Hispanic American, judging from the anti-immigrant rhetoric, they would have jumped him in broad daylight today. These were ugly Americans, led by their representative uglies, hate-radio DJ Richard Randall, representative Doug "Porky" Lamborn, the illiterate Quixote Douglas Bruce and business-homophobe Ed Bircham. All pure archetypes of disgruntled white males. The demographics in my estimation were all white, mostly male, with ugly carved into everyone's faces from years of being disagreeable and bitter. And a plentiful predominance of pasty obesity.

Demonstrate Saturday to remove racist El Paso County Commissioner, Douglas Bruce, from office

We have some real losers holding reigns of power in Colorado. We are talking people like racists Tom Tancredo, Colorado Congressman from the 6th District centered by nearby pueblito, Castle Rock, and local yokel racist, Douglas Bruce, El Paso County Commissioner and Colorado State Congressperson both. Both these men are totally unfit for office, even though one of them actually had the temerity to run for President of the US! Tomorrow is your chance to demonstrate against these two racist clowns, and to demand that they both be censured and removed from the offices they hold. Tom Tancredo, you shouldn't get a free pass tomorrow either, though it is the toad, Douglas Bruce, that is the immediate target of the demonstration. In fact, you are the ignorant peasant that gives fuel to the other Colorado dimwit, Don Bruce, who is actually a transplant (from Southern California), another Right Wing loser region of our country, like our own Colorado Springs. Actually, I happen to be a transplant myself from yet another loser Right Wing idiot center of the US, called the not so great State of Texas. I have nothing against immigrants from other parts of the Americas at all, You Right Wing Bastard pigs! (Oh sorry, I'm not behaving very well, Dear Aryan brothers.) What sparked the call for a demonstration, were the most recent anti-immigrant comments of the not so-beloved El Paso County Commissioner, Senor Bruce, who got his rocks off calling immigrants from Latin America illiterate peasants. Douglas Bruce is a long time slum lord, who actually likes to abuse immigrants for profit by renting sub standard housing to these hard workers from other lands. I really can't stand these racist and hateful bullies. I will be there at Acacia Park tomorrow on Saturday at 3 PM. Hope to see you there, Paisanos. Just say No to racist meatheads being allowed to stay in political office. Deport them out of their seats of power, where they can only do injustice to others.
