Pion Canyon slowly being conquered by Imperialists

It's not just apparent, it's Elephant-in-the-parlor obvious that the Pentagon assumes they own not only every square centimeter of Foreign lands conquered by their Legion of Doom Imperial Stormtroopers. Every square centimeter in America too. Ed has put together a short collection of videos pointing up the planned assault on Americans by American Military, something that wasn't available a century and a half ago when the Imperial Storm Troopers wore blue uniforms with yellow stripes on the legs and rode horses as they murdered Americans to take the land. The first I'm posting, actually the middle of the series, he takes the "fightin' words" the TeaBag racist scum use. Points out that the Tea Potty really doesn't defend the rights and freedoms of Individual Citizens, rather, they defend the Privileges of Corporate "citizens". If the ranches in Pion Canyon were owned by Halliburton, maybe? And The prequel to the one above this. And And the last of the series, in its proper order. 20491

PCMS wildfire initiates Army PHASE 1B

PINON CANYON MANEUVER SITE, Colo- The US Army refused assistance in fighting the PCMS Bridger Fire, and now it's jumped the Pergatoire River and is leading the aquisition of PARCELS 1B and 2A, a year ahead of the Army's until now thwarted expansion schedule. 3515

Pinon Canyon public meeting WED 3PM

COLORADO SPRINGS, COLO- As previously announced, the Army is conduction a public scoping meeting on May 21 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Colorado Springs about their tentative Pinon Canyon takings. At 6:30pm they'll outline their need to Grow-The-Army (GTA) on account of the GD-GWOT. Southeastern Colorado ranchers intend to voice their opposition at an early session 3-6pm and boycott the 6:30 public relations meeting. Here's an invitation from Bill Sulzman: 3365

No Army expansion into Pinon Canyon

PUEBLO, COLORADO- The Pinon Canyon Expansion Opposition Coalition (PCMiSCRAP) folks are parking semi-trailer billboards along I-25 to make certain the US Army expansion team gets their message. The ranchers have also scheduled their own public meetings to preempt the Army "Public Scoping" PR presentations. 3363

Mercury Fulminate in Fountain Creek

I noticed something about the Rampart Range cleanup controversy but dont know if I posted it here. A few months ago (before the Range became, as always, a sheet of impenetrable ice) there was a story in the Indy about it. Only, the focus was on Lead. Lead, it was pointed out by the Anti-environmental people, is hard to dissolve in water. Therefore it wasnt in any way responsible for the sudden spike in toxins in the Manitou spirit-water. 2724

On JAN 14 let us not expand Ft Carson

Please attend the upcoming Fort Carson expansion town hall meeting at the Antlers Hilton on January 14. Let the pro-military, pro-business representatives know what you think about making Colorado Springs even more dependent on poor paying jobs, predatory businesses, and skyrocketing social problems. Only developers, car-dealers, pawn shops, strip clubs, liquor stores, social workers, jails and mortuaries benefit from a higher soldier population. The rest of us suffer increased crime and their children's behavioral problems in our schools. Plus can you imagine the Army is going to use an expanded Ft Carson as pretext to seize Pinon Canyon for their maneuvers?   Has there ever been a city to prosper by hosting military bases? Colorado Springs is awash with Defense Department facilities and look where it's got us! El Paso County is cutting services left and right. Soldiers reduce the tax base, they pay fewer taxes, they register their vehicles out of state, and their spouses require more social services. As a result, El Paso is scaling back its County Health Department. For starters they're closing the STD clinic by next year. More soldiers = fewer STDs? I don't think so.

Defense industry’s so-called gravy train

Senator Ken Salazar described Colorado Springs as a crown jewel in our nation's defense arsenal. The Pikes Peak area is indeed a magnet for the weapons industry because of our military installations. We have Fort Carson (3rd Armored Cav), Peterson AFB (Missile Space Command), Schriever AFB, of course NORAD and the Air Force Academy. We even have a land-locked high-altitude facility for the Navy. 2242

Solitary confinement blocks for Ft Carson

Mark Lewis has been sent photographs taken by an alert Southeast Coloradan, of trucks laden with strange cargo for the Ft Carson PCMS. Strapped to each truck bed are several self contained units, of what appear to be modular living quarters, if your idea of a studio apartment is a single room, five foot by ten. On one end of each there's a window in the form of a single narrow slit and at the other end a door with a similar window and a small utility door. If you were to imagine a place to conceal the Man in the Iron Mask in 21st Century prefab construction material, this would be it. The modular design looks like they're made to fit into a honeycomb, reached by way of metal grates. A recent executive order has cleared the way for military bases to house civilian detention facilities. I imagined barracks like the WWII internment camps. These accommodations look more suited to Guantanamo.

Tom Warren- GreenGo pimp for the Pentagon

Tom Warren feigns being a folksy, bearded, hippy ranger-ranch type, and is the perfect Pentagon GreenGo pimp to be in charge of the public's manipulation by the military to put Fort Carson expansion into place in Pinion Canyon. 2090

Ken Salazar lulls people to sleep on Pinon Canyon expansion

Senator Ken Salazar wants to look like he is leading an opposition to military plans to expand Fort Carson. Unfortunately, many are buying it, but his 'opposition' to base expansion is without any principles behind it and is totally superficial. Just what does 'a one year delay' really mean, anyway? 1895

Military takeover of Southeast Colorado

It was a disappointment to read about a potential betrayal of the rural folk who cherish their family farms and ranches and dont wish to sell to the Army at Fort Carson, and again last week in Colorado Springs when only pro-military leaders and the Chamber of Commerce expounded on the need for expansion. What a terrible hoax to think anything connected with war business could be considered a crown jewel and national security keystone. 2684

State senator John Morse the little shit

We stood outside City Hall today, holding our banners against the Pinon Canyon expansion. We watched the pro-military-business suits stream past us. Most were cordial, some pretended we were not there. A fully uniformed OIF soldier greeted us warmly, explaining that he'd been in Iraq twice and would go again in a heartbeat. He loved "killing the Iraqis and stacking them up like cord-wood. An enemy is an enemy" he said laughing as he ascended the steps.   But the worst was Colorado state senator John Morse, Democrat. 1762

National Cemetery I-25 scenic viewpoint

Did you hear Senator Salazar say at this morning's city council chambers meeting, that he'd like to see as part of the Fort Carson expansion, a local national military cemetery to rival the one at Arlington? Because as retired General Bentley Rayburn reported, there's a growing need, "and Fort Logan's filling up." Always thinking about our boys, aren't they? 1758

Sen. Salazar surveys the public opinion

Ken Salazar has called a meeting at the COS City Council chambers Wednesday Aug 29 to solicit the opinion of local area representatives about the proposed Pinon Canyon Maneuver Site expansion. The public is invited to attend (10am tomorrow) but the 15 representatives have already been selected. Invited to speak are: 1721

Bucket brigade then tar and feather

I'd like to ask you to look closely at the the photograph of ranchers assembled in Trinidad to reject the PCMS expansion and Senator Salazar's support of the taking of their land. 1591

Senator Salazar and the Military Industrial Congressional Complex

Bill Sulzman attended Ken Salazar's public meeting in Trinidad yesterday addressing the Pion Canyon expansion. This from Bill:   Salazar came across as a bumbling idiot. The questions he keeps asking are merely rhetorical. He doesn't want answers. He just continues to hide behind them. The "crown jewel" remarks which are referred to in the Chieftain story went on at some length and were downright scary. He is a proud, card carrying member of the military, industrial congressional complex. 1583

Who is losing Pinon Canyon

I caught a quick glimpse of this picture just inside a recent Indy, the issue about Pion Canyon expansion, and quickly closed the paper. The banners and rebar in front of Toons are falling to disrepair, so I cringed to see what attention they'd drawn. 1542

Desert Rock protests

I might have missed something in 'The Gazette', but I sincerely doubt it. The assholes that run that paper are keeping Colorado Springs uninformed of an environmental struggle going on right down the road from us. I am referring to the mainly Navajo protest against the construction of a new power plant in the Four Corners area. See these photos of the Desert Rock Vigil now taking place. 944

Fort Carson expansion plans sustained

Last week's Fort Carson Environmental Sustainability Conference. Remember the Army's conception of a "sustainable environment?" Sustain the mission, secure the future.   Yesterday's town forum at the Antlers Hotel to discuss the expansion of Fort Carson was a similar assemblage of only pro-military voices. Two senators and several congressmen were in attendance, even the Democrat among them cheered the Army. In a side room to entertain questions about the Pinon Canyon land aquisitions, Senator Salazar's assistant Richard Skorman attempted to placate the crowd. "It may not happen" he reasoned. 637

Fort Carson Strangelove

It could have been Doctor Strangelove. The photograph I wish I had taken was of the Tom Warren, the representative of Fort Carson, assigned to ride over the public outcry about the Army's plans to annex more land, Pinon Canyon and beyond, for a training ground eventually to extend over the entire corner of Southeast Colorado. 544

The evolution debate ist tot

We're going to see the dinosaur tracks in Pinon Canyon this weekend. We'll hike along the Pergatoire River which runs through southeastern Colorado and retrace a quarter mile long trail left by a brontosaurus.   At issue for my companions is what to make of theologians who would like us to believe that the Earth is only as old as The Bible says, something like 6,000 years. I'd like to contemplate that idea from the perspective of standing in a footprint made 150 million years ago. Supposedly.   Is carbon-dating flawed? Are scientists misleading mankind? It only matters if you want to believe that the christian bible is literally true. If the bible represents truth in the context of man's understanding of the natural world at the time, then our new scientific understandings are not really suspect at all. 363

Pinon Canyon land grab

The US Army at Fort Carson is trying to annex a million acres of Southeastern Colorado to test its new weapons. The area is called Pinon Canyon and contains the longest extant dinosaur tracks anywhere. The 150 million year-old Allosaur and Brontosaur tracks extend one quarter mile along the Purgatory River. 352
