    Colorado cities reject Bloomberg Rolling Stone slam, pro-gun towns so rural lack road

    DENVER | Colorado Springs and Pueblo may not be Paris or London, but they are not quite the rural backwaters that anti-gun activist Michael Bloomberg apparently thinks they are. The former New York City mayor said he was “sorry” about the recalls of two Democratic state senators last year over the state legislature’s passage of gun control laws, but said the districts in the recall races were so “rural” that “I don’t think there’s roads.”

    Only The Constitution Party represents conservative rural America's Country Class against the progressive Ruling Party of democrats, libertarians and republicans.

    Well, living in CO I can assure Gov. LoonBerg that we DO indeed have roads here: I can even look out my window and describe them, which I will do now: I see that some are asphalt, some concrete and some seem to be a mix of the two (I guess). I hope my eye-witness testimony (and yes, I will do so under oath upon his request) will convince him he's in error. ;-)

    But Colorado is either a POOR state (even though it taxes people every which way but loose, especially with CO's annual "Specific Ownership Tax" on our cars) OR, it just doesn't use it's $$ wisely since our roads need improving (poorly-done patches, uneven surfaces and potholes everywhere).

    It's "good for business" if you will -- meaning it's good for the auto shops that do wheel-alignments -- but our citizens aren't happy about our roads whatsoever.

    Still, we DO have paved roads here in Colorado...just not the ones up in the mountains used mainly by off-roaders. ;-)

    I thought they were just paths worn by our wagons by always taking a most direct path? We really do have roads?

    I know you do, but don't think that Bloomninny does?
    RIGHTS don't exist without RESPONSIBILITY!
    If one is not willing to stand for his rights, he doesn't have any Rights.
    I will strive to stand for the rights of ANY person, even those folks with whom I disagree!
    As said by SVG--- "I am not anti-COP, I am PRO-Citizen" and I'll add, PRO-Constitution.
    If the above makes me a RADICAL or EXTREME--- So be it!

    Bloomberg doesn't have indoor plumbing, he is indoor plumbing. Clogged and backed up.

    Can you imagine the days long wait in the line to pour Draino down that clogged up toilet of a throat?

    Colorado Springs is "only" home to NORAD, SPACECOM, several key defense and IT industries, the U.S. Air Force Academy, and the U.S. Olympic Committee.

    Most certainly NOT backwoods or rural.

    Perhaps Bloomberg should visit sometime. I'll show him around. While armed, of course.

    If you get that opportunity, please show him an abandoned mine shaft while you're at it. Come back alone.

    He's fairly adept at stepping into his own piles of nonsense. I'll stand back and watch.

    We should find him a nice meadow where he can traipse about all by his lonesome. Except for the bull, of course. One meadow, one bull, lots of ********.
