Congratulations Wingnuts!!! Take out your OWN trash.

I wonder if these THOUSANDS of Christians are praying for trash collection?  I don't think Jesus does that, but Colorado Springs -- home of freakishly popular and dangerous fringe operations like Focus on the Family and the Teabagger Revolution, is beginning to see what it means to have no taxes to bolster public services.  From the Denver Post:
"More than a third of the streetlights in Colorado Springs will go dark Monday.
The police helicopters are for sale on the Internet. The city is dumping firefighting jobs, a vice team, burglary investigators, beat cops — dozens of police and fire positions will go unfilled.

The parks department removed trash cans last week, replacing them with signs urging users to pack out their own litter.
Neighbors are encouraged to bring their own lawn mowers to local green spaces, because parks workers will mow them only once every two weeks. If that. Water cutbacks mean most parks will be dead, brown turf by July; the flower and fertilizer budget is zero.
City recreation centers, indoor and outdoor pools, and a handful of museums will close for good March 31 unless they find private funding to stay open. Buses no longer run on evenings and weekends. The city won't pay for any street paving, relying instead on a regional authority that can meet only about 10 percent of the need."

In other news, Ted Haggard -- one-time favorite son of one Colorado Springs MegaCHURCH -- has stopped smoking meth and screwing male prostitutes long enough to start a new "Church".  Maybe they can send volunteers over to mow the lawns of the boulevards when the tumbleweeds begin to roam.  Doubtful.  Pray it out.
