postheadericon Outside money pours in to push passage of Colorado’s Amendment 66 billion dollar tax hike

With one fell swoop, two billionaires from outside the state of jumped in and pledged $1 million each to push for the passage of Amendment 66.  New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a recent meddler in the Centennial State’s affairs, joined Bill and Melinda Gates and Obama’s political machine in helping push the tax hike.

postheadericon Slap down: Morse and Giron sent packing as recalls deliver repudiation of leftist policies

Perhaps there is some glimmer of hope for Colorado yet.  In recent years the Centennial State seemed to have taken a solid left turn from its right-of-center roots but the recalls of State Senate President John Morse and State Senator Angela Giron might signal that our fiercely independent streak isn’t dead yet.

postheadericon Giving credit: Adams County Sheriff Doug Darr joins in suit to protect Coloradans Second Amendment rights

Lord knows I have not always been kind to Adams County Sheriff Doug Darr on these pages – and for good reason.  However Darr’s choice to join with 54 other Colorado sheriffs in opposing the draconian gun grabbing measures passed by the state legislature is commendable.

Few people know exactly what a ‘public trustee’ is in county government but many will soon be learning about it as it turns out some of these folks have been fleecing taxpayers for a lot of money.  Among them is Adams County Public Trustee Carol Snyder who despite having an office job managed to get […]

postheadericon Colorado Governor Hickenlooper’s call for special session pushes limits of authority

Under Colorado’s state constitution, the governor has the authority to call the legislature into a special session “on extraordinary occasions.”  In exercising this power to force the legislature to consider seven non-pressing measures, Governor John Hickenlooper has stretched the limits in our state’s governing document.

President Barack Obama and Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper took center stage yesterday with each seeking to make a political hay of gay marriage / civil unions.  In doing so both showcased political pandering at its worst with Obama trying to save his reelection campaign and Hickenlooper choosing to ignore his own party’s failings on the […]
