Ah, poor Texans. And we thought Hurricane Harvey was a disaster. Oh, dear. As Coloradans, we know the fear of winter heat loss, frozen pipes, then water damage when the pipes thaw.
This doesn’t feel like the second week of the session, or even the third if you count those three days in January. More bills have been introduced in a shorter time than would happen in a typical year.
No, the required number of of Senators, 67, did not find you guilty, Mr. Trump, of inciting the riot at our Capitol building and attempting to subvert the peaceful transition of power to the new administration. A total of seven Republican Senators joined the 50 Democratic Senators who all vo…
On Jan. 28, The New York Times posted an article by Nicholas Kristof called “A Letter to My Conservative Friends.” It opens with, “This is an open letter to some of my old friends and neighbors who believe that Donald Trump won re-election, who think that face masks are for wimps and who fea…
In October, candidate Biden said, “There are certain things you can’t do by executive action unless you’re a dictator.” Biden and aides, including top White House economists, have said that they believe executive actions are pale substitutes for legislative actions.
As America seats Biden, a collective concern is felt amongst conservatives. Once their happy dance is over, I expect that Democrat voters will wake up to some sobering results. Basically, the election was a 50-50 race across America. There is no mandate for the agenda being pushed by the Lef…
I try not to get into a lot of back and forth discussions in these articles because I recognize we all have the right to our own opinions on issues and we each come from different backgrounds. However, I do feel obligated to respond to what Louise Peterson (no relation) wrote in the Democrat…
Most of us have viewed at least short videos of Trump’s rousing speech followed by the destructive protest at the United States Capitol building last Wednesday afternoon. As Congress was accepting the certified votes of each state’s electors, a group of Trump supporters marched the six block…
It always amazes me that many people think Trump supporters are not able to think for themselves. There are many topics of conversation that we can disagree on, but there are very sound minds and well educated people on both sides of these arguments.
In a recent Monmouth University survey, 77 percent of Trump backers said Joe Biden had won the presidential election because of fraud. Many of these same people think climate change is not real. Many of these same people believe they don’t need to listen to scientific experts on how to preve…
If you went to school in the 50s or 60s, the names Squanto and Samoset probably ring a bell with you. You most likely didn’t hear anything about this in the news last month, but November marked the 400th anniversary of the landing of the Mayflower in what is now Massachusetts. Hunters and fi…
Most of us can agree that we have elected a new U.S. President: Joe Biden and his VP Kamala Harris will be inaugurated on Jan. 20, 2021. Still, over 70 million Americans voted for Donald Trump, the second most votes won by a presidential candidate. That is a huge number of my fellow citize…
As I write this, it appears the election is over, but it remains to be seen what will become of all the legal challenges. I thought Mr. Biden gave a good speech and appreciated his call for unity, but let’s take a look at how this compares to a couple of other recent elections.
I spoke last week about the wave of violence plaguing our nation and suggested it is the front wave of a revolution. Even those on the left who aren’t participating in the riots are trying to delete heroes from our history and radically alter the values of our society. Some are calling it th…
I sent the following email to everyone in my contacts list. If you feel as I do that our American way of life is threatened by the current presidential administration, then we all must communicate any way we can, we must protect our voting process, and we must elect Joe Biden to take over du…
The year I was born, 1951, only 2.5 billion people inhabited our planet. Today we are approaching 7.8 billion people. This is truly the greatest challenge we face to our survival.
Well, these continue to be interesting times with no end in sight. As I write this, a pro-police rally down at the capitol is being interrupted by a group demanding the police departments be defunded. For almost three months now, people have been demanding their voices be heard and their rig…
The second session of the 72nd General Assembly is in the books. A little after 5 p.m. on June 15, it was “Turn out the lights – the party’s over” on the floor of the Colorado House of Representatives. After a testy and historic 84 day session, the House adjourned sine die (from the Latin “w…
