Your editorial applauding this action ends with the following statement: “Villafuerte may not have done anything wrong, but from what she’s said publicly, she lacks the ability to prove it.” When did your newspaper change to “Guilty until proven innocent?”

The backers of this boondoggle said it would cost $4.7 billion. Too many people believed this fraud and said "OK" and approved a tax increase.
Woops. Now RTD says the actual cost will be $7.0 billion. They want voters to approve that, too.
Many will vote for it, thus sanctioning and approving their own robbery.
It starts to get hard to feel sorry for those that willingly submit to fraud. Of course, the bad part is that those voting for RTD want those that have not fallen for the scam to contribute, too.
And, due to the power of democracy, they can make it happen.

One could say, Mr. President, that a ghost is haunting Copenhagen, to paraphrase Karl Marx, the great Karl Marx, a ghost is haunting the streets of Copenhagen, and I think that ghost walks silently through this room, walking around among us, through the halls, out below, it rises, this ghost is a terrible ghost almost nobody wants to mention it: Capitalism is the ghost, almost nobody wants to mention it. It’s capitalism, the people roar, out there, hear them.
Socialism, the other ghost Karl Marx spoke about, which walks here too, rather it is like a counter-ghost. Socialism, this is the direction, this is the path to save the planet, I don’t have the least doubt.
Our revolution seeks to help all people…socialism, the other ghost that is probably wandering around this room, that’s the way to save the planet, capitalism is the road to hell....let’s fight against capitalism and make it obey us.

The immorality of the modern day green cultists is staggering. They care not that they will make electricity, heat and basic modern comforts unavailable to the poorest of the world.
They ignore the staggering economic costs of forcing the aged and infirm to quit using cheap fossil fuels to warm their houses in the winter. The aged and infirm are mere casualties in the Green Crusaders’ war against progress - that same progress that allowed them to fly in jumbo jets to
The cultists have no interest in achieving their goals if the means do not give them control over others. If they actually believed that immediate action is necessary to save the planet from self-immolation, they would be building nuclear power plants.
That solution to their fictitious problem, however, does not allow them to decide who gets how much money. It does not require tribute. It does not require you to succumb.
And you must give tribute. And you must succumb. Or the oceans will boil! (Or some such fantastic tripe).
And, just like false evangelical television stars, they inflame the fear and ignorance of others for their own financial gain.
It is a disgrace.

Americans for Prosperity Holds Code Red Rally at U.S. Senate Offices
Coloradans to Visit U.S. Senators at Five Colorado Locations
COLORADO SPRINGS – Thousands of Americans converged on the House of Representatives in November with our Congressional House Calls – both in Washington, D.C. and their home districts – to let them know we don’t want this brand of health reform. We want reform that puts patients first. That bill passed by an extremely narrow margin, showing Congress is divided on this issue.
Now the fight has turned to the Senate, and it’s down to the wire. Coloradans face hundreds of billions in escalating costs, new taxes, and government-forced health insurance backed by penalties of fines and jail time.
The No. 1 reason Congress has taken this long on this issue is the American people – Americans rallying for a fresh start on health reform.
As the Senate nears the end of the health care debate Coloradans have one last opportunity to stand up for health care freedom in a way Senators Udall and Bennet won’t forget.
AFP is hosting a Code Red Rally at the U.S. Capitol this coming Tuesday, December 15th to tell the Senate to keep their hands off our health care. In Colorado, we will be visiting the offices of our Senators at four locations throughout the state.

A golden parachute with four wheels? What do you get as a gift for an ousted union leader accused of nepotism? A Ford F-350 pickup paid for with union dues, of course. 9News reporter Kyle Clark shined the light on the continuing corruption at United Food and Commercial Workers Local 7, where ousted leader Ernie Duran Jr. is walking away with his union truck.And outgoing union secretary Stan Kania is driving away in his union-purchased Ford 500. Both gifts were approved by Local 7's executive committee, and the seventh vice president — not the first through sixth, mind you — told 9News that every other departing president got a vehicle. That's great, except they didn't, according to 9News, which interviewed past presidents. What hogwash.And don't even get us started on the board's impromptu telephone vote to endorse — and give the maximum amount of cash — to any staff member who runs for public office. Two weeks later, Duran's daughter, who also worked at Local 7, announced a statehouse run.
hands regulators broad new powers likely to impact everyone from the average mortgage applicant to multibillion-dollar financial houses that lord over the global economy.Among its most applauded — and controversial — components, the 1,279-page bill would create an entirely new regulatory agency, the Financial Services Oversight Council. Its charge would be to protect consumers and give regulators the power to pre-emptively dismantle companies if they conclude those firms threaten the economy.

the federal government agreed Tuesday to settle for $3.4 billion a lawsuit that claims it badly mismanaged millions of acres in Indian trust land over more than 100 years....The federal government would return those lands to tribal ownership, reversing a controversial policy of privatization that dates to 1887, was reversed in the 1930s and is seen by many in Indian country as contributing to a legacy of poverty and underdevelopment that continues to this day....the announcement finalizes a monumental legal struggle that had become a symbol of government neglect and mismanagement, one that a district judge last year called an "irreparable breach of fiduciary duty" by the Department of the Interior....federal officials appeared to have lost millions of critical records dating back decades that were supposed to record income from trust lands and what was done with the money.
