  • Poisoning Capital Hill: Porky Pig Pelosi, Nazi Schiff, and Corrupt Nadlet - impeding response to COVID-19

    History should show how three idiots/corrupt folks "poisoned" Capital Hill so that President Trump had to focus on the 'stupid' actions in the House rather than the pending COVID-19 pandemic. There is also a fourth culprit in this situation - the STUPID media. But since COVID-19 is hitting NYC particularly hard, the media is taking lumps in NYC. Let us face facts. "Porky Pig" Pelosi has been more interested in 'pork' and 'power' than the good of the American people. Adam Schiff should not be on the Intelligence committee (in my opinion), let alone chairman of it. President Trump has...
  • Colorado Doctor Sounds Alarm on Marijuana Legalization High hopes dashed

    Colorado's experiment with marijuana legalization has been an epic disaster, according to one doctor seeing its effects on the front lines. Dr. Karen Randall, an emergency room physician certified in "cannabis science and medicine," said the legalization of marijuana has damaged, rather than helped, her home state. Randall, who spoke alongside former White House drug czar John Walters at the right-leaning Hudson Institute on Friday, said the public is being misled about the effects of recreational marijuana. "I think the public needs to know that we are not okay," Randall said. "The grand experiment is not going so well. I...

    The Boulder City Council unanimously passed a sweeping gun control ordinance Tuesday night banning "assault weapons" and bump stocks, even as a pro-Second Amendment group threatened to retaliate by suing individual councilmembers. In a surprising turn, one Colorado councilwoman admitted that she disagreed with the ordinance "in many ways," saying it would invite a flood of litigation -- despite voting for it.
  • Does anybody remember John Denver?

    Most likely people under age 40 have no idea who John Denver was. He had a string of pop hits. Then he died in a airplane crash in some sort of experimental plane? He might have been a goofy granola-eating liberal but he did write some pretty good songs in the "folk-rock" style back in the 1970s. His first big success was writing a song called "Leaving On A Jet Plane" which was a big hit for Peter, Paul & Mary, another group of granola eating liberals. His real life name was Henry John Deutschendorf Jr. Yikes, that's a mouthful....

    Thousands of Coloradans have signed a petition to honor the late "Rocky Mountain High" singer John Denver by naming a peak after him in the central Rockies close to where he penned the iconic 1970s song. But the plan has hit a snag -- with the US Board on Geographic Names saying federal policy is to avoid adding names to peaks in federal wilderness areas.

    A gunman in Thailand shot-dead eight neighbours, including his brother-in-law, after tiring of their karaoke versions of popular songs, including John Denver’s Country Roads. Weenus Chumkamnerd, 52, put his gun to the head of a respected female doctor and seven of her guests as they partied at her home in Songkhla Province, South Thailand. "When I began shooting nobody pleaded for his life because they were all drunk," he said after his arrest. He said he was so furious with their awful singing that he did not notice he had murdered his own brother-in-law. ... Country Roads is a hugely...

"Rocky Mountain High' has been the unofficial state song for 30 years. This was long overdue," said the resolution's primary sponsor, Bob Hagedorn of Aurora.

    A dramatic drug bust at two Aspen restaurants busy with the après ski crowd has created a rift between the two major law enforcement agencies at one of Colorado's premier ski resort towns. Fifty-three officers from a number of law enforcement agencies, some with guns drawn, stormed into two Aspen restaurants during the busy after-ski time last Friday. The raids happened shortly after 4 p.m. and netted about 2 ounces of cocaine, $3,000 in cash, nine arrests for drug involvement and 11 for immigration law violations. Pitkin County Sheriff Bob Braudis, an opponent of the "war on drugs" who believes...

    John Denver’s lyrics nearly moved Dan Rather to tears. Shortly after ex-POW Jessica Lynch addressed the media inside a tent in Wirt County, West Virginia, a homecoming covered live by all the networks on Tuesday afternoon, Rather displayed both his middle American, homespun patriotic values of paying tribute to those felled in war as well as the goofiness and excessive emotionalism which fuels ridicule of him. At about 2:50pm EDT, Rather reminded his viewers that, in the incident in which Lynch landed in enemy hands, “eleven U.S. soldiers were killed,” and so he asked that viewers “pause for a moment...
