    10-cent plastic bag fee goes statewide soon by: Gabrielle Franklin Posted: Dec 16, 2022 DENVER (KDVR) — The new year comes with a new fee in Colorado. Those who live in Denver, Boulder or Fort Collins are no strangers to this fee, but other municipalities should prepare to bring their own bags starting on Jan. 1. “Here in Colorado, we have a big plastic pollution problem,” said Danny Katz, executive director of CoPIRG, a public interest research group. “We estimate that before the pandemic, Colorado was going through about 4.6 million single-use plastic bags a day. When you think about...
  • Colorado Governor Turns Back Clock, Signing Bill Nullifying Preemption

    Colorado gun rights took a leap backward over the weekend as Democrat Gov. Jared Polis signed legislation essentially gutting the Centennial State’s firearms preemption law, thus allowing local municipalities to establish their own gun control laws.It returns Colorado to a checkerboard situation where neighboring jurisdictions might have different, perhaps conflicting gun laws that confuse, and according to some critics, possibly even ensnare gun owners into situations where they might be violating a local law by crossing an invisible jurisdictional line.At the same time, Gov. Polis signed another measure establishing an “Office of Gun Violence Prevention,” whose job will be to...

    Following faux conservative outrage at the movement of the All-Star game from Atlanta to Denver, Major League Baseball offered the following reasoning for the move: An anonymous spokesman with access to inside information said today, “We understand the disappointment of those in Atlanta and Cobb County at the movement of this game. We understand and sympathize with the hundreds of people of color who will lose tens of thousands of dollars due to our decision to move the game to a majority white city with more restrictive voting laws than Georgia,” “That said, we felt moving the game to a...

    Where I live right now there are MASSIVE FIREWORKS going off. And they have been for past 30 minutes non stop. It is the Sound of FREEDOM! In my State and area, they are totally legal. Every year when I hear a FREE PEOPLE blowing off such a massive amount of PERSONAL FIREWORKS, I thank God that I live in one of the FREE STATES of AMERICA. The first many years of my life it was not so, having grown up in NANNY/COMMIE STATE where fireworks were illegal. Big government had to protect you from hurting yourself, controlling as many...

    A family in Colorado is outraged after two men, who were accused of gang-raping a 13-year-old girl with their brothers and cousins, were only sentenced to probation. Tommy Williams, 20, and Clarence Williams, 19, were each sentenced on Tuesday to a minimum of 10 years of sex offender intensive supervised probation, with a maximum of life on probation, KKTV reported. The men are two of six suspects accused of sexually assaulting the young teen in December 2016 inside of the Stonebrook Terrace apartment complex in Colorado Springs. The victim's grandfather was shocked at the sentencing, telling the news station:...

    Activity at Magpul, the largest manufacturer of ammunition magazines in Colorado, appeared about as normal Wednesday morning, March 20, as it probably does most mornings. But that industrious calm likely will change soon, after Gov. John Hickenlooper signed into law this morning a series of gun control measures - most notably HB 1224, which limits ammunition magazines to 15 rounds or less. -snip Magpul declined repeated requests for comment this morning, but posted on its Facebook page that its move out of state will start "almost immediately" after HB 1224 becomes law and that "we will prioritize moving magazine manufacturing...

    Budget documents from 20 Colorado school districts show taxpayers spent more than $5.8 million over the past five years for the activities of teachers unions ... Some districts pay all or part of the salaries of full-time union leaders, salaries of teachers on leave to attend union-sponsored training and meetings and hiring substitutes for teachers who were attending union events. Critics of the practice say taxpayer money is being used to benefit unions, not children.

    On December 12th, Occupy Denver seemingly plans to "shut down" the WalMart distribution center in Loveland on December 12th. Please, if you are able, join us this Saturday for the Free Markets - Free People Rally in the State Cap in downtown Denver. Word is 500 or so occupiers from Springs and Pueblo plan to come counter protest us. We do not know this to be accurate, but that is the word we are getting. So we can use all the bodies we can get. It will be cold out, so do dress warmly. Despite the given time frame, we...

    The Telegraph ^ | 11-28-11
    The US military has built a stone circle in its Air Force academy to give pagans, druids and witches somewhere to practice their religion. The Colorado base has spent around £50,000 building the Stonehenge-like structure to allow witches to cast spells, and pagans to form "circles of power" by night. It is situated on top of a wooded hill and includes a fire pit. The academy says it is for cadets who practice 'Earth based' religions including druids, witches and North American faiths. Despite the expenses it is believed only three out of the 4,300 cadets have openly admitted that...

    SILVERTON, CO – The man in the coffee shop had the look of a no-nonsense Westerner. A retired architect, he told me that he had lived in the mountains for the past few years and that like most Americans, he was appalled at what was going on in Washington. Cheerfully admitting to being a political liberal, he nonetheless agreed that America’s financial woes were due to government profligacy, not a lack of tax revenue. He acknowledged that the nation’s credit rating was downgraded because Congress had not enacted serious spending cuts. There’s plenty of common ground here, I thought. That...
