A Leninist in the White House: Heavy-handed Steve

A Leninist in the White House: Heavy-handed Steve Bannon

By Aidan Coffey New Voices columnist President Trump’s temporary ban against Muslim refugees and immigration produced one of the largest waves of protests this country has seen since the Vietnam War.  While the media focus  on the botched rollout of Trump’s executive orders and the left loudly proclaims its solidarity with Muslim-Americans, few pundits have bothered to look beyond the façade.  Everything Donald Trump has done so far — the wall, the Muslim ban — ...

Tweeting while the world comes to its senses

Tweeting while the world comes to its senses

By John LaForge   When Donald Trump Tweeted something about nuclear weapons Dec. 23, I thought he must be deliberately trivializing the Bomb to make it appear small, the way he makes light of sexual assault, punching critics, deporting millions, torturing suspects, and assassinating women and children. About the Bomb, the world’s most famous Tweeter offered, “The US must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses ... Full Story

Sweeney for HD49

Sweeney for HD49

To the Editor, As an Independent voter, I decided to review my options for leadership in the Colorado House of Representatives for District 49. As the Internet seemed to be the best source, I found a debate between the two candidates that was compelling enough to support my voting decision. The Estes Park League of Women Voters sponsored a Candidate Forum on September 22 that conveyed the platforms of both candidates. What was most concerning in this opportunity to hear the ...

Amendment 69: Opportunity for Change

Amendment 69: Opportunity for Change

To the editor: I support ColoradoCare-Amendment 69 because it will provide access to affordable, quality healthcare for all Coloradans. This matters to the families of Coloradans who die each year because they don’t have health insurance; to those declaring bankruptcy because they can’t pay medical bills; to those who pay ever higher premiums for increasing deductibles and more limited benefits; to healthcare providers who deal with more paperwork and red tape to provide patients the ...

Buzz Sweeney for District 49

I am running for Colorado House of Representatives District 49 because you deserve a choice. Two years ago my opponent ran unopposed.  The differences between us is like night and day. I am absolutely sure women should receive equal pay for equal work and make their own health care decisions. Science, not intuition, tells me why the polar ice is melting and why our trout streams are warming. In 2004 Colorado adopted the forward thinking goal of 30% of our electrical power coming ...

Buzz Sweeney Challenging Perry Buck for Colorado

Buzz Sweeney Challenging Perry Buck for Colorado District 49 House Seat

By Judith Powers Buzz Sweeney is challenging Republican Perry Buck for the District 49 House Seat in the Colorado Legislature. “You deserve a choice,” he says, referring to the fact that his opponent was unopposed in the last election, which gave progressives no choice at all. “I want to be your Representative because you deserve a choice between someone who might or might not represent your values, and me, a social progressive who is an economic conservative,” said Sweeney at ...

The numbers don’t lie—but Trump does

The numbers don’t lie—but Trump does

By Tom H. Hastings According to a Fox News poll taken this week, voters believe Donald Trump would do better than Hillary Clinton on the economy. This is a wildly poor assumption. Look at the fair and reasonable indicators. We can surmise that Trump would continue his fact-free shoot-from-the-hip predatory capitalist approach, and that his policies might look more like George W. Bush’s than anyone else’s. We can also logically guess that Clinton’s policies would resemble those of ... Full Story

In defense of Hillary Clinton

In defense of Hillary Clinton

The most thorough, profound and moving defense of Hillary Clinton I have ever seen. By NewDealer Saturday Jun 11, 2016 · 8:05 PM MDT First of all — this is not my writing.  It's a Facebook post by someone I don’t even know, a man named Michael Arnovitz in Portland OR.  But as a Facebook post it passes the fair use test and I’m quite certain he would not object that I share it here (he doesn’t).   The original Facebook post is here: ...
