In his weekly Colorado Politics column Monday, the eloquent Miller Hudson wrote on striking an economic balance in society.  “Should we spread the wealth?” he asks.  “Or should we allow wealth to trickle down at the whim of the 1% of Americans who are capturing 99% of new earnings in the American economy?  There should […]

When I first listened to Rush Limbaugh as a 12-year-old child in my grandpa’s car, I had no idea that I would launch a talk show-hosting career myself, or what I would learn from Limbaugh’s show and from whom I would learn it. Enter Walter E. Williams, noted free market economist, fervent individual liberty advocate, […]

I’m going to reveal something I’ve never shared publicly before. This New Year’s Eve, it will be seven years since I didn’t jump off a parking garage.  For more than seven years of my life, I was treated for clinical depression and anxiety.  I saw a therapist and a psychiatrist on the regular.  I took various antidepressants […]

Six days before Election Day, as many Colorado voters were filling out their ballots, Gov. Jared Polis offered a Halloween treat.  He declared the state will give nearly 435,000 Coloradans a one-time payment of $375 cash to Coloradans who both filed for unemployment during the pandemic and earn less than $52,000 a year.  Payments are expected to […]

On Friday, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 87, passed away after 27 years on the bench.  Her legacy as a trailblazer, a go-getter, an intellectual giant and, in the words of her former D.C. Circuit colleague, Judge Ken Starr, “equality’s gracious champion,” is worthy of recognition and honor.  While one can vehemently disagree with her […]

Colorado’s partisan secretary of state, Jena Griswold, has gone postal on the Postal Service with her second lawsuit in a month.  This time, she’s challenging postcards USPS distributed to mailboxes nationwide that presented incomplete information for Colorado.  Her complaint asserts the mailers are an “attempt at voter suppression (that) violates the United States Constitution and federal statutes and must be […]

When I was a kid, one of my favorite games to play with friends was “War.”  Akin in some ways to cops and robbers, we would run around the neighborhood with toy guns and — gasp! — pretend to fire at each other.  We were far from the first kids to play with toy guns. None of […]

When he signed Senate Bill 19-181 into law, Gov. Jared Polis claimed the “oil and gas wars” were “over.”  Yet they really began that very day. Yesterday, Colorado Politics published a cover story on “new ground rules” being developed by the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC) as it continues revamping Colorado’s regulatory makeup following the corrosive […]

For months, Democrats have shouted that President Trump wants to “destroy the Post Office” and/or privatize it. Congressional Democrats first pushed for a USPS bailout in April; as Republicans and the Trump administration resisted, the Democrats started crying more about this supposed anti-USPS agenda. Now, as we get closer to November, they’ve ramped up these attacks.  Last […]

Today, Gov. Polis, U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet, Secretary of State Jenna Griswold, Attorney General Phil Weiser and Denver Clerk and Recorder Paul López will hold a press conference about Colorado’s vote-by-mail (VBM) experience to “push back on President Trump’s false attacks against” mail-ballots.  It’s obviously a coincidence the event is being held on day one of the […]
