  1. "Pure as the driven snow" (like that which now covers my beautiful Colorado property) does not describe Trump, my friends. Stay upwind!

    Could we just refer to him as St'ump (Stinky trump) or possibly Cadet bone-spurs?  Both would be apt.laugh

    Records show Trump aides plotted political win for Rick Scott

    When Gov. Rick Scott and U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke announced on Jan. 9 that Florida was “off the table” for offshore oil drilling, the governor cast the hastily arranged news conference at the Tallahassee airport as unplanned and the Trump administration’s decision as something Scott had influenced at the eleventh hour.

    In fact, Zinke’s top advance staffer, whose job it is to plan ahead for such events, was in Tallahassee the previous day. And top officials from the offices of both Scott and the secretary were in regular contact for several days leading up to the announcement, according to more than 1,200 documents reviewed by POLITICO Florida as part of a public records request.

    If you really want to turn Colorado Democratic, you'd better up your donation game.

    A judge has struck down the portion of Amendment 71 that requires signature-gathering from all senate districts.

    In a court order issued Tuesday morning, Judge William J. Martinez struck down the new petition requirements of Amendment 71 — also known as “Raise the Bar” — as unconstitutional, saying they violate the principle of “one person, one vote.”

    The order could have major implications for the 2018 ballot, with advocacy groups pushing constitutional amendments on education funding, redistricting and taxes. The Colorado Secretary of State’s Office plans to appeal the ruling and to request that the order be stayed while the case is heard — a move that could keep the tougher requirements in play for the November election.
