Thursday Open Thread

  • by: Colorado Pols

“Expectation is the mother of all frustration.”

  1. How about a pool as to whether Farting Rudy or Stinky Trump is indicted first?  I’m betting the feds nail Rudy, Southern District of New York, while the State goes after Trump for tax fraud. 

    1. It would be fitting for Rudy to get indicted in the judicial district where he was once US Attorney (and a hack one at that).  

    1. I'd love to watch "Toots" Boebert at the upcoming Western Conservative Summit if she takes questions and someone asks her about her position on the ongoing negotiations to revise the Colorado River Compact of 1922.

      If the question doesn't cover worshipping Trump or the libs stole the election, I'd think she wouldn't be able to handle it.

      1. CHB, I don't believe negotiations are trying to revise the compact itself, but are attempting instead to manage how shortfalls will be shared. Any talk of redoing the compact itself gives all water users upstream from Mead the shakes.


        1. I have been looking, unsuccessfully so far, for a listing or some declaration regarding senior water rights on the Colorado. It seems to me I heard that Palisade has very senior rights, but I know little on the subject.

          1. Try checking out the Colorado Water Conservation Board, or elsewhere on the DNR web site. I've not heard of any such list, but there ought to be one somewhere.

            I also have an old guide to Colorado water law that was published by the League of Women Voters. 

          2. I have been reading the Salt Lake Tribune and AZ Star coverage.

            Apparently, any shortfall is made up by Colorado and southern California farmers. Oh, and Trump will be reinstated in August when the election results are restored.

          3. As I understand it, Duke, Xcel's Shoshone power plant (non-consumptive) right is the most senior on the river. Next in line come the Clifton water district and Highline Canal, although I'm not sure of the order.

            I'd be the Colorado River District would know.

  2. Jennifer Rubin on the existential threat to democracy that today's GOP represents.

    Vice News, in surveying scholars alarmed by the descent of the GOP, finds:

    The overwhelming concern among scholars isn’t so much the continued personal influence of Trump but the impact of his continued false claims about election fraud and efforts to overturn the 2020 election. They worry what the 2024 election could look like as the Republican Party has further radicalized and the embrace of “big lie” has become a foundational belief of many on the right.

    Even the most enlightened, pro-democratic Republicans do not grasp the stakes. Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) confesses she voted for Trump because she could not fathom voting for President Biden. She now “regrets” her vote, but apparently not enough to cease supporting a party that remains in Trump’s thrall or to stop defending voter suppression tactics.


  3. Today in Cancel Culture:

    Army veteran speaking about African-American historical roots of Memorial day had his mic cut. The organizers didn’t want to hear about the freed slaves who gathered 10,000 strong to honor Civil war Union soldiers in 1865. They dug the remains out of a mass grave, re-interred them with honor, had a parade, and instituted Memorial Day.

    This photo, supposed to be of the “Decoration Day” celebrants in Charleston in  has been posted on various sites, but I haven’t found the original posting. It should be in the National Archives, but isn’t.


    1. Thanks to Lt. Col. Barnard Kemter (. . . and that self-inflicted dick shooting assist, worthy of our Moderatus, by Ms. Suchan-Rothgery) millions more who never knew, myself included, will now learn the buried story of how freed African-American slaves are responsible for the founding of Memorial Day.

    2. I love this story.  I spent some time two years ago at a cemetery near Richmond, VA finding the gravesite of my (4g) grandfather who died at the Battle of Cold Harbor.  At that cemetery there was a lovely lady who ran the visitors center and shared this history of our African-American brothers and sisters.
