    One of the regular features of Daily Kos featured polling on Biden's Build Back Better in 12 states, including Colorado.  The Colorado results were broken out and published: 

    Ethan Winter & Anika Dandekar, Data for Progress:

    Voters in Colorado Support the Build Back Better Agenda

    We tested support for the Build Back Better plan, the $3.5 trillion budget proposal Democrats in Congress are now considering. We find that likely voters in the state support this proposed investment plan by a margin of +47 points. Democrats and Independents support the plan by margins of +91 points and +53 points. Republicans are more divided: forty-one percent support the plan and 52 percent oppose it. …

    We then tested support for the individual provisions of the Build Back Better plan. We find majority support for all provisions.

    I gotta admit I didn’t see this headline coming: “The Carbon-Neutal Pig” (a project of the pig famers themselves. Agriculture is gradually embracing the coming market realities). 

    Imagine the tightened sphincter muscles at the next Republican caucus hootenanny?

    Cole Finegan has been nominated as Colorado's next U.S. Attorney. Thoughts from our lawyerly Polsters?

    I couldn’t resist e-mailing KREX, the CBS affiliate in Grand Junction, this AM to complain about a seriously one-sided story about the BLM (Bureau of Leasing Minerals, not the other one) Headquarters fiasco.

    The local COGA spokesperson said they wanted it here for all the positive benefits they provide, like wildlife management and the environmental stewardship they practice.

    We will see if the reporter or news director will respond.

    I am feeling hopeful, curious and skeptical, but hopeful. 

    Fox responders are going nuts because Lt Col Stuart Scheller
    is in pre-trial confinement, aka, jail.  All he did was ask questions…demanded transparency … snif , boo hoo 
    My response to all of them and all of it: 
    – He is a Marine (so far) and there is such a thing as the chain of command and the UCMJ – look them up if you need to. He was under directo order to shutthehellup, and he just had to speak up. Now he has been charged and is going to have a trial.  Snowden was a criminal – and Scheller is too.

    AZ judge rules that the AZ governor order to ban mandates is unconstitutional. 

    Bloomberg (publication) acknowledges debt ceiling arguing (pretend) is bipartisan stupidity.

    Corporan wasting time and money (again) is going to lose. DPD can (and should) require covid vaccine and other vaccines.  Officers who feel they should have the right to choose whether or not they are infectious should be out.
