    Polis is getting a bit of criticism [or at least curiosity] on numerous issues this week:

     * Continuing to allow "testing alternatives" to mandated vaccines

     * Avoiding mask mandates [of course] to address a growing COVID count (and that is BEFORE people start sharing for the holidays in the next 6 weeks)

     * Suggesting monoclonal antibodies that he's pushing being less helpful than COVID vaccines

      * Some specifics of the "triage" order allowing "state control over hospital admissions and transfers"

     * getting private foundations to fund staff in his office, providing "specialized knowledge" and, as a spokesperson said "We only accept donations from non-partisan nonprofits and we do not accept contributions from corporations or individuals,” Cahill said. “We have been abundantly transparent about the funds that we receive.” it is a step up from Hickenlooper getting money from corporations for interns …

     * his tax avoidance

     * his budget proposal (which seems to draw criticisms from left and right)

     * needing to console after another mass shooting (this time with less death)

    My week looks positively idyllic by comparison.

    FBI raids home of Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters in election data breach investigation

    "Essentially, they were soldiers in combat gear. They were not men in suits with badges," Peters said. "They looked very much like they were in a combat zone — soldiers with automatic weapons and combat gear."

      Good for the FBI. I’m glad they came equipped for combat with domestic terrorists- Peters’ peeps like to brag about how many guns they have , and how much they love their Second Amendment remedies.
