Wednesday Open Thread

  • by: Colorado Pols

“To the living we owe respect, but to the dead we owe only the truth.”



37 thoughts on “Wednesday Open Thread

  1. I don't do that Twitter thingy, but I just saw a fb post with a tweet from Pew-Pew about prostitutes and the tobacco industry…

    anyone have a clue?

      1. She’s complaining because he stuttered on the word prosecute which made it sound like prostitute. 

        It’s child like bulling behavior. If she was called out on it and admonished she would talk about how condescending liberals were or if it was a Republican with a backbone they would be a RINO. 

        She’s a bucktooth hayseed what did you want from her?

        1. I'm surprised Republicans haven't put you in prison for your mental health TDS condition. 

          She's such a gun lover I'd love to see how she would deal with a well read interviewer who asked her about the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act.

          My belief is teeth and tits would become less attractive to the gun lovers if they saw she has no idea what she's talking about on the topic they know. 

        2. In the event #BangBang has forgotten the actual words of her Lord and Savior: 

          The recording starts partway through Trump telling a story about hitting on an unidentified woman — unsuccessfully. “I did try and fuck her,” Trump said. “She was married. I moved on her very heavily. In fact, I took her out furniture shopping. … I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there and she was married.”

          Then, Trump said, he saw her again: “Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything.”

          Moments later, Trump notices Arianne Zucker, the soap opera actress who would later escort him and Bush to the set. Bush calls her “hot as shit.” Trump jokes that he should “use some Tic Tacs” in case he starts kissing her.

          “I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait,” Trump said. “When you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab ’em by the pussy. You can do anything.”

          1. Long since moved on. This isn't conflicting for conservatives or evangelicals. Heterosexual marriage isnt about love. It's about procreation. You are breeding stock. After that your non reproductive relationship is meant to take care of the future breeding stock. Trump had multiple children with multiple women thus proving their theory.

    1. It's more that they want to fleece the flock. Throwing out red meat and mouthing off raises money from the faithful. 

      Take a look at future former Republican Ken Buck. One of the reasons he has a primary is he spent too much time being effective and not enough screaming crazy into the wind.

      Think I'm full of it? Listen to Randy Camporns show from last Saturday with guest host interchangeable Republican loser. Caller voiced his hatred of Ken Buck: caller wasn't at the assembly. 

      1. Ken is dancing on the head of a straight pen.  On one hand he stands up to the insurrectionists and supports Liz Cheney (I applaud) …. on the other hand he allows himself to be introduced at Assembly by Rep Andy Biggs, one of the planners of the Jan 6 insurrection: 

  2. I’ve had a similar experience with a Talibangelist Uber driver in Nashville a few years back who was convinced I needed “more Jesus” in my life. I assured him that just like Willie, “me and Jesus were just fine”.  

    Woman Found With Marijuana During Traffic Stop And Given Option By Deputy To Avoid Charge Told Ex-Mother In Law "I Guess I’m Fixing To Get Baptized”

    Wilkey and Riley next discussed religion. They spoke for another thirty minutes, and McRae left sometime during this conversation. Riley testified that Wilkey asked her whether she had been baptized. She responded with concern that she may not be ready. But, according to Riley’s testimony, Wilkey told her “God [was] talking to him” and assured her that, if she got baptized, he would only write her a citation and she would be free to go about her business. 

    According to Riley, Wilkey also indicated that he would speak at court on her behalf if she agreed. Riley decided to go along with this plan because she“[did not] want to go to jail.” She also “thought [Wilkey] was a God-fearing, church-like man who saw something . . . in [her], that God talked to him,” and testified that “it felt good to believe that for a minute.”

    1. Andrew Heaton has qualified for 5th CD primary, joining Dave Williams, Rebecca Keltie and Doug Lamborn.  Williams went full ape shit at the news, indicating he understands that Lamborn's foes inability to unite will probably lead to yet another victory for him.

      Williams may be even worse than Boebert so this probably qualifies as good news.

  3. We here at the 51 former intelligence officials would never take the opportunity to pile on other thinker groups. But hey, you 17 Nobel laureate economist really blew this Biden economic plan.

    Inflation at 8.5% and the CPI index at 11.2, We can only say WTF! You are giving group thinkers a bad name!


    1. The Biden Boom has kicked the economy into over-drive. The Russian attack on Ukraine has made oil prices skyrocket. Trump put tariffs on steel imports from Canada. Solutions?

      For starters, let's cut all tarrifs from friendly countries.

      Let's release oil from the strategic reserve, the US can cash in on the high oil prices.

      We could raise interest rates to create a recession.

      What is your solution?

      1. What is your solution?

        According to that there dipshit, we were supposed to be in a shooting war with China over Taiwan months ago. With analytical acumen like that, we can reasonably suppose that his "solution" would involve putting some old, incontinent, morbidly obese Adderall junkie/serial rapist in the White House.

    2. Background from places NOT impacted by Biden:

      • Canada's inflation rate now at 30-year high of 5.7%.
      • Mexico annual inflation rate was 7.45% in March, above expectations
      • Brazil's annual inflation rate stands at 10.54 percent,
      • Consumer prices in Hungary rose an annual 8.5% in March.
      • U.K. inflation surged to a 30-year-high of 7% last month,
      • India's retail inflation likely sped up to a 16-month high of 6.35% in March,
      • China's producer price index (PPI), which measures factory inflation, increased 8.3 percent year on year,
      • Annual inflation in Russia accelerated to 14.53% as of March 18

      Astonishing just how much power Biden’s economic plan has.

  4. Today’s update from CO Secretary of State office:  the following have “sufficient” signatures and will appear on a primary ballot.

    Candidate…………Party…Office – District

    Neal Walia………DEM..US House – District 1

    Andrew Heaton..REP  US House – District 5

    Don Coram  …….REP..US House – District 3

    JulieMarie A. Shepherd Macklin..REP..State Senate – District 27

    Rick Taggart…….REP…State House – District 55

    N Elizabeth “Lisa” Norris-Frizell…REP….State House – District 45

    Anthony Hartsook…REP…State House – District 44



    Only 2 left on the list without a decision: 

    Brad Dempsey..REP….US House – District 7

    Carl Andersen..REP….US House – District 7


    Looking forward to hearing people’s take on Neal Walia —


    It looks like an activist judge in Denver has ordered a do-over for the HD 21 assembly where the GOP in El Paso County accidentally (?) nominated only a convicted felon and failed to nominate the incumbent state representative for the primary ballot.

    Mary Bradfield, the incumbent, was only cut off from making the 30% by one delegate vote. And it turns out that one of the delegates was ineligible to vote yet voted for the felon, Karl Dent.
