Rumor has it . . .

Rumor has it that Mitt Romney is thinking about changing his name to Harold Stassen.

Color me disgusted.

But I canít imagine any other reaction when Republicans condemn extremist violence, then turn around and offer legislation that will gut benefits to the elderly and disabled. Their bills may not be quick and bloody, but the eventual outcome would be every bit as fatal as anything ISIS delivers to its own victims. The GOPís repeated targeting of the weakest and most vulnerable discloses a bully mentality that shames the very ideals they claim to revere. Patriots my ass.

Rerun redux

rec a printer?

I'm needing to get a small, totally non-fancy, economical black ink printer that will let me print receipts, copies of bills, coupons, etc., without routinely emptying my savings to buy more ink.

Suggestions?


Thanks!

Watch Out Cory Gardner, The ĎBaggers Are Restless'

A conservative blogger at Politichicks.com describes a Republican Party public event with Sen.-elect Cory Gardner sometime last month in Highlands Ranch that apparently didn't go so well:

With about 100 people at the meet and greet, it was a standing room only event where Gardener spoke for about two minutes and then went to mingle with the crowd. Sebern stated that she and her son stood back so that senior citizens in attendance could meet the senator-elect first.

Sebern described Gardnerís departure as abrupt, leaving the impression that he felt uncomfortable surrounded by people familiar to the campaign who might have had questions on his support for the spending bill which funded President Obamaís mandate for amnesty. Sebern reported that there was no announcement for last minutes pictures or autographs, though there were several people waiting in line to see him...

This behavior is nothing new to those of us in the 4th CD. Gardner has rightly earned a certain notoriety for blowing off constituents. There's a news article with a photo of him turning away from a constituent (in this case, me); I'd shown up to ask about the "re-define rape" bill he was boasting of cosponsoring, he said to make an appointment to discuss it. In spite of repeated attempts on my part, that conversation never happened with either him or anyone on his staff. At most of his pathetically rare public events he avoided anyone with cameras, not wanting to be recorded saying the stuff he says; abrupt, backdoor departures are common with him.

This is what has passed for "representation" for the district since he first went to D.C. Now he gets an entire state to dis and ignore. Don't believe me? Show up in his proximity with a camera and a question. Unless you're one of his invited guests you'll get rehearsed talking points not necessarily germane to the topic, or you will be pointedly ignored if not asked to leave.

Welcome to the 4th's nightmare, Colorado. The next six years are going to suck.

Here's a story about some very good people.

This is about the recovery efforts following last year's floods here in Colorado. The woman who introduces and closes the video is former city councilor and past chairperson of our county Dems. We have TERRIFIC people here!
