Douglas Bruce taken from courtroom in handcuffs after being given 2-year prison sentence

The Author of Colorado's Taxpayer's Bill of Rights is headed to prison for two years after he was sentenced Friday for violating the terms of his probation in a tax evasion case.

Douglas Bruce, a former state representative and El Paso County Commissioner, was taken away from a Denver courtroom in handcuffs after a Denver District Judge said he left her "no choice" in facing a prison sentence.

"The probability of your success on probation is zero," said Judge Sheila A. Rappaport, adding that she did not approve of his conduct during the hearing, which spanned three court dates over several months.

Is it wrong to hope someone throws away the key?

(Update) Fight Over Drilling Could Spill To November's Ballots



Greeley Fight Over Drilling Could Spill To November's Ballots

You might not guess it, but there’s 65 percent fewer drilling rigs across Colorado compared to one year ago. That hasn't made new oil and gas developments any less contentious for the people who live near them.

Take Greeley for example, where the city council Tuesday night approved an oil and gas project that involves fracking inside city limits. More than 300 people turned out for the meeting, which lasted six hours.

But the most notable thing from Tuesday’s meeting wasn’t the outcome. It was the fact that hundreds of people -- the largest turnout in recent memory -- came to debate a fracking project in Greeley, a city that’s been friendly to the oil and gas industry.

Who do you want me to support?

Do you want me to support Bernie Sanders? Fine. Tell me about his qualifications. You will only push me away if you try to make him look good by vilifying Hillary Clinton.

WE GAIN NOTHING BY USING EACH OTHER FOR TARGET PRACTICE.

Sorry about the caps, but come on, people! Let’s not forget that we need each other, okay?

The Brutal Assault on Hillary’s Integrity Is The Gender Barrier Manifested

..."227 years. That’s how long the shutout of women has lasted at the pinnacle of American politics. Along comes Hillary Clinton, one of the most admired and accomplished women in the world, to run for president, and what happens? She is smeared, lied about, assailed, impugned, her character is savaged, her honesty maligned, her very humanity questioned.

She is vilified as a witch, a bitch, shrill, loud, robotic, cold, monstrous, evil, a murderer.

Hordes of online trolls swarm her supporters and surrogates, spewing filthy, misogynistic insults.

She is attacked by Republicans, by the media, by the commentariat, and by her Democratic rival Bernie Sanders, who does this (according to Mother Jones):

'Hey, I’m not saying she’s a crook. I’m just saying she drives a pretty nice car, amirite?' I’d say that Sanders is very much questioning the integrity of Clinton herself, and doing it in a pretty familiar way.

And all these attacks have one thing in common: ZERO EVIDENCE."
