Sometimes you just gotta wonder.

In the middle of the President's press conference, comcast just ran "a required monthly test" of the emergency broadcast system.

This notice comes to you from non-seceding northern Colorado.

Colorado's secession movement on CBS

They finally aired it this morning. Our segment begins a little after three minutes in.

A bit disappointing that they spent so much time interviewing teaparty supporters of the idea; silver lining could be that doing so demonstrates the kind of thinking required for such a push. Nor did they show that supporters are overwhelmingly older whites angry about not getting their way in all things at all times.

Also left out of their coverage was the information that this move was instigated by the county commissioners, a legally dubious move on their part; their job description does not give them that authority. And the commishes have been less than honest when discussing the expense of this effort; they claim that they haven't spent any county money or time on this (thinly technically true), but they have assigned research tasks to county employees who are entirely paid by county taxpayers.

Yet another layer: The county council is tasked with overseeing the county commissioners. Unfortunately, one of the council members now heads up the 51st state movement and is in no position to provide the necessary impartial oversight.

It's a mess.

Compassion, GOP style

Took well over an hour.

Questions kept repeating, name kept coming back wrong, then it put two names together. Finally got the names right, and the address came back wrong. Our helper was getting frustrated right along with us, but after more fiddling inside the program, it finally got the job done.

ACA? No, just removing one signator from a checking account and adding one new one. Not a huge corporation or anything, small local gathering that never has over $300 in the account. Thanks Obama!
