Seen on a church sign today

"Tweet unto others as you would have them tweet unto you"

And of course I didn't have my camera with me.

Interesting that Trump seems all concerned about Bannon's book.

He's usually only worried about what his base thinks, and it's not as if his base is known for reading books . . .

Protesters Greet Senator Gardner on New Year's Eve in Yuma

My note prefacing the article: GOP leadership is grooming Gardner for higher office. These protesters are some of those who were arrested for protesting at his Denver office earlier this year. Yes, they are in wheelchairs.

On New Year’s Eve 2017, Senator Cory Gardner of Colorado had some unexpected visitors outside his home in Yuma, Colorado. Twelve protesters and supporters from Atlantis ADAPT braved the bitter cold to hold a “house party” on the sidewalk outside Gardner’s home, asking for him to come out and talk with them about how the tax legislation he supported would affect their lives. (about 23:00 minutes in to the video)

They chanted: “Cory Gardner, come on out! We’ve got something to talk about!” and “New Year’s Resolution – Uphold the Constitution!”

However, Senator Gardner declined to party with the protesters, and never spoke with them, although, according to a police officer in the video, he was at home at the time.

Carrie Ann Lucas, a member of the Atlantis ADAPT board, and a candidate for the town board of Windsor, posted live video of the protest. I asked Ms. Lucas to comment on the events.

Q: What did you want to accomplish by visiting Cory Gardner’s home in Yuma on New Year’s Eve?
A: We wanted to have a dialogue with Sen Gardner to prevent Medicaid cuts that are so harmful to disabled Coloradans and to get a commitment to co-sponsor the Disability Integration Act like Sen Bennett, and Reps Degette, Polis, Tipton, Coffman, and Perlmutter. The Disability Integration Act will ensure that all disabled people and seniors have the right to receive support services in their own homes, rather than institutional settings such as nursing homes.
Sen. Gardner is not representing Coloradans, but is increasingly beholden to corporate interests. We will continue to try to dialogue with him until he either starts representing the people of Colorado, or he is voted out of office.
