I began my master’s at CU Boulder this year. Like most students, I was handed a small booklet of coupons in the first few weeks of the fall semester. The book featured the expected coupons for slices of pizza, tanning salons, and even a free hot wax for your skis. I then came to a coupon for a free pregnancy test and a free ultrasound.
We don’t have former State Rep. Gordon Klingenschmitt to kick around anymore, but rest assured he is still out there spreading ignorance. It’s too bad there are so many Republicans in the state legislature who are equally ignorant, such as State Sen. Tim Neville (R-Littleton) and State Sen. Laura Woods (R-Arvada).
Short of the assumption that they really want to live in a fabricated bubble of belief-affirming thought, I’ll never understand why prominent members of Colorado’s Republican party post stuff like this on social media without fact checking.
State Sen. Tim Neville has no use for free markets when it comes to his pet causes. Yes, we all feel empathetic for people who lose their jobs, but the premise that jobs in the coal industry have been lost at the hand of Obama is laughable.
This time it’s her duplicitous wishes for a happy Labor day.
One interesting feature of the Fever Swamps™ is the absolute arrogance with which fallaciously premised beliefs are held. In the post below, Colorado State House candidate Raymond Garcia demonstrates the form with practiced self-assuredness.
The District Attorney (DA) is arguably the most influential position in the criminal justice system. In Colorado, the District Attorney is an elected office and holds decision-making authority and responsibility. Although this is an elected office, often too little information is known about DA candidates or decisions s/he makes once elected.
If there ever was a sate senator out of step with her district it is Laura Woods. Even when she’s running she can’t help but let her extremist views show, yet I haven’t seen much reporting in Colorado media on her incendiary statements or radical policy preferences. That is rather surprising considering her race is pivotal to determining who controls the Colorado State Senate in the coming year. This is a person who rationalized the Planned Parenthood attack in Colorado Springs; who supports the radical personhood amendment that would outlaw birth control; who is doing her best to bring back preventable, deadly, diseases by weakening Colorado’s (already weakest in the nation) vaccination law and spreading the long-debunked falsehood that vaccination is connected to autism.
