IT'S ONLY 18 MORE DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS!  Just wanted you to know.

HISTORY OF ISLAM IS NOT VERY PRETTY Religion of peace?  Not historically anyway.  Read this for more information


ABOUT THE PRESIDENT SPEECH It was Seinfeldian in it's nothingness, but blissfully short.  That's the best I can say about the President's speech.  In it, he rehashed what we're doing now and told us to not worry about it because his Administration has things under control.  I am not comforted.  You can read it here.  The GOP candidates were not impressed. 


WHAT'S IN A WORD? When the word is TABOR, a lot.  The Governor is going to through some serious machinations to avoid giving back money that was overtaxed in the form of the bogus Hospital Provider Fee/Tax.  Now that the money has rolled in, there is too much, kicking in TABOR rebates.  Heh.  This is what you get when you try to get fancy to get around the law.


WHERE ARE THE BIG ARTICLES ABOUT OUTSIDE MONEY NOW? The Post has had a field day talking about outside money from the right.  They are oddly silent on the outside money that pours into Colorado on the Left.  And there is a lot of it.    


IS SOCIALISM OVER IN VENEZUELA? The opposition crushed Nicolas Maduro on Sunday.  Is this the end of socialism in Venezuela?  It remains to be seen how the opposition will clean up the hot mess left behind by two decades of socialist nonsense.  


IF YOU'RE WORRIED ABOUT MUSLIM RADICALS You are the problem according to the stupidest column I've read in about 100 years.  Feel your IQ drop by reading it here.
