Moderate leadership in Colorado

      Republican leaders in Colorado, Speaker of the House Amy Stephens and Senate Minority Leader Frank McNulty are being criticized by members of their own party.  The usual  label RINO has been pulled out.  Republican In Name Only.  Maybe the two are not as conservative as people thought.  Maybe they recognize that Democrats have a governor and a chamber. 
      Republicans can tack hard right and score points with their voters.  They would achhieve gridlock and not much else.   The other approach is to take a moderate approach and actually govern.

Book Review

For those  who like to follow Colorado politics, I would reccomendd a book called The Blueprint by Adam Scraeger and Rob Witwer.  The book lays out in detail how the Democratic party took control of Colorado politics between 1998-2008 through the development of independent groups.

State Troopers in action?

Hey the Remembe Governor Walker issued arrest warrants for the Democrats of the Wisconsin house for leaving the state and preventing a quorum.  Basicly they all took some time off for a while. I know he is on the verge of issuing arrest warrants for himself and anybody else who just participated in this farce violating the open meeting laws in order to pass an anti union bill.  Perhaps members of the police union shouold issue official warnings stating that future violations will result in arrest.

Recruiting Nascar Style

       Yes we are payinng millions of dollars to recruit rednecks to our military.  We are targeting them with what they hold most dear NASCAR.  The approximate sponsorship totals are $20 million dollars to Dale Earnhardt Jr. from the National Gaurd.  The U.S. Army pays $7.4 million to Ryan Newman, while the Air Force sponsors A.J. Allmendinger with $1.6 million.  I guess the Air Force undervalues vehicles that don't fly.

       The House of Representatives has voted to renew these sponsorship contracts.  Approximately $28 million worth of military recruiting is spent so white people can watch cars drive around the track.  If we want our armed forces to be more diverse we should keep recruiting away from NASCAR.
