Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases:
If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
—Ronald Reagan, 1981

Inslee's plan would impact Colorado's economy by over $31 billion. According to Forbes, fracking saves Americans $180 billion annually on gasoline so this yet another ignorant, ill-conceived Democrat idea.

How many articles do you want on Elizabeth (Pocahontas) Warren and her decades-long claim to be Native American? And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez… Every day she blows out a new cloud of fake news, hyperbole and outright lies. What's sadder, in an effort to cover for their colleague, she forces fellow Democrats to lie as well. Lies upon lies.

Colorado Marijuana Sales in March Hit Highest Monthly Total Ever – HOLLY COMM: As a local radio show host pointed out yesterday morning, Pueblo (the city, not where we live) is gaining unenviable notoriety as being the drug capital of Colorado. This is a sorry situation. While pot tax $$ bring nice benefits, it's also attracting undesirables. Colorado's homeless population has grown because they'd rather panhandle for dope instead of a decent meal. Second, it's attracting an wanted out-of-state criminal element. In our little quiet unincorporated town of Pueblo West, large-scale pot busts have been made over the past several years. Cubans and Mexicans come up to Pueblo County and rent homes as their pot growing facilities. Cops were alerted due to the unusually high electricity usage for the size home, not to mention the smell. Large grow areas were also discovered in our neighboring San Isabel Mountains. This cash cow is more like a whole herd and it's not going away. CO legalized pot sales Jan 2014. From then through the first 3 months of 2019, Colorado sold just shy of $6.5 billion of pot. That netted the state treasury just a little under $400 million.

This graph from Colorado's Dept. of Rev. tells it all. Mistakenly, we though it was primarily medical marijuana people were using. Nope, it's mostly the 'get high' stuff. Then there's illicit drug use as a potent End Times Sign… ET Revelation 9:21 Not only is America not turning away from this activity, a great deal of the Country is embracing it. Now Colorado has legalized psychedelic mushrooms.

Democrats Push To Bring Back Earmarks, Raise Lawmakers' Pay – HOLLY NOTE: Yep, they need more $$. Kidding! As it is, their starting salary is $174,000. On average Representatives work only 138 days out of 365, while Senators work about 162. Their approval rating still sits at a paltry 20. So yeah, they deserve yet another pay raise. Still kidding. Last thought: Remember when shortly after AOC was elected and she whined and moaned that she couldn't make the move to D.C. and afford an apartment? Then 'miraculously' she moved into an expensive and exclusive area that barred poorer people.

50% of Californians Say They Will Leave as State Leads in Outmigration – HOLLY NOTE: I It's OK by residents in California and New York – two of the most Progressive states in the U.S. – when they demand all the freebies UNTIL they have to pay for them.

Now half of California – or about 20 million – wants to leave the state and New Yorkers are in the process of same. The biggest problem with their outmigration is that they come to beautiful states that are conservative – or only slightly liberal. Over 4 decades, we've watched Californians move to Colorado and change it from a conservative-to-moderate state to one nearly overwhelmed by liberals. If you think this is an exaggeration, listen to Michelle Morin's podcast, "The Leftist Takeover of Colorado."

This started ramping up in the late 70s when the cost of Calif. housing went crazy. Now Colorado is experiencing the same housing shortage that spiraled California's prices into the stratosphere. Our little unincorporated area in southern Colorado has doubled in population since we moved here in 2001.

Colorado's entire population is about 5.5 million – nearly double that of when I first moved here. California's is about 40 million – many who are illegals. If even 25% of those who want to leave the state come here, those nearly 4 million would about double our population and complete the radical change of this beautiful state.

I coined the term "Californicates" decades ago before it ever became a 'thing' and ultimately a TV show because they are totally screwing up Colorado by moving here. Stupid is as stupid does. So our point of view… if you want to come to Colorado, come, but don't make us into the mess you voted for in your home state and abandoned. Learn from your mistakes.

It's tragic and short-sighted that whether it's people who move here from socialist countries or within America from very liberal states, they then begin to vote for and implement those same socialist values that destroyed the areas they came from.

This is especially important for women whose bodies come in a million shapes and varieties. We need to try on clothes and shoes. Color: Everyone's desktop monitor, tablet and smart phone display color differently. If you're trying to match specific colors, it's essential to see it in person.
