If you're paying attention to politics in Colorado, you know that few people have any clue about the most important political contest here: the state senate race in Arvada/Westminster, where Republican Laura Woods is battling Democrat Rachel Zenzinger. But the importance of the race apparently isn't a good enough news...
Editorial Page Editor,
"Good for Mike Coffman." That's the first line of an August Denver Post editorial, and, as it turns out, an excellent summation of the The Post editorial page's singular stance toward Coffman over many years. I just finished reviewing five years of Post editorials mentioning Coffman, and, of the 43...
Last year's recall of Jefferson County school board member Julie Williams is widely considered a huge factor in this year's Arvada/Westminster state senate race that will likely determine whether Republicans retain control of the state senate. Jefferson Country voters threw out Tea Party conservatives on their school board, with...
Suspending driver's licenses takes people who are poor, and traps them in debt. It takes Americans hanging on by a thread, and robs them of their livelihoods.
The Colorado Independent's Corey Hutchins took a risk last week and tried figure out U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman's stance on a very specific immigration issue. If you're a reporter, you know that's going to cause a serious headache before you start, because it's so hard to sort out where Coffman...
The newest forms of money - bleeding edge, blockchain-based cryptocurrencies - look a lot more like the oldest forms than anything that appeared in the meantime. Over the millennia money has taken many different forms. For seven thousand years or more, gold and silver have remained...
Where is the public apology from St. Paul's School? Or from Owen Labrie, his father and mother? What about the very accomplished and successful members of St. Paul's School board of trustees?

The facts demonstrate that building a wall is purely a political ploy and attempt to pander to Trump's base. After all, it is a powerful hallmark of his campaign that aims to create a culture of division, based on dominance and hate.
In a Facebook post last week, Colorado Republican Party Vice Chair Derrick Wilburn inadvertently sums up what Republicans have to do on social issues, if they expect to be a serious political force in...
We all have to take a role in addressing discrimination where it exists. I believe Airbnb has done that, and while the effort is still a work in progress, this work will lead to better policies and technologies that will bring us together and ultimately end discrimination.
You would think as an entrepreneur and new parent that I would have no time for reading, but I'm working on catching up with Warren Buffet who reads thousands of pages a day. While I'm not there yet, I do like to read all types of books in my...
When you're just getting a business started, it can be tempting to over-rely on your personal network for business leads and financial support. However, it's important to preserve your personal network for the times that you really need it for personal support. It is possible to run out of...
If Colorado reporters want a local window into where Donald Trump is aiming with his speech last night, bashing undocumented immigrants, they should connect with Otero County Colorado Republican Chair Judy Rydberg Reyher, who apparently...
I didn't realize how pervasive animal exploitation is in our culture until I had to become more mindful.

Reporters shouldn't be fooled by Rep. Mike Coffman's recycled attempts to paint his Democratic challenger Morgan Carroll as anti-immigrant. Coffman tried the same tactic in 2014 and failed. The point needs to be made in light of the Coffman's campaign recent tweet that Carroll "supported [former Rep. Tom] Tancredo's...
Ken Buck called Donald Trump a "fraud" and said that "Trump's proposal (to ban all Muslims) violates the Constitution, the values of our nation, the Republican Party platform, and my conscience." That was in December. Mr. Buck was correct. But now Congressman Buck expects you to vote for Donald Trump; this fraud, this unconstitutional bigot, this violator of national values.

I called Raymond Garcia, a Republican candidate for Colorado state house, after I saw a couple memes he posted for his Facebook friends. One depicts an image of Hillary Clinton on a bucket of "HRC"...
After once calling Donald Trump a "fraud," and then remaining silent on the GOP presidential nominee for months, U.S. Rep. Ken Buck has now thrown his endorsment to the celebrity mogul. "What we have to do as Republicans, in my view, is we got to get Donald...
Leaving women's medical coverage in limbo or up to the Colorado Supreme Court is not a viable option.
