"The Most Important Race You're Not Watching"

Jason Salzman | September 26, 2016 | Denver
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...

A Newspaper Shouldn't Be a Cheerleader for a Politician

Jason Salzman | September 27, 2016 | Denver
"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...

Backfire: Ousted Jeffco School Board Member Endorses Woods

Jason Salzman | September 21, 2016 | Denver
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...

Stop Suspending Driver's Licenses For Unpaid Fees

Omar Epps | September 15, 2016 | Politics
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.

Coffman Still Opposed to Dual-Language Ballots?

Jason Salzman | September 13, 2016 | Denver
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 First and Last Word in Money: How Bitcoin is more like Ancient Sumer than the Federal Reserve

John Rampton | September 13, 2016 | Business
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...

'A Very Good Liar'

Ken Toltz | September 9, 2016 | Politics
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?

Evaluating Trump's Immigration Plan: Facts To Bring Down A Wall Of Fiction

Hector E. Sanchez | September 9, 2016 | Latino Voices
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.

Airbnb's Work To Fight Bias And Discrimination

Eric Holder | September 8, 2016 | Black Voices
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.

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...

Coffman's Recycled Immigration Fakery

Jason Salzman | September 9, 2016 | Denver
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's Endorsement of Trump Says a Lot About Ken Buck

Bob Seay | August 29, 2016 | Denver
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.

Jason Salzman | August 26, 2016 | Denver
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...
