No, Defunding Planned Parenthood Wouldn't Make Colorado Better

Jason Salzman | Posted 08.21.2016 | Denver

It's true that there are many more community health centers than Planned Parenthood clinics in our state. But this doesn't mean that throwing more money at the community health clinics would provide equal or greater access to healthcare than what's available now.

Brauchler Wanted Murderer's Parents to Beg Him to Spare Their Son's Life

Brauchler denied this, but there he was leveling his harshest tone and barbs on conservative talk radio, home base of the Republican Party, on the morning after the verdict. You respect Brauchler for taking questions about the case, but why jump on conservative talk radio circuit and sound like a conservative talk-radio host?

In standing with House Speaker John Boehner on Friday to (temporarily) avert the shutdown of the Department of Homeland Security, Colorado's new Republican congressman, Ken Buck, has apparently had second thoughts about his pledge to shut down DHS if necessary to stop Obama from allowing some immigrants to avoid deportation.

Denver TV Reporter Mindlessly Attacks Obama (AUDIO)

Jason Salzman | Posted 04.29.2015 | Denver
Jason Salzman

To my way of thinking, Fox 31 Denver reporter Julie Hayden's repeated comments that Obama "doesn't love" America, doesn't even "like America," and in fact has "disdain" and "contempt" for our country, fall into the extreme/rude/bombastic category. And Hayden shouldn't be covering any story related to Obama, federal political issues, or, to be safe, any partisan political topic.

No Insurance? But You Get a Price List at the Hospital

Maybe the idea has merit, but Neville is overflowing with audacity to frame this bill as anything related to the Obamacare alternative that conservatives are desperately seeking. And of course, if he says it in front of a real reporter, or even if he doesn't, he should be asked about it.

If you live in Denver or send your kid to public school or get involved in our community in even the most limited way, you probably know families who will benefit from Obama's announcement to stop the deportation of some undocumented immigrants with family ties to our country.

I checked, and there's no relationship between bed bugs and undocumented immigrants. Nor is there any evidence that the respiratory illness at children's hospital has any connection to immigrants.

Jason Salzman

In this conversation with KNUS last week, Tancredo says it's not what gay people do that bothers him. He says he doesn't care. But he does have a problem with gay people forcing hetero people, like him, to break their religious convictions in order to respect, include, or accommodate gays.

Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott Gessler launched an ad yesterday attacking his rival Tom Tancredo as a loser because Tanc lost his 2010 campaign for governor. The conservative radio world isn't buying Gessler's attack.
