Leading in the wrong direction

Some opinions, comments and links relating to what is happening in this great nation and, in particular, in Western Colorado.

 

Well, there are only 10 days left until Christmas. I did not waste time making a list this year. I simply handed my wife the latest Cabela’s catalog. Can’t wait to see how that works out.

Last week another public entity in Colorado added their contribution to completely alleviating what is left of state sovereignty in this country. The Jefferson County Schools were all worried that the non-elected self-appointed nutrition expert that is married to our president would be a failure in her attempt to mandate the type of food served in school lunch programs. The JeffCo lunch purchases were way down. So, they decided to bribe the parents and kids by placing the names of those purchasing the bland diet in a raffle. Then they gave some smiling little girl a bicycle.

During my somewhat rebellious days in high school, a principal called me into the office and told me I was a leader. That was good he said, but it seemed that I had a problem in that I was leading in the wrong direction. That, it seems to me, is what Colorado is doing.

In Washington State they recently passed a bill (I-594, if you want to read it) that expanded the background checks for all gun sales. Suspiciously, the bill has some of that famous Colorado ambiguity when it comes to transfers of guns between private parties. I wonder if the fact that Michael Bloomberg was behind both of these legislative overhauls of our constitution had anything to do with the similarity.

We all know that Colorado and Washington are also in the so-called groundbreaking area of marijuana legalization and Colorado is considered the leader in that too.

It would really be nice if that old principal were around to tell Colorado to turn around and lead in the right direction for a change. Maybe if Colorado decided that we were going to send a message to the country that the whole constitution is important to us, we could get states like Washington to follow us on that too. Maybe if we became the leader in awareness of the 10th Amendment we could get people to listen. We have to start by telling the next Colorado politician that takes money from Michael Bloomberg to take a hike.

We will see how this goes. Meanwhile, I will not be surprised when our biased network media tells us in the near future that Washington State has a new plan to bribe kids to eat non-fat peanut butter and sugar-free jelly on gluten-free bread made from organic wild grass seed grown without any fertilizer on government owned property where access is only allowed on foot. Lead on Colorado.

Remember, I only send out these missives to those who have asked for them. I do not share your email addresses with anyone and I use the Reagan email precisely because they don’t share or sell the addresses either. If you are getting this because someone forwarded it to you and you don’t want it, tell him or her not to forward any more. On the other hand, if you received a copy and would like to see more of my ranting, simply drop me a line at coxnotes@Reagan.com I will put you on my exclusive, but growing list.
