9/25/23 Blog: How Energy Efficient is YOUR Home?

OKAY BRONCOS FANS, WE NEED SOME DESPERATE MEASURES The team is gonna do what the team is gonna do, but we as fans need to come up with something. Do we all meet at Empower Field with sage sticks? Do we start a prayer chain? What do we do? Are you ditching your gear? Is it time for brown paper bags yet?

HOW ENERGY EFFICIENT IS YOUR HOME REALLY? There is a new challenge in town designed to show the difference between how an home built with the latest in energy efficiency compares against a home built in a more traditional fashion. Find out more here and I've got Ken Levenson from the challenge on at 1:30.

A BOY HAS BEEN RIPPED FROM HIS FAMILY FOR FIVE YEARS This story is heartbreaking. I met Gabe Wooley at the Steamboat Conference and he asked if he could tell me the story of his nephew Clayton and the horrible story of Gabe's parents being accused of horrific crimes by an overzealous detective and how Oklahoma DHS won't return the boy to the family even though the charges were all dropped. Visit rescueclayton.com to find out more. He joins me at 2:30 to share his story

JON CALDARA IS DROPPING POOP ON THE CAPITOL STEPS TODAY I heard the story on Colorado's Morning News today that at 1pm my pal Jon Caldara from the Independence Institute is gonna drop bags of human poop, which I'm guessing he collected from outside II, on the steps of the Capitol in order to protest the fact that nothing is being done to stop people from pooping on his doorstep every day. I'm trying to get him on the phone about it at some point.

WHO IS RUNNING FOR DENVER SCHOOL BOARD? The Denver Gazette does a profile here and please pay attention. Vote for anyone who is NOT an incumbent. They all need to go.

I INTEND ON ASKING THEM IF THEY SUPPORT TEACHERS LIKE THIS ONE Leave it to LibsofTikTok to keep bringing the hits about our local schools. Check this Tweet out.

Why is asking a coworker about their sex life sexual harassment but asking 10th graders what turns them on isn't? A great comment from X.

THE CAPITOL HILL ENCAMPMENT IS BEING CLEANED UP And some of the urban outdoorsman are going to be moved into hotel rooms, but it won't be easy. Check this quote out from one of the camps residents:

"They’re trying something different. I mean nobody wants to see us, they don't want to look at us..," said Lively. But Lively acknowledged many may check-in and not stay.
"There's a lot of freedom out here," Lively admitted.

Funny how it's Cap Hill being cleaned up first, isn't it? And that sure doesn't sound like this is a housing issue, it sounds like it's a lifestyle issue.

THIS AS A HOMELESS MAN ATTACKS ANOTHER MAN IN BOULDER I don't write about homeless people attacking other homeless people because that doesn't move the needle. But when a Boulder resident is attacked by a homeless dude and put in the hospital it's worth a mention. Read it here.

DEMOCRATS OFFICIALLY DON'T BELIEVE IN FREE SPEECH And I wish I were surprised by the results of this poll but I am not at all. The party that used to be absolutely for free speech when it meant not being arrested for coarse language (I'm looking at you, Lenny Bruce) to supporting it's extension to cover pornography is now anti-free speech. Look at some of the results of a new Real Clear Investigations poll on attitudes about free speech:

Republican voters (74%) and independents (61%) believe speech should be legal “under any circumstances, while Democrats are almost evenly divided. A bare majority of Democrats (53%) say speech should be legal under any circumstances, while 47% say it should be legal “only under certain circumstances.”
Nearly one-third of Democratic voters (34%) say Americans have “too much freedom.” This compared to 14.6% of Republicans. Republicans were most likely to say Americans have too little freedom (46%), while only 22% of Democrats feel that way. Independents were in the middle in both categories.
Although majorities of Democrats, Republicans, and independents agree the news media should be able to report stories they believe are in the national interest, this consensus shifts when it comes to social media censorship. A majority of Democrats (52%) approve of the government censoring social media content under the rubric of protecting national security. Among Republicans and independents, this percentage is only one-third.
Poll respondents were read this statement: “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” Only 31% of Democratic voters “strongly agreed” with that sentiment, compared to 51% of Republicans.

So which is the party of oppression? Of New Speak? Of giving government unlimited power to control our lives?

A NEW POLL SHOWS BEATING BIDEN HANDILY And as I always say the only poll that matters is on election day, but this one is a kind of stunning outlier. Look at page 9 of this pdf to see the line where Trump beats Biden by 10 points. That being said, this poll oversampled Republican leaning voters in my opinion so should be taken with a grain of salt.

DEBUNKING THE SCIENTISTS This is a cool story about three guys who are literally taking down the intelligentsia class one bad study after another. This is important because one political party seems to want to put "experts" in charge of everything and as long as they have the "right" academic credentials behind their names their word is taken as gospel. *Cough*Dr. Fauci*Cough*. This group of three guys is simply taking the work produced by these people and crunching the numbers to find that the researchers who are promoting them are simply lying about what they say.

LOOK GREAT NAKED? THERE'S A DATING SHOW FOR YOU There is a zero percent chance I would ever appear on a dating show but less than a zero percent chance I would agree to do it naked. But others aren't so shy, and now a British dating show in which:

a single “chooser” critiques and eliminates six potential dates standing on a stage by scrutinizing their fully nude bodies, which are gradually revealed one part at a time (faces are revealed last). When only two potential dates remain, the chooser strips out of their own clothes too, giving the remaining two contestants the opportunity to critique them. The final couple then go out on a date, with their clothes on.

That's a big ol bag of nope from me, but you can now watch it on Max. And it is entirely uncensored. You can see the censored trailer for "Naked Attraction" in this story.

OZEMPIC MAKES SOME TOO SKINNY And though in Hollywood there is allegedly no such thing, Sharon Osbourne says she got too skinny from Ozempic.

A FEDERAL JUDGE JUST STRUCK DOWN THE HIGH CAPACITY MAGAZINE BAN In California. Listener Joe read the opinion already and sent me this about the what's in the footnotes:

" See Duncan, 366 F. Supp. 3d at 1134 (“As two masked and armed men broke in, Susan Gonzalez was shot in the chest. She made it back to her bedroom and found her husband’s .22 caliber pistol. Wasting the first rounds on warning shots, she then emptied the single pistol at one attacker. Unfortunately, now out of ammunition, she was shot again by the other armed attacker. She was not able to re-load or use a second gun. Both she and her husband were shot twice."
" When three armed intruders carrying what look like semi-automatic pistols broke into the home of a single woman at 3:44 a.m., she dialed 911. No answer. Feng Zhu Chen, dressed in pajamas, held a phone in one hand and took up her pistol in the other and began shooting. She fired numerous shots. She had no place to carry an extra magazine and no way to reload because her left hand held the phone with which she was still trying to call 911"
" A mother, Melinda Herman, and her nine-year-old twins were at home when an intruder broke in. She and her twins retreated to an upstairs crawl space and hid. Fortunately, she had a .38 caliber revolver. She would need it. The intruder worked his way upstairs, broke through a locked bedroom door and a locked bathroom door, and opened the crawl space door. The family was cornered with no place to run. He stood staring at her and her two children. The mother shot six times, hitting the intruder five times, when she ran out of ammunition"

I'm guessing the Supreme Court will have to sort this out. Read a story about it here. Gavin Newsom flipped out about it here.
