WE DON'T DESERVE DOGS This story of the little Irish Jack Russell Terrier who stayed with the dead body of his master for 72 days proves once again we don't deserve dogs. Hats off to little Finney and may we all experience this kind of loyalty in our lives.
WHAT NOT TO FEED YOUR DOG AT THANKSGIVING Face it, we pig out and most of give our pups a few "treats" on Thanksgiving. Here's a list of things they should NOT eat so they don't get sick and desert you on a hike when you die.
GETTING TAKEOUT IS GOING TO GET MORE EXPENSIVE As the Democrats who run this state banned styrofoam containers and plastic bags for takeout. The ban will take effect this January so expect plastic containers to be the norm. Oh, and bring your own bag to get it home. Read the new rules here. Just for comparison a styrofoam food container to go is about 15 cents per container, whereas hard plastic containers are almost 50 cents a container. The fully compostable one are 60 cents a container. This will get passed on to you.
THE SPECIAL SESSION IS COMING FOR YOUR TABOR REFUNDS Because Lord Polis of Boulder Manor doesn't give a crap about what the voters say, he knows best, amiright? After the Governor narrowed the session and added that the state should "backfill" so called lost revenue that they haven't even gotten yet with TABOR refunds one Democrat legislator is planning to do just that and more. They are planning on NOT lowering the tax rate and giving more of our TABOR refunds to other crap when we CLEARLY said we want our money back. But the Democrats know the voters will vote for them anyway because the Republicans suck here anyway so they don't have to pay attention to the voters. This is what happens in single party rule government with a non-functioning opposition party.
THE AIR FORCE ACADEMY HAS A RAPE PROBLEM This story is heartbreaking but I am glad this family has the fortitude to push forward to demand real change at the Air Force Academy. Their daughter took her own life several years after being raped at the Air Force Academy and having the rape be completely mishandled by the Academy. Sexual assault is a huge problem apparently, but no one is talking about it. Now her parents are suing and demanding real and systemic change at the Academy and I hope they win. People should not have to worry about being sexually assaulted when the sign up to serve their nation.
HOW A CU REGENT GOT POT TAX MONEY FOR HER OWN BUSINESS Jimmy Sengenberger did some serious digging about the sweetheart deal CU Regent Wanda James helped craft for her own pot business using tax dollars that were designed to go to education. It seems Ms. James was instrumental in getting the social equity loan program passed and signed by her friend the Governor, just so she could become one of the first recipients of it's largesse. To be clear, this is a loan program,but a loan program with a fixed interest rate below current market rates. Read about it here.
SPEAKER JOHNSON GOT SOMETHING DONE That seems to split the baby when it comes to appropriations bills. Instead of doing a giant omnibus spending bill, he did two continuing resolutions that divided spending into two categories. From RollCall.com:
The bill extends funding for agencies for different periods of time, in an uncommon maneuver. Agencies covered by the Agriculture; Energy-Water; Military Construction-VA and Transportation-HUD bills would have their funding extended to Jan. 19, while the eight other appropriations bills would be extended to Feb. 2.
So we can get through the holidays without a kerfuffle and start the new year off with actual appropriations bills.

THE MOST FAMOUS INDIGENOUS CANADIAN IS A FRAUD This story is another case of someone lying about being an indian for their own personal enrichment, but this particular scam has been going on for decades in Canada by a woman who called herself Buffy Saint-Marie. An investigation by the CBC shows she was not born into a tribe and then adopted away, she was born in Massachusetts to parents of Italian and English ancestry. She is still claiming to be a native, and since she's been working this scam for sixty years I don't blame her as she probably believes it herself.
THE LEFT WING COUPLE FUNDING THE PRO HAMAS RALLIES This is a very interesting story about a bred from birth Marxist who made it big in tech and is now using his capitalism gotten gains to fund Marxist education and pro Hamas rallies. Read it here.
BIDEN GIVES MORE MONEY TO IRAN So now we're literally funding both sides of the conflict in Israel. Here's the tweet:
Here's a longer article on how this incompetent boob of a President is allowing a terror supporting nation access to a pantload of money. He must lose this next election. The world can't afford Joe Biden.
WHY HAMAS MUST BE STOPPED They are doing this to children. This is being taught to children in school.
