I couldn't be reached for this story. Seriously? Did they even try? No call, no voicemail, no email, no facebook message, no website contact form entry, no twitter message, nothing.

Public Service announcement:

The Sawaya Law Firm is offering "free" cab rides on Halloween this year for the Denver metro area. You can also call upon an Uber driver in the metro area for a cost.

McDivitt Law is hosting a program called Safe and Sober Free Cab Ride Home in Colorado Springs, Pueblo, and Pueblo West, to encourage potential drunk drivers not to drive home themselves.

Fort Collins has RamRide which is free for CSU students only.

I couldn't find anything free for Grand Junction but http://www.bemydd.com seems to have some paid options for the area.

Durango doesn't seem to have any options available at the moment. Take a friend with you to be a Designated Driver.

*Note: I do not endorse the groups mentioned above in any way nor do I even know anyone who works with them. I'm just letting people know about services they can take advantage of to help keep their butt out of a cage.

Apparently the major candidates are talking about crime and being tough on it. If we really want to be tough on crime we must first realize that more laws create more criminals. If the laws weren't so numerous their enforcement wouldn't be so subjective.

Liberty: it's just not that hard.

October 14, 2014 Buenos Aires, Argentina In the pantheon of utter political stupidity in our time, the competition is pretty fierce to see who ranks #1. But I have to imagine that, even with so many rivals, Argentina’s Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner makes a pretty compelling argument to be

Major party candidates want an income tax (If they didn't they would have ended it by now). I do not want an income tax and I've been trying to bring something like this to Colorado.

Interesting poll numbers are out. Turns out I didn't steal votes, I earned them equally from across the spectrum except from independents who tend to favor me more. It would appear that independent voters are more likely to research the candidates and not succumb to the fear tactics employed to influence votes.

Maybe instead of worrying about who is growing a plant without a permit (mother nature doesn't have one) we should be working on the coming PERA disaster, the shoddy implementation of the CORE project which manages 20 billion of state assets, or perhaps even the lack of a monetary solution outside of the federal reserve system.

C-SPAN has decided to play politics in direct contradiction with their mission of being a pubic affairs network. They have elected to walk back their promise to air the Free and Equal debate I participated in.
