Welcome back to Denver, Thom

My husband Bob and I look forward to seeing you at the Tattered Cover Book tonight.

I'm on my way out to voluteer as a sign waver asking constituents of my Senate District 19, to NOT sign the petition to recall Senator Evie Hudak. The gist of their recall petition is that Senator Hudak wants to take their guns based on being one of the majority of legislators in our Colorado Senate and House to vote for the gun safety package that was passed and was voted into Colorado law.

If you get a chance, come on out to 80th and Wadsworth and wave a sign with us.

Getting the Most Out of a Progressive President

There is already much speculation about who will run for president in 2016 - especially the excitement about a Bernie Sanders entry. I say wait a minute here. We still have three years left on President Obama's watch. I think the best boost we could give to progressive candidates in 2016, is to first focus all our energy on 2014.

I Made a Difference Today

I spent 5 hours at the local Department of Economic Security today. Hopefully, my reasons for being there were resolved, however as I wind up my day I am gladdened that I made a difference twice while I was there.

Eight-Month-Old Pup Serves As His Brother's Seeing-Eye Dog

A dog's loyalty knows no boundaries, especially when it comes to it's own blood......Two stray dogs found in Philadelphia are providing a heartwarming example of this.....The Chester County SPCA posted a photo of the dogs, Jeffrey and Jermaine, embracing each other while sleeping.

The photo itself is a perfect representation of their relationship.

Jeffrey is blind......According to the SPCA, his brother, Jermaine, has dedicated his life to be his guide dog, helping him move around.

Hideous Dianne Feinstein, DEMOCRAT, pushing bill to entrench and worsen NSA’s spying on 99%.

Nearly six months after Edward Snowden blew the whistle on the National Security Agency's massive violations of civil liberties, Congress is considering what to do about it.

Why Blame Obama?

The news is filled with (mostly feigned) shock and outrage about the promise that if you like your health insurance, etc., etc. What seems to be missing is the role of the insurance industry in this scenario, to wit, their choosing to send out cancellation notices and terminate some people's policies (I got one). Why did they do it? The most likely answer would be that they figured they would not make a big enough profit on these products. Their enrollees probably "liked" these products because they were cheap, and because they were cheap the
