… So Few … So Many

My Senator Cory Gardner sent out an email message on July 1, accolading himself for all the good things he’s doing.  Unfortunately, I disagree with his enthusiasm over his listed issues:   Senator Gardner: I just went back and reviewed your July 1 message I received via email.  I know you try to keep your …

Government Action – an oxymoron?

In some cases there’s so much action, nothing is ever accomplished.  The Government Action actually completed by the government and the action required by others because of government are ofter direct opposites.  Water projects – this week’s case in point!  This to my Representative, Scott Tipton (R-CO).   Dear Scott – I read your June …

I Remember Way Back in 2014…

I missed sending a letter last week – much to the concern of my representative’s staffs, I’m sure.  I was traveling and preparing for this past weekend’s Colorado GOP State Committee meeting – as if any preparation helped… Some Déjà vu for Representative Scott Tipton (R-CO) this week.   Scott – I was reviewing some …

Who’s really WIINing!

Big money being spent in a short period of time (lame duck style!)  In addition to the really big bucks bills, my Representative Scott Tipton is proud of the WIIN Act.  Me – maybe not so much!  My letter to Scott is copied to my two Senators too. Also go down a posting to see …

Senator Bennet – It’s your JOB!

Again – Colorado’s Senator Michael Bennet refuses to cross party lines and represent his state regarding the EPA’s attempt to gain control over all the water in the US.  Once again I’ll attempt to open his eyes…yes it is like trying to fart into a hurricane…   Senator Bennet I’m very concerned about the form …

Ignoring Senate issues important to Colorado

Senator Michael Bennet (D-CO) is up for re-election and must be more worried about campaign funds (I receive a request almost daily) than the nation’s business.  I don’t think he’s doing much to help his re-election efforts if his vote to not review the WOTUS[1] in the Senate last week is any indication. Hence this …

I’m Insulted

No letter last week – hunting season (there are priorities). Then my Senator Michael Bennet sends me an e-mail thanking me for writing to him.  I guess no one in his office knows what is happening in this country… After multiple letters regarding many water issues (legislation, rulings, executive orders), Bennet’s office thinks I must …

An Executive Order too Far (apologies to Cornelius Ryan)

Massive EPA Rulings and White House Executive Orders – a real representative way to run our government, eh? Fortunately one Federal Court of Appeals recognizes that is not the way our Democratic Republic is supposed to function.  Here’s my request to get my Senators to recognize the growing tyranny and use the Administration’s overreach on …

Court says “Wait” – You should say “Stop!”

Thankfully there are still some judges that can see through an injustice – just as Federal Judge Ralph Erickson has done.  The Administration couldn’t get congressional approval of the EPA “Water Rule” so another tyrannical Executive Order was issued.  13 states sued.  Here’s what I think should happen…   Colorado Representatives: While you guys are …

California is the “West”? What About Us?

Ya gotta love the way our Congress titles legislation.  There is a bill named Western Water and American Food Security Act of 2015..   In reality it is the “California Water and California Food…”.  California is in the midst of a severe drought, I get that, so why not call the legislation what it really is???  …
