No public money to subsidize the ski industry.

Because of all the weekend skiers heading home, it can take 3 to 4 hours or more to travel east from Summit County back to the front range on a Sunday afternoon in the winter.

This Sunday afternoon congestion headed east on I-70 has been the source of much discussion – and consternation – lately. SeeExperts suggest ‘preferred option’ to ease Twin Tunnels bottleneck on I-70” from the Denver Post and “Fix I-70 Day” on the Huffington Post.

Some of the suggestions to fix the problem are highlighted in these two articles.
All of them cost millions and millions (and millions) of dollars. Let us cut right to the chase… the ski chase, that is. Here is a crazy idea: make those that profit off the use of the public highways pay for their expansion.
If the Summit County resorts, and those farther west like Vail and Beaver Creek, want better access to their services, they should pay for that improved access. There is no good reason that the taxpayers of Colorado pay to improve the bottom line of private business.
Why should a family in Pueblo that does not ski pay to help the ski industry? Why should anyone in Sterling that has never even been to the mountains pay to help the ski industry?
They should not.
Let the ski resorts come up with a plan. Let them pay for it. If it is not worth it to them, why should it be worth it to anyone else?
It should not.
Any government money to expand I-70 is nothing but corporate welfare and a subsidy to private business. “Progressives” should be against corporate welfare. “Conservatives” should be against subsidies.

Just a piece of paper…

Special thanks to the two Democrats that voted for HB 1205

Rep. Chris Holbert’s HB-1205 “Concerning the authority of a law-abiding person to carry a concealed handgun without a permit,” passed the House Judiciary Committee with an 8-3 vote yesterday. All six Republican members of the committee voted for it, and Democrats Pete Lee and Daniel Kagan also voted “aye.”
The two Democrats will undoubtedly get some heat from some of their constituents.
I just sent an email to them both thanking them for their vote. I think we all should. Let’s let them know we appreciate it.
My email to each of them:
I wanted to take the time to let you know many of us appreciate your “yes” vote in the House Judiciary Committee on Rep. Holbert’s HB 1205 regarding the carrying of concealed weapons by law-abiding citizens.
Thank you, Sir.
Rep Pete Lee’s email:
Rep Daniel Kagan’s email:
Let’s give them props when it is due. Maybe they’ll keep doing the right thing…..

The Lion of Liberty

By David L. Kelly 16 February 2011

Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

Nearly all of us, who have [...] [...]
