Not all construction & "growth" is equal. We need to make the most of our existing infrastructure and focus on mixed-use developments to ensure that there are adequate tax revenues to maintain the infrastructure.
Sprawling construction is bankrupting our local governments. For some background information on this Charles Marhon’s webpage to get a breakdown of how much tax revenues are needed for routine maintenance of various types of infrastructure:

This is such awesome news, especially as a way to treat ill children!
Recently in a staff meeting, my Director who is a Mormon told us as a group that MMJ and anyone who works in this field were "immoral" and nobody should be doing any research, production or distribution of this product as medicine. I am very glad to hear that you have proven him wrong!
What is even worse is I can't say anything in public at work for being MMJ patient since I can be fired for not passing a drug test, and HR has stated that even MMJ patients can be fired. (I went thru years of hell over this matter and lost my yearly raise just for writing a letter to the editor as an MMJ patient, then was told to keep my mouth shut and head down.) I think it is immoral that he is allowed to state his religious opinion at work when I can be fired for stating my opinion because he is my boss.

Well thinker, I think it is a good idea to delay the mandatory sign up date. Since the website is obviously not working correctly, the delay should be put in place so the sign up issues don't prevent anyone from getting this wonderful product before the mandatory date. Not a year like the repubicans are wanting, but a month or two makes sense to me.
Inherently flaw and unworkable... nice lie, I mean try... but no thanks.
If the City Utilities gives water to the Broadmoor so wealthy people can use it for recreation while we the people have not been allowed into the south slope assets for five decades, and those assets are owned by the people, then all of the senior management of the CS Utilities should be fired.
Well happyfew, what do you make of the left-leaning legislators (how's that for alliteration?!) asking for a delay to this turkey? Are they just parroting their GOP counterparts who asked it be pushed back because it was inherently flawed and too unworkable as-is? Gonna try to spin this as somehow different, since it's the Dems asking for the delays?....nice try, but no thanks...
As with anything else, you get the government you pay for. Schools are worth it. And taxing recreational marijuana? That's a no-brainer.
faux news swallowers will parrot how expensive ACA will be, but that is not the case for most people. Most of the people whose costs will increase had horrible coverage that didn't cover much and now will have real health insurance. The biggest omission of the article is that insurance companies must put 85% of the money earned into health care for people... not extra bonus's for the big wig's. This has ended up with thousands of people getting rebates from the fat cat insurance companies already. The biggest concern for the repubicans is they know that the ACA will work and it will be very popular. So they are spreading their lies on thick in one last feeble attempt to stop it... nice try, but no thanks.
What a surprise - a liberal newspaper endorses raising taxes. How about recommending the cancellation of some old taxes first?
"Well, if you already have health insurance through an employer, or through a government program like Medicaid or Medicare, the answer is: nothing, really." Nice try there hipster but it's a swing and a miss. Peoples health insurance costs are going through the roof.
i don't know why yall put the "for now" in the title of this article. Its not gonna change any time soon. Unfortunately, Obamacare is the law of the land...
Very Good News for Zaki Jackson !

Thanks to Colorado Voters !
The tax on tobacco (federal + state) is 43%.
Why are idiots insisting that it should be treated like alcohol? Because the tax is less? So, let me post a comment to their level of stupidity: does marijuana look more like alcohol or tobacco?
You can be sure of one thing in this world - whatever side the money is on is the wrong side.
Only a total whack job would move into a town at the bottom of a canyon and then think the flooding is caused by man made global warming/ climate change or whatever the gaia religion is calling itself now. One great question for the climate genius here, what do you think made the canyon in the first place? Here is where the rubber meets the road. The last time the Waldo Canyon area was logged was well over 100 years ago. Then manitou hippies all decided that logging was bad and completely made it illegal in Colorado. Then a fire breaks out and vaporizes the ground because it is an unstoppable fire, because it hasn't been logged. Then the rains come, and the same manitou hippies that treated all logging companies as "evil" are now feeling the full brunt of their foolish ideas come to fruition. Have fun with that Manitou.
The people endorsing Proposition AA - people like Attorney General John Suthers, State Representative and Minority Leader Mark Waller, State Rep Rhonda Fields, and the groups The Colorado Association of Chiefs of Police, Smart Colorado, and The Colorado Municipal League, are the very same people and groups that actively tried to stop Amendment 64.
Vote NO on AA!!!
Thank you Kelly for everything you did in the aftermath of the fires and floods. And you are right, this is the new normal as hard as it may be for some to swallow. We need to work together as a community to come up with some long term solutions and plans of action in the face of of this new reality as well as continuing to push our law makers to enact policy change to start curbing more extreme weather in the future.
I was honored to get to briefly meet the folks involved in this project and am very grateful they are getting the truth about climate change out. I know it is going to be painful to see and relive but I will be tuning in on Tuesday for sure.
This is the new Republican mode: no new taxes...just more debt.
LOL King Bach strikes again.......so we ready to get him out yet?
