MY TRIP to COLORADO

It is great to get away and when I stop, I love to talk to people in locally-owned Restaurants and in Truck Stops, too. If they see the Badger shirt, some stop me. We travelled across  Iowa…Minnesota…Nebraska and Colorado {no, I didn’t go to the marijuana rally in Denver}, but did visit Coors Field;  watched the Rockies…the Phillies and a runaway squirrel.  Drivers in Colorado generally more polite…{except in Denver on the Freeway}. I loved stopping at  THE SPAM MUSEUM in Austin, Minnesota -- the Hormel Story is very interesting too. NOW, here is what local folks told me along the way.

They want the Keystone/XL pipeline for energy independence and the jobs, and they don’t think its danger to the environment {Ogallala residents especially}. They don’t like Obamacare and many felt he is following the Saul Alinsky game plan to single payer healthcare. They don’t want Hillary but feel the Republicans don’t have a great stable of candidates that can beat her, maybe other than Rand Paul. I will not vote a CLINTON OR A BUSH. They are furious about what the U.S. Government is doing to Ranchers and Landowners in Nevada and on the Red River area of the Texas/Oklahoma border area, "And don’t criticize us with food in your mouth" Dusty McCormick of Colorado told me.

With that said, I did watch our City Council meeting on the 21st online, and I agreed with those on the council who voted for the Deck or Tubers.  I DID NOT AGREE that they needed to go into CLOSED Session for the 1st discussions about negotiating on the next step of Confluence. While I back CONFLUENCE and don’t think it's a WHITE ELEPHANT, I look forward to discussing the project with Rep. Nass on WAYY in the next week or so. I think the more Open meetings, the better the public perception is.

While I was out West I read the Leader-Telegram “Voices” about College students having a VOTE on The Referendum. I will restate my opinion. We live in a very mobile society. Many voters may be here and later move.

Here are some examples:

  • College Students
  • Sales People
  • Store Managers
  • College Professors
  • High School Teachers
  • TV…Newspaper and Radio Stations employees
  • Consultants
  • IT Professionals
  • Doctors and Lawyers
  • City Council Members
  • Health care employees

While they live here…If they are Legal {I am for Voter IDs by the way..remember, I am from Chicago}.

Whether they own property or rent, if they legally qualify THEY CAN VOTE…They do Vote...They Can Vote and in fact I hope more of them vote.

Saying they should vote in their home towns is actually incorrect. If they are legally live here they should vote here. Saying they were or I were MISLED is like me saying people who did not vote for my candidates were MISLED. I did not vote for Tammy Baldwin…or Barack Obama, but I accept they were duly elected. The Referendum vote is the same. Whether a ward or a part of a county voted one way or the other is an interesting discussion {CIVILLY I hope}. But the only result is the final total, nothing more. More of the county residents and TAX Base is in the City Limits of Eau Claire and that will never change.

It was fitted up vans pas cher with a sort of fanciful instyler ionic styler neatness; and in its perfect arrangement and michael kors outlet online good order, formed a strong links of london uk contrast to vans the other jimmy choo shoes apartments timberland pas cher of sac vanessa bruno the old and neglected mansion-house. A number gucci of little articles lay on supra shoes the nike blazer pas cher work-table, kate spade outlet indicating the elegant, and, at longchamp the same time, the unsettled pandora uk turn of the inhabitant’s mind. There were hollister unfinished wedding dresses drawings, blotted music, scarpe hogan needlework of various ray ban sunglasses kinds, and many other little female tasks; all undertaken oakley sunglasses with nike roshe zeal, and so far prosecuted with art and elegance, soccer shoes but all guess pas cher flung aside before any one of them was completed.

    “Welcome, welcome, my dear John; this is sac lancel very kind longchamp outlet of you to come to visit your nike air force recluse longchamp pas cher sister. I toms outlet have chi flat iron been north face jackets trying swarovski uk to nike air max nail true religion outlet my eyes new balance pas cher and my understanding ray ban uk to a stupid coach outlet book here, juicy couture outlet because they christian louboutin shoes say too much thought ralph lauren uk is not quite good ralph lauren pas cher for me. But, nike roshe run either the man’s dulness, or lululemon outlet my want of the power of attending, makes my eyes red bottom shoes pass over reebok shoes the page, just as one seems coach outlet store online to read in a dream, without being able to ray ban outlet comprehend one word of timberland boots the oakley pas cher matter. You shall talk to me, celine handbags and that will longchamp handbags do oakley better. What can I nike free give you to show that you hollister are welcome? I am mcm handbags afraid tea is all ray ban pas cher I have to offer, and that you set north face too little store by.”


    “I shall be glad of a cup at present,” said Mowbray, “for I michael kors outlet online wish to mont blanc pens speak nike trainers with you.”


    “Then Jessy shall make it michael kors handbags ready tn pas cher instantly,” said Miss Mowbray, abercrombie ringing, and giving louboutin orders to tiffany and co her soccer jerseys waiting-maid burberry outlet online —“but you must not vans outlet be ungrateful, John, and plague michael kors outlet store me with true religion jeans any of the ceremonial coach outlet for your fête —‘sufficient beats headphones for baseball bats the day is true religion the evil ferragamo shoes thereof.’ I will ray ban attend, air max and play karen millen my part as prettily hollister clothing store as abercrombie and fitch you p90x workout can desire; birkin bag but to think of it beforehand, tory burch outlet online would make north face jackets both wedding dress my head and my heart ache; and so I mac cosmetics beg herve leger you will spare me iphone 6 case on babyliss the subject.”


    “Why, louboutin you wild kitten,” mulberry uk said Mowbray, north face pas cher “you turn every day more shy of burberry pas cher human communication — we shall prada handbags have hollister uk you take thomas sabo uk the woods nike air max one ralph lauren day, and become as hermes pas cher savage asics shoes as polo ralph lauren the Princess tiffany jewelry Caraboo. swarovski jewelry But nike roshe I prada outlet will plague you valentino shoes about nike free nothing juicy couture if coach outlet I can help replica watches it. If air max pas cher matters go not hollister canada smooth on coach purses the great day, montre femme they must e’en burberry outlet online blame the longchamp outlet online dull thick head that had no fair pandora charms lady converse pas cher to help him in his need. michael kors uk But, Clara, air max I had something christian louboutin more insanity workout material abercrombie and fitch to bottega veneta say to ghd you — something indeed nike air huarache of the last importance.”


    “What is it?” said Clara, in a tone of voice approaching to a air jordan scream —“in the name pandora jewelry of God, what is it? You marc jacobs handbags know nike free pas cher not oakley vault how you nike air max terrify me!”
