Anyone will be better than Tipton, who spends no time at all in Steamboat. You're more likely to see him out in Craig, though he doesn't get there very often, either. He spends most of his time down south where he's from.
I'm hoping Schwartz will pay more attention to us up here.
Ok, thanks for the info.
What about gas stations, though? Hard to believe these companies could afford to build a bunch of them all over the country on their own dime.
Umm, yeah, they probably did. I'm sure they gave huge subsidies to these oil companies to get their refineries going.
It's the chicken and the egg thing. Why would someone buy an electric car if there's nowhere for them to charge it? Now that there are charging stations scattered throughout Colorado, anyone interested in buying one of these (and there are plenty that are cheaper than a Tesla) can do so secure in the knowledge that they'll be able to charge it wherever they go.
I'm sure they built a bunch of gas stations before there were many cars that could use them.
"Baumgardner’s Democratic challenger, Emily Tracy, of Breckenridge, said she had studied Amendment 69 sufficiently to take a position on the question, but hastened to remind her audience that Medicare is also a single-payer health benefit system and “many of us are pretty happy with it.”"
Wait a minute. She had, or she hadn't.
I wish she had the guts just to say "no, while I support the concept and believe every American has a right to healthcare, this implementation is not the way to make that happen." or some such.
Hillary sold him 20% of our uranium reserves? How did she do that? I didn't think you could do something like that unless you were the president.
Exactly, Brian. She's a creature of the system, no doubt about it.
If we were in a noncompetitive state I'd vote for someone else, but I can't let Trump add the presidency of the USA as a feather in his cap.
This guy has brought out a lot of ugliness in America, and the policies he champions will increase that us-against-them, nationalist mindset that has been so destructive throughout history.
I don't want to see what that would do to the country.
Uhh, didn't Al Gore concede shortly after they ordered the recount stopped.
"For the sake of our unity as a people and the strength of our democracy, I offer my concession."
I remember being disappointed that he didn't fight harder.
And notice that Trump doesn't say that "together we'll cure what ails us and make America great again." He says: "I will make America great again."
That combined with his nods to Putin as a strong leader should be sounding alarm bells on the republican side of the aisle that this guy may be a bit too authoritarian for a democracy.
But they've been oddly silent.
