While Kuhner is good at ‘talking points and buzz words’, never trust anyone who thrusts their clenched fist into the air. It symbolizes the ‘hammer and sickle’. Hammer and sickle is communist shit. 

A law expanding background check requirements on Colorado gun sales has been in effect for about a year, and an Associated Press analysis of state data compiled during that span shows the projected impact was vastly overstated in a key budget report.

The discovery has prompted a prominent Democratic lawmaker to question whether the flawed estimate led to an inaccurate projection of the law’s cost. Republicans seized on the opportunity to resume criticism over a measure that helped lead to the ouster of three Democrats in the state Senate last year.

WESLACO – A journalist in Honduras shed more light into the migration crisis impacting her nation.

Marilyn Mendez, with La Prensa of Honduras, said the United States doesn’t fully understand what is happening in Central America.

Mendez said the much-vaunted U.S. government campaign to dissuade people from migrating to the South Texas border is non existent in her country.

U.S. federal officials said the television, radio and print ads are running through out Central America.

“The public awareness campaign targeting parents so they don’t deal with human smugglers, sponsored by the U.S., does not exist right now. If they had announced this, the press would know about it, I would know about it,” Mendez said.

Mendez said poverty, not crime, is the main factor driving people from Central America to the United States.

The “Waters of the U.S.” proposed rule lets the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulate small ponds, ditches, rainwater flowing through low spots and isolated wet spots – the same as if they were a river or other navigable waterways.

This proposal will be a serious threat to farming and ranching, homebuilding, energy production and other land uses.

Tell the EPA it’s time to ditch the rule!

WASHINGTON, D.C. – “There’s a lot of money involved in feeding our kids at school,” Michelle Obama recently told children at the White House. Just ask Hamdi Ulukaya.

Ulukaya’s company, Chobani Greek yogurt, was the beneficiary of a “very fast” decision from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) in 2013 to use Greek yogurt on a trial basis in four states’ school lunch programs.

Yolanda Vega, who came to the U.S. illegally in search of a better life, doesn’t have a driver’s license, yet six days a week she travels miles from the trailer she shares with her husband and teenage daughter outside Durango to clean homes much larger than her own.

Vega, 32, relies on her husband to drive her to work, using a license he obtained years earlier in New Mexico.

Presently, Colorado law makes it impossible for people like her to obtain a driver’s license, but a law passed in the state legislature in 2013 is meant to change that, starting Aug. 1.

Hearing that she was eligible for a license under that law, Vega was elated.

“It’s important because if you have an accident or something, you would have your license,” she told The Denver Post in an interview translated by her daughter. “I could drive to work.”

But Vega, who came from Chihuahua, Mexico, will not be getting a driver’s license anytime soon. Vega is one of as many as 150,000 people in Colorado illegally who may be seeking a driver’s license under the new law, activists say. However, what those in the immigrant community see as problems with the program have made it difficult for potential applicants to sign up.

Only five locations of the state’s 56 licensing centers will be issuing the cards — and by appointment only. For applicants like Vega, the dearth of offices and the appointment-only system means months to years of waiting and hours-long drives.
