Hundreds gather to show CSU support, protest hate group

While it was never really made clear why Westboro supporters picked Fort Collins, they announced they would gather at the heart of campus at 4 p.m. Saturday, prompting CSU supporters to stage their own demonstration and wave signs saying things like, "Congrats grads" and "Oh the places you'll go."


And that, boys and girls, is how you handle phrednecks!

Immigration Activists Crash Boehner/Cantor/Coffman Fundraiser

Outside a fundraiser headlined by House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) for Rep. Mike Coffman (R-CO) today, local leaders staged a rally to protest the fact that these three House Republicans are key obstacles standing in the way of immigration reform that would keep Colorado immigrant families together. It has been 322 days since the Senate passed a bipartisan immigration bill, but Speaker Boehner and House Republicans have refused to take up that bill or an immigration reform plan of their own.

As a longtime voter in Congressional District 6, Im disappointed in the lack of leadership from Mike Coffman and Republicans in charge of the House. They talk and talk about immigration reform at the same time that they are actively blocking a vote on legislation that would help thousands of Colorado families, said Rebecca Torres, Executive board member and SEIU Local 105 member. We wont forget their hypocrisy when we go to the polls this November.

Representatives like Mike Coffman, who come from diverse districts where many would benefit from this legislation have the obligation to push their party to make reform happen. Today, local leaders made clear to voters in CD-6 that Mike Coffman may have said he supports reform, but he has refused to act and is actively blocking the passage of immigration reform.

Pelosi is wrong.

Or maybe she's just being too polite. Nancy Pelosi just said that Republicans are in denial when it comes to the realities associated with unemployment insurance. They aren't in denial, they are in the thrall of avarice. They have placed their personal ambitions above the needs of those they pretend to serve; that's not denial, it's malfeasance.

My fuddyduddyness is showing.

There's just something about the almost-beard . . . it's kinda like the guy got stuck somewhere in between "Hey, Mom, I hit puberty!" and "Sorry, the DTs make it too dangerous to hold a razor." That goes for Blitzer, too.

Cut me some slack, I'm in my dotage.
