LP027: Times-Call refuses to run an editorial, 2 papers say vote NO to fracking ban, and election predictions

On Episode 27 of Longmont Politics, Chris talked about the Times Call refusing to run his “Longmont’s Liberal/Progressive Thugocracy” editorial, and made some comments in general about the newspaper/media industry.  Then it was onto Ballot Question 300 (the ban on fracking) and how it’s main speaker is now saying that if the ban (and cost of lawsuits or private property concerns) gets too expensive, we can just repeal it in a special election!  Chris read the editorial by four councilmembers asking voters to vote NO on 300, and then played audio of Longmont City Council Mayor Pro Tem Gabe Santos speaking to council – as a private citizen – also imploring voters to vote NO on 300, citing the excellent Denver Post editorial requesting the same.

Chris then passed along rumors on the campaign trail relating to 300, and thoughts on the St. Vrain Valley School District mill levy 3A and how they are illegally placing yard signs all over the city.  It was then on to observations around the city, including the shortage of Obama yard signs, and the possible outcome of the various races, including State House, Congressional, and Presidential races. And yes, some predictions were made.

LP025: Presidential debate, Longmont Candidate forum and an OHOFOL sounding ROAR

On Episode 25 of Longmont Politics, Chris gave his impressions of the U.S. Presidential Debate, as well as the Longmont Debate & Forum.  The main event was the debate between Congressional District 4 candidates Cory Gardner and Brandon Shaffer.  Their debate brought up the issue of NISP (Northern Integrated Supply Project), and how Mr. Shaffer would not answer the question of if he supported it.

Next was Longmont Ballot Question 300, which is to ban fracking.  A new group called Main Street Longmont has put out mailers and a TV ad, as well as their website NoOn300.com.  On the other side, Our Health Our Future Our Longmont (OHOFOL – pronounced AWFUL) has a goal of raising $45,000 and has so far raised less than $600.  But at least they have some great prizes for your non-tax deductible contribution.

Chris also made some off-the-cuff remarks about rumors of people thinking of running for mayor of Longmont in response to Dennis Coombs lackluster job, and sets the record straight on VoteLongmont!

On Episode 24 of Longmont Politics, Chris talked about the libelous comments of former Longmont City Councilmember Sean McCoy (Twitter: @seanpmccoy) and suggesting Chris was a “homegrown terrorist”.  Then it was on to Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper and his visit to Longmont involving fracking and the harassment he received and the near-riot by Our Health, Our Future, Our Longmont (OHOFOL).

LP023: Anti-fracking ballot issue and lawsuits

On Episode 23 of Longmont Politics, Chris responded to a response to his “Brandon Shaffer’s Akin Moment” Times-Call guest opinion article, where the original Denver Post writer backs up exactly what Chris said.  Then it was on to Longmont City Councilmembers speaking out AGAINST the fracking ban that will be on the ballot, City of Longmont Ballot Question 300, or as it should be called “The Longmont Lawsuit Invitation Act“.  Erie took a different course, instead deciding on an agreement (Memorandum of Understanding) instead of regulations stricter than the state – or worse, a voter induced fracking ban.

Finally, I highlighted some wise words by Percy Conarroe and Paul Danish in reference to fracking and lawsuits.

LP022: Brandon Shaffer’s rape rant and Hickenlooper targets Longmont

On Episode 22 of Longmont Politics we reminded listeners of the several missteps, mistakes, and voting record of State Senator Brandon Shaffer, especially when he had his own Todd Akin moment when he compared his plight to a rape victim (“it’s a little bit like blaming the woman or saying to a woman she deserved it“).

Then it was on to an impromptu rant about Hispanic/Latino voters and why they should never vote for or accept the patronizing attitude and pandering of Democrats/Liberal/Progressives.  Finally, we talked about Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper supporting the COGCC and their lawsuit against Longmont’s new oil regulations.

LP021: Fracking, Chicken, RTD, and solar scams

On Episode 21 of Longmont Politics we talked about the fracking ban gathering enough signatures to make it to the ballot – where it will lose – the Chick-Fil-A backlash on the leftists and radicals and what was really behind it, FasTracks/RTD get an earful from Longmont and Louisville City Councils, and the Abound and Solyndra failures and the real world financial consequences hit locally.

LP020: Mexifornia and airport haters gone crazy

On Episode 20 of Longmont Politics we talked about a recent trip to California (aka Mexifornia), the anti-airport group (of 1) Quiet Skies going off the rails and losing all grips on reality and decorum, and citizens gone ballistic at council and how Mayor Dennis Coombs needs to handle them.  We also talked about another ballot issue to pay for the lawsuits that will come from a fracking ban ballot issue, and yet another way for Sarah Levison to shake down Longmont citizens to squeeze more taxes out of them.
