For The Optimists On The Left

It's important to have optimists around and their message of better things ahead is one that must be heard. Fact of the matter is when you have numbers like this it becomes very difficult if not impossible to advance as a country and a society.

A poll out Monday shows that less than half – 43 percent – of those who identify with the Republican Party say they believe humans have evolved over time, plunging from 54 percent four years ago.

What To Do What To Do

Many communities in Colorado fear the evil pot sooo much they just have a difficult time making good decisions. At least Denver did the right thing here.

The Denver City Council made a surprise move Monday, reversing an earlier decision that would have banned smoking marijuana on private property if it was in public view.

Business Is Booming

Drove through Denver on the way to Cheneyland to eat turkey and saw this. I was a bit surprised but shouldn't be probably. Click on the picture to read the writing.
Then today in the Boulder Camera there was this.

Gun deaths have outpaced motor vehicle fatalities in Colorado since 2009, but data from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment indicate the state has passed yet another milestone in death statistics.
For the first time in 2012, suicides by firearm alone surpassed motor vehicle fatalities, with 457 Coloradans dying in fatal car crashes and 532 taking their own lives using guns.

Exceptional numbers in a country with huge societal issues that like most other things will not be discussed in any intelligent way to possibly try to do better.

Gets to be old shit - just saying.
