Climate change not the cause of weather patterns

Last fall I wrote to you saying that El Nino was reforming in the Pacific and moisture was headed our way. Looks like I was spot on with my prediction. My point is that weather patterns caused by ocean currents, the jet stream and other acts of nature determine whether or not we’ll receive moisture. Any person with a grain of common sense will realize this is always true and should put to rest that man-made climate change causes us the blame for all of our woes. Man-made climate change is an issue being falsely forced upon the public by the progressives to scare people for the purpose of gaining control of our lives for their political purposes.

Opposition to sheriff, commissioners stance on ‘red flag’ bill

I was disappointed to read that Sheriff Lillard and the county commissioners are so opposed to the legislation to take away firearms from people deemed a danger to themselves or others. They say it is a risk to the Second Amendment. It doesn’t seem to me that a person who is threatening to take the life of another or themself is a member of a “well-regulated militia” as the amendment states. “Protecting the Second Amendment at all costs” seems to be a very broad statement that can possibly put people at great risk. Protecting a victim of abuse or a person threatening themself doesn’t seem like a risk to the amendment. I would also like to state that not all liberals live in the Denver area. Some live on the Western Slope, just as conservatives live in both areas.
