Why in the same week long time span that we gave kudos to Bill Ritter for vetoing HB07-1072, are we again saying something nice about a Democrat?
Perhaps this cold weather is indeed freezing some of the liberal brain cells, also known as the idiot gene, in some of our states prominent Democrats. Perhaps the apocalypse is upon us. Perhaps the swine I saw outside my TED flight to DIA was not just my imagination again.
I am not sure why all the conservative plays by Democrats, but we appreciate it.
Here it goes, THANK YOU Sen. Lois Tochtrop, D-Thornton, for introducing a measure that would have lifted the state smoking ban in taverns. Not surprisingly the bill was still killed by those Democrats who are not affected by the apocalypse, see 'demons', but it was still good legislation none the less. Many of the 30 some bar owners who testified about the measure are losing their livelihood due to the smoking ban. Also thanks to Sen. Tochtrop for being one of the 3 Democrats to sign onto the recent gun bill.
