Feminism and Hillary Clinton’s run for president (3 letters)

Re: “Hillary Clinton’s everyday feminism,” July 5 Lisa Wirthman column.

Lisa Wirthman’s column on Hillary Clinton’s everyday feminism seems to suggest that Clinton could run a winning campaign in Colorado on women’s issues. I would refer Wirthman back to the 2014 campaign that Sen. Mark Udall ran against Cory Gardner. Udall ran numerous campaign ads on women and birth control to the exclusion of other issues. It failed.

Feminist issues are far down the list. Female (and male) voters are worried about the economy, the debt, opportunities for their kids — and for me, the appearance of America as being weak in foreign policy.

I will grant that Hillary Clinton talks a good game, but talk is cheap. Much easier to accept millions in donations and speaking fees for her foundation from countries with lousy records on women’s rights.

KUDO'S ELLYN HILLIARD, Chair Boulder Country Republicans
Letter to The Boulder Camera, printed Thursday, July 16:
 

GOP

Party offers more common sense approach

As a former Democrat, I keep in touch with all my liberal friends, though I have switched parties to GOP. I saw the writing on the wall in 2008 when “common sense” seemed to be thrown out the window.

I couldn’t believe that the Boulder County commissioners defended renting open space land to GMO farmers, or granted prairie dogs rights over property tax- paying homeowners. The final straw came when our local Democratic state representatives supported Big Pharma over alternative medicine with Amy-Care, naturopathic licensure, mandatory vaccines and opposition of health freedom petitions. But now, the rural road tax, municipalization and finally the multiple lane closure for bikes has pushed many of my good progressive buddies over the edge.

This might be a good time for a changing of the guard at the Boulder City Council level. Any candidate running on a common sense agenda has a good possibility of squeezing the crazies off the stage. I would also like to invite Boulderites to check out the Boulder County Republican Party at the annual Lincoln Dinner on Aug. 22 at Vance Airport in Longmont.

You actually might find some friendly neighbors that speak an inclusive language, understand fiscal responsibility, and are hard working, proud Americans who believe in conscious capitalism as the only moral form of economic freedom. Give us a try. We really aren’t as scary as Moveon.org has successfully painted us. We believe in you, not central planners. bocogop.org

EPA: Fracking Doesn’t Cause “Widespread, Systemic” Water Pollution

By Karen Crummy

Fractivists have worked hard to burn images of flaming water faucets and massive drinking water contamination into Americans’ minds to show “the dangers of fracking.”

But last week, an EPA report exposed these scare tactics for what they are: pure myth.

After four years of research and analysis, the EPA’s long-awaited report on fracking and water contamination concluded that there are zero signs of “widespread, systemic” drinking water pollution from hydraulic fracturing.

That’s right—the EPA and the Obama administration have found that fracking is safe. This finding proves existing regulations to prevent water contamination are effective. Additionally, it shoots a gaping hole into anti-fracking groups’ case against hydraulic fracturing.

For years, fractivists have promoted the burning tap water scene from Gasland—a 2010 film about the supposed dangers of oil and gas development—as evidence that fracking causes water contamination. They continue to do this even though the COGCC, Colorado’s oil and gas regulatory agency, found that the flammable water was not a result of fracking. The EPA’s ruling is the final nail in the coffin of Gasland’s credibility.

The EPA report proves that anti-fracking groups rely on fear rather than fact. Fractivists don’t care to conduct tests or analyze the data. Rather, they choose to believe that fracking isn’t safe and will say and do anything to scare you into siding with them. That’s not science—that’s a hoax.

Did You See This?

This week the House approved myamendment to ensure gun restoration rights.

Since 1992, the Justice Department has been prevented from processing any application for the restoration of gun rights.

America is a land of second chances.One mistake should not define your future. A law-abiding, 45-year-old dad who made one mistake at 18 should have the choice of how best to protect his family or to take his kids hunting. He should have the chance to make a petition to restore his constitutional right to bear arms. This solution is long overdue.

See what others are saying:

"A 2nd Amendment Defender in Congress Just Helped Advance a Major Step to Restoring Lost Gun Rights." - Independent Journal Review.

"Colorado Rep. Ken Buck, a staunch defender of the Second Amendment." - NRA-ILA.


One mistake made when you are young should not permanently define your life; you should be able to earn a second chance to exercise your Second Amendment rights.

If you agree with me that the SecondAmendment is vital to the health of our nation andthe protection of our families, donate today!


Your help is critical to strengtheningour SecondAmendment rights!

Thank you,



P.S. Donate $25, $50, or $100 today to keep us fighting for your SecondAmendment rights.

PATRIOTIC STATEMENTS & SPEECHES

 

John Quincy Adams served as our nation’s 6th president.  President Adams gave an address wherein he compared the two “most joyous and most venerated” holidays celebrated each year in America…..

 

“Why is it that, next to the birthday of the Savior of the world, you’re most joyous and venerated festival returns on July 4th?  Is it not that, in the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior?  That it forms a leading event in the progress of the Gospel dispensation?  Is it not that the Declaration of Independence first organized the social compact on the foundation of the Redeemer’s mission upon earth?  That it laid the cornerstone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity?”

 John Quincy Adams, Independence Day Speech, July 4, 1837

 

“To those who cite the First Amendment as reason for excluding God from more and more of our institutions everyday; I say: The First Amendment of the Constitution was not written to protect the people of this country from religious values; it was written to protect religious values from government tyranny.”

   President Ronald Reagan

 

“Now more than ever the people are responsible for the character of their Congress.  If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness, and corruption.  If it be intelligent, brave, and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislature…If the next centennial does not find us a great nation…it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces.”

 James A. Garfield (1831-1881), US President, Minister of the Gospel

 

“In questions of power; let no more be heard of confidence in man but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.”

 Thomas Jefferson

 

“They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

Benjamin Franklin

 

“Government big enough to supply everything you need is big enough to take everything you have…The course of history shows that as a government grows, liberty decreases.”

 Thomas Jefferson

 

In 1787, George Mason of Virginia asked rhetorically, while arguing for the adoption of the Bill of Rights.  “Who is the militia?”  Mason’s answer:  “They are the whole people.”

 George Mason, framer of the Constitution and author of the Virginia Bill of Rights
