    So let’s look over this list:

    SB 184, SB 199, SB 6, HB 1156: Why do peaceful people need permission slips from government to engage in peaceful activities involving private property? (Note on HB 1156: The practice is junk science and stupid, but shouldn’t be illegal.)
    HB 1003, SB 5, HB 1256, HB 1181: Why is that state involved in a local education issues?
    HB 1187: Unconstitutional in part. A state statute cannot change the state constitution. Asking voters for a permanent de-Brucing of Referendum C, which was a msitake in the first place, is also a bad idea.
    HB 1179, SB 178: Actually a good bill. Pass it.
    HB 1021, SB 142: More regulatory nonsense.
    HB 1162: Allows government to revoke the government permission slip to drive on the public roads that the person has paid for with his hard-earned money stolen from him by the government because he did not pay further tribute to the government for not following the arbitrary rules for said driving in the first place, as enforced by a government official with an inherent conflict of interest, placed in the subjective judgement of a government official also in an obvious conflict of interest. Sounds ludicrous and like racketeering, doesn’t it?
    HB 1104: Why are paralympic medals taxable in the first place for ANYONE?
    HB 1004: Why is this a state issue? Should not colleges and universities make that decision themselves?
    SB 7: repeals an unconstitutional emasure. Pass it.
    HB 1242: The problem isn’t lack of funds, but lack of competency in CODT administration to administer and maintain the roads in a proper manner. Kill the bill and overhaul CDOT.
    HB 1081: Kill it. They don’t have residency here, then they don’t get the benefit of in-state tuition here. Doesn’t matter if it’s athletes or illegal aliens trespassers.
