My Faith Is Restored in My Fellow Coloradoan
So it went down 66 to 34. That's such a drubbing, I doubt the Democrats will try again this decade.
Oh and all the fracing bans in the 4 blue counties passed (Booo!) and the majority of the 11 red counties voted to secede from the state (Booo! but I'm laughing too) and the reform Republican School Board members two counties away survived a ton of money being spent to defeat them. (Yea!!!!!!!!!!!!). In your face, dissolute teacher's union!
UPDATE: I went with early returns regarding seceding from Colorado. Only 6 of the 11 finally voted for it.
Also, hydraulic fracturing, fracing, is safe when done competently, which is 99% of the time. If there was not several thousand feet of absolutely impermeable rock above the gas or oil formation, then the gas and oil would have seeped out completely millions of years ago. Every study conducted has said fracing is safe and there are no cases of groundwater contamination from drilling per se. There was a bad casing case and plenty of tiny spills here and there but that happens with regular drilling which was not banned by the idiot sheeple of the green counties. But the frac fluid is 95% to 98% sand and water and only a little is chemicals, most of which are as dangerous as what you store beneath your sink. This is the truth and the lefty propaganda pieces that act as if fracing was proved to be bad are not. So who, actually are the Luddites here? It's not the supporters of actual energy production through improved technology.
UPDATE 2: The tax hike failed 65-35 and the fracing ban failed in Boulder wannabe, the City and County of Broomfield. So there is some commons sense still between the Platte and the Big Thompson.
