Updated Post - The Colorado Energy Boom

Click here to view the latest updates to the post titled “Welcome to The Colorado Energy Boom”.

Geez! I wonder - with tongue pressed firmly in cheek - why our local paper is not pressuring Mark Udall to reverse the travesty he imposed upon our state, our nation and our world.

I am deeply ashamed to admit that Mark Udall purports to represent me.

I am proud to say I voted against Mark Udall.

Gee - More Alarmist Propaganda From Gee

Quoting Brandon Gee (emphasis mine):
“Colorado’s pine forests — along with those throughout the Rocky Mountain West — are in the grip of an unprecedented mountain pine beetle epidemic that began in about 1996.”

It is my personal opinion that Mr. Gee is the worst excuse for a “journalist” employed by our local rag (which, in itself, is one of the worst propaganda rags in Colorado). Of course, within Mr. Gee’s so-called “profession”, the spreading of climate change propaganda is an institutionally mandated dictate openly originating at the top of the “profession”.

Since I have previously debunked the exact same alarmist nonsense from Mr. Gee, I will primarily refer the readers to this series of reviews of Mr. Gee’s previous climate change propaganda.

In brief, I would remind Mr. Gee that even Alarmist-in-Chief, James Hansen has grudgingly admitted that “1934 is the warmest year in the contiguous states” in the entire 20th and 21st centuries. Hansen, of course, only admitted this after being backed into a corner by irrefutable evidence. I would also remind Mr. Gee that there is considerable evidence to suggest that the mountain pine beetle infestations of that period were far more severe throughout “the Rocky Mountain West” than the “unprecedented” conditions which our local propagandist would have us believe.

In the dangerously vacuous “minds” of those who are among the very most dangerously destructive religious cult members ever known to humanity, current temperatures are utterly “unprecedented” and represent a terrible threat to a “Planet in Peril”. NOTHING could be further from the truth! And, Americans, in rapidly increasing numbers, are coming to understand this irrefutable fact. When we examine the peer reviewed scientific evidence, it seems obvious that there were, just in the last 10,000 years, probably MANY temperature related mountain pine beetle infestations which were FAR more severe than the present (perfectly NORMAL, entirely cyclical) infestation.

I am quite certain that President Obama intends to exploit this unbridled climate change ignorance to bring about his Socialist revolution. Once Obama nationalizes our energy sector (and he will), it will be all over but the crying. I am confident that Hugo Chavez is Obama’s idol and we are about to suffer a fate similar to Venezuela (which, like us, elected their current tyrant).

Affordable Housing vs. Open Space

Mary Brown, without appearing to know she had done so, told our community precisely why we do not have and never will have “affordable housing”. Mary said:
“Since we started doing community surveys in the late 1980s, there have been two items that have been one and two universally: Preservation of open space and affordable housing.”
How many times do I have to say this? We can have open space or we can have affordable housing. We cannot have it both ways! The two values are absolutely, positively, MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE! PERIOD! Pick one and stop pretending to hypocritically give lip service to the other!

Every so-called “solution” offered to date has ONLY served to drive the price of housing even HIGHER. Any idiot could have predicted that outcome. Any additional government meddling in the housing market will also ONLY serve to drive the price of housing higher still.

At BEST, these idiotic “affordable housing” schemes (all across the nation) create the illusion of a tiny little Potemkin Village (to describe it as a REAL Potemkin Village would be to give it WAY too much credit). Those very, very, VERY few foolish enough to buy into these illusions of Potemkin Villages are harmed the most. Meanwhile, the overwhelming majority of the work force then gets to pay even higher prices for their housing (to own OR rent) so that that the “affordable housing” idiots can crow about how wonderful their utopian illusion of a tiny little Potemkin Village is.


If you do-gooders want something good to do, try doing NOTHING! You will do FAR LESS HARM! Better still, BUILD SOME MARKET RATE RENTAL APARTMENTS at whatever distance from Mt. Werner makes it economically feasible to do so.

Updated Housing Bubble Data

Click here to view the updated (nonexistent) housing bubble data for Colorado. This update only reflects data through July of 2008. But, it still shows no real bubble (much less any bubble burst) in Colorado housing.

QUICK! Somebody tell the media (ROFLMFAO!!!).

P.S.) I’m kinda sorta beginning to almost like Rob Douglas. Aside from approving of the general thrust of his latest entry, based on his commentary on the only Dim to lose in Routt County last year, I could almost believe that Rob is secretly reading my local blog. HA! What a delicious irony THAT would be!

As for SP&T approved commentator, Steve Lewis (who is proselytizing in Rob’s latest column)… Well, Steve will always defend the very most egregiously destructive of our Local Lunatic Left (mostly because he is a charter member of that posse). Just click here and you’ll get the picture.
