My latest campaign is keeping e-mail safe for kids


Now that the elections are over, I thought I would send you a completely non-political e-mail that provides something that might actually help you and your family now! It’s a new service to help protect your kids when they send or receive texts and emails from their cell phone. This service is called MouseMail, created by friends of mine at Safe Communications, Inc.

The basic package is available free to the first 100,000 early adopters at: www.FamilySafeHome.com/mousemail.

New GOP Senate leaders make CUT

Dear Editor,

Tea Party movement could end up as Tea Light if they’re not careful

Dear Editor,

If the elusive “tea party” wants more “vetting” they will end up like Republicans and Democrats with Saturday conventions otherwise known as pandering parties. 

The issue as I saw it in the Colorado Senate race was not that Ken Buck’s one vote in Washington would have made much difference regarding sancity of life or the homosexual agenda. The issue was that media forces and financial constituencies did not want him to convince others with his ‘non mainstream’ arguments. 

It wasn’t competitive but my candidacy for governor accomplished things

Let’s be clear: Schroeder was a real patsy

Dear Editor,

Your article in The Statesman recently about Patsy S. (InnerView with Pat Schroeder) begins with the statement that it has been edited for clarity. Too bad it wasn’t edited for fact checks or given a disclaimer that it is a rampant endorsement of liberal, excuse me, “progressive” meanderings. Patsy said she doesn’t know of anyone getting $300K for an article or as an advance on a book besides Scott McInnis. Maybe you can pass on a name to Pat; Hillary Clinton?

Big Brother doesn’t rule

Dear Editor,

I live in Arapahoe County. My county sheriff just phoned me about 60, 61, and 101 using a computerized calling system.

He called to identify himself and to tell me how to vote. I despise his underlying messages, which are:

1.  I am the sheriff.
2.  I carry a gun.
3.  I know where you live.
4.  Vote NO, or else bad things will happen to you.

I thought Election Day was the one day We the People got to tell elected officials what we wanted.

An open letter to candidate Dan Maes: For the sake of the state, please get out of the governor’s race

Oct. 20, 2010

Dear Mr. Maes,

The Western Slope Conservative Alliance represents the largest grassroots effort in the state and we were among the first to acknowledge your campaign and many on our board were among some of your staunchest supporters. We have watched your campaign for Governor from the beginning and have been sorely disappointed with the way your campaign has operated since the primary.

Our concerns can be placed into two categories.

Schweitzberger: Governor’s race continues to amaze

Dear Editor,

I knew I was in the right location when I saw a Tancredo banner perfectly aligned between two American flags. I can’t say it was a “stump speech” because I haven’t heard Tom Tancredo speak in years. Does he not know it’s better to tell voters what they want to hear than what he thinks they need to hear?

It was a crowd of supporters, no television cameras. A bit of a fundraiser but nobody was required to pay an admission fee. I didn’t anyway.

Rep. Steve King should support The Terrific Three

Dear Editor,

State Rep. Steve King, R-Mesa County, wrote a confession to the Grand Junction Sentinel this week.

Having attacked tax relief issues 60, 61, and 101 weeks ago, he rejected many reasons given to oppose it.

He admits credit restrictions were “a result of the current recession, not a cause of it.” Yet he opposed Amendment 61, which foes say will cause another recession by limiting debt.

Help us make the CUT — support 60, 61 and 101

To fellow Taxpayers,

This fall, three initiatives — Proposition 101 and Amendments 60 and 61 will be on the ballot. The Colorado Union of Taxpayers supports these measures and we urge you to do the same. After reading each initiative closely, we believe it is clear to any rational person that these measures will be good for all of Colorado taxpayers and are worthy of support.
