    I hear elected officials talk all the time about how much they love “Made in America.” So I’m shocked that Congress hasn’t done anything to promote it, like approving the currency reform bills in the Senate and House. America should be responding when countries cheat at trade by manipulating their currencies. It creates a hidden tax on American manufacturers trying to export, and an uneven playing field for those who compete with imports. The results are layoffs, a rising trade deficit, and closed factories.

    A poll conducted late last year found that more than seven in 10 voters think our election system is “biased in favor of the candidate with the most money.”

    On several occasions in the column, I’ve referred to my rather dull military experience. In the early 1960s, every American male had what was called a “military obligation.” On your 18th birthday, you were expected to register for the draft. And, if you were not considered ineligible, for any number of reasons, you could either enlist or wait to be drafted.

    As a vegetarian, I have to walk a fine line.

    Really, I’m not judging you. But I often find it necessary to establish myself as “not a threat” to meat eaters. I also occasionally bump up against militant vegans.

    Let’s say you suspect a young person may be experiencing a mental-health crisis. You know you want to help … but you may not feel confident or equipped to open the conversation. Perhaps you waiver, thinking, “What if I say the wrong thing?  I could make the situation worse.”

    It is not a well-known fact that the fastest-growing segment of organized crime, as well as the third-largest criminal enterprise in the world, is sex trafficking. And while many believe this is only an international problem that pervades third-world countries, the unfortunate reality is that sex trafficking also occurs here in the United States.

    Stuart Sanderson, Colorado Mining Association’s President, filed a motion for a rehearing of Ballot Initiative #75 (The Colorado Community Rights Amendment). This motion attempts to prevent signature gathering and, if the required number of signatures are gathered, a statewide vote.  Brownstein Hyatt Farber Screck LLC. Is representing Sanderson.

    Monday evening, April 14, will be the first Seder of the Jewish holiday of Passover. I am surprised how few Christians realize that The Last Supper was a Passover Seder.

    In the Gospels The Last Supper is referred to as The Feast of the Unleven Bread, or as we Jews call it, matzot. 

    When I was a youngster in school, Christian kids would want us to explain Passover to them. I would simply say, “Go see The Ten Commandments.”

    The wind energy industry has been a big boost to communities across the country, providing a new income source to farmers and ranchers that host projects, reinvigorating small communities by providing new economic opportunities and funding for fire and police departments, schools, infrastructure, and other public services.

    It’s hard to get your mind wrapped around Russia’s annexation of Crimea and seizure of Ukrainian military bases there. It was — and many Ukrainians say still is — part of a neighboring sovereign country until mid-March.

    And it seemed like Europe had transcended that kind of old-school warmongering.

    No matter how hard lawmakers try to close their eyes, click their heels, and hope for the best, they can’t make highway funding magically appear. But that doesn’t stop them fiddling and flailing as they burn through the Highway Trust Fund.

    President Obama has run out of excuses on the Keystone XL pipeline.

     If you are one who pays any attention to talk shows, either on radio or TV, and either conservative or liberal, you might have noticed a trend for various hosts to ask guests — or to say themselves — “What must the Republicans ?” And, indeed the question can be projected to the election in 2016. 

  • I had a few people thanking me for my column earlier this month about standing up for Brighton City Council’s vote on the oil and gas moratorium.

    Sadly, that praise is probably undeserved, as my column said nothing of the sort.

    At a recent panel discussion in New York City about Obamacare, a woman in the audience, a professor of public health, asked an important question. Why was there so much emphasis from the law’s supporters on the individual — in other words what can the law do for me?

    We must end the scourge of sexual assaults in our military. When young women decide to serve their nation in the armed services, they should never be forced to live under a cloud of intimidation or sexual harassment. This is a challenge the military must confront and overcome.

    I am encouraged by the current push for real tax reform in Washington. From my perspective we need not only a simplified system but one that incentivizes investment, hiring and growth.

    A lot is happening at the Regional Transportation District and with our ambitious FasTracks transit expansion program, and I’m happy and excited to share some of the progress we’re making. Right now, the most relevant news for the residents in my district is the March 20 North Metro Rail Line groundbreaking.
