Smoking declines in Colorado since taxes were raised

States won't ban tobacco, they would lose the settlement money plus the taxes. And then raise other taxes to make up the difference. I quit for 4 years, went from 185 to 258 lbs. Made a choice between being fat or cancer, started again, and lost 40 pounds. My knees no longer bother me, and I'm not struggling to pack all that extra weight around. I live alone, so affect no one Else's health with my smoking. Saying the number of smokers are down because of tax is misleading, some going to a state to buy that is cheaper. Canada tried the high taxes, and the black market made lots of money.  (Sep 27, 2007 | post #165)

Blood thinner Coumadin gets black box warning over fatal ...

Bristol Myers Squibb

Blood thinner Coumadin gets black box warning over fatal ...

I worked in a chemical plant years ago, and was mixing up a chemical that caused bleeding of gums and nose. I went to the chemist and he said this stuff is the same chemical used for rat poison, causes them to bleed to death. An article I just read says the coumadin is basically the same chemical. A good friend now is in hospital with internal bleeding, has been on the stuff for awhile, she is over 80, and cannot have surgery. Makes me wonder just what kind of medicines these drug companies are the public all for the bottom line.  (Sep 27, 2007 | post #31)

Obscenity about Bush forces college paper to make cutbacks

Story on national news now. I am not sure whether the word should have been used, but looking at it this way, how else can you get this President to pay attention to what the citizens are saying? I don't think it applies to the taser incident at all, wouldn't have tied it to that. Polls show Congress and President are at all time lows in approval ratings and Bush says he don't care about polls, and that is very obvious. Bet he got the attention of the President if he watches any news at all.  (Sep 24, 2007 | post #117)

1 killed in rollover on 4-wheeling trail

it was a major story a few months ago, wasn't in Denver, but a driver, female, was texting while driving, and went on wrong side of the road, 4 or 5 killed, all females. Check of phone records showed she was sending text just a few seconds before the wreck.  (Sep 24, 2007 | post #76)

You win that one, latest news says alcohol involved.  (Sep 23, 2007 | post #30)

So we should ask that he be let off the hook? You know that people are going to say what they want, but look at the facts, latest story says alcohol involved, first mistake, second, driving, 3rd, 4 wheeling with that many people in the vehicle. Of course people are going to come down hard on him. Look at how many people have died recently because of stupidity, texting and driving, hit & run, drunk in middle of the road to change a tire and loss of legs for 2 kids, and a Father of one who says, well, couldn't have been much! Christ, when are people going to take responsibility?  (Sep 23, 2007 | post #29)

Was a federal office he ranted about and that's all of us. He involved himself in a story not in colorado. typical boulder thinking. So get off your high horse. Guess you left Mexicans off your list cause you have welcomed a lot of them to the metro area.  (Sep 23, 2007 | post #107)

Hope you don't get jury duty, can't tell a Judge that. (not involved) driver must have had little regard for someones life if they charged him. Have you read about all the lives lost in the news recently? Several killed cause of texting, two guys lose their legs cause they park in the middle of the road drunk. Hit and runs etc. all involving kids who darn well should know better. Cold & heartless? Maybe, but it is senseless to kill others because of stupidity.  (Sep 23, 2007 | post #18)

'Minuteman' Grandmother Draws Criticism

Don't know why they call them vigilantes, all they do is stand and watch and report. And since she is a member it may keep the Mexicans out of town, no big deal there, Let them go to Denver Co. where they will have lots of friends. Course Colorado now has special unit of highway patrol assigned to illegals, the poor babies may not like that either. running out of places to hide.  (Sep 23, 2007 | post #7)

Breaking News on the Jena 6 case!!! Mychal Bell is free!

I have worked those hours, put in an average of 80 hour weeks. So slaves don't have a monopoly on working hard. My Mom was in the fields doing manual labor, worked very hard to support the family. get over it, they are free to do whatever they want, and a lot choose to break the laws, deal drugs and cry because great grandad was a slave.  (Sep 23, 2007 | post #304)
