Colorado Governor Hickenlooper vows to pretend to listen to hicks outside Denver/Boulder
Which, shouldn’t that be good enough for these yokel dumbfucks?
Gov. John Hickenlooper on Wednesday vowed to listen more to the concerns of Weld County and other northern communities, but his attempt to offer an olive branch of sorts fell on a great deal of scorched earth.
During a town-hall-style meeting with about 30 local and elected officials at the University of Northern Colorado, Hickenlooper said he would visit the area more often and dedicate more staff to northern Colorado. But faces grew red and some had sharp retorts when the governor outlined his stance on some of the issues cited by Weld County commissioners as reason to secede from the state.
Hickenlooper first gave a short update on flood repair efforts, then talked about his side on “sore spot” issues such as recent laws on gun control and rural renewable energy, and the temporary reprieve he granted to convicted murderer Nathan Dunlap and his stance on Amendment 66.
“I’m not thinking I’m going to change a lot of minds here, but I want to make sure people understand,” he said.
In other words, Hickenlooper is willing to come to Northern Colorado on occasion to lecture us on why he and his Democratic counterparts are correct on the issues. Which of course should comfort we buffoons who aren’t quite so knowledgeable about the effectiveness of rape whistles or peeing on would-be rapists, or who don’t understand that magazines for firearms, even assault rifles that spray bullets at a frightening rate of one per trigger squeeze, are completely disposable.
I voted to pull out and create a new state. I doubt we’ll win, but then again, I doubt the Democrats are going to like what happens to them should we somehow succeed in doing the unthinkable and, like the racist xenophobes we are, enforcing voter laws so that illegals pandered to by the progressive welfare staters aren’t able to swing our elections.
