Head On CO results KRISTA: Colorado has officially turned from blue to purple. Republican Cory Gardner beat Senator Mark Udall. Republicans also won races for Secretary of State, Attorney General, and Treasurer and a majority in the state senate. They almost secured the state house and governor's office. Even their ballot initiative against teacher unions succeeded. SUSAN: I'm not so sure. I'd say the split state legislature - R's took back the Senate by the narrowest of margins - one vote. Dems continue to control the House. Bright purple Hickenlooper won. I'd paint a more cautious picture. Coloradans are no-nonsense independents - pragmatists not ideologues.KRISTA: A mix of independent-minded libertarians, conservatives, moderates, and liberals keeps Colorado elections interesting. Thanks to the TABER amendment's limits on tax and spending, the pendulum can only swing so far. Also, Republicans finally modernized their strategies for messaging and turning out votes, making them more competitive than in previous years. SUSAN: Cory Gardner did a fine job of tailoring his message to statewide, bright purple voters as did CD 6 incumbent Mike Coffman. Your party's gubernatorial candidate - Bob Beauprez did a rerun of the same luddite campaign he lost in 2006. Colorado's elections are predictably UNPREDICTABLE!

Head On Impact on 2016 SUSAN: Impacts of the mid-term Republican sweep are unpredictable, largely dependent of the behavior of both parties. Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi need to go away, along with Ted Cruz and Paul Ryan's budget. 2016 depends on whether the Congress is obsessed with themselves or serving the American people.KRISTA: Controlling two chambers means Republicans can actually pass legislation and send it to the president. If the president vetoes reforms to Obamacare, tax law, and entitlement programs, they will become winning issues in the next election. Compromise no longer means Republicans must capitulate, it means the president must hear them out. SUSAN: Both sides have a lot to prove to the American public, starting with the 3-C's: Civility, Compromise, Competence. 2016 is a presidential year - bigger turnout and more activism. And unless R's nominate a moderate, the White House and the Senate will return to Democratic control.KRISTA: It isn't about compromise or competence. We've given Washington so much power over our lives and so much money to pass around to special interests that election cycles have become unending, expensive, high stakes contests for control. Return power to states, cities, and the people themselves and civil elections will follow.

10:57 PM
Head On What should the new Congress do KRISTA: Voters gave Republicans a mandate to lead. They should repeal Obamacare, encourage affordable energy development, cut spending, fix the tax code, reform entitlements, reduce regulations and balance the budget. If the president vetoes these popular, commonsense reforms, it will lead to more Republican gains in 2016. The voters have spoken!SUSAN: Repealing the Affordable Care Act is sure loser. The facts: millions of previously uninsured Americans have signed up. They're paying lower premiums and US healthcare costs are dropping dramatically. That horse has left the barn and is about to win the triple crown. KRISTA: Over half of Americans dislike Obamacare and believe healthcare will worsen under the law, according to new polls. Millions have lost their health insurance and now pay higher premiums and deductibles. Obamacare is headed to the Supreme Court again. If Democrats block reform they're likely to see greater losses in 2016. SUSAN: No Krista, exit polls revealed that voters most concerned about healthcare, support the Affordable Care Act by a margin of 2 to 1. If Republican house and senate majorities play that tired tune instead of addressing budget and tax policy, trade issues and infrastructure, their dominance will be short-lived.

David Bromberg Unsung Treasure DAVID BROMBERG UNSUNG TREASURE chronicles the life of enigmatic musical figure David Bromberg. In 1980, at the height of his career, Bromberg stopped performing — citing burnout from years of recording and touring — and turned to violin-making and collecting. The documentary takes an in-depth look at this groundbreaking, genre-bending guitarist, chronicling his rise to fame, his collaborations with Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jerry Garcia and Neil Young, and his influence on a generation of musicians. This rich and largely untold story unfolds through intimate interviews with Bromberg, archival photographs and footage, music recordings (including never-before-released cuts), and recollections from his contemporaries and family.

NOVA Bigger Than T.rex Almost a century ago, paleontologists found the first tantalizing hints of a monster even bigger than Tyrannosaurus Rex, perhaps the largest predator ever to walk the Earth: spectacular fossil bones from a dinosaur dubbed Spinosaurus. But the fossils were completely destroyed during a World War II Allied bombing raid, leaving only drawings, lots of questions, and a mystery: What was Spinosaurus? Now, the discovery of new bones in a Moroccan cliff face is reopening the investigation into this epic beast. What did it feed on and how? Why did it grow so big? We follow the paleontologists who are reconstructing this terrifying carnivore piece by piece, revealing a 53-foot-long behemoth with a huge dorsal sail, enormous, scimitar-like claws, and massive superjaws, tapered toward the front like a crocodile, hosting an army of teeth. It is a painstaking puzzle, and it is missing many of its pieces. NOVA follows researchers on the hunt for more fossils, tracing ancient history along with the very modern drama of how the bones of the Spinosaurus were discovered, seized, bombed, stolen and smuggled across international borders. Bringing together experts in paleontology, geology, climatology and paleobotany, this NOVA/National Geographic special brings to life the lost world over which Spinosaurus reigned more than 65 million years ago.

Dive! Living Off America's Waste 

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
Every year in America we throw away 96 billion pounds of food. That's 263 million pounds a day. 11 million pounds an hour. 3,000 pounds a second. Inspired by a curiosity about society's careless habit of sending food straight to landfills, the multi award-winning documentary DIVE! follows filmmaker Jeremy Seifert and friends as they dumpster dive in the back alleys and gated garbage receptacles of Los Angeles' supermarkets. In the process, they salvage thousands of dollars worth of good, edible food - resulting in an eye-opening documentary that is equal parts entertainment, guerrilla journalism and call to action.

Xmas Without China Pride and mischief inspire Chinese immigrant Tom Xia to challenge his American neighbors to survive the Christmas season without any Chinese products. The Jones family eagerly accepts this consumer mission-impossible and is drawn into an intercultural exchange with the Xia family. As the Joneses strive to adapt without their Chinese-made appliances and Christmas lights, Tom hopes that they'll begin to appreciate his birthplace. When Tim Jones challenges Tom about his pride in communist China, Tom, struggling to explain China and go beyond the stereotypes, realizes he's on a journey of self-discovery, torn between his competing loyalties to the U.S. and China. XMAS WITHOUT CHINA is a playful yet poignant exploration of America's increasing interdependence with China in a time when, as President Obama says, "the relationship between the United States and China will shape the 21st century."

Colorado Inside Out Time Machine: 1951 The latest trip in the time machine takes host Raj Chohan and panel guests back to the year 1951; Harry S. Truman was President, a first-class stamp cost three cents, unemployment was 3.3 percent and Bobby Thompson of the New York Giants hit a walk off home run in the bottom of the ninth inning to win the National League pennant in the so called, "shot heard ‘round the world."

1951 was also the time of the Korean War, duck and cover drills and big time construction and expansion in the city of Denver. CPT12 goes back in time to understand exactly what was happening in Colorado. With each Time Machine episode, the CIO panel takes on identities from the chosen time period to foray into the past. The 1951 panel is as follows:
  • Raj Chohan - host, as famed radio personality Perry Allen
  • Patricia Calhoun - Ethel Merman, star of stage and screen and 1951 resident of Denver
  • David Kopel - Cecil Koplowitz, City Editor of the Walsenburg World Independent
  • Kevin Flynn - Al Nakkula, reporter with the Rocky Mountain News
  • Dani Newsum - Lois Waddell, a Sociology Professor at the University of Denver
Co-Producer and Sound Designer Larry Patchett went the extra mile to make this trip into the past authentic, using actual time period microphones and using a newsroom setting for the production.

Colorado Inside Out Time Machine Special: Circa 1912 COLORADO INSIDE OUT takes its annual trip in the Time machine, this time going back to 1912. The panel takes a look at the issues of the day, beginning with a look back at the ramifications of the sinking of the Titanic and how unrest in some European countries may effect peace in the world. The conversation strikes a local tone when the panel discusses how tumultuous the Denver City Government is in 1912. A new reform movement has pushed Mayor Robert Speer aside, but the move does not necessarily go well for Denver, or the movement. With a Presidential election coming up in the fall of 1912, the panel also gives their takes on the race between President William Taft, Bull Moose Party Candidate Teddy Roosevelt and Governor Woodrow Wilson. Mrs. Margaret Brown, known to many after her story was portrayed by Hollywood as Molly Brown, is played by Patricia Calhoun. The panel also includes Hobart Drizzlewhit, played by David Kopel, Gertie West, portrayed by Dani Newsum, Police Commissioner George Creel, portrayed by Kevin Flynn and Ernest Bollier, played by Raj Chohan. Complete with effects and music from 1912, this trip into the time machine is sure to be a memorable one.

Colorado Inside Out Time Machine Special: Circa 1973 In this special presentation, the CIO panel takes its annual trip in the time machine! This time, the program goes 1973. The panel tackles the progress of the equal rights amendment, controversy with the Crusade for Justice and Chicano rights movement, court ordered busing for DPS, the energy crisis hitting Coloradans at the pumps and the Watergate scandal. Host Dominic Dezzutti is joined by Patricia Calhoun, David Kopel Dani Newsum and Kevin Flynn. Co-producer and head researcher Larry Patchett went to great lengths to be sure the CIO panel covered as many of the major issues from 1973 as possible. And, as we have found in past explorations in the time machine, many of the issues from 40 years ago still resonate today.
