Patricia Calhoun says on Dec. 26th that if there were someway to stop the campaign's being all about what my dad used to say, "that all mighty dollar," she would be all for it. Well good news Patricia there is a Green Party that is growing and they believe that there candidates should not take funding from Corporations. Penfield Tate III! Said there weren't enough Democrats turning out to vote in Colorado. I think that is true, but there is a reason; the reason is that at a national level both parties were doing many of the same things. Obama & both senators signed the NDAA, they both seem to be for the Keystone XL, fracking, they haven't really come out against cleared hostages being released from Guantanamo AFTER 13 years, longer than the Nazi camps, the drones, continued war, immigration policies to help those southern Americans, and other issues. It isn't what they say, but what they have done. I am so glad to see Udall stand up now for those innocent people tortured. Surely the US should be concerned about those kidnapped and tortured all over the world like the German, the father of a British family, the Australian, and many from all over the continent of Asia now in Guantanamo and Were tortured in lack sites with so much secrecy. Thank you Udall for standing now to tell the Senate and the public of the tortured and murdered by the CIA. I haven't seen any other Democrat senators do this, the right thing. I hope he and other senators reguire accountability the same way anyone would be put on trial for kidnapping, torture and murder in the US. I see Germany does have a law suit started and I'm not sure if it is the individual or the country. I do believe at least ine of the father's of an Asian you g man tried to bring a law suit. They should continue to release both the cleared hostages held in Guantanamo and the total information or memos to the public. How can a government be for and by the people if they are not allowed to know what is going on. There was a time when we had to say the calvary could not shoot Native Americans, Southerners can not lynch African Americans, Service men could not shoot whole villages of people in the Mei Li massacre and today we need to say it is not open season to imprison, drone, torture, bomb or anything else without charges and a fair unbiased trial, even then we need a civilization that is not so sedistic that they torture and in any way can keep it secret. I thought one of the soeakers, David Kobel, who likes to spread a negitive comments without particularly giving detailed reasons why. An example of this is how he speaks about the mayor of Denver. I almost thought for the first time he wasn't going to spread a bunch of demanizing when he suggested there were some real challenges in investing in the Denver Colisium, but then he added a negitve statement about the Denver mayor. Maybe there is good reason, but I think it is a poor professional presentation to not have reasons and details to back up the statements made about a professional.

Protests
Posted: December 6, 2014 by Tom Graham
Program: Colorado Inside Out
We were disappointed to hear Patty's comment on Friday Dec.5, that the Jefferson County students had a reason to demonstrate. Students were told that they would be "favorably looked upon" if they participated in the street demonstrations. The ostensible reason at that time was to support the teachers' sickouts. Those had been arranged by the teachers' union, which hired an organizer with money donated for that purpose from the State union. 44-48 union workers were sent from out-of-state to help. The reason given by the JCEA was a protest against changing the curricula. There never had been any change proposed or discussed. Board member Julie Williams had stated that there should be more positive content in history lessons. The disruptions had been planned a year in advance in order to start a recall to get back union control of the District for compensation reasons. Regarding curriculum changes, revisionist history dictated by the College Board has little information about WW II, George Washington, etc., but emphasizes the bad aspects of our history. We feel that there should be a balance with history of some of our heroes and aspects the great founding and protection against evils provided by the nation. Curriculum changes demanded by College Board are large with the hate-America message. Informed students want this.
Misrepresentation of Colorado Latino Forum
Posted: December 3, 2014 by Lisa Calderon
Program: Colorado Inside Out
I am the Co-Chair of the Colorado Latino Forum Denver Chapter and we are requesting a meeting with the producers of Colorado InsideOut and management of Colorado Public Television 12 about the misrepresentation of our Sept. 24th Public Safety forum. The fact that no one from your show even attended our forum, yet spoke as if they had first hand knowledge of what transpired by holding a "Post Game" show on September 26th titled "Colorado Latino Forum discusses Denver's Department of Safety" without even one Latino at the table displays a serious lapse in journalist integrity and cultural insensitivity. The lack of Latino representation on your show is another issue of contention we seek to address. In the future, if you want to know our position, ask us directly, including reading our recently issued public safety recommendation report: http://www.denverpost.com/news/ci_27058917/colorado-latino-group-blasts-denvers-criminal-justice-system. We look forward to your response.
