Boulder, CO Experiencing the Effects of a Rocky Mountain HIGH!

Boulder's elected leaders are expected to decide next week whether to draft and vote on a resolution calling for the impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney. For the past few weeks, activists have been showing up at Boulder City Council meetings, carrying signs, handing out "impeach" pins and asking City Council members to take up such a resolution. Similar measures have passed in cities across the country, including Detroit and Telluride.

By activist, I think they mean unemployed hippies.

Liz Robinson, one of the organizers of the effort, said people hoping to see impeachment proceedings have given congressional Democrats — who won a majority in the fall of 2006 — plenty of time to act. “But since they haven't,” she said, “locally elected officials should take up the slack. Whether or not it's the city's business directly, like potholes, I feel this affects all of us. We're the ones who are paying the taxes to support this administration's depredations, especially the war."

Liz also feels that impeachment proceedings would be worth doing even if they only put the last few months of Bush's eight years in office at risk. She said, "We need to send a message that this all matters to us, whether it's last-minute or not."

Is this what geriatric hippies do in retirement?

The group appears to have some support among the City Council, although it's not clear if it has the five votes it would take to get a resolution drafted and subsequently debated. City Councilman Macon Cowles (right) wrote in a memo to his colleagues that he'll likely make a motion at the Feb. 19 meeting asking that a resolution be drafted. "I believe that these citizens deserve a hearing," Cowles wrote to the council.

This isn’t the first time Boulder has weighed in on matters far outside the city's physical boundaries. In 2006, the council approved a resolution calling for the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq, and in 2003, the council passed a resolution opposing the invasion.

Liberals are a good example of what inbreeding does.

They are always on the wrong side of issues. It’s like a disease.

Deputy Mayor Crystal Gray (left), who helped draft the 2006 resolution, said Boulder has a tradition of debating big-picture issues. "I'm a believer that the council should be responsive at the level of local government to issues that the residents raise, just like the Iraq war resolution," she said.

Crystal, perhaps after you geniuses impeach Bush and Cheney you can eliminate hunger in the world. Or better yet, stop global warming by holding your breath. Think of the hot air that will be eliminated.

Thank God that there is at least one sane member. City Councilman Ken Wilson (right) said he's not on board. During a recent retreat, the City Council agreed to priorities ranging from fixing structural problems in the budget to doing better land-use planning. That doesn't leave much time for issues over which the city doesn't have direct jurisdiction, he said. "We did not identify national issues as a priority for work by council and staff. We are already seeing scheduling problems trying to address our priorities and the immediate needs of the city," he said. "Hours spent discussing national issues will reduce the amount of time we can spend on city issues."

Not only that, Ken, you aren’t elected to worry about national issues.

And Liz, in case you forgot your civics lessons from so, so long ago, Article 1, Section 3 of the United States Constitution says, "THE SENATE shall have the SOLE POWER to try all impeachments. When sitting for that purpose, they shall be on oath or affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no person shall be convicted without the concurrence of two thirds of the members present." (Emphasis mine)

Once again we have liberals that think they are more important than they are. Why else would a bunch of pompous government officials waste time and Government money for something which they have no authority?

There have to be other issues of importance to the citizens of Boulder that are more relevant to their city, and are actually within their jurisdiction. Or, has the "recreational" brain-fry damage of the 1960s taken its toll?

Or, maybe, it is that they are trapped out there in the thin air (Boulder’s elevation is 5,344 ft above sea lever). Air does get thinner at higher altitudes.

They must feel trapped like cornered rats. They have the mountains on one side of them and reality on all other sides. And since this city council can’t seem to grasp reality they have no place to go but into the higher elevations where the air is even thinner.

As a result, they must be experiencing the effects of oxygen deprivation. How else can you have a city where Ward Churchill, an anti-Semitic, anti-American professor is considered a hero while a president and vice president who free two nations from dictators and create democratic societies should be impeached?

Thank God they’re so open-minded. So open-minded, that is, that their gray matter is falling out.

You've got that right. These Commies would sell out our country in a Moscow second. Only the uproar from around the USA stopped it. Remember we have Mayor shaun mcGrath who takes bribes and shut downa free press here on the public channel 54> asstant mayor Gray who was just last week firedfrom her long time county job for not showing up....A TV channel caught her. Ken wilson is a pervert who wonder around peering in people windows at night. Macob Cowles became a multi millionaire by suing oil companies.

ME i'M JUST YOUR AVERAGE spook who moved here the same time Soldier of Fortune magazine came to Boulder and local talk show host provactuer.
