Real tax reform means everyone pays something

By Paul Danish

Obama’s proposals emphasize income redistribution. He wants to raise taxes on the wealthy and give tax breaks to the middle class and to the working poor, the last through expanding eligibility for the earned income tax credit, among other things..

The dark horses of 2016

By Paul Danish

Polls and pundits have been making all sorts of assumptions about the 2016 cycle: That Hillary Clinton is an oddson bet to be the Democrat if she chooses to run, that if Elizabeth Warren were the candidate, she would run like a latter-day George...

My persons of the year

By Paul Danish

The Person of the Year award — called the Man of the Year award when it was begun in 1927 (Charles Lindberg was the first recipient) — was originally intended to recognize the person who “for better or for worse ... has done the most to influence the events of the year.

GMOs: Boulder County’s November surprise

By Paul Danish

Every Democrat on the ballot in Boulder County won in Boulder County. Mark Udall and John Hickenlooper each got more than two-thirds of the votes cast in their races in Boulder County. Jared Polis got more than three-fourths. Almost all of the proposals involving tax increases in Boulder County and Boulder County cities passed.

Driving to ban drilling

By Paul Danish

But the hypocrisy is beside the point. The real point is that even people who want to ban oil and gas drilling can’t live without it.

Dad’s insecticides and Proposition 105

By Paul Danish

Chlordane, Heptachlor, Aldrin and Dieldrin are four of the nastiest insecticides ever produced. All four have been linked to a variety of cancers and other diseases, and all four have either been banned outright or severely restricted in their use by most countries for at least 20 years.

Oklahoma isn’t the first to see radicalist beheadings

By Paul Danish

The Death Angels were a racist murder cult, which had been spawned by followers of the Black Muslim movement. They would ultimately kill at least 14 people during a reign of terror known as the Zebra murders.

Danish Plan

Think globally and frack locally

By Paul Danish

Starting in 1973, after a 400 percent spike in gasoline prices in the wake of the Yom Kippur War, U.S. politicians started calling for “energy independence” — by which they meant ramping up domestic oil production to the point where the country was no longer dependent on imported oil.

Danish Plan

Obama’s clueless view of ISIL

By Paul Danish

Now let’s make two things clear: ISIL is not “Islamic.” No religion condones the killing of innocents. And the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim. And ISIL is certainly not a state.

Letting go of my hump day

By Jefferson Dodge

After nearly two years at the weekly Clear Creek Courant, a year at the Summit Daily News, 12 years at the CU faculty/staff newspaper Silver & Gold Record and four and half years at Boulder Weekly, I’m taking a job as communications coordinator for Colorado State University.

Some Colorado politicians still do not get that whole open records thing

By Jefferson Dodge

When my dear friend Bonnie Lloyd gave opening remarks at a private ceremony April 30 before she and her partner, Pattea Carpenter, obtained one of the first civil-union licenses issued by Boulder County, she thanked us.

Papers, please: An attempt to infiltrate a closed meeting of a Boulder County board

CU staff retire, double-dip, get paid, oh my!

By Jefferson Dodge

Yet another CU administrator has been “double-dipping,” we at Boulder Weekly have learned. And it’s not that big of deal. A bigger deal is how these things have been communicated. Much has been made lately about University of Colorado Boulder administrators, their tuition-funded salary increases and their ability to retire and get rehired — “double-dipping” by receiving their pension and a salary.

Save journalism education at CU

By Jefferson Dodge

I've noticed that CU officials are fond of saying that "discontinuance is an unfortunate term" when they talk about the closure of the J-School. (And even though a committee is still considering that closure, I think it's a done deal - they just have to study it for a few months to preserve the deliberative spirit of the university.

End municipalization secrecy

By Joel Dyer

That said, I continue to be disappointed by the way that the City of Boulder conducts itself on this important issue — in particular its disregard for transparency, which seems to indicate that City Council and staff don’t think the people of Boulder can be trusted to understand complicated facts and make informed decisions.

Affordable housing vs. mass transit

The rise of the green-talking climate change deniers

By Joel Dyer

We hear it all the time: “climate denier.” We spit the term like a swear word at the Koch brothers or countless Republican politicians. It’s a label we attach to oil and gas industry executives, coal barons and those who run our power generation plants. But what does it really mean to be a climate denier?

The Polis/Hickenlooper fracking compromise; thanks, but no thanks

By Joel Dyer

Apparently Congressman Jared Polis wants to reenact it at the state capital by way of Governor John Hickenlooper’s proposed special legislative session that could come as soon as June 8 and will aim to keep local control over oil and gas development off the ballot this fall.

Why people who are unwilling to disclose their business relationships should not serve on city council

By Joel Dyer

I can’t believe that I’m having to write this in 2014. I can’t believe that there are actually elected members of Boulder City Council who are still acting like the idea of full disclosure of business relationships is somehow an inappropriate expectation.

City’s cleanup of teahouse site actually deserves kudos

It surprised me as well

By Joel Dyer

I spend most of my life analyzing what local governments are doing poorly. But last week it struck me that in my two decades of reporting on contaminated properties in Boulder County, this was the first time that a cleanup plan didn’t make fast and cheap its primary priorities.
