Responding to Peace Action West

By nighttwister

Peace Action West responded to Diggs Brown’s response to the a survey about foreign policy that I wrote a diary about last week. Their response is so full of logical fallacies that it would take a month to deconstruct. Most of it is an appeal to authority of a list of dubious foreign… »

By nighttwister

Betsy Markey (D, CO-4) has been working hard lately to convince the voters in Colorado’s 4th Congressional District that she is a fiscal conservative. So hard, in fact, that she claimed to have voted against the TARP funding bill even before she took office (listen here for yourself).

Aislinn Kottwitz Wins!

By nighttwister

Congratulations to Aislinn Kottwitz who defeated Dale Lockwood for the Fort Collins City Council in District 3. This is a huge win for the conservative cause in Fort Collins. Aislinn will certainly have her hands full in dealing with a very anti-liberty, anti-business Council, but I’m certain she’s up to the… »
