Changes to both physical and philosophical landscapes may be required to pull Durango and La Plata County out of the deepening housing crisis some say the area has slipped into over the course of decades. At the Durango Chamber of Commerce Eggs & Issues meeting held virtually Wednesday, a panel of community leaders and housing experts discussed the need to create attainable housing for workers.


The situation in Durango is a microcosm of what is happening nationwide. What we have going on with these democrats in power is worker bee/elitist communism. This article reeks of it.

Here is exactly what I am talking about, quote from the article says it all: "Elizabeth Salkind, executive director of Housing Solutions for the Southwest, advocated for shifts in policy and perspective to find creative solutions to the housing crisis. “Our country’s in love with single-family residential,” said Salkind, who is also a volunteer for Housing Colorado. “... But we cannot as a nation, probably a world, continue to live with that as our only ideal. It’s not realistic. It was like a post-World War II thing that everyone got on board with. But it’s simply not our future for housing.”

Let’s build ugly Soviet-style multi-family “homes” so that everyone can live here. One look at the Denver or Boulder market tells you exactly what that gets you - $4000/month 2 bedroom apartments. Sometimes you don’t get to live where you want to live.

If we didn't have millions of invaders from the south we would be just fine with housing.

The goal is to have evryone live in apartment blocks in cities, take mass transit and if you have to drive, drive electric cars. Electric everything. Not because it eliminates Greenhouse Gas though. By concentrating people in this fashion and only allowing for electricty to provide heat/light and transport, the Power Elite can shut off everything to you in a flick of a switch

Paul Joseph Watson has spoken extensively on England's tower block culture, which is essentially the same thing. One of the core values of the American Dream is to own your own home. I do, and I would never live in an apartment inside an urban sinkhole. There is no power on Earth that will change my mind on that.

Housing crisis? Really, what is being said is that people can't "afford" living in such places. If you believe in economics, let economics sort it out. Sometimes people have to move to make it. Ask those Okies of the thirties how that worked. Let me know when Beverly Hills opens its "affordable housing" complex.

One of the proposals is to take the Fairgrounds, move it to Durango Mesa(formerly known as Ewing Mesa) and turn it's site into a (public)housing development...Durango/Ewing Mesa HAD been under permitting process for 2000 homes, but the City canceled it's residential zoning and turned it into "Openspace" instead. Mayor is from Calif, many of the quoted "Councilpersons/Experts" are also recent arrivals from blue state urban chit-holes. They are now claiming NIMBY is the problem(Single family residential not wanting public housing projects next door) The root cause is BANANA...(Build Absolutely Nothing Anywhere Near Anybody) that shut down suburb development in order to require highdensity housing and mass transit, city centered people and control of them. Social Engineering=Socialist Engineering, "Scientific Socialism". Social Science is NOT an actual Science.

Drive into Breckenridge, Aspen, or Vail. A few miles out from the lodges, you'll see a small town of trailers where the "help" live. I spent some time doing real life educational experience in Cripple Creek, Co. back in the '70s. Ms squirrel was trying to make a living hitching a ride into Crested Butte to sell baked goods ( we weren't married at the time). I was pumping gas and mowing down aspen trees (quakies) to build roads for home development projects down by Fluorescant and Lake George. It truly sucks to be poor in Colorado.

The Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad and the U.S. government are scheduled for trial more than two years after the government first filed its case seeking $25 million in damages for the 416 Fire. U.S. District Judge Robert Blackburn ordered the 10-day jury trial for May 2-13 in a yet-to-be-determined location. It marks the third time the trial has been scheduled since 2020. Blackburn first set the trial for November 2020, but it was postponed until September 2021 amid the coronavirus pandemic.

What’s more, while lack of transparency and accountability has been a chronic problem within the vaccine industry, the obvious hazards associated with vaccines are really being highlighted by the COVID jabs.

Rasmussen Reports recently conducted a nationwide survey with questions on vaccinated immunity and natural immunity after a recommendation by Becker News. “I wonder if you polled Democratic (and R, I) voters, how many would call Natural Immunity a myth?” I asked. “How many would say it is false you can get Natural Immunity from a Prior Infection?” Rasmussen Reports was benevolent enough to ask these timely questions in a survey and release the crosstabs to Becker News before official publication. The results? Fascinating.

NEW YORK  — Calling him a “clown, genius, edgelord, visionary, industrialist, showman,” Time magazine has named Tesla CEO Elon Musk as its Person of the Year for 2021. Musk, who is also the founder and CEO space exploration company SpaceX, recently passed Amazon founder Jeff Bezos as the world’s wealthiest person as the rising price of Tesla pushed his net worth to around $300 billion. He owns about 17% of Tesla’s stock, which sold for almost $1,000 each on Monday.

On a regular day at work, Matt Teague and Forrest Kinney hop into a Durango Police Department patrol vehicle. The car is outfitted with the typical police gear – a dispatch radio, weapons, safety equipment – but also a teddy bear, bottled water and blankets. Teague, a social worker, and Kinney, a police officer, focus on a unique approach to emergency response that combines mental health care with policing. “The goal is treatment, mental health treatment, substance abuse treatment,” Teague said. “Sometimes, it’s as simple as getting assistance through Manna (soup kitchen) or housing assistance.”

A ban on oil and gas leasing on federal land could have dire consequences for New Mexico and the U.S. fossil fuel industry, as such a move was proposed by presidential hopeful and former-Vice President Joe Biden. Biden, who was nominated by the Democratic Party to challenge President Donald Trump in November’s election, previously announced that if elected President he would work to gradually phase out the leasing of federal public land to the oil and gas industry.

Bill and Hillary Clinton are sensing an opportunity to get back into the political fray as the Democrats look poised to be heading into a devastating midterm this fall.

They also believe that the public may have moved on from former President Bill Clinton's scandalous past, as the ratings for FX's Impeachment: American Crime Story - produced by Monica Lewinsky - were surprisingly low, Playbook said.

President Joe Biden was not making a 'human' comparison between opponents of his voter rights push with racists and segregationists in a speech this week, said the White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Friday. Rather he simply meant to compare the actions of those who opposed reform with the likes of George Wallace and other notorious figures. The clean-up came after critics accused Biden of divisive rhetoric, and the president has since seen his initiative collapse as two hold-out Democratic senators said they could not support his plan to change Senate rules in order to pass the legislation.

A county judge in Texas dealt a blow to Governor Greg Abbott's controversial 'Operation Lone Star' after ruling his national guard's apprehension of an illegal immigrant unconstitutional Thursday. Operation Lone Star was created by Abbott amidst a wave of illegal immigrants from Central America crossing the US-Mexico border. It deploys law enforcement in areas human and drug smugglers are known to use. The ruling could see the initiative stifled with attorneys saying that it could open a path for other immigrants to challenge their detention.(Snip)On Thursday, Judge Jan Soifer ruled in favor of Jesus Alberto Guzman Curipoma, an Ecuadorian engineer arrested in September and charged with criminal trespassing.

COVID-19 vaccines allow breakthrough infections. Their duration "appears to be limited." On top of that, wealthy countries caused harm by bidding up vaccine prices to hoard the "limited supply" available last year. These are not criticisms from a purported purveyor of COVID misinformation. They came from the biggest private funder of global health research. Bill Gates, whom the National Institutes of Health called a "superhero" for his eponymous foundation's lavish health spending, frowned on the results of COVID vaccine research and distribution practices in a short Twitter chat Tuesday.
