The Louisville, Colorado City Council is facing harsh criticism after its recent proposal to ban the construction of new gas stations and auto service stations. Though council members say the ban is an effort to combat climate change, one local Republican spokesperson called it an abuse of power. If enacted, the ban would leave the 21,000 residents of Louisville with only six gas stations. A seventh would be permitted under the ordinance only if it were part of a large retail center. Charlie Danaher, the Republican spokesperson in Boulder County, Colorado, said on "Fox & Friends First" Thursday that the

The long term strategic plan of most major petro-electric energy companies is to turn such gas/convenience locations into a primary point for major"supercharger" neighborhood nodes.

Welcome to the People's Republic of Colorado. Thanks to all the Californians and stoners who migrated here to escape the hot mess that they made in California, Colorado is now adopting all the stupid ideas that made California the disaster it is today - homeless encampments, bring your own bag to the grocery store, no gas stations, "free" lunches for all students regardless of need, abortion on demand, magic mushrooms, assault weapons ban, restricting landlord rights and so on.

What next from these fanatics? No one in Louisville can have a gas powered lawn mower, a gas stove, a propane tank? Congratulations. You will have just lowered the world's annual average temperature by .0000000000000001 degrees, but by golly, you have done your part.

I would contact Buc-ee's HQ and lobby for immediate construction of one of their rest stops. (no less than 120 gas pumps in a row) .And Buc-ee's has great brisket and pulled pork sandwiches!

I wonder how much $$ the existing gas station owners paid the town council members, or whether the council members themselves own the gas stations. Look for gas in that town to go up considerably since they will be limiting competition.

Louisville is part of the Denver/Boulder axis of transplanted liberals that has screwed up Colorado during the last two decades. As long as they’re only screwing up their own lives, let them have at it.

The African country of Tanzania reported its first-ever outbreak of Marburg disease, which has so far resulted in eight total cases and five deaths.

In a statement issued earlier this week, the World Health Organization has said an additional 161 people — all considered “contacts” of those sickened — were being monitored for symptoms. “The efforts by Tanzania’s health authorities to establish the cause of the disease is a clear

At least 23 people died as a "destructive" tornado and strong thunderstorms swept across Mississippi late Friday, leaving a trail of damage for more than 100 miles, local and federal authorities said.

The agency issued a series of tornado warnings in counties throughout the state. "Many in the MS Delta need your prayer and God's protection tonight," Gov. Tate Reeves said on Twitter.

Youra, who was struggling with depression and the loss of a family member, was horrified by what he learned about melting ice and rising extreme weather.

A US contractor was killed on Thursday in Syria after a suspected Iranian-affiliated drone struck a facility housing US personnel in northeast Syria, the Pentagon said in a statement Thursday. Five US service members and an additional US contractor were wounded in the strike. “The intelligence community assess the UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) to be of Iranian origin,” according to the statement. In response, President Joe Biden authorized a precision airstrike “in eastern Syria against facilities used by groups affiliated with Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC),” Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin said in the statement.

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- The Minnesota House was moving Thursday toward strengthening the state's protections for children and their families who come for gender-affirming care by making Minnesota a “trans refuge state,” bucking a national backlash against transgender rights. Democratic Gov. Tim Walz signed an executive order two weeks ago to protect the rights of people from Minnesota and other states to receive gender-affirming health care in the state. The bill on which the House was slated to begin debate Thursday night covers much of the same ground, but supporters said a statute would provide stronger, more permanent protections. Passage

"Reparations is a paradigm for understanding harm and repair as it relates to people who suffered a human rights injustice because of government action," Holder wrote.

The Biden administration will approve new California rules to cut tailpipe pollution and phase out sales of diesel-burning trucks, according to three people briefed on the plans, a move that could jump-start the nation’s transition to electric-powered trucks and help communities harmed by diesel pollution. The Environmental Protection Agency intends to grant California “waivers” to enforce environmental rules that are significantly tougher than federal requirements and that state regulators have already approved, said these individuals, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the announcement was not yet public.

Ford Motor Company says its electric vehicle (EV) unit, “Ford Model e,” is losing billions of dollars, and should be viewed as a startup company. Model e has lost $3 billion before taxes over the last two years, and is expected to lose another $3 billion this year as the company invests in the new technology, according to a report by Associated Press. In 2021, Ford’s Model e unit had pretax losses of $900 million. And in 2022, that number was $2.1 billion. Ford reportedly believes Model e will be profitable before taxes by late 2026, with an eight percent pretax profit margin.

Hollywood, specifically the film industry, is going through a legitimate, serious, and potentially fatal phase. No one likes the movies anymore. The key to a healthy industry—audience goodwill—is evaporating quickly. Sure, there have been some recent hits. Avatar: The Way of Water just became the second-highest worldwide grosser (not counting for inflation) in history. The last three or four Marvel movies have made money. But let’s not kid ourselves. Avatar 2, just like Avatar 1, has had no cultural impact whatsoever. I know of one person who saw it, and when asked his opinion, he replied with a shrug. My guess, and this is just a guess,

Despite mounting evidence to the contrary, Biden maintains that he "knows nothing, nothing" about son Hunter Biden's business deals.

He repeated his denial even after the release of financial transfer reports from his own administration showing millions transferred from China.
