Old Colorado saying.
On the Colorado Ballot this election is Proposition DD, a scheme to legalize sports betting with large taxes going to “Water Projects”.
Discussing this with Sisty (whose opinions I value, not that I agree with her) she brought up GODDAMNDENVERWATERBOARD as spoken on Colorado’s Western Slope. They have been stealing water for over a century.
A junior imitator, the City of Thornton, has bought out over the years the water rights of farmers to the Cache La Poudre River. All those farms were allowed to “dry up” and abandoned.
Thornton’s grand scheme has hit a roadblock. They need to complete a pipeline in Larimer County. The county commissioner have said, NO! They may have an option to build in Weld County. I imagine the Weld Commissioners say, “Not only NO, but Hell NO!
The water wars will continue forever as the Front Range population grows. Pass the popcorn!
As to Prop DD, my vote is No. Too vague, and I don’t trust those (P)regressives currently dominating Colorado politics not to pervert and misuse any new laws.
