Corn and soybeans are recovering
Corn and soybeans farmers are holding their crops off the markets in the face of weak export demand and in hopes that weather scares will give them higher prices in April, May and June. When the cold weather breaks, will farmers start selling in the face of possibly even bigger crops?

Rep. Mike Coffman’s empty tweets
You've got to wonder about the empty suits in Congress. Rep. Mike Coffman (R-CD 6, CO) tweets about Sec. of State Rice being the first black secretary of state and a University of Denver grad. Doesn't he have anything more important to tweet about?
So many politicians just don't know how to use social media, and Coffman's among them.

Consumer Reports hypes Tesla electric car, undermines its credibility
Consumer Reports magazine is a hard left, Gorean Climate Warming Alarmist not-for-profit with a large, well paid, politically correct staff.
It's hyping of the Tesla (TSLA) electric car is preposterous and undermines the magazine's credibility tremendously.

American Cancer Society hypes ObamaCare
The American Cancer Society has released a study that it says shows that young uninsured people are more likely to have late stage cancers than their insured peers are, but the study makes little sense. The news release is basically a public relations gambit designed to convince younger people that they should sign up for the terribly expensive and poorly designed ObamaCare (ACA).

Ken Buck sets himself up for demonization over abortion again
Ken Buck and his supporters and the left are intentionally talking past each other, and I think Buck is losing the argument in Colorado, which is a very anti-personhood state.

Personhood Republicans make it much easier for Obama Democrats to carry Colorado in 2014
Colorado's extremist personhood Republicans, including State Rep. Perry Buck, the wife of Ken Buck, today introduced a punitive and absurd personhood and anti-abortion bill (HB14-1133) that will mark all of the state's Republicans as extremists in the eyes of women and so called independents. In my opinion, the latest personhood bill will be used by ObamaDemocrats to demonize every Republican in the state. It will keep the Democrats in office and could help Andrew Romanoff retire Rep. Mike Coffman in the closely contested 6th Congressional district.

15 questions Republicans are asking gubernatorial candidates
The audience at the North Suburban Republican Forum had about 15 questions last Saturday for the three candidates for the GOP’s nomination to challenge Gov. John Hickenlooper next November. These same questions probably are being asked around the state as the candidates work to visit all 64 counties even though only about 12 counties have most of the votes.

Steve House would not sign a personhood petition; Greg Brophy supports the amendment
Adams County Republican Party Chairman Steve House, a candidate for the party’s gubernatorial nomination, said in an interview Saturday at the North Suburban Republican Forum in North Glenn that while he is pro-life, he would not sign a petition for a personhood amendment to the Colorado Constitution. Personhood amendments, which are designed to negate Roe vs. Wade and outlaw all abortions, would make all fetuses persons who couldn’t be aborted at conception. Similar amendments have lost by huge majorities in previous elections in Colorado.
