January 6, 2022 is important for two reasons. First of all, it is the Christian celebration of Epiphany that celebrates the Magi’s arrival from the East to honor the baby, Jesus. January 6, 2022, is also the first anniversary of the “insurrection” at the U.S. Capitol, which the mainstream media attributes to the massive Trump rally held in Washington D.C. Kim highlights several questions each of us must ask: 1) How is it that the most powerful country on the face of the earth cannot keep a couple of hundred people, from fly-over country USA, from entering the U.S. Capitol? 2) Since when have Trump supporters shown up at an event dressed in black with gas masks and with milk to thwart the effects of tear gas?
3) Isn’t the Capitol the people’s house? 4) Has the mainstream media’s coverage of the story been accurate and honest? 5) Why are individuals still in jail a year later and have not been charged with the crime of insurrection? 6) What happened to Due Process? 7) If Speaker Pelosi, who is in charge of Capitol security, cannot keep the U.S. Capitol safe, how can we trust her to keep the American people safe from threats from China and Russia? 8) Why were Republican Congressmen Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Jim Banks (R-Indiana) kicked off Pelosi’s January 6th committee?
Kim also notes that PBIs in Australia threaten to deport nine-time Australian Open Winner Novak Djokovic from Australia and not allow Djokovic to pursue his 10th Australian Open tennis title because Djokovic’s medical exemption does not meet Australian bureaucrats criteria.

Pam Long, former Army Medical Services Corps Captain and West Point Grad, introduces her recent Op-Ed as the Best and Worst of Colorado Politics in 2021.
Pam’s well-researched piece clarifies the chaos and confusion (intended?) of Colorado politics.
How does a regulated three-hole sink improve your dining experience? Susan Kochevar, entrepreneur and owner of 88 Drive-In Theatre, explains that it doesn’t. But the regulation for a three-hole sink empowers PBIs to harass, fine, and increase costs for everyday, hard-working Coloradans. And these regulations authorize PBIs to pick winners and losers. Susan explains that we must extricate ourselves from rules’ perceived “safety”. The free market will address infractions of sub-standard products or services. The free market will determine which businesses are “essential” and which are not.
