TC Line calls Monday, January 17, 2022 – Longmont Times-Call


state bird

It’s time for Colorado lawmakers to change the official state bird from the lark sparrow, which is only found in Colorado on the eastern third of the state for three months a year, to the more ubiquitous frisbee. .

Right to vote

Unfortunately, I think it’s pretty clear that the Democrats don’t have the votes to pass their suffrage legislation and they have to go through another election and they have to win votes in the Senate and in bedroom. I see no other way for President Biden to succeed. If the Democrats lose more votes in Congress, they are doomed and so is the country.

The fee is a tax

The Polis gas royalty is nothing more than a pure and simple tax.


On the filibuster period: If it’s meant to prevent the “tyranny of the majority,” why did McConnell and his majority overrule it to confirm three Supreme Court justices who would never have garnered 60 votes? Maybe the caller should take a civics lesson.

I’m the gentleman who called (about the filibuster) yesterday. I know very well how the filibuster is supposed to work. Are you telling me that Mitch McConnell didn’t appoint three Supreme Court justices and then change the rules right away? … We are fully aware of how civic education works. … The Senate is supposed to function as you describe it. That’s just not the case with Republicans in power.


The rules of the Senate are unique. I challenge you to find other government agencies that have similar rules. … As it stands, they deliberately keep children poor, they deliberately prevent minorities from voting, they deliberately allow one party to appoint Supreme Court justices and not others, and the list goes on.

Meals on Wheels

I wanted to shout out and say a big thank you to Longmont Meals on Wheels. I used this service last year, and they are just wonderful, with great food, great service, wonderful freebies, and thoughtful cards. Just wanted to thank you for providing such great service to us and the community. You work hard and I wanted to say a big thank you. Thanks again, Longmont Meals on Wheels. Keep up the good work.
