Month in Review: Condensing the News of 104th North (Dec. 17)




The Supreme Court of the United States allowed Trump’s travel ban to take effect; “the

third edition placed varying levels of restrictions on eight countries: Chad, Iran, Libya,

North Korea, Syria, Venezuela, Somalia and Yemen.” Lyft, a national ride-sharing platform,

introduced Ski Rack Mode in Colorado, to enable locals to travel sans vehicle concerns.

Take that, UberEATS. Weld County Republican, Lori Saine, was arrested at Denver

International Airport while packing heat [read: while carrying a firearm]. The Representative

is being investigated for introducing a firearm into a transportation facility, charges

pending. The GOP Tax Bill (a misnomer), has been signed by the President, representing

a major blow to the American middle class and an enrichment of the already rich. Trump

joked to friends at Mar-A-Lago, “You all just got a lot richer.” Congress failed to reauthorize

CHIP, though it critically provides medical coverage for children and pregnant women

who are just above the Medicaid earnings cutoff; a stopgap relief funding measure passed

in Colorado to extend CHIP for the short term. Colorado Gives Day netted 2,309 nonprofits

$36.1 million via 153,000, according to the Denver Post. Shout out to everyone that opened

that wallet and said, you know what, let’s care a little bit more today. A Colorado baker who

refused to bake a same-sex wedding cake back in 2012 has a case open at the U.S. Supreme

Court, threatening “to allow religious beliefs to become a valid reason to discriminate

against any class of people”. A similar case in Oregon netted $135,000 for the victims. Climate

Change is still a hoax according to many, like billionaire media mogul Rupert Murdoch

whose L.A. mansion burned down in California’s climate change fueled infernos. A

green VW was lost in a ditch somewhere in Erie, which led to endless laughs and made

us want to watch Dude, Where’s My Car? The car was located at a tow yard in Longmont.

2017 ended with 2 lone White male shooters, one injuring 5 and killing 1 officer in Douglas

County, CO. 2018 and one killing his family in New Jersey. A federal judge preemtively disallowed

Trump from endingDACA. #DREAMon
