The entire conference has had overtones of bigotry with attacks on men, corporations, capitalism and America. The unbalance continued with gender bashing celebrating victimization of women and Gays. The gender bashed was men and the culture bashed, heterosexuals For what reason pray tell??
Leftist politics kept the entire conference off balance with insulting token conservative presentations and embarrassing feminism at every turn. It was the usual man hating conference on world affairs. They continued to bash the US military, the United states government and finally the Supreme court. But there was much praise for China. Swell. Young clueless entrepreneurship was also praised, but American business bashed.
The promotion of drug use was in full swing and the entire concept of addiction was scuttled. Pushing pot on the conference was in full swing, while the University was heartily attacked for its handling of 4/20 pot celebration.
The element of spirituality was non-existent reduced to junk science and feelings. All religions were roundly attacked through out the conference while new atheism was pushed. Did I say This conference was an embarrassment and a low point for the University of Colorado.
In attendance were the usual suspects: senior citizens, retired leftists, leftists, and more leftists.. CU student attendance was at a low ebb because quite frankly there wasn’t much that interested 17 to 22 year olds. There never is. It is an old fart conference. This conference is out of touch with reality.

Jann Scott’s Journal is the story and life of Boulder Icon and talk host Jann Scott. He has been in print, on radio and on TV in Boulder since 1989. Some consider him the voice of Boulder’s soul.
The Colorado state Legislature is all cranked up this week over gun control. What ever laws they pass won’t change a thing. Unless they move AR-19s, AK 47s and all military type weapon into a special permit category nothing will change. That special permit category is reserved for collectors of military weapons.
Semi- auto handguns of course are a giant problem. All of the Glocks andf Berettas put out as much fire power as an assault weapon. Twenty years ago I had a Denver police officer tell me on my radio show. “We are out gunned on the street. You have criminals walking around with with semi auto Glock 9 millimeter”
And of course crazy people like James Holmes and Klebolt and Harris have readily gotten their hands on military weapons. What are we going to do about them.
Here are a few solutions:
1. Pass a law that anyone who purchases a hand gun or rifle must go through a gun safety glass with every purchase. Make this mandatory in Colorado.
2. Open a public shooting range in Boulder with a shoot master where these classes are given.
The above two will teach safety first and respect for fire arms.
Now on the issue of guns on the CU campus. I thinks women should be allowed to carry guns on campus but not men. That will end sex assault and see a few cases of men with their balls shot off. but it’s a nice message.
If Boulder wasn’t the hippie drug capitol of the world before, it certainly is now. And we are the laughing stock of the nation. Besides decriminalizing pot possession Boulder has open drug sales to anyone with cash.
As I predicted two years ago, teen drug abuse would sky rocket as a result and that is exactly what has happened. Why because drugs are addictive and law makers are stupid.
You would think that there would be a 100% tax on pot to pay for an new teen rehab center to stem the mayhem caused by drugs.
well that’s it from our happy little bubble here in the Rockies
Jann Scotts Journal: Gamers film makers drug dealers and gun manufacturers are on my SHIT list this Christmas0
I have been talking about these people on Radio and TV since the late 1980′s . For a while it was just christian preachers and a few brave mental health workers who were sounding the alarm. Now since Sandy Hook everybody is talking about it.
When you fill young men’s heads with bull shit, it will influence them into bad behavior.
Klebolt and Harris were obsessed with the video game Doom. The game took hold of their minds and turned them into the first school mass murderers.
James Holmes was obsessed with violent Batman movies and video games. In his isolation he went mad and shot scores of people in an Aurora movie theater.
I blame the video game manufacturers for preying on our children. We need to go after them as harshly as we go after the gun manufacturers. They are greedy monsters. All of the violent film makers are the same kind of trash. And we need to go after the film industry too. I am. It is a disgrace what they have done to our country.
Boulder of course is incredibly stupid. We legalized pot here and the first thing that happened is two monsters from CU attacked an entire class room by poisoning brownies with potent drugs, sending kids and teacher to the hospital. I hope they go to the penitentiary.
This is a city which embraces developers of violent video games. It is a city which embraces illegal Hacking. It is a city which embraces illegal drug use. It is a city which embraces violence.
How did we ever get to a place in America where we tolerated movie makers who pump out so many violent films that our children have gone mad and have started to commit mass murders. The Gamers, the gun manufacturers, the dope dealers, the film makers and oh lets not forget Boulder’s Giant porn industry that no one wants to talk about.
New Frontier Media has hundreds of employees. It recruits young girls in Hollywood. They promise them stardom and big money. The girls become addicted to narcotics, work in sleazy hotels, are abused and sold. All of their exploitation is orchestrated right here in Boulder where the movies are made and then distributed. Yes we are the center of sexual slavery too. And we call it a business.
Shame on the whole city for allowing this to go on.
From the heart of the monster
Boulder is not immune to crazy acts of violence. It only thinks it is the way Sandy Hook did. Boulder has had a history of extreme acts of violence by very insane people.
In the 1970s A Boulder high girl was raped , shot and murdered as she washed new car at Buckingham park. A 10 year old girl was brutally murdered in her home . She lived a block from JonBenet Ramsey. The crime occurred 25 years before.
In the 1960′s a janitor ravaged and brutally murdered a female CU music student. The crime scene was so bloody and cruel it cannot be discussed here.
In the 1980′s Michael Bell shot 5 people at a gun range in Boulder He killed two. Sid Wells was brutally murdered with a shot gun blast to the head in a dope dealing operation gone bad. Involved was Robert Redford and his daughter. It was a celebrated case.
in the 1990s A Boulder county student held his girl friend Hostage with an AR 15 assault rifle at CSU . He fired rounds all day. A police sniper finally shot and killed him at 200 yards away.
In the 1990s 6 year old JonBenet Ramsey was brutally murdered in Americas most sensational child murder. In the same decade a 19 year old CU female student was abducted off Canyon Blvd and raped by an Asian gang. she was then thrown to the side of the road and left for dead. CU student Susanah chase was brutally raped and murdered at 19th and Spruce as she walked home from a night of Pizza and beer in downtown Boulder.
Also in the 1990′s Amanda McDonald was crushed by her boyfriends SUV as she drunkenly car surfed up flagstaff Mt. Boulder also experienced 3 days of alcohol riots in the 90s where scores of police officers were injured. For two years Boulder endured couch fires, firemen being targeted by Molotov cocktails
In 2010 a man with Aspergers went off at Boulder Stove and Flooring and killed everybody in the store. He shot his employer, his wife and himself in a mass shooting.
In 2011 a gunman shot and killed a star football player on the hill.
In 2012 a drunk young petite college girl wondered into the wrong house on the hill and was shot by a panicked psychiatrist aided by his hysterical wife.
1n 2012 Two students attacked their entire CU class by purposely loading brownies with a potent Marijuana strain sending 5 of them to the hospital and making the entire class sick. Some brush this of as a prank. but it was still an attack on a classroom.
Oh it goes on in Boulder
The level of violence has steadily increased in this city as it has all across the world.
Gun sales are up at the thriving gun store.
Driven by movies, video games, young men are driven to incredible acts of violence and mass shootings all over the world.

Cardinal overpowers punchless Buffaloes
“Stanford got after us with their defense and their offense made plays when they needed to,” CU coach Jon Embree said. “We just weren’t good all the way around . . . I don’t think something happened (as a turning point).”
Embree had contemplated a quarterback change this week, replacing junior starter Jordan Webb with sophomore Nick Hirschman after the latter gave the Buffs’ offense some second-half life in the 70-14 loss at Oregon.
A lukewarm week of practice by Hirschman kept Webb in the starting role Saturday. Hirschman replaced Webb for one first-half series, then opened the second half with the Buffs trailing 35-0 – 21 points better than last week’s score at intermission.
Embree said Webb was “clearly the better guy” in practice, then deferred further comment until his weekly press conference on Tuesday.
Through almost three quarters, neither Webb nor Hirschman was effective. So sophomore Connor Woodgot the call with 1:23 left in the third quarter — and CU trailing 45-0. Wood promptly connected with tight end Nick Kasa for a 14-yard completion – the Buffs’ longest play of the game to that point. He had fourth-quarter completions of 22 yards to Tony Jones and a 20-yarder to Kasa, which moved CU across midfield for the first time all afternoon.
Immediately thereafter, Wood was sacked, fumbled and lost nearly all of that yardage. On the bright side, the Buffs recovered and avoided another 50-plus point loss. That’s the kind of homecoming afternoon it had been for CU.
Webb finished with four of 10 passes completed for 19 yards (one interception). Hirschman went four of six for 12 yards, and Wood completed four of seven throws for 66 yards.
Through three quarters, the Buffs had managed three first downs and 40 yards in total offense. They left Folsom Field with 76 yards in total offense on 44 plays – an average of 1.7 per play – and minus-21 yards rushing. The Cardinal has allowed minus-34 yards rushing in its past three games.
Embree said his team’s offensive struggles resulted from a “perfect storm” brewed by one of the nation’s best defenses: “When we had people open we had protection issues and when we did have protection we couldn’t get people open. It was one of those things, but protection was a problem (seven sacks among his three QBs).
“You know, there is a reason why they are No. 2 in the country against the run and why they are what they are as a defense. They are a very good defense and they showed it today.”
Meanwhile, Stanford also juggled its quarterbacks, as expected using Josh Nunes first, then replacing him with Kevin Hogan. Nunes went three-of-five for 23 yards, while Hogan – touted as more of an option threat – was mildly surprising, completing 18-of-23 passes for 184 yards and two TDs. Hogan also ran seven times for 48 yards before he was replaced in the fourth quarter by Brent Nottingham, who eventually was spelled by Robbie Picazo.
In what nearly has become a weekly occurrence for CU in Pac-12 play, this game had been decided by halftime. The Buffs trailed the Cardinal 35-0 at intermission, and their offensive stats showed why: 20 yards in total offense, one of eight third-down conversions and two first downs (one by penalty).
Stanford, meanwhile, rolled up 13 first downs and 249 yards in first-half offense, 115 rushing and 134 through the air. The Cardinal finished 436 yards in total offense – 230 passing, 206 rushing.
Both teams used two quarterbacks each before intermission, but the halftime stats offered a clear picture of which pair was most effective.
Webb opened for CU and promptly went three-and-out – and that turned out to be a harmless series. On the Buffs’ next possession, facing third-and-six, he was intercepted by free safety Ed Reynolds, who ran untouched for 52 yards and Stanford’s first touchdown.
Hirschman entered for CU’s next series, was the recipient of a first down on a fourth-down Cardinal holding penalty but couldn’t advance the Buffs in any other manner. Webb reentered on the Buffs’ next possession and played for the rest of the first half.
CU’s defense was standing up to Stanford for almost the entire first quarter and might have provided a turning point. But freshman corner Yuri Wright dropped a sure interception on the Cardinal’s side of the field.
The Buffs forced a punt on that series, but on the first play thereafter, Kasa bobbled a Webb pass and the ball was picked out of the air by inside linebacker A.J. Tarpley. Three plays later, Cardinal tailback Stepfan Taylor scored on a 26-yard run and the skids had been greased.
Stanford’s other first-half TDs came courtesy of a 1-yard Remound Wright run, a 1-yard pass from Hogan to Zach Ertz and a 2-yard plunge by Taylor. Jordan Williamson kicked five PATs and the Cardinal had its 35 first-half points.
At the end of three quarters, Stanford had opened its lead to 45-0 on a 31-yard field goal by Williamson and a 19-yard pass from Hogan to tight end Levine Toilolo. With 9:52 to play, Williamson added a 35-yard field goal to end the Cardinal’s stroll through Folsom at 48-0.
BUFF BITS: Senior linebacker Jon Major suffered a hyperextended elbow in practice last week and did not play Saturday . . . . Junior nosetackle Nate Bonsu sprained an ankle in practice and wasn’t expected to play . . . . In what was termed a precautionary measure, freshman nosetackle Justin Solis was taken from the field on a gurney after suffering an apparent neck injury early in the second half. He was said to have movement in his extremities when he was carted off. Results of an MRI later were negative . . . . Saturday’s paid attendance was 44,138.
