House approves lowering tuition for Colorado illegal immigrant students, bill goes to governor
DENVER – A bill allowing lower tuition rates for illegal immigrant students received final approval from state House lawmakers Friday.
The bill passed 40-21 and will now proceed to Gov. John Hickenlooper, who is expected to sign the bill. Three Republicans joined with all the Democratic lawmakers to approve the bill.
Hickenlooper tweeted, “Undocumented kids will now have a fair and equitable way to pursue a higher education in CO. Well done.”
The bill allows students who graduate from Colorado high schools to attend college at the in-state rate regardless of their immigration status.

I am very serious in saying this; some people in Colorado have lost their minds.
I guess that’s what happens when you become too politically correct, are afraid of offending those that need to be offended and allow the Libtards to take over your state and some local governments.
Veterans are losing the battle for earned education benefits and Veterans Fear Losing Benefits If Debt Crisis Isn’t Resolved, all the while Colorado wants to make getting an education easy for students who graduate from Colorado high schools to attend college at the in-state rate regardless of their immigration status.
The Men and Women of our U.S. military, people that have served this nation, have placed their lives on the line for this nation, are now worried about their education, an education that was EARNED, paid for with blood, guts and other assorted body parts and the people of Colorado want to give educational benefits to people that are in this nation ILLEGALLY … just because?
There is SO MUCH wrong with that.
Then there’s all of the brouhaha about guns and anti-gun legislation in Colorado, you can read several Colorado gun stories here: Colorado Gun Initiatives.
And if that’s not enough, there’s this:
Colo. Dem lawmaker: No veterans should have high-capacity mags because ‘some’ are mentally ill
During Friday’s marathon gun control hearing in the Colorado Senate, Republican Sen. Kent Lambert offered an amendment to exempt active military members, veterans and their families from the gun magazine ban.
Enter Sen. Mary Hodge, a disgraceful Dem who urged fellow lawmakers to oppose the exemption because “some of them come back with significant mental health problems.”

My dear readers, I submit to you that I am not slamming every person in Colorado, but in MY opinion, much like California, something has gone terribly wrong in Colorado and the citizens OF Colorado have allowed to transpire. Liberals run the state and that, in and of itself, is more than an adequate explanation of the maladies Colorado faces.
When Libtards take control you can count on anti-gun legislation, a huge increase in the welfare rolls, food stamps, welfare programs in general and a seriously socialistic government.
This is what happens when places like California become totally unbearable, so much so that even the Libtards make a mass exodus to other states and then try to turn those once great states into the failed social experiment which has already been tried and has failed miserably.
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
Well folks, that is exactly what the Libtards are doing; they take their insanity to other states and seek to bring those states to their knees. Once that happens they then seek another state to ruin.
That makes me think of a herd of locusts, lay waste to the land, destroy everything they touch and then look for fresh lands to destroy.
I don’t know if Colorado is too far gone to save, it’s not my home and I truly have no dog in that fight, not one I can affect, but there is a group of these Libtard Locusts that has sworn to bring their brand of destruction to Texas as they *turn Texas Blue* by the year 2016.
I can’t do one thing about Colorado but I can be quite influential here in Texas, and to those Libtard Locusts that seek to destroy Texas I say this; OVER MY DEAD BODY!
