You obviously don't know much about our forefathers. For example:
"The basis of our political systems is the right of the people to make and to alter their constitutions of government." -Washington
“Each generation has a right to choose for itself the form of government it believes most promotive of its happiness.” -Jefferson
“The People were, in fact, the fountain of all power, and by resorting to them, all difficulties were got over. They could alter constitutions as they pleased.” -Madison
“What I want is to get done what the People would have me do. The problem for me is how to find out what that is exactly.” -Lincoln
It's too bad you associate with wolves. Most of us are people, with compassion for other people. Nobody has ever been eaten or imprisoned by ballot initiative. "Representative" government imprisoned some 110,000 Japanese-Americans in concentration camps during WWII, hundreds of Communists and their friends who wouldn't name them (including some of the best in the entertainment industry) during the McCarthy era, and millions for smoking pot, for 77 years so far.
Pay attention to facts instead of old dead theories written by the wolves eating our future.
IF the TPP were really about "free trade" it could be as short as: "All trade tariffs and duties will be reduced by 10% of the original per year until after 10 years they are zero." We don't really know how long it is because it's secret (even from most of Congress) but NAFTA is about 2000 pages of special industry deals, over-rides of labor and environmental laws, and even the gutting of Article 27 of Mexico's Constitution -which was a main cause of the Zapatista revolution.
It's another example of "government against the people" and I'm surprised that Polis still is considering supporting it -and even the "fast track" railroading of it thru Congress without real debate or any transparency. As moabite says above, it's fascism, which Mussolini said should really be called corporatism.
1. They hope to clear out the homeless by redecorating. And temporarily, as a construction area, it will work. But as you say it hardly fixes homelessness.
2. The City Council and the bureaucracy wants their names on a plaque for big shiny new things.
3. Redecoration is a big distraction from the real problems you cite. The City Council "Chambers" room has been expensively at least 4 times in my 35 yrs in Boulder. Still no improvement in what comes out of it.
The inescapable conclusion is that these sheriffs are very angry that crime and mayhem are decreasing, not to mention court dates, fines, prison populations, etc. Their business is threatened. This could be one reason for the recent apparent increase in violence by police: they have to CAUSE crime, which is their bread and butter.
Waste your money, tin badges. The people have spoken and voted. Ballot initiatives literally rule: unlike laws, the Governor CAN'T veto them! All power to the people and the peaceful.
I agree with you that the DAs are all suppressing justice.
