He doesn’t want us little people to have guns, soda, affordable power, or good paying coal mining jobs. Bloomberg’s latest work from his “Bloomberg Philanthropies” is a Leni Riefenstahl-worthy piece of propaganda titled From the Ashes and was previewed recently inREAD MORE

    Working with Xcel Energy, the state’s largest monopoly utility, is worse than working with the State of Colorado because at least there is way to hold the state accountable through elected officials.
