The socialist Democrat

By Dave Anderson
It was a shock. Canada’s democratic socialist party, The New Democrats (NDP), won a resounding victory this month in Alberta, the country’s most rightwing province where the Progressive Conservatives have ruled for over four decades. The NDP promised to increase corporate taxes, social spending as well as oil and gas royalties.

Obama gets desperate in pushing TPP

By Jim Hightower
Poor Barack Obama. He’s been making more flashy moves than an Olympic ice skater, trying to get Democrats in Congress to cheer his Trans-Pacific Partnership. But instead, they’re roundly booing him. The president is on such thin ice with this ponderous giveaway to global corporate giants that his appeals for support have turned desperate, including this recent claim that TPP, “is the most progressive trade deal in history.”

The golden years just might go better with pot

By Leland Rucker
So you’re one of the 13 percent of Boulderites who are over 55 years of age. It’s been almost a year and a half since marijuana legalization, and you’ve sat on the sidelines watching the experiment unfold. Maybe you tried it in college.

I suggest that you prevent that from happening. Without throwing yourself at the mercy of the temptation, see if you can coax it to stick around for a while longer. Why? In my view, it’s playing a useful role in your life. It’s motivating you to change some things that really do need to be changed.

Tour de drink

Boulder Passport returns with summer drink ideas and deals

By Megan Bucholz
Memorial Day weekend, to many, represents the start of summer. In Boulder and eight other cities, it also means the start of a summer of imbibing all across town with a pocket-sized booklet, or “Passport,” that invites you to explore bars, restaurants, wineries, distilleries and breweries, old and new, downtown and around town.

By Ari LeVaux
The question of how far food should travel between where it is produced and where it is consumed has become a frequent matter of passionate debate. The popular rule of thumb is that the more local the food, the better it is, and we’ve all heard of the many purported benefits that eating locally has on local economies, the environment and even one’s health.

The events were planned as a response to “a cultural shift in consumers who are busier than ever and on-the-go, but who still want to take healthy, locally grown food with them (especially during summer activities),” according to the group’s press release.

Tracking down perfection

Wayne’s Smoke Shack is bold, confident barbecue

By Matt Cortina
You have to appreciate the moxie of a restaurant that is open until it sells out. Especially when you set up shop at the end of an empty parking lot, triangulated by Buffalo Wild Wings, PetSmart and Super Target, in the perpetually under construction, unglamorous superdevelopment of Superior.
