From 5,000 feet up, it's difficult to make out where Louisiana's coastline used to be. But follow the skeletal remains of decades-old oil canals, and you get an idea. Once, these lanes sliced through thick marshland, clearing a path for pipelines or ships. Now they're surrounded by open water, green borders still visible as the sea swallows up the shore. The canals tell a story about the industry's ubiquity in Louisiana history, but they also signal a grave future: $100 billion of energy infrastructure threatened by rising sea levels and erosion. As the coastline recedes, tangles of pipeline are exposed to corrosive seawater; refineries, tank farms and ports are at risk.

The Republican National Convention apparently gave the Republican nominee the added boost he was looking for. According to a new CNN poll, Donald Trump jumped ahead of Hillary Clinton by 5 to 6 percentage points. According to a four-way match up, Trump is at 44% to Clinton's 39%. Libertarian candidate, Gary Johnson, is holding at 9% and Jill Stein is at 3%. In a two-way match up between Clinton and Trump, the Republican nominee does even better and dominates Clinton by six percentage points.

Jim Hightower: The National Republican Party has published an official policy document showing that the GOP really might be more than a gaggle of serve-the-rich plutocrats and wacky, Trumped-up right-wingers. Just when you thought the party was consuming itself in the know-nothingism of its presidential pretenders and the recalcitrant do-nothingism of its congress critters, out comes a sign of sanity. ... Can all this be true? Yes -- except it's not new. This document is the Republican Party Platform of 1956.

Bernie Sanders: Today, I endorsed Hillary Clinton to be our next president. ... Hillary Clinton released a debt free college plan that we developed together which now includes free tuition at public colleges and universities for working families. This was a major part of our campaign's agenda and a proposal that, if enacted into law, would revolutionize higher education in this country. Secretary Clinton has also publicly committed to massive investments in health care for communities across this country that will increase primary care, including mental health care, dental care, and low-cost prescription drug access for an additional 25 million people. Importantly, she has also endorsed the enactment of a so-called public option to allow everyone in this country to participate in a public insurance program. read more


The best way to make universal healthcare happen is going to be from the bottom up. If you live in Colorado, please vote YES for ColoradoCare, Amendment 69. If you don't live in Colorado, please consider helping to support the campaign. We're going to have a really hard time competing against the big money that's against it.


Scroll down in the link above to see who's funding the campaign against it. I can't think of a better reason to favor single-payer.

Please help support Colorado Care any way you can. Pass it in Colorado and we can get the ball rolling in the rest of the country.
