  1. Colorado law prodding online retailers to collect sales taxes ruled unconstitutional

    What the legislature needs to realize is that businesses & individuals don’t measure taxes by the amount the state receives, they measure it by the total cost which includes overhead. That’s why the business personal property tax is so hated (50% overhead). That’s why the internet sales tax is so hated (what – 53 distinct taxing/reporting entities in the state).

    Good riddance. And to the state legislature, if you want to collect an internet sales tax you’re going to have to move the sales tax system here out of the 1800’s and have a single reporting entity, a single tax rate, and clear criteria as to what is taxable.

  2. You didn’t get mad when we spent over 800 billion (and counting) on said illegal war.

    You didn’t get mad when Bush borrowed more money from foreign sources than the previous 42 Presidents combined.

    You didn’t get mad when over 10 billion dollars in cash just disappeared in Iraq.



    You didn’t get mad when Bush embraced trade and outsourcing policies that shipped 6 million American jobs out of the country.

    You didn’t get mad when they didn’t catch Bin Laden.

    You didn’t get mad when Bush rang up 10 trillion dollars in combined budget and current account deficits.

    You didn’t get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed.

    You didn’t get mad when we let a major US city, New Orleans, drown.

    You didn’t get mad when we gave people who had more money than they could spend, the 1%, over a trillion dollars in tax breaks.

    You didn’t get mad with the worst 8 years of job creations in several decades.

    You didn’t get mad when over 200,000 US Citizens lost their lives because they had no health insurance.

    You didn’t get mad when lack of oversight and regulations from the Bush Administration caused US Citizens to lose 12 trillion dollars in investments, retirement, and home values in the Wall Street crash.

    You finally got mad when a black man was elected President, and decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick. Yes, illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, job losses by the millions, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, and the worst economic disaster since 1929 are all okay with you, but helping fellow Americans who are sick… Oh, Hell No!

    You’re not going to take ME back, without a fight.

    (If posted already during my absence, my apologies…)

  3. Whew. Two nights of temperatures hovering around freezing, but no blossom frost. It looks like I’ll have cherries and peaches this year after all. I’d hate to think how low the temps would have sunk with a Republicon in the White House. My backyard economy’s looking up this morning!  

      1. Fruit trees and vegetable gardens are like roads and sewers, infrastructure with long range return. Anyway, if I don’t have a cobbler every couple of weeks I start getting the shakes.

        I do miss the annual summer swing through Cedaredge and Palisade to restock, though.
