Tom, I think they should abolish the city police department completely. Have an elected "peace officer" Sheriff provide a minimal level of peace keeping across the entire county. Hayden and OC can opt in or out if they like.
BTW, the offices are already highly integrated with ACET and SWAT teams.
The Bernanke-Yellen bubble top is in when the dumb money at these "Hedge" Funds start rechasing the brass ring that burned them in 2008. Hold on to your hats and grab some physical gold before Yellen unleashes hyperinflation through NIRP.
Tom, I would agree with you but the sheriff is too far gone with Boomer the Civil Forfeiture Dog, drug wars, and war on whistleblowers for it to make any difference. The whole thing is rotten to the core, as you know, and it won't change until Janet Yellen finds a way to unleash the hyperinflation through negative interest rates. All these government actors feed at the same trough: Federal Reserve issued notes.
Reminds me of Ben Franklin's famous quip: "It's a police state, if you can keep it."
I'm shocked, shocked to hear this news. How would anyone ever want to continue "public service" for the slave wages he currently receives doing the "public's work"? I heard he was personally plowing the streets and holding up the falling hillside at Howelsen. Could be rumor as I am 1000 miles away.
Wait, I thought the ski area and chamber could only do this kind of stuff with tax dollars. It must be tough keeping your "message" straight when you are bald-faced hypocrites.
Scott, long read but might be worth your time. Commerce clause regarding among the several states was meant to keep states from enacting trade barriers between themselves, ensuring that internal trade (commerce) existed in a common market.
Under Articles of Confederation, which I generally liked, states had tariffs between each other. The Commerce Clause was essentially like the creation of the Common Market in Europe, eliminating tariffs as barriers to trade. The US commerce clause was not meant to set prices or protect against "monopoly" (Google Tom Woods and monopoly and you may see you are wrong about evil monopolies and Robber Barons) but to foster trade.
Federal Railroad Admin: Clearly an Article 17, Section 21 of the CONstitution (all hail paper Caesar!) enumerated power of el federales.
Damian, "The Onion" could not have done a better job imitating a mouth-breathing troglodyte.
Joe, I agree with you, though in this case the government owns the property. At least it is not saying I need certain tires while doing doughnuts in the Shadow Run parking lot. Now, does government need to own the roads? I'm going to Disney World tomorrow and Disney owns its roads (though they were smart enough from a tax and liability stance to set up its own government, plus to keep other governments from attacking); I hear they are clean and safe.
