Eric Morris 1 day, 10 hours ago on Gary Suiter interested in becoming Steamboat Springs' next city manager

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.


Eric Morris 1 week ago on Steamboat Springs enjoying surge of television exposure this winter season

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.


Eric Morris 1 week ago on Timing of new Emerald Park access still at the mercy of the railroad

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.


Eric Morris 1 week, 1 day ago on New winter tire legislation clears initial hurdle

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.


Eric Morris 1 week, 3 days ago on City, county threatened with Bantle lawsuit

How about clawbacks from the perpetrators, including eliminating pension benefits? Of course not, that would make too much sense.


Eric Morris 1 week, 5 days ago on Speaker warns of Chinese military threat

Being Chicken Little still pays: the Krauts are coming, the Russians are coming, Castro is coming, the Viet Cong are coming, Saddam Hussein is coming, the Moslems are coming, the Persians are coming, the North Koreans are coming, the Chinese are coming ...

But it is only our sparse and broken down military saving us


Eric Morris 1 week, 6 days ago on Speaker warns of Chinese military threat

This progressive (ha!) would not support the baby sleeping in his arms being conscripted by a new LBJ to have to fight for the Spratlys.
