James writes... Just out of curiosity, what is it that we get with "trolls like you?" James, I assume you were referring to "me" personally, and I WILL answer you with this... because I have nothing to hide behind.

"American Individualist Anarchism" is what you get from me, simply put. However, I personally am far more complex and intellectual in my core beliefs than "the surface definition" which my critics WILL surely herin use against me.

I can tell you this...my inner most thoughts regarding the "human condition" are light years more interesting than the "Republican/Democrat" current day paradigm which this country is "saddled" by today, and I witness on this blog everyday.

just some food for thought... oh the "politicians"...

When a politician views society from the seclusion of his office, he is struck by the spectacle of the inequality that he sees. He deplores the deprivations which are the lot of so many of our brothers, deprivations which appear to be even sadder when contrasted with luxury and wealth. Perhaps the politician should ask himself whether this state of affairs has not been caused by old conquests and lootings, and by more recent legal plunder. Perhaps he should consider this proposition: Since all persons seek well-being and perfection, would not a condition of justice be sufficient to cause the greatest efforts toward progress, and the greatest possible equality that is compatible with individual responsibility? Would not this be in accord with the concept of individual responsibility which God has willed in order that mankind may have the choice between vice and virtue, and the resulting punishment and reward? But the politician never gives this a thought. His mind turns to organizations, combinations, and arrangements — legal or apparently legal. He attempts to remedy the evil by increasing and perpetuating the very thing that caused the evil in the first place: legal plunder. We have seen that justice is a negative concept. Is there even one of these positive legal actions that does not contain the principle of plunder?

This was written in 1850 by Frederic Bastiat He...for sure was on to something!

ENOUGH!

All of you "Statists" and "Lefties" out there are NOT gonna like like this...but here goes.

All this jibber-jabber about "fair-share" and "leveling the playing field", and "who's taking advantage of who" garbage is just that...GARBAGE!

If you (the Statist) or you ( the Moderate) or you (the Leftie) wants to really "make things fair" relative to the "EXTORION" that we, (in my camp) call Fed/State Taxes...get behind this...

1) Totally eliminate the U.S. TAX CODE.

2) Take ALL power away from the IRS and ALL State Income Tax Depts., other than making it/them an "account for deposit" for revenue.

3) Develop a new "TAX CODE" based on a "FLAT-TAX" % for EVERYONE (individuals and all business alike) on all "paid income" (bartering excluded).

4) Other than "bartering" ALL DEDUCTIONS would be gone! NO deductions for ANYTHING!

That's it...simple and fair. After the screaming fads out from the "ones" who make zillions on the backs of the American people and the current EXTORTION-TAX system...ya know the lawyers...CPA's....bean counters....and the list goes on...it would be fair, and "everyone" would be on a level playing field.

The economy would boom overnight...savings would go thru the roof...and the next reall issue to tackle would be a Constitutional Amendment to truly "BALANCE" the Federal/State Budgets. Now...we are getting somewhere!

Actually...there would be no need for the banter that ensued above.

Cheers!

I've been watching this from afar and the view is incredible.

This is what happens when the lefties seek a solution from the "farmers of humans".

There's not enough room in this "septic tank" of "please government...help the poor and unwashed", for this "Anarchist" to jump in...besides...it "stinks"! You experts can work this out. Ha! We need Big Brother government types to solve this problem. Right?

If you are developer (with money of your own) and you don't see the real need (from a market standpoint) for "lower cost" "apts" here in River City...you are a fool. But the "government" getting involved is just wrong.

Cheers!

Nothing "disinfects" like "sunlight".

Politicians are mostly the same...Poly=many Ticks=blood sucking parasites. Local, State and Federal, and NO I don't thank them for their "service". There is ALWAYS a secret agenda. They ONLY want your money.

Thank you Scott and Sonja for the "Sunlight"...brave people like you should watch your backs. Remember this is ALL about "sales tax EXTORTION" .

Cheers!

Tim writes... "Tom, you're hilarious"... Well listen up, what is not hilarious is the fact that these "trolls" really DO live among us. They are everywhere.

This is what they do...over and over again...think it's silly Tim, et al...? "They" (the Dan Shores of the internet world) ALWAYS end up diverting the conversation in an online chat room or article comment section away from the issue at hand, and towards a much different agenda.

Sound familiar?

Poor Ken...he writes a letter, which albeit is mis-thought... has his letter/blog totally highjacked by a "government paid internet troll". How sad.

Governments of the western world are paying people to manipulate discourse on social media, blogs, forums and websites let there be no argument about that. George Soros is probably the one signing the checks for Dan Shores...and that leads to the "imperial palace"...oh...I mean The White House"!

MSNBC talking points...is what ya get with "trolls" like Dan, nothing more.

Cheers!

Boys...listen..."Cull" all of them...Cull the "Urban Bears" X 3! There is NO place for "Urban Bears" in the "human enviro". None! This is not a "petting zoo"...and yes... rhys...those lovable little Bears WILL harm humans...let's wait, do "NO-Thing" (as Paul Harvey would say) and then the ca-ca WILL hit the fan.

Sad...but humans are so smart...they "out-smart" themselves.

Cheers!

Tom Willman 1 week ago on Soda Creek Elementary students: Help keep bears wild

My Goodness!

This "Bear Thing" has NOTHING to do with trash. It in fact has to do with the total mismanagement of the Bear Population by the State of Colorado due to the "inhumane and ignorant mob vote" to outlaw the "Spring Bear Hunt" all those years ago!

Of course you should "bear-proof" your trash!

The bigger and more import matter here is that "without culling" the Bears are NOT saved and certainly NOT wild!

The very "kids" involved in this program...and their "younger" brothers and sisters are at risk of being KILLED, or at the very least injured by the same Bears that they "wish to keep wild" They ARE being taught the WRONG thing. When that unfortunate event(s) happens, and it will...I WILL be here to say...I TOLD YOU SO! "Reinstate the Spring Bear Hunt" NOW...cuz it will take 20+ years to UNDO what has been done. The so-called educators think they are being "altruistic" and "humane" towards the Bears, and nothing could be further from the truth!

As I've written many times before in this venue...NOTHING will happen until somebody is injured or killed, and it's not a matter of "IF" it indeed, is a matter of "WHEN".

Cheers!
