Colorados’s Libertarian tax evader crusader, Doug Bruce, heads off for jail

Denver American Civil Liberties Union lawyer failed to keep Libertarian tax cheat and slum lord, Doug Bruce, from deservedly heading into jail for 6 months for his tax evasion. Doug Bruce is the Libertarian big time ideologue now famous for authoring the TABOR Amendment legislation, which has helped demolish the quality of public education in this state among the many other negative consequences of this backward looking and reactionary bill. 30454

Doug Bruce files fake state tax return, gets busted.

one of the inconsistencies was on his Federal Tax he posted more money given to "charities" than he took in income. Even counting the RepubliCan't and TeaTard definition of "charity" to include buying guns for the MinuteMurder Militias, organizing Astroturf Roots Parties, and then taking it all off their income tax thereby forcing HONEST people to subsidize their political pleasures... Glenn Beck, for instance, "donating" at taxpayer expense a painting that looked like he rented a chimp to do it, for AT LEAST $3400 off his own taxes and a matching $3400 off the taxes of one of his Demented Disciples, for the U.S.O. to provide services which he and his Fellow ChickenHawks advocated cutting from the military budget while creating the need for those services by advocating Wars of corporate conquest based purely on LIES. This is the same type of ripoff that Mr Bruce pulled. Jackoffs get paid by the Taxpayers to make themselves look good, so they can call themselves "Tax Heroes" and get really stupid people to support them with more money. Beck and O'Reilly and Limbaugh and the rest of the Korporate Klown Kartel at Fox get paid to promote the wars. They make 100% of their income promoting

Fundamentalists might heed a Catholic, or not

But some will be swayed by people who only speak English, and that not much goodly, (bad joke and I'd have to go to a seance and ask Shakespeare if it's actually grammatically correct, which leads to==>>) but will insist that Shakespearean/Jacobite English mistranslates "Thou Shalt Not Kill" when the original Hebrew grammar translates as "Thou Shalt Not MURDER", that killing human beings on ones own initiative is Very Bad, Wicked, Naughty and (rightfully at that) considered "murder" and a crime, sin and a flaw in the basic working of the Human Soul. Whereas doing it at the command of the King (basically because somebody else told you to do it and you're too weak-minded to question his authority to demand such actions) is actually ordained by God as being righteous. Thus somebody who also doesn't speak any language other than English, and that poorly, like the fire-non-fighters from Tennessee recently made "Conservative" icons, can also insist that since the Shakespeare/King James English translated Ancient Hebrew badly, BECAUSE SOMEBODY ELSE WHO SPEAKS NEITHER jACOBITE ENGLISH NOR ANCIENT HEBREW TOLD HIM SO AND HE'S TOO WEAK MINDED TO QUESTION THAT PERSONS INTERPRETATION OF TWO LANGUAGES WHICH THAT PERSON

Treachery on the Springs City Council!

COLORADO SPRINGS- I have to admit dropping my guard on the TABOR issue yesterday after 5 out of 4 council members pledged on Monday to vote in favor of putting reform on the November ballot. Private citizens who testified before the council went home satisfied that the city had heeded their words. No such luck. On Tuesday when the official vote was taken, two of the members changed their vote to NO. Council woman Jan Martin and Mayor Lionel Rivera decided to reverse what they'd told the public they'd do. 8502

Weiss TABOR reform has votes to pass!

COLORADO SPRINGS- I attended a COS city council meeting today, lured by the prospect that Vice Mayor Larry Small was going to call the CS Independent publisher a liar to his face.   I'm always excited at the prospect of differences of opinion reaching a level of incivility. Do we care about these issues? Or is it all about liking each other, regardless who's oppressing whom? We gentlemen debaters, after all, are never those affected by the injustices in question. 8486
