Friday Funnies – the straw that broke TABOR’s back
After searching far and wide for recent examples of humorous content relevant to our Supreme Court (and believe me, after a long and busy week, I needed the laugh), I came up empty. Apparently, it’s been a very unfunny week for the Colorado judiciary.
Looks like we’ll have to generate our own humorous content for the site – and yes, we do have some great projects in the works, but they’re not quite ready for prime time. Check back next week, though…
The infamous “Mill Levy Tax Freeze” ruling did more than just (unconstitutionally) raise property taxes; it also opened the door to millions in new taxes, some of which were proposed literally hours after the legislature was briefed on the ruling before passing into law in the last legislative session.
Added to the stealthily-issued (the day before national elections) ruling upholding an outrageously expansive definition of “fees” (replacing “taxes”) and the later unconstitutional repeal of the Arveschoug-Bird spending limit, and TABOR has indeed been “bumped off the cliff” by the Mullarkey Court.
Wow – I guess it has been a pretty unfunny week after all.
Don’t let the Mullarkey Court throw grandma (er, TABOR) off the cliff. Ditch the Mullarkey Majority (Justices Michael Bender, Alex Martinez, Nancy Rice, and Chief Justice Mary Mullarkey) by voting “NO” to retain these unjust justices in 2010! Let’s Clear The Bench, Colorado!
