Friday Funnies: Colorado “Fee” Mania Unleashed – on Colorado Canines n’ Kitties?
Welcome to another belated edition of the Friday Funnies (hey, our graphics guy is on vacation – and artistic talent is NOT tied to the Y chromosome in my family) for the latest in our continuing cavalcade of canine & kitty clips…
The last week has brought even more additions to the litany of backdoor taxes (er, “fees”) being foisted on Colorado citizens. Apparently unconcerned with widespread opposition to the Colorado Car Tax, Governor Ritter picked a showdown with Colorado gun owners by proposing more new taxes (sorry, “fees“) on gun sales and concealed-carry permits to “balance the budget.” Hmmm, and I thought that “fees” were supposed to be related to the cost of providing a particular government service? Oh, right – that quaint notion was swept aside (along with other constitutional protections against tax increases) by our activist Colorado Supreme Court.
Sooner or later, though, our governor and legislature will run out of people they can target for tax hikes – can going after kittens and puppies be far behind?
Don’t let the Mullarkey Majority unleash even more taxes (er, “fees”) by our rabidly spendthrift governor and legislature - support Clear The Bench Colorado and vote “NO” on these unjust justices before they can make even more Colorado puppies and kittens sad.
