Friday Funnies – A Birthday Tribute to our celebrity Spokespup
This weekend, Clear The Bench Colorado celebrates the birthday of our celebrity spokespup, Nola. Nola was born on or about this date (the circumstances of her birth preclude a definitive answer) four years ago in the hurricane-ravaged environs of New Orleans.

Surviving a natural disaster like Hurricane Katrina – and the descent into anarchy enabled by massively inept local and state government authorities, before being rescued by Colorado Army National Guard Soldiers sent to provide assistance – has made Nola a staunch patriot and deeply appreciative of the need to support the rule of law.
Nola’s innate sense of fairness has been offended by the Mullarkey Majority’s outrageous rulings – and she’s been confused by the semantic shenanigans and word games played by the same Mullarkey Court to justify unfair and unconstitutional treatment of Colorado citizens.
She’s worried that the better life she has built in Colorado after being rescued from New Orleans is threatened by higher taxes on her home, higher taxes on vehicle registration (she loves – or used to be able to enjoy– going for rides), unconstitutional taxes on her right of self-defense, and a whole litany of other taxes and “fees“ likely to be imposed thanks to the Mullarkey Majority’s relentless assaults on our constitutional protections under the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights (TABOR). She’s even worried that some overzealous bureaucrat might try to condemn or seize her doghouse, thanks to the Mullarkey Majority’s ruling in the Telluride Land Grab case – which left no one’s property safe, not even a cute little pup’s.
Don’t let the mean old judges of the Mullarkey Court spoil Nola’s birthday – and the better life she’s been building in Colorado. Join Clear The Bench Colorado and Colorado’s canines and kittens in restoring “power to the people” (and pups – sorry, Nola). Help to restore accountability to the Colorado judiciary by exercising YOUR RIGHT to vote “NO” on retaining the four unjust justices of the Mullarkey Majority (Justices Michael Bender, Alex Martinez, Nancy Rice, and Chief Justice Mary Mullarkey) who need YOUR approval to continue taking away your rights: your right to vote on tax increases, your right to defend your homes and business from seizure by rapacious governments, and your right to enjoy the benefits of the rule of law, not rule by the activist, agenda-driven “justices” of Colorado’s ruling Supreme Court majority. Support Clear The Bench Colorado with your voice (Sound Off!), your contributions, and your “NO” vote on retaining these unjust justices in 2010!
