How about we just keep our money in our pocket and boycott the commercialization of what is said to be a holy event. Catalogs started showing up in our mailbox when school started, i.e., in August, before Labor Day. A pox on corporate America.
Buy something useful like stuff for a vehicle emergency kit or a NOAA weather radio or a good 1st Aid kit
Pam, I know, but I haven't a link showing our low level of city tax income vis a vis other cities in COLO that do have tax incomes commensurate with requirements to provide basic services and road upkeep. To wit: What's wrong HERE is TABOR and the party of NO.
The El Paso County link merely illustrates the same problem as our city: TABOR
TABOR is the Godzilla destroying both city and county here, and is why the mayor's happy talk of 6000 new jobs per year proves he's a space cadet. No business of any note will come to this increasingly stagnant, crumbling backwater.
The link provided by OldCrank is a comparison of county spending, not city. The Springs Fire Department doesn't rely on El Paso County tax money for its support.
Here's what's wrong with CSFD: http://tinyurl.com/4f7drf3
One look at tax rates here tells the tale: http://tinyurl.com/4f7drf3
Our idiot voters are voting themselves out of existence: Sieg Heil TABOR.
Yes, I think additional funding over and above taxes should be voluntary. It gives the donor more control as to what it goes toward and the extra money comes from people who really want to provide more money to the school programs.
Yes, I agree with the person above. I've never seen a minister GIVE away their materials but if you look at his website you will find it ALL, and I do mean ALL for free. Also if you own a ROKU you can get everything on his channel that is also ALL FOR FREE. This is one of the most upstanding ministers I have ever seen and he speaks the truth. He has ministered to me in the area of healing for a life threatening issue and I am so much better after just 3 weeks of applying his principles to my life. You shouldn't post stuff like this about people like him. He speaks the truth and cares for others. He's human so he's not perfect, but God has blessed his life and if you don't like that part, you'll have to take it up with GOD.
