Why I voted No on 66

For those who are quick to judge, it’s NOT because I’m anti education, or anti kids, or anything like that. In fact I’m very pro educated populace. I’ve seen idiocracy and if you haven’t you should. It’s one of those parody movies that hits a little close to home… To me, Amendment 66 had a huge flaw that made it a ‘no’ vote for me. It took two things that are very separate issues and tried to shove them together. I don’t know why, I don’t know if any thought was given to it, but it took a tax increase to the tune of 950 Mil. That’s almost 1 Billion dollars, and lumped it in with reforms to the way money for schools is handled. School reform is a big…

Happy Election Day!

Did you vote? If yes, good for you. If no, go do it right now. There’s no excuse for not exercising your rights as an American. Think the race is sewed up? Don’t fool yourself, as we’ve seen in the past, every vote counts. Stop what you’re doing right now and find your polling place, there’s a lot of them, unless you live in the sticks I’m, sure there’s one near you. Look at it this way if you don’t vote you have no right (zero, you’ll get punched in the face if you do) to complain about the outcome. You can’t cry on facebook. you can’t tweet about leaving the country or being upset so many Americans are so stupid. Non of it, you forfeit that right by not…

Vote. It’s important.

I’ll be honest, i don’t care who you voted for. I care that voted. I posted this to facebook but wanted to post it here too. I decided to share how I voted this year. I voted Obama (no surprise) and Democrat on the various seats and such. I voted Yes on S. I can’t see any downside and if it makes our states hiring practices a little more modern I’m ok with that. Also I don’t oppose Vets getting more preference in hiring. I voted YES on 64. I don’t smoke pot. I don’t care who does and much like cigarettes what you do in your house or car or not around me is your business. Plus more than anything. I want to tax the shit out of pot heads….

Snobbish goes both ways @vcarrolldp

This Sunday while sipping my coffee and reading the Sunday paper (We get one print paper a week, the Sunday) i came across an opinion piece by Vincent Carroll titled “Too Good for Walmart”. Read it here (assuming the Denver Post website doesn’t screw up the link). I loved how from the beginning Carroll takes the stance of being better than the snobby people who are anti Walmart, because he’s being more open minded. Of course he’s objective though, he makes sure to point out his neighborhood is getting a Target, which we all know is the same as a Walmart, so surely his point of view is completely valid. I don’t know anything about Carroll but his rant against people who don’t want a Walmart seems to be based from…
