No, Igor: If it comes out of their mouths it is the truth. You on the other hand have to proveRead More everything you say. At least that's the way it seemed when I last did jury duty. Hypocrisy.

Last time I had jury duty, the judge giving the instructions told us that when listening toRead More testimony, the police testimony holds no more credence than the average citizen. If you fight a ticket, guess who the judge is going to believe?

According to William A. Niskanen, one of the architects of Reaganomics, "Reagan delivered onRead More each of his four major policy objectives, although not to the extent that he and his supporters had hoped", and notes that the most substantial change was in the tax code, where the top marginal individual income tax rate fell from 70.1% to 28.4%, and there was a "major reversal in the tax treatment of business income", with effect of "reducing the tax bias among types of investment but increasing the average effective tax rate on new investment". Roger Porter, another architect of the program, acknowledges that the program was weakened by the many hands that changed the President's calculus, such as Congress.[2][21] President Reagan, has remained popular as an antitax hero despite raising taxes eleven times over the course of his presidency, all in the name of fiscal responsibility.[22] Reagan ultimately raised taxes more times than he cut them.[23] According to Paul Krugman, "Over all, the 1982 tax increase undid about a third of the 1981 cut; as a share of GDP, the increase was substantially larger than Mr. Clinton's 1993 tax increase."[10] According to historian and domestic policy adviser Bruce Bartlett, Reagan's tax increases over the course of his presidency took back half of the 1981 tax cut. Though since the Reagan tax reductions, top marginal tax rates have remained lower than at any point in US history since 1931, when the top marginal rate was raised from 25% to 63%. [24]

It's not the number of times that count, it's the size of the resulting cuts, and txes dropped underRead More Reagan, and economy boomed. Reagan's tax increases were part of a deal with Democrats to reduce spending. The taxes went up but the spending cuts never occurred. Just like Reagan's amnesty was supposed to be tied to border enforcement. Reagan's two biggest mistakes involved trusting Democrats to hold up their end of the deal. Those of us who remember that will never be fooled again.

Mr Lundt April 23, 2014 at 10:53 pm
There is more to the equation than money. The great thing about the US is that the states can tryRead More certain laws and see the TOTAL impact. To early to tell. The reality is that the pot farmers in Mexico(and all over) are now growing and producing harsher drugs. So does not hurt or help the drug dealers or cartels---they simply switch drugs. The fact that the author can only talk about short term economic changes means they are VERY short sided and greedy. Let Colorado and Washington be our petri dish and do not rush to decide the outcome after only a few months.

Let's get to the point. What Jon Daniel tweeted was not true parody (or impersonation) at all.Read More Political parody should mimic the target's personality and actions, not present unrealistic scenarios that bear no resemblance to his behavior. For an example of true parody, see the Onion's current take-off of Eric Cantor. What Daniel did was nasty and unimaginative.

Dean Dewson April 3, 2014 at 03:56 am
Congratulations are in order to Mayor Elect Reilly and I highly doubt he would mess with an event asRead More popular and trouble free as the Friday Night Live. I do know however, that several of his most vocal supporters are the people who were trying to at least cut way back on the Friday Night Live events, so he may have to resist that pressure from those people. I was at one of the debates and the subject came up and he denied any plans to change it, so we'll see if he keeps his word or not! I for one think it would be an early political suicide to do so, that's a very popular event that unlike a lot of large gatherings, has had basically zero trouble, I think a lot of the people who voted for him over the former mayor would not be happy about that!

This has to be the best April Fool Joke Ever, Jeff Scrima. I received an e mail from Jeff ScrimaRead More asking for my vote. It is interesting that the only time I ever contacted Mr. Scrima it was regarding an issue which I contacted him at city hall. Evidently while he will not return calls or e mails regarding city business he is too busy yet he feels fine stealing the names of constituents for his electioneering. Jeff, if you are listening...we are fed up with your pathetic excuse of leadership and that is going to change today! Good riddance.
