"Today's news is disappointing and frustrating for Coloradans who want leaders capable of making tough decisions and guiding our nation through ... Full Story

Class Warfare: Q&A

Class Warfare: Q&A

  With all the talk about class warfare the commentary on the Rasmusen Reports is enlightening. It is also enlightening that when ever the subject is brought up by conservatives, it is made to sound that class warfare is bad. The Koch brothers and their ilk are, and have been actively engaged in class war fare for some time now yet there has been no hue and cry from the conservatives. Why is it that when the less affluent want more it is class war fare and when the wealthy want more it ... Full Story

The Military Industrial Complex: The Enemy from Within

The Military Industrial Complex: The Enemy from Within

      By John W. Whitehead July 11, 2011     “Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes … known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few.… No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.”—James Madison   “When a nation becomes ...

A delightful afternoon with the IRS

Rev. James L. Snyder I do not get as many letters as I used to do, which may be due to the Internet or to the fact that I do not have as many literate friends as I used to. I still like getting a letter, as long as it is a letter and not a bill. Bill used to write me but he was always asking for money. I did get a letter this past week. It was unexpected but it was from a family member. Good old Uncle Sam sent me an epistle this past week. I was anxious to see how he was getting along. I ... Full Story

Committee to Reduce Government Waste

Editors note: If waste is so rampant, why has nothing been done before? The following oped is is mostly political rhetoric that surfaces when ever budget cutting is talked about. The amount to be saved is probably overstated and the time period is not specified. It is a drop in the bucket of what is needed to balance the budget, much less reduce the national debt. Unfortunately, the politicians will not discuss what is really needed to deal with the debt, increase taxes and reduce military ... Full Story

The taxing of my fragile sanity

Rev. James L. Snyder I'm fine now, but such was not the case this past week. Normally, I am not given to procrastination, except when it comes to giving my money away. I am not Mr. Scrooge but I am Mr. Fugal. I always pay my income tax but I also wait until the last minute to write that check and autograph it for good old Uncle Sam. I was thankful to have several extra days to do it this year. Instead of April 15, the government extended to April 18. I am not sure the reason nor do I care ... Full Story

My yearly correspondence with good old Uncle Sam

By Rev. James L. Snyder April 15th is the time of the year when American citizens can communicate with their government. I cannot testify for anyone else, but I look forward to this marvelous opportunity, and I am careful not to waste it. This year, for example, so much has happened since last year it took 15 single spaced typed pages to include everything. However, to be perfectly honest (and who's perfect), I am a little disappointed. All the years I have included a personal letter ... Full Story
