Douglas Bruce, a long time activist in Colorado and well known tax opponent, was recently arrested for petitioning at a CostCo (contact: 591-3000) to get the issue of repealing the rain tax, the storm water tax, or any number of other things that it has been called, back on the ballot. Irrespective of the name, in this case it is a fee. (It becomes a tax if any of it is diverted to the city from the enterprise that charges it.) It was not approved by the voters and violates TABOR, if not in letter then in spirit.

If you choose to use to use any language which our editors feel is vulgar -- by their standards -- your comment may be tagged "Crude or Lewd" and may be filtered out of the discussion by those who prefer not to read that sort of thing. If you know you have entered something which will cause your comment to be tagged, we ask that you tag it yourself to save us the time. We do encourage everyone to be civil and not make rude attacks on other people in the Forum. We don't censor out those remarks, but few people enjoy reading them and we would like participation in our Forums to be a pleasant experience for everyone. And, by concentrating on what is said instead of who is saying it, even those who may disagree with you will be more likely to consider your opinions valid.
Thank you for your cooperation!
