Amy Oliver — Up On The Roof!

Boo! Former President Bill Clinton is in town on Monday (scary?!) and the political ads will surely get you down, so run from the statists and head on up to the roof for our “stimulus” happy hour with Amy Oliver Cooke.

This week is sure to be a treat as we are joined by the entertaining and engaging Amy Oliver, award winning radio host, blogger, director of the Colorado Transparency Project, and founder of Mothers Against Debt (MAD) for the Independence Institute. (Check out MAD’s video, “Baby Ball and Chain,” at, which was featured on Fox and Friends, for a sample of Ms. Oliver’s work.) She has also started Citizen Auditors, to help train us regular folk on keeping government at all levels accountable.

For more details about Ms. Oliver, please visit:

Local Colorado Activists Question Democratic Candidates on Tax Issues

While attending a campaign event for Democratic Gubernatorial candidate John Hickenlooper along with a few local activists, I became curious about whether the current Mayor was planning to lower our taxes if he was elected to be Colorado’s governor.  After spending about 10 minutes talking about the importance of the economy and helping families who are struggling financially, I thought it was a fair question to ask. So what was the Mayor’s response? To say that we are “…about as low as we can go with taxes.”

Check out the story and watch a video of the Mayor’s response on the new up and coming site Who Said, You Said.

After hearing the Mayor’s response, I perused the local Colorado Spending Transparency site, a project of the Independence Institute, where I (quickly) found a story exposing the fact that over $9 million of the Colorado State budget was spent on a combination of bankcard fees, interest on late payments and a host of other miscellaneous fees and fines. It doesn’t stop there either. Another story shows us that since the beginning of July of this year, $764,024.72 has been spent on advertising for the state. Gee, I wonder what it is they are advertising? Maybe it’s how well they are spending our money? Perhaps Hickenlooper should put an additional clause on his statement reading “…so long as we continue down the path of wasting a good portion of the money that is already coming in…”
