So, out of 119 comments (and counting), exactly ONE person seems to like this new logo. If the comment section is an accurate representation of the citizens as a whole it would appear this is an absolute epic fail on the part of the mayor and aldermen. They should be embarrassed by what t…

Yep. The city got rolled by Northstar to the tune of $45K. Think about that when you start writing your property tax checks this fall.


Well, I'm fine with that idea. Especially regarding getting government out of our lifestyle choices. In fact, an argument can be made that the entire income tax code is nothing more than government driving behavior through financial incentive. As such, it's full of corruption. Thus the re…

A rebate is not the same as a permanent tax rate reduction. The first is a one time action, the second last a lot longer. There is a big difference. As far as the rest of the "stimulus", it was a complete waste of money. A laundry list of every crazy leftist idea they could come up with. …

No. My position on all churches losing tax exempt status is more a personal philosophy that churches simply should not be tax exempt, period. The fact that some of them abuse the privilege is just fuel on the fire. I'm not necessarily against genuine charity organizations having exempt st…

P-R. "Limited effect" is not the same as "no effect. The stimulus tax rebate (correct terminology as it was not a tax "cut") did have a limited effect. That's not the same as a permanent tax "cut" in whatever form it takes. That rebate scheme , as I said, did not include all taxpayers as …

That, of course, is the problem with the "tax and spend" left. Spend other peoples money to fund their pet projects. You would be better off starting the ball rolling. Bring a few illegal alien families into your home, take care of them, feed them, buy them a car. Maybe then you'd get a f…

P-R, I thought I was quite clear in my comment. Churches who are violating the law need to have their tax-exempt status revoked. Churches who are NOT in violation should not. Similarly, any non-profit that violates the law as it regards tax-exempt status should also lose it's status... no…

the tax cut aspect was acceptable as far as it went. Keep in mind is was only a two year deal and only applied to certain types of income. Surprise!!! Not everyone that earned income during that period got the tax rebate. Therefore, it had limited affect. That said, the entire inclusion o…

P-R, I'd rather see the IRS enforce the law. Bust up a few political churches and the rest will fall in line. It's pathetic that these institutions are not held accountable. As for "non-profit", maybe as a matter of legal definition but I think it's a stretch based on many that are clearl…
