We have talked about how to get people out to vote for years. One method we have neglected to mention is good, old-fashioned bribery. When it comes to locals, maybe we can use a little incentive.

Here are The Top 10 Ways to Get Locals to Vote:

10) Free Spam (but not that nasty turkey one).

9) Slippahs for life!

8) Cut-in-line pass for Matsumoto’s shave ice.

7) One case Bud Light.

6) Two-month bus pass.

5) 20 tickets to Brothers Caz May Day Concert.

4) Chance to buy one house for under $600,000

3) Two case Bud Light.

2) Longs gift certificate.

1) Trip to Las Vegas!!!

There has been a great deal of press about our economy. Inflation is up. Home prices are rising. Tourism is off. But the one under-reported story is just how much money is siphoned out of our economy and into the pocket of government. Why not calculate the cost of fees and taxes such as “The Bottle Bill,” wind-fall General Excise Tax collections on the increasingly expensive gallon of gas, the ratcheted hikes in property taxes, sewer fee increases, car registration bumps, and the Big Daddy of them all - the 12.5 percent increase in the GET on Jan. 1, 2007. The more money taken from you by government weakens your purchasing or saving power. Remember the $650 million government kept of your money this year? Bet you could use some of that to take care of your family. Thank you, Democrats!

I simply want to heave every time I see that sicko John Carr’s picture. He, of course, is the twisted degenerate who confessed to the murder of little JonBenet Ramsey, was extradited from Thailand, then dismissed summarily by Boulder, Colo., prosecutors when DNA did not match. What a carnival. His face should serve as a reminder of the depravity of a professed pedophile. Carr’s nauseating fantasies are not enough to convict him of a crime, but there is at least one relative who has emerged alleging Carr molested him.

The Boulder prosecutors are between a rock and a hard place. I can understand the outrage by some who are hypercritical of their announcement of an arrest and subsequent release, but here is a guy who confessed animatedly to a 10-year-old crime celebre and had some case details not released to the public. Of course, you gotta bring him in, but in business class? I hope the charges brought against him are investigated vigorously and prosecuted aggressively. This scum of the earth, based on his sordid testimony and agony inflicted upon JonBenet’s family, needs to be removed from society.
