It’s always amusing to listen to leftists like Spehar blather away. That’s what they’re best at, because they have no intention of learning anything. They just want to demonize and destroy those who hold opinions with which they disagree.
For example, duopoly “Good-Old-Boy” wannabees such as Spehar never talk about the less-than-subtle philosophical differences between those who believe in top-down “economic development” — where the elite apply for grants and issue bonds to build buildings the voters have rejected and pay out taxpayer-funded “freebies” to lure businesses to relocate in the Grand Valley — and those who believe in real bottom-up economic development where honest entrepreneurs start small businesses which make and sell widgets at a profit because the Grand Valley is a nice place to be. Big difference. Life-and-death difference. Self-ownership v. wage/tax slavery difference.
Leftists, of course, believe “normal” salt-of-the-earth citizens are too stupid to understand this stuff, and therefore will lack the motivation to take political action to remedy the situation. I have some bad news for Spehar’s cutesy ilk: they are wrong. Let’s look at a couple of inconvenient economic facts.
The technology of personal computers, smart phones and the Internet has changed the paradigm. Top-down political-manipulation-based funny money no longer controls. Enterprises like the vestigial dinosaur propaganda (so-called “mainstream”) media are facing extinction. Because the universe is inherently a cause-and-effect free market place, it is now possible for a couple of pajama-clad bloggers living in their mothers basements (and funded entirely by donations) to dramatically undermine the MSM’s revenue stream.
In these times of technological wonders, it is entirely possible to form an online community of freedom-loving (aka “tinfoil hat wearing”) individuals and businesses who have websites and use social media for their marketing to network with each other basically for free. At that point, brick-and-mortar enterprises (like the Sentinel) with their multi-million-dollar buildings, their multi-million-dollar presses, their scores of employees and their high utility bills will be rendered extinct because they won’t be able to generate the income necessary to pay their overhead costs.
(As an aside, the same can be said of the expensive brick-and-mortar corrals known as “public schools”.)
At that point, cutesy pies like Spehar will have to find something else to do with their time. Won’t that be a real tragedy?
We can fade this story out to the joyfully defiant sounds of Bob Dylan’s song “The Times They Are a-Changin’”.

Jim Spehar, it would have been nice for you to mention coloradopols.com assuming that’s where you got the “clown caucus” tag.  Very enjoyable article otherwise.

John Wilkenson, you could have worked the “stimulus is slavery” bit into the first paragraph for more impact.
