Those guys up on the "hill" are nuts! I just don't see how they come up with some of these ideas...for those of you who aren't familiar with Utah politics the lovely Senator Valentine pushed through legislation a while back that requires restaurants to hide liquor bottels and have a partitian between the bar and the back bar -- that silly man wants to build and entire ten foot wall to cover the whole back bar so people cannot see drinks mixed or poured.... what?!? Sensor, much?
Also, this company Energy Solutions that wants to pay the state sooo much money to import nuclear waste into the Utah waste lands...Why is this such and issue- no one even goes over there... have you ever flown to Tahoe? Western Utah is disgusting! Nothing can live- why not make a buck off of it? Personally I wasn't oppose even before Energy Solutions offered to share profits with the state- but now? Now I'm choppin' at the bit.
Raising taxes to $1.30 on cigarettes? whatever... Raising taxes on food and gas? What- did you know we are in a recession? How about raising taxes on Seven Jeans? As a fellow designer jean wearer myself, I'm all about a good deal- but why raise taxes on things we have to have? Raise them on things we like to have... Hail to the Fair Tax!
There are my opinions... take them or leave them- and for goodness sakes, write your senators!
