Today’s edition of the Joke of the Day is pretty danged important!

"Our houses are such unwieldy property that we are often imprisoned rather than housed in them."

~ Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862), Walden: Economy, 1854

Prominent men in Hollywood and the world of politics have been accused of inappropriate behavior toward women. In some cases, men have lost their jobs and business connections, or been asked to resign over the allegations.   Do you agree with what’s going on, or is it an overreaction?

A Wyoming legislative committee is proposing a new 1 per cent tax on hotels, restaurants, bars, and other hospitality businesses. Money raised would go to the State Tourism Office.   Should Wyoming impose a new tax on hospitality businesses?

(WyomingNetwork does NOT represent this as a scientific poll.)
Some believe that cutting taxes stimulates the economy, because less money is taken out of paychecks, leaving more funds available for spending and saving. Others say that government spending on things like building and repairing roads, bridges, and buildings is better for the economy, because it means more people are hired to work on those projects.   Which do you think is a better way to stimulate the economy – tax cuts, or government spending to create more jobs?

Tax cuts are better for the economy

Creating new jobs through government spending is better for the economy

Currently, sales tax rates in Wyoming apply to an entire county. The Wyoming Association of Municipalities is calling for cities to be able to impose sales taxes on their own, without needing a full countywide vote. The cities say they need more revenue because the state is cutting the amount it returns to the cities. County commissioners say that’s not fair, because county residents would end up paying the tax and should be able to vote on it.   Should cities be allowed to impose sales taxes within city limits?

Yes, allow cities to impose their own sales taxes

No, do not allow cities to impose their own sales taxes
