It’s Levine and Levy Thursday as two of Kim’s show sponsors, award winning realtor Karen Levine with RE/MAX Alliance (303-877-7516) and mortgage specialist Lorne Levy with Polygon Financial Group (303-880-8881), join Kim in the studio. Kim reminds listeners to use “We the People” Voter’s Guide when voting on the three state ballot issues and school board members. Vote NO on all new taxes and tax increases, including City of Lone Tree’s proposed 55% retail sales increase 2E, Proposition 119 and all four of Castle Rock’s questions, 2A, 2B, 2C and, 2D. Douglas County School Board sues the Douglas County Commissioners in Federal Court. The School District sued that the rights of students with disabilities were violated. The judge issued a temporary restraining order ruling against the mask exemption the Douglas County Health Department issued. This is a clear example of force vs. freedom. To bring common sense back to the Douglas County School Board vote for Peterson, Myers, Williams and Winegar. We all have an interest in school board races regardless of our age or financial standing. We must vote to protect our children and ensure their success for the future. Informed voting is a civic duty. Steve asks Kim to clarify PBI’s. They are Politicians, Bureaucrats and Special Interests. Proposition 119 unravels and sheds light on the Special Interests of Tony Lewis, founder of RESCHOOL, and his “friends.”
This Sunday on America’s Veterans Stories Kim interviews Pruett Helm, profiled in the book Mended Wings: The Vietnam War Experience Through the Eyes of Ten American Purple Heart Helicopter Pilots, at 3pm on KLZ 560 AM and KLZ 100.7 FM.
Kim, Karen and Lorne continue their conversation giving attention to Biden’s $3.5 trillion bill. As Lorne points out, there are actually two bills on the table, one on physical infrastructure (roads, bridges, etc.) and a second one that is “social” infrastructure (i.e., paid family leave, free community college, etc.). Karen states that in the infrastructure bill there is actual language that is an attack on single family ownership. Kim brings up the potential for an unrealized capital gains tax on homes and the financial detriment that it would result in for families. In order to monitor people’s behavior, Biden sets his eyes on hiring thousands of new IRS agents. When the government is big and the individual is small things deteriorate, and when the individual is big and the government is small people can flourish in their prosperity. The question of profit is continually raised, mostly out of envy. Karen encourages listeners to be educated. Lorne stresses the need to act, now, before opportunities disappear.
