Measures 66 &67

This forum is for SURF topics such as localism and rants that are usually negative in nature. If you're a baby, complainer, or generally think you're right and everyone else is wrong this is the place for you. PLEASE NOTE, all forum rules still apply, but just a little more liberally enforced. Registration is required.

That's fine, but I will remember this after you graduate and start bragging about your new corporate job.

Whatever, I'm an artist. Beach bum philosophinizing with a job at Game Crazy is my future; maybe the Pelican Brewpub. I have standards.

Of course it's not a crime! If it was, we couldn't tax it. :lol:

my principle recently laid out next year's school budget if the measures pass and if they do not, huge difference.

we will loose both staff and programs if the measures don't pass. It is a no-brainer, if you make less than 250K and have (or will have) kids in public school,

Vote yes...

Under-educated people don't make much money either. Well, most under-educated people. So, can poorly educated people support the US economy? Apparently, if their taxes are low enough.

I benefit from government services
Government is financed by taxes
I don't benefit from paying taxes.
If the government is financed while I don't have to pay taxes then I only stand to benefit.

I have to pay more taxes if I make 250k or more. I have to pay more taxes if I'm a corporation or work for a corporation that will delegate their tax burden to the employees.

I am none, therefore I only stand to benefit.

People that generally have the means i.e. people that make over 250k and corporations make decisions based on the same sort of criteria and will always vote to benefit themselves not me.

It 's me against them, so stuff 'em.


Spoken like a true liberal.

I vote to benefit my community, not punish one population or the other based on my own bias.

Wilbur incorrectly identified,

Hardly, that's the fundamental postulate of free-trade and the conservative mantra and sometimes natural selection. We should be toasting our orange mocha frappaccinos to punishing communities, 'cause we're clearly on the same side.

Hermgruf guffawed
Tax business until they're OUT OF BUSINESS.


I sincerely doubt $150 is going to make or brake a small business. Even if they're running an annual profit margin so tight that it means an employees job then they're probably not going to last much longer anyways. $150 is seven hours of work for any job there isn't already a zillion of.
On the other hand the collection of $150 will be wasted on more useless jobs which all jobs pretty much are in the first place.

Don't know it.
But it is a pretty safe bet.

The people of the village knew the little boy was full of crap when he cried wolf, until he wasn't.

But even then, the worst thing that happened was a useless crybaby was eliminated.

So....for whatever that's worth.

C'mon...don't be a sucker man.
