Biased Title for Jerry’s Tax Initiative

John Seiler:

Get a load of this title AG Kamala Harris gave Gov. Jerry Brown’s $7 billion tax-hike initiative: “TEMPORARY TAXES TO FUND EDUCATION. GUARANTEED LOCAL PUBLIC SAFETY FUNDING.”

That should trick a couple hundred California voters into voting for the Dear Leader’s unneeded tax grab, maybe putting it over the top.

A more accurate title would have been: “MASSIVE TAX INCREASE WOULD ROB YOU AND DESTROY JOBS.”

Or how about: “WASTEFUL TAX INCREASE WOULD FUND PENSIONS, DESTROY THE STATE.”

But Harris’s title is what we get when voters put far-left ideologues in power like her and the Dear Leader.

    I believe there is, unfortunately,.plenty of very, very uninformed voters who will fall for. I mean they voted for Brown didnt they. Plus, I think there are a lot of people who have that mindset that there are plenty of rich people who can afford it. You know, that class warfare BS! I hpe Im wrong!

    Hey Bob, get real here! The entire state government is a criminal enterprise – has been for quite a few years.

    Well in some degree she has it right. If we don’t give the unions what they want all our public safety will be in jeopardy. In Greece the unions caused the riots. Amerika is next.

    The rioting came on the first day of a 48-hour nationwide general strike that brought services in much of Greece to a standstill, grounding flights for hours, leaving ferries tied up in port and shutting down customs offices, stores and banks.

    More than 100,000 people took to the streets of the Greek capital to demonstrate against the austerity bill, which includes new tax hikes, further pension and salary cuts, the suspension on reduced pay of 30,000 public servants and the suspension of collective labor contracts.

    “Temporary” taxes?! ROTFL!!! They’ll expire about the time Captain Jean-Luc Picard gives the Enterprise helmsman the “Engage” command for his last time!

    Yes, Mr. Eric.

    I highly doubt we will hear Picard say “make it so” to ending those “temporary tax increases.

    Let’s not forget that the “Victory Tax” was also a “temporary” measure to win the war, today we call it Mandatory Witholding for Personal Income Tax. Income Tax was not applicable to the masses at the time, just the Very Wealthy and a very low rate at that.
