Leg still obsessed with tax increases

So much new revenue is flowing into California that Gov. Jerry Brown’s May Revise budget projected an extra $4.5 billion this year. But even that was too low for Legislative Analyst, who projected another $3.2 billion on top of that.

Total: a $7.7 billion bonanza.

So what does the Democratic supermajority in the Legislature do? Say, “Thank you, taxpayers, for sending us so much money. We won’t tap you again.”

But noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

They want even more, sponsoring 20 tax-increase measures to gouge us even more.

The Legislature should just get it over with: Declare the erection of the California Soviet Socialist Republic, seize all the “means of production,” set up a gulag to imprison opponents and take over the entire economy.

    The politburo in Sacramentzky utlimately will seize all of the assets of the PEOPLE. All of us Comrades will gladly hand over our wealth to the state to create this utopia. This way the politburo with the assistance of the Central Committee will avoid the needless bureaucratic step of just taking a percentage of the wealth. Cutting out this needless step saves the PEOPLE money! Just be sure to plan for the lines to obtain your food and cloths and gasoline and … you get the idea.

    Yes Comrade do not hesitate to turn in all your money, 401’s IRA’s your gas guzzling Environmentally incorrect fossil fuel burning car, your home least the government may take it via Eminent Domain.

    After all the eco’s want all to live in Hi Rise multi density housingwhere we can all prosper with brown outs and wait in long lines for toilet paper and ride inefficient mass transit that will run on solar and wind and other green power.

    And comrade don’t forget your guns. After all an unarmed citizenry cannot fight back.
