Please publish an article detailing the recent legislative efforts to end redevelopment agencies here in California.
It's very confusing and hard to know what is going on.
I recall hearing you talk at a MORR conference in San Jose some years' back and appreciate your efforts on behalf of property rights.
The Capitol is a corrupt, hopeless collection of parasitic Socialists and the voters of this state are apparently too ignorant to discipline them at the polls. 80 percent of "legislators" live paycheck to paycheck because they are unemployabe in the real world. California is a failed state and I pray the rest of America refuses to bail it out when the inevitable collapse happens.
ENOUGH! Let’s vote on California taxes.
But let’s let the voters have REAL choice. Put TWO measures on the ballot.
1. Governor Brown’s proposed “temporary” five year multiple-tax raise (it is NOT a tax extension — all the taxes will have expired before it gets to the ballot — the previous income tax increase expired 1 January).
2. A second measure to REDUCE state taxes by roughly the same amount.
Yes, let's let the voters decide.
What’s that you say, Governor? It would be “irresponsible” to put such a choice before the voters?
Gosh, after all that talk about letting the electorate have their say in the matter. I’m stunned!
