Things are surprisingly lively around here for the week before the Cunning Christian Prelates' Winter Solstice and Mithrasmas Takeover Bid. I'll try and post something here before the weekend is out.
One local political note: I'm seeing signs
against two state-wide tax measures that I thought would be no-brainers; Measures 66, which raises taxes on the rich (anyone making more the $250K/year) and 67 (which raises the minimum corporate tax to $150/year from the current ten bucks)
You heard right. Nike? Ten bucks. Intel? Ten bucks. Adidas?
And the frustrating thing is...I've seen NO yard signs arguing FOR these measures.
"STOP TAX GIVEAWAYS TO RICH FATCATS! YES ON 66/67"!
How hard is that?
Honestly, there are times it's frustrating to be a liberal.
