In my area, the taxoholics are at it AGAIN. 7 times in the 13 years I've been here (And this will be my last year here unless there is a freaking unexpected miracle) the school district has had a ballot referendum, and the same has been rejected 8 times! (They had 2 referenda questions last year, both rejected by good margins, as all of them have been...but the last one was closer than any of the others.
They've had these questions 2 years straight, now. And I was at the market, spotted the headline on the local paper: Ballot Referendum approved for November. THREE STRAIGHT YEARS. Theses Tax-o-holics NEVER give up. They are losers, sore losers, who cannot and will not take "NO" for an answer.
I will not be in this area after January of 2011. But there is a principle involved here. Forcing the people to vote on the same question 3, 4, 5 years straight when they have rejected it 8 times is ridiculous. It's unfair. I'd almost call it unconstitutional, but that wouldn't be correct. But these fools, dorks, spendthrift Demoncrats are at it again, trying to get us to raise our property taxes by 200/year, or more. NO WAY, YOU JACKASSES!
I have voted no on ALL school referenda questions since 1979. I will continue to do so. The Government shouldn't be involved in the schools anyway. Not the Fed, not the state.
I am supporting a law to prohibit reprising the questions more than 1 time in 3 years. It is UNFAIR to the people to have to say NO, NO, NO, NO, NO! But these jerks seem to think it will wear the NAY-Voters down. And it hasn't worked yet. Last year it was an 8% margin of defeat. It's going to be BIG this year. Bigger than ever. And I, for one, am going to write a scathing letter to the school district about BEGGING in this manner. And I am going to tell them STOP SPENDING ALL YOUR MONEY SUPPORTING THIS TAX INCREASE, AND SPEND IT ON THE SCHOOLS. They spend $10,000 plus each time they try this, and they are wasting their budget money. It just goes to show that these fools think a sob story is gonna work for them. I'm here to prove them wrong!
These taxoholics MUST BE SILENCED, by LAW IF NECESSARY. And it seems necessary--AS I SEE IT!
