Now that we have our personal freedoms lets continue to punish, oppress, rule, persecute, and lynch the businessman, and ignore the irony.

I like your political views, I think. Keep up the good work.

That's not the place for tax policy.

I agree that most if not all of the amendments were overstepping. The only one I really wanted through was the individual mandate one as it would have been more of a statement than anything. I was also really hoping the one about state funding for religious groups was going to fail, which it did.

MA:

-voted out a truly bipartisan senator for a qualified but whiny liberal figure head (not shocking)
-voted against intellectual property (ballot 1 - right to repair)
-voted against humane end of life (ballot 2 - assisted suicide for the terminally ill ... ******* Catholics)
-voted for medical marijuana (ballot 3 - which begs the question: WTF happened on ballot 2?)

I'm hoping Colorado/Washington's move towards legalization leads to critical drug reform ... way to go!

Californee also:

Rejected Prop 33, which would have allowed auto insurers to adjust rates based on driver history (makes me sad), but we also

Rejected Prop 37, which would have resulted in more BS labeling requirements for food that don't actually accomplish anything, which makes me happy.


Sadly, the aforementioned tax-loophole-closure (Prop 39) isn't actually going to help the state budget. Most of money being confiscated from the productive businesses is earmarked for greenwashing projects, and there's really no accountability attached to it. Just more tax-to-spend politics.

I think what people should really care is Measure B plus Prop 30 is going to effectively move the **** industry out of CA, along with most other business...

and then ill laugh when they don't quite recover the 6 billion in extra revenue they project.

and then ill be all like, the laffer curve is a fallacy.

Nah- Measure B applies only in LA. The **** stars are welcome to join us down here in sunnier San Diego.

Sidebar: I predict that Jackie Treehorn (and others) will begin shifting their focus away from "pornography" and towards "educational films."

The savings of state tax payer money has begun. Imagine that, not locking up people for non-violent non crimes and filling up the jails and the legal system. I think Violent crimes will drop as well because the industry won’t be so lucrative for violent criminals to be in and can you say tax revenue.
