Here We Go Again

So, we have to file federal income tax and state income tax. How about having to file county income tax? With no limit on the amount of the tax. Sound good? Bet you haven’t heard about this one. Wonder why. Kind ‘a like a dirty little surprise waiting for us. Here it is word for word. Anyone that lives in sunny f’ing California might want to read this and start making phone calls or sending e-mail to that a-hole that is supposed to be representing you in the state capitol. BTW it’s set for a hearing on April 27th. ********************************************************************************** SENATE BILL No. 653 Introduced by Senator Steinberg February 18, 2011 An act to add Chapter 3.8 (commencing with Section 7295) to Part 1.7 of Division 2 of the Revenue and Taxation Code, relating to local taxation. legislative counsel’s digest SB 653, as introduced, Steinberg. Local taxation: general authorization.

Well somebody has to pay for all of those illegals in all of those sanctuary cities on the left coast. We still have some room over here in Arizona.....the state that is taking on the feds on our way to the Supreme Court. Lets see if they have the balls to say illegal is the new legal.

ughghgh......another f'n fight. I'm f'n too tired. I just wish I could move out of this state now. I love California, but I'm sick and tired of it changing rules and implementing taxes whenever they want to and for whatever they want too. The sick thing is PEOPLE VOTE for this shit!! They don't read in between the lines and just f'n VOTE and say "I voted" woopteedooeee. Idiots...bafoonage at large! Thanks for the info... I think :)

Fuck it....yup, just screw it all. It's all good...at least I know I'm taking it in the ass. "Knowing is half the battle"...now, what does the second half of the battle entail?

Yep, like Stevie Ray said:

Let me tell you how it will be
There's one for you, 19 for me
'Cause I'm the taxman
Yeah, I'm the taxman

Should 5 percent appear too small
be thankful I don't take it all
'Cause I'm the taxman
Yeah I'm the taxman

If you drive a car
I'll tax the street
If you try to sit
I'll tax your seat
If you get too cold
I'll tax the heat
If you take a walk
I'll tax your feet

Don't ask me what I want it for
If you don't want to pay some more
'Cause I'm the taxman
Yeah, I'm the taxman

Now my advice for those who die
Declare the pennies on your eyes
'Cause I'm the taxman
Yeah, I'm the taxman

And you're working
for no one
but me.
