Facts don't matter. Class warfare and the ability to increase taxes is all that really matters.

California and taxes.

It's synonymous with love and marriage.

I am very grateful I don’t live in California. Much of the state is beautiful, but I found that those places are mostly far away from the Liberal/Democrat strongholds.

As far as new taxes go, watch private spending decrease even further or perhaps the black and gray markets will start to soar.

Jerry Brown on cause and effect-

“Boy, Sutter, it sure is hot in here. I guess I’ll turn up the thermostat to cool things down.”

"A $9 billion pop would be less than a 6 percent increase in the level of state and local taxation, now about $160 billion a year. The increase would also be less than one-half of one percent of California's economic output. In purely economic terms, therefore, it would be tiny and by itself would be unlikely to have any appreciable impact, positive or negative, on the state's economy."

Dan Walters is not exactly a great thinker. A bullet can bring down an elephant but it is tiny compared to the elephant's size.
