A short “blurb” last week quoted Gov. Sunspot’s Office as saying the “leadership of California” is behind the governor’s plan to increase sales and income taxes. The release then quoted the Gov. who lamented; “the cuts will be very, very drastic. They are going to be unpleasant any way you look at it” … if voters reject the tax hikes. The campaign to justify this outrageous money grab to put California further in the economic hole has started full time.

Seven years ago, Carol Stafford went into surgery for a broken leg, but when she awoke, she learned that her liver had almost failed due to
cirrhosis.

“I had just turned 50 and I had no idea my liver was three quarters gone. It was either going to be chemo treatments or the transplant,” said Stafford, who did not want either.

Stafford said after much discussion with her husband, Dennis, and daughter, Michelle, she decided to pursue the transplant.

More than 100 ballot propositions have so far been filed with the State Attorney General for possibly consideration in November 2012. Six of those are well-funded, credible attempts to raise various taxes for everything from the environment to the general fund. Let’s hope with six new taxes on the ballot — if they all qualify — folks will be so disgusted they will vote no on them all. It seems like we’re all about to be beaten to death to pay more of “our fair share.”

During public comments, Stanton backed up her words as she told an unruly speaker that she would have him removed if he did not follow her instructions.

“Sir, you are out of order,” said Stanton, without flinching, as two deputies approached the man. “Your time is up, sir.”
