After the bill comes due, the cost of hiring 100 *(to start)* high paid State auditors, Government lawyers, and "other" political appointees will hit home. Just what overtaxed Californians need. To be put on the hook to pay for even more unfunded retirement and to stand the cost of providing "other generous taxpayer provided perks".

Rather than to adjust to today's competitive world, the State's protected retailers have grown fat and lazy by seeking refuge behind their politician pals, claiming competition to be "unfair". They demand their oppressive political buddies crack down even more on struggling taxpayers, taxpayers who see State protected prices rise and income fall daily.

In more enlightened times, it was Governmental policy to fight inflation in order to preserve the purchasing power of those who must pay the cost of Government "services". Today, Government has thrown in the towel and is busy "fighting deflation". Is it any wonder why the nation's economy is in such dire straits?

Think it is unlawful to tax Californiens from States that have no sales tax.

I had to chuckle while reading an article about our reycling program. It seems it's not really worth it considering the high labor and fuel costs. That's not to mention those specialized trucks they have to buy and maintain. Those new trucks don't compact as tightly as the regular trucks do so they have to make more trips to Wilmington and back. But don't look forward to the cancellation of a failed program anytime soon as they now collect double the monthly trash bill than what we had before the recyle program. Double collection fees, whoopee that's right up their alley.
