Oh no, it's gonna change. More terrorist attacks, more welfare spent on illegals, and the middle class will continue to take it in the shorts, thanks to Odumma/Pelousy/CheckbouncerBox er, and the rest of the socialists. Pass the bong of truth around Moronites, take a big toke, and hold it in for the next three years!

I think the economy will get better in 2010 for those with the right skill-set.

The problem for Marin residents is that there are few jobs here; there is little room to accomadate much job growth here--as it is mostly a residential suburb of San Francisco. The problem I have encountered since moving here in 2004 is the commute. I have to commute (by bus or car) to SF or SSF--and it's about 2 hrs each day, or 10hrs per week or 40hrs per month. I have concluded that the lost time/fatigue in commuting outweighs the benefits of living in San Anselmo.

Boy, you really don't know much about much do you? You need to stop gripping your red book so tightly and understand how markets, jobs, and successful systems operate. I doubt you will, for some of the most stubborn thick headed meat-heads I have met are those who lean into marxist ideology.

Before you jump your pants to respond saying that this is the root problem with the great recession we are in, you should understand that it is exactly the methodology of increased social (not fair play rules for cheaters which proper rule-of-law) government intervention and increased taxation which has played a large part in the problem, and it is not always easily visible at first glance.

Every city will raise taxes to keep going and it will come from the members of each towns city councils. Then when they are up for election they will kiss your stupid ass-- and you will vote them in again. Good luck to all and start saving because Water , gas tax, city tax and sales taxes will go up this year. The Governor has said it loud and clear he needs more from the city's.. Wake up and smell the roses before they shove the stick down your throat

You will see indeed. Marin is tanking along with the rest of the State. If you believe in green jobs or that Marin will allow windmills and such, you are dreaming. The only tourists will be guests of Al Boro.

So Who exactly is going to hire, and pay these so-called "poor", being that the Folks with money will be taxed to death?

Why don't We tax old burnt-out Hippy Losers with Schwinns instead.

My 2010 PROJECTIONS:

- Commercial real estate: There's no light in this sector. Balloon payments on alot of commercial properties that were bought in last 5-7 years are coming up and with unoccupancy rates so high, expect commmercial property value to go down the toilet starting march or april of 2010. Commercial real estate will crash big time.

- Residential real estate: Expect no growth at all, maybe slight drop in prices (maximum 10%). Alot of banks/lenders are still holding residential real estates that are behind on their payments by 5-10 months. Soon they will be dumping these homes. No growth in this sector. The best time to buy residential property is just round the corner.

- Retail: No major dropoff, and there will be no growth either. Sales tax for City of Taco Bell will fall even more as smart consumers will go online and/or to low taxed Cities to buy their products. Expect some major retail businesses to file for bankruptcy in 2010.

- Tourism: Will go down as people are broke and don't have the money to spend. Secondly since when did Marin rely on tourist $$$.

- Clean technology: Solar industry will remain the same as there will be no capital to jumpstart this sector.

- Biotechnology: Marin's leading biotech entities are expanding and will continue to expand in 2010.

- Construction: Stimulus money and training programs will not provide short-term lift. It is the people who spends $$ on construction and consumers are broke, unemployed and can't afford to build anything. Major developers will not spend any $$ to construct either. Construction industry will go down further.

- Local Governments: Both City of Taco Bell and Novato will continue to go more red into the hole, and will do nothing to reform the pension program, layoff people, and/or live within the budget. One or both of these Cities will file for bankruptcy in 2010.

- County of Marin: Our political leaders will continue to support their idiotic pet projects (Marin Clean Energy, etc) and will drag County into deeper budgetary crises. County revenues will decline and there will be some major shake up in the County administration.

- Golden Gate District/MMWD: They will continue to bring up excuses to raise fees to justify their fat pension/overtime. Expect fees/tolls, fines, etc to go up in 2010-2011.

- Illegal Aliens: City of Taco Bell with the cronie Major Al Bozo will continue to provide shelter to illegal aliens, crime will go higher in San Rafael, population of illegals will go even higher, and illegals will be reaching closer to DT San Rafael for employment/food.

Happy 2010 to all of you.

Both of the above posts are dead on. I especially like the point of city councils robbing from the taxpayers, like reducing fire and police services. They have failed us, the ones who elected them. Now they try to make up by cutting the services we depend on. No thanks, I don't want my policeman or fireman to be a phone agent stationed in India, because that's what Moron County is coming to!

If you are tithing to the CC what you should KNOW:

http://cnsnews.com/news/article/59466

On Dec. 23, the Catholic bishops also wrote a letter of support to Rep. Luiz Gutierrez (D-Ill.) for a bill he co-sponsored -- the Comprehensive Immigration Reform for America’s Security and Prosperity Act of 2009 (H.R. 4321). The bishops called the bill “an important first step in the legislative process.”
 
The nearly-700-page bill includes an “earned legalization” program, more often referred to as a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants. It would allow about 100,000  unemployed immigrants into the country each year in an attempt to reduce the backlog of visa applications. It also would exempt immediate relatives from the annual cap on visas. Gutierrez said immigrants have born the brunt of blame for various domestic problems, especially unemployment, and he quoted the Bible to describe their plight.

“In fact,” Rep. Gutierrez said on Dec. 15 when he introduced his bill,“we all have learned something from our religious leaders, who have reminded us of these words from the good book: ‘You have heard it said,‘An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth’; but I say unto you, whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.’”

Continuation:

"The quotation, which varies slightly by translation, appears in the gospels of Matthew and Luke.
 
“I believe our immigrant community has turned so many cheeks that our heads are spinning like tops,” Gutierrez concluded.
 
Despite the religious bent to the latest immigration-reform push, a recent poll from Zogby International shows that Catholics are largely out of step with the views of their leaders on the issue. Conducted in the last two weeks of November 2009 and released in December, the Zogby poll shows that Catholics believe there are too many illegal immigrants in the United States and oppose a pathway to citizenship."

YES THEY ARE OUT OF TOUCH!!!!

They're doing it, in most CA cities and counties! Downsizing line staff is now the Odumma 101 way of doing business. Administrators keep their jobs, and get a bigger shovel to dig the bigger hole!
