Election November 2016, Local Issues

I ranted about the issues (proposed tax levies) here, Election 2016, Local Issues, which you may read or not as it amuses you. Some of the demands for more of my money that concern me the most are:

17. Sylvania Local School District 5.7 mills, additional, operating expenses & permanent improvements, for continuing period of time.
Not just no, but Hell No!

Sylvania Schools "survey" - Looking at income tax

So the pre-levy survey is live on the Sylvania Schools website. It's a simple SurveyMonkey survey. Not sure who they've hired to do their PR for this go round, but if it's Mark Luetke and FLS, they are not getting their money's worth. They've tipped their hand about asking for a school income tax in Question 12:

12. You may be aware that Sylvania Schools over time have traditionally asked for community support via a property tax levy. In the future, if the district was to offer a different option to support our schools, which statement would you agree with most?

Sarah Palin the Republican?

Well the real Sarah Palin has surfaced with her tax the rich schemes. Seems she favor collectivism in Alaska's energy reserves. Her fellow Alaskans collected annual payments of some $1,200 a resident. Now the energy companies want it back! Sound familiar?

Quote from article:

If you make $50,000 per year, you pay:

House GOP slashes IRS enforcement budget, still demands IRS be infallable.

"The GOP-controlled House has slashed the budget for the Internal Revenue Service's tax enforcement division by $1.2 billion, a 25 percent cut that would mean fewer audits of taxpayers and make it more likely that people who cheat on their taxes will get away with it.

The House approved the cuts by voice vote after little debate Monday night as it took up a $21 billion spending bill that sets the IRS budget.

State Tax Cuts Don't Trickle Down

But the dramatic tax cutting doesn't appear to have done nearly as much for job growth as promised.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel says that Wisconsin ranked 35th of the 50 states in job growth during the first three years of Scott Walker's term, and dead last among its immediate neighbors, including, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan and Ohio.

Kansas hasn't fared much better. According to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, the state's rate of job growth has lagged the national average since Brownback's tax cuts took effect.

Republican Clownshoes: Boner sues Obama over NOT IMPLEMENTING OBAMACARE FAST ENOUGH!

You cannot make this shit up.

"House Republicans intend to sue the Obama administration for unilaterally delaying the employer responsibility provision of the Affordable Care Act, Politico reported on Thursday, in effect trying to speed up the implementation of the health care law.

The lawsuit will come after the administration twice delayed the provision — which requires employers with more than 50 employees to pay a fine if they don’t offer affordable quality coverage — citing complaints from firms that claimed they wouldn’t be ready to meet its requirement by 2014.

Gun Nuts Tell Other Gun Nuts to Knock It Off, They're Too Nuts

The nation’s staunchest defender of the Second Amendment has told gun activists in Texas who insist on carrying assault-style rifles in public places to knock it off.

In a statement issued late last week, the National Rifle Association (NRA) called out so-called “open carry” groups in Texas that have been frightening restaurant customers and motorists by approaching them while carrying AK-47s and AR-15s.

The NRA applauded Texas for a “robust gun culture,” but noted that a number of activists had “crossed the line from enthusiasm to downright foolishness.”

Hey everyone, DTOM thinks ONLY HOMEOWNERS pay for school levies!

Here it is, the crowning moment of stupid: http://swampbubbles.com/20140518/what-do-you-know-about-vietnam#comment-...

That's right, in DTOM-world, commerical property doesn't get assessed for school levies and landlords don't ever pass on the costs to renters.

Everyone laugh at the dumbass!

Right-wing Pussies like DTOM, Fred, Galt, GZ, and MikeyA To #OccupyDC Starting Today

Yes it's true, tens of millions of Teabaggers are going to magically appear in DC today and take over the government by camping out and demonstrating. You know, like #Occupy but with old fat nutjob armed Teabaggers riding their Rascal scooters around and waving their misspelled, racist signs.

Senate Liberals Go Ape$#!t, End Up Admitting Taxes Are Too High

Senate Democrats Introduce Tax Cut Bill for Workers
http://www.accountingtoday.com/news/senate-democrats-introduce-tax-cut-b...

"Senate Budget Committee Chairman Patty Murray, D-Wash., and two other prominent Senate Democrats introduced legislation Wednesday to update the Tax Code to help workers and families keep more of what they earn, but also double the penalty on tax preparers who do not follow the Internal Revenue Service’s due diligence requirements for claiming the Earned Income Tax Credit."

54 SEPARATE VOTES to repeal Obamacare, here's the list

What's the definition of insanity again?

Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

Dear "Fiscally Conservative" "Republicans" on SB: Please tell me how the taxpayer dollars spent by the House GOP in pursuit of their futile goal have NOT been wasted and are in fact completely justified.

More BS Obamacare stories, brought to you by the Koch Bros.

http://talkingpointsmemo.com/dc/koch-obamacare-ad-politifact-false

Americans For Prosperity is struggling to find a way to attack Obamacare that fits the facts.

The Koch-funded conservative activist group is spending millions of dollars on TV ads aimed at undermining the Affordable Care Act and unseating Democratic senators who voted for it in their 2014 reelection fights.

But the ads keep falling flat upon examination of their claims.

Wisconsin seeks to give surplus back to voters

Remember the days when Wisconsin was facing a 3 BILLION dollar deficit. Gov. Scott Walker was elected and the unions tried to recall him.

In his first year Gov. Walker took the 3 billion dollar deficit and turned it into a 300 million dollar surplus.

The impossible has happened again.

Some thoughts about those electric car rechargers downtown

Prompted by a friend, I went online and also downtown to investigate these things. There are 3 stations installed on N Superior St across from First Merit Bank.

http://www4.toledoblade.com/Automotive/2013/09/19/City-to-install3-charg...

The article claims charge cost is included in the parking fee. (Each station also has a parking meter.) But the parking fee advertised at the meter is the same as every other meter: $1/hr.

So does this mean people are recharging their cars there for free? Parking cost is a constant.

Poetic justice. IRS UNION WANTS OUT OF OBAMACARE

This is too funny. The IRS Employee UNION (those people who wanted Obamacare) that represents the IRS (those people who collect the Obamacare tax) WANTS OUT OF OBAMACARE.

From the Forbes Magazine website:

IRS Employees Union Is 'Very Concerned' About Being Required To Enroll In Obamacare's Health Insurance Exchanges

Corruption in Toledo? Nah.

I don't normally go to lib blogs like this, but they're attacking one of their own. Get the popcorn!

"The latest scandal to break involve 7 of her top political advisers (who also happen to work in her Auditor’s Office). They were all given huge raises totaling $131,147.73 out of the county budget. And most of these were right after these advisers worked on her 2010 election. Coincidence... I don’t think so. That’s an average raise of over $18,000! A politician who is using her elected office as a way to dole out cushy jobs to her political staff is not someone we can afford to promote to the Mayor’s office.
