Look up the word “moron” in your dictionary and you will see a picture of Jerry Brown — some editions will have a pictture of Darrell Steinberg. These Democrat idiots know full well that a fee and a tax are the same thing but they blatantly disregard the will of the people and levy this “fire fee” anyway. They know they will lose the pending lawsuit but in the meantime they get the use of our money knowing a lawsuit will take years to settle. On top of that this fee (tax) goes into the general fund and not to Cal Fire so Brown and his cronies can waste it any way they want just like they have wasted much of the state’s revenues.

It is interesting that the Democrat loonies choose this fee (tax) be applied to rural counties in California. The demographics of these counties is primarily Republican so Brown et al finds another way to soak those who disagree with him. If this is not his agenda why not have a crime fee (tax) for places like Stockton, Oakland (he also failed there as mayor), Richmond, Vallejo, and many other high crime communities? Of course this is not considered because that would have an effect on his base. He also says that our schools are in desperate need of revenue so why not use this same approach for all parents of children ages 4 thru 18 — apparently he feels that he doesn’t need two-thirds majority, just impose $150 fee per child and school funding is solved. Again, that would never be considered because again that has an impact on his liberal base. It is also interesting that liberals always say that they are the ones who “care” about seniors and Republicans do everything they can to hurt our senior citizens. However rural California has a significant senior population on fixed incomes. They chose to move to areas that were more affordable, had less crime and a slower pace of life. This one act of imposing a fee (tax) without the mandated two-thirds required vote shows the Democrats’ true colors.

They think they are above the law and we are just serfs. If this fee (tax) is not paid within 30 days of the mailing date there is a 20 percent penalty per month. If a private business did this they would be criminally prosecuted. Anyone who is subject to this fee (tax) especially senior citizens who votes for the proposed tax increases in November just might see their picture in dictionaries under the word “moron.”

Slightly different topic but under the same general theme of taxes, I saw a great bumper sticker the other day. “If you want free birth control put a picture of Nancy Pelosi in your bedroom.”

Rose, look up the word “sarcasm” in the dictionary — it is under the letter “S” about two-thirds of the way thru — if you hit “T” go left a little and you can find it.
