Sorry, folks, but taxes are what holds the republic together, and provides the services that we need. The real “kooks” are those who have driven the tax base down so low that we are near the bottom of the 50 states in terms of schools, fire and police protection, etc. California is the new Mississippi. Something for nothing is an idea which may come from paying too much attention to Fox “News” and/or Rush Limbaugh. They like to give all the breaks to the rich. Listen to them if you are rich. Otherwise, don’t let them ruin the state (and the country) just to provide breaks for their rich friends. They don’t really have your interests at heart. They are manipulating you. William D.
