5. jesus fucking christ
Do you have ANY IDEA how high property taxes are for post-Prop 13 people?? New homeowners are SCREWED if they want to buy, because of the BLATANT unfairness of the property tax system in CA!

You can move next door to someone who has owned their house since the 60's, and they are paying maybe $300 a YEAR, whereas the new homeowner may have to choke up $10,000 or MORE. That is the result of the faux populist tax revolt that gripped the state in the late 70's.

We aren't fucking spoiled, we're taxed DISPROPORTIONATELY. It widens the gap between the haves and have-nots, and causes the revenue to falter, which is why they state government is in a morass.

Most of us here accept a higher cost of living to live in paradise, but once it jumps into UNFAIR territory, we're going to bitch, and loudly at that.

Spoiled my fucking Zomby ASS.
