"Binge Taxation" continues on Spring Street
Was that the unspoken chant of yesterday "Taxation, err, Revenue Day" at City Hall?
What new "recipes of taxation" did our City Council come up with to feed the appetite of the "Fiscal Monster on Spring Street"?
The Daily News has some for your review (and resulting revulsion) in today's edition of the "Moldy Green Sheet".
Have a "Dacha" that measures out to over 5,000 square feet of proletariat pleasure? Leave it to the "Zorro Marxist" to express his disdain for your lifestyle by proposing an "rich tax" on your electrical usage.
Need urgent help from Police or Fire?? That 911 phone call is going to cost you a few pesos if some on the Council have their way, that cost may include lawsuit fees if this goes forward.
But for one moment lets channel the thoughts of our various Council members and create our own "Revenue Recipes" to feed the "Fiscal Beast on Spring Street".
"Flash Bulb Exposure Fee":
$5.00 "fee" for every flash from a city-owned camera use to record useless, symbolic photo-ops that take away tax payers salary time from true objective problem solving. $2.50 "fee" for all media who waste column inches in posting these ego-inflating images of self-importance.
"Spollcheck Fee for Bloggers"
Red Spot's "self-imposed fee" dedicated to the continuation of "bloggin discourse".
"Los Angeles Times Insider Fee"
$10.00 "fee" levee on the "WWG" for each posting on the inside happenings at the "OLD GREY HAG ON SPRING STREET". Potential "BIG" source of revenue.
"Fee for Fee Waivers"
$5,000 "fee" charged to the operation fund of the Councilperson who uses taxpayers dollars to offset costs for community events organized by "fiscal friends" of the respective council members.
"Spin fee for P.R. Spoke holes"
$100 "fee" for each "press release of spin" from the likes of Alatorre, Sugerman, Watkins, Home Depot, and any lobbyist who spin against the public interest.
"Fee for posting Bloggin retorts"
Just kidding........for now.
