In Deep Blue Ventura County, Climate Tax Dies A Hard Death

Ventura County, California, is just north of the Los Angeles area, with the two biggest cities being Ventura and Oxnard, right on the Pacific Ocean. They have been yammering about Future Doom from ‘climate change’ for decades. This is a county that went for Hillary Clinton 61.6% to Trump’s 32.8%, and always votes Democrats. So, a climate tax would be something they’d want, forcing themselves to pay for their own carbon footprints, right?

Climate change tax proposal dies after poll shows limited support

A proposal to raise the sales tax rate in Ventura County to address climate change, fire protection and other concerns died Tuesday after county supervisors concluded the voters were unlikely to pass it.

The Ventura County Board of Supervisors decided against proceeding with the November ballot measure after polling showed 63% of likely voters supported a quarter percent increase in the sales tax to fund the programs. The sales tax totals 7.25% in most areas of the county.

The 63% approval number was less than the major show of support Supervisors Linda Parks and Steve Bennett were seeking for the measure that would need a two-thirds vote to pass in the election. The tax would have raised an estimated $35.8 million annually until ended by the voters.

Wow, a quarter percent increase! And could only get 63% to agree to it? Why not go big? How about a 1% sales tax increase? Why are these Warmists so afraid to spend their own money? Oh, right, because while most people agree with Doing Something in theory, in practice most do not want to spend more than $10 a month on Hotcoldwetdry stuff.

    Sort of not so surprising since undefeated Trump we are looking at possible 20% unemployment while the stock market is down over 30%
    Will you be closing stores? Will employees continue to receive pay ?

    • formwiz says:

      Who says 20% unemployment?

      Another one of those let’s-hope-the-worst-case-comes-true Fake News articles?

      And the market can come back.

      Funny how you don’t want to talk about how, when given a chance, Lefties don’t want to practice what they preach.

  2. John says:

    Teach
    You always expect others to commit 110% to their politics
    But
    After 9/11 you didn’t
    You didn’t enlist did you ?

    • Nighthawk says:

      What did YOU do?

    • formwiz says:

      Did you?

    • gitarcarver says:

      This has to be one of the dumbest deflections in John’s long history of deflections.

      It is absolutely amazing to see the hate from the left.

      Then again, all they have is hate.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        All The gitarcarver and his far-right brethren have is hate.

        Actually what John did was point out the hypocrisy on the right.

        • formwiz says:

          Says the Lefty who tried to con everybody how he served in ‘Nam when he didn’t.

          All Jeffery L Keene has is lies.

          And pretty lame ones at that.

        • Kye says:

          There’s plenty of hypocrisy to go around for everyone but I suggest you manage the beam in your own eye before you point at others.

          And when it comes to hate the left cornered the market or don’t you read things on the net?

          Like this filthy Democrat/communist twat:
          “Democrat councilwoman for the city of Denver Candi CdeBaca stated from her government official Twitter account that she stands in “solidarity” with someone who posted that if they become infected with the coronavirus they will attend as many Trump rallies as possible to infect supporters of President Trump.
          The original Tweet, now deleted, read,
          For the record, if I do get the coronavirus I’m attending every MAGA rally I can.
          Councilwoman CdeBaca’s response: “#solidarity Yaaaas!!,” followed by a conga line of enthusiastic emojis.

          CdeBaca is a straightforward communist who has proclaimed her desire to impose Marxism “by any means necessary.” Unsurprisingly, she supports Bernie Sanders, who won yesterday’s primary in Colorado.

          Republican National Committee Rapid Response Director Steve Guest was correct when he described “the depths to which Democrats are sinking to politicize coronavirus” as “disgusting.” He might also have said, “revealing.”

          I have several items like this about the hate of the left. Elwood, communists hat Christians love. Just because Christians aren’t perfect does not mean they aren’t morally right. Communists and socialists start out with envy and finish with lining people up against a wall. That’s hate Elwood.

          Trump 2020 Toss out all those who hate Trump more than they love America

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Ms. CdeBaca will pay at the next election, no doubt.

            But you’ll need more evidence to prove that libs are more hateful than cons.

            The Colorado primary was Mar 3, not yesterday.

            Conservatives are preternaturally cruel and selfish. How else can one explain what erupts from that cauldron of hate known as conservatism?

            Do conservative Christians love Muslims? Atheists? Chinese? Mexican children? Jews? The homeless? Prisoners? Welfare recipients? The disabled? Liberals? Socialists? Rappers?

        • Jl says:

          Really? I don’t recall conservatives, nor anyone, demanding that other people enlist in the military after 9-11. I recall demands for military action, but not for enlistment. I do hear everyday, though, of doomers demanding that others give up their use of fossil fuels.

        • gitarcarver says:

          …hypocrisy …

          “I dunna tink dat word means what you tink it means.”

          The hatred of the left is now palatable and every day we see more and more of it.

          After all, it is all the left has.

    • Kye says:

      On 9/11 I was fifty years old but I did enlist in 1968 and volunteered for Vietnam….3 tours. How about you, pinko?

      • formwiz says:

        In his case, it’s like last year’s 4th of July where he claimed he was invited to his highly diversified block’s party, but spent all day here nattering at anybody who would listen.

  3. ben says:

    The liberal Dems NEVER want to shoulder responsibilities or costs for the crap they want others to pay for. Anything they don’t like must be banned, and anything they want must be made mandatory.

  4. formwiz says:

    All Edward Sibley Dutcher has are lies. And hate. And insecurity.

    All Jeffery L Keene has is a lack of even lame comebacks when his bluff is called.

    not if you look at the comment boards of any Lefty blog.

    That’s why they’re so often shut down.

    I’ll see you and I’ll raise you.

    Who was it shot Steve Scalise?

    Democrat former President Bill Clinton, when asking Sen. Ted Kennedy for his endorsement of Hillary Clinton, said of Obama: A few years ago, that boy would have been serving us coffee

    In an interview, liberal activist and entertainer Harry Belafonte, said of General Colin Powell, There are those slaves who lived on the plantation, and there were those slaves who lived in the house. You got the privilege of living in the house if you served the master to exactly the way the master intended to have you serve him.

    He also called Condi Rice a house slave.

    Conservatives are preternaturally cruel and selfish. How else can one explain what erupts from that cauldron of hate known as conservatism?

    Sounds like it’s Lefties who are preternaturally cruel and selfish. How else can one explain what erupts from that cauldron of hate known as Leftism?

    FIFY

    Do conservative Christians love Muslims? Atheists? Chinese? Mexican children? Jews? The homeless? Prisoners? Welfare recipients? The disabled? Liberals? Socialists? Rappers?

    I wasn’t aware rappers were an identifiable religious or national group. And Christians love Moslems and Atheists more than they get in return. Christians don’t call Jews fu(king Jew bastards.

    Hate to inform you, but many Christians are Mexican children and Chinese.

    As for the homeless(I presume you mean bums), prisoners, or welfare recipients, most of the outreach in this country comes from Christians. Your average Lefty expects government to do that.

    On somebody else’s dime, of course.

    As for the disabled, I don’t recall Lefties visiting hospitals and nursing homes on a regular basis. Thos are the people the Lefties want to die.

    Of course we do , Elwood. We’re not the hateful selfish bastards you are. We can actually separate hating the sin from hating the person. With you bastards the person IS the sin. That’s why you can’t forgive. That’s why you can’t forget. That’s why you have to force your agenda on others.

    Leftists created the holocaust, invented the gulag and murdered at least 150 million people(so far). Leftists support the murder of babies and the spread of perversions rather than helping those with psycho-sexual disorder. Leftists hate America, Freedom and Individualism. You probably don’t even own a flag Elwood but if you do it’s for burnin’ not wavin’. You are so full of hate you cannot EVER admit you’re wrong. That’s what makes you weak!

    Yeah, tell us all about how we “hate” and you killers are all fuzzy bears.

    Trump 2020 Keep America Strong!
