Their Solution for Schools: 1% INCOME TAX on PORTLAND!!!!

January 6, 2006

  1. This just in from Dave Lister who knows folks in the big confab today looking at ways to feather the nests of the educrats at the school system instead of educating our kids. Their answer increasing the business income tax…AND…wait for it:


    This after the city just gave $200,000 to the hippies at Tryon Creek
    This after the metro just gave those same hippies $300,000
    This after the schools had to pay off Steve Goldschmidt to the tune of $600,000
    This after the schools refuse to close even MORE schools due to diminishing numbers of students
    This after the city paid off protesters to the tune of $300,000 for getting pepper sprayed after they refused to get out of the street and impeding law abiding citizens
    This after they oversaw tax abatements to wealthy Pearl District (and other) districts
    This after building a tram for OHSU–against the wishes of the citizenry which has zoomed up from $15 million to $45 million
    This after the water bureau pissed away two computer systems
    This after the city has proposed taxing real estate purchases to give to the poor
    This after the city has proposed taxing the internet and cell phone
  2. Expansion of the convention center and moving forward for plans for hotel
