I am sure a purist or two will take me to task over the Vehicle License Fee article. As stated in the article, the revenue raised over 10 years will amount to approximately $36 million. If you do the math, you will see that results in a few dollars for the average family. So why is it a big deal?
It is a big deal because it is just another way to nickle and dime us. Those nickels and dimes add up at the end of the year.
How many times have we been told it’s only another penny in gas tax or a half cent sales tax? What do we have now? We have the most expensive gasoline in the 48 contiguous states. No, it’s not all because of the constant tax increases, but some of it is due to that.
It is also a big deal because Supervisor Bob ran as a Republican. Republicans don’t raise taxes. Period. Or at least it should be “period.”
A few dollars here and there is nothing to those like Supervisor Bob. Just look at my most recent article and you can see how insignificant it is compared to many of the rest of us. I’m tired of taxes being raised.
On another subject, someone wrote me a little while ago to say they thought that I was being disrespectful to Lovingood for calling him “Supervisor Bob.” Respect is a two-way street, but that is another whole subject.
Lovingood has earned the “Supervisor Bob” moniker from me in many different ways. Maybe he should speak with his staff and find out why. I wonder if he knows.
Then, of course, there has been the crap I’ve had to put up with from Joseph Brady on Supervisor Bob’s behalf. There has been veiled threats, a lot of gossip, trying to cause issues with my friends, etc.
So, ya gonna act like an ass, you’re gonna get treated like one. He hates being called Bob. I don’t like what his staff and Joey are spreading about me. So, “Supervisor Bob” it is.
