These signs are going up with propaganda on them but no real information is out there regarding what this thing is. They want you to attend an information meeting at some local elementary instead of posting the info online.

What is it exactly? What will it cost me? Is it another tax thing because I can already tell you I'm voting no if so. 9.1% sales tax is already too high.

Seriously, I don't know about the props yet, but I do know Vail School District wants a budget overwrite and perhaps that's what this 404 is about, particularly since they want you to go to a school. And sure, where else is it gonna come from but your pockets?!

Yeah between the city of Tucson asking for another sales tax bump (9.6% anyone?) and now Vail asking for more money... I am sorry but they might want to do a really, really thorough audit and figure out where all that money went.

I'm paying my share and more already. Pass.

I know. It's getting to be outrageous! And what do you get in return? A big, fat, nothing! Yesterday I came back from a little road trip in Northeastern AZ. You should see the roads there! We can only dream of them! Granted, a lot of it was reservation land, so I don't know how road maintenance is funded there...

Well, if you know there are always available pockets to raid (read: sheeple voting FOR these props), why wouldn't you spend like a drunk sailor...?! I know I would! I don't care for national elections anymore, but I make damn sure I vote on the props!

Normally I am pretty much uncaring about these things but since we reached the California-style 9.1% sales tax I will definitely be showing up at the polls to vote any more tax increases down.

That and using Amazon to buy any non-perishable food/etc I possibly can. (No tax and free shipping)

Ha, never thought of that! It won't work for me, but it's a good idea nonetheless.

Actually, wait a minute... food is not taxed anyway...

It's taxed in Phoenix.

Hopefully that Safeway will open up for you in Vail. They are now saying 2012....
Welcome to The Harpel Company Inc. - Mercado del Lago - Planned Safeway Anchored Center
(Not that that has anything to do with Prop 404).
