    Being of the low-income I do not drive much and of course try as much as possible not to contribute to the tyranny of Jerry Brown’s corrupt -and much Gerrymandered government as they continually attack the CONSTITUTION. All the criminals love it here -the illegals and the TERRORISTS that pass as Mexican. There is a lot of difference in islam and Mexican. Then there are the drug-mafia etc. so Brown has a lot of criminal ilk backing him. The Assembly is also in the company of criminals as we see from them being called out on their behavior that sacks the taxpayers so they can use what was once state infrastructure improvements as robbery for self enrichment. Brown thinks he’s doing good but he’s nothing but a bad ,bad boy and deserves a trial just as BHO deserves a trial for extreme misconduct. It is SICKENING!

    These prices are for forty dollars a barrel for oil. There’s a big push ahead on the global market for seventy or one-hundred dollar a barrel oil. Watch the hair pulling and screaming if this occurs. I have a sneaky
    feeling the cabal in Sacramento was on to this because some taxes are based on a percentage curve.

    I am trying to get the tax repealed but people won’t sign the petition. They are apathetic, clueless, and ripe for the picking.
