Yet more dust ups out at Under the Dome on the Transfer Tax. A winger from afpnc (I think that's Americans for Prosperity, a right wing free-market fundamentalist
church group) is over there slinging hooey ... one of the anti-TT guys actually used the term "force a vote" to refer to a referendum on a Transfer Tax.
What???!!! Is he kidding? Force a vote?
Letting the citizens decide is now "forcing a vote?" ... of all the cockamamey rightwing b.s. I've ever heard, that's gotta take the big-fat-hooey cake.
Anglico posted a few blurbs in favor of the TT, but he needs a hand if you get time today.
Remind the afpnc dude of the 10:1 poll PPP just did.
And please inform the obviously uninformed gentleman that Johnston County builds schools better, faster and cheaper than anybody in the state (Americans for Prosperity says so, anyway) and we still can't keep up. We appreciate that the afpnc man has an arrogance problem, but why does he insist on insisting that he knows more about our county than we do.
We don't have a spending problem, my friend. We have a revenue flow v. population increase problem. Y'all who's children will be in trailers this year and the folks who dealt with the pain of the FIRST (to my knowledge) forced school reassignment here in Johnston last year know that by experience.
