The Metropolitan Transportation Commission(MTC)has proposed yet another tax. Drivers would be required to install a tracking device that would measure how far they drive then charged $.10 per mile. Per their website, the MTC has 19 commissioners and over 200 staff members "serving" at our expense.
If you oppose this tax, then contact Tom Bates (firstname.lastname@example.org) the commissioner "representing" cities of Alameda County. Better yet, vote against any new tax proposals until commissions like the MTC are disbanded.

So clingy is Staceleen's embrace of 'personal freedom' that she puts herself in opposition to things like govt gps tracking of autos, mandatory seat belts, and govt mandated child safety car seats. Well, she IS consistent. Like any narrowminded dolt who can't think for themselves, she grasps onto an ideology to think for her, no matter how inhumane, no matter how contrary to common sense and independent judgment, the ideology commands her 'thought'.
The ideology of Staceleen's choice, found in the writings of the fictional horror writer Ayn Rand, allows her to care for HER kids and not give two hoots about the kids of others. Her ideology demands her to opt for 'her personal freedom' over any child's or any thousands of children's general welfare. That, my friends, is a horror show of the worst sort.
We see the rigid defense of Republican positions and policies on the part of the mental midgets who so often twist anything into a criticism of Democrats: Romney, for example, doesn't need to reveal his tax returns because Obama hasn't revealed his law school transcripts, or his birth certificate, or his record of pot purchases when in high school. Here, however, with Staceleen, it goes beyond this. She doesn't want any govt imposition in HER life, even if the imposition saves thousands and thousands of lives. Because, you see, mandated child welfare seats are SOOOOOO oppressive for all of us freedom lovers. This is when embrace of an ideology becomes Staceleen's sickness.
Pushed to defend her sickness, she falls back on I AM KATHLEEN REUSGENUGGER and if you want to improve your child's chances of survival in event of car crash, go ahead; and if parents don't want to so improve their child's chances, well, heck, that's just fine,too. Which is to say: "I don't care about other people's kids, but only me and mine."
And there it is. Little Staceleen, weak ego personified, who needs to cling to an ideology in order to support her own infantile need for what she terms personal freedom. Oh, yeah, and exhausted of ideas, because her ideology only gives her a position to take, and actually disapproves of independent thinking, she tosses out some nonsense about Native Americans. Wow, that's trenchant! No, actually, I'm being sarcastic. What it is is pure narcissistic, small-minded, selfishness, aided and abetted by a pernicious ideology.
So, next time you're in the countryside and you see some yokel parent careening down a dirt road in his pickup with his kids jumping up and down in the back of the truck, be like Staceleen: Give that parent a thumbs-up for exercising their freedom to risk their kids' lives for the sake of opposing govt regulation.
PS We're talking about the same Staceleen who cares soooooo deeply about your child's education. Yeah, right.
