Say No to the Oakland Zoo countywide "Build a Theme Park" parcel tax
Original post made by Taxation w/o representation on Jul 25, 2012
They plan to use the funds for a boondoggle theme park according to this web link. See this information here -- Web Link
The Oakland Zoo does not have an elected board of directors which means such a parcel tax would fund an organization with no actual elected members. If that isn't taxation without representation, I don't know what is.
The draft text of the measure even has language saying that the funds from the parcel tax will be used to defend the many lawsuits that will surely be filed regarding this measure.
Say No to this tax measure!

But..."It's for the Chiiiiiiiiildren!" How can you be so selfish?
Sorry, just had to make that comment before some do-gooder, numbnut said it and really means it.

I always vote NO for new taxes/fees. The government is already too big. For once I'd like to see a ballot initiative to REDUCE or ELIMINATE existing taxes/fees so that I could actually vote YES.
