NO PARCEL TAX NECESSARY & PEOPLE ARE COMPLAINING ABOUT NOT NEEDING A TAX?
Original post made by doglover, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on May 10, 2009
We are so happy we can't stop wagging our tails.
Today we got real chicken as a special treat.
Doglover is celebrating because there's no need for the parcel tax. Doglover says the U.S. Calvary came to the rescue. We don't know what a calvary is, but we like it. Doglover says so of course we like it because we've had part of what makes a calvary in our dog food. Doglover says things we don't understand.
But doglover says there are things Doglover doesn't understand. There is no need for a parcel tax, but there are people who are complaining because it's not needed. They still want to pay the tax. .
Doglover says some taxes are necessary and they provide good things for all of us - police and fire protection, parks, clean streets and much more. We love fire fighters and police officers. They always smile at us and give us pats on the head. We love having beautiful parks where we can visit our friends and play catch the frisbee. We don't much like clean streets because dirty ones have food that the little people drop and sometimes we can get the food in our mouths before Doglover catches us and says NO. We've learned to swallow fast.
But the parcel tax isn't necessary, and if Doglover has to pay it, no more real chicken for us.
We don't understand. Why would anyone want to pay a tax when there's no need for the tax? That does not seem very smart.
Doglover said it isn't, but that smart people will vote NO on G.
We wish we could vote.
We love chicken.
