Miley talks up taxes, regulations and still gets loud applause

Original post made on Oct 10, 2013

Alameda County Supervisor Nate Miley told members of the Rotary Club of Pleasanton last week that they may have to pay more taxes later next year and may have to develop state-approved commuter plans for their employees. Even so, he still got a generous round of applause from the Rotarians who invited him to speak.

He sounds like a socialist. He's probably for unions. He's probably against freedom. He's bad. He's really really bad. He's an idiot. They should fire him. Raising taxes on businesses is un-American. It's unconstitutional. Permit me to take a page out of Michel Backman's book and Bill O'Riley's book: We need Jesus to return to earth in order to make the state lower our taxes. We're in the final days!

Alameda county needs to raise our taxes in order to pay the very generous salaries to its employees.

According to the CA State Controller, this county has the 2nd-highest average salaries in the state. Also, county administrator Susan Muranishi gets paid more than $420,000 annually (that's not a typo), and she will get that for life.

Why the heck do people in this area keep putting these tax-and-spend jackasses in office? It truly is appropriate that the symbol of the Democrat Party is the jackass. Maybe since secession is in the air (far-north California and northeastern Colorado), it’s time for eastern Contra Costa and eastern Alameda counties to secede from the cesspool that is the western side of both counties that siphons our money away to support the welfare state.

Boo! So freedom to enjoy live in Pleasanton is OVER !! Truly SAD! He is so out of his element. Our burden is the county line jogged around to drag us into Alameda County. Logic would dictate Contra Costa South would include us. Why do we have to prop up financing for the rest of Alameda County.
No surprise the dummy has bought into to the air quality vs. cars propaganda. I will damn well drive my car where and how I want.
Sorry I missed it, I would have given the more appropriate Boos!

May I remind you that this is America and that there is no need to post all the drivel re: Miley.

He is after all another human being and a fellow American.

i rest my case...

What do we in the city of Pleasaton get from higher tax's?
The money is given to programs out side of our city. I'm OK with paying my share.
The money is then wasted on programs that do little to make things better. But they support some Dem action group that hires those who vote the party line.

I think Miley has a lot of qualifications for the job. Afterall he was elected to the Oakland City Council in 1990,1994, and 1998 and during this time Oakland's murder rate went through the roof. For his great efforts and accomplishments in this job the liberals elected him to District Supervisor and he has been in that position since 2001. A couple years back maybe less Pleasanton was added to his district when our previous Supervisor Scott Haggerty, known for costing us money in sexual harassment charges and picking fights with former members of the Oakand Raiders decided to take up with a female member of the Dublin City Council and moved out of this district. He I believe has been charged with accepting money or preferred treatment for his votes from real estate developers and will eventually settle out of court I am sure.

Now we have Miley whose charter is to make Alameda County into one. Oakland, Hayward, Fremont, Pleasanton etc are expected to be basically one and will be treated as such and to do this we will all pay more in taxes for less in services. Nice job folks and keep voted to slit your throats for voting liberal. Join the Libertarian party as it is your only option at this point.

Miley is right in step with the chief dictator Obama, who is on his way to "transform" this country to the way it should be, socialistic. Obama's father was a communist, all of his nurturing friends were anarchists, all of his appointees are socialists and he subscribes to the teachings of his mentor Zelinsky. There is no surprise here, this man and his minions want to destroy this country. Name one thing he has proposed or done that indicates otherwise!! As Dr. Ben Carson has recently restated, the absolute key to creating a socialist society is to first control healthcare, of which 1/6th of the population is engaged. The roster of information gathered on citizens is deep, and judging by the vindictave nature he has shown during this partial shutdown, it is a prelude of things to come. He calls those who want to follow our Constitution arsonists, anarchists, renegades, hostage takers, etc. It's time to call him what he really is, a dictator, a socialist dictator. He just loves getting in our presidential plane and flying around the world, and walking down that ramp to people bowing down. Miley and this man do not give a damn for what you want.
