That SHITASS(as my dear departed grandmother used to say) Jerry Brown!

California Legislature votes to raise gas taxes, vehicle fees by $5.2 billion a year for road repairs and transit - LA Times
That sonofabitch just raised the tax on diesel fuel ANOTHER 20c/gallon, plus a 12c increase on fuel across the board.
So starting next year we're gonna be paying another fucking THIRTY-TWO-CENTS a gallon on diesel fuel.
Can someone explain HOW the fuck that piece of shit got elected AGAIN as governor?
He TOTALLY shit the bed his first time around back in the '70s, and IIRC some idiotic NoCal city elected him mayor, and he drove that place into the ground, again IIRC, getting himself fired in the process.
And now he's been elected governor for two-consecutive terms!
It's like the idiots in D.C. re-electing Marion Barry, even after he got popped for taking bribes-AND- smoking fricken crack cocaine on CAMERA.
There's never been a greater need for an IQ test to get your voter registration card.
I used to like living in California, but since its conversion to Kalifornistan I'm really starting to dislike it
EDIT:
Hey, I just noticed my original title was edited. I guess it was too F-bomb-ish for even our 'new and improved' free-speech-'o-fied forum..
But 'That Jerry Brown' quite frankly sounds ghey so I changed what I could, but this time I didn't say anything my grandmother wouldn't say

I'm gonna seriously consider getting a buddy to split the cost of a six-hundred-gallon tank, and make bi-monthly runs to AZ for fuel.
Anybody know what the bio-fuel rating on our motor is?

He's your elected official! What did you do to get the other guy elected? You folks in CA elect some of the whackiest people.

I live in CA many moons ago (never again!). Back then Senator Hiakawa proposed an additional $2 a gallon fuel tax. He actually said that rich people could afford it. And poor people didn't have cars, and it wouldn't matter to them.

Not that it really matters but...

That would be if using imperial gallons = U.K.

A US gallon of diesel weighs 7.1089/gallon so 4,265.34 plus trailer weight so even more doable.

'Wacky' is one thing, but we have a seriously corrupt state government.
There was one state congressman(or whatever the hell they call them) that was constantly going after AR's/AKs etc.
Turns out dude was running guns either to or from the Philippines, which brings me to good 'ole Diane Feinstein( of course from San Francisco)> We all know she's been going after firearms forever, but back in the '90s she Straw-purchased a weapon for her nephew(I wanna say)

Not sure but he was a big time anti gun CA Democrat and got busted running illegal guns (he is the definition of hypocrite)...he thought only the CA overlords are above the laws they write I guess...

California is it's OWN FAULT. Jerry Brown was TERRIBLE when he was voted in the FIRST time. Jerry Brown is even WORSE now and it BLOWS MY MIND that the majority of the liberal ASSHOLES don't EVER LEARN THEIR LESSON!

I mean, seriously, Californians (The liberal ones) are fucking STUPID!!!

You couldn't PAY ME to live their. Although beautiful, CA has the WORSE Taxes, GUN LAWS, police, HYPOCRITICAL politicians.... you NAME it. FUCK CA.

I don't feel sorry for ANYONE who chooses to live there. Forced to live there is another story....

Not quite right. Here are the details (which still suck don't get me wrong):


Quote:
$24.4 billion by raising the gasoline excise taxes 12 cents per gallon, or 43 percent above the current rate of 27.8 cents starting Nov. 1.

- $7.3 billion by raising the current 16-cent-a-gallon diesel excise tax by 20 cents - a 125 percent increase starting Nov. 1.

- $3.5 billion by increasing the state diesel sales tax from 9 percent to 13 percent starting Nov. 1.
- An annual vehicle fee ranging from $25 for cars valued at under $5,000, to $175 for cars worth $60,000 or more
So it's a 24 cents a gallon increase for those of us who burn diesel. Not 32 cents a gallon. Plus, the extra per yearly fee of course.

Born and raised and California. Plan to be out within another couple years at most. Love the scenery and being close to a lot of entertainment but agree with you 100% on everything you said. Like I don't even disagree completely with some of the policies they have in place but they are just wayyy too extreme.
Diesel is usually a bit cheaper over here than gas but guess not anymore. Just more motivation to get out of this state

People want free stuff and special treatment. My 1s quesion is always, where is the money? No money, Politics is all talk; salesmanship to high heavens. There is a mass migration from Illinois, New York and California. Asked one if them on a gas station, why they are leaving. The reply was, tired of been poor. Pleaces they are moving to name a few, Dallas, Austin, Houston, Colorado Springs and pretty much all major cities in Florida. While I was at the Caves of the Winds in Colorado. Our tour guide, she was pretty vocal about the taxation in Colorado Springs.

Well... Like the iron lady used to say.

It is a beautiful place to live, stuck here because of family and a job that pays very well and not available to me anywhere other than CA. That said, once retirement gets here (couple more years only) I'll be lobbying the wife to sell everything and move out.
