Oregonians vote for higher taxes
Is this a sign of a new trend? I'm amused at how many news stories try their best to ignore the class implications. The line I keep seeing is that the vote signifies that the public is in fact willing to vote in higher taxes for themselves. My guess is that the number of wealthy people who voted for this are as rare as spotted owls with gum disease. Facing massive unemployment, it looks like Oregonians came to a very rational decision. I'm sure the talking heads are now busy on every TV station trying to "educate" the public that if the rich people get in a huff and all move away, the trees will stop growing and the sheep will cease to procreate.
