I’m going to vote AGAINST the park and the school taxes. Because I obviously do not want nice parks in our community, and I hate children and education.
I’m going to vote FOR the park and the school taxes, because I obviously have too much money and this won’t cost any more than a few cups of coffee each month.
See, voting on things like this — for or against — doesn’t boil down to simplistic thoughts like that. And I hate when people try to portray a NO vote as a vote against children, or education, or parks. And also hate when people try to portray a YES vote as a socialist move that does nothing more than line the pockets of bureaucrats.
I’m not certain yet how I plan to vote. All I ask of fellow voters (and people who bitch and complain but don’t vote) is that they don’t try to denigrate and demean other people for voting opposite them.
There’s an interesting contest underway now in Cascade County between several men who want to the Sheriff…and my wife just found this nifty old promotional card for a Sheriff from a while back. How many of you remember Barry Michelotti?
Even better – the back of the card contained the complete list of Montana counties and license plate numbers, along with the county seats and distance from Great Falls – very cool!
