Fashionable, but unable to tell fact from fiction

How I'm voting tomorrow

I'm voting no on all state and Alameda County propositions.

Things worth calling out:
Prop 19, I feel, is an experiment that was tried with the Harrison Narcotics Act. In addition, people are already irritated with cigarette smoke in public. What on Earth makes people think that pot smoke will be better?

Anything that levies bonds with our current financial state is utter silliness.

I don't trust an "independent" appointment of citizens any more than I trust politicians to handle redistricting. That's money paid out to cronies and a process which doesn't improve our current method.

Measure F (Alameda County) levies a tax on automobiles for "road improvements" which fund buses, pedestrian safety, and electric vehicle plug-in stations. Pedestrian safety is code for "more signals" which stops you from being able to go from point A to point B. Paying someone more to use my car so that I can use the bus is ridiculous. Hybrids and EVs are ineffective transportation.

In fact, the people who are conned into spending more for a non-traditional automobile are the only auto drivers who benefit and at the expense of those of us who saw through the scam.
