Give one penny, they want two

I was reading in the June 16 paper where the City Council approved the fiscal 2017 budget where the city administrator stated that voters would be asked in August to approve the continue collection of sales tax of the titling of vehicles purchased out of state. He emphasized this was not a new tax but a continuation of an existing tax. I don't care what it is, a tax is a tax. If it expires, we need to let it expire. Once you give government at any level a penny, they want two. It's time to say no.

Call 1-800-RE-MOVE

I just read SpeakOut, nothing but transgenders. We need the phone number for those transgeder women. When a so-called transgender wants to fit into a woman's domain, have them call the number and we can come and remove their genitalia. Then it won't be a problem.
