Melissa Etheridge is joining what is sure to be an enormous tax revolt on the part of the gay community in California in protest to the passage of Proposition 8. The proposition, in case you really don’t know about it, places a ban on gay marriage in the state of California, seeking to define marriage as being between only a man and a woman.
Voters in California have no idea what kind of trouble they’re about to cause in the form of tax revolt, especially with Governor Schwarzenneger’s proposed state income tax hikes. This story will surely continue to develop.
Okay. So Prop 8 passed. Alright, I get it. 51% of you think that I am a second class citizen. Alright then. So my wife, uh I mean, roommate? Girlfriend? Special lady friend? You are gonna have to help me here because I am not sure what to call her now. Anyways, she and I are not allowed the same right under the state constitution as any other citizen. Okay, so I am taking that to mean I do not have to pay my state taxes because I am not a full citizen. I mean that would just be wrong, to make someone pay taxes and not give them the same rights, sounds sort of like that taxation without representation thing from the history books.
Okay, cool I don't mean to get too personal here but there is a lot I can do with the extra half a million dollars that I will be keeping instead of handing it over to the state of California.
