The Santa Monica Utility Bill Rate Increase Proposal Scam

The Santa Monica Daily Press asks:
"Do you support rate increases on your utility bills to restore fund balances to healthy levels? How much are you willing to pay?"

No. This is a typical bumbling bureaucrat and power-seeking political play, trying to take advantage of the stupidity and mathematical incompetence of boobus santamonicus.

There is NO necessity to increase rates because, generally, rates are a percentage. A given percentage yields MORE when the base increases. Simple, but obviously the rulers of the fascist mini-state of Santa Monica know that even that simple concept is too much for Santa Monica simpletons to understand.

It's similar to the sales tax rate increase and the "service" tip expectation rate increase scams that most of the sheeple have accepted.

(In case you don't understand, the "rationale" for these increases is that because prices, expenses, living costs, etc., are increasing, that the PERCENTAGE also has to increase, ignoring the fact that the original percentages will yield more because they are calculated on those same prices, expenses, living costs, etc.)

See also The Rule of 72

How Much Willing to Pay?:
None, zero, nada, null, nichts, cero, zed, ninguna...

Simple Solution to Promenade Noise Pollution

A simple solution to the Santa Monica Promenade competing performers noise pollution problem: NO AMPLIFIERS. PERIOD! That means no amplified guitars, horns, drum machines, carney barker microphones, whatever. That also includes quieting kiosks, carts, etc., selling hats, "dance" music, etc., who also seem to have a compulsion to add their recorded noise pollution. It is AUDIO SPAM!

There is supposedly some sort of decibel level regulation. It is useless. It is obviously not enforced. Probably not enforceable.

Sitting in a patio, diners/drinkers are subjected to several conflicting and overlapping performances, mostly no talent, and the diners/drinkers have to shout to converse with their table mates.

Public Education -- Subsidizing the Spawn of the Irresponsible

Education is NOT the responsibility of a state, a local schoolboard, or a Hillary's village. It is the PARENTS' responsibility.

It's not up to us who have elected NOT to contribute to the population explosion to subsidize the spawn of biological clock ticking bimbos and macho men.

Subsidizing dropping of litters of rugrats leads to more overpopulation, more resource depletion, more pollution, more crime, and -- more wars over resources, whether on a world level over oil, or on a local level over parking, housing, beach access, etc.

Qualities Necessary for Santa Monica College President

The Santa Monica Daily Press asks:
"What qualities should the next president of SMC possess and what issues will he or she need to address?"

Qualities Needed Answer:
Bi-sexual, hermaphrodite, liberal, politically correct, "person of color". And insofar as the qualities of stupidity and ignorance are not included in the qualities of liberalism and political correctness, those qualities should also be included in the necessary qualities.

Issues to Address Answer:
The main issue to be addressed is privatizing and self-funding the school so that taxpayers are not coerced into supporting the spawn of others, whether from Santa Monica itself or from across the border.
