Ten million dollars buys a lot of slick paper.

Oh, look, happy yuppies who won’t ever have to worry about driving into St. Louis or Kansas City when there are no public services because all the shopping, cultural, sporting, and governmental venues will be shut down anyway! Awesome!

Uh, try, let the person with the fattest checkbook decide.

Let’s have a little logic lesson. The mail piece states:

…Yes on A lets voters decide if they want to prohibit new local earnings taxes in their cities and towns.

Under existing state law, new local earnings taxes could be imposed in other Missouri cities and towns. A Yes vote on Prop A prohibits the politicians from imposing any new local earnings taxes on working people and businesses in Missouri…

Uh, what’s a politician? Does this mean that unelected people in politics, you know, people running for office but not yet elected get to decide? Just asking. Or, is that elected officials who were, you know, elected by the voters in their jurisdiction? Isn’t that how it’s supposed to work?

“…Yes on A lets voters decide if they want to prohibit new local earnings taxes in their cities and towns…”

Bullshit. This initiative lets other voters across the state decide what cities and towns across the state can do when it comes to an earnings tax. There is a difference.

These folks think Missouri voters are stoopid. And if we let them get away with this we are.
