Recent poll on changes to Proposition 13 is not what it appears

Recent poll on changes to Proposition 13 is not what it appears

Prop 13 Poll Question Not About Split Roll By Joel Fox Advocates for a split roll property tax probably hailed the results of the Field Poll question about business property changing ownership.

Agree With Me Or Die

By Gregory J. Welborn   Admittedly, this title is an exaggeration, but only in order of magnitude not in principle.  Last week’s sacking of Mozilla CEO, Brendan Eich, should demonstrate without any possible confusion to all Americans – the danger facing this country from the Left.
