California Taxes --Net Right DailyCalifornia Being Taxed Into the Poor House –Net Right Daily

(UT San Diego) Its now official, come July 01, California motorists will pay an additional 3.5 cents in taxes on gasoline thanks to a vote of 3-2 today by the state Board of Equalization, to increase the excise tax by about 10% from .36 cents a gallon to 39.5 cents a gallon.

On Tuesday I wrote here that a hike in the gas tax of 3.5 cents a gallon will mean that California motorists will be paying the highest gasoline taxes in the nation.

Finger in the Dike --Legal InsurrectionA Finger in the Dike –Legal Insurrection

(AP) The Obama Administration threatened to veto a Senate Republican plan that would give President Obama more authority and flexibility to find $85 Billion in spending cuts this year–the measure was intended to replace the automatic spending cuts otherwise known as “Sequestration” that is scheduled to kick-in tomorrow.

The Obama Administration says it instead backs a Democratic measure to replace the cuts with more taxes on job creators.

China Guards Pollution Data as State Secrets; Why’s the Obama Admin Collecting Parallel Info?

Deng Fei Wants You To Show Him Dirty River --ShanghaiistDeng Fei Wants China Netizens to Show Him a Dirty River –Shanghaiist

(Bloomberg/Businessweek) Public agitation within Beijing’s smogosphere–including campaigns by China Netizens and the Obama Administration which  in their infinite wisdom has decided that the American people believe, that its a good expenditure of taxpayers money to monitor China’s air quality during a period of apocalyptic scare mongering by ‘Hoax-n-Chains’ across the nation–I digress.

While the China regime has gradually released more data about pollution and for the first time acknowledged the existence of “Cancer Villages” (locations where the exposure to industrial chemicals has led to the elevated levels of cancer) during Chinese New Year, environmental journalist Deng Fei, who in 2009 posted a map online identifying the “Cancer Villages” launched the “Show Me a Dirty River Campaign” encouraging Netizens visiting their hometowns during the holiday, to  send in digital photos of polluted rivers, lakes and streams.

Such information is a closely guarded “state secret” in China pursuant of Article 14 which Beijing Attorney Dong Zhengwei recently found out when he recently requested the data from a government survey conducted in 2006 by the ‘Environmental Ministry’ by the China Regime which Dong has filed an appeal arguing its a “clear denial of the public’s right to know and right to monitor,” citing China’s dubious freedom of information regulations.

The Obama Administration like the China Regime, have remained silent on the full investigative report(s) but according to the Epoch Times parts of the Chinese report had been leaked to the public which appeared online recently, leading to the present inquiries of poisoned chemicals in the soil.

On the 28 August, 2011 I wrote here that U.S. clothing manufacturers have been accused of distributing products containing toxic chemicals made in China to suppliers in the United States.

Calif May Soon Have Highest Gas Taxes in U.S.

Gas Prices --Barracuda BrigadeRising Gas Prices –Barracuda Brigade

(Breitbart) In California, the solution to all ills is further taxation even though gasoline prices have skyrocketed a full .12 cents last week and past $5.00 in L.A.County now, State Sen Noreen Evans, (D-Santa Rosa) wants to tax oil.

“California is the only oil producing state in the nation that does not have an oil extraction tax. States such as Texas, Oklahoma and Alaska have such a tax and it just makes common sense,” Evans said.

Evans wants a 9.9% tax on all barrels drilled in the state, which runs up to $9.60 per barrel at current prices–the effect, will be to drive oil companies out of California and raise prices at the pump even more than what may soon be on their way for motorists. 

On top of the recent spike in gasoline prices, the California State Board of Equalization was expected to approve a 3.5 cent increase in the gas tax during their meeting in Culver City today.
