text Grocery Tax on SF 11/8/16 Ballot & Other Anti-Labor Props by Sniff
The stench of corruption and possible election fraud can be seen in the many anti-labor propositions on the San Francisco 11/8/16 ballot, with perhaps the worst being the Grocery Tax on sugar drinks that will certainly cause ALL food prices to rise at the grocery store and in restaurants, so the Democratic Party machine at City Hall can have a slush fund, since this one, unlike the 2014 measure which was defeated, is openly and proudly going to the general fund instead of specific projects, s...

text Three Little Scams: Manipulating the Housing Crisis by Steve Martinot

May 31, 2016 started with around $60 out of $1600 and is now at $443 out of $1600. Considering all the postings, and far more viewers probably reading this website, that is shameful.
