Wow - Why then do we need the special assessment (tax) for rural area again? If Cal-Fire has a slush fund, then why can't that be used?
I think there are alot of "hidden" funds out there...How much of the fire tax funds will be "hidden" ???
I dont even know what to say!!!I will take my illegally taken from me TAX money now!!!!
And how many of you voted for the "temporary" sales tax increase? And how many of you supported the fire tax? Brown claims he is going to balance the budget in 6 years....how about starting with a REAL, independent, and competent audit of the state budget. Why have these hidden funds gone undiscovered by the state auditors? As a former municipal government agency CEO, I can assure you, these hidden funds are just the tip of the iceberg. So called "soft" corruption and gross mismanagement of public funds is a pattern and practice of the California state government, on both sides of the aisle. Yet the "sheeple" of California continue to vote these thieves into office and continue to vote for tax increases. As the saying goes...A sucker born every day!
Hidden funds by CalFire...meanwhile they continue to collect illegal taxes for property protection by labeling them "fees" not taxes, yet collecting them using the State Board of Equalization and remittance adress that uses the "tax" dept. I want my money back, and I'm sure a lot of others do too! I hope the Jarvis group nails them to the wall in the lawsuit that's pending.
AMAZING! Cal-Fire hiding funds??? Why am I NOT suprised by this?
I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!!
Talk about orginized crime, the biggest gang is our own government officials and Jerry Brown being the mob boss. Brown passes a rural fire tax that is against Ca constitutional law and Cal Fire has 3.6 million stashed with a government fence that charges 18% to get it out. Plus no one will be held acountable, they,ll just pass it off as a mistake!And the sad thing is, the people will buy it!
I wonder how much more the gov has hidden away in special accounts?
I WANT MY ILLEGAL FIRE TAX BACK !
Since this is happening at the state level, it isn't a big stretch to believe this is also happening at the federal level. It's all about mindset. Politicians and government employees must embrace the fact that we the people have every right to expect that every dollar given to them must be stretched to its limit and not set aside in departmnetal piggy banks. Do the budgeting methods need to be reviewed and updated? Absolutely. How about employing best practices used by successful businesses as a model for this? I'm surprised that state/federal employees, who are also members of we of the people, aren't speaking out and whistle blowing to stop these abuses. After all, their tax dollars are also being wasted.
If the Fourth Estate (the media & so-called "reporters") were to do the investigative reporting they used to do (25 years ago), government & corporations wouldn't get away with all the crooked stuff they do now. But all we get anymore is the latest medical "breakthrough" or some gossip about a sports figure, keeping us all in the dark and allowing public & private wrongdoing to run rampant behind the scenes.
So now that Cal Fire has found all this money, do we get our $150 fire tax back that was paid under protest????????
And we are paying a "Fire Tax" because??????
Who didn't think this was a ripp off?
I didn't pay the fire tax and now i have even better reason not to...sue me.
First the state parks hidden fund and now Cal Fire. And those are just what we know about. It is no wonder the average person is so disillusioned with government.
...not one of the resident "Libs",has commented?Why is this not on any of the other news sites....3,10,13?
Lets call this what it is,theft plain and simple,there better be some indictments from this,but I'm not holding my breath..
and into the general moonbeam fund...the march goes on!
When cal fire or the state parks or other government entity does something like this, it's an oversight or mistake. When you do it, it's fraud.
Nothing on the news to night. The news media does not want the public to know is going on in the real world...my thinking..
Ret Co Social wkr
What an embarrassment to be a resident of California.
I have no respect for Cal-Fire or anyone associated with them. Period.
