If San Francisco can "opt out" of federal laws around immigration, can Pleasanton look into opting out of other federal laws, like having its residents being required to pay federal income taxes?

The way I see it is you don't have to pay taxes. There are consequences...tee hee hee, tee hee hee...Pleasanton is not the party that decides that you must pay federal income taxes.

What exactly is your gripe....hmmmmmmmmmmmm?

His gripe is preety obvious. Illegal immigrant activists throw a big middle finger at the law and public opinion. And the government let's them. So why won't the figure turn a blind eye when we, hardworking citizens, disobey the law?

If you don't like the way that Gavin Newsom is giving the stiff index finger to federal immigration laws, don't vote for him for Lt. Governor. Can't you just imagine the mischief that zero would be up to the moment the Governor traveled out of state? And, of course, his next asperation is to be Governor, and that is a thought that is difficult to process. The guy is a complete loon.

Oh...I see watchu mean...I strongly encourage you not to pay taxes!

You might want to read about Al Capone and what happened to him when he didn't pay taxes!

There are lots of Americans that don't pay their fair share. What do you think should be done?

hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...?
