Prop. D: City Savior Or Blank Check?

As a small business in San Diego, we have enough problems with customers using the fact that they can buy on the internet without paying sales tax as leverage to make us lower our prices. As long as we have that competition, we will not support any additional increase in sales tax. This money needs to be a acquired in any way. Please leave businesses alone.

And excuse me, sdindependent, but I have no idea what you were saying. I told the guy that I was not interested in signing his petition and he should have left it at that. Instead he and his pal harassed me verbally. Also, you should learn how to spell.

Carl DeMaio And Marti Emerald Discuss City Contracting Initiative

Several weeks ago I was minding my own business as I left Lowe's in Mission Valley with an armload of cleaning supplies. Noticing a table set up outside the store, I made my usual b-line away to let them know that I was not interested in signing a petition. I don't care what the petition is for, I just never sign. So the guy starts calling out to me and I say my usual "Sorry I don't sign petitions" to which he responded "so you want San Diego to be ruined" or something of that nature. I looked over to look at his sign on the table. It talked about no unions and an additional handwritten scrawl, something about "out of state workers". I said that I know people who have benefited from union job protection. Suddenly this guy's thug jumps out from behind him and yells, "The democrats are ruining San Diego!" I wanted to go into the store and complain to the manager but these guys looked like gun-toters or at least I was afraid that they would follow me back to my car so I called the manager of the store on my cell phone to report the harassment that I received outside of his store. In all my years I have NEVER had anyone respond to my "sorry, I don't sign petitions" with anymore than "thanks". Now I know who put them up to this. SHAME ON YOU CARL!
