Science Tax Bitches

Posted by Anonymous on Thu, May 23, 2013 at 9:05 AM

So, the Arts Tax is a go again. Ok Portland, let me get this straight. You extort money from everyone in the county to pay hipsters with an unemployable skill-set, to teach more hipsters this unemployable skill-set. Really? REALLY?

Let me run some cray shit past you. How about a fucking SCIENCE TAX? You know, that area of education that produces computer geeks and engineers who...well...I dunno...keep IT systems that collect your precious Arts Tax payments up and running?

It's all about balance. We need students who are science-literate. We don't need more over-educated service industry workers with arts degrees. The only bitters I need in my cocktail are Angosturan, not the disenfranchised agony of some bartender/arteest [sic] who's suckling off the dole because Art Basel turned his "portfolio" down again.
