I bet you are feeling more motivated now!

And now, back to our regularly scheduled blog post…

What is everyone’s favorite “C” word on SD Rostra?


(Get your mind out of the gutter).

Rostrafarians, start your engines. Give us a caption for the photo of this clearly troubled young taxpayer. The winner gets… uh, well Thor will figure that part out later. You get Rostra bragging rights for sure and we’ll tweet the sweetest caption.

Many thanks to Lani Lutar, currently on maternity leave from her post as President & CEO of the San Diego County Taxpayers Association, for providing this charming photo of her son Alexander.

  1. “I was kinda partial to the blue and green striped baby carrier at Sears Parkway, but the sales tax in El Cajon is outrageous — and the price on this little number at the Penasquitos WalMart couldn’t be beat.”

  2. With the future debt the local, state and federal governments are building up, should I even bother going to school and trying to find a job? Most of my paycheck will end up being taxed to repay all this borrowing.

  3. “My mom and dad voted for Democrats and all I got was this stinkin’ t-shirt.”


    “If you liked Brown’s budget proposal….you’ll love what’s in my diaper!”

  4. Mommy says we have to shop in Santee, because the sales tax is the lowest in the East County, but boy this traffic is the worst.

  5. “I am wearing this shirt because all the ‘Dumanis for Mayor’ shirts were bought up by some guy named Barry.”

  6. 1) “I should have stayed in the womb.”

    2) “If your looking for the proposed city budget its in the back of my diaper.”

    3) “I have something in common with city employee unions, we both suckle the teet.”

    4) “That smell isn’t me, its city hall.”

  7. With a baby due in June, my wife and I are looking forward to the little guy wearing something along these lines. I was personally on the hunt for something that says, “Social Security stinks more than me!” but any of these will do.

  8. They all give me a rash: CALpers, SDpers, and my diapers!


    I can count on my mommy and the IRS for two things: One will take my soiled diapers and -no matter how cool it is- the other will always take my shirt off my back…


    I’m a prime example of how birth control pills are tax deductible. . . .but only if they don’t work.
