    Following California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's proposed sales tax increase and new tax on amusement park tickets, the Walt Disney Company came out in opposition of the legislation.

    Lisa Haines, Disney spokeswoman stated "We oppose the Governor's proposed theme park tax because it unfairly targets the tourism industry and may deter new visitors to the Golden State at a time we need them most. This tax is not worth the risk to an industry that is a proven job creator and economic engine for California's growth."

    Should the increase go into effect, purchases in Orange County will see a 9.25% sales tax tacked on, which, for the first time, will also be applied to amusement park tickets starting on March 1, 2009.

    And you wonder why I moved away...

    And what the enemy will see? They will see the flash of our cannons, and they will hear the ringing of our swords, and they will know what we can do! By the sweat of our brow and the strength of our backs and the courage in our hearts! Gentlemen, hoist the colors!
