The Prop C Burrito Analogy
I keep hearing how voting yes on C is only like giving up one burrito a month (that sucks if you only get to eat lunch 30 days a month instead of 31 but whatever). This burrito analogy is classic justification for the government to nickel and dime you for your entire adult life.
Prop C is unique because by it's nature we end up with some people in Encinitas all pitching in to buy one giant burrito everybody gets to take a bite of. The freeloaders taking their free bites of the burrito get to enjoy the burrito and call the people who paid for the burrito tightwads for being against buying the burrito when the city had enough in the burrito fund to begin with.
We all get to enjoy a bite of the burrito so the burrito should be paid for out of the general fund.
