Good morning, California voters. Do you feel better, now that you've gotten that out of your system?
You wanted to show the state's politicians just how mad you are at them. And you did. Boy, did you ever.
Proposition 1A with its taxes and its spending limit? Too much of one and not enough of the other, you said (or was it the other way around), and voted it down. Never mind that the taxes go into efffect anyway. You showed 'em.
Proposition 1B? That was a tougher call.
Proposition 1C? No way. You like the lottery just like it is. And all they were going to do with that extra $5 billion was spend it.
Propositions 1D and 1E? Forget it. You had already voted to put money into preschool and mental health programs. You're not taking it out now.
And 1F? Heck, yeah! Let's not pay our legislators if they can't pass a budget on time. So what if it likely won't have any effect, or that this year they actually passed a budget months earlier than they needed to? That's not the point.
The point is that you're sick and tired of all this political mumbo-jumbo. So you showed those politicians who's in charge. You. You're now officially in charge of a state that will be something like $25 billion in the hole for the fiscal year beginning July 1.
So, now that you've put those irksome politicians in their place, maybe it's time to think about this: Since you're in charge, exactly what do you intend
...That sounds a lot like work, you say? Sorry, no whining allowed. You asked for this job. Now you've got it, so get on it. Oh, and remember. The entire nation is watching to see how you do now that you're in charge.

Libs hate Americans. That’s just the way it is.
Sorry, meant that to be edited! Looks like I botched it! I’m sure it will be stricken from the record. Sorry admin!
Yes California voters and while your at it perhaps you all should cancel your subscriptions to the SacBee if anyone still has one.
Then, we can go after the illegals.
See Sac-O-Bee? Problem solved.
There is little hope that CA can cut the spending fast enough to keep up with the declining tax revenues. With car sales down by nearly 50%..and that is a big earner of sales tax and no capital gains tax coming in..they are in a world of trouble.
They will be headed to DC looking for another hand out.
Kinfolk said you better move away from there
Said California is no place for you to be
So I loaded up the truck and I moved from Beverly
Going back to the hills we are
Fishing holes and Country and Western Stars
I hope they go bankrupt. smug little twerps....
Post of the YEAR contender.
while I’m sure it will be edited also...I agree with the sentiment :o)
I don’t want to get into a p!$$!ng match with you, but ... is the B correct?
What would you expect from the Excremento Bee?
It’s still there as of this posting time...
>The tax-loving Sac-O-Bee demonstrates its contempt for California voters.
Well, don’t our Political Overlords do the same?
Okay, I’ll take the challenge.
First cut head count 10% across the board. With 330,000 employees, I think 33,000 are dead weight. Assume burdened cost of $100,000 per employee. There is 33,000,000,000 in annual savings. just do it.
As I taught my daughter as she was growing up, if it is on the tip of your tongue it is in danger of falling out when you open your mouth.
I forgive you this time, though.
FU Sac Bee. *spit*
