Somebody needs to tell the boy that Kauliphonia is broke. I don’t think the founding fathers ever intended for “judges” to have the power we have allowed them to grab.

Screw California. They made this mess with their liberal pipe dreams, they can clean it up. NOT A PENNY TO HELP CALIFORNIA.

P.S. All you stupid Californians don't even think of moving to Arizona, we don't need nor can afford your crap. You did enough damage to us when you elected Nappy as our gov.AWB

Then the judge can pay for those furloughed employees out of his own pocket.

Ahnold should grow a pair and tell the judge ‘you decree it, you pay it.’

Take a good look. This is what happens when a system starts to collapse upon itself.

Here’s yet another story involving a judicial ruling where the media outlet doesn’t link to the judge’s decision, or even name the lawsuit. We, I suppose, are to take the media’s very limited - in this case non-existent - explanation of why the court ruled the way it did. Another reason to loathe the media.

He belongs to the "State Workers Party" the only party that counts in California 
Arnold Schwarzenegger made some efforts in the beginning and they beat him like a red haired stepchild

Same Judge

http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=117841
A judge has attacked parents, suggesting they are bigots for seeking to opt out their elementary-age children from a mandatory controversial pro-homosexual curriculum, according to a nonprofit law firm.

The parents were represented in California’s Alameda Superior Court by Pacific Justice Institute. On Dec. 1, Judge Frank Roesch denied a motion to allow them to have their children excused from the lessons.

According to the group, Roesch blasted the parents for seeking enforcement of a provision of the California Education Code that gives parents a right to opt their kids out of health education.

I was done four years ago, and moved to Texas.

Gee, to cover back pay...and all salary moving forward...I guess we'll have to lay off 80,000 of the 240,000 state workers.

The pink slips should go out tomorrow morning.

Many of the courts in CA are now on a 4 day week to save money..so they have a conflict of interest in this argument.

Baugh: A Nation Without A Country, Part V - Crisis Secession

From Crisis Secession: "We can all agree that we are sliding toward a crisis of some kind. Whether your favorite crisis scenario involves monetary policy, food supplies, energy resources, or whatever, something bad is headed our way. For years, or decades, we have been clawing at the rails to slow down the train headed toward the cliff. There are a lot of bloody fingertips out there, but there is good news. Producers can survive a major crisis in far greater numbers than can the leeches who depend on those producers. So stop clawing."
