California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is using his veto pen to push back on some bills that legislators passed ...
On Thursday, he attached this veto message to Assembly Bill 2418, which would have removed the apostrophe in the Contractors State License Law.
To the Members of the California State Assembly: I am returning AB 2419 without my signature(snip)
-Number of legislative committees that took time hearing this bill: 3
-Number of pages in this bill needed to remove an apostrophe: 184
-Taxpayer dollars used to pass this bill through the Legislature: $ thousands and thousands.
-The outrage the public should have that the Legislature is spending its time working on bills like this instead of focusing on Californias real problems: PRICELESS.
The author of the punctuation legislation, Republican Assemblyman Paul Cook, was not amused with Schwarzeneggers note.
He was certainly disappointed that the governor chose to veto the measure and in particular with the tone of his veto message, said Sam Cannon, Cooks chief of staff.

Arnies got the cancer called “kennedy” can’t believe he was once the terminator.
And what is the point of removing the apostrophe, except to cater to the growing minions who don’t know when to use one?
I’m sick of carrying a Driver License.
We were sold a warrior and ended up with a cupcake.
I never noticed that before - how odd.
Don’t insult the cupcakes.

He may be a cupcake, but he is OUR cupcake!!!
That is not really very stirring and inspiring, is it? Well, it is a starting point.

Nope. If we eat them, I make it. LOL
It would appear to me the apostrophe belongs there — are you saying it does not?
