Jerry Brown downplays TV report over Caltrans vehicle use
Sacramento Bee ^ | October 27 2012 | David Siders and Jon Ortiz

Posted on 10/27/2012 9:32:44 AM PDT by WilliamIII

Gov. Jerry Brown on Friday downplayed a Los Angeles television station's report of Caltrans employees using state rental trucks for personal purposes, saying "only God" can watch over every one of the state's hundreds of thousands of public employees.

"Caltrans has been looking at it. I would be glad to look into it," the Democratic governor said after a speech to the California state conference of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. "If somebody took some time off to do something, we'll find it, but, you know, to blow it up like it's some major thing – there are 300,000 employees in the state of California, and I'd like to watch over all of them, but I think only God can accomplish that."

He didn’t just down play it. He pushed the reporter and called him a thug then accused him of being a murderer. It was really ugly

Jerry Brown called the reporter a “thug”?

“Thug”? Maybe the reporter was wearing reflective glasses? Maybe Jerry was seeing his own face in the reflection?

One step in the right direction...

Jerry did acknowledge God. Now, the governor has to apply that to a whole list of matters that are major failures from God's perspective.

Hope Jerry B. gets the message.... /sarc

I love these liberals. They want control over everything and everyone. Then when they screw up it’s “no one could have seen that coming” and “that’s above my pay grade.”

Good old Jerry Brown and his dog Sutter........

“Well, Sutter, looks like the people I’m in charge of have been breaking the law. What do you think I should do?”

“Woof!”

“That’s it! Don’t take responsibility! Just like President Obama and Benghazi! That’s the Democrat way! Yeah! And we can blame Bush, too! Bush was driving those trucks! Thanks boy!”

Jerry: you can’t keep track of 300,000 state employees? OK. Reduce that number to 200,000 state employees. Maybe that will help. It can’t hurt.

Notice how this worshipper of Baal uses the word “God” while he is actively corrupting Kindergarden boys with promotion of anal sex. Forcing the next generation to “think” that “Evil is Good” and to take pride in artificial “families” that deny dignity and natural rights to children.

He is evil to force the corruption of children and destroying that innocence that children need to grow up with a healthy sexual identity and respect for the opposite sex. Jerry knows what Marxist evil thing he is doing to warp the minds of little kids. He is extremely evil as all Marxists. (Dr. Samuel Blumenfeld).

What Sex Ed does in elementary school is removes morality from the sex act-—it makes it meaningless and conditions the children into thinking sex is just another animal act—instinct with no moral consequences. It is part of the Hegelian dialectic to eliminate the family unit and destroy long term relationships so we are owned heart and soul by the State.

Marx loathed the family and God. You have to warp the mind of children to get this unnatural worldview. Public Schools are for mass indoctrination —to make slaves of the state. Get your kids and grandkids OUT of the grid. (TV too). Either your kids worship God or the State. They are forcing it to be the State.

Well, the company I work for maintains a fleet of vehicles (nowhere near as large as Caltrans does). A few years ago they installed GPS location devices in them. The fleet manager told me the first full month after installation, our monthly fuel bill decreased from $125,000 to $110,000. Maybe The Good Lord can’t look down from the sky upon Caltrans vehicles, but satellites sure can!

what in the heck are you blathering about? this post was about Brown’s reaction to a reporter asking about renting trucks so state workers could use them for personal reasons thus costing the tax payers more money.

Ranting does not help the conservative cause at all. It is always important to stay focussed and on topic otherwise folks will think that you are really part of the delusional left (no matter what you say)

He mentioned “God”-—like he worships God.

All his actions point to the worship of Baal.

Until people understand the underlying Marxist (godless) ideology of Brown—they have no understanding of “why” he uses religious imagery to try to gain sympathy and acceptance. The deceit and lies of Marxism is so apparent in his statements about renting trucks, I thought I would “add” a bit of psychology to the event.

Understanding the whole picture—not just one event— is the only thing which will save our country from totalitarianism. Jerry Brown’s actions—all of them—are Marxist to the core——particularly his indoctrination of little children to create fellow travelers. He is evil. Can’t TYPE that enough times as he is corrupting millions of children in public schools every single week day.

Right.

No ranting got us zero. PC got us zero. Silencing of “Truth” and parents giving up raising their own children-— got us a public school system that glorifies sodomy to kindergarteners, no less—and has Pride Days and “Honor a Pederast Day”—Milk—and you think MY “ranting” is turning people off???????The public schools are producing OWS idiots and ACORN thugs and you worry about pointing out the Truth????

NOT ranting has allowed perverts to transform this Christian Nation into a pederastic nation like their idol and sodomite “Sugar” Keynes wanted. We are normalizing sodomy to the next generation with Glee type Fare and you think it is good to not point out the Truth?

I think it gets people to THINK of what they are really endorsing when they allow Jerry Brown to be elected. His godless ideology prevails. Just a few decades ago—people KNEW that character ALWAYS matters. But we turned the other cheek and allowed rapists to keep their jobs and actually PRAISE them and distort the word “Right” in such a way that Rights come from Satan in America now (Abortion and Sodomy).

Pastor Bonhoeffer will tell you what “silence” and “tolerance” of evil does to a culture. He was appalled at the “PC” acceptance of the masses as the vulgar Weimar Republic and deChristianized of the population allowed for the declaration of Hitler their Savior. The “Good” German remained silent except for Bonhoeffer and a few who were killed for speaking against evil.

Being PC has gotten us to a point where large numbers of people NOW “think” it is a “Right” to have sodomites marry and adopt children. You also have since the 70’s indoctrination and silence through PC and Aliskylike tactics-—the idea that homosexual “marriage” is inevitable-—when for thousands of years it was considered stupid and silly and immoral. That because it is unnatural and a Vice. Wow-—why point the obvious out??????? when our jurisprudence is supposed to uphold Justice—which is promoting Virtue and God’s Laws.

I think Truth should be SHOUTED from the rooftops—always!!!! Guess I liked Samuel Adams’ and Jonathan Edwards’ style better than your trying to skirt truth so not to “offend” anyone. That is why we are in this hellhole today—people who think like you and are afraid to offend anyone so they actually “think”.

Whatever happened to Supervisors and Managers?

Aren’t they supposed to keep track of the employees under them?

I guess not:
Sumner Baker, a supervisor in the department's Colton field office, was identified as driving a state-rented Dodge Ram four-door truck during work hours to buy alcohol.

and again you go on and on. You have put words in my mouth that I have not spoken. Go rant against someone else. I guarantee you no one is listening but yourself. You come off sounding very much like the folks from Westboro. So have at it

Unlike Westboro, I believe in Truth and Reason. They do understand how evil sodomy and the Koran is, though-—I do grant them that.

To protest at funerals, etc., is really classless and rude....But I think I would have protested at John Maynard Keynes’ funeral since he bragged about sodomizing boys and castrating boys and had homosexual orgies with his friends, which included little boys.

You seem to be testy when I mention “sodomy”. When you force “Sodomy is Good” and “Sodomy is a Right” you destroy a child’s Christian Worldview and the principles in the US Constitution—since Rights come from God in this nation and he hates sodomy.

I plug it as much as I can since people like you don’t understand the Postmodernist ideology—Marxism which is being used to obliterate God and the Natural Family Unit-—two pillars of Western Civ. It is the Marxist plan-—Jerry Brown is leading the charge in corrupting the morality and innocence of very young children-—make little Keynesian future sodomites out of our boys. It is extremely SICK that parents are allowing their children to be corrupted by the public school systerm (which is unconstitutional). This is worth repeating until the children are SAVED from a warped lifestyle which is learned as the little Afghani boys will tell you as they eye the harems (of boys).
