Schwarzenegger Calls for Davis to Reconvene Legislature to Extend Meganís Law
www.joinarnold.com ^ | September 17, 2003 | Join Arnold

Posted on 09/19/2003 1:37:44 PM PDT by Tamzee

Arnold Schwarzenegger released the following statement today regarding the legislature and governor’s neglect of California’s “Megan’s Law,” which allows for public access to information about registered sex offenders in their community.

“I am upset that the legislature would adjourn and leave Sacramento without renewing the public’s right to have access to the Megan’s Law registry of sex offenders.

“Megan’s Law has been a tremendous tool for parents to keep their children safe, secure and away from predators. I endorse Assembly Minority Leader Dave Cox’s call that the governor immediately reconvene the legislature to extend Megan’s Law.

“If Gray Davis and the legislative leadership fail to act upon Mr. Cox’s request, then I assure all Californians that upon taking office, I will call the legislature back into session to reinstate the public’s access to Megan’s Law. We should be moving forward in our commitment to keep children safe – not retreating.”

Hmmm, I guess this must be Bustamante, because everyone here knows Arnold isn't any better than Bustamante on any issues. They're clones...

On top of that Tom McClintock must be who we're reading about here.

These writers get so confused.

MMMmmmmm, yeah... Arnold is exactly the same as Cruz, I know, folks keep tellin me ;-)

I'd like to see where Cruz also supports the death penalty and the 3-strikes law?

What, Arnold is in support of the death penalty and three strike? Why that can't be. Bustamante isn't for the death penalty and three strickes. How could this be?

Davis Urges Lawmakers to Extend Megan´s Law
Thursday, Sep. 18, 2003 - 06:35 am

Governor Davis is asking Senate and Assembly leaders to return to the Capitol to approve a bill extending Megan´s Law, the 1996 law that lets the public view the state´s registry of about 100,000 sex offenders.

FYI ping!

This post is especially dear to my heart because I spent years working on criminal justice issues relating to child predators on the Internet. I met many parents with beloved children that had been kidnapped and murdered by repeat offenders :-(

Bustamante isn't for the death penalty

I understand your frustartion in trying to find differences between Arnold and Cruz, but you're wrong again.

The Cruz quote supporting the death penalty is pretty tepid, anyways.... and there is nothing there about him supporting the 3 strikes law, which Arnold adamantly does.


Q: Do you support the Three Strikes law?

Arnold: Yes, and I believe it should not be modified. It has proven to be an excellent deterrent to violent crime.

He cares about the people.

Bustamante making appointments that would be supportive of tough crime laws

That was a quick change of subject. Who does Arnold say he'll appoint?

Roscoe if you want to buy off on Bustamante making appointments that would be supportive of tough crime laws and the death penalty go ahead. I'm not buying it.

I do find it remarkable that your paralysis has recovered so quickly though, because you couldn't find any statements by Schwarzenegger saying he wouldn't raise taxes a short while ago, but within moments you had Davis and Bustamente quotes on the forum.

Some of us have been quite curious what your game was this election cycle. I must say you take the bait rather quickly.

What's up Roscoe? For weeks you've been playing stupid as a brick when it came to supportive comments about Scharzenegger.  You couldn't think of one area where Schwarzenegger was better. What's up with that Roscoe?

Is it just that you have an inside with Davis and Bustamante, or are you more motivated to defend them? Why would you be?

Hey Roscoe, why don't you do a time study on how fast you found Bustamante and Davis' views as compared to weeks of real or feined ignorance on your part regarding Schwarzenegger.

Schwarzenegger may raise taxes
Michael McKenna in Los Angeles
22aug03

ARNOLD Schwarzenegger was given his first political lesson yesterday when he abandoned his monosyllabic campaign script and opened the door to raising taxes if he were elected governor of California.

At his first major press conference, the Republican candidate admitted that although he did not want to raise taxes "we can't ever say never" to new revenue-raising measures to attack the state's $US38 billion (58 billion) budget deficit.

Assembly"woman" Nicole Parra ("queen of voter fraud") is the reason Megan's Law is in trouble in CA. I resent Arnold grandstanding and exploiting this issue. It's disgusting!!! The democrats should demand that Parra resign over this.

The problem with Arnold is that you can't believe what he says. Like those commercials on the radio - about how he is outraged over Prop 13 opponents. I keep remembering how Buffet said he thinks we Californians don't pay enough property tax. And I keep remembering how Arnold called me (and supporters of Prop 54, racial privacy initiative) RIGHT WING CRAZIES. I am also aware that Arnold refused to sign the Marriage Protection Pledge.

So you can go on and on about how you adore and worship Schwarzenegger. I AIN'T BUYIN' ANY OF IT!!

Go, McClintock. www.helptom.com

Arnold's taking a strong stand on this issue helps bring it to the attention of the voters... and shines a bright light on the cockroaches deliberately allowing more children to become victims of repeat offenders.

As far as the democrats demanding Parra resign, perhaps you could ask McClintock to have one of his buddies at the DNC take care of that?

Buffett is the one not running for office right? And questions so far?

>>> ...Arnold proves again to stand for conservative ideals <<<

I think what REALLY torks their corks is Arnold's ability to advance agendas in progress, or in limbo.

Didn't Ronaldus Magnus actually keep a plaque on his very desk in the Oval Office which said:
"A man can accomplish anything if he doen't mind who takes the credit."

Well this subject has been in the news. I sure didn't hear Gray make any calls on this. The first I heard about anyone saying something about it was Arnold. I guess he should have remained silent on it so nobody would know. I mean in the interest of the state and it's children and all. Raising the visibility is so democrat you know.

How would you know? You don't know jack about Arnold. You didn't even know he said he wouldn't raise taxes as part of the fiscal fix? This was in his first press conference and you can't even find the transcript for that.

Gosh darn if I don't fear a relapse coming.

Standing up for Megan's law - wow this takes a lot of guts. But Arnold won't join the referendum drive to repeal the illegals' drivers-license law. I guess his courage only goes so far.

Buying aside,

for whom would you vote if, on Oct. 7, polls that you trust show Recall passing easily, and: Arnold 30%, Cruz 30%, McClintock 19%?

My answer is Arnold. If MClintock had at least, say, 28% -- bear in mind this is a poll I trust -- maybe I'd go for him, for after all he's my first choice here.

Waitaminit. Why is it improper (you say) for Arnold to call attention to his stance in favor of extending Megan's Law ... but it's proper (I presume you would say) and NOT grandstanding for McClintock to get out in front on the car tax and illegals' licenses issues? I think all three measures proposed by those two guys are good ideas. Either they're both grandstanding or neither is.
