, more than $236 million in Hetch Hetchy power revenues were transferred during Feinstein's administration ending in 1987; $95 million during Art Agnos' four-year administration ending in 1991; more than $104 million during Frank Jordan's administration ending in 1995; and more than $233 million through Willie Brown's administration.

Why am I not surprised that Fineswine and Brown stole the most? But I'm sure they fully support free sex-change operations for their constituents.

San Francisco is a city lost. Imagine a city paying for sex change operations for its employees. It is liberalism gone wild.

Isn't this just a huge hidden tax to pay for their past programs?

As Gomer Pyle would exclain: "Well Goooolleee!"

"Sheeple Fleecing 101":

1) Skim cash from revenue sources and bond initiatives that were originally sold as, and intended for use in, infrastructure management and expansion (roads, bridges, water systems, schools, etc.)

2) Use these funds to expand socialist government programs, government bureacracy (salaries), and to reward political supporters (payoffs).

3) Allow the infrastructure to degrade to perilous levels.

4) Infgorm the (incredibly gullible) sheeple that a dire condition exists that can only be solved by bond issuance and fee (tax) increases.

5) Laugh all the way to the bank after the sheeple cave in at the next election cycle.

6) Repeat until the sheeple wise up.

There you have it -- "Sheeple Fleecing 101".

Great plot for a disaster movie, though. The Johnstown flood on a massive scale.

First, Cal ISO.

Now, Hetch Hetchy.

And Californians still believe that Democrat politicians running public utilities is a good idea?

I wonder what's next...

The people voting for the Democrats are used to third world public utilities and they get more numerous every year.

This is exactly why the rats from Davis on down wanted and still want to run our public utilities.

Then they can loot the proceeds, charge what they want to charge to whom.

That is the ultimate fascist dream! When they control the utilities, railroads and all public service revenue areas, they will then move to control businesses.

See this regarding the sheeple in New Jersey and Toreccilli:

The New York Times reports on the mental anguish of New Jersey Dems forced to choose between voting for a crook and a Republican for Senator.

To 'Rat politicians, the gross margins on utilities become simply another "revenue stream". Like taxes...

Most of the rats I know in N. Kali have zero problem in voting for a rat criminal over a non criminal republican.

There is nothing that Clintoon did nor would do, would have stopped them from voting for him if he had decided to violate the constitution and run for a third term.

I asked a lot of Rats if they would vote for Clintoon if he ran for a third term. Not a one said that they wouldn't vote for him.

Our utility bills have so many of these stream taxes attached that it is joke. About 40% of our basic monthly phone bill is some type of socialist scam/fee/tax/revenue drain. We have all types of sur charges on our PG&E bill.

The office holders in that city are those who are outcasts. This is what they are. This is what they do. Do not marvel do not be amazed. Merely compare this city with others run by the same class i.e. Sudra's.
