Dear Governor Arnold,
A day or two ago John and Ken were discussing the role vanity played in our current crisis. They were specifically discussing your perpetual need to be liked and loved.Your narcissism has led California into the toilet. You have gone back on almost every major campaign promise you made; all of this was done to [...]
A big High-5 to celebrate the passage of the perfect budget! A budget that extorts over $40 billion from the people of California.
“To preserve our independence, we must not let our politicians load us with perpetual debt. We must make our choice between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude. If we can prevent the [...]
There’s no question about it. This budget is a piece of crap! Crap disguised as stool. It’s time for us Californians to wipe ourselves clean. How can we stand by and continually allow ourselves to be crapped on. Arnold sitting on his stool, counting on us to sit idly by and allow him to do [...]
The Senate and Assembly have passed the budget.
It’s time to mobilize and kick them all out! The first one to be Able Maldonado.

For a list of offices that are closed see status of some [...]
In the middle the December I emailed Governor Schwarzenegger informing him what I felt about the states spending problem and to tel him that a fix involving taxes was not the answer. Today I received the following generic reply.
Thank you for writing to share your thoughts with me about the proposed tax increase to balance [...]
After watching the Presidential Inauguration last night I got to thinking. If many of the state leaders are in Washington attending inauguration festivities who is running the state? Who is working on the budget? and who is figuring out how to solve the cash crisis forecasted by State Controller John Chiang to begin in February. [...]
A proposal to raise the state tax on wine to a level more than six times higher..raise the tax on wine to 29.6 cents for a 750-milliliter bottle from 4 cents
A six times higher tax on wine! Not only are we depressed about the economy and our incompetent state leadership we will be forced to pay a [...]
Yesterday the governor gave is State of the State speed to both houses of representatives. Unlike years before he did not focus on the plans for the next year he focused on basically telling the legislators that nothing should be done until the over $40 billion deficit in the budge is closed. He urged representatives “to [...]
