Nope. We're way over budget because we have a puppet in Sac. O.K., that is
only part of the problem. A major part is illegals. We have a HUGE number
of hospitals and clinics that are about to go bankrupt!
Pete Wilson was the brains behind the electric power crisis. He is the one
who busted up the two big utilties companies in a bid to be part of Dumbya's
cabinet. Didn't get him a thing but sure got us in a world of hurt.
Now, what does this have to do with the current situation, you ask. Tons.
Or should I say billions. The state ended up sucking it up and being the
one footing most of the bill. Ol' Bland Davis couldn't make a definitive
decision if his life depended on it. His dithering around exasperated the
problems that Petey Pie caused.
Sooooo, along comes Schwartzenazi and who should be his campaign manager and
behind the scenes guru? Petey Pie.
The real math is 90 commissions that Petey Pie put into place. The energy
crisis, again Petey Pie. Idiots that insist that every illegal, his/her
anchor baby and their lst, 2nd and 3rd cousins should get welfare, food
stamps, school lunches, WIC and MediCal are another part of the pie (MediCal
is CA's version of Medicaid. The problem is the feds don't dump in their
share for illegals, so CA carries the whole burden of that part). As far as
education goes, a lot of the problem stems from NCLB and its requirements
which were not funded at first and under funded at best. Again, add in the
illegals problem with the requirement for ESL teachers and tons of special
Then you have the Air Quality boys requiring this, that and the other thing
be added to CA's gas which put another big crimp in the budget because it
turns out the stupid stuff is a major pollutor AND carcenogen and now CA is
having to pay a bundle for that.
Take away NCLB and stop the open arms spending for illegals and you'll put a
great big dent in the deficit in CA.
Is Teflon heading that way. Ah, no. He's hell bound on the super sonic
version. He'll make CA's current problems look like a walk in the park!
Teflon's a shiney thing. Folks didn't do their homework and Marjo is going
to take them all to the cleaners.
The major downhill slide starts tomorrow with the announcement.
He's got his whole mortgage thing on the net and I think his plans for first
time home buyers. We're seriously thinking of selling this place. We
happen to be in one of the only places in CA where the prices haven't gone
down and in 4 years our place is worth more than twice what we paid for it.
Places up here are still selling. We still owe some on it and if we sell it
we can buy something else for cash and have no mortgage. The places nearer
the coast are going down in price, so we're doing some serious thinking!
I figure if we owe nothing, no matter what he does we'll be o.k.
I do wish the voters had actually gone out and done their homework! Now all
I can do is light some candles, burn a smudge and hope to whom or whatever
that the Chinese don't call the loans due!
I never thougth I'd say it but I think we have actually gone from the frying
pan into the fire! Dumbya had our grandchildren and great-grands in debt.
This circus is going to have 7 generations in debt OR MORE!
