Former San Diego Mayor Gambled Away Millions

"She had a gambling addiction that caused her to lose millions of dollars."

No, she chose to gamble millions of stolen dollars that, due to the nature of gambling, resulted in the lost of millions of dollars.

Brown's Budget: Calif. Rebounding With Tax Hikes

I give up. How is spending more money we don't have "seeing brighter days"? We still have tens of billions in unfunded pension obligations. We're going to blow billions on a "high speed" train to nowhere. We still spend almost double per prisoner than any other state. We still have whored out, to the state union leaders, politicians. And now we have, shudder, an unstoppable Democratic state legislation. Oh yeah, things are just great.

A Look At Measures On November's Ballot

I love the lying title Prop. 30 was given, "PROPOSITION 30: TEMPORARY TAXES TO FUND EDUCATION. GUARANTEED LOCAL PUBLIC SAFETY FUNDING."

Yeah right, first politicians will do everything they can to make the taxes permanent. Second the money goes to cover the pension short falls, not to "the children." If you really wanted to make sure that money goes to "the children" you would vote for Molly Munger's ghastly tax plan.

Fewer Californians Like High Speed Rail or New Pension Law

Er, Derek, perhaps the trains in Europe go to places people want to go. Not Bakersfield to Chowchilla (sp?). Perhaps they actually go fast, remember now it's a mixture of regular and "high speed" rail.

If the voters could revote on this with some factual statisics, instead of the lies they were given, it would gdownnw in flames, and you know it.

PS, If I'm going to SF from SD, I'm taking a plane.

Fewer Californians Like High Speed Rail or New Pension Law

Slowly but surely the people of CA are finally figuring it out. The "high speed" rail boondoggle that went from $34 million to double that (though I'm sure it will be over $100 billion when done), that was supposed to be funded 70% or 80% with private money--ain't going to happen, that has doubled in estimated date of completion, that is not going to go to San Francisco in the time the voters voted for.

Pension "reform." Well I guess it will help by 2040 (if the union bosses haven't gotten back everything they "gave up." Another scam by the whored out legislators.

No more regressive taxes--no on Prop. 30.

Can Obama 'Reintroduce Hope' At Convention?

"I've noticed CAD never seems to post any solutions not very surprising the GOP have none."

I didn't know we were supposed to post solutions on these threads. I thought we were commenting on the audios. Learn something everyday. Do we need to have them vetted by the GAO before posting?

Hunter Announces Bill Punishing States That Give Driver's Licenses To Undocumented Immigrants

"Anyone who would criticize Obama's Deferred Action program as pure political gamesmanship ought to be leveling the same criticism against Mr. Hunter for this."

OK fine, they're both pandering for purely political reasons. However I find Obama's to be particularly egregious. He did nothing when he had both Houses, but pulled a fast one when he heard the chorus of illegal immigration activists getting too loud.

Gov. Brown Makes 'Yes on 30' Campaign Stop In San Diego

Sorry you're too dense to make the connection between our Governor blowing millions on people who don't belong here while asking us to shell out more tax dollars. Or threatening to close parks if we don't cough up $18 a year in park fees while they're hiding $54 million or spending tens of billions on "high speed" rail with a train to nowhere.

Than you talk about Robert Reich immigration plans, now that's really off topic.
