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

missionaccomplished, "Asstrofan, where does it say here ANYTHING about "$50 million for illegal college education"??? I don't see that anywhere in the article. So please please do us all a favor and STAY on topic."

So if we discuss and major issue, we can only use thoughts that were presented in the on air discussion? The point I was making, which is a true point, Jerry Brown has decided we have enough money that we can now give our money to fund grant's for illegal aliens. Don't come around asking us for more money when you dole out our tax money to people not here legally.

"Asstrofan"--that's a good one.

CD, please don't confuse IIK with the facts. 80% of education money goes to pay salaries and obscenely bloated pension and benefits. When people think of money for education they think it's for classrooms or expansion of classes, but in reality it will all go to pay off unsustainable teacher benefits.

Remembere when we were threatened with having the parks close if we didn't cough up more money for license fees (where some of the money was to go to the parks)? Now they find a hidden $54 million dollars in the park's funds. How can any of you believe what the Governor and politicians tell you in this state?

So Cal Edison To Lay Off 730 San Onofre Employees

Are we sure this isn't because they don't expect to have it up and running for a long time?

"Maintain our education and quality of life." Our education is currently the rated in the bottom 20%. Our teachers are the second highest paid teachers in the US. If you reduced their salary 20% they would still be the second highest teachers in the US. Oh, and the drop out rate is 50%.

Quality of life--top three US highest income tax, sales tax, and gas tax. And a boat load of "fees" on top of that. Again, I'm tapped out.

$50 million plus a year for illegal alien college grants. Billions for the "high" speed rail boondoogle. Millions in raises for University presidents. No Jerry, you' re not taking one more cent from me. I'm taxed out.

Study Says High-Speed Rail Will Be Good For Environment

First it ain't "high speed rail." This boondoggle was sold as costing $30 billion, 70% private money and 30% public, with an understanding that the time between LA & San Francisco would be 2 hours 40 minutes. Now it's $65 billion (yeah right), minimum of 3 and 1/2 hours to SF and all private money. It's no longer high-speed, but mixed with regular trains. This was clearly a bill of goods sold to an unknowing public that violates the public's vote and will be stopped in the court--and good riddance.

Lori Saldaña Defends Gun Control After Aurora Shooting

I'm just listening now and I'm trying to figure out why the first thing the moderator did was take that pointless phone call from Alan. The quote from Martin Luther King had nothing to do with the topic--gun control for individuals.

Escondido Police Under Fire

This is the tease on KPBS homepage for this segment, "Escondido Police criticized for its practice of using DUI checkpoints to identify and deport undocumented residents."

Uh, shouldn't that be its "alleged" practice or has KPBS decided they're guilty? Talk about bias.

News: Comic-Con Badges Sales Closed

The link was incorrect. At least for my Windows 7 IE 9 browser. I stumbled on the correct link when at the Comic Con home page. All of a sudden there was a green button to click. I got number 42,000 and that just isn't going to make it.

I believe they should go to a lottery system with the ability to buy 4, not 6, ID passes.
