Yesterday at the Polls
CALIFORNIA PENAL CODE, Section 653.
Every person who tattoos or offers to tattoo a person under the age of 18 years is guilty of a misdemeanor.
As used in this section, to "tattoo" means to insert pigment under the surface of the skin of a human being, by pricking with a needle or otherwise, so as to produce an indelible mark or figure visible through the skin.
One must wonder about the warped thinking that compromises the secular humanist’s sacred sacrament of abortion.
Proposition 74 would have increased teachers’ probationary period from two years to five years. Sounds innocuous enough, however, anyone familiar with the stranglehold that California public service unions have on the state can understand their fear of this proposition. Public education is in a state of decline in California, however, most of the output will end up in California institutions of higher ignorance where they will fit right in to the scheme of things.
Proposition 75 was sure to create fear as well in the public service unions. It would have required accountability for union money expended for political purposes. This type of legislation would lead to a further decline in the power of any union required to get the approval of an employee to use his hard earned money to involuntarily support a progressive liberal demoracist union’s political agenda. When I was a union member, my biggest dissatisfaction was that I involuntarily supported a political agenda that I did not agree with. It is simply wrong and needs to be stopped.
Proposition 76 did not stand a chance of the proverbial snowball in hades of passing. Limit politicians’ ability to tax and spend? Get real. Give the Executive the ability of line item veto? Never happen. Tax and spend, tax and spend it's off to bankruptcy we go.
Proposition 77 was to modify the redistricting method for California voting. The current computer-based system is based on the University of California, Berkeley, campus. Apparently there is significant involvement of University personnel in operating the system. What could be more fair than that famous bastion of the law and free speech, U.C., Berkeley, helping incumbents, California wide, to be reelected?
Today’s political buzz is the effect of yesterday’s elections on national politics. Most of the elections have absolutely no consequence, nationally, especially in New Jersey and Virginia. Texans sent a strong message to Hanoi John, and his ilk, that we still maintain conservative, traditional beliefs here in the Great State of Texas. I have no doubt that the demoracists did not hear the message loud and clear. They will continue to beat their collective heads against the brick wall and wonder we they cannot regain power. The bottom line, in this type of election, Texas and New Hampshire have merely confirmed their beliefs.
The California election was of great significance to Texas and the Nation. Governor Schwarzenegger’s reelection would rank as a minor miracle. The California hardheads still have not gotten the message. Their tax and spend habits, public school policies and public service unions will continue to have businesses shutting down in California and moving elsewhere.
Texas has been in the past, and will be in the future, huge beneficiaries of the exodus. California will ultimately bankrupt itself and will not learn a lesson. Their response will be to thrust their tin cup in Washington’s direction to ask them to bail them out (a la New York City).
That will be when Californians will finally learn to control their urges because the Federal Government will not help them recover from their self inflicted wounds. If the Federal government does help, in any way, the price must be drastic financial reform. Personally I do not favor helping them at all when they finally bankrupt theirselves. Yesterday they passed on several significant items that would have helped bring their finances under control.
The way that I see the drama playing out is that Governor Schwarzenegger will not be reelected. Schwarzenegger will be replaced with some progressive liberal politically correct demoracist party hack who will take the election as a mandate to tax and spend California into a state of oblivion. Personally I wish that Warren Beatty would be the next Governor of California to speed up the process of decline.
There are great joy and taunts galore in California over how the "GOP lost" in yesterday’s elections. How Governor Schwarzenegger will not be reelected. How the voters of California do not have to endure the pain of reform of the state’s finances. We will see what happens to joy and taunts when they stick out their tin cup in Washington’s direction.
