More Opinions Than A Newspaper

Looks like we left just in time. I didn't vote for Arnold and I most certainly didn't vote to recall Gray Davis because I didn't believe rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic was going to help. I did vote for Prop 13 and believe it is long past time for parts of it to be repealed. Specifically the two thirds majority for tax increases and corporations receiving the same tax break that only the elderly should have.  Fifteen people who have roofs over their head, food in their stomachs, taxpayer paid healthcare to go along with their cars, limousines and Hummers have cost the state an additional $7billion with their artificial tantrums and complete disregard for the welfare of their non-corporate constituents.
Now sit back and watch as the quality of life in California plummets: More crime and fewer law enforcement officers; more prisoners in already overflowing penitentiaries; more students crammed in dilapidated classrooms with fewer and lower-paid teachers; more kids thrown out of programs and into the streets; more layoffs and "furloughs"; more poverty without relief; more drug addicts and meth labs in "unincorporated" areas where sheriffs have been laid-off. And don't forget the crumbling infrastructure and the unkempt and unsafe state parks and young people denied the opportunity to go to college and a public health care system on the verge of collapse and a widening class divide between the richest and poorest Californians. Schwarzenegger's "legacy" will be that he tried his best to turn California into a post-apocalyptic Hellscape replicating the dystopian cinematography of one his Sci-Fi movies.
Yup, he played his best Kindergarten Cop in True Lies fashion.  Somehow they seem to get things done in Nevada.  We even have the occasional nice cop.

This just in, General Franco Michael Jackson is still dead.  I hope Lompoc gets some of the tourist dollars, they would appreciate it and people would discover a town where the air smells of flowers.  Oh, and to that paper that I no longer link to, Michael Jackson is not getting weirder in death, the coverage is.

Mine isn't worth the paper it's printed on.  And it certainly isn't worth the money it took to get it.

Kick his ass to the curb and don't look back.  There is no marriage to work on and it would be better for the kids if they saw that at least one parent had respect for themselves.  If it had been a single incident or partner maybe he could be forgiven.  But once your husband of twenty years has babbled in public about his soul mate and it isn't you, there is nothing left to save. It's time to move on with your life and find somebody who respects you.

Perhaps if the movie industry had actors instead of stars and good writing instead of explosions every five seconds and it didn't cost $10 for a ticket to a movie where the credits are almost as long as the  movie, maybe the industry wouldn't be in such trouble.
