A rock & a hard place

 

Well, wonder of wonders, those talking head of State Government FINALLY passed a budget! And quess what? Average Joe and Joanne will be paying taxes through the nose and getting less service for their dollar! What amazed me, but not surprised me, our Governor Schwarzenegger made certain that the Film Industry will be getting a big Tax Cut! Excuse me? Well, I guess he realizes that soon he will be out of a job because no citzen in their right mind will vote to keep him in! He may need another acting gig but has his nerve showing his face in the State again! He also made certain that big businesses in the State will get a tax cut. Yes, as always, let keep those Fat Cats well fed on our dollar! Education is taking the biggest cut; I thought we had a State Lottery to help them out but that money is being cut into to pay other State's bills, like the pay of those talking State Heads, I guess! And people, wonder why I drink!

The rich always look after their own and think that the rest of the planet should behave like grateful slaves to them. They forget the word Revolution ... they reap what they sow. Vote him out and vote in a forward thinker who is prepared to do it different. And, I'll share that drink ... cheers!

At least we have a budget!
I'm not thrilled but if this is what it takes to get 4 votes from the Grand Obstructionist Party, maybe folks will think twice before checking their box again.
As a teacher this State is a hostile environment to work in, my district is cutting way back. We'll see if I survive.

I never wondered. I recommend much drinking for many months.

If it weren't for that gorgeous scenery, I'd swear that you live in Ottawa....

Right on there, Aggie. We have similar clowns pretending to govern here too at national, provincial and city levels.

Pour one for me too, K?
