Californians - Don't Forget to Vote!!!

California Special Election


Yes, today is a special day in California in which we are having a statewide special election on all kinds of wonderful propositions to help mismanage the state's money. Initially I thought about taking a pass on voting, then realized if me and all the other no people didn't get our butts out there to vote, and only the yes people voted, then they would pass.

Of course, the newspapers pundits are doing their best to talk people out of voting. The polls had barely opened, when a little after 7:00 a.m, our delightful Sacramento Bee says online:

"Voter apathy toward today's special election is being reflected at mostly empty polling places and also at Sacramento County election headquarters."



Aarrggg! They must really think we are stupid. Both conservatives and liberals alike all think these propositions are bad for the state. Let's take the revenues from the state lottery which was originally designed to all go to the schools for educational purposes, take it away from them and use it to balance the state budget. And Let's set up a 'rainy day' fund to only be used in times of economic downturn and other purposes. Meanwhile we have our legislators sitting pretty in the capital, wasting money and everyone's time as they argue and whine, poor pitiful me --- I need more money to study dog poop or why the sky is blue.


Don't Forget to Vote!

Edited to Add - Results are in and the people have spoken

All the 'rob peter to pay paul' measures were defeated.

1F passed which prevents the legislators from giving themselves pay raises during deficit years.

  1. I really don't envy you. Hopefully, Cali will get its budget sorted out! I just can't imagine how government can use money that isn't there own so badly. I'm sure most of them would never run their households that way... Okay, I'm not sure about that. lol

  3. I almost didn't get out there to vote either and then I thought the same thing you did: "what if all the yes people voted and all the no people didn't?" I got myself out there and put in my vote!
