There yet may be hope for California

Meathead's pet "fuck the rich" Proposition 82 was rejected.

"I want to extend an invitation to our opposition, to those who voted against universal preschool, who have all said preschool is the right thing," Reiner said. "They might not agree with how we wanted to do it, but I'm here to ask them to help us -- come up with another way."
Nice snarky spin, Meathead. We didn't reject preschool education, we rejected your blatant attempt at 1) yanking four-year-olds into a state school system that is already broken and rife with your brand of polemics 2) attempting to fund it solely through an appeal to class warfare.

You want to encourage preschool education? Try to make it easier on Californians to actually, you know, afford to live here, and give parents a lot more choice in having one parent stay home with the little ones.

And vouchers for K-12.

- Poor Rob.... Still trying to find his 'stuck in the 60's lost hippy grove, and this little jewel of a pure "redistribution of wealth" social welfare had it all. It even lets him play the "victim", now that he and his pet idea got booted to the curb. I guess he doesn't understand that the "rest of us" don't care to raise the one's his Libtard gaggle don't manage to abort. Nice try though.....

- Oh.... and I left out the half a million babies we got to pay for the delivery for out of the state budget; the spawn of the "hardworking" illegals that inundated the state between '98 ands '02. There you go. Wonder how many more bllions that would have cost us.

I just want to point out that KCAL ran the anti-Reiner South Park Episode "Butt-Out" the night before the election. Don't tell me EVERYONE in TV has lost their sense of humor....

I don't have any problem with his heart being in the right place, although with all the junk food he gorges on since he quit smoking, his poor hearts going to explode one of these days. Its where his head is at thats the problem. If the Liberals would just stop trying to find ways to help me spend my hard earned money, I think I can do that perfectly well myself thank you very much, I might actually vote for one sometime. And lately the Republicans aren't any better. A pox on both their houses, says I.

This was just another lame attempt by Meathead to build another power base to support his eventual run for governor. We saw how he used the money his previous ballot proposition generated to promote himself and his interests, and enough californias saw the light to kick him to the curb.
