AHT of the Day
Legislative Democrats want to spend $3.5 Billion of the “budget surplus” the State “has” to give the money to schools (read: Teachers Unions). The problem is, of course, that just yesterday the Controller was complaining that because Thanksgiving was so late, the State was short $440 Million in anticipated sales tax revenue for the year.

But for whatever reason San Francisco bought into the hype about a race that few people care about and even less would pay the price of a ticket to watch.
Stockton is pretending to exit bankruptcy without actually addressing the primary issue that helped put them in bankruptcy to begin with – crushing pension debt. The Mayor is acting the fool, trying to hire a walking harassment suit and turning the subsequent fallout into a three year circus, more crime and higher taxes, but no real plan to actually solve the problem.
Should a former Illegal Immigrant, who worked for years under a stolen Social Security Number, be hired by the Prison System to be a guard?
