Schwarzenegger flips off the legislature

Here's the backstory to this signing statement:


Bottom Line: He may be overfond of dams, but he's pretty damn funny sometimes. (Oh, and California's legislature really does FAIL when it comes to "fixing" the policy problems that they've made...)

  1. That letter sums up the Governor's time in office.

    It's a joke.

    As for the legislature and the governor, I'd say that we've gotten exactly what we've asked for. We wanted 2/3rd's rule, constantly lower and lower taxes, full-time, yet term-limited politicians, &etc.

    Back in the late 90's, we decided that we wanted a taxing mechanism that would cut taxes during an economic boom, and then dramatically raise them when our economy turns sour. Need I say more? We don't even make people pay for the one thing we can consistently offer, the one thing that determines market value in real estate, for goodness' sake!
