One Way Out

Here is the top news story as seen on The Drudge Report.

As you can see the link points to California where things are REALLY BAD and GETTING WORSE.

What this all means is that you can’t squeeze blood from a rock. In this case, its the people of California.

MESSAGE TO THE GOVERNOR AND LEGISLATURE: Screw any possiblity of a sales tax hike! (Have I got your attention?!) The hard reality is that you have NOT cut deep enough. Napolitano set you up for this mess. Now you have to clean it up and the only way – the One Way – to do so is to cut deeper. You barely knicked public education and it doesn’t matter if you cut one dime or 100 Million dollars, the education union is still going to bitch and complain.

Here’s the deal, you either make the cuts now or the State of Arizona is going to have to shut down.

You will not get a tax increase because: 1) it will NOT work and 2) the citizens of Arizona are NOT going to give you any more money. They don’t have it or they’re tired of giving the government money.

Are we on the verge of a national tax revolt, a Second American Revolution? I don’t know. But based on everything I’m seeing, it sure seems we are heading that direction.

So all you government employees and teacher union folks, get ready. The cuts are coming. And if you don’t like it, there’s no other way out of this mess. And yes, I am angry as hell and not going to take any more.

One other thing. When California collapses, stand by to welcome a whole lotta Californians.

  1. I really home a member of your family sexually abuses a child in your family so you can call CPS and not get any help. Then maybe you’ll realize what an asinine statement this post was.

  2. Willy, no one should wish that in anybody. That is really a horrible thing to say.

    No matter how much I dislike what is happening with government right now, phrases like “Second American Revolution” give me the willies. I don’t care how you explain it away, it immediately connotes a violent uprising. That kind of rhetoric should be shouted down and rejected out of hand.

    Rusty is right on.

    As for the cuts, and deeper cuts, the GOP budget has over $220 million in cuts. The Govs is still over $70 million. This is on top of midyear cuts of last year’s budget, which was also a cut.

    You have gotten plenty…plenty…of cuts already. They have had an impact. Teachers are being laid off, so is administration, so are staff. Programs are being cut. In our universities, we are losing the best faculty to other states, we are losing the interest in our state of companies like Raytheon, and we are digging a hole at the same time one of the largest generations of our youth is about to enter college.

    There can be no trust, no love, or no hope for the tyrants are that are running this state.

    The only revolution we are about to see is one at the polls this next time. And this time, I hope we stomp them out….and keep stomping until there is little left of this philosophy that seeks to make America poorer and poorer.

    We are already getting too many Californians who haven’t learned a damn thing from their overspending and want to do more of the same here…not all…some have the ability to learn from their mistakes.

    No matter how much anyone bitches, we are in a mess and are going to have to bite the bullet. The best that we can hope for is that the pain is distributed in the same way the good times were..so if you got more than a reasonable share then, you get an equal share of pain now.

  7. When you read stories like this “U.S. Government Funds $400,000 Study on Gay Sex in Argentina Bars,” do you really want to ask why Americans are getting angry about the use of their tax dollars? If anyone should be angry, it should be the teachers in the classroom who are being deprived funding because of the unions and administrations.

  8. kralmajales says

    Teachers are not being deprived funding by unions and administrators. They are being deprived of funding from this state and its elected Representatives…and the Governor as well. THEY are cutting the funding massively…$220 million in the legislature’s budget, not county or school administrators.

    That song and dance just doesn’t impress anymore.

  9. Conservative does not mean Republican says

    kramajales,

    Maybe if you repeat yourself a few more times, what you say will actually be true…oh, wait…the unsupported rhetoric that you keeping spewing on this site will never be true! We have plenty of school funding, but it evaporates before it ever gets to the classroom!

    State spending in the Napolitano administration went up faster than a helium balloon. It far outpaced population growth plus inflation. The pie-in-the-sky Napolitano budget plan, that growth would be infinite, utterly failed. How could she honestly think that we could continue to escalate spending and program future spending, without thinking that the economy might not continue to grow at over 6%?! A responsible person would have realized that it was unrealistic that Arizona would continue to grow at such a rate. They could’ve increased state spending, but done so in moderation, without jeopardizing our state’s future. Now we are left to pick up the pieces.

    The inevitable result is either a tax increase to fund political promises or fiscal restraint. Economics and liberty frown on the former. I commend many members of the legislature for trying to workout the latter.

    One thing that the administration is doing right is that Arizona has just taken a major step towards dismantling race and gender preferences and discrimination in state and local government. Today, The state Senate voted to place an initiative on the 2010 general election ballot barring discrimination against – or preferential treatment for – any individual on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity or national origin. The Arizona House approved identical legislation last week.

    “Today we are giving Arizonans an opportunity to tell our government to end this form of legalized discrimination once and for all,” remarked Rachel Alexander, chair of the Arizona Civil Rights Initiative.

    And most people would agree with Rachel… A recent Quinnipiac University National Poll finds American voters overwhelmingly in favor of abolishing Affirmative Action. The survey also shows voters disagree by more than 3 to 1 with Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor’s ruling in favor of racial preferences in a case involving firefighters in New Haven, CT.

    Conservative does not mean Republican Says,

    What I am spewing is truth buddy, and what you fail to tell the truth on is the history of school funding before Napolitano restored it. What you say is absolutely bogus. Your party has cut education plenty over and over. Inflation also ate at those budgets at the same time. She restored funding that has been lost by past cuts…after 9/11 took its toll on this state…and after this state did not revise its income.

    You hate what I am spewing because Im right and you are about to see that most of the people are on my side, not yours.

  12. kralmajales says

    What is your fear of affirmative action, Linus?
