>>our state went deep into debt with him as Governor.

Carol, that sure sounds familiar!

I mean, is there a state that's NOT having $$$ problems right now?

Our Governor is cutting spending everywhere and considering bringing in thousands of slot machines (ugh) but it's not enough to plug the hole in the budget.

Over the river in Virginia, the Governor also has a huge deficit to deal with, in no small part due to their previous Governor's effort to repeal the car tax.

I'm not a Davis supporter, don't live in California, don't really care who wins -- but we all lose when we start playing games like this recall.

From what I've come to gather, the standard for recall is supposed to be malfeasance in office.

Gray Davis may be a dud, a dork and a loser, but the proper recall is known as the next election.

This is not a healthy precedent to be set. :crazy-ii

Great idea!! we could all chip in and get Carol to run. then we move to California and vote for her. She could then pass a law that molded fiberglass traiers are not taxed. :yep I like it. :thumb
We already have that law - KINDA! It is called PTI. They just need to expand it to 17 footers. All camp trailers 16 foot and under qualify for the PTI. Not annual liciense fees.

:)

Tom... your last three lines hit the mark dead center!

If all that was needed was 10% of the registered voters to sign a petition to get a politician ousted from office, imagine what would have happened in the past 10 years... Clinton would have been recalled, Bush Jr would be recalled and we would spend all of our time at the ballots... Kinda why there are Election Days... If you don't think the politician is doing a good job, you can vote him out.

If anyone wants to talk deficits... Try here in NY. We're taxed to the max already, and it's getting worse. I'm single, no kids, and by the time federal, fica, state is taken out, I bring home HALF of my gross. Our sales tax just went up 1 1/2% in my county, and we won't even get into school taxes... since the yahooos in Albany can't seem to pass a budget on time to save their lives every year the schools borrow money which has interest that needs to be paid back.

Of course, I won't complain about the vehicle registration... from what I understand in CA you can't afford to put a new car on the road.

recalls

I agree Eric- us singles get hammered but I am in the south where it's not too bad. Here in TN we have no state tax but we pay 9.5 #@!*^ percent sales tax on EVERYTHING(including my new used dually). Work here also pays nothing, but it beats the west coast and NY for individual freedom and that's what's important to me. In NY or CA I'd have to give up my collectable full autos.

As for CA recalls, perhaps it stinks but it is a law on the California books, and is consistent with one of the main tenets of the Constitution....the right of the people to remove a corrupt politician. This is debatable (kile the reasons for Iraq) but it seems to me that Davis is more than incompetent- he has bought every special interest group and they now run the state by proxy. Sounds like poor judgement on the part of the public to vote Davis into office in the first place.

You had to be here. I have never seen such a dirty compain as the Davis org. ran.

When they got done, there was nothing to vote for. It has already started again.

They just had a report on the news ...

It's going to cost California (taxpayers) millions of dollars to redo all the voting machines to accomodate a ballot with so many candidates.

And the candidates are going to be listed randomly, rather than alphabetically ... so voters will have to wade through hundreds of names to find the stripper (Angel-ine, or whatever).

Talk about hanging chads!

Gov.

At least now the spotlight is off of Minnesota. I bet Jesse is just lovin' this. What is going on in this country? Things just seem to be getting weirder and weirder. :wak Maybe Iraq did put something in the water. And we wonder why the rest of the world is laughing at us. We really ARE in the Matrix, aren't we? You can tell me, I can handle it.:lol

I'v always had a theory about Taxes: It relates to human nature and money in general.
If you are spending your own money on something for yourself, you are careful with the cost and also the quality.
If you are spending your money on something for someone else you really watch the cost and let the quality slide.
If you are spending someone elses money on something for yourself, you really go for the quality and never worry about the cost.
If you are spending someone elses(the taxpayers) money on something for someone else( the taxpayer again) to hell with the cost or the quality.

>>Jesse

Yeah, but Jesse is a world class wrestler ... not an actor.:)

Come to think of it, I like Ronald Reagan.

And Sonny Bono.

Did Roy Rodgers run for anything (except Trigger and Dale?)

more importantly....Jesse was not a "professional politician"...and he did the best job in the debates.....so the voters said "lets' try something differn't".....(once was enough)....:r

as for Roy Rogers remember his story on Johnny Carson?....."...pardonmeroywasthatthecatthatchewed yournewshoes?".....:laugh

Spending my valuable Californian vote

"I hope you are all keeping track of the people running for Governor... We even have a dog to vote for.... "

Dog? There's a dog running for governor? An honest, intelligent animal with a sense of loyalty?

Please tell me the dog's name. That's the one who gets my vote!
