Easy there CubanCigar.
I just stepped out to write this, so as not to wake up the rest of the household with the clickitty-clak of my laptop's keyboard.
Farms to the right---farms to the left---and in front of me the faint, fog shrouded outline of the coastline. No zero-lot-line for this kid.
We got gouged by Enron, at a time when Gov. Davis, a Democrat, bought into their lie, hook, line and sinker. That was at a time when the Governor and the Legislature were both from the same side of the aisle.
People using the equity in their house as some sort of credit card is not an exclusive California problem. It is spread all over the nation.
I am not for given money away to illegal aliens, but I would not deny aid to a legal resident just because of his ability to speak proper English.
If English-speaking was a criteria for receiving aid, then there would be huge chunks of Americans, from certain parts of the Nation, who would also have to be denied aid.
As much as it pains me to agree with JS
, see post below your original post, I have no problem with a Gov from one side and a Legislature from the other. As long as they all can get their heads out of their collective asses and work together, then everyone wins.
What we need, whenever there is an impasse, is to lock all of their sorry asses up in one big old room, only water to drink and cold pizza for food and no getting out until they get "it" done.
