´California did the impossible,´
Brown says in State of the State

Los Angeles Times, by Evan Halper

SACRAMENTO -In a strident and sweeping State of the State address, Gov. Jerry Brown declared Thursday morning that "California did the impossible," bouncing back from the precipice of fiscal collapse to emerge as an economic leader. With references to the Bible, the history of the California republic and Irish poet William Butler Yeats, Brown mapped out a vision for the state that includes big investment in its water and rail systems and schools free of regulations that he says inhibit flexibility and creativity. Brown also called a special session of the Legislature for implementation of President Obama´s healthcare law,

Gov. Moonbeam has been smoking those mushrooms again. CA, economic leader? He isn´t kidding anyone.

I see Brown is trying to top Obama in the lying department. Calif has cooked the fiscal books for decades. The state has 500 billion in unfunded state worker pensions alone. That doesn`t even begin to address the interest payments on bonds voted by taxpayers going back decades. Add to that all being spent on illegals, high speed rail, free cell phones, etc., and we have a fiscal nightmare that can never be overcome. Brown should be impeached for making such a foolish statement, but then there are scores of other lefties waiting in the wings to take his place.

Brown and CA did the impossible by winning The Guinness Book of World Records for incompetence and corruption over MA, IL and NY.

Amazing, isn´t it, Moonbeam? California managed to place the state´s populace into socialist shackles without much of a struggle at all. Even more amazing than getting your pet Tabby to swallow her tranquilizer pill before a car ride.

Bounced back? Yeah, right. Lately, I´ve found myself thinking like #11. What if none of this matters in the grand scheme? Just like in the 1950s when the WWII debt was just "written off". Maybe this is all a paper accounting game fabricated to create angst among the unwashed to ensure the continued rule by the elite? (Adjusting tin foil hat)

See if you can spend those "projected" revenues befoe the actual dollars come in, Jerry. Somehow, I think your anticipated revenue bonanza from higher taxes is not goig to materialize as you hope.

"I will not let the students become the default financiers of our colleges and universities," Brown said...

nor food, housing, healthcare, cell phones, dental care, cable, utilities, or anything else he can think of.

Seems the liberal dream is supporting those who vote for them, with the money of those who work.

They´ve been saying California´s bouncing back since ´09. I guess that prevents Jerry and the Democrats from sinking into clinical depression when faced with reality.

Governor Brown should watch a couple of Judge Judy´s cases, often in California, where (usually) the girl student takes the proceeds from her student loan, gives it to a boy who she thinks is her boyfriend (although he might have several girl students to sponge off of) and she ´lends´ him money for an I pod, cell phone, skinny tires and spinner rims for his car, tattoos, and the like.
The Governor could also see cases where the ´student´ enrolls in an on line college, drops out in the first month, and scores some student loan money along with some pell grant money.

I love how liberals count their tax dollars before the revenue makes it to the till. Somehow, time after time, the revenues are far smaller than expected. The job creators keep fleeing the state. The Gross State Product keeps falling, resulting in lower incomes to tax.

President Obama on Friday signed into law a bill authored by Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz that would bar an Iranian diplomat from entering the United States, but immediately issued a statement saying he won´t enforce it. Obama decided to treat the law as mere advice. "Acts of espionage and terrorism against the United States and our allies are unquestionably problems of the utmost gravity, and I share the Congress´s concern that individuals who have engaged in such activity may use the cover of diplomacy to gain access to our Nation," Obama said in his signing statement.

It’s Good Friday. Time for the leftwing president to do something bad. Barack Obama just punted on the Keystone Pipeline, again, and some Democrats say they are angry at him. The Obama administration once again has punted on a final decision for the Keystone XL pipeline, announcing ahead of the holiday weekend it is extending a key review period indefinitely — a move that could push off a determination until after the midterm elections. Republicans, as well as red-state Democrats who want the proposed Canada-to-Texas pipeline approved, slammed the administration for the delay. Democrats even threatened to find ways to

A church in Grapevine, Texas, is getting into the Easter spirit this week by creating a giant chalk-portrait of Jesus Christ in their parking lot. Fellowship Church is led by Pastor Ed Young, who started the evangelical Christian church in 1990 with about 150 people in Irving. They now have 10 church campuses worldwide. His father is Dr. Ed Young, the head of Second Baptist here in Houston. According to church spokesman Andy Boyd, the 17,000-square-foot drawing of the face of Jesus took 700 volunteers over 9,100 man-hours to create. They also used 6,700 individual pieces of chalk and 125

The Obama administration is extending the agency review period for the Keystone XL oil sands pipeline, potentially delaying the decision until after the November elections -- sparing President Obama a tough political decision in the process. A senior State Department official said agencies have stopped crafting comments because a Nebraska Supreme Court decision could change the pipeline route and, ultimately, the environmental, socioeconomic and cultural factors that went into the environmental review. The official did not directly answer a question whether an altered pipeline route would require a new environmental review.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
