First the good: The country sent a strong message to the Obama Administration that this flouting of the desires of the people will not stand. Some say the GOP taking back the House will lead to gridlock. Well, gridlock is better than the road we were on. Maybe in a couple of years we can get things flowing the right way. Or at least in the right general direction.
Now the bad: While the rest of the country pushed back on the Hope and Change administration, California continued to send a clear message of her own. That message? "We have no clear concept of the value of the dollar!" or "Don't think it can get any worse? Guess again. Jerry Brown, ladies and gentlemen!"
I'm amazed Prop 19 didn't pass here. Everyone is obviously stoned out of their gords. That's not to say I'm even against the legalization of marijuana, I just think it might be a good idea to have an actual plan to deal with it if we do. But it was close, and it won't be long before they make this happen. Hell, this is California, they might even sue to get their way. After all, nothing you disagree with is constitutional anymore (state motto). This morning on the local Fox station they brought in two people to talk about either side of the Prop 19 discussion. One was for it and the other was for it. Seriously, the guy who was against it wants legalization, he just doesn't want people who need it paying taxes. It's an extremely valid point, but couldn't the local news find one single person who was flat out against it? I guess they didn't want to. What else is new?
Oh, and let's not forget the great: So long, Nancy Pelosi, you batshit crazy super bitch. Back to the grave with you!!!
