Its official, that tax and spend piece of dreck, Gray Davis, is
history. The California Elections board, just certified that the 1.2
million (not all counted by any means G) signatures are valid and are
grounds for the first Recall election in California history to proceed.

Now let the Democrap/Liberal/Socialist whining begin.
Neener neener neener.

Suggested Democrat hate topics:

Conservatives want to starve your children.
Conservatives want to deport all illegal aliens ...(well we do. G
Conservatives want to poison the land, water and air
Conservatives want a business friendly California. ( Bad Thing!)
Conservatives want to kick grandma out into the snow
( In Orange Country??????)
Darrel Isa bought 1.6 million votes,
(including a significant number of Democrat ones)
to recall Davis. by spending $1 millon dollars.

Im sure your spinmeisters can think up a few more...s******.


Sorry Gunner,

Gray Davis is an idiot--It would make absolutely no difference if he were
republican or conservative or whatever..........Still an idiot.........

Something to be said about those idiots that elected him--I doubt he would
ever have been elected in any *other* state.......

=========

Looks like our Gov ( Gary Locke ) is not gonna run again........He hasnt
done too bad here, IMO.

One of the major contenders will be will be Christine Gregoire, our current
AG........I would have some derogatory statements for her in regards to some
taxation issues, but will refrain as I have a family member works as an
attorney in her office.

Be ready Gunner, the whining is really going to kick in now.
When I encounter those idiots who feel Davis should remain in power I ask them
one question. I ask them if they feel they are undertaxed. If they answer no,
then I say the state must be spending too much money then. Of course they don't
want to admit to that and go off on some other tangent.

I think it's premature to call him 'history'. Davis has been
behaving like an idiot so far, but he CAN be an effective
campaigner; and the full might of the Democratic party (and
those who don't want a Republician in office) will start
lining up behind him.


Quite true..but the full weight of the Democratic Party means dick at
this point. Those signatures mean the people are ****ed off and no
amount of whining and tearing of hair is gonna keep that smuck in
office. I rather hope the Demonrats do spend a ****load of money trying
to keep him in. That means their war chest will be depleted come
November of next year.

This kind of reminds me of Argentina as it was collapsing,
where there were vicious political fights over who was going
to be steering what was basically a sinking ship...

FW

Quite true. Now we need someone with balls enough to beach the ship,
and make drastic repairs.

I assume you heard about the Dem Leftists getting their meeting
broadcast over the Squawk boxes in Sacto the other day? The meeting
where they discussed keeping the state in crisis so to further their own
personal agendas? Typical..****ing typical of the Left. Put Grandma
out on the street simply to stay in power.

He will be history only if enough folks show up on election day to oust him.

Didn't Arnold star in a movie called "Total Recall" ?

Political experts say that Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamonte, would become governor
in the event of a recall according to state constitution. Interesting,
since he is
the one who decides on the topic of a double election, the second part would
select a new governor???

Well SVL, it is a good thing you are not under the illusion you are Gunner.G

You have combined words that don't belong together. The word ethical shall not
be used in conjunction with political policy or taxes.

I believe that if so-called sin taxes are imposed, and they shouldn't be, the
money should NOT go into the general fund. It should be used for the reason
they claimed they needed the money in the first place.
A good example is the 25 cent per pack tax on cigs that was passed over ten
years ago. All that money was to be spent on education and healthcare issues
involving smoking.
Well, a couple years later, some people decide the mountain lions need
protection. They get a proposition on the ballot and it was passed by voters.
It means that mountain lions are protected from hunting and land is being
purchased to give them a place to live.
Part of the money being used to buy the land is coming from the 25 cent cig
tax. It was right there in the fine print of the proposition.
What the hell do mountain lions have to do with smoking?
These so-called sin taxes are simply cash cows for the big spenders.
Just like the state of Rhode Island suing everybody who sold lead-based paint
in the state. Absolute bullcrap.

We have a big problem with voters approving these "feel good" propositions. The
money collected by these taxes is soon diverted to other uses. And the people
who voted for it could care less about it. They already did their "feel good"
duty.

Just because a recall election is being held doesn't mean it's official that
he will be recalled, that's why it's called an "election".
If he is recalled, he'll be replaced by another politician.


Now let the Democrap/Liberal/Socialist whining begin.
Neener neener neener.


Comparing a Democratic politician to a Republican politician is like
comparing a red-headed child molester to a blonde child molester, they're
both child molesters.

grounds for the first Recall election in California history to proceed.




I always knew there was something revolting about California.


And what would that be? That the system works? That the
people could get fed up with a govenor and dump him?

I'll tell you what was revolting about California, that
in november neither of the parties could put anyone of
quality on the ballot. And we're trying to fix that
now.

Im sure your spinmeisters can think up a few more...s******.

Just a few facts asshole,
Republican president, forced from office. (Richard, "I am not a crook"
nixon)

Republican VP, resigned after being convicted of felony tax evasion.
(spiro agnew

Republican state rep. george petak, recalled, the only successful
recall on any state level in the 20th century.

And lest we forget, the newt and his tax evasion that didn't work.

Good record, huh? All conservatives have two faces, the one they
show, and the crooks they are.

The thing that really surprises me is that you could
like either party. They both have plenty of scumbags
and I know you're smart enough to know that. So what
is it that causes you to like democrat scumbags and hate
republican scumbag?

Obvious: it's the *exact* same thing that causes
gunner to drool over republican scumbags and detest
democratic ones.

This kind of reminds me of Argentina as it was collapsing,
where there were vicious political fights over who was going
to be steering what was basically a sinking ship...

In CA, the ship has sunk, the fighting is over how many holes to punch
in the lifeboats...

Maybe you can convert them.......Should be easy, provided they have

None. that I know of.

We obviously don't have a monopoly on that.

Definitely no monopoly there. We in Tennessee have revolted the past several
years. I and my 2 yr old were right there on the capital steps holding signs
with the rest. We didn't get the taxes the Dems tried to foist on us. The
traitor governor realized he would never be elected again and didn't even
run.

Doomed to negativity, e.g. flame wars. There's one going on right now in
fact.
BTW you forgot to answer my question.
