He's got me by the gnards either way if he threatens to shorten the school year. So long as everyone else gets their hands dirty too.

A fool w/ the brain the size of a newt's could have seen this coming... That and what is coming ahead. No thanks. Can't vote. Come November, won't be a resident of California. Next up is the equally ridiculous federal deficit and the resultant hoonage that will kick off starting in 2013.

I place the largest share of blame on the public unions and their outta-sight pensions and benefits.

I'm not willing to sacrifice more until they do.

Let Hollywood make up the deficit. They've been whining for years about how we all should be paying higher taxes.

They can start.

It's about time state employees living high on the hog encounter reality - chop all state salaries by 20%, layoff as many as needed...why should state employees get treatment that is way above the private sector?

And 6th grade teachers should not be making $50-60k, they should be paid $10-15/hr without any benefits because that is what the private sector would pay them.

As a Engineer I have been laid off twice in the last 5 years despite having stellar credentials and experience, the salary in my field is also going down down down each year due to outsourcing... why are state employees immune to this at the expense of everyone else? LAY THEM OFF, CUT THEIR PAY!! We don't want higher taxes.

Ixnay on the taxes, other than a few narrow niches (e.g. Dot Bomb 2.0) the economy is still on life support.
