"I can move on, unfortunately you cannot." Apparently, you can't. You just had to respond to my previous post.
No I know that and I've stated that before with people that call me argumentative, which I am.

The difference between you and me though is that I don't keep bringing up the same crap over and over that had already been discussed several times just to argue some more. Or I won't try to make a pointless argument about how if I don't spoonfeed you information then I am pretending to know what I am talking about just keep arguing. I don't argue for the sake of arguing, YOU DO and that is the difference between you and me.

I don't believe the voters in this state have ever met a project they don't want to fund. It's as if most of them have no idea that a bond actually needs to be repaid. As to those who vote for a bond measure just because it affects them positively; that I really don't understand. Where do you get the idea that taxpayers should be on the hook for your pet project. We can't even afford to maintain the infrastructure we have in place and now we're expected to fund a high-speed rail from south to north?! I'd call it unbelievable, but not much surprises me anymore.

The only thing I'd vote in favor of adding to California is a mandatory economics class in order to pass high school or to run for public office.

The results are some what interesting. Most of the support came from the northern coast which is to be expected (after all, many of these people wish they were Euro). Southern California was much less supportive of the measure with Los Angeles County only voting 55% in favor (with 90% of votes counted).
Where as Ventura, San Diego, San Bernardino, Riverside and Orange counties all voted "no".

Election Results - November 4, 2008 - California Secretary of State (http://vote.sos.ca.gov/Returns/props/map19000000001A.htm - broken link)

I guess the rest of the state gets to pay for the Euro fantasy of the Northern Coast. Hopefully the state is never able to sell the required bonds.

You're delusional and probably the biggest hypocrite yourself, REREAD the entire thread and you'll see you kept bringing up the same crap over and over despite myself addressing the issue repeatedly. And I even addressed that several times throughout the thread. But go ahead and keep lying to yourself and telling yourself whatever you need to so you can make it through day believing you actually have any damn clue what you're talking about. Ignorance must be bliss for you...

odd that it was only 55% when la county voted a supermajority to approve a higher sales tax to the whole county to fix a few local issues that dont deal with most of the county

Wait, LA approved that 1% sales tax? So its 9.25% now? What is this, Chicago? What's next, a county income tax?

Yeah I'd hate to be a big box retailer close to the OC line now. That's a $75 difference on a $5000 purchase.
