It was different under Arnold than under the rubber stamp of Gray Davis.

But there was only so much Arnold could to to cut costs when the legislature would not approve his budget.

Now the question is back on you. What SHOULD be done in order to balance spending, taxes, and government services? Specifics please, no vague statements.

Bob.
do you get your knickers in a knot when people run a red light? or deface a dollar bill to stick up on a bar wall? probably so.
you are confusing legality with morality. i personally tend to think for myself, as human history has taught us that laws are not infallible nor are they absolutes worth bowing down to without question. america is a freethinking country. my own personal ethical code considers war to be immoral. unfortunately war is not illegal. so i do not consider there to be anything wrong with marijuana use within reason, and you forget that it actually is NOT illegal for those with a prescription. so your point was?

How is this good? I can't believe how ass backwards some Californians think when it comes to politics... By keeping it a 1 party system, you are accelerating California's descent into the toilet.

One party politics hasn't worked for America the last 2 years and it isn't going to help California now.

Ah-nold could only do so much without the 1 party legislature resisting him at every step.

BTW.. I am a Chicago guy looking at business schools in SoCal which is why i was watching the Cali elections.

At the risk of getting into a pissin match with you, the last time I checked, "illegal" means against the law.
According to federal law, ANY use of MJ is illegal.
Here in Ca, it is legal for medical purposes only.
Recreational use is "illegal", both here, and on the federal level.
Again, what part of the word Illegal don't you understand?
Bob.

Do yourself a favor and stay in the Midwest; a Republican in California is doomed to ostracism and ridicule. Have you looked at business schools in Oklahoma or Nebraska?; I think you would be happier close to home.
