Remember those other 9 states with HUGE budget gaps?
Ten most troubled states in the U.S. - Nov. 11, 2009

Arizona, Florida, Illinois, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, Oregon, Rhode Island and Wisconsin... this is very likely coming to those state university systems, as well.

There is no inflation. The CPI under control. Health care, home insurance, car insurance, energy and tuition prices are very affordable.

The funny thing is that most of these people rioting most likely voted for Obama. It's hilarious to see them want something then not like it when they get it and riot.

A great example of an issue where right wing lemmings will take the side of the rich over their own family's well being.

They want less public funding of Universities making tuition that much more expensive for middle class youth.

If they were in charge only wealthy elites could afford to send their children to College.

Western Countries throughout the World provide free or deeply discounted tution for their young adults because they know it pays for itself over and over again in more productive workers.

Only here in the US will you find this bizarre ideology that has white middle class and poor men arguing against a benefit for their kids and grandkids....LOL

Their only satisfaction is knowing some brown skinned kid is not getting any of their money...

ooh look, here comes the right wing attacks based upon nothing other than "feelings" and "hate"...

They want less funding resulting in more expensive tuitions? boo hoo hoo.. They want people to pay for what they get, you however dont mind whining and crying for more handouts to benefit the few, (in this instance college students) while those not attending the college have to pickup the tab.

This is what happens when the government artificially lowers what the real cost of something is, and then has to increase it due to the inability to continue to substain it. PERIOD. Dont worry though pad, you'll have pleanty of instances of looking foolish while attacking the right as many costs come into line to what they really are and governments have to cut back to continue subsidizing other "pet" projects..

You might have been able to pass off your hate much easier, if it wasnt for the fact we are talking about CALIFORNIA. We all know where they lie on the political spectrum and it sure in hell isnt on the right side.

And there's a bridge for sale in Brooklyn.



People in California have been getting free things from the state gubmint for many years, and voting for the bureaucrats who give them to them.

Now the cupboard is bare.

Time to pay, not only for the education you're getting now, but also for the education the people came before you, got back then.

What goes around, is now coming around. It was inevitable, actually.

It's not about that at all - you let your hate and bias get in the way of critical thinking and rational analysis... not at all unusual for liberals - they 'feel,' they don't think.
