Glad to hear that the worse is over. No sense being worried about what Jerry Brown and the Democrat legislature might do to California. We are well on the road to recovery.

What really peeves me tho, is that to read some of the commentaries on this website, you'd think that some Californians actually WANT the economy to tank just to spite the political party they disagree with.

For too many, the well being of our state is now less important than getting back at the 'other side'.

Well, we see evidence that there is an uptick in jobs-at least online. Hopefully that is a precursor to hundreds of thousands of more jobs in the near future and people will be put back to work, regardless of their party affiliation, we're in this together, we're all Californians.

The last minute Democrat election talking point seems to be how good things are. Not to worry that Jerry Brown will bring the Obama/Pelosi economy to California. Everyone knows the economy is just peachy. All that bad news can be forgotten. Don't hold it against the Dems. Vote them back in. After all it will be ten times worse if you vote Republican. And so on and so on.

Why don't you guys (there are only 4-5 of you) just give it a rest? The campaign is over. Leave us in peace. Heck even the TV will stop running ads soon. How about leaving the City Data Forum to moving talk and quit your politicing.
