    I have decided to be nicer to rdean, so I will save him the trouble of coming in here and blaming the Republicans for this.

    Those nasty Republicans are at it again, why do they hate poor people? And Science? And minorities?

    And we all know that all California's budget problems are because of the decades of republican controlled Legislature pissing away the money on the rich.

    From the same Jerry Brown that said the trouble with the economy is that too many people were working and not enough people were on welfare.

    » Jerry Brown Flashback: We Need More Welfare and Fewer Jobs - Big Government

    The conventional viewpoint says we need a jobs program and we need to cut welfare. Just the opposite! We need more welfare and fewer jobs. Jobs for every American is doomed to failure because of modern automation and production. We ought to recognize it and create an income-maintenance system so every single American has the dignity and the wherewithal for shelter, basic food, and medical care. I’m talking about welfare for all

    If this is the goal, isn't a science education a waste?

    Pot head Jerry, the former Mr. Jane Fonda, is in a world of hurt. He has to cut social spending or increase taxes on people who are already hurting. I don't envy his position.

    Something like 60 percent of the California budget can not be touched by the Legislature because the voters created the programs and voted them in. Arnold found out he had almost nothing to work with to cut the Budget.

    You know I don't know if this is true or not, I heard it in passing, someone in the gop proposed putting Pell grants and other forms of Obama money on a graduated scale, the full grant if you enroll in scientific curriculum, less for the traditional liberals arts etc...if true I am surprised the screams have not started yet from the left.... I think the idea holds merit.

    as for the OP....*shrugs* seriously, what do we expect? some form or normality from Moonbeam? ;)

    The advantage Jerry Brown has is that anything he proposes will be supported by the liberal media.
