    Anyone might wonder if the California Republican gubernatorial nominee will be taking any campaign contributions?! A green campaign website, with a Conservative Section(?)!

    Meg Whitman for Governor of California

    The answer is in "The Plan" at the website! Get everybody they can on the mailing list! Then presumably, they sell it. . . .or actually. . . !!

    The "issues" examples are, (1) Immigration--Let The Federal Government Fix it, (2) Energy, support the liberal, Renewables Portfolio legislation from 2002--lin effcect, et the liberals fix it, (3) Support the Death Penalty, Build Even More Prisons--let the "Criminals" fix themselves(?), (4) Increase teacher pay-Let CALPERS fix it(?), and (5) to balance the budget, make the state legislatures into part-time employment--Let the Lobbyists Fix It(?)!

    Apparently, this is what the "Executives" learn about issues in "Big Business." There is old dictum, "outsource everything, except for your soul." In this case, Meg Whitman need to regurgitate at least one thing she should have learned: Don't outsource the budet and spending authority!

    CALPERS is already busted. Building more prisons, and putting all the state employess in them: Is not a plan. Prisons are not affordable housing for retirees!

    As it to say so: Outsourcing the budget and spending authority is probably one way to get it done!

    This is what comes of allowing the wealthy to buy an election. Poor California -- a non-choice between two idijits, Whitman and Brown.

    BTW, a part-time legislature is not an altogether bad idea. But her other initiatives suck....sounds as if she's trying to please everyone and that cannot be done.

    I find it surprising that she is "suddenly" in support of a part time legislature. John and Ken (conservative radio talk show hosts) asked her to help support that measure by helping pay for the petition drive to get it on the ballot. She blew them off.

    Sanity in high tech is not genuinely achieved with part-tme people on the job. Bigger staffs, more specialties and specialists actually do better service to humanity, even at large. . . .well. . .as it is!

    The casting couch has its place. Nobody calls it a role model of efficient, well-run, organizations.

    Actually, what anyone learned from the California GOP primary is that they are fairly all solidly behind the concept of federal deficit financing: Especially when it kills U. S. Nationals on the ground in foreign nations!

    The totals just for this nomination exceed $100.0 mil.

    That is not exactly Nobel Peace Prize money. . . .not that there was any at all this last time out!

    The GOP nominees probably know far more about doll houses and tea parties, at their age: Than is healthy!

    The GOP has two nominees that want to be compared to the CEO of BP, at this time--plunging his corporate stock values at 40% or more. The federal deficit actually doesn't seem to work for him!

    Clearly it did for the GOP nominees in California.

    The guy that wrote this article must be on Jerry Browns payroll. One of the things i see on the news when they talk about the governors race here is how Meg Whitman has laid out a comprehensive plan for the voters to read, including an actual budget proposal, and all Brown will say is that he plans to work with the legislature on a comprehensive budget plan after he gets elected. That plan you are scoffing at lays the responsiblity for the problems where it squarely belongs, and then lays out what she plans to do if those responsible will not do their jobs. Take a gander at what she actually says about immigration, and the other issues, before you buy into this tripe.

    Meg used to support Barbara Boxer, but republicans have discovered it's helpful to run as far right as possible. Look at poor McCain.
