    Before I even get into the poll here's something I found interesting:

    Greenberg Quinlan Rosner | New University of Southern California Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences/Los Angeles Times Poll on the California Budget Debate

    MAN! :eek: There goes the idea that encouraging illegal immigrants is going to win the Hispanic vote for Democrats! Looks like Hispanic Voters pay taxes too and are figuring out the Democrats are not on their side!

    As for the poll itself:

    Times/USC Dornsife Poll: California voters want public employees to shoulder more of the state's financial troubles, according to the Times/USC Dornsife poll - latimes.com

    THAT is EXTREMELY BAD NEWS for the money laundering operation of the Democrats. A percentage of those pension dues go right into Democrat coffers.

    If voters in EXTREMELY LIBERAL California are fed up, that can't bode well for the money laundering operations in less liberal states.

    Looks like the tide is turning and voters are fed up with bankrolling the Democrats.

    I LOVE IT!

    The dirty secret of California's voters banning gay marriage? The black and latino vote overwhelmingly sided with the NO gay marriage vote. Ooops!!!!! Liberals blamed mormons of all things for it hahaha!! Guess Salt Lake City bussed mormons in from Utah to vote huh?

    Couple issues with your post there - first of all, there's no such thing as "pension dues". A "pension" is a salary that is continued after retirement. "Dues" are an automatically deducted fee for membership in the union. A cap on pensions, and higher member contribution will have exactly ZERO affect on the union's collection of dues.

    And, just to make it clear - the same percentage of Californians support raising taxes across the board, rather than deep cuts in services.

    California is rapidly becoming a failed Third World State. Their Takers are dangerously close to outnumbering their Producers. Businesses are leaving in droves. Their Socialist Nazi Storm Troopers (Democrats) have been anything but friendly to Business. Chasing Businesses out of State was a miserable blunder. Now who's gonna pay for all their Takers? Because the Takers aren't leaving. Only the Producers are. The Takers will always be there demanding their freebies. Where does California get the revenue to satisfy their Takers now? Their Public Unions have raped the Taxpayers out there for years. Their day of reckoning is here. They can no longer sustain their Taker-State. Something or someone's got to give. I wish them the best of luck out there. They're gonna need it.

    Who said that?


    (and we are well aware that about 70% of the black/hispanic voting community voted for Prop H8...they were unwisely ignored during the pre-election campaigning. That will never, ever happen again.)

    I left California in 1976. It was bad then, and it's gone downhill ever since.

    The 9th district court decides what California wants, not the people. This poll should have polled the court in order to be accurate.

    I have heard (in blog, this board, and elsewhere) liberal after liberal say that some "shadowy" conspiracy of Mormons are to blame for Prop 8 passing (or losing . . . . I mean whichever was bad for the gays, I don't live in CA).

    But the fact of the matter is a lot of minorities like the Hispanics and Blacks were not and are not NOW for gay marriage.

    BTW, we had a gay marriage initiative on the ballot in Ohio (in 2004, as I recall)

    As I recall it went down by something like 70 or 80% I can't recall the exact figure now, but it was HIGH, I remember that!
