And We Have a Budget… Yuck.

Yes, my dears, California now has a budget. So what happened? Abel Maldonado got his silly “open primary” (Or did he? It first has to be approved by us the voters in 2010… Hehe.) so he can run for Controller. Some environmental laws have been weakened or delayed so people can die and big polluters…

Wherein The Governator Attempts to Regain Relevance

Wow.
