    I'm a bit disturbed that one of his main campaign issues was repealing the car tax. That's just the kind of "increase conspicuous consumption of resources, reduce tax revenue" popular stances that we need our politicians to take these days.

    I like Ahnold, and his wife is (i believe) a Kennedy (whatever that may mean), but the days of "popular" politicians need to end if anyone is ever to give the kind of political leadership necessary to get the US out of the hole it's in.
    There's no 'a' in perlite.

    I think he'll do better than Davis...I really don't care what he does as long as he gives schools more money...

    I bet if you dug deep into his platform (The whole 1/2 page woohoo&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] You'd find he promises sequels for every one of his movies!(boohoo)

    Exclamation

    Hi,

    How could anyone think that celebrities lie less than lawyers!? Their whole life is built on lying. Arnold's father was a Nazi in Austria long before Hitler (an Austrian) marched across the border and claimed Austria. Arnold's statements about admiring Hitler appear in court documents concerning the million dollar fee he paid to a writer not to do a book. You don't think Arnold played grab *** on movie sets? Well, how about buying some Florida swamp land.
    I agree dark days are ahead. Did anyone see Nightline tonight and its report on the state of our schools? It was shocking. We are literally starving the essentials of life and putting a BASIC good life out of reach for more and more people so a relative few can enjoy indulging themselves in Hummers, mansions and luxury. We have taken so much money out of the public good and so celebrated the lone selfish "successful" individual that we cannot even see real priorities anymore. The whole thing is hopelessly ruined. Once you allow people to indulge in so much comsumerism you can never get dull, boring, unsexy things like the needs of education, health care, etc to matter again. The wealthy kids can always get good schools and the rest will be better drones if left uneducated. Just pass alot of unfunded accountability laws so the numbers look good for the media and parents. It's a sad sad joke.
    I am always amused by Republicans and money. They never bat an eyelash about asking for, going into debt for and spending money for war, war, war. 87 billion will just appear and it has to according to them. Now, whenever a social program is involved, the Republicans instantly proclaim there is no money; higher taxes will be needed and it is all a waste. Well, what is war but waste? It's funny how people always find tons of money for what they actually care about -- as opposed to just bs about.
    I also love Republicans and government. Since that old fool Reagan, the Repubs have trained the American people that the American govn't is horrible -- how patriotic of them!. That it is wasteful. That is does no good. That politicians are horrible liars. Except while serving up all this ideological bs, the Repubs have been busy using ever trick, lie and shortcut they could to win as many elected offices as they could. I have to ask, aren't their actions fundamentally a big fat lie? Why are they trying to be elected to something they say is horrible and why are they becoming politicians when all politicians are liars? Bait and switch shell game -- that's why!At least Democrats honestly believe gov't is good. What level of cynicism does it reveal in Repubs when they crave at any cost winning elections while all the time damning our gov't? The duplicity is damning here and no one ever calls them on it.
    The country is living beyond its means and its not because of taxes -- California has insanely low property taxes which is California's whole problem. We have trained ourselves to be nothing but consumers. We value nothing but the market and marketing. Reagan's siren song of unregulated capitalism and the perfection of the market as a means to both explain and give value to EVERYTHING in life has led to the moral corruption of the whole country. Nothing has meaning anymore but money and what it sells and can buy. As a country we no longer care about the unsexy essentials as they take our money and give us no fun, no instant gratification, no bang for our buck -- they just built a once great nation. We are allowing our real assets to die so we can drive Hummers and play 24/7. Their is nothing more morally corosive than marketing as the meaning of life and that is what we have. We don't even know what is real anymore and the fault lies totally with the Republicans. They have ruined this country and bamboozled the people with easy answers and subtle appeals to dumb anger and hate.
    I think the Democrats whimped out. They should have dumped Davis and gotten one of their real players elected. Once again, they played it safe and nice and the conniving Repubs ran all over them with their unchecked willingless to do anything to win, win, win (in a job and function they campaign on as being horrible&#33[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
    Oh, well, I guess they can now expose some more CIA operatives by using all their buds in the right wing Bush loving major media. I have news for ya, the media has not been liberal since the 1970's. They really are patriots. Now we can thank them for giving us another Vietnam too.

    Wow! Nice rant biggun110!!! I love a good rant, especially when I agree with it!

    Anyway, my friend came up with a good slogan for Gov Arnold:
    "Schwarzenegger: Groping for answers"

    What I meant to those who differed, was I am very down on Republicans -thats why dark days are ahead. I used to vote Republican consistently. I blame unwise stewardship of the economy,our civil liberties, etc. on Republicans. I would most definitely vote for Democrats because at least they think(debate things). What I mean here is if you ever watch C-span and see the voting process, you will notice more Democrats at least voting different from their party. Republicans are puppets(sorry for the inflammatory comment) just watch C-span and see their solidarity in voting one way. Democrats debate issues more often and divide on issues, which is healthy- the "yays and nays have it".
