At Least I'm Enjoying The Ride

It was national news last February when California instituted the largest tax increase in the history of any state, attempting to close a $42 billion budget shortfall.

It still wasn't enough, and we are now faced with an additional $24 billion shortfall.
The Democrats in Sacramento are vowing to raise taxes yet again, come hell or high water.

This was after the voters rejected a round of tax increases at the ballot box just a month ago.

It's unlikely that enough Republicans will go along this time in order to satisfy the 2/3 requirement for tax increases, but, we believed that last time. See what good it did us?

Gov. Schwartzenegger has vowed, in no uncertain terms, to veto any tax increase that comes before him. We believed that last time, as well.

The sooner this whole state goes to hell the better off we'll all be.

On a positive note:
Tonight, I blew past a highway cop at 85mph. It's about the only thing I like about living in California, and Riverside County, especially.
