The problem with protests is that the "issues" rarely get discussed. Having said that, this bitch adores a good protest! Riots, marches, and sit-ins - I love them all. I usually don’t stay longer than I can last without peeing (a bitch has issues with public toilets), but toss in a clean public restroom and I’m down for the cause!
So, a bitch was eager to read the dish on the boo-fest that took place at Santa Monica College during graduation. The Governator returned to his sorta kinda alma mater to address the class of 2005. He was booed by some in the crowd and the traveling protestors who follow him as if he were the Grateful Dead.
What's their beef? A bitch did some investigative journalism and found the basic dish...according to CNN.
Arnold (we are so not tight like that..a bitch is being familiar) has called for a Special Election in California to address…well…to take down the folks who hate him. The Special Election will cost the state around $45 million dollars. Wow, that’s what a bitch calls a return to fiscal sanity!
Arnold is taking on special interest groups in Cali-for-ni-ah – teachers (those evil doers), nurses (nasty anti-government radicals) and public employee unions (Communists…Republicans can’t stand Communists).
Arnold proposes the following; a cap on state spending (after he shells out $45 mill, of course), stripping lawmakers of the power to draw their own districts (Republican power grab move #1 – they did this shit in Texas and consolidated power in one fell swoop) and increasing the time it takes for teachers to gain tenure (because, Lawdy, there is a run on teacher positions – Jesus, we have more applicants than jobs…not!).
A bitch is concerned for the people of California. The Devine One weighed in on the issue with an off-coast 7.0 magnitude earthquake. Translation – get your shit together! Oh, and don't go to the fucking beach when there's a Tsunami warning. Dumb shit! Better yet...go and do the world a favor!
Anyhoo, special elections make sense when the issues being addressed are pressing. But this shit really is weird. The worst part is that some Californians chose this asshole. Okay, maybe they had a legitimate issue with Gov. Davis, but was Arnold really necessary?
To wrap up, Arnold gave his speech and then rushed into his waiting SUV (was it a Hummer?) and made for Orange County or wherever the conservative compound is.
Now, Missouri has its own fucked up Governor and I have no idea how to get rid of him early. I’m not trying to piss in California’s Corn Flakes when there’s a turd floating in mine. I’m just concerned.
And a wee bit jealous.
Why can't we get a crowd together and follow Blunt around booing? He sucks just as much as Arnold...if not more! We can't afford teachers, our schools produce illiterate chil'ren, and he's not even aware that the Civil War is over! Oh...he's a homophobe too! Oh, oh...he also hates unions! Did I mention that he hates black people?
So, can we have a shout fest in Jefferson City?
With all the bullshit being produced down there, a bitch is sure that they’ve got nice toilets!
On second though, fuck it. That makes as much sense as going to the beach to catch that Tsunami heading in...
