The Democrats have ruined California. Most of the votes came from illegals with fake documents who live off the free handouts at the expense of taxpayers. California needs to wake up and deport the illegals and imprison those who use their votes to gain power. Brown did nothing good before and he will do nothing good again. Same with that old hag Boxer. Enough already!

Intel will be constructing a new production facility that will employ 8000 workers. This is a much needed shot in the arm for the business climate. But wait!! You liberals think this is good for California... Actually it's going to be built in Oregon. Once again California liberalism is showing the rest of the Country how they treat big business.
Thanks a lot.

So scott hill thought whitman and fiorina were out of touch with workers. Well he maybe right. Most of the workers are either illegal aliens or green card holders in Ca.These two might have helped the real legal american citizens . SAD

Arnold "balanced" our budget based on the assumption the federal govt would bail us out with 5 billion. Considering last night in the rest of the country, what are the chances the new House will approve a dime's worth of bailout?

2011 is going to be a rough year here.

California voters need to look at the cold hard facts: "State Unemployment Rate Stagnates At 12.4%", Daily Breeze 10/23/2010. The other border states are far better off; Arizona is 10%, New Mexico is 8.4%, and Texas is only 8.4%. Our high unemployment rate can't be blamed on illegals from Mexico.

The real cause is liberal Democrats in the legislature in Sacramento. Thanks to them, we've gone from a surplus to massive debt. Thanks to them, they've made California business unfriendly and pushed our jobs to other states.

When California had a billion dollar surplus, rather than use it to pay down the debt, the Democrats wanted to use the money to start up a "FREE Health Care" program for all children, including illegals.

The Democrats listen to radical environmental groups and block the drilling of oil off our coast. So we buy oil from other nations where they use the money to create jobs in their country.

The Democrats pushed through AB32 that's going to kill even more jobs and drive our energy prices higher. To deny this fact, they point to a study that suggests that AB32 will create jobs. However, in order for this to happen, all the wild assumptions made in the study must be correct. What if some of the assumptions are wrong; Get ready for even higher unemployment.

A scientific study from Spain, "Study about the effects on employment of public aid to renewable energy sources", by Dr. Alvarez, showed that for every 1 green job created, 2.2 other jobs were lost. Thanks to the Democrats, we're about to make the same mistake.

So, over the next few years the rest of the country will recover, but California will continue to go downhill.

Before I start this let me say that I am a life long Democrat sand I am 63 years old. That is a long time to be loyal to my party.

California voters are now brown and union......recipe for the same old way of doing business, which means no business, and no jobs.

California is at the point of bankruptcy. There is no work for the union workers, other than government/public employees and school employees.
Businesses are moving out of the state to find a more friendly state for their business by the hundreds. Unemployment is realistically around 25% in the state and Californians go to the polls and vote the party line even if it hurts the chance for recovery. Our cities and state is absolutely bursting with illegals drawing welfare in some fashion, the gangs and crime and corruption in local government is astonishing. Public pensions are surely going to wipe out the state like the plague.

Last night America recognized that what we are doing is not working and made changes to the balance of power in Washington to try and do something anything to get this country moving again. But not California, we again stuck our foot in the mud and cut off our noses to spite our faces.

I don't care what party you belong to, what your race is, if you are union or not, this is not working in this once great state.

Don't you want a job? Don't you want to be able to live without being taxed or nanny law-ed to death? Don't you want to live in a state where the majority of the people are legal and speak English? Don't you want to live where the schools and government is not broken and bankrupt? Are you happy being taxed to death? It used to be that California once lead the way for other states, now they look at California and say if we do it and this is the shape we are in.....don't do it because it will not work. 25% of people out of work, our property values have cratered, illegals by the millions (over 1 million in LA alone) budget deficits, highest taxes and more on the way and the people rejoice.
It reminds me of the story of the piped piper leading all the rats to the ocean to drown...happy and gleeful we go forward to our fate.

I am actively planning to leave CA. With the Democrats in control they will tax us to death to subdue the public employee unions and illegal aliens. These are their constituents, not hardworking, law abiding CA citizens who are not on the dole.

This is very serious. They will work to overturn Prop 13 and I will no longer be able to stay.

But I say good riddance. CA does not appreciate me and only cow tows to illegals and union workers. All they want to do is tax the private sector. Let them and watch CA become a ghetto everywhere. It is what dumb CA deserve. More crime, more taxes, less civility...let them have it. They deserve it.

I just want to add...the CA legislature is going to turn me, and other law abiding private sector people, into their own ATM machines to pay off unions workers, give them raises and higher pensions.

I won't allow them to do this to me. I am so sick of the unions taking taking taking while the private sector is suffering so much. Greedy union people...you won't be able to tax me. I will leave.

I will leave to a state that RESPECTS private sector people and appreciates law abiding citizens who ADD and not take. I refuse to become a slave to unions and illegals. I refuse.

Don't confuse them with the facts. Democrats/liberals/progressive s/socialists don't like the facts. The former wonderful Golden State is rapidly being destroyed. It makes me sick.

Illegals?

I thought for sure it was SEIU purple shirts that were the skapegoat this season.

But I guess fantasy sells well.

The precinct I worked had somewhere between 40 and 50 percent turnout, depending on how many absentee ballots were actually turned it. While that is much better than usual (less than a thrid showed up for the primary), it is still an F.

Next time, try to get more of your friends to show up.

Head to the Deep South. We just went conservative in a big way. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. We let the rest of the US think what they want but look at the numbers. Shhh, don't tell anyone. We are particular about who we accept. Illegals need not apply.

California? LOL. Look around you, graffiti is everwhere, it is a dump in about 75% of it. that's why the few good areas are extrememly expensive still. The underclass is brainwashed by the liberal teachers, they deserve each other and they deserve what is coming. What is coming is just more of the same. A downhill slide to worse neighborhoods and more welfare, more food stamps, people who need a helping hand because they dropped out of school. I think it is funn. There are many nicer places than Ca. now and there will be even more in the future.

Now how will the Dims get the $18 fee for the parks? Watch Jerry go, he will screw all of those that can give more $ from their wallets.

California used to be #1 in schools,economy,roads etc!! After 30+years of Democrat ruled legislator in sac,senators and House reps, what are we now? I find it absolutely disgusting that this once great state has fallen so far. Thank you progressives! As far as fraud with illegals voting, Well, if they can get a FAKE SSN,drivers lic.,etc. they probably vote. No ID required at polls is INSANE!
