Editorial: If Prop. 30 fails, future of public education in California is bleak
The future of public education in California will be decided Tuesday. Gov. Jerry Brown has structured Proposition 30 so that most of its $6 billion or so in new tax revenue goes to schools, community colleges and universities.

Democrat Lt Gov Newsome accuses Democratic Gov Jerry Brown of LYING to sell Prop 30 on radio interview with KOA.
Democratic politicians lying to majority Calif Democratic supporters to trick them into screwing THEMSELVES out of $40 Billion dollars in increased taxes.
Stay tuned. If Calif could be more pathetic the State Democratic Party will find a way.

Prop 30 is a non starter, since State and local entities i Cal have gone to the well way too many times.. Californians have been more than generous in supporting tax increments of variou stripes (sales tax, bonds, measures, assessments, or whatever name they cleverly invent) for educational institutions. This has been the case since 1950. Funds are always squandered, as in the most recent case of the LA Commnity Colleges almost billion dollar constructions fiasco.
Also tired of this routine chicanery of this all being about the "kids". They will survive, if they have the fortitude, but granted it will not be easy. The only raise in taxes worth supporting would be for ultra luxury goods and the top 3% of the wealthy in our State.
Vote No on 30!

Also, keep the Death Penalty in Cal, so vote No on the devious propositon which would abolish it. They claim that the State can no longer afford the Death Penalty, which is a bogus arguement. All the infrastructure is already in place, as in San Quentin Prison, Correctional Officers, Appellate Courts and even a full staff of Attorneys.

Since the revolution, Big Government political bosses have transferred ever more hard earned taxpayer money collected from the minority of Americans who pay taxes to the Africans. Much of this forced distribution money has been shoveled down the bottomless $$$ Big School $$$ rat hole and into the pockets of rich Big Teacher Government agents, ostensibly for the purpose of "educating" African "youth". Since Obama was reelected, and "the voting majority" of Californians who do not pay taxes passed Proposition 30, children who have both the motivation and the intellectual capacity to learn have been asking me how is this unholy scheme working out? I always refer the children to a link of an article that depicts typical results.

Whew! 30 passing was huge. Once Brown said that he would take all budget shortfalls out of our Schools rather than stand up to the Unions as most other Governors are doing around the Nation we had no choice but to accept the multi billion dollar tax increase. In '14 the citizens will have to bear another $50 Billion minimum tax increase just to temporarily cover the thousands of multi million dollar pensions the Sac pols traded for Union campaign support over the last 14 years.
