3200 is simply a good start

the overstaffed overpaid gov employees and mostly worthless.

first one let go should be John Sanchez for running for ANOTHER job when he hasn't been on the one he was ELECTED to for six months!

you want to tell me he WILL NOT be using STATE funds to campaign with?
Travel etc?

Why does everyone think gary johnson is so honest it is simply not true.He was using his own contracting companies to bilk the state with those private prisons they subsidized.Didnt he hire his wife also.Private prisons just makes no sense what so ever.

Let me see if I understand this. High unemployment rates mean a stalled economy, more home foreclosures and general misery. But if the jobs people are losing are GOVERNMENT jobs, then an increase in unemployment is good?

Some days, a person can't help but think they've fallen down a rabbit hole....
