On Sweating the Small Stuff

So the latest is that the inept California politicans can't pass a budget because they can't agree on how to repay the schools later. This is dumb. You and I and them all know that no matter what plan they come up with, they still aren't going to repay the schools didly squat. Now Arnold comes out with his stupid commercials saying that we need to put pressure on the politicans to fix the budget so we don't mortgage our children's future (and slicing more money out of education is SO not doing that). Why do we even have schools anymore? They seem like a burden to the state. Its almost like a bank nowadays. When we need money, where do we go first? Children first (on the chopping block)!

Live within your means. This means no stupid per diem, car allowances and perks for politicans who can't do their job. If I don't accomplish a task at my job I have to stay here and finish it without pay because thats what my salary is for. I'm getting paid to do a job. These politicans don't give a rat's patooty about education, the elderly, the poor, the mentally ill, etc because at the end of the day, they still get their salary, their car allowance and their per diem. If we EVER want a budget on time, its time to clean house and make a new rule. If you don't get the budget on time you don't get paid. PERIOD. Do your job. Cut yourself before you take any more money out of the Bank of Children and stop whining like children while you're at it.
