Tonight we say good bye to the Olympics for another two years, and I for one have to say I really believe all in all the host Nation China, (politics aside), put on a most wonderful games, and the worlds finest athletes did themselves proud. Now beginning tomorrow we go from the ooh wow and golly of the Olympics, to the oh hell, aw www jeez of of the American Circus of Political conventions.
Here in California, we for all practical purposes are shutting the state assembly down, while all the happy donk delegates fly off to Denver to party. Never mind the state is two months late putting a budget together, and is facing a 15 Billion dollar deficit----but please don't call me biased, as the following week all the smiling Pachyderms fly off to their convention, and the assembly will be unable to function for yet another week.
The Governor, who has during his term been outspoken about NOT raising taxes, this time around is suggesting we need to add a 1% raise in the state sales tax, to raise enough revenues to make the sale of an additional 9 1/2 billion dollars of State bonds marketable----wonder what happens if the outside world gets wise and stops buying the California "paper"----????----awwwww jeez!!!
