Gindy's California Election Picks 2006
Here are my picks for the Califoria Novermber 7, 2006 General Election. If my calculations are correct, the elites in this state are trying to extract another $47,800,000,000 from your family on top of the $100,000,000,000 that you are already paying this year. That is another 50%. Think about it.
Governor: Scharzenegger over Angelides. Arnold is average at best, but Angelides would be worse than Davis. Remember Davis?
Lieutenant Governor: McClintock. He is Great.
Atorney General: Poochigian.
CA Senator: I am not a fan of Feinstein. But, I don't know anything about Mountjoy.
30th District Rep: Jones. Only because I am not a fan of Waxman.
1A TRANSPORTATION FUNDING PROTECTION. LEGISLATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. Yes.
1B HIGHWAY SAFETY, TRAFFIC REDUCTION,
AIR QUALITY, AND PORT SECURITY BOND ACT OF 2006. No. This is a $19.92 billion.....that is billion with a "b" proposal. The money for this should come from the general fund which is all too often being used for nonsense and lobbyist payouts. But man, does our infrastructure need help. We are being buried in poor quality roads and traffic. Reminder, we have about a $100 billion budget. Where does all of that money go.
1C HOUSING AND EMERGENCY SHELTER TRUST FUND ACT OF 2006. Another $2.9 billion. No way. Add up all of these propositions and see how much they are trying to extract from you and your family. This is in addition to the regular budget.
1D KINDERGARTENÂUNIVERSITY PUBLIC EDUCATION FACILITIES BOND ACT OF 2006. Another $10.6 billion (again with a "b"). Where is this money coming from? Are you paying taxes of any kind? If yes, then you should be concerned. Every year they try to get more from you for these same causes. One more time, what are they doing with the general fund money.
1E DISASTER PREPAREDNESS AND FLOOD PREVENTION BOND ACT OF 2006. $4.6 billion I will say yes to this. In the next earthquake we may appreciate this given Louisana's latest example.
83 SEX OFFENDERS. SEXUALLY VIOLENT PREDATORS. PUNISHMENT, RESIDENCE RESTRICTIONS AND MONITORING. INITIATIVE STATUTE. Yes.
84 WATER QUALITY, SAFETY AND SUPPLY.
FLOOD CONTROL. NATURAL RESOURCE PROTECTION. PARK IMPROVEMENTS. BONDS. INITIATIVE STATUTE. No. Another $5.38 billion. What is the general fund for.
85 WAITING PERIOD AND PARENTAL NOTIFICATION BEFORE TERMINATION OF MINORÂS PREGNANCY. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. Yes. This makes perfect sense to me. Your daughter can't visit the dentist without your permission but they can get an abortion? Think about that.
86 TAX ON CIGARETTES. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT AND STATUTE. Absolutely not. Leave these people alone. Look at them. Tax, Tax Tax. All of these propositions require tax money.
87 ALTERNATIVE ENERGY. RESEARCH, PRODUCTION, INCENTIVES. TAX ON CALIFORNIA OIL PRODUCERS. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT AND STATUTE. No. This is a horrible idea. Horrible. It is a $4 billion tax on gas basically. It will hit the poorest the hardest. Tax, Tax, Tax, Tax, Tax. Don't you get tired of it?
88 EDUCATION FUNDING. REAL PROPERTY PARCEL TAX. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT AND STATUTE. No. Another $450 million tax that you would be paying. They ask for more money every year. What is general fund money used for? Seriously.
89 POLITICAL CAMPAIGNS. PUBLIC FINANCING. CORPORATE TAX INCREASE. CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTION AND EXPENDITURE LIMITS. INITIATIVE STATUTE. Absolutely not. This is Un-American as far as I am concerned.
90 GOVERNMENT ACQUISITION, REGULATION OF PRIVATE PROPERTY. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. Yes. Yes. Yes. This is an Eminent Domain resistance bill which makes it harder for the government to confiscate your home or business and redistribute it to there favorite lobbyists.
