2012 Election Information

An Open Letter to Gov. Jerry Brown (D-CA) January 13, 2011

I hope you all enjoy this.

Gov Brown.

First things first.
1. I did not vote for you

2. What you allowed the Nurses Union to do to Meg Whitman was the the iconic show of how low a politician will go to get a vote.

OK now on to the the budget.  Read this sentence over and over again.

Gov. Jerry Brown wants to spend millions of tax payer dollars on a special vote to ask taxpayers for millions of dollars.

Let me repeat that.

Gov. Jerry Brown wants to spend millions of tax payer dollars on a special vote to ask taxpayers for millions of dollars.

That my friend is absolutely the dumbest thing I ever heard of. Especially when the taxpayers already told Sacramento NO in 2009.
The Tax and Spend Liberal Marxist Socialists in power in Sacramento now have all but destroyed the business climate in California.

I’ll save you the millions of dollars on a special election for a tax extension.  THE ANSWER IS NO TO THE TAX EXTENSION.

OK then what should you do? A lot of people always complain about what the politicians are doing wrong but never offer a solution as to what they should be doing.
Eliminating Cell Phones and getting rid of unnecessary state vehicles…….Nice bandages. But the those motions are only short term and will be over and done by the next fiscal budget expiration date.
Here are my suggestions:

1. There are going to be thousands of California State Workers that are in line to get huge golden parachutes in the form of pension payments for the rest of their lives and free or heavily subsidized health care for the retirees and their families for the rest of their lives. These entitlement programs are unsustainable as by shear statics of there not being enough taxpayers in the future to fund this future financial train wreck.
What should be done in the future?  Simple. All new Employees of the state starting July 1 will not get a pension, instead they will get a matching fund 401K just like any other company.  When a state employee not longer works for the state either by early choice or retirement, they get their 401K at the end of employment and the state owes the ex employees no more money after termination date.
So now you are saying But what about all the pensions that are intact now.  This is easy, well sort of. The state Comptroller will have to figure out a formula for what each pension is worth today for every state employee.  That is the hard part…or maybe not.
Then by let’s say January 1 2013 all employees will have their pension rolled into a 401K. Again the long term fix is elimination the legacy costs for ex state employees or retirees. This is the long term fix. Not a bandaid like cell phones or state vehicles.

2. SEIU cannot hold a gun to the State Government for future entitlement programs. The same solution above applies to all State Union Workers.

The problem with Government entitlement programs is that it give a false sense of hope to the employees by eliminating the responsibility for the employee to be responsible and save for their own future retirement.
In addition to a Government matching 401K the government should also promote that the employees contribute to a personal IRA in addition to the 401K. No they cannot take the IRA contributions as a tax deduction as long as they are contributing to a 401K, But in the end they will have a comfortable savings so they they will not have to depend on tax payer dollars for the rest of their lives to live on.
The same condition with baby boomers will also apply to Social Security and Medicare. There simply will not be enough people to subsidize those entitlement programs in future years with payroll taxes.
Keep in mind when FDR came up with the entitlement program of Social Security People were only living to maybe 65 or 70. So FDR was betting that after a life time of contributions to Social Security an individual would not live long enough to drain the Social Security System. Social Security turned into a Huge Ponzi Scheme that now when people want to get paid for their investments there will not be the money there to pay back the people that are part of it when they live to 80 or 90 years old.

3. Illegal immigrants.  I know the unions and illegal immigrants voted you in.  What do you think that not one illegal immigrant voted for you?  LOL they either did with false documents or highly influence legal voters to vote for you. The State of California has to stop funding people that enter this country from all over the world illegally.
The state of California has to discourage more people from entering the US Illegally. The State of California can no longer be safe harbor for people that disregard the laws of the United States.  You really need to follow in the foot steps of AZ Gov. Jan Brewer.

4. Lower sales tax to 5% so people can start to spend money again on goods and service. More jobs will be created in the PRIVATE SECTOR.

5. Lower Corporate taxes by at least 20% to entice companies to expand or even start in California to create jobs.

6. Lower the maximum personal income tax bracket to 6%.  Again if more people spend then more jobs will be created.

7. Here is the most important role you can play to get California financially stable again.   You have to become California’s Business Ambassador to the world. Your job it to entice companies to start or expand businesses here in California to create jobs with generous, permanent tax break incentives.

Jerry, if you want to fix the financial condition of California you have to get the unemployment rate down to 5% or less.  If you continue the bad business attitude that Sacramento has had over the years then everything you do, all the bandaids that you put on the wound will not help the wound heal.

8. Finally it is sad that the majority of people that voted you in either were not born yet or did not even live in this country during your last time wrecking the economy in the State Of California.

If you don’t do the things mentioned above then you will be as ineffective as Arnold, Gray and Pete were.  I hope you do not want that reputation to follow you.

I wish you the best in these hard decisions.

The Unpatriotic Anti American Barack Obama et al. July 7, 2010

I just don’t understand what is wrong with America. What have we become? The idea that we are allowing another nation to illegally invade the United States and supporting the invading country on top of that by granting amnesty to the people that enter this country illegally.

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer is a PATRIOT. She has championed AZ SB 1070.  This woman is an American Hero and unfortunately will be erased in history books by liberals that are Marxist Socialist Democrats.

In addition, Barack Obama will not support H.R 1868 that would prevent “Anchor Babies” from becoming US Citizens. I have been saying for years that as time goes on and more illegal immigrants enter the US, The harder it will be to stop the progress.  It seems that by the “lamestream media” supporting this invasion by not pointing out how bad the situation is, is just making it even worse.  All politicians know that Hispanics have the capability to controlling this country now. That is a fact. OTM’s (Other Than Mexican) have lost control of this country.  I have to make myself very clear here. I have nothing against Hispanic people as long as they are in this country legally and have gone through traditional lawful procedures to enter this country.  Ever since September 2008 I have said that Obama has an agenda that he is not letting the public know about.  He is an evil misguided person. Just think about what is happening.  Instead of being an American Patriot and defending our borders by supporting AZ SB 1070, he is seeking to destroy this law that allows a state to protect it’s sovereignty, safety to it’s citizens and economy.   It is obvious that Barack Obama has an agenda that is not in the best interest in the safety and sovereignty of the United States of America. Barack Obama and the Marxist Socialist Progressive Democrats have to be ejected from office and never, ever allowed to run for office again.

Governor Jan Brewer’s Letter to Barack Obama And Several Members of the US Congress. 5/21/2010 May 21, 2010

I am so impressed with this woman.

Now this is transparency to not only the citizens of Arizona but also to the Citizens and Legal immigrants in the United States.

So Far no one has a plan except her for the border. I admire her most because she puts the safety and sovereignty of this nation before a vote.

Here is a letter that she sent to Barack Obama and several members of the Congress of the United States.

Please read this letter.

Governor Jan Brewer’s Letter to Barack Obama And Several Members of the US Congress

If this letter is not taken seriously by Barack Obama and Congress then it is very obvious that this administration doesn’t give a Rat’s Ass about this Country and is more concerned with their jobs and getting re-elected by bribing as many people possible.
