    Naw. Missed it, but I'm not surprised. Considering what you folks have done to my fair state, I've come to expect it.

    The point is the Progressive meme about Prop 13 has been evicerated so many times, it's surprising how willing some are to float that boat again.

    No it hasn't. Ask pretty much an economist and they will tell you that much of California's financial woes were caused by prop 13. Like I said, there are some parts of prop 13 that were necessary, such as capping to keep older folk from losing their homes. But prop 13 needs to be modified to take the commercial cap out.

    What you prove with every post is that liberals are the selfish ones, whatever benefits them is what is important, not what benefits the economy. You have no understanding why unemployment is so high, the stock market is so high, why corporation profits are so high but none of that matters as long as you are ok.

    Again total ignorance, always try to justify higher spending by higher taxes, never do what people have to do in their normal life, live within their means. The state of California's fiscal problems stem from the European model where everything is covered by the state taxpayers. A novel idea would be to actually cut spending, generate surpluses and pay off your debt but no liberals would rather sink under their own welfare weight. There isn't much difference in the entitlement mentality of Europe and the entitlement mentality of Californians and I see California going the same way as Greece

    You obviously have zero understanding of California. What "entitements" do we have in California that are unique to California. And you are aware, are you not that massive cuts have been made to programs in California. But....you probably aren't educated on those things or would simply choose to ignore it.

    30% of California's manufacturing jobs have left the state over the last 20+ years. Despite you laughable claims to the contrary, more high paying manufacturing jobs are leaving the state, and California is ranked last in terms of it's business environment.

    And you want to increase property taxes on commercial property, despite per capita property tax revenue that is greater than 35 other states?

    What, you want 1 in 4 on the state government dole, rather than the current 1 in 7?
