    It's a thinly veiled attempt to drum up expected Dem voters. Nothing more.

    You don't reward illegals by making their children citizens.

    Look at what your side has done to the State of California. Your side should be ashamed for profiting on the misery of the middle class and poor.

    Actually it is YOUR SIDE with its neafarious Prop 13 that has castrated the idea of majority rule in your state and has introduced the tyranny of the minority.

    Not true. You sound like a broken record. Nobody believes you.

    Not even extreme leftists are suggesting that Prop. 13 be changed. It's not on the radar. Public sector union defined benefit pension plans are in the news out here, not Prop. 13.

    Just because you cannot handle the truth does not mean others are of the like mind. And next time you spout off about nobody trying to change Prop 13 you should do your homework first.

    Repeal Prop 13 Organization

    this is but one of many such efforts. But that is hardly the point.

    this from the Wikipedia article

    Estimates are that Proposition 13 has saved California taxpaying citizens over $528 billion (value retrieved 5/31/2009)
    I wonder what financial condition the State of California would now be in with an additional $528 billion dollars if Prop 13 did not exist?

    Why do you hate the basic American concept of Majority Rule so much that you support the tyranny of the minority?

    Hey that's really impressive research from a self-styled academic. Any one who raises this subject dies a figurative political death. Case closed. Now Jerry Brown has to fix this state or lose his head. This should be fun.

    Nobody ever wakes up and says "today I would like my arm cut off at the elbow". But people do get that done each day and are thankful for it when it means saving the rest of the body.

    That day will come and folks like you are setting the stage for it. Of course, you believe you have been setting the stage for something else altogether different. But in the end the masses will simply be too much for you no matter what ideology or think tanks tell you.

    No one is going to rise up. There is going to be a new dark age. That's the trajectory we're on now, and no one seems able to do anything about it.
