Governor Jerry Brown - how'd he doing in CA?

Ever since Arnold stepped down, Gov Jerry Brown has had a lot of work to do in the most populous state in the United States. How do people living there feel he is doing so far?

Found a few recent tidbits about him, people can read and respond

http://laist.com/2011/07/25/californ...d_into_law.php

Seems Jerry signed the DREAM Act into law. Doesn't take place until next year, but it essentially allows people, illegal aliens, to receive funding for school.

"AB130 will partly open doors once closed to bright and talented immigrant students who are undocumented. Together, AB130 and AB131 will facilitate, not guarantee, access to limited funding opportunities for worthy students entering or finishing college. The California DREAM Act does not change a personís immigration status."

So the law helps law breakers? How come the ACLU isn't questioning the constitutional legality of something like this as well?

Here's another bill, but Jerry vetoed this one

http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/articl...F01KE1 VF.DTL

Jerry Brown vetoes bill to help elderly, disabled

"Brown vetoed a bill Monday that would have offered an alternative to Adult Day Health Care, which was eliminated under the budget signed last month. Now, funding for the approximately 300 existing centers that offer 37,000 adults medical care, physical therapy, exercise, counseling, socialization and other support will be cut off on Dec. 1.

"Providers, patients and families are scared and angry, and they feel abandoned and marginalized," said Lydia Missaelides, executive director of the California Association for Adult Day Services, who noted that the community-based model that defines Adult Day Health Care is exactly what the federal health care reform envisions."

Now, there could be language in that 2nd bill that makes it in need of some changes, but it certainly will not sit well with numerous people when the first bill I linked did get passed. Many will read that as "Illegal aliens > American citizens" and I can see exactly where they are coming from. So can Gov Brown too I bet.

Is he making any progress in California so far? It's been a while since he was last the Governor in CA.

If true, it's amazing that it isn't in there without legislation. No matter where you stand on the issue, it is a significant enough political movement to warrant mention in history texts. It's ridiculous think it's okay to not mention the history of something of this magnitude simply because one doesn't agree with it.

For example, we don't try to keep slavery out of textbooks even though just about everyone disagrees with it. Oh wait, conservatives do try.

Ignorance-based education will be a disaster for the nation.

"This Magnitude"

lol? What magnitude? I guess I missed the part where gays have been fighting to share the drinking fountain with the straight folk and refusing to sit at the back of the bus.

So do liberals like yourself

"It's not just historians who contest history, however. It's also politicians and pundits.

The left has done it."

Way to fail on your own link. Not to mention how the link essentially argues with itself on some of the points, such as how Russian spies were found in America, giving strength to McCarthy that such actions that liberals claim didn't happen, did indeed. Glenn Beck's disapproval with Theodore Roosevelt doesn't speak for everyone. Rofl - Glenn Beck. The slavery part you admittedly lied on.

Haha, you're horrible.

Haha. I have no problem with gay history being taught. But it's mostly rent-seeking by book publishing companies. Isn't it great? Now, in just one state, companies must create ENTIRELY NEW HISTORY BOOKS which will be bought at ridiculous prices (especially considering how only California is instituting the change).

Isn't it great to put money into the pockets of government-enabled companies?

Not directly related to the CA governor Jerry Brown, he has had help in this decline, but business is not looking for LA.

"The Slow Decline Of Los Angeles"

http://blogs.the-american-interest.c...f-los-angeles/

snippet:

Quote:
The indispensable Joel Kotkin has a great essay over at New Geography on how Los Angeles lost its mojo. Why? According to Kotkin,
A big reason is a decline in the power and mettle of the city’s once-vibrant business community. Between the late 1980s and the end of the millennium, many of L.A.’s largest and most influential firms…disappeared in a host of mergers that saw their management shift to cities like London, New York and San Francisco.
To make matters worse,
Business-strangling regulations proliferate, often with support from a powerful and well-heeled environmental movement, which Mr. Villaraigosa counts on for political support and media validation. There are draconian moves to control emissions at the port from ships and trucks.

Hope some punk band writes another song about him. I liked California Uber Alles. Too bad the Dead Kennedys no longer have Jello Biafra....
