Held hostage in CA

I am a firm believer in the GIGO principle (You know, garbage in, garbage out) and watching a lot of violent movies tends to result in violent or angry behavior. Starring in very violent movies probably has an even greater impact on a person's demeanor and actions. For example, consider the actor playing in the lead role of California's governor. He has decided to hold over 200,000 people hostage. He is doing this by cutting the wages of all state employees to the federal minimum wage of $6.55 per hour until the state legislature passes a balanced budget. His tactic may prove effective as the members of the legislature are becoming more open to compromise. However, I do not believe that he did this to actually achieve a balanced budget. I think that after wielding computer enhanced super-human strength for so many years, Arnold Schwarzenegger was starting to feel out of place as just a normal run of the mill politician. I think he just needed to get a fix of politically enhanced super human strength and did so at the expense of the citizens of California.

I love your blog! Are you sure you want to live in the great state of California? What with tumbling real estate values, forest fires close by and Arnold threatening you. Let's pray that the earth will continue to be stilled in Central Valley! If anyone can make the most out of it you can Mim! As a matter of fact California is privileged and blessed to to have you! I know you make it a better place. Thanks for your blog. Especially with the drought felt by the absence of Laura and Marie's writing. This was fun. Keep on writing!

You make me laugh so hard! Arnold is a state employee himself. Shouldn't he be earning minimum wage?
