Never mind the budget, Gavin's worried about himself


So this afternoon, the governor released a truly horrifying mid-year budget revise, a bloody proposal that would eliminate CALWORKS, the state's major welfare program, and cut billions out of other essential services. Calitics puts it nicely:

At today's press conference unveiling the May Revise of the 2010-11 budget, Arnold Schwarzenegger said "the budget should be a reflection of California's values." If that's the case, then California's values are protecting the wealthy and the large corporations from having to contribute anything to this society while making old people and children suffer. Arnold's California is a place where if you aren't wealthy, you don't deserve to have health, food, or any other form of economic security.

And about an hour later, the mayor of San Francisco sends a text to Assemblymember Tom Ammiano, who represents the city. Was he asking for Ammiano's help in fighting the budget cuts? Was he suggesting they work together on strategy to save the city's most needy from the governor's axe? No. Here's what the text from Newsom, who is running for Lt. Governor, said:

I hear you voted for Hahn at the convention.

That's right -- a month after the state Democratic Convention, Newsom is complaining that Ammiano voted for his opponent in the endorsement derby. That's what he cares about? More than the worse budget in state history?

Ammiano's response:

And what???

Good question.




I earned the Getty Oil Company shareholders 4 Billion Bucks
On the Reserve acquisition; the way they treat me -- it really sucks!
As the Getty inheritors bask in glee;
All I asked for was that they look after me.
Four billion dollars they earned on Reserve
My fee I surely deserve.
It turns out J.P. Getty may have been a Nazi;
His family even goes back to Germany.
With Hitler, Goring & Goebbels he did stand;
While trying to undermine the American land!
For paintings & artifacts he did receive
With his oil he was able to deceive!
Hoover & the FBI & Roosevelt they knew
That J.P. Getty & espionage he drew!
Many a young lad and Jew did die
As planes dropped bombs from the sky.
For years while Getty sat in Berlin
He may have committed many a sin.
The ashes and smoke from the chimneys it rose
While old man Getty sat cozy; he chose.
With artwork held tightly under his arm
Still dripping in blood -- as the real owner met harm.
Into the ovens & on meat-hooks, bullets between the eyes
Listen very carefully you can still hear their cries!
While the Gettys sit in England; at their estate at Wormsley
And Gordon sings in San Francisco
With his 727 in tow.
The Getty museum sits atop Malibu
While the corpses of World War 2 scream -- J.P. Getty -- We know you!
