california confusion

Saturday, October 27th, 2007

hasta la vista arnie. you can bet he’s not going to be appointed to any position within a republican administration if the republicans take the white house. after vetoing a bill which would change the definition of what a ‘man’ and a ‘woman’ is in school textbooks one year ago, after being re-elected, arnold decided to sign a bill, which looks exactly the same. quite a few conservatives have their panties in a bunch. and a few prominent organizations are calling for parents to pull their kids out of the public school system. could happen. home schooling is legal in california. california already has some of the worst schools in the country. if a whole swath of orange county yanks their kids out, the school system will no longer have to do battle with louisiana and mississippi for the’worst schools in america’ spot. after all the conservatives pull their kids out of schools, they will then decide to always vote against any bill begging for more money for repairing public schools, getting new textbooks, getting new equipment. and so forth. other people believe the 3 (or was it 4) similar bills which schwarzenegger has signed are so loosely written that california schools are left wide open for lawsuits.

the hillary machine in full gear?

Sunday, October 14th, 2007

seems that someone has been trying to closedown focus on the family for suposedly endorsing political candidates in the u.s. during the 2004 election. this seems to happen to one big organization every few years.

i kinda prefer german elections. money comes from one pot. everybody has to share. everyone gets equal t.v. time. there’s something to be said for the french way as well regarding the media. there’s a total media blackout regarding anything associated with an election 24 (or is that 48) hours before the election takes place.
