Myth of GOP Only Tax Protest

"...the no vote is fueled by voter anger at the enormous surge in spending in the Golden State over the past decade, and by the refusal to make serious reforms in the way the state runs. The public pension problem is also beginning to come into view, and ordinary voters are shocked at the amount of spending the public employee unions have carved out of the legislature." [link]

In the land of the left there seems to be general disgust at the way the state government is ran and the cost to the taxpayers. Start digging too deeply in any one's pockets and they start turning ugly. The MSM should get their stories straight and realize that corruption and over-taxation hurts everyone and it is not just about the GOP being bitter.

Obama Drug Czar to End "War on Drugs"!

Drug Czar Gil Kerlikowske..."rejects the formulation of the “War on Drugs” and voices an inclination to treat American drug abuse as a national health challenge: In his first interview since being confirmed to head the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, Gil Kerlikowske said Wednesday the bellicose analogy was a barrier to dealing with the nation’s drug issues.

“Regardless of how you try to explain to people it’s a ‘war on drugs’ or a ‘war on a product,’ people see a war as a war on them. We’re not at war with people in this country.” [link]

Oh, I see now! We are just going to change what we call it, but continue on with the same strategy that has cost billions of dollars, loss of life, and has led to the drug abuse epidemic growing at an exponential rate.

Remember a few posts back about how the left loves to use wording, verbage, and political correctness to try and win support without actually changing anything of substance?
