Gov. Gray Davis cannot seem to get anything right, and this state is quickly fading into oblivion. The state is over $35 billion in debt, and the Governor has no idea what to do about it.
He allowed the state to overpay for power, during the power shortages, when he knew there was no need to, as the increase in the pricing was illegal, but he allowed it to happen anyway.
The Court system, which is in Chaos, more specifically the ninth circuit court, is passing ridiculous laws, such as the new "legal illegal immigrant" ruling, which will allow illegal aliens in CA to obtain identification cards, with which they can open bank accounts in CA, and obtain a CA drivers license.
I have no problem with immigration, as long as it is done legally. I have a problem with the taxpayers of the US footing the bill for the massive illegal immigration in the US. Over 500,000 people a year cross the border illegally in this country and end up staying. Recent statistics are showing that of the ones that are caught, upwards of 25% have criminal records in their former country, and 20% have also committed crimes in this country. I say, if you are here illegally and you commit a crime, you should be deported immediatly with no hearing. After all, you have already broken the law twice.
