I'm featured in L.A. CityBeat!

Check it out.

And while you're at it, check out the Ron Shepston campaign.

My resolutions are up on the CDP website

First, there's the resolution I wrote opposing subsidies for coal liquefaction...

And, there's the gutted resolution about Alberto Gonzales (actually a sausage-resolution boiled down from separate resolutions authored by me and by Peter Rudinskas).

Senator Denham (R-Merced) attacks himself on budget obstruction

So, Republican CA State Senator Jeff Denham (R-Merced) proposed an amendment to pay state vendors during the budget crisis. And then, in a gut-churning, rage-inducing display of shameless self-promotion, he put out a TV ad about his amendment:

(Notice how comments became disabled on the video?)

Now, honestly here--if you didn't come to Sacramento to allow politicians to hold schools hostage, then why are you and your fellow Senate Republicans refusing to vote for the budget unless we gut CEQA, which isn't even a budget-related issue? Especially when our Governor, who is also a member of your party, has promised further cuts to satisfy your extremist agenda? If you don't like politicians holding schools hostage, then vote for the damn budget that the Assembly already made deep compromises on.

Bob Brigham did us the favor of posting a price cut-and-splice job in response, and to let everyone know about Dump Denham:

The extremist Republicans in our state never cease to amaze.
