Out of the Blue

That was a pretty great game, especially for a Super Bowl, and congrats to the Steelers. I guess six rings goes the old "one for the thumb" line one better, as now they have one for the other hand. From one odd holiday to another, today is Groundhog Day, and according to Groundhog .org, Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, leading to six more weeks of winter in this area. I will say I sort of smell a rat in this whole groundhog deal, as the photos here suggest that in order to be timely with this prognostication, they did their checking on this before sunrise, as all the pictures look like they are shot in complete darkness. Perhaps he was just seeing his shadow from the flash of cameras?

Let's try a modified, but still true version:

"Our idiot republicans legislators in CA refuse to stop blocking the passage of the budget, so here we go."

The republicans are demanding a budget that has structural fixes in it that would prevent this state from digging itself further into the mess we are in. It is an entirely reasonable demand. The problem is spending, not income. And I have seen no effort by the left to try to remove the current spuermajority voting requirement. The proposed budget fixed none of the problems and just increased taxes, so year after year we would keep getting deeper in debt. I want it fixed and not just passed on to next year. The majority of the legislature (but not quite a supermajority) is democratic; it is up to them to be able to fashion a budget that will pass a vote. The governor has tried to walk down the middle, but the left has been unwilling to listen to the voice of responsibility coming from the right on this issue. Well, now it is coming back to bite us in the ass.
