Uh huh...how funny, the Repugnicans are subverting the will of the people in Florida, Texas, and now California. Very funny.

Good job, traitors:
the system of government wherein a council of judges decides the ruling individuals = Monarchy.

'Traitor' is a bit harsh, don't you think? 'Anti-Ame4rican scum' works, though.

Shadow, what the heck are you talking about? Nowhere in that article does it say anything about Davis cheating to get elected. If you have another source, could you post a link?

Attempt, eh? You don't think with all the problems in CA, it will succeed? I'd bet money that it will.
Repugnicans are subverting the will of the people in... California.
How could something that is provided for by law be a subversion of the will of the people? Its a direct action by the people based on the AWFUL job Davis has done.

Um... ok.

Now I'm just not sure you guys understand what a recall vote is and what it is for.
Presidential candidate?
Sorry. I got my list of candidates messed up.
 

GENIERE

Davis is paying the price for his inept administration. Part of his demise is from the reliance of California on a progressive state income tax. This liberal Democrat tax to promote and fund liberal policies failed to generate sufficient income after the well-paid jobs in Silicon Valley dried up. Yeah! Tax the higher income earners until there’s none left to tax. Tax the industry until there’s none left to tax. Regulate the utilities until there’s none left to regulate. Rely on out of state power generation and complain they charge too much. Why let electrical utilities build in California and harm the habitat of a sub, sub, sub, sub species of fish. Irrigate LA and SF and dry up those pesky environmental unfriendly farms, orchards, and ranches. Mexico and the SW states don’t need water do they! Let the dead trees rot on the ground and release CO2 for 10 years instead of building homes.

This self-inflicted liberal blight would be funny were it not a giant albatross for the rest of us.

Forgot my nominees for California Governor.

Kemp
Riordan
Schwarzenegger
Issa

Sorry, I can’t think of any qualified Democrats (oxymoron?).

So it's Davis's fault that the economy hit the crapper? Should he instead taxed the hell out of poor people? Do you really think that a flat tax would have made any noticeable difference?

Hmm, I can't really say anything here. I don't know enough about the situation and how Davis was involved.

If you think that that is the worst environmental problem that exists, then you are sadly, sadly mistaken. What about the smog in Los Angeles. There are also entire ecosystems being torn apart, not just a "sub sub sub sub" species of fish.

Irrigate LA and SF and dry up those pesky environmental unfriendly farms, orchards, and ranches. Mexico and the SW states don’t need water do they!
Is it Davis's fault that an incredible number of people live in a very arid area? Do you really think that Davis is responsible for all the irrigation in California? Irrigation goes back many decades, and no governor has implemented sustainable methods.

Partially, yes. He had a lot to do with the electric power deregulation debacle, didn't he? And hey, welcome to democracy: regardless of what you do, you get the credit or blame for what goes on when you happen to be in the room.

Yes but Davis is the governor so the irrigation does go by him and when there are problems like this he should do something about it.

California is over-run with people, they need to start controlling this. With all the power outages last year and getting power from all over the US, I think they need to clean up their act! I agree with Geniere, Mexico doesn't have all that much money, and even if some people do, the farmers certainly dont.

Well, Clinton was an exception.


Seriously, if this is all the democratic "party" has to offer, then they're going to get completely killed in 2004. Bush could have an affair like Clinton's and he'd get a landslide victory.

Just goes to show how incompetent the left front is.

????

What 'left' are you talking about? The Dems are the moderate party, with Clinton as a perfect centrist example.

Larry Flint is running for govenor

at least he is not a crook. unlike most of the others
 

damgo

Davis sucks, bigtime, but he was just re-elected -- what, 7 months ago? 8 months? And the recall campaign started months and months ago.

I'm all for will of the people prevailing and all, but it's pretty screwed-up to try and recall someone a couple months after they're elected. This is too much just like shouting "do-over!" cause you didn't like the results the first time.

I can see recalling a politician if they flagrantly violate the will of the people, or are involved in some scandal.... but Davis hasn't done anything since he got re-elected. He hasn't had a chance to.

---

The recall promises to be massively entertaining though.... so far we have as announced or likely candidates:

1) Darrell Issa, a reformed car thief who's been arrested for (among other things) illegally carrying a loaded semiautomatic pistol in his glovebox.

2) Arnold "I will terminate zeez budget deficits" Schwarzenegger. Nuff said.

3) The frontman for the punk band TSOL, which had a single "Abolish Government."

4) Larry Flint.

5) Columnist Arianna Huffigton, who used to be an outspoken conservative but turned liberal in the past couple years -- she was behind those "buying SUVs supports the terrorists" ads.

6) Arianna's ex-husband Michael, a former Republican Congressman. Oh yeah, they divorced when he came out of the closet. He's still a staunch Republican, though.

Only in California... :D

Damgo, I agree with you - my interest here is about 90% for the entertainment value. I think the recall vote actually exposes a flaw in the State Constitution.

Gee whiz, russ, have you looked at his platform? "Gov'ner" Flynt is for legalizing gambling, prostitution, and using proceeds from the taxes to balance the CA state budget! Will that be great? Who knows, but it Shows ya something: there are a lot of rich guys in this country, a lot of wierd rich guys, and so if politics is reduced to pure capitalism, Businessmen will rule, whose code is the law of the jungle.
least, that's how I sees it.

I didn't comment on Larry Flynt.

I guess it's "Hasta la vista, baby" and good-bye Davis!
 

schwarzchildradius

ahh, guess I thought you might have an opinion on that particular subject!

governor Ahnold eh? That's just desperate. I seem to recall that the gubernatorial recall law was some sort of product of the trust-busting endeavors of Teddy Roosevelt. And the fact that one is not required to even be born in this country (as is reqr'd for presidency) shows the anachronistic state of CA law. Do you (californians) really want a foreigner running your affairs? Arianna reminds me of Amelda Marcos. The independantly wealthy businessman (R) who began this whole loony-tunes show paid people up to a dollar per signature to sign the petition to recall Gov Davis, so I hear, from NPR, whatever that tells ya.
