More “New Civility?”

go git ‘em, elected representative of The People

Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg told reporters he has considered an idea floated by state Treasurer Bill Lockyer to cut funding in districts represented by Republicans … if GOP lawmakers keep refusing to let Californians vote on tax extensions.

…Lockyer told the editorial board of the Bay Area News Group this week that if Republicans are demanding less government, their districts should get limited services.

Thaaat’s the way!

    Go ahead. Pull that trigger. The sooner people are forced into the uncomfortable realization that their government is at war with them, the better for all of us.

    I think that’s the idea isn’t it ? So when the Republicans get less from the government and succeed on their own and the democrats are standing with their hands out who will they be getting their services from? Anyone who applies for welfare and government services must be Democrats— now that’s something to think about on many levels—

    This would certainly clarify the whole “buying votes” equation for a lot of people.

    Aaaaand less taxation to go along with that, to be consistent;
    and less regulation,
    and less social engineering,
    and less social justice,
    and fewer high-speed trains,
    and fewer pyramids,
    and fewer illegals at the teat,
    and less union/party-protected incompetence,
    and less corruption, graft, and bribery,
    and less do-good, nanny meddling,
    and less mandatory Gaia-worship,
    and less SanFrisking us in the ass,
    and …
    Oh, wait … [scribble scribble scribble]
    Here’s our declaration of secession.

    Okeyfine! Since most districts not situated on the coastline of Kali are *Red* districts (…but w way less population…), they could charge a *Fee* for any coastal registered RATz to pass thru their districts.

    Say, $10 bucks to cross each Red District [...$25 bucks for cars with Obama stickers and/or Priuses...]

    And—–Thanx for less government, Mr. Lockyer, you looney, limpdick, lothario, leech, lump of late-birth lizard— I LOL you!

    Well, duh. If you can’t use the power of government vindictively against your political opponents, what’s the point of getting into it in the first place? What’s the point in clawing your way to the top of the CA legislature if you don’t crush your enemies?

    I’m serious. The sorry fuckers will regret not voting for me! Oh yes, they will!

    This is the same Lockyer that threatened to see that a power executive was raped in prison.

    That sick son-of-a-bitch should have been stripped of title and banned from public office forever back in 2001 when he did that.

    Are they *really* sure they want to get rid of all the rules and play this no-holds-barred?
