Sunday Re-Education Camp

 Did the Koch Brothers create the astroturf Tea Party?

-Film director James Cameron of "Titanic" and "Avatar" fame pledges $1 million to fight the Koch Bros/Valero Oil backed Prop 23.  Support for Prop 23 is in a freefall with a recent Field Poll showing 45% opposition to the ill conceived measure with only 34% support. Last week, the "Yes On 23" campaign went dark, with no television ads statewide as financial resources continue to dry up.

-Jerry Brown picks up yet another endorsement. This one from The Daily News;

"The next governor of California will inherit a state mired in debt, with a budget already billions of dollars in the red, public infrastructure literally crumbling, a poisonous business climate, schools the shame of the nation and a populace tired of the finger-pointing and lack of leadership from Sacramento. 

That's why Californians must use cold calculation and not gut feeling when they vote for the state's top leader in the Nov. 2 election. The foremost criteria must be which of the top two candidates can work within the dysfunction of Sacramento to set the state back on the path of solvency and growth - and do so quickly. Under that criteria, the only choice is Jerry Brown."-Daily News

-With just a bit over two weeks until election day, the pace of the name-calling gets fast and furious; Senator John McCain describes Barbara Boxer as "bitterly partisan and anti-defense". Meanwhile, Megan McCain calls Christine O'Donnell "A Nutjob".

-Senate hopeful Carly Fiorina shows off her empty suit on Fox News Sunday.
-Gov Jan Brewer of Arizona just can't get a break. Last week, she lost an effort to halt lawsuits filed by civil rights groups challenging the constitutionality of SB1070.

The reason used by the Daily News in endorsing Brown is an important one.

It's not enough to agree with the reform ideas of Whitman because you need to believe that she can get them implemented through the state legislature. And that, we have all learned, was a killing field for Arnold's plans.

As a CEO she's used to essentially being a dictator. That's not the environment in government.

The anti 23 "Luddites" Speak....green jobs, green jobs, green jobs. MORONS, there are not enough "green jobs" to sustain ANY job growth in the state. All you will accomplish is a destroyed economy with $10 dollar a gallon gas, and utility costs through the roof. I know all about your agenda of "Forcing" people out of their cars and on to buses and trains.....wont work because there is NO EFFECTIVE mass transit in LA you fools!!!

Americans for Prosperity is the largest Tea Party group and they are definitely a Koch creation.
