Updates

Apologize for the lack of updates. Time has been short lately.

Some developments. The first looks like the services tax will get the ax. That's good, but there will be some replacement and it won't be cuts or structural reforms. This is unacceptable and it looks like we will have a bullshit gimmick budget once again. That means we'll be dealing with this next year and the year after that unless there's some real leadership. Given the history of our Matt Millen of governors, it will probably have to come from a Headlee type through a ballot initiative.

Medical Marijuana may come up for a vote on the ballot. Tom Petty's "You don't know it feels" is now running through my head. On a serious note, I don't have any problem with this. The perscription drugs lobby probably won't care for this very much.

The polls are shifting on the 2008 races. I'm still as undecided as ever.

Also, the Second Amendment will be a big issue in 2008, even more than usual. The Supreme Court is going to hear the Parker v DC case regarding the gun ban there. I'll post more on that in depth later.

Lastly, Happy Thanksgiving and Go Lions!
