California is Up for Grabs

$800 million child support accounting system may be on the fiscal chopping block

Jim Untershine, GZS of LB, 08-11-03

California Governor Gray Davis seems to be losing ground in his attempt to hold on to Executive power, in the wake of the anticipated recall election. A last minute attempt to allow undocumented Mexicans to hold a driver's license may not be enough to guarantee a Hispanic landslide. Davis may choose to grant illegal immigrants free car insurance to sway any Mexicans still on the fence.

To insure a backdoor victory, California Lieutenant Governor Cruz Bustamante has entered the race to allow Davis the opportunity for role reversal if worse comes to worse. The backlash of this loss of power would result in the Hispanic constituency being forced to speak and read English, while interrupting the flow of lotto winnings dispensed to Mexican visitors.

The California Governor's race has narrowed down to Bustemonte/Davis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Arianna Huffington, and Peter Ueberroth who will all be forced to establish a platform that will guarantee the California voters that the state's fiscal problems will go away. The actual details of fiscal savings and social policy may be required, rather than a "Trust me, I'm from L.A.".

Aside from the anticipated mudslinging, regarding the California re-election, the debates between candidates might bring insight into their qualifications. What do these candidates think the major issues are, regarding the California state of affairs?

I don't know if getting the family (special interest) vote is necessarily a means to win an election, but I would hope it would outweigh that of the homosexuals, feminists, land barons, corporations, or the Mexicans. After all, a nation is judged by how they treat their families, a family is judged by how they treat their children, and our children will judge us all.

Most of the points just described were detailed in a submittal that I sent to the US House of Representatives, Committee on Ways and Means, on 07-26-03 entitled "Welfare Design Review", in support of the recent "Waste, Fraud, and Abuse" hearings held on 07-17-03. I wasn't the only singularity that had an axe to grind and the willingness to redress a few issues. I know of two other "whistle-blowers" who attempted to "send a kite to the shot-callers".

"Welfare Design Review" was basically a progressive recantation of my articles, which were published exclusively by (MensNewsDaily is the only Internet conduit for "hang down" gender issues, run by the illustrious emancipator and All-American, Mike LaSalle). The following is included in the "Level of Involvement" section of the submittal and is relevant to the California problem:

The bottom line of the California problem is the state's greed for federal funding and it's tacky justification to collect it. To identify the only special interest group that is worthy of recognition, California must identify our children and the families that are struggling to support them.

California Family Code 4053 e) states: "The guideline seeks to place the interests of children as the state's top priority". I believe it is high time California starts to live up to this pledge, and stops using our children's name in vein regarding their exploitation of children for money.
