The blame rest on the State's Republican party. You controlled the State for 8 years and didn't put it in a good place financially. Then you best candidate was unelectable as governor. In the end that is how JBE won....

re: What are some realistic solutions to the LA budget issue? - cssamerican

re: JEB... So how did your family use eminent domain for the Rangers? - cssamerican

It is the only way in many cases to accomplish large projects. I don't have any real issue with it other than the amount paid for the property, i...
