**Written by Doug Powers Now that Arnold has some extra free time, he’s looking to get back into the movies: Former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger tweeted on Thursday that he is ready to return to show business. “Exciting news,” he wrote. “My friends at CAA (Creative Artists Agency, his talent firm) have been asking me […]
Retiring celebrity governor Arnold Schwarzenegger of California was bad for the GOP in so many ways, I’ve stopped counting them. So, how did Schwarzenegger leave office? By committing one last shameful act of back-scratching politics as usual and granting a commutation to the son of a Democrat political crony, former California Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez […]
**Written by Doug Powers Admittedly, it would be a perfect fit: Who’s more qualified to peddle the most expensive myth in history than a guy who made a fortune in fiction?

State property is no place for patriotism
I noted the California Senate Appropriations Committee’s plans last week to push a single-payer program through the legislature. Showing their impeccable timing, the progressives approved the bill in the Senate yesterday at a cost of $200 billion a year…just as the state controller announced that California is set to run out of cash again in […]
The Taxinator may be breathing a sigh of relief over “fixing” California’s budget problems. But darker clouds loom. Case in point: California’s huge government pension fund is expected to report today a whopping annual loss of an estimated $56.8 billion, almost a quarter of its investment portfolio. The loss at the California Public Employees’ Retirement […]
Look out, Oklahomans. Here come the California refugees: Fleeing the Great Depression and a drought unprecedented in American history, a vast wave of Oklahomans and Texans dubbed “Okies” loaded everything they could onto crowded vehicles during the 1930s and headed west for California. Today, in huge numbers, their grandchildren are moving back… …From 2004 through […]
Hey, Gov. Schwarzenegger.

Arnold Schwarzenegger says he’s “happy” illegal immigrants get state services and says they’re not to blame for California’s $24.3 […]
“Special Nurse:” $350,000+ Municipal railway manager: $325,000+ “Administrative services” department head: $280,000+ And no, the figures do not include pensions and benefits. And they want you to bail them out? Please.
Photoshop via W.C. Varones Arnold Schwarzenegger was so preoccupied with lecturing the national GOP about the need to “rebrand” itself and move left that he forgot to mind California’s own business. Today, his desperate tax-and-spend ballot measures are expected to all go down in flames at the polls. Tea Party activists of all political stripes […]
Hey, the amorphous TARP bailout program has been used for everything else under the sun, why not as a cover for debt-laden California? Barney Frank thinks it’s a peachy idea: California Treasurer Bill Lockyer on Wednesday formally requested federal help to backstop a wave of short-term borrowing the cash-strapped state will need to undertake this […]
Well, how d’ya like that rebranded GOP now? The Taxinator, Calif. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, welcomed Barack Obama to southern California with open arms this afternoon — praising his courage and extolling the porkulus package. Schwarzenegger has been busy taxing everything in sight in the once-Golden State, pouring fuel on the anti-Prop. 8 fire, and preparing […]
I’ll be back…for a bailout.
“Fresh new way.”
“They should be on it and on it until they get it done.”
Tastes awful, less filling.
“This could be an extraordinarily interesting experiment.”
Dissent is patriotic, for once!
Universal health care. Yeah, that sounds like a good idea. With emphasis on serving illegal aliens, of course. Much more at my blog.
