    I thought all your porker government tax hikes for more thug cops and welfare cases were supposed to stop all of your distinctly Californian "cultural" proclivities. Perhaps you should now rename Fairfield to "Barackistan". Maybe we need to just keep mindlessly funneling money at welfare and cops---each cancelling the other out.

    See, that's your problem Rich...you tried to think. You're too crazy to think. So crazy in fact that you didn't bother to read what the measure was supposed to do and once again came up with your own wacky paranoid conclusions. Get back on your meds before you hurt yourself or others.
