It just keeps getting better at the state Capitol, doesn’t it? So far, if you are keeping score people, that’s three this year alone, and state Sen. Leland Yee seems to be the heavyweight in this group of greedy political circus.

Did you notice how fast the rest of the politicians tried to run away from Yee as fast as they could, because they were afraid to have it rub off on them? Yee, along with his corrupted buddies, had the nerve to try to ban guns and large clips, while he was allegedly trying to sell shoulder rocket launchers.

Doesn’t it make you wonder just how many more will fall before this is all over? Too many rats try to jump ship when something like this happens, but is it because they don’t want to get caught doing something wrong. Maybe it’s a good time for background checks on political people, too.

    This corruption scenario is inevitable when you have one single political party entrenched in power thanks to the public unions that recycle some of our own tax money to run ads to defeat tax payers and keep access to the tax feeding trough

    Who would I like to see as president? Someone who has the best interest of the country at heart. Not someone out to make a name for themselves, or out to stay in office by giving away enough tax money to buy enough votes through existing, and new (obamacare), entitlement programs. Someone who can look at our own country as a priority and is not running around the world giving my money away. Someone who is out helping build houses for Habitat for Humanity instead of playing golf. I want someone who will listen to the everyday people who pay the majority of the taxes he/she spends.

    That is a good idea Lloyd but I don’t think you will find much in their background most politicians don`t become dirty until after they are in Sacramento and the lobbyist get their hands on them, If you want to make a change the best thing we can do is let’s stop lobbyist but that is probable is going to cross free speech lines, so I take that back. The best thing we can do is MOVE, this state is a very liberal state and it is just going to keep going that way until the democrats run it into the ground and the voters of California finally see that a real change is needed and maybe than they will ask them self what is working for example Wisconsin broke the teacher union and slowed spending or Tennessee and South Carolina cut the taxes for big companies and brought in blue collar jobs, but until people see that in this state it will be the same old thing,
