I was going to post a brief mention of the budget deal reached in California yesterday (following months of impasse), only to wake up this morning to find out that the deal is in jeopardy.
Who is blocking it?
The Republicans in the state legislature, of course.
This state is truly fucked in the head.
We are staring into a deep, dark abyss at the moment. And the only thing that will save us is a new constitution. My thoughts on the matter, from earlier in the month, here.
