Don’t Call Me Madam

California is broke — flat broke. Two of the reasons for the state’s desperate financial crisis are seeking yet another chance to completely wreck the state’s economy.

Her [Barbara Boxer] foray into supporting “Cap and Trade” has garnered derision from all who see through the “global warming” hoax, and her performance on the floor of the Senate was a miserable failure. As documented by Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., and reported by Wes Vernon in Wednesday on the Web (, her Cap and Trade bill “would have resulted in 1) higher gas prices at the pump, 2) the largest tax increase in history, 3) the biggest pork bill ever, 4) the loss of up to 4 million jobs by 2030, 5) a huge bureaucratic intrusion into your life, and 6) the biggest reorganization of the American economy since the 1930s.”

And Madam Boxer wants the voters of California to allow her to continue for six more years her attempts to wreck this nation’s economy by fighting a non-existent peril – “global warming” — and compelling Americans to pay homage and blind obedience to the wisdom of the bloated federal government, which doesn’t know the difference between hot and cold.

California has a stunning budget deficit of $19 billion, $6.2 billion of which is earmarked for retiree pension and benefit payments. That amount is due to nearly triple in size over the next 10 years as the state’s swollen pension grows higher and higher. Frighteningly, as The Wall Street Journal reports, “California’s unfunded pension liability is scored at more than $120 billion, with some estimates rising to $500 billion.”

Brown was once dubbed “Governor Moonbeam” by the late Chicago columnist Mike Royko, who called the state “the world’s largest outdoor mental asylum.”
