Obama and the Dems take California for granted. That's why we get nothing. Time to send a signal to Washington come November.

Perhaps Anna Eshoo & Zoe Lofgren are slackin' on the representing part of the job while spending most of their time with an eye for fundraising? I appreciate Evan Bayh's comment today expressing his opinion that all incumbants should be voted out of office. Would these two rep's ever declare they are not running for another term (unless it was to run for higher office)?

If you want to see the future of California, you need look no further than Vallejo. ALL incumbents should be voted out, except for the two with actual principles: Dennis Kucinich on the Left, and Ron Paul on the Right. The rest of them give prostitutes a bad name.

Depending on the government for handouts is a pretty lousy business strategy.
