California Proposition Results for 2010
Proposition 19 – 56.9% NO – You put your weeeed in it… Doesn’t look like this is even going to get close to passing. 43% is about 7 joints short of legalizing Marijuana in California. Looks like we’ll have to find something else to tax the hell out of to balance the budget!
Proposition 20 – 65.5% YES – This is a slam dunk. Not a slam dunk like finding WMD in Iraq but a real slam dunk!
Proposition 21 – 61.3% NO – I’m sure nobody wanted to pony up the extra 18 bucks, but really this shouldn’t have passed. It’s a half-assed bill… Literally! Half the existing funds would be evaporated to go waste on something else our state deems necessary (but probably most of us don’t).
Proposition 22 – 64.3% YES – Another slap in the face to the State of California’s overspending and raping of our local resources. Now they’ll have to find somewhere else to steal the money from our pockets, and it’s going to be tough looking at how 26 is doing!
Proposition 23 – 57.4% NO – This isn’t going to pass. It was the CA ballot IQ test. If you really think repealing some air pollution laws are going to get unemployment down to 5 percent…
Proposition 24 – 61.4% NO – I’m quite surprised this one isn’t going to pass, but it looks like us CA business folk get to keep some tax breaks…
Proposition 25 – 53% YES – Looks like this one is going to pass, and that is extremely scary! Budgets should be achieved through compromise, not by the whim of whomever holds the majority of the seats in our State Congress. This could spell disaster for the state budget as the ruling party will get to spend however they want while taxes still require compromise. When you really look at the tax vs. spend issues, it’s the spending that is the biggest problem, not the taxes. Government spend themselves into a hole, and this passage will just make the hole easier and bigger!
Proposition 26 – 56.4% YES – It’s funny that a ballot measure that requires 2/3 majority vote isn’t going to receive 2/3 of the votes, but this puppy is going to pass.
Proposition 27 – 61.3% NO – Clearly, Californians don’t have a sense of humor when it comes to ballot measures. Proposition 20 and 27 should have passed, making it the most hilarious combo of propositions. Oh well…
