Terminator Update

After enjoying a night's sleep, I woke up this morning and found that it was a clean sweep. All of the propositions that were on the ballot for this special election in California went down in defeat. It is as if the election never happened. How weird is that? I have never seen an election in California where not one proposition passed. I was disappointed to see that Prop 73 (abortion notification for parents) and Prop 75 (permission for Unions to spend dues on politics) failed, but that disappointment was tempered by the defeat of Prop 74. Assuming nothing weird happens this year, at the beginning of the next school year, I will become tenured. That is great! I wish the general public could see how many times new teachers are told, "You are just gonna have to bite your tongue and take it until you get your tenure." In August of 2006, I will hear that no more!

Good Day to You, Sir

Agreed. 73 and 75 deserved to pass. I am much older than you and I have never seen an election in which NO initiatives passed. What a waste of $$$.

Waste of money? I thought a lot of people made money and put it into banks and investments thereby generating more income?

Econ 101: The "wasteful" election did nothing by grow the economy and increase the GDP.

Government 101: Elections determine the will of the people, unless of course they are a "waste" of money.

I wonder if anonymous thinks all government transfer payments are waste? An election is one of the few things I want government to spend money on.
