Fiscal Liberals

Interesting that with Kaleefornia having a raft of tax-raising, green power mandating, budget busting initiatives on its ballot, Pravda By the Bay finds fiscal problems with these two:

Prop. 6 would increase an array of sentences on crimes related to street gangs, drug dealing and guns. For example, a gang member convicted of a violent felony would get an extra 10 years in prison. Accomplices in crimes in which a gun was used – such as a drive-by shooting – would be subjected to the same enhanced penalties as the shooter. It would increase the penalties on gang-related graffiti and prohibit illegal immigrants arrested for violent felonies or gang crimes from being released on bail without a hearing.

Prop. 9, designed to strengthen the rights of victims and to make it more difficult to release inmates from prison, also would have an enormous budget impact. It expands the victims’ rights that were approved by voters in 1982.

Now, their opposition isn’t to the idea of putting and keeping criminals in prison.  That just sort of skates by.  The big problem that Pravda has with this is it would cost money to keep these thugs in prison.

May I ask a question here – if its too expensive to provide safety for your citizens, then just what in the world do you think government is for?  Its rather obvious that keeping the murderers, rapists, and thugs out of the society of those who want to live in lawful peace just is too much of a stretch for a government that sponsors state-paid day care.

Again – we only hope that Kaleefornia keeps up the crazy.  Raise taxes, put impossible mandates in place, increase regulation, implement the whole of the progressive agenda.

We can always use the business here in Colorado.
