Bittersweet election and other thoughts


Last updated 11/17/2006 at Noon

This past election had its good and bad outcomes! I love Arnold, but the only reason he won is because he’s a rhino and Angelides is pathetic. I was disappointed to see Strickland and McClintock lose. People are so easily swayed by nonsense. People should actually take time to read what candidates have to say before casting votes.

Strickland wanted to cut waste, fraud, corruption and audit the LAUSD, which needs to be done! He fought Davis and the electric companies and won. Chiang says he is proud to have won against big tobacco. News flash, people: People have been trying to bring down big tobacco since the ’60s and it’s not going away. Besides, he probably got some special interest tax giveaways for his campaign.

Strickland is endorsed by taxpayer organizations, while Chiang is endorsed by a California teachers’ union and that doesn’t say much, because when you see someone endorsed by a teachers’ union it’s usually not something good.

McClintock wants to lower and get rid of some taxes, opposes illegals and hates eminent domain used wrongfully. Garamendi is a liberal tree-hugger from the Clinton Administration who wants to give schools more money to waste.

Feinstein needed to lose, but unfortunately Mountjoy wasn’t that strong. I can’t stand her or Boxer; in the future, I hope to win a seat from one of them.

Prop. 85 didn’t pass? People need to ethically re-examine themselves.

On the other side, Prop. A didn’t pass by almost a two-to-one margin. If it would have passed, I don’t think anything would have happened, because the last time a state tried to take away federal property was the beginning of the Civil War: SC and Fort Sumter. How did that go? SOS is in power!

People seem to not like Tim Oder, according to a few letters to the editor in the Village News. Actually, he is one of the most straightforward, honest guys you’ll ever meet in life. I’ve had the privilege to work with him in the classroom and in athletics.

My heart goes out to Adam Burke and his family.
