Californians want it all, and we want it for free

In the 39 years I have lived in California, I have come to understand how Californians think. They want the cleanest air, the cleanest water, the best schools, the best roads, the best police, fire and emergency services, the toughest prisons, the cheapest food and the best customer service -- and they don't want to pay for any of it!

That's right, the best of everything, and no taxes -- and no illegal immigrants either. Just offer to cut taxes or kick out illegals and the electorate of this fair state will elect any B-movie specialist to any political office they want.

Wake up! We get what we pay for. If we want the best, we better expect to pay for it. What we get on the cheap is just that.
