State furloughs are called justified. The majority of CA taxpayers are living on furlough pay cuts....our employees should behave like 'one of us'. Why do they think they are 'above' us...we're their bosses!. I'm sick that crooked judges are owned by the public unions,,,,and there is no lower form of life, than SEIU...made up mostly of people who would otherwise be UNemployable. They are not educated, are mostly immigrants, and think every demand can be taken to the streets. I'm sick of it. I'm ready to meet them in the street. With this lousy legislature, and the union owned judges, I really don't see any hope for CA.
