Psst, I think the 'i' key might be broken: Wieckowski, not Wieckowsk.

How fitting that a bankruptcy attorney would want to join CA government? I guess he figured this will be the mother of all bankruptcies! It seems ironic that his advice to people is to "work harder' when the legislature never is forced to sacrifice.

I think I am finally getting why we are so messed up in Sacramento? We keep electing people with absolutely no capability to do anything remotely close to running a business which is what we need in Sacramento. Take a look at the qualifications of the people backing the bankrupcy attorney. Pleasanton Councilwoman Cheryl Cook-Kallio, a Fremont high school teacher, State Senator Ellen Corbett (D-10th)Former lawyer and civic activist , former State Senator Liz Figueroa former owner of workers compensation firm, Fremont Mayor Bob Wasserman, former police chief and others from Fremont and other south Alameda County communities joined Wieckowski at the rally, held at the Olive Hyde Guild in the Mission San Jose section of Fremont. How in the world can these people solve the problems of Sacramento when they are the ones who's professions have contributed to its demise. Keep in mind that he is running for Torrico's (another attorney) vacated seat.........god help us all.

Actually, one correction Jeb. Instead of "nearly 100" well-wishers, there was actuall "well over" 100 well-wishers!!! (;

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel " pick up your shovel , mount your asses and camels , and I will lead you to the promise land".

Nearly 75 years ago , Roosevelt said, " Lay down your shovels , sit on your asses , and light up a camel , this is the promised land".

Now Obama is going to steal your shovel , kick your asses , Raise the price of camels , and mortgage the promised land
