To 'Sandy' - Why? Why would this be of interest? There is no list of speakers, topics, or substance of what will be discussed. Is the link to the California *Democratic* Caucus at the bottom a hint? And if the Democratic Caucus can't spell simple English words on a website, you can be sure I won't be watching.

Thanks Sandy, but I am sure people already know what is wrong with California: it all comes down to pensions and unions, those unreasonable obligations that California cannot afford and yet continues to honor, plus illegals and too many government jobs.

Once California decides to do without those pensions, once it decides to get rid of so much redundant staff (think State of Education, and County of Education, think even of individual agencies, too many to list), once each city in California stops hiring so many people and paying them so much money, once that is all done, then we can have a webcast with real problems.

Until union spending is under control, government trims the number of employees and their salaries, and illegals are no longer subsidized (college, health care, food, etc) anything they say is nonsense and is meant to distract from the real problem.

Sorry, but further commenting on this topic has been closed.
