    Governator cutting education funds!!

    I was watching CNN just a minute ago, and epic lulz ensued when lou dobbs came on and reporter the California proposed budget cuts, which would include state education funds. A hefty amount, somewhere close to 5 billion I think. Followed by images from california of teachers protesting. It went something like this;
    "FUXXOR U GOVERNATOr!!!! I'm THE TEACHERS! U CAN'T FIRE ME, WHY DO YOU HATE CHILDRENS?"

    and I lol'd hard at how stupid people are regarding these issues.


    oh he's also cutting funds from other areas because he says budget is shit.

    Protip: when you spend more than you make you need to cut spending somewhere

    Protip #2: no matter what you cut its going to piss off a lot of people.

    I personally haven't looked over the california budget in detail, but if i'm not mistaken the california congress has to approve it first don't they? People always give the executive branch a lot of shit on budget issues, but don't stop to consider they can't approve a budget by themselves, much less do anything.

    i know some idiot is going to mention bush going to war with iraq by himself, congress gave him that power so blame them

    Something about 318 billion proposed cuts to California education budget alone. Or was it 318 million? Probably 318 million, plus 10% increase to tuition.

    I had to go to some fucking citizen action school district meeting shit the other day for my American Government class and the teachers and parents wouldn't stop QQ'ing.

    They were like, "Instead of cutting everything else, cut down the administration staff! They make like ten bajillion dollars a year!"

    And since the administration is in charge they were like, "Lolno"

    But really, I had to sit through like fifty people who each had a three minute time slot to talk and every single fucking person chose to talk about increased class sizes. They were actually fucking crying, "*sob* *sob* *sob* I just don't know *sob* *sob* what I'll do *sob* *sob* *sob* *sob* *sob* if my kid has to *SOB* have five more people in his class BOO HOO HOO HOO HOO"

    Seriously, nobody cares, you can't change anything, and increased class sizes aren't going to make that much of a difference.

    california budget still a mess from good ole' grey davis. We need huge cuts across the board with an increase in income.

    Nothing wrong with cutting education when your entire state is in such debt that cali is in. I expect only residents of the state to understand this

    for once I'd like to see an official come out and say "Hey, we can utilize a new teaching technique and teach high school is 3 years! Saving billions!" but that will never happen, since the unions will have that man's balls.

    Government is there to waste my money. Suggesting an ounce of efficiency is anathema.

    I believe tuitions will increase. There is another problem about some people fucked with their major being delayed. Like for my school the poli sci majors might be fucked because the classes they need to take to get their degree is only offered once a year and only has like 12 people enrolled. Normally the class would go, but with the budget cuts theres a chance a class like that will be canceled.
