So I lied. I ended up voting after all. That explains the "I Voted" sticker you see above. Mi esposa drove me - said it was my civic duty.
I voted "No" on everything.
To answer this question - yes, California is ungovernable.
Crusader Axe mused on this topic the other day.
I think of this as the state faces a fairly devastating mess. I have thought since coming down here that there was something critically wrong with the state's fiscal situation. I grew up in the NE, where we had high taxes and excellent services. I spent a lot of my life in Germany, where they had high taxes and marvelous, cutting edge, state services. I've lived in states with moderate taxes (Washington, Arizona) and low taxes (Texas) and basically, you get what you pay for. However, in California, you face a combo of very high taxes (how exactly is my state taxable income higher than my federal?) and really fucked up services.
Since California's odd governance( budgets require 2/3 majorities to pass as do new taxes!) combined with a bewildering inability to see further than the end of the dick of the governator, which is not so great after all the steroids, are condemning it to something other than greatness. California is the new West Virginia because of the inability of politicians to say no to their core constituencies. Soon, everybody will be saying no to everything. Jerry Brown and Bob Guccione and Tom Cruise are slouching toward Bethlehem, like a bizarre two-thirds (cause that's all we can afford!) of Dorothy and the gang on the way to OZ.
About the NRA sticker...I found it stuck to the inside of mi esposa's rear passenger window. She said her gun-toting co-worker stuck it there just to piss her off. I don't have anything against gun ownership, per se - but I ripped it off anyways. It totally ruined the aesthetic of the window.
