PROP 1A, High Speed Rail Bond Initiative:
YES! You've driven up the 5 before right? It's boring as hell. I'd rather risk my life with Amtrack than drive it and risk a speeding ticket for going 90 ON A FUCKING STRIAGHTAWAY.
PROP 2, Standards For Confining Chickens And Farm Animals:
YES! Boo-Hoo farming is going to be slightly more expensive call the WAHBULENCE. It's not like there are plenty of farmers wishing they could work in California, so maybe you should quit your bitching about not being able to torture animals. You sick fuck.
PROP 3, Children's Hospital Initiative:
NO! Too expensive. Glad to know that hospital operators can get the tax payers to fund their pointless remodels. I wonder if I could do that too? Either way, if this was for new hospitals or better services it would probably have my vote, but I don't think dying kids need the lastest from ikea, they need a cure for cancer.
PROP 4, Abortion Waiting Period For Minors:
Abstain. I'll give you my opinion when I grow a vagina.
PROP 5, Non-violent Drug Offense Rehabilitative Sentencing:
YES! I voting for this solely on the fact that it futher dicriminalizes certain harmless drugs. I wish that the rehabilitation part was seperate-- so I could vote no on it-- but c'est la vie.
PROP 6, Local Law Enforcement Funding:
NO! When I was 21 I was harassed by an LA County Sheriff because I might be breaking curfew. If we have enough cops to harass people like me, maybe the problem isn't funding, its management.
PROP 7, Renewable Energy:
YES! I hate that they used a fake misleading organization name to oppose this. Turns out the Concil for Responsible Energy Use (or whatever it is in the commerical) is So. Cal. Edision, who- SUPRISE!- doesn't want to have to eat some profits to provide clean energy. Fuck 'em vote yes.
PROP 8, Ban Evil Gay Marriage:
NO! However will I get to marry two women and a dog if this passes. I LOVE THAT DOG!
PROP 9, Victim's Rights:
NO! I'm just going to quote the LA Times on this: "If the concern is protection of families from further victimization, as proponents claim, that goal can be met without granting families a new and inappropriate role in prosecutions." Suck it victims.
PROP 10, Renewable Energy:
YES! I was split on this, because Boone T. Pickens is kind of like, have government subsidize my new natural gas firm. But on the other hand, it pays for research in alternative energy and I support that, so when the oil runs out we can laugh and sell our new energy and get rich like the Saudis. 10,000 check every year, yes please.
PROP 11, Redistricting:
NO! Why change it? Works so far. Plus any appointed council that doesn't have ANY oversight kind of worries me (Supreme Court exculded)
PROP 12, Money For Veterans To Get Houses:
YES! To quote Evan: "I know I know. Giving out money to people? But hey, these people did more for our country than we will. Plus, if it takes one person bitching about Vietnam off the street, and away from us in a house, then everyone wins." In the internet vernacular I would state my agree with THIS.
President of USA:
Obama. If you love your momma vote for Obama. But seriously, other than his retarded stance on Nuclear energy I don't disagree with any of his ideas, he's shown himself to not only be an eloquent speaker but a motivated and bright politican. While I was thinking of voting 3rd party, Barr is a lying oprotunist hack, Nader is crazier than a bag of snakes, and McKinnley (McKinney?) hasn't even advertised or made her (his?) stances known. As much as I'd love to vote Green Party I can't unless they get their shit together. I mean if the crazy libertarians can, so can you.
United States Representative:
HOLY SHIT we are voting for State Representative this year? Since only two names are on the ballot, I'm probably abstaining. While Harman did support the bail out, I can't bring myself to vote Republican, as he probably would've voted for it too. Actually, I'm going to endorse myself for this position. Write me in for the 36th District (if you can).
Ted Leiu. I've met him and heard various city officals speak highly of him. And the assembly hasn't messed too much up vet. So yeah, there you go.
Measure J Money for Community Colleges:
NO! I didn't go to community college so that's strike one. Strike two comes with the fact that the funds mostly go to infrastructure repair and not better teaching/more classes/ lower tutition. Lastly, El Camino just opened a new English(?) building, it doesn't look like they need the money that bad.
Measure Q Money for LAUSD
NO! I went to school in an asbestos filled, lead painted school house and that's what I want for my children. More reasonably, the measure talks about building specialized classrooms (labs) that I've never found useful past elementry school. Maybe you should scale back the football team's funding before running to the taxpayers. (acedotal evidence, my high school just finished a new stadium for its crappy football team) If this had been focused on technology, science, and better teaching then it would recieve my vote, but no it does not.
Measure R Metro/street improvements
YES! Fuck yes I'm voting for this shit. Look at this list of fucking stuff it does bitches:
Synchronizes bitch ass fucking traffic signals;
Repairs shit eating grampa potholes;
HOLY FUCKING PENISES WITH DICKS it extends light rail with airport connections;
Fuck yes it improves freeway traffic flow (5, 10, 14, 60, 101, 110, 138, 210, 405 motherfucker, 605, 710);
Keeps senior / student / disabled fares low as shit out of a baby's ass;
Provides clean-fuel buses, you fucking cock;
Expands fucking subway / Metrolink / bus service;
Dedicate millions for motherfucking community traffic relief;
