Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

California going broke paying public 1400+ employees over $200k, but at least they’re focused on addressing the REAL problems plaguing the state

You know the bailout request is coming any day now.  Californiastan must figure that the feds will oblige, too.  “Too big to fail”, I’m guessing.

Here’s some of the financial management (or lack thereof) contributing to the once-Golden state’s fiscal demise:

More than 1,400 state employees were paid in excess of $200,000 last year, according to compensation data made public for the first time Tuesday on Controller John Chiang‘s website.

Of those, 790 were prison doctors, dentists or nurses. More than 300 others were psychiatrists and other medical professionals working for the Department of Mental Health.

One prison doctor collected $777,423 in 2010 and a dentist took home $599,403, according to the website. The president of the state’s stem cell research agency received $482,234.

The database lists state positions by title and allows users to sort by department, salary range and total wages.

Chiang, a Democrat who has received millions in campaign contributions from state employee unions, did not include workers’ names even though that information is public and has been provided upon request for years.

But credit the state legislature for addressing this issue head on.  Nah, I’m just effing with you:

A bill to require California public schools to teach the historical accomplishments of gay men and lesbians passed the state Legislature on Tuesday in what supporters call a first for the nation.

Governor Jerry Brown, a Democrat, has not said publicly whether he supports the bill, which he has 12 days to sign or veto once it reaches his desk later this month. If he takes no action, the measure would become law automatically. …

California already requires public schools to teach the contributions made to society by women and by racial and ethnic groups that were historically discriminated against, such as blacks, Latinos and Native Americans.

Supporters of the latest bill said it would simply include gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender individuals in that existing requirement, making it part of the curriculum in history and other social studies classes.

“We’re going broke, sinking into insolvency.  Quick, let’s pass some gay-friendly legislation to deflect attention from our impending bankruptcy!  Because at least when we’re belly up, our gay friends will still think we’re fabulous!”

    1) What does the person’s sexual status have to do with them being a historical figure. Alexander the Great conquered most of the known world and Richard the Lion heart led the third crusade…It wasn’t until much later (and not in school) that I learned they batted for the other team. Sexuality of historical figures is not a subject that needs to be taught is social studies classes anywhere.
    2) People wonder why kids in school today know nothing about our founding fathers, running of government and economics when teachers are forced to teach how Julius Caesar was “every woman’s man and every man’s woman.”

  3. Seconding what Steve says. I just wish teacher haters would get it through their thick heads that most of the crap they complain about in public schools “teaching” were not created by teachers. Steve and his peers are teaching during the day while morons from education think tanks lobby the idiots in the legislature about what schools should be doing.

  4. ….and flakes, Spinny Liberal. Lots of flakes.
    I agree with Steve. A person’s sexual orientation, or whatever, has little or nothing to do with how they contributed to history. Teach them history, not a sexual perspective.
    Watch Calixico go the way of Mexico with the “Moonbat” at the the helm of state governnment.
    Stupid liberals.
