California’s gold in politicians’ pockets

The people of California are getting the shaft. The lawmakers get 90-plus thousand dollars per year, plus $125 per day living expenses. Everyone else has to live on their regular salary. Why can’t the lawmakers do the same? Greed!

My auto insurance just went up $200 per. I get good driver rates.

Gray Davis is doubling our registration fees. All the gold in California is in the pockets of our politicians.

I will have to give up my car or leave California. That’s sad; California is my home.
