California Budget Surplus!?

I’m just going to warn you right now, that if you are easily offended by obscene language then you probably want to stop reading this right now. I’m pretty sure that this is going to turn into a Planes, Trains and Automobiles moment as I go through the details of this.

As I read the paper this morning, I stumbled upon a column that states that the LAO (Legislative Analyst’s Office) of California predicts that there will be a $31 billion surplus for the 2022 budget year starting July 1st.

That’s billion with a “B” in case you glossed over that last sentence!

If this is not clear evidence that the greedy mother fuckers in Sacramento are taking too much of our money … then I don’t know what is!? I warned you the language was not going to be pretty … but how can you read that and not have a string of expletives fall out of your mouth!?

People have been struggling due to the pandemic. Struggling to put food on the table … struggling to pay their mortgage … struggling to pay for gas … and the state government is awash with cash … OUR CASH!

That surplus of money will exceed a constitutional limit on spending by more than $14 billion. (Holy shit! … there’s actually a limit on spending … that’s news to me … but apparently there’s no limit on collecting!) The surplus could require Pretty Boy Newsom and the group of criminals called “lawmakers” to either cut taxes … spend more money on schools and infrastructure … or perhaps give rebates to taxpayers. Any guess on the route they’ll take? My bet is on spending!

Newsom indicated that his preferred choice is to give the money back to taxpayers.

Preferred choice!?

Fuck you! Give me MY money back dick … and don’t tax me on it either … like you do on the tax refunds … I used to get!

“How we framed that historic surplus last year, similarly, we will frame our approach this year. I’m very proud of the historic tax rebate last year, and I look forward to making the decision that I think is in the best interests of 40 million Californians.” – Newsom

Wow! Don’t hurt yourself sucking your own dick Newsom! You’re so modest. If you didn’t catch that … there was a surplus last year also! If you don’t think they are taxing us too much … you’re a fucking idiot!

California businesses reported a record high $216.8 billion in taxable sales, a 38.8% increase over last year. Taxes on income, sales and corporations were 40% higher than September of last year … and don’t forget that last year we were all still struggling to pay bills due to the pandemic. Did the State Government care? It sure doesn’t seem like it! Now we know … the reason we were struggling is because the state was taking all of our fucking money!

Nick Maduros, director of the California Department of Tax and Fee Administration said …

It is a sign that business owners found creative ways to adapt during a difficult year.” – Nick Maduros

For any business owner who lost their business during the last year due to exorbitant taxes, government mandated shutdowns and prohibitive regulations … I guess you just weren’t creative enough! Here’s a picture of this tone deaf asshole, so you can put a face to the name.

Continuing along with the theme of stupid quotes from detached politicians …here’s a quote from Toni Atkins. (seen below)

“California’s strong fiscal health is not an accident. It is the direct result of a decade of responsible budgeting by Democratic legislators and governors that enabled the state to survive the pandemic downturn.” – Toni Atkins

Please tell me that you’re not buying that load of shit!

She is the the Senate President Pro Tempore who obviously has “higher-office aspirations” made obvious with her knob slobbering comments about her Democratic Party. You can stop stroking the governor … he does enough of it himself … he doesn’t need your help.

The amount of taxes collected is obscene (proven by the projected surplus) and yet they have the gall to say they don’t have enough money to accomplish all the things they want to do. Are you fucking serious!?

You obviously have more than enough money … you just don’t know what the fuck you’re doing!

At the same press conference where King Newsom said that his preference would be to give the money back to taxpayers, he also said he’d like to put most of the surplus either in the state’s savings account or spend it on one-time items that don’t require funding “so that we’re not caught flat-footed when the economy contracts, when the markets begin to adjust.”

Fuck you, you arrogant prick! The tax payers would like to keep their money in their own savings accounts or spend it themselves! You know damn well the Governor and the legislature are going to spend it on some bullshit pet project rather than save it for a “rainy day” like they stated. They’ll just spend it and then when the “economy contracts” … they will just cry in the camera and say they need more money. It’s the same shit that happens ad nauseam and the electorate … being a bunch of dumb shits … keeps voting for the same thing over and over and over again. There is some sort of phrase about insanity that comes to mind.

These greedy mother fuckers just take, take, take … but can’t ever seem to ever fix anything. Homeless people … oops, I mean … “unhoused individuals” (these new names and terms they come up with constantly are fucking ridiculous) are on every street now. We haven’t done anything to address the water shortage. We have some of the highest taxes on gas and the worst roads. We spend a shit ton of money per student and get dismal results. If you don’t believe me, just try giving a young worker $5.12 when your total comes up to $3.62 and watch their reaction.

The state constitution requires that lawmakers spend about 40% of state tax collection on public education which translate to an additional $11 billion going to schools because of the surplus. Awesome! More money to help push this fucking CRT bullshit and and continue the brainwashing of our kids!

I don’t know … maybe I’m the only one in this state who likes keeping my money!? I must be! All the smart people packed up and got the fuck out of this backwards-ass state. I guess I’m just the idiot who stays. I guess I like getting dry fucked on a regular basis!

Don’t blame me, I did my part to try to recall him! Unfortunately, I don’t have the power to suspend the mail … so all the dead people’s votes made it to the polling stations just in time.

I guess it’s time to start looking at other states to live in … where at least I’ll get lubed up first. If you have any suggestions on where I should move, please email me at comments@todayspetpeeve.com.

California Politician’s Hypocrisy

Gavin Newsom
David Chiu

A few days ago Governor Newsom signed Assembly Bill 1482. Under this new law property owners across the state cannot increase rent by more than 5% annually. David Chiu (D-SanFrancisco) authored the bill and stated “Our bill ensures tenants are protected against rent gouging …”

I won’t comment on whether I believe this is a good or bad bill because it’s irrelevant to the point I want to make. What I WANT to do is draw attention to the sheer hypocrisy of the governing body of California.

Let’s break this down.

In 1978 a landmark bill named Proposition 13 was passed by California voters. The bill limited the government’s power to increase property taxes to 2% annually. At the time, California County Assessors were pricing people out of their homes with re-assessed home values to try to increase their revenue. Although the government aggressively fought to defeat the passage of this bill … the voters prevailed.

Essentially, it was a law to prevent government from gouging property owners.

California government has constantly tried to repeal or knock down Prop 13 because it dramatically decreased the amount of revenue they can collect from property owners. Now the California Government has a ballot measure on the 2020 ballot to reform Prop 13 to re-assess commercial properties every three years thus creating a windfall in revenues for the State … at the expense of property owners.

In case any of you are having a hard time spotting the hypocrisy … let me spell it out for you. Apparently the government doesn’t like limits being put on it’s ability to collect revenue but they have no problem putting limits on their constituent’s ability to collect revenue. California is trying to get rid of the limit put on them while concurrently putting limits on property owners. I’m no scholar … but that sure seems to be the definition of hypocrisy to me!

Obviously a huge increase in rent is a problem that many people can’t afford. So, on it’s face, the bill seems like a good idea but it goes against free enterprise. I understand that something needs to be done to prevent people from their rent skyrocketing but when you have government stepping in and placing limits on property owners while at the same time trying to strike down a law that puts limits on the government … it just seems a little hypocritical.

Now looking towards the future …

Am I the only one nervous about the Government’s attack on Proposition 13!?

There is no limit to the amount of money the State Government wants to collect from it’s tax payers. What’s worse is that the majority of Californians take joy in fucking themselves over. There was already a state gas tax that goes to pay for roads … but it wasn’t enough for our money hungry state politicians … so they proposed another tax and it passed! Where the fuck are these Californians that keep voting for more taxes!?

Honestly, I’m a bit nervous about this ballot initiative to reform Prop 13 because I don’t have any faith left in my fellow Californians! They seem to be the easiest group of people to dupe! A $9-billion dollar bond Californians passed in 2008 to build a bullet train! Has anyone taken a ride on that bullet train yet!?

The government says it will only reform Prop 13 to affect commercial properties. Yeah, right! … and I’m holding the winning Lottery ticket for tonight’s drawing. Maybe they’ll start with that but once they earmark that money for some free program for illegal immigrants, they will be looking for another revenue source! You don’t think they are going to go after residential home owners when that time comes!?

How gullible are you? Rhetorical question!

Free Healthcare for Illegals

In what fucking world does this make sense!?

Oh yeah … California! The “Fuck-the-Working Man” state.

Governor Newsom … in all his “wisdom” … has passed a budget that will allocate $98 million in funding for undocumented young adults under the age of 26 to enroll in Medi-Cal. Hey! Governor Newsom, take a look around! Why don’t you take that $98,000,000 that you are going to spend on healthcare for people who are here ILLEGALLY and put it towards the crippling homeless problem that you are so conveniently blind to. Just look out your fucking window at City Hall and you can see what I’m talking about!

In all my years paying for healthcare, I have NEVER had the rates go down. Have you!? The bullshit logic Sacramento is peddling is that instead of illegals going into the emergency rooms when they are sick … with health care, they will be going to a primary care physician which will cost the state less. HUH!? How are multiple, regular office visits going to be cheaper than one time in the emergency room?

I’ll be honest, I don’t want to take the time to research the numbers and create a pie chart to prove this wrong. Honestly, maybe the numbers do work … but that is beside the point! It’s a matter of principle! These people broke the law and now we are going to reward them with free healthcare? Get the fuck outta here! With that kind of logic, we should let Bernie Madoff out of jail!

They broke the law! We are not supposed to reward them for that! They should be scared to get medical help … because they are here ILLEGALLY! If we make it okay for people living here illegally to get insurance and live their lives with no fear of being prosecuted for breaking the law … we might as well open the borders and put out the welcome mat …

… because now there is no reason for them not to come here. They figure all they have to do is get here … and everything is free!

Paulette Cha, a health policy expert for the Public Policy Institute of California, said it is unlikely that the expansion will attract more undocumented individuals to California who are specifically seeking out health care.

What!?

BULLSHIT! That’s exactly what it’s going to do! Hey Paulette, maybe you can pull your head out of Newsom’s ass and breath some fresh air in the hopes it will bring your common sense back.


Here is her bio in case you want to put a face to this absurd statement …


“If you believe in universal health care, you believe in universal health care” – Gavin Newsom

Hey Governor Sellout … I fork out $1000/month for my family to have health care. In the budget you passed, I’m STILL paying … but the person here ILLEGALLY is getting health care for free. That doesn’t sound like universal health care to me! It sounds like I’m getting fucked while someone who shouldn’t be here has won the lottery. If you want to try universal health care … maybe start by giving it to the citizen’s FIRST

… and then if there is anything left over, then you can try to sell the idea of covering the illegals.

Did you think I wouldn’t get pissed!? Oh! … you did figure I’d get pissed … that’s why you threw in a teeny-tiny subsidy for everyone paying the bill to try to make them feel like you aren’t bending them over a barrel and dry fucking them … which you are! Maybe the majority of people in this state don’t understand how shit works but I paid attention in civics class (when they used to teach it) and can actually do math … and it doesn’t add up! So, let me get this straight. I’m going to pay for someone else to have free health care while I pay and then the discount you are going to give everyone, I’m going to pay for ALSO! How does math work on your planet!?

Who’s going to pay for it!?

Businesses?

I doubt it! Most of them have already left for other states to get away from the toxic business environment you’ve helped create.

The Rich?

Unlikely! They can afford a great lawyer to help take advantage of all the tax loopholes so they don’t pay shit!

So I guess the shrinking middle class is on the hook … again! There is a limit to how much we can pay before we fall into the poor category, idiot. What then!? You certainly aren’t going to get any Federal help.

How about you focus on helping ME out … your constituent … and sideline your little anti-Trump bullshit! I DON’T need you to lead the fight against him … I need you to make California a place I can afford to live. I need you to take care of the homeless problem so I don’t step in human shit while I’m walking on the sidewalk. I need you to keep violent criminals off the street so my kids can play outside. I need you to fix the roads with that gas tax everyone I know voted against and I need you to rein in health care costs … for ME!not for people who are here illegally.

To quote you Governor Newsom:

“California is infamous for passing things and then waking up and saying, ‘What the hell did we just pass?'”

… consider what you just passed one of them.
