Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger fiddles while State of California burns
Sheer arrogance and apathy prevail as State of California is going under because of insane partisan politicking & stalemate with current state constitution twisted beyond comprehension and common sense.
Unmitigated open/illegal immigration, anti-business culture, hostile race relations & corrupt union and corporate influence and high taxation for ineffective government continue to strangle the life out of California.
California was one of the best in the nation in terms of education and living standard just three decades ago; now it's down the shitter because of festering, short-sighted liberalism and selfish, anti-tax neo-conservative assholiness.
Who the hell is this smug clown?

...Schwarzenegger and I then repaired to a tent that he had put up in a courtyard next to his office, which allows him to smoke cigars legally at work (no smoking is allowed inside the Capitol). The tent is about 15 square feet, carpeted with artificial turf and outfitted with stylish furniture, an iPod, a video-conferencing terminal, trays of almonds, a chess table, a refrigerator and a large photo of the governor. Schwarzenegger reclined deeply in his chair, lighted an eight-inch cigar and declared himself “perfectly fine,” despite the fiscal debacle and personal heartsickness all around him. “Someone else might walk out of here every day depressed, but I don’t walk out of here depressed,” Schwarzenegger said. Whatever happens, “I will sit down in my Jacuzzi tonight,” he said. “I’m going to lay back with a stogie.”
