Bell Curve The Law Talking Guy Raised by Republicans U.S. West
Well, he's kind of had it in for me ever since I accidentally ran over his dog. Actually, replace "accidentally" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

And in other news . . . California has a New Governor

Governor moonbeam is back! And his opening salvo reminds us why we love practical Jerry. He opened by proposing that 48,000 state employees turn in their cell phones . This represents a 50% cut.

One commentator suggested that he also look at all the unused landlines that the state is paying for, but that are not being used. The article mentions that in a 2009 audit, they found 8000 unused lines in LA county alone. The annual cost: $1.5 mil .

Brown is an interesting and parsimonious character. He never moved into the governors' mansion in his first term, and brought to bear his monk's frugality to Sacramento. Then there is the story about the A $100 million hole in the carpet in the governor's office. Before leaving office, Ronald Regan offered to replace the carpet in the governor's office at his own expense. Brown refused. Near his desk, a hole opened up in the carpet. One day, Davis informed Brown that GSA has been scheduled to fix the hole. Brown was angry. "Don't you understand -- that hole has already saved us a couple of hundred million dollars. "People can't come in here and rail against me for not funding something, when there's a whole in the governor's rug."

So far, he refused office space on K Street in Sacramento for his transition team, preferring to use his Oakland campaign offices.


Apparently, the other thing Brown's time in seminary taught him was the need for sacrifice. He is going to be making some very unpopular cuts normal liberals would never suggest, such as cutting spending on public libraries. But that is the nature of the beast. We go from flash (Arnie) to stash.

OK, so I must admit that I'm not that familiar with Browns first tenure as governor. These proposals all make him seem pragmatic to a fault. How did he get tagged with the governor "moonbeam" nickname? Was it just prejudice about a young Governor from California or did it have some basis in his policies of that time?

USWest said...

He once proposed that California fund its own space program.

Other odd legalities: He refused to use the official car preferring to drive is Pontiac.

He served as gov. twice (1973-1983). His farther also served twice (1959-1967).

He used is life savings to buy a $1.8 mil, 5 story house that overlooks the SF Bay, that is probably his one indulgence.

USwest said...

I didn't mean to say legalities, I meant to say frugalities!(Is that a word?)

The Law Talking Guy said...

Jerry Brown is probably the smartest man to be in the governor's chair since it was wrested from Mexico in 1849. But he's an odd duck and smart can bleed into crazy real fast. Still, he's exactly what we need right now. Because he's got in spades what Arnie and Davis never had, lots of visionary ability. He can do the big picture thing that we need so badly. And he's had 30 years to reflect on what he would do differently as governor this time, something that most of us will never get to do. I love the carpet-hole story. We have a couple of ceiing tiles in the Nave of the church on the side aisle that fell out eight years ago. Never been replaced. I refer to them jokingly as the "stewardship tiles."

Raised By Republicans said...

Well, I certainly wish California well. The years of inaction under Governor Muscles are forcing some very difficult choices. I'm glad that the first governor in decades not to have to deal with the 2/3 requirement for budgets will be a person with vision, brains and experience!

Dr. Strangelove said...

OK, sorry to be mundane here... I don't get the "stewardship tiles" joke. I mean, I see the parallel to the governor's rug... Is there more? Can you explain it, please?

I also applaud Jerry Brown and his budget--painful though it may be--is the first one with gimmicks or one-time accounting tricks. As a spokesman from the UC system put it, it's a harsh budget, but since it's actually a real one, we would be able to start making long-term plans again.

Dr. Strangelove said...

I meant to say, the first budget with NO gimmicks or tricks...

USwest said...

Don't you wish we had a comment editing tool on this blog! I just found 4 spelling errors in my comments. Typing too fast. Hear that suggestion, all seeing, all knowing Google?

The Law Talking Guy said...

By "stewardship tiles" I meant that we get pledges (stewardship) by pointing to the sad physical state of the church. That's all.
