Governor Schwarzenegger has to be commended for making a very wise, sound decision in restoring funding for battered women shelters. Without a shelter for a battered woman to go to, she could be killed or severely beaten. This is a very important point that Governor Schwarzenegger recognized. Most men are bigger than women. This is a reverse decision for Governor Schwarzeneger and this decision shows that the Governor has a flexible mind to do what is right. Well done ! Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger! You have saved the lives of many battered women. If a husband has plans to murder his wife, beware, the "Terminator will be Back."

PROP 26 is just as damaging as PROP 23. Prop 26 is a treacherous, Big Oil rip-off, which "passes the buck" from the oil corporation, clean-up fees to the public's taxes, who will pay the oil recycling fees and the materials hazards fees. If do not understand the ambiguities and the intrigues behind Prop 26, then, vote no. BP, Shell and Exxon Mobil are silent partners in Prop 26.

The California Jobs Initiative (CJI) is an oil corporation farce and fraud.There is no connection, whatsoever, between greenhouse gas emission reduction and the loss of jobs. This notion is an insult to the intelligence of the people of California. In fact, there is job growth in the clean, renewable energy industry. The only jobs created by the oil industry are clean-up jobs after oil spills and deep water, blow-outs and pump-handler jobs. CJI will make fantastic profits for the oil industry, increase air pollution, especially in communities around their refineries, and there will not be lower, gas prices. Koch Industries, Valero and Tesoro are super Enrons. Since when did the oil companies start to show any concern for the unemployed and their families and for small businesses?

SCHWARZENEGGER IS STILL BAD NEWS. It is against the law to physically harm another person, including wives. Schwarzenegger's government is not enforcing this law. The funding priority for battered women shelters (BWS) should be the highest, because human life is at risk, and because BWS's keep the good people in, and the criminals and the murderers out. During a recession with its higher unemployment, government funding for BWS's should be increased, not eliminated. The Governor's May Revise, with the backing of Big Oil (Chevron Corp. of San Ramon), is very dangerous for women and children, who are victims of domestic violence and it is sub-human. Obviously, the May Revise picks on the most vulnerable, and it endangers children. If a battered wife is murdered in front of a closed-down BWS, because of the May Revise, then, Schwarzenegger and his oil industry tyrants should be charged with first-degree murder and child endangerment, because that's the law. If the mother suffers, then the children suffer.

If 40% of the cost of gasoline is tax, then, why is there a budget crisis?

The oil corporations are taking us to the cleaners. California has the highest cost of gasoline in the nation, and they don't pay any oil extraction tax. It is the high cost of gasoline and oil that is causing businesses to leave California.

Chevron gouged $24 billions in excessive profits in 2008, as per www.tyrannyofoil.com. Schwarzenegger should put an excessive profits tax on these profits, instead of protecting the oil corporations from fair taxation, then, there would br sufficient public funds for all the vulnerable, people programs. Big business lost the fight to eliminate domestic violence funding, so now they are coming back with a vengeance.There is no funding provision for battered women shelters in the May Revise. Schwarzee picks on the most vulnerable, and not on corporate tax "deadbeats."
