This is an open letter to Gov. Jerry Brown: Well, governor, hang on to your hat for what I am about to tell you. You asked for and received a tax increase. You shifted the cost of incarceration from the state to county responsibility — a lot of money is saved by doing so. The legislature wants to spend all this money like a kid in a candy store. And now you shove the twin tunnels down our throat and the cost of high-speed rail misrepresented.

It’s time to put state government back in the control of taxpaying citizens. Let them decide without interference from federal judges.

Water for Southern California and the large corporate farmers certainly has more political backing in Southern California than there is in the Central Valley. Why are the politicians bullying the voters and spending tax money without voters’ consent?

Mayor Johnson, with the new Kings arena, is another sign of bullying. Johnson saying the people have no right to object to millions of dollars in new taxes — using parking fees that they don’t have a right to, that taxpayers pay — is wrong

Gov. Brown and Mayor Johnson, stop being bullies and using the legal system to circumvent the taxpayers of California.
