Poor, poor, poor...

Poor California...poor in more ways than one. And every day we see evidence of how the legislators led us down the primrose path. A new headline of horror every day. Forget the governors, it is the legislators who are at fault. Not one is exempt from guilt. If they were innocent, we would have heard from them day after day, week after week. We didn't.

Turning aside protests by students, the University of California Board of Regents approved a 32% increase in student fees. That amounted to $2,500 per student.

"I hate to say it, but if you have no choice, you have no choice," UC President Mark G. Yudof told reporters before the vote. The students, he said, should protest state lawmakers who have cut education funding.

I'm sure they would love to go to Sacramento to protest, but most can't afford to. I'm with the students. They should demonstrate at every campus. Wherever an overpaid president sits in a comfortable office, there should be a protest. Sit in his office. Make him buy you dinner, a pizza at least. Do you know how much these people are paid? University presidents make over $400k a year. The President of the USA makes just $400k a year. (Yes, he does have a nice plane...but I think he works harder)
