Happy Now, California?

Movie productions, Hummer dealerships, and smoking bans in bars have all started to crop up in Albuquerque recently. That can only mean one thing. The Governator is on a rampage and Californians are fleeing to New Mexico. (Although they probably are all buying houses in Placitas. Albuquerque is where the plebes live.)

Schwarzenegger did not include any new taxes in his budget plan Friday, but in addition to the cuts, he requested higher state park fees and tuition increases of as much as 40 percent for college students.

...The biggest hits are aimed at the state's Medi-Cal program, which would lose close to $900 million next year under the governor's proposal. The state's program to bring welfare recipients into the work force is also targeted in his plan with a $800 million cut.

I just hope the Frontier doesn't start making lo-cal, lo-carb breakfast burritos.

Remember, new Californian migrants, green chilies and green bell peppers are two different things.
