Why an action hero makes a lousy governator...

From feministing: "California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger - making last minute cuts to the budget - eliminated all of the state funding for domestic violence shelters. That's right - all of it."

Because you know, getting rid of funding that directly impacts and helps the victims of domestic violence is a much reasonable thing to do than taxing rich people a little bit more to make up that small amount of money when your states is BILLIONS of dollars in the red. It's clearly much more important to keep your promises to your rich cronies than it is to help the poorest and most needy people in your state.

I've really lost what little respect I had for the governator. For any of my California friends who are so inclined you can click on Stop Family Violence's action alert to urge lawmakers to reinstate funding for the programs.

  • RIP Morticia a/k/a Ninja Cat :-(

    My little black cat died tonight. It was a sudden and surprising end to a great little cat. I'm doing ok, but I will definitely miss that…

  • Still alive!
