      i went to climate change.org and read this and now i'm really confused. that's real change, i mean not a token gesture at all -- coming from ahnold?! and this was signed in june which was way before the special elections made him run to the left. the guy is hard to figure out. shit, though, i mean, gray davis never did it. between this and the solar rebates ($10,000 vs. only $2k from the feds) -- can i possibly vote for a republican???
      i know every other policy has been totally abhorrant (education cuts!) to me, but at the end of the day the issue i care about most is the environment, and this is real leadership on that issue. i think i would take a lot of shit from a politician for a clean environment...

        •  yes, i was aware of the solar initiative (none)
          and a while back when arnold defied the religious freaks and did that stem cell initiative (i think the dollar amount was close to the solar program?) i warmed up to him slightly until the special election bullshit. but now i'm really fucking confused on if i should vote for him. i'm leaning towards yes because of how really fucking revolutionary these actions are -- i'd be a hypocrite not to support a politician -- any politician -- who actually stepped up and delivered a policy to get us to 80% below 1990 levels by 2050, right?

        I actually think if Arnold had a few terms of being in a state senate he would have been a hell of a governor.  As it is, his lack of government experience shows pretty bad.  Then again, I think if he'd had that experience he might have switched sides and been a conservative democrat, or at least toned down to a less conservative republican.

        Personally I'd rather have Arnold up there, than a full blood neo-con.  I don't agree with Arnolds views or agenda, but he can be dealt with as a republican.  Unlike Bush and his Neo-con handlers who should simply be locked up for crimes against humanity.
