Shocker: Californian green job tax ‘didn’t work.’ Unless ‘impact crater’ counts.

Raise your hand, everybody who’s surprised: “Three years after California voters passed a ballot measure to raise taxes on corporations and generate clean-energy jobs by funding energy-efficiency projects in schools, barely one-tenth of the promised jobs have been created, and the state has no comprehensive list to show how much work has been done or how much energy has been saved.”

[lowering hand]

What? I was surprised. I would have personally bet that California wouldn’t manage to get past one-twentieth.  To get a whole one-tenth must have involved people with whips. Or possibly cattle prods.


…Says it all, really.

PS: By all means, read the whole thing… but fair warning.  The deeper you go down this particular rabbit hole, the worse it gets in terms of disassociation from reality. By the time you reach the bottom, tentacles are going to be coming out of the wall.

    Moe, have no fear. We got the High Speed Rail coming up. Jerry Brown is determined to spend that initial Federal matching fund come hell or high water to build a rail between a women’s prison and the chinese rail worker’s cemetery (you think I’m making up the terminal point of this rail line, but I’m not). It’s literally from nowhere to nowhere. Relieving the traffic congestion isn’t the point of the exercise, it’s spending it on Unionized project.

    But I’m quite sure all the important palms got greased.

    … but impact craters are natural water detention ponds! Just look at chicxulub!
