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.”
…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.
