      Like Gov Brown is not a egotistical bozo who would have the foresight to actually consider some good advice from people who build things and not just talk about them.
      Oh let’s say on things like his futile vanity and legacy projects like the Brown Streak train or the twin tunnel fantasies for example.
      But then only you and Brown can argue Cali’s education system is working well. In your case it feeds you, and in his it feeds his campaign coffers.

    First off I have to say something. Do any of you remember Dagwood Bumstead? Is he a dead-ringer for Dagwood for not? Nothing to do with the content of his answers. Just appearance and mannerisms. What do you think?

    I thought he had a few good points. But if you want education reform you have to reform the student’s parents and change their cultures. Good luck with that! You could send them all to private schools and feed them the latest technologies. But if their parents don’t give a damn about the value of education – it’s all a wasted effort.

    And the poverty problem is California is over the top. And getting worse. Nobody ever wants to tackle that one. I guess it’s too politically incorrect. Oh well. They wallow in your blight and crime. Whatever…. If you don’t care – neither do I.
