GOVENATOR STRIKES AGAIN!

Another example of a corrupt politician not looking out for people interest's. Hopefully him doing this will rally more people to the cause. Pretty sad.

Sounds crazy, but I stayed in a few of those parks last summer, they were awesome! I've been hearing for years about how underfunded the US parks system is, and talking to the rangers seemed to confirm it. Seems a little crazy that with all the wealth in California, the park system goes hungry.

Anyone think the Governator is actually bluffing, in an attempt to get more money for the parks? That would be a good thing, as long as it doesn't backfire on him. I hope it works out, as I plan on going there again sometime.

Funny thing was, the state parks were usually dirt cheap to camp in, something like $10 a night, but the private campgrounds charge upwards of $50 a night.

Cheap is good, but not if it means closing the parks.

I'll try not to make this rant too long!

The Governor is a corrupt idiot like most recent politicos. California is as BK as the entire country - living on debt and borrowed money.

Most knowledgeable people believe this is all a "bluff" to attack proposition 13 which limits the property taxes on residences as well as business properties - get more tax dollars to waste and put masses of people out of their houses - AND STILL NOT COVER THE COSTS OF INFRASTRUCTURE, ETC!!!! Because of decades of deterioration while supposedly dedicated moneys were spent on crap!

Anyone who believes that the parks in populated areas do not pay for themselves - at $10 per day use - is either stupid or a liar!!!! Go look at Bolsa Chica SP any day during the summer!!! - and most nice weekends!!!!!!!

Just try to enjoy the ride - while there are any left!!!
