Yesterday here in California voters soundly rejected the five ballot propositions that would have affected the state budget:

Prop 1F wasn't directly about the budget, but would delay legislators' salaries until the budget was passed if it exceeded the standard deadline. Of course that one passed handily.

Personaly I was pissed that the State put these measures on the ballot in the first place, in essence asking the voters to do the legislature's work. My answer to them (by rejecting all of the props) is: "Fuck you; go back to work and do your job!" I have my own job; I don't need to do the government's work, too.
