Brown's use of WMD to Promote his DWT or DWT Budget:

Posted By CotoBloggzz

Rancho Santa Margarita, CAGovernor Brown is using Weapons of Mass Disinformation (WMD) to promote his you can Deal With This (DWT), or you can Deal With That approach to solving California's budget crisis, while ignoring the Elephant in the Room - worse - while feeding the Elephant in the room.
The Governor is using a boneheaded either/or approach:  Either you deal with painful cuts to the vulnerable, or you agree to increase taxes.
Analogous to your butcher offering you a great deal:  Buy the cow at a low price, then he trims the prime rib, sirloin and the choice parts and throwing them all to the garbage can, while leaving all the fat in, then telling you, I made painful cuts, but what is left is good for you

The problem is that while he is promoting this largely imprudent approach, he is feeding the parasitic bureaucracies by creating yet another commission to oversee the CALPARS boondoggle, for example, but largely ignoring the fact that the fiscal tsunami at the local, state and national level is largely due to organized labor in the public sector - one of the stools in  California's Triple Threat: 1) Public Unions, 2) Lobbyists, and 3) Parasitic Bureaucracies.
While we keep asserting that Brown should dissolve and or merge 80% of the bureaucracies, he instead is increasing the size of government, while making real cuts to the real vulnerable - is this not an example of the use of WMD?
