This week, California’s Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger proposed eliminating cash assistance for the poorest families. The proposal to end the program, called CalWORKs, was a shock to legislators and just about everyone else.
If the proposal goes through, California would be the only state to reject Temporary Assistance to Needy Families block grants, a federal program. The program pays states as long as they put limitations on job requirements of recipients.
Assemblyman Jim Beall, D-San Jose, said the draconian measure would result in “a lot of little kids begging on the streets.”
Even Maria is shocked!

comrades amigos hosers mes amis meine Freunde i miei amici mijn vrienden kids! We’ve been exploring what 2010 will look like in the former U.S. of A. after the civil war predicted by Igor Panarin. We’ve covered The Texas Republic and Russian Alaska, the Central North American Republic, and Atlantic America. That, sadly, brings us to the end of our journey, as we consider what it will be like in The Californian Republic (TCR) as it becomes part of China and the new Japanese Hawaii.

Hey! I bet that, an hour later, you want to discriminate against another minority group!!
