Drugs, Govt Corruption, Public Sector Unions’s Advantage on CA November Ballot Initiatives: Gadfly Radio

Tuesday, June 26,  Stephen Downing, Retired Deputy Chief of Police, and 20 Year Vet with L.A.P.D., and an active voice with  LEAP, joins Martha Montelongo, with Ben Boychuk, Associate Editor with City Journal.

Tune in LIVE at 10:00 a.m. PDT on CRNtalk.com or on USTREAM TV’s CRNStudioLive!”

High Speed Rail, Pubic Sector Unfunded Pension Liabilities, and Public Education are all huge costs with lots of waste, fraud and abuse.   How does our policy of drugs compare to these other issues?  Is it anywhere near as important?

What are the costs and benefits of our current policies?   Can we do better?

Governor Brown’s Pro-tax initiative, submitted later, than other initiatives that have not yet been verified, is verified for the ballot, and  California Forward‘s reform initiative is yet to be officially approved, pending signature verifications and certification.   Coincidence?    The deadline for all initiatives to go on the November General Election ballot is June 28th.  It looks very suspicious.
