It is ludicrous to for the Government to think they are going to have any impact on the 20 Billion + deficit by cutting 70 million in state park funding. 70 million is a very small % of 20 billion but closing state parks will get peoples emotions going.

imo this is a media ploy just as cutting emergency services was in the campaign adds for the special election tax propositions. Government needs to cut the pork, services to illegals, etc., where the real money's at, but refuses to go there instead feeding on what it knows the media will latch onto and have an emotional reaction from citizens.

State parks. What better point to hit than people's recreation and fun time.

What amazes me is that most Californians know that the cost related to illegals is a huge and cant do a dam thing about it. Threatening to close areas that bring in tourist dollars is just stupid. If I were planning a trip there and read this I make other arrangements. You folks need change you can count on. Not believe in.

There was a post in here that put a sum to what your tax dollars go to in regards to illegals.

Seams that no matter what party runs Cali you citizens get burned. The same is true for us here in AZ. We have our problems but we did pas a vote that has held so far on verification.

If Cali started drilling more offshore some problems would be cured. Not all but some.

I see Pismo is on that list. Wonderful.

Total smucks. Pissing the people gets you the wrong kind of attention I would think.

It was said on the news this morning that a few state parks were going to be FREE admission for a few weeks this summer. First they have no money to operate them and are going to shut them down then the next day they are free ! These people are good!

We got reservations MONTHS ago for a camping trip, because the parks all book up so fast. Most of them are already paid for in advance...
