Thousands Attend Anti-tax Rally

by Aaron Claverie - May 17th, 2009 - The Californian

Bombastic radio talk show hosts "John and Ken" lit the fuse.

And thousands of Southern California residents provided the "boom," turning the normally laid-back setting of Tom's Farms, a pastoral roadside attraction/farmers market on the outskirts of Corona, into a raucous staging ground for an anti-tax rally on Saturday afternoon.

The rally, a companion piece to the anti-tax KFI AM 640 hosts' live broadcast, featured hundreds of colorful signs, "Don't Tread on Me" flags and life-size effigies of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger ripped to pieces by an industrial shredder.

Like George W. Bush before him, Arnold has abandoned his conservative base of support and become a full fledged liberal. Where is the man who became a Republican because he hated socialism? Arnold has been defeated by the socialists of the Democrat Party and has caved completely in order to be "popular".

Somehow I doubt that being figuratively shredded is the kind of popularity that Arnold was looking for. That act denotes a level of hatred that it is rather hard to recover from. I suspect that Arnold will find that his new friends on the left are never going to accept him, any more than they accepted George W. Bush. That leaves him with few who will care when his term limited period as Governor expires.

"Ahhll be baack!" is not likely to ever be true again.
