Not bad. He has not done anything really bad or really good.

Would it really be so bad if he hadn't? Governments do too much as it is.

I think he is preoccupied with global warming and reducing emissions of greenhouse gases. The AG's office has taken a position under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) that any increase in greenhouse gas emissions associated with a new or modified project would result in a significant impact and require all feasible mitigation. In the case of one Bat Area refinery that proposed an expansion project, it looks like they will be buying a lot of new alternative energy buses for the local transportation agencies. This is all being driven by AB32 which identifies greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction targets; similar to the Kyoto Protocol that was never ratified by the US Senate. AB32 requires an 11% reduction in GHG emissions by 2010, 20% reduction by 2020 and 80% reduction by 2050.

There are two ways to meet the near term reduction targets; deport all illegal aliens or reduce YOUR emissions of GHGs. Meeting the long term goal would require nothing short of abandoning all carbon energy sources. AB32 is all about controlling you and changing your way of life. Smells a bit like socialism.

So, this is what Jerry Brown has been up to...

That's my take. An elected government official that does little (either good or bad) is far better than a liberal crusader hell-bent on a campaign to "do something". I'd much rather ol' Jerry just concentrate on the potheads and leave guns alone for his entire 4 years. It probably won't happen, but if ya gotta dream...dream big.

Government functions best, when it functions least.

I support Jerry Brown (except for global warming PR nonsense).

Seems his demotion of FD to BoF has freed up funds for fighting real crime - statewide DNA lab and escalation of violent felon apprehension (i.e those who slip btwn gaps in city/county enforcement) have funding because of this.

I wouldn't be surprised at further gradual reallocations.

Frankly if you look at his prior administration of Oakland he was generally more 'conservative' + pro-biz + pro-homeowner + pro-rights than, say, a Giuliani or a Romney. He had a helluva hard time with a hard-Left urban city council making any progress.

I didn't say that.

I did say, "it's not bad where he is".

The comparison was between potheads and law-abiding gun owners.
