California is already over 2 billion short on the budget this year and is long overdue for a serious financial wake-up call.

Hope all the other states are taking notes on "what not to do"... Projects like the "high speed" rail just dump gas on the fire.

Way to go spendthrift voters of California!

I told them as much when I called them... their response "we can modify the contract, it's in the contract you signed" or something to that effect. What they're doing is illegal IMO, but who can/will hold them accountable? Some days I wish I was a lawyer with the time and money.

My wife used her upgrade discount to surprise me with an iPhone4 on my birthday. I started using it and within 2 weeks ATT sent me an email stating that they had "upgraded" my account from my Unlimited data plan to their 2GB iPhone data plan and my bill went up by $15/mo. I'd cancel but I'm still on a contract and would get shafted with a termination fee... called att and complained but it was a waste of time, they've got me on the hook and they know it. F-U AT&T!!!

How many surrealists does it take to screw in a lightbulb? One to hold the giraffe and one to fill the bathtub with brightly colored power tools.
