And then there are county, city, school boards, and, of course, the federal part.

Well now I'm probably more informed about what's on the California ballot than in Ohio!

Talk about a mixed bag.

The initiative system is such a mess.

I really am still boggled by the fact that it's ok for people to put up 2 initiatives that mean, in essence:

65) Voting yes takes the money from bag deposits from the stores (which makes them really uninterested in continuing to support the practive).
67) Voting yes continues the rules on banning plastic bags

In effect, to preserve the bag law, you have to vote no on 65, and yes on 67.

This is entirely and intentionally confusing.

It's annoying bullcrap. Far worse than Eyman ever was.

Edit: I wrote this entire post before I got your pun, lol. I'm leaving it as a record of my denseness tho >< Mixed bag indeed!

Tim was a rank amateur to these guys. His bits were inherently selfish, but always relatively straightforward.

Here we have:
Make porn safer! (Destroy the porn industry, also make me personally the (paid) porn czar and make it impossible to remove me)
Help schools! (With no-bid contracts to bad contractors)
Make pot legal! (in a way that is arguably worse than no law, and which will make actual legalization or national legalization harder in CA)

~~

Maybe there's more money at stake, but weaselly dishonest ballot measures are a damn art form.
