I'm going to have to move

Really, Arnold Schwarzenegger? You don't think that this is the worst idea in the history of EVER? Cutting all state funding for domestic violence? On top of all the education cuts?

You have children. Don't you want them to have a good education? Oh wait, they probably don't go to a public school. And if they do, it's certainly not going to be in an area where the education cuts have caused the layoffs of 600 teachers. IN ONE AREA. What the hell are you thinking? California already has one of the worst education systems in the country. So naturally, giving less money to education is real wise choice.

Also, you have DAUGHTERS. As much as you don't even want to imagine them being in a situation where they would need a shelter for battered women, wouldn't you want everything possible available to them? The women who find themselves in need of those shelters are all someone's daughter. And cutting funding, and possibly causing a lot of shelters to close, will give I-don't-even-know-how-many women no place to turn. And then they will find themselves trapped in abusive relationships. So I think that you're no better than the men that are hitting these women. And maybe that's a bit harsh, but this really pisses me off.
