From the prepared version of Arnold Schwarzenegger's state of the state address:
"I believe that together not only can we lead California into the future...we can show the nation and the world how to get there. We can do this because we have the economic strength, the population, the technological force of a nation-state. We are the modern equivalent of the ancient city states of Athens and Sparta. California has the ideas of Athens and the power of Sparta... One year ago I unveiled the 200 billion dollar plan that prepared California for the next ten years. We are a big state and we have big needs. And we made a big down payment. But the job is not finished..."
Memo to Arnie: this is not San Marcos. Sit down, let the painkillers wear off.
Immigration matters underlie much of what he discussed, yet there is not a single mention of the word "immig*". And, our "big needs" total around $43 billion.
