Always Vote NO 

The Chron has an article about an unanticipated consequence of the Stem Cell Initiative. It turns out that all those Billions and Billions of dollars California is sure to reap as a result of priming the Stem Cell Research Pump with the $3,000,000,000.00 from the initiative may not be available because of details in the Federal Tax Code. This is yet more proof that Hank's Initiative Voting Algorithm is the only proper way to decide how to vote.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Hank's Initiative Voting Algorithm, it can be easily stated as Always Vote NO. Even good ideas like funding Stem Cell research have subtleties that aren't adequately addressed by the Petition then Vote way that initiatives work. If funding Stem Cell research is a good idea (and it is) the Legislature should do its job and properly research all the details and write a law that ensures the desired outcome. I'm really tired of having supposed good ideas turn out to be crap once they are already carved in stone.
