Schwarzenegger may close state parks

It never ends when you put ideologues in charge of things, does it?

After California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger announced he wanted to abolish welfare to ease the budget deficit - even while failing to rein in handouts to the prison industry or huge salaries for his cronies - the Terminator realized he was on a roll. (Ending welfare would not only make California the only U.S. state with no welfare program. It would also make it the only place in any First World country without such a safety net.)

Now - emboldened by being able to get away with that - Schwarzenegger now wants to close 80% of California state parks.

Recall election, anyone? I mean, the GOP had Gray Davis recalled for much less.
