Here’s what we had to say about Jerry Brown’s new budget.

“It is difficult for me to believe that 40 percent of all state employees must be equipped with taxpayer-funded cell phones,”

And to be honest, we couldn’t agree more. We had some callers call-in and debate the ultra-conservative cuts that Democratic governor Jerry Brown proposed in his recent budget proposal.  The $20 million dollars that this will save is a great start to fixing the current California deficit of over $25 billion. What do you think- do the state workers of California deserve the cuts? Here’s the story as reported by the San Luis Obispo Tribune.

Here’s our Dumbass of the Day segment about the colonoscopy doctors at St. Charles Hospital.

Most people have a general trust in their doctors. We hope they know what they’re doing, and that all tools and instruments are up to par.  Well according to KTVZ in Oregon, it looks like the folks at St. Charles Hospital in Bend, Oregon might not be the most competent.

Patients were reporting getting sick after receiving colonoscopies from the hospital.  What from? Apparently “final disinfecting steps” were skipped when cleaning the colonoscopy machines.  This means the wands that are shoved up there were clean, but the water they shot up was not! Because of this, one woman has to undergo several rounds of STD testing and is suing for $270,000 in emotional and medical expenses.  Ya know, I think she might just win it. So moral of the story, if you’re looking to get your backside cleaned out, you may want to avoid bending over in Bend, Oregon.

This got us thinking about the worst way that you’ve ever been wronged by a doctor. Visit us on Facebook and let us know!
