This week The Stu Pitt Award goes to ...

The State of California

Deservedly awarded to the stupid state for raising taxes in February (sales tax, car tax, state income tax) on the already overtaxed people of California, which will reduce consumer spending, reduce tax revenues to the state, add to California's 10% unemployment rate and make the worst recession in history even worse.

Congratulations, California, you earned the Stu Pitt award!
