Wellllll, you do not consider the RED states to be part of the U.S.! I can think of a dozen states were I would live but Hawaii, California, Oregon, Washington are just a few which I will not live in. Not because they are ugly, but because their state governments are ugly!<quoted text>
You insanity once more surfaces. You compare the Nile's waters and the "dispute" between Ethiopia and Egypt with the Florida - Georgia water diversion and contamination? You keep referring to Chicago, one of the 5 largest cities in the US, to "Shitcago" (Rogue tm reg'd) mainly because Obama comes from that city and Emmanuel its mayor. Keep it up, Rogue, and try to remember that Chicago, like Detroit, oh, and the state of California which you constantly take pot shots at, are part and parcel of the United States,(15%+ of its population) which you deem to be the "bestest" "powerfulest" "richest" country in the world. You mean to say there are exceptions within the 50 states?
California has a surplus and they want to spend it right NOW. But this surplus looks like a flux caused by the current tax laws and by the end of this year they will be back in the red. Instead of blowing their temporary budget surplus they should pay down their debt. But being Libtards they will not do that and then some day they will ask the federal government to bail them out. But that is MY money for Federal expenses and not meant to bail out a state who does not use sound judgement!
California leaders to deliver on-time state budget

(Reuters)- In another sign of improved fiscal health, California will not only approve its first budget surplus in years but also is expected to have it passed on time for the third year in a row.
Democrats who control California's legislature are seeking more spending in the state budget plans than Governor Jerry Brown wants, but differences are small and they are ready to strike a budget deal well before the July 1 start of the new fiscal year.
The legislature's deadline for approving a budget is June 15 and Brown is keen to sign one into law before the new fiscal year beings. If he does it will mark the third consecutive year California - the ninth-largest economy in the world - puts a budget in place on schedule following a decade filled with long and often bitter impasses in its statehouse over how to balance its deficit-prone books.
