Jerry Brown convinced Californians to raise taxes on themselves, approving Proposition 30, supposedly to help the school kids. Brown is earmarking part of it for union pay hikes as payback for labor support in getting Prop. 30 passed.
California officials have been ramping up pay and benefit packages for public employees creating a level of enrichment that is almost hard to believe.
California public employees receive far more in pay and retirement compensation than those in other states. Public employees are walking away from the job at age 50 with initial six-figure payouts and pensions that could pay them millions over their lifetimes.
That's the problem in California. A "popular" Jerry Brown spooning with the unions.
Jerry Brown must be todays topic on faux :-)

Actually, what I really think is people who can't help themselves out of their own circumstances - be it drug addiction, lack of education or a victim in the vicious cycle of poverty, no amount of money can make them do what only they themselves can do to change their own circumstances.

Helping the poor is one thing. Providing a safety net is one thing.

But simply creating dependency on the backs of others is not helping anyone.

The economic face of California:

Disproportionate number of illegals. Decades of fiscal irresponsibility by a Democratic controlled legislature. State workers no longer working 40 hour weeks. Borrowing $1.7 million per hour. Credit rating plummeting to bottom of 50 states. Lenders rethinking lending any more money to the Golden State. Businesses moving to other states.

Sad but true. Is this the way we want the nation to go too? California is Democrat leadership at its finest. Or sleaziest. Whichever.

Jerry Brown is in the midst of a political meltdown and doesn't know if he's coming or going. California is the model of what the nation should avoid at all costs.
Miss Carol, Givinor Moonbeam has always been in meltdown. The 'fruits and nuts'& flakes, elected one of their own and were willing to let 'other peoples money' pay for it.

How about not taxing corporate foreign profits until the money is brought back into the US.
Costing us tax money & giving a break for foreign investment.
How about oil subsidies.
How about the investment income loophole.
Corporate foreign profits are taxed in the country in which they are earned, just as we tax foreign corporations for profits that they earn here. The problem is that US corporate tax rates are the highest in the world.

Name one specific oil subsidy not available to other businesses.

If you mean lower rates for dividends and capital gains, go ahead, raise the rates, and crash the stock market.

How about personal loopholes, such as home mortgage interest deduction (a subsidy to the real estate industry), state and local tax deductions (a subsidy to high tax states), or charitable deductions (a subsidy to religion)?

<quoted text>So your saying that you lied about about Pennsylvania?
I can google Temecula John. It was a crossroads near a massive military installation that became a decent sized city through incorporation, Florida is full of PUD's although none are near the likes of a Camp Pendelton.
I don't really give a sht where you live__I don't like that you've been dishonest for over four years though.
Camp Pendleton is on the other side of the coastal range and there is no direct access from Temecula. The Temecula economy has very little relation to Camp Pendleton. Kind of like traveling from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon to the North Rim, but not as far.

Google can't tell you everything.

President Johnson was a favorite
for driving the republicans out of office.
President Obama may do the same.
President Obama has an approval rating of 57%
Republican House approval is 7%
After LBJ's massive victory, Republicans won five of the next six Presidential elections.

Obama's War on the Economy will be as damaging as LBJ's Vietnam War.

Development of type II diabetes results from a combination of lifestyle and genetic factors.

Really, find a freeway, troll.

"Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes has a stronger link to family history and lineage than type 1, although it too depends on environmental factors. Studies of twins have shown that genetics play a very strong role in the development of type 2 diabetes. Lifestyle also influences the development of type 2 diabetes. Obesity tends to run in families, and families tend to have similar eating and exercise habits."
