Btw, you weren't really known in school for being a smart one eh?

You don't sound like a jock type either.

I guess you were one of the average guys with average or slightly below average intelligence.

you should just stick to what you know best. You know what I mean right? Good. Now, go on kid. Here's a nickel, go get yourself a soda.

California = Germany

Your state = Greece (most likely)

Like I said 19042 times already in this thread. California's budget problems are because of all the support and subsidizing they do for poorer states.
Federalism is the problem. Not California.
No it isn't. It is californians who are moving out because of the economy.

If you had a clue, as to what is going on along our southern border....legalizing and taxing marijuana makes all the sense in the world.....it has been another failed prohibition....

Marijuana will make it simply more accessible to kids. And what about people who are trying to get off smoking and are trying to resist the temptation? I doubt you would be helping them.

Have you ever been to Korea Town in Los Angeles, Ca? They don't have one of those in Germany.

I recommend that you take a moment to learn up on how much California cherishes its Korean community and retract your statement that California is Germany.

Illegal marijuana off the streets is more accessible to kids then legally sold marijuana.

Legalizing marijuana will take profits out of the hands of drug cartels. It might in fact make drug cartels go legitimately into business as theirs still money to be made.

Look at your alcohol companies... they're making billions!!!

WTH?

Obviously I am referencing the status of a state/federal unit that subsidizes another state/federal unit. Since California subsidizes other states, it is more like Germany than Greece.

I'm talking politics here and the interdependent, sometimes conjugal relationship between member states of a political union.

I was addressing these "allegations" that California is "bankrupt" because of illegals and dirty people taking up welfare mony from hard working white people.

Actually, the real picture paints a different picture. One in which California is subsidizing midwestern and southern states at the tune of $50 billion a year, while California's budget deficit is about $50 billion a year.

Its not even "Don't bite the hand that feeds you". Its like, people don't even know where the food came from.

People who move out of California have high hopes about their new environments because in California we...

1) Have the only school system in the world where the publics are considered more prestigious than most of the heavily funded privates. Only in California

2) At its peak in 2000, 1/6 of USAs exports were from Silicon Valley. Its nice to have exports that aren't made with cow dung.

3) Hollywood, although makes a lot of strange movies, does for many people, project the only positive image of America to the rest of the world.

4) A state where everyone is a minority, and yet people find happiness in having goals that supercede only being concerned 100% about their race.

5) A state where people can actually innovate, invent, and make society a better place.

Now, some of the people who move to your area, their main problem is that they are delusional in that they expect every state to have the potential of California. The sad truth is that, it is not the case, and if California did not subsidize other states so much, maybe he or she would not have had to move because of the lack of jobs stemming from California being bled to death from the outside.

Its because states like yours bled California for money. Everything else that happened, is a reflection of that initial action.

Over 20 years, other states bled California of over $300 billion in money that could have gone to fix roads, build schools, employ teachers, train policemen, clean parks, etc...

Those employed could have rebuilt their houses, improved their neighborhoods, etc...etc...

But no. Your state had to be greedy. Because thats how your state operates. Take as much as you can from everyone else. Real nice of you and your state.

"In fiscal year 2003, Californiansí tax payments to the federal treasury exceeded federal spending in the state by $50 billion, a record high."

Do you disagree with this statement? Do you dispute its factuality?

Or do you disagree with your own brain's ability to absorb it? If its the latter, then I understand. Not all of us are gifted in that way...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federal_taxation...

in 2007, California subsidized other states (federal treasury) in the amount of $55 billion. Another record high.

Public information available anywhere and anyone with a brain open to solving problems.

Only people who are American patriots will want to solve America's problems.

Time to ask yourself what you are and if you are in fact... a civilian patriot.
