Dood, I dunno about you, but me and my friends have had race wars with mexicans in high school. But now that I am grown up, the thing is, they are the reason my big macs cost 2.99 and the few factories left in LA can compete with China or Vietnam. And guess what, some are even breaking into more white collar type of jobs after getting an education, thank goodness. Capitalism isn't preventing outsourcing, but with a tax breaks for outsourcing gotten rid of, more factories in California will benefit the lower class and middle class capitalists the most. That economic picture doesn't change because of whats going on in middle america's "fear".

Make no mistake, there is a threshold when an economy becomes too "blue collar". The economies of LA and SF are so different, but LA has a higher upside than SF on the whole, once smart policy makers have more say and can cut through LA City Council BULL.

<quoted text>Exactly. I saw a special on public television about the pension crisis and one guy on the show said that the government pensions are underfuned by about 55 percent. So it does make sense to cut the pensions in half. If CalPERS only has 45 percent saved to give to state retirees, them cut the pensions down to about what CalPERS actually has. One thing they said is that CalPERS promised it could make an 8 percent profit on their investments, and yet it actually has been making more like 1.5 percent on its investments. So it is not going to be able to keep those big pension promises, which means either cut the pensions back to something reasonable, or the states will raise sales taxes, property taxes and state income taxes.
Did you know that a lot of those government retirees also get SS and Medicare on top of the big pensions?
Yeah, I believe in adjusting pensions for yearly CALPers budgets too. It makes no sense to take out loans and issue municipal bonds just to pay pensions. Its just common sense. I wonder what organization wil be able to put momentum together for that...

Brilliant. Terrifying, but brilliant assessment of our current malaise. Love the apt Jim Jones reference. Obama has mastered the Jones personna.

<quoted text>OMG. A school sup gets a $300,000 pension. Wow. This is where the money goes when they take out bonds for the schools or give some of states' lottery money to the schools or like in CA they just created a new millionaires tax and they say it will go to the schools. But, no matter how much money they get for the schools, it never goes to the kids, it actually goes for the big pensions for the administrative jobs. That's how they fund those outrageous pensions. And then they always say the schools are broke and they still feed the kids junk food they were feeding them back 30 years ago.
Administrative jobs are hard work using brain skills the average joe on the street could never comprehend. They deserve every penny and then some!

Last time i was in California on I-5, I pulled into a service station...and smelled urine in the fuel isles...

Turns out, the immigrant workers were urinating in the window washer bens, or buckets...where normally soap and water are, so you can wash your windshield...

But instead the immigrant drivers were urinating in them...

It just seemed so 3rd world to me...

Either they didn' know better, or were doing it just to be spiteful or were just to lazy to walk inside to the restroom...

Texas actually has its fiscal house in order. They even still subsidize other red states to a small degree. California subsidizes other red states too much.

No they don't.

But the cuts at the top should be 50%. At the bottom, probably more like 20-30%.

Time to think of others, and not just yourself son. This is what the Republic of California wants you to do son.

The plan is for those living more Westernly, to exchange or move out, to make room for those who had previously moved away and had to return to work in the city, living on the freeway. Also, those who are in flooded prone or fire prone areas are having to move back in. The migration was planned. Price every one out. Lower prices in places that people need to be moved too.
