The California dream is dead--has been for quite a number of years. Rampant environmentalism has decimated the economic engine that once was California, and rampant, unchecked illegal immigration has drained billions of dollars in tax money for many years. The result is the California we have today.

Isn't this fun?

Ridiculous. Get rid of the f*cking illegals and the constant nonstop drain that they are and we'll be out of debt and investing in AMERICANS.

And/or, get some more money.

California's TAXPAYER OWNED schools, colleges and universities feature thousands of excellent concert halls - most sport performance level concert pianos.

If these THOUSANDS of expensive publicly owned facilities were truly built for THE PUBLIC's OWN BENEFIT -(as they all claim tob e)-, EACH ONE would be in use all the time and kicking out a steady stream of charitable funding for their community.

But, noooooooooooooooooo........!

Because, all these incredibly expensive facilities ARE ONLY FOR the exclusive benefit of the school's Faculty and Staff - who, of course, are already being paid BILLIONS OF DOLLARS by the taxpayers.

Why can't they share the THE TAXPAYER's EXPENSIVE concert stage with qualified local musicians WHO ARE NOT already being paid billions of dollars by the Taxpayers?

You know, actually READ, UNDERSTAND and then FOLLOW the Taxpayer's Vital 501(c)(3) Laws, Rules, Articles and Bylaws......

If you want to see some wasted tax dollars, take a look at the offices in Sacramento. From the lowest beancounter up to the geovernator they have fine expensive furnishings and equipkment in each office. In a state office building you will see more wasted and unused equipment and furniture than you would ever see in the private sector. The top officials redecorate their offices after every election. The last state treasurer did it to the tone of over $150,000.00.

Yep, wasted Tax Dollars.

And, why do they "have to" keep buying all those new cars and computers and stuff?

So they can give the "old stuff" away to their cute & cuddly brand insider cronies.

Don't think so? Well, OK, but, how many "senator's sons" do you know?

Where did they get their cars and computers?
