Turns out, the FEDS own most of the land in the state.......... per the State Constitution.

USA, you do realize this character wasn't present during this debate?

USA the state constitution gave very small parcels of land to the FEDs if you would have read through it.

Frequently Asked Questions on Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS;CoV)
9 May 2014
What is Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS)?
Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) is a viral respiratory disease caused by a novel coronavirus (MERS;CoV) that was first identified in Saudi Arabia in 2012. Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that can cause diseases ranging from the common cold to Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS).
Where is MERS occurring?
The following countries have reported cases of MERS: Jordan, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Yemen (Middle East); France, Germany, Greece, Italy, and the United Kingdom (UK)(Europe); Tunisia and Egypt (Africa); Malaysia and the Philippines (Asia); and the United States of America (Americas).
The virus appears to be circulating widely throughout the Arabian Peninsula. All recent cases that have been reported outside the Middle East first developed infection in the Middle East; then the cases were exported outside the region. These travel related cases do not appear to have infected others in their countries. In 2013 cases exported to France and the UK led to limited human to human transmission.

What are the symptoms of MERS?
A typical case of MERS consists of fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Pneumonia is a common finding on examination. Gastrointestinal symptoms, including diarrhoea, have also been reported. Severe illness can cause respiratory failure that requires mechanical ventilation and support in an intensive care unit. Some patients have had organ failure, especially of the kidneys, or septic shock. Approximately 27% of patients with MERS have died. The virus appears to cause more severe disease in people with weakened immune systems, older people, and those with such chronic diseases as diabetes, cancer, and chronic lung disease.
Can a person be infected with the MERS virus and not be ill?
Yes. In some people, infection has not appeared to have caused symptoms. Such persons have been found because they were tested for MERS CoV during follow up studies of contacts of people with MERS infection.
How do people get MERS?
It is not yet understood exactly how people become infected with MERSCoV. In some cases, the virus appears to pass from an infected person to another person in close contact. This has been seen among family members, patients, and health care workers. Recently, there have been an increased number of reports of health care associated infections. In some communities, people have become ill but no potential source of infection has been found. It is possible that these persons were infected by exposure to an animal or perhaps another source or person.
Is MERS contagious?
Yes, but apparently only to a limited extent. The virus does not seem to pass easily from person to person unless there is close contact, such as occurs when providing unprotected care to a patient. There have been clusters of cases in health care facilities, where human to human transmission appears to be more efficient, especially when infection prevention and control practices are inadequate. Thus far, no sustained community transmission has been documented.
What is the source of the MERS virus—bats, camels, domestic animals?
The full picture on the source is not yet clear. Strains of MERSCoV that match human strains have been isolated from camels in Egypt, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia. These and other studies have found MERSCoV antibodies in camels across Africa and the Middle East. Human and camel genetic sequence data demonstrate a close link between the virus found in camels and that found in people. It is possible that other reservoirs exist. However, other animals, including goats, cows, sheep, water buffalo, swine, and wild birds, have been tested for antibodies to MERSCoV, but so far none have been found in these animals. These studies combined support the premise that camels are a likely source of infection in humans.

You're an idiot to hang your hat on a dumb statistic like that.

Easy answer to all but sheep like you. Liberals are self thinkers....Baggers and Righties are not. They depend on being fed BS on a daily basis. They are also not generally very bright as most non thinkers are. Which is also a proven fact that Fox viewers are the worst informed viewers there are. The ones capable of reaching their own conclusions and not in need for programming every day don't gather around that same watering hole like you Wildebeest do every day...See how easy that was?

You left out words in my post that distorted it. I posted we're "getting close" to 20 trillion.
The liberal propagandists do the same. You're following a bad example.
You also believe propagandists - the bullhorn of proven liars - who hold power over you.
Last year, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) projected Obamacare to increase the long-term federal deficit by $6.2 trillion.
It's worse than you think. I posted this a few days ago.

Fed Chair:‘Deficits Will Rise to Unsustainable Levels’

( CNSNews.com )- Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen, referencing the Congressional Budget Office's long-term budget projections, told the Joint Economic Committee of Congress today that under current policies the federal government’s deficits “will rise to unsustainable levels.”

In the 10-year budget projections it released in April, the CBO estimated that the federal government will run $7.618 trillion in deficits from 2015 through 2024. At the same time, the CBO projected that the federal government’s debt held by the public would rise from $11.983 trillion at the end of fiscal 2013 to $20.947 trillion by the end of 2024.

The debt held by the public is the part of the U.S. government debt that is not held by the federal government itself. It primarily consists of marketable Treasury securities, including bills, notes and bonds. It does not include what the government calls “intragovernmental debt," which is the money the Treasury has borrowed out of the Social Security Trust Fund and other government trust funds to pay current expenses.

The total debt of the federal government at the end of fiscal 2013--including both the debt held by the public and the intragovernmental debt--was $16.719 trillion. The CBO estimates that by 2024, the total debt of the federal government will be $27.159 trillion—of which $20.947 trillion will be debt held by the public.

If that projection holds up, the federal debt held by the public in 2024 would be more than four times the $5.035 trillion federal debt held by the public at the end of 2007.
