To understand 2014 California, you must realize that Parents don't buckle their kids into car seats because it is the law. They use car seats because they voted for the highest public empl pension schemers in American history........thus promising that their children would grow up to be Pension Tax Slaves to the massive number of Public Empl Unionistas.

while asia moves into the 21st century , the usa is still living in the 1960s, trying to fix socio economic problems and ,INEQUALITY, with more social schemes. moving money into nooks and crannies,and hoping someting will work ,in one of the fifty states, so it an be used as a
"MODEL",and wondering how much socalism it will take to bankrupt THE CAPITALIST way of life. or the next wall street slide. from bankrupt detroit bonds .to puerto rican bonds and the other 38 bankrupt entities.. where only the MEANS TESTED can get away with murder , or paying their bills ,let alone their states or countrys..while they tweet, email, and watch on "IMPORTED HIGH TECK EVERYTHING". so whos gonna win ?

.ONE GETS THE IMPRESSION THAT..WHILE IT HAS TAKEN PENNSYLVANIA ,50 years to go from a 1% sales tax to an 7% sales tax , it wont be long till it goes to 10%...most governments make more in taxes than business makes in "NET PROFIT"..THE AVERAGE BUSINESS MAKES 6% NET PROFIT. THE GOVERNMENTSSS own a piece of "EVERY BBUSINESS ENTITY,PERSON ,INCLUDING FIDO.. "FREEDOM ,its on craigslist,.. and bonds for proijects is a guarantee of a "FUTURE TAX HIKE". soon 95 % of the country will be on jerry springer or on food stamps..or both...
