California 'net worth' plunges to minus-$127 Billion, while Texas boasts nearly $10 Billion budget surplus!
.

[link to blogs.sacbee.com]

Were California's state government a business, it would be a
candidate for insolvency with a negative net worth of $127.2
billion, according to an annual financial report issued by
State Auditor Elaine Howle and the Bureau of State Audits.


[link to www.thedailybeast.com]

Surpluses are showing up in places you’d expect. North Dakota,
currently enjoying an energy and agricultural boom, is
projecting a $1.6 billion surplus over its two-year budgeting
cycle. Texas, another resource-rich state, foresees an $8.8
billion surplus over its current two-year budget cycle.

This is Bob Badeer (a trader at Enron's West Power desk in Portland, CA, where all these tapes were recorded) and Kevin McGowan (in Enron's central office in Houston, TX, as he mentions in the transcript):

KEVIN: So,
BOB: (laughing)
KEVIN: So the rumor’s true? They’re fuckin’ takin’ all the money back from you guys? All those money you guys stole from those poor grandmothers in California?
BOB: Yeah, grandma Millie, man. But she’s the one who couldn’t figure out how to fuckin’ vote on the butterfly ballot.
KEVIN: Yeah, now she wants her fuckin’ money back for all the power you’ve charged right up – jammed right up her ass for fuckin’ 250 dollars a megawatt hour.

California would have billions in surplus if they repatriated all the money stolen by the municiple workers unions' pension funds.


91 cents of every dollar paid in CA taxes goes to dead people's families and/or thieves who are till milking their contracts.

We could be doing a lot better here....just need to expand a program...

[link to www.thelundreport.org]

According to a report published by The Marijuana Policy Project last fall tracking the financial details of medical marijuana programs in all states that have them, Oregon's program has brought in as much as $3.3 million per biennium since the program was adopted. Since fees increased last fall, the revenue from the program has more than doubled: according to Vidoloff, between October 2011 and June of
this year, the state has made more than $7.5 million from medical marijuana card fees.

Texas steals your tax dollars from the federal govt. It gets back $1.47 on every tax dollar it pays in and then it fails to programs that money was meant to be spent on. Education and healthcare are its two favorite targets. The state owes local school district millions. That's why obama wouldn't give dicky ricky any funds to fight wildfires, instead giving the money directly to the local gov'ts. He knew if he gave them to the state's top conman, fire departments would get any money.

However, the state doesn't have a problem pissing away money to support pricky perry's lavish lifestyle and through buckets of money at his corporate owners.

With the dea hell bent on violating our safe access law nd shutting own almost all walk in clinics with delivery to soon follow our federal govt only empowers the Mexican drug cartels to get rich while they stop the sick and dying from getting meds, also many marines use it for PTSD and has stopped many of my jarhead buddies from suicide which is at over 1 per day, more then the casualties during the war

This entire country would see no more school cuts by to drug cartels and huge tax profits as the 200,000,000 2 years ago Colorado pulled in on taxes when it wasn't legal

Texas has plenty of water.

Meanwhile, the enviro-cockbags in California has agriculture
dying in the fields and low-flow toilets that won't flush,
even though you have the whole fucking Pacific Ocean from
which you could derive fresh water from desalination.


High taxes, high crime, high govt intrusion -- WTF??!
