"Balance the state budget at the sacrifice of Education, Basic Emergency Services and Infrastructure.

All so you can say, look at me.

In the meantime, the State is falling apart. Literally."



Hahahahaha, this is hilarious. Either Marxist deficits, or deficient gov't.

Meanwhile, the yearly deficit, which was $16 billion in 2012, is gone.

And what % of state GDP is $16B? 0.8%. ZERO POINT EIGHT.

Bear in mind also the Red State Socialism factor - CA gets back .78 on the dollar of federal taxes.The rest goes to support the failed, impoverished, conservative Red States. If we didn't have that, we could lower taxes.

CA has the HIGHEST STATE TAX REVENUE in the Nation
http://www.usgovernmentrevenue.com/state_tax_gdp_population

>Ca has the hightest population, so OF COURSE it has the highest tax revenue. It also has to provide the most services!

California tumbled two more spots, to 49th in the nation in per-pupil spending, in Education Week’s latest annual Quality Counts report, released last week.

>The Republican dream! THEY send their kids to private schools, so do everything they can to restrict public school spending, particularly local bond issues.

>School spending is controlled locally, NOT by the state, but let's blame them anyway!

California Ranked 45th in Unemployment at 8.7%

KEN M:

Your personal "Opinions" above do nothing to counter the facts that I posted.


School spending is controlled locally, NOT by the state, but let's blame them anyway!

Absolutely WRONG!

The CA DEPT OF EDU plays a vital role in all funding for schools in the state.

"State funding accounted for more than six out of every 10 dollars (60.2 percent) received by schools statewide. "
http://www.cbp.org/pdfs/2009/090202_SFF_HowSchoolsGetTheirMoney.pdf‎;

And

http://www.ocregister.com/articles/state-267560-funding-money.html







So I say, repeal the veterans money. Because it is No difference. None.

I guess the servicepeople who are not being converted into amputee users of the VA, because we are no longer fighting in Iraq make no difference, either. None, Nada, Zip.

The new nationwide projects to convert unused space in VA's to housing for homeless vets should be stopped, immediately.


The above post KEN M are the ONLY reason I voted for Obama, twice. The only reasons.

 Right, The Chief is not a winger…. And who said anything about your personally held belief in one party or another. You say they are all thieves…. Prove it!!, Here's another idea… get in there and clean the bad ones out… or are you one of those complainers who just likes complaining more than doing anything about a solution to the complaint?

Lets just get rid of the government and start anew…. Just because a small portion of the population isn't satisfied in the results of this government….

If this worked…. wouldn't slavery have been done away with long before it was? After all, there were plenty of people who were would have wanted redress for the government of the US, as hodgepodge as this republic was fused together.

The Chief seems to me to be interested in getting rid of the bath water (we'll call the thieves) along with a baby (we'll call democracy)…..

No atal dude.

Get rid of the PIGs known as Lobbyists, limit individuals in Congress to two terms only, just like the Pres, pay them a dollar a day and allow NO SPECIAL INTEREST funding what so ever throughout their campaigns and then tenure.

Just like they had it when all this deal called the United States of America first started.

Then you will get people that are there that want to serve the people and not themselves.

 Sounds to me your head is in the right place… but you come off as a real bad republitard…. Check into other avenues for getting rid of lobbyists and campaign contribution limits

limit individuals in Congress to two terms only, just like the Pres,

 Are you considering how these two termers will be punished if they are found to be a "thief" as you put it?

pay them a dollar a day and allow NO SPECIAL INTEREST funding what so ever throughout their campaigns and then tenure.


 Here are some solids ideas…. however, you may need to go against your core belief of smaller government when you go to regulate potential candidates and their spending every election, every two years, or four… or maybe the terms could be made to be longer… or something….IDK… this will need some more thought...

Then you will get people that are there that want to serve the people and not themselves.

 Right… are there any of these jobs still created for us lowly humans anymore? Me thinks not…. but then again, I am delusional at best…. insane at the very least.

You do realize that the idea of payment government workers a dollar a day is not exactly going inspire the best and brightest to come work for the super-small government you are looking to achieve…. and you think this is going to create a better world for your children, or your children's children?

The right is all too willing to say the following stupid shit!!!


http://www.alternet.org/tea-party-and-right/8-despicable-right-wing-statements-last-week-alone

8 Despicable Right-Wing Statements From This Last Week Alone
The extreme right produced a host of offensive, racist and wildly inaccurate statements this week.


1. Penn. Gov. Corbett: Gays are like children. Neither should be able to marry.


2. Joe Walsh gives absurdly racist "I have a dream” speech.


3. Laura Ingraham makes bizarre and vicious decision to feature sound of a gunshot during John Lewis’ speech.


4. Christian radio show hosts: Gays commit half of all murders.


5. Pat Robertson: Gays using 'special rings' to infect us with AIDS.


6. Liz Cheney makes Dick Cheney look liberal by opposing her own sister’s right to marry.


7. Ted Cruz' father rants insanely about Obamacare.


8. Mitch McConnell woos women voters by touting legislation he never supported.


The closed minded/conservative types fail at being human sometimes…..




Or maybe it's just another fail of the republitards again…

http://www.politicususa.com/2013/09/01/republicans-boehner-cantor-blow-classified-briefing-syria.html


While Senate Democrats are already at work on Syria, drafting new language for an authorization, Boehner and Cantor, the top two House Republicans, didn’t show up to the classified Syria briefing top administration officials gave for House members on Sunday.

Boehner told House Republicans not to worry if they couldn’t make it because there will be many more.

In April, Cantor urged all members to attend a classified briefing on Syria, but now that it’s imminent that the House actually needs to vote on it, Boehner told everyone not to worry about it because there will be others:

Speaker John Boehner’s (R-Ohio) office said Saturday that administration officials will offer a classified briefing to House members on Sunday afternoon.
The Speaker’s office added that “many classified briefings” will be offered for members who are not in Washington and will be unable to attend Sunday’s briefing.
Way to compel attendance.

There might be many classified briefings offered, but House Republicans are only going to be in session for nine legislative days this month. It would be wise of them to not waste any part of one of those days by attending a classified briefing that they could have gone to on their own time, which the taxpayers are still paying them for.

In fact, Cantor made the case for authorizing engagement in April and demonstrated what it sounds like when a leader compels attendance, “The Syrian conflict has raged for many months, and nearly a hundred thousand Syrian civilians have been killed. The conflict now threatens to spill over Syria’s borders, destabilizing key American allies.

“This dangerous conflict threatens American national security interests in the region, and I wanted to take this opportunity… to urge members to attend the classified briefing that the administration will be providing tomorrow morning at 9:30 a.m. in the CVC auditorium.”

Skipping briefings both after and while complaining that they are not being included and don’t have information is becoming a habit for Republicans, who also skipped the Benghazi briefing. Who can forget John McCain whining on TV, demanding more information about Benghazi as he was skipping the briefing on Benghazi.

Hey, Sunday’s briefing was only the briefing to hear the case for why the administration feels we need to respond after the White House released an intelligence report showing that 1,429 Syrians had been killed in alleged chemical attacks. A vote is imminent.

Perhaps Republicans don’t feel they need information before they vote.

Some Republicans did show. Politico reported, “Among the high-ranking House lawmakers who were seen attending the briefing were House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), the third-ranking House Republican; House Republican Conference Chairwoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.), and House Democratic Caucus Chairman Xavier Becerra (D-Calif.).”

Where were number one and two, Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA)? Leading by example and skipping the briefing, apparently.

Eric Cantor, who sets the schedule for the House, has also not called the House back early from their vacation in order to deal with Syria.

This leaves House Republicans 9 days to deal with the debt ceiling crisis they created, the continuing resolution funding crisis they created, and Syria. Nine days for the most dysfunctional House ever in recorded history to handle all three of those issues.

While it doesn’t appear that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid made it to the House briefing, the Senate is already working on their version of authorization. Aides to Reid and Senator Robert Menendez are are overseeing the Senate version of Syria authorization, which will limit the scope of the White House’s version.

They just perpetuate lies and BS

Maybe Satan has taken their souls, or maybe they are just PODs

Why do they Hate America so much?
They should at least move out of California, since they think it's the worst State.

TGT, the Dems were the Conservatives during the Civil war, the South was and still is conservative,
the Current Republicans are still Pro slavery, and would have shot Lincoln since he was True Liberal, they have done everything in their power to stop civil rights for any minority group, idiot.

Well, we sure would save a buttload of taxpayers money. Cus what we have today and have had for over 14 years now, are about as bright as DRF and his insistence of a NEO MARXIST state.

Hysterical how DRF (Craig) never can rebut the facts. SO he then turns to the standard routine of belittling and just plain being a complete asshoole and spewer of hatred towards anyone that does not agree with his position. And he wants this nation to follow his ideological groups recommendation on who is best to lead and govern with the examples of hate he displays here?

I suggest Craig you permanently move out deep into the desert and concentrate on growing them succulents. Cus you literally are a menace to any society. Your hatred is just plain pathetic.

Honestly, I think you have been chewing on far too many of the wrong buttons.

The closed minded Neo-Marxist liberal types fail at being human sometime. Just read some of DRF's posts belittling anyone that does not agree with him and of his hatred towards them here on this thread

There. Fixed it for ya.

There isn't a single Neo-Marxist living in America today, but I guess that doesn't matter to you, you just make up sh#t that sounds good to you.
Liberalism is Not Marxism, not even close.

My brothers and me want to help America, your hope is that everyone dies, so you can have your little anarchist hell hole all to yourself.

The contrast is night and day, you are pure evil, hated by everyone, and the biggest a-hole to hit ST in the last couple years. You will be banned because of your abusive posting style.
None of us mind a debate, but we debate ideas, not stupidity.

Everything you post is a lie, anti-science, anti-intellectual, anti-love, anti-society, and can only be attributed to you being a very sick individual. Get help, go away.

But go on bashing me and my brothers, you're just burning more bridges and making your place in hell that you desire.

Dear Chief;

Your idiocy continues to amaze. It truly does. There isn't anyone, not a single person on ST that's anywhere near as stupid as you are...ok, maybe Ron Anderson; he comes pretty close. It leaves me breathless! I'm in awe! You are a monument, the pyramids of Giza of stupid. Go ahead and accuse me of being childish and calling you names but YOU are the God of stupid. Muslim suicide bombers and the Libertarian Party pray every night that they should one day be as stupid as you. They're working hard at it, but you have reached Stupid Nirvana and are untouchable.
