    A German.

    These lefties are going to make the debt Bush sold overseas look like bumming quarters for a bus ride.

    The budget process in California look like Thelma and Louise's car. It is going to take a lot of imaginative ideas to get it running.

    Uh, is this the same as taking money from foreigners to influence elections or politics?

    I'm not defending Governor Brown but wouldn't this be better than asking for a government bailout? Or is it just the same?

    Interesting idea there.

    No, the problems are all internal, and they all have to do with spending.

    So unless Baron Von Latte is going to suggest hard cuts, he's pissing in the wind.

    NEVER.... NEVER EVER EVER..... Never EVEN CONSIDER cuts... First you would lose votes O M F G!!! and second they would have to admit that massive social programs and Illegal immigrates don't help for fuckin shit...

    More reality NUKING liberal logic.

    Wait, was Arnold a conservative? HAHahahaha... just not on policy.

    Now go ahead and attack me for pointling out the rality on how Cali got in this mess... I'm not a Rep, but cali is liberal ALLL the fucking way.

    CA is about $30b in the hole now, and no one has that kind of money to bail them out. Some state needs to be made an example, and CA looks like the best one. Let them default, let them get back to fiscal sanity like the rest of us, then we'll see what reality looks like.
