    Public employees are raping the state coffers.

    I also wonder what the purpose is of 19 City Departments. No doubt, quite a bit of money is funneled into activities that have nothing to do with basic services.

    Don't worry, national bankruptcy or default will end it all in a big sharp jerk that will snap the necks of most parasitical organizations and groups. Economic collapse tends to force everyone to work very hard or die... and everyone suffers for the excesses like one monumental hangover.

    One small part of a larger problem. This is nothing more than a symptom of the real issue and that is feel good politics playing loose with future cash for instant gratification. The problem is far deeper than we have discovered thus far.

    I was shocked at all the unfinished commercial buildings where construction had stopped. They were everywhere out near Arco arena and the Sac airport.

    Broke, no. We have 9 billion in surplus. What we do have is excess fat hanging everywhere. State jobs, education, parks and wildlife, are being cut among many others. We created a shitload of jobs that we couldn't pay for. Now, they're being axed.

    This thread is about California; you're obviously too stupid to understand that. The causes of one state's fiscal situation is not automatically equal to another's just because they share the status of statehood, you dumber than shit fucking moron.
