    As long as he pays his taxes, he could be snorting hot chocolate off a hooker's kneecap for all I care. His money to do with as he pleases.

    Of course, when you factor in the population, they're not really third at all, but 45th...

    Hmmm.

    Well, I'm thinking it's a bit curious to be dancing on a debt meme, when the Obama Administration is establishing new records.

    However, I also think 2nd or 3rd in national unemployment, home to over 30% of the nations welfare cases, highest income, sales and corporate taxes, along with bankrupt cites crushed by unsustainable public employee pension and benefit plans places the Liberal/Progressive's California light years ahead of Texas.

    Frankly, California is the liberal/progressives worst nightmare.

    LOL !!

    California's unfunded liabilities are what ? 300 billion ? But hey it's reporting it's recouped it's 95 billion in the stock market ? LOL ! All that printed currency is holding you guys up ???

    Sorry, your one dimensional data is completely deprived of factual content that shows how desperate California's fiscal situation is.

    Like I said we're not worried as I think we've been ranked the Top State to do bussiness consecutively for what ? 5 or 6 years running ?

    Your;e getting desperate.

    You call Mr. Frugal Jerry Brown... living on a lavish lifestyle? You clearly don't know much about Jerry Brown.


    Blunt and stingy, Jerry Brown suits California just fine this time around
    Jerry Brown grated on many Californians when he was governor three decades ago, but his style seems to fit the state's mood well now, as he 'is making frugal fashionable, finally.'

    He dismantled Arnold Schwarzenegger’s cigar-smoking tent that was ensconced on the Capitol grounds. He took the former Hollywood star’s giant “Conan the Barbarian” sword off the wall of the governor’s office, and replaced the polished walnut boardroom table with a pinewood picnic table.

    “I want people when they come in my office to know they’re on a hard surface,” he says.

    He has stood on a coffee table for news conferences, lives in a former Chevy dealership, walks to work, and not only flies commercial, but coach-class on the state’s least-expensive airline. And without an entourage.


    Not to mention the huge surpluses Jerry Brown is running following the crushing deficits left by AHHHnold.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
