    "A little oil drilling" wouldn't come close to even putting a sizable debt in our budget issues. Please try again. California has also been paying much more to the federal government than we've been receiving for several years now, most of it going to subsidize red states. I think asking for some of that money back is within our rights.

    GOM?
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    GOM = Gulf Of Mexico I believe.

    GOM?
    It would do a fine job of displacing that, what? $53 million deficit ya'll got from giving away more welfare than taxes you're bringing in. Go tell someone who doesn't have a job that you're going to just extend their unemployment another 99 weeks, even though you don't have a clue where the money is going to come from, instead of putting that person to work and collecting taxes off his very high paying oilpatch job.

    Perhaps you don't realize that the oil and gas industry is the Federal government's largest single source of non-tax revenue. Without that money, it's going to make it damn hard for Obama to bail ya'll out.
