    What Happens to California Now?

    California voters sensibly rejected the tax raising scams promoted on the special election by the people who can't understand that we're taxed too much.

    Five Out of Six Scam Props Fail, Voters Support Legislator Pay Freeze for Deficit Years

    So what's next?

    The ex-Terminator went to DC before the election, knowing that his propositions were going to fail, to beg for money from The Messiah.

    The LA Times is in a frenzy blaming the voters for THEIR "irresponsibity".

    The prisons are threatening to release thousands of illegal aliens.

    The politicians are babbling about cuts to "essential" services...and not a word about the huge number of completely unnecessary government expenses.

    So what's going to happen next?

    Re: What Happens to California Now?

    I'm not really sure how big of an impact California's bankruptcy would have. It's the fifth-largest economy in the world, so it would undoubtedly send shockwaves around the world...but it's hard to tell if it would be catastrophic or merely unfortunate, and I can't really decide if I would support a federal bailout until I know that. But I'm inclined to avoid bailing them out if at all possible. I think the biggest risk would be from the banks who hold Californian bonds collapsing themselves.

    Does anyone know how much public debt California currently has? That would help provide an idea of how severe the risk to the global economy is.

    They'll get bailed out.

    Prediction: The Federal government will become insolvent, the world will reject our currency and refuse to further finance out debt, systemic collapse. All because we couldn't let inefficient models of business and government fail. Allow creative destruction to take place and we will be out of this mess in less than two years.

    The LA Times is in a frenzy blaming the voters for THEIR "irresponsibity".[COLOR="DarkRed"]The pay freeze is irresponsible ??? [COLOR]

    The prisons are threatening to release thousands of illegal aliens.

    The politicians are babbling about cuts to "essential" services...and not a word about the huge number of completely unnecessary government expenses.And, exactly, what are these un-necessary expenditures ?

    So what's going to happen next?
    IMO, one un-necessary cost is having these so-called aliens in prison in the first place....
    These people are here for the special and better treatment and jobs...
    Wanna - save money, or not ??
    I have ways of cutting prison costs, but the bleeding hearts and politically corect will not like it..

    Re: What Happens to California Now?

    For all of the red staters’ bitching and moaning about California and having to pay taxes and how horrible welfare is, most of the solidly red states* receive more from the federal government than they contribute to the federal government.

    For fiscal year 2005, the latest year for which I was able to find figures, for every $1 that Repugnican Gov. Haley Barbour’s state of Mississippi gave the federal government, it received $2.02 from the federal government in return. A 202 percent return ain’t bad! Repugnican Gov. Sarah Palin-Quayle’s Alaska? $1.84 — you betcha! Repugnican Gov. Bobby Jindal’s Louisiana? $1.78. Yet all three of these Repugnican governors have balked at accepting even more money for their states from the federal government — not because their states hate to receive federal money, obviously, but apparently because it’s Democratic President Barack Obama, the nation’s first black president, who is offering it.

    The list goes on: In 2005 West Virginia got back $1.76 for every $1 that it contributed. North Dakota: $1.68. Alabama: $1.66. South Dakota: $1.53. Kentucky and Virginia: $1.51. Montana: $1.47. Arkansas: $1.41. Oklahoma: $1.36. South Carolina (whose Repugnican governor also has balked at accepting even more federal money for his state): $1.35. Missouri: $1.32. Tennessee: $1.27. Idaho: $1.21. Repugnican presidential wannabe John McCainosaurus’ Arizona: $1.19. Kansas: $1.12. Wyoming: $1.11. Nebraska: $1.10. Utah: $1.07. Georgia: $1.01.
