    Actually, that had some content that was debateable. I got that you disagree with him... other than that you just chose not to debate it and broad-stroked his vagueness with an even larger obtuseness.

    I'm not implying anything. I'm outright stating it.

    The OP is horrendously ignorant about the situation here in California. He doesn't live here, and he has no ideas what it is like to live here, under the mess that currently exists here.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Depends where you are. Those of us in the Bay Area are in pretty good shape. Hell, when I was talking to my mom over Thanksgiving, she told me she'd just found out that her house had appreciated in value by about 40% in the last six months.

    But I heard on Fox News that businesses are fleeing the state in droves, poor Mexicans are forced to flee to Oklahoma and Texas because they can't afford to live in the liberal yuppy hellholes in places like the Bay Area, and Arnie was actually a closet liberal Democrat (like George W. Bush).

    The sky is apparently falling in California!

    California Finds Economic Gloom Starting to Lift
    Ya gotta love the optimism of the left. They see a glimmer and create a lightning bolt. From the posted link:

    California reported a 10.1 percent unemployment rate last month, down from 11.5 percent in October 2011 and the lowest since February 2009. In September, California had its biggest month-to-month drop in unemployment in the 36 years the state has collected statistics, from 10.6 percent to 10.2 percent, though the state still has the third-highest jobless rate in the nation.
    Yeah, buddy... leading the nation alright. Maybe Moonbeam can buy a few jobs with that surplus.

    Just wondering, do you disagree with Jerry Brown's leadership thus far?

    I neither agree nor disagree with his leadership... but @ 10% unemp, it's a little premature to hang 'greatest gov in history' around his neck just yet.

    Can't rebut the facts, so you insult.

    Schwarzenegger blew it. Spent all his time with his maid and cowtowing to the GOP obstructionists. Brown has fixed the economy in a couple years.

    All rightwing memes, all the time.

    California's economy dwarves any other state and would be a powerful economic nation in its own right (10 or 11th in the word as I recall). Recessions hit California harder because its economy is so big. But then its recoveries are also big. Alabama didn't have far to go to the bottom and won't rise much higher as the economy recovers. California always growth tremendously.
