Default California to begin layoff proceedings today

I feel for these people. They even said the gov. to hold back income taxe returns.
Questions

#1 Do you all think we may get lucky and the raiders will be laid off?

#2 Would it be alright to march into there office ask for a audit and demand your money now?

I think the best thing for Califonia to do is split in to 2-3 states. That way they could better control their spending.

It's truly amazing how disconnected many of these politicians are...I'm very curious to see how this all turns out.

Kansas is even holding back on paying state refunds at the present time. It comes down to the politicians and state agencies spending (and wasting) too much money...

I think all movie star celebs should donate half their checks for 2009. I mean, they are always around trying to help with AIDS and FARMS and HURRICANES. Why not help your own state and the people in it.


CA should put up toll booths along all major freeways and charge people to go in and out of the state. Okay, maybe not

Notice that they haven't cut any programs to cope with their financial difficulties? Just like the Federal Government spending plan disaster Obama just signed.

A tax hike in this economy would be suicide. The owner of where I work is right on the cusp. He is making a touch of money. Not really enough to be worth the heart ache and risk. You go and and try to raise his taxes, He would probably just say. Fine I am done. And walk away.

Wow. Well atleast somebody in California didn't just have 8 kids with no possible means to support them. If that were to happen and I was a tax payer, I'd be pissed.

I think they need to open the files onto where all this money went. I own a business and let me tell you I pay for more then my share of taxes. I even pay 36.94 every month for the stop light that happens to be on the corner of my lot. These guys piss threw money and nothing happens because no one knows where it goes.

If there was a way to see who was spending X amount of money on what a lot of these problems would change.

Right. And each of them would be able to handle things soooooo much better. The next fire, they can forget the Emergency Disaster Designation and take care of themselves. Earthquake? Pfffttt. Those ststes can take care of themselves. In fact, Louisiana should have taken better care of their own people. Just cut the taxes and reduce their spending, and all would be well.

Typical shortsighted BS from a lie-bertarian wanna be.....

You might want to actually do research before you spout out stupid opinions.

That's how crazy it is. For China to keep growing they have to prop up the dollar buy buying our treasury bonds. The have already agreed to keep buying them at 3%. But if they try to cash them in the dollar would plummet and they would be worthless. So they are content with the interest payment.

Meanwhile we print money with no inflation, and the dollar is going up people. It makes no sense. Either its just how it is now and everything will be fine or we go Mad Max. I still say we will be fine. But Maybe I will be some seeds just in case!!!!!!

SOLL: That would be too much work and involve having an open mind...

There is certainly some ill conceived spending, and the REpugnicans sdid their share of it, but not to the extent that some would have you believe.

Know what? Even that Bridge to Nowhere in Alaska had a decent rational behind it, but I don't think there is anyone here who has half a notion as to what the would be. That would be contrary to the "party line".

Not to mention, California has abandoned tons of projects (though according to Taco, we just keep spending). Also, the stubborn minority threw a real wrench in the california legislation (this does sound familiar!) It was next to impossible ever to get a tax increase!

SOcialists wont cut programs Isaac.

I damn sure dont have the answers to the economic problems but I damn sure know that when you are broke, you dont spend money. Jesus Christ, I may not be an economist but it doesnt take a genius to figure this out.

They can always close schools, stop athetics, and leave the porivate schools open at full tuition..... Let the entire vice squad go. The bunko squad can also go. No State Patrol. Who needs the staff to do the licenses? They can just cut the DMV offices all around the State, and anyone who needs a license should go to Sacremento to get one. Shouldn't be any more of those rescue guards on the beaches, and they don't need the trash dumps since they can just dump it into the ocean. There are a lot of things California can cut. Cut highway reparis. Close all the State Hospitals, and make the Colleges strictly tuition only. Can't afford it? Tough, we are on the TJ/GB budget and spending plan. We don't need a Legislature for more than two-three days, so that will save a bunch. Since the folds are gonna be honest, nmow, we can cut the police and fireepartments all over the State. There will be no need to deal with the illegals, so they can just come in any time they want, who cares?

What other services would you like to see cut?
