    Re: California Has Budget Surplus, Eliminates Budget Deficit

    I've always been a fan of the 50 laboratories concept of federalism. The states should be as free as possible to manage their own affairs and to succeed and fail as a result. Part of the reason I like the idea of changing how the federal government is funded by taxing the state governments instead of the people and letting the state experiment with the best way to raise the funding. Of course that also means increasing the state's influence over the Federal by amending the constitution to let the state governments to select the senators from their states. The state can then decide what selection method, election, appointment or whatever works best.
    Under democracy one party always devotes its chief energies to trying to prove that the other party is unfit to rule - and both commonly succeed, and are right. H. L. Mencken US editor (1880 - 1956)

    Thus do we redistribute wealth... upward.

    Silly article from MOONIE TIMES. There have been major developments in the IT Sector in this state, including the creation of 26,000 jobs in that sector last year. Most of California's job creation last year were in high paying positions.

    http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-18563_16...-job-creation/



    We're not in the clear... and there are some hurdles including a serious need to improve infrastructure, but that article is exactly the right wing rubbish that doesn't have much basis in reality. Moonie Times... seriously?

    Yeah and cutting education is such a fantastic plan for the future right? That's a good way to sacrifice the future. Why should California cut the education budget? It's already done that and the cuts must come to an end.

    California's economy is on a stable footing as is its financial situation, and that's in the interest of everyone in the country.
    No state is on a stable footing economy-wise until its infrastructure can get a "B" grade across the board.

    Look at all those damned Tax-and-Spend Democrats and Liberals flushing California down the toilet with bloated spending and catastrophic deficits as far as the eye can see.

    Oh...wait...WHAT???

    This needs to be quoted for truth.

    Originally, under the US Constitution, state legislatures chose Senators. The 17th Amendment changed it to direct election. A much better choice. Most state governments are fucked up and corrupt, which is why the 17th Amendment passed in the first place.

    So we substituted one kind of corruption for another.

    Research has shown that having leaders select one of their own to take a higher position of leadership actually yields better leaders. Going back to letting legislatures do the selecting and allowing no consecutive terms would reduce corruption overall.

    You're saying that California has big problems with this kind of infrastructure? Yes, in megacities it is inevitable to run into jammed traphique (oh, OK, traffic), etc. But I don't remember any time I've ever been in California, and thought "Wow, their highways are total shit here" or anything like that. There are some states, such as Virginia, where some of the highways are indeed awful.

    Their biggest problem with power was when the electric market was massively deregulated about 10-15 years ago, and Enron was among the soulless players who found their way in to manipulate everything.

    And water - California seems to be doing what they can, with the very real limitations that the southern half of the state is almost entirely desert, and water needs to come from hundreds of miles away. This is all at Mother Nature's whim.

    I feel pretty safe on our bridges and stuff. With the earthquake retrofitting required here, I would guess they're probably more stable than those in other states.

    note: Enron got in and manipulated because it WASN'T actually deregulated -- what California did in "deregulating was like exchanging the tires on a car for two wagon wheels, a NASCAR tire, and a bicycle rim. If they'd deregulated evenly, Enron would have been up shit creek without even a canoe.
