Put in a dollar, take out three.
The State employees eat at the trough, for life and we are expected to pick up their lavish bennies, perks and pensions.
It’s coming to an end. LA is next, and with no cops (the first thing always cut by the unions) it could become Mexico City overnight.
My parents live in that city. It is right next to Merced, and that area has the highest unemployment in the state, IIRC. So it is not unexpected that the city is having financial difficulties.
Things haven’t been quite the same since closing of Castle AFB.
Sung to the tune of AMERICAN PIE...
A long, long time ago
I can still remember how those Democrat promises made them smile
And I knew if I had my way
That I could make those taxpayers pay
And enough people would be happy for awhile
But now November makes me shiver
Since I made promises I can’t deliver
Bad news on the doorstep
Even with the media in lockstep
I don’t remember if I cried
When Chevy Volt sales up and died
But something touched me deep inside
The day they knew the Democrats lied.
And we were singing
Buy, buy another Democrat lie
Drove my Volt down to the station
Cause I thought it would fry
Chrissy Matthews is busy drinking whiskey and rye
Singin’ “this November I’m gonna cry,
This November I’m gonna cry-y-y.”

Thanks ever so much, Robert Kennedy Jr, for leading the legal fight to shut off that water.......
