Other States would kill to have California’s GDP potential. Many other States have similar Debt problems without the GDP potential to recover.

    That list, right there is the truth, of trying to please everybody and satisfying nobody

  2. Obama Ate a Dog

    Liberals see no connection between out of control spending on a bloated government, and the government’s dire financial distress.

    Liberalism really and truly is a mental disorder, characterized by a tendency to fixate on the pursuit of a desired goal while remaining completely unaware of the adverse effects this pursuit is having.

    Liberalism is the mindset of a small child who chases a ball out into traffic on a busy street. They have absolutely no awareness of the severe dangers of what they are doing. All they can think is “Chase the ball, chase the ball, chase the ball, chase the BEEEEEEPPPP thud….”

    That’s what’s happening to the USA right now.

    Easy, and I don’t need to write a novel to get my point across.

    They over taxed, and still spent more on entitlements then they took in. (true democrat economy)

    US Slips Down the Ranks of Global Competitiveness
    CNBC.com | September 05, 2012 | 04:04 AM EDT
    The United States has slipped further down a global ranking of the world’s most competitive economies, according to a World Economic Forum (WEF) survey released on Wednesday.

    The world’s largest economy, which was placed 5th last year, fell two positions to the 7th spot – marking its fourth year of decline.

    A lack of macroeconomic stability, the business community’s continued mistrust of the government and concerns over its fiscal health were some of the reasons for the downgrade, according to the annual survey.

    “A number of weaknesses are chipping away at its (the U.S.’) competitiveness…(for example) the U.S. fiscal imbalances and continued political deadlock over resolving these challenges,” said Jennifer Blanke, Economist at the Geneva-based WEF.

    Political deadlock over reducing the unsustainable federal government budget deficit – projected to hit $ 1.1 trillion this year – prompted Standard & Poor’s to downgrade the country’s credit rating by one notch to AA+ from AAA last August.

    VOTE ROMNEY / RYAN. 

    Some facts for you

    President Obama is a student of Marxism
    Plain and simply put
    He is a socialist
    He thinks government is the answer and we should all look to the government for everything
    He hates people who do well on their own
    That’s where the “THEY DIDN’T BUILD THAT” mentality comes from!
    He insists that government is the reason people have anything
    That may be true for deadbeat democrats
    But not republicans and Independents
    We are a capitalist society
    The best Country there ever was
    We have proven Socialism does not work
    That’s why the USSR is now broken up!
    No one is willing to die to get into China

    CHECK THE FACTS

    Unemployment in Jan 2009-7.8%. NOW 8.3%
    Middle class income in 2009- $ 54.900. NOW $ 50.800. 
    Gas per gallon in Jan 2009. $ 1.84. NOW $ 3.82
    National debt in Jan 2009. $ 10.6T. NOW $ 15.8T

    50% of minority Kids drop out of school
    75% of minority babies are born to uneducated non working unwed under age mothers
    93% of ALL CRIME committed in America are committed by minorities
    90% of minorities vote the democratic ticket

    Are these the people President Obama wants all of America to be like???
    Are we better off now???
    Will we be after four more years of this kind of results???

    HELL NO

    do we need four more years of this ?
    MOVING FOREWARD???
    I DON’T THINK SO 
    WE’D BE BETTER OFF IF THAT CHAIR REALLY WAS EMPTY

    Vote for ROMNEY / RYAN

    CLINTON, OBAMA, AND THE DEMOCRATS ARE ALL LIEING!!!

    THIS IS WHAT CAUSED THE RECESSION 

    NOT BUSH OR THE REPUBLICANS

    Clinton HUD Secretary 1998 (moments after announcing a record high discrimination settlement) Video Link Below

    “”To take a greater risk on these mortgages…yes. To give families mortgages they who they would not have given otherwise?…yes.”

    Mr. Cuomo is then asked if this people in this group could have gotten the loans at all in the first place. In a telling response, he answers:

    “They would not have qualified, but for this AFFIRMATIVE ACTION on the part of the bank…yes.”

    Mr. Cuomo then confirms for a reporter that the affirmative action is indeed for minorities and that he expects the default rate to be higher than the rest of the portfolio:

    “It is…by income it is mostly by minorities…yes.”

    TRANSLATION GIVE LOANS TO PEOPLE WHO CAN’T PAY THEM OR BE FINED FOR DISCRIMINATION !

    Fannie Mae Eases Credit To Aid Mortgage Lending

    WASHINGTON, Sept. 29, 1999 — In a move that could help increase home ownership rates among minorities and low-income consumers, the Fannie Mae Corporation is easing the credit requirements on loans that it will purchase from banks and other lenders.

    The action, which will begin as a pilot program involving 24 banks in 15 markets — including the New York metropolitan region — will encourage those banks to extend home mortgages to individuals whose credit is generally not good enough to qualify for conventional loans.

    THIS PROVES THE COLLAPSE OF THE BANKING SYSTEM STARTED UNDER PRESIDENT CLINTON

    THE DEMOCRATS PUSHED FOR LOANS TO MINORITY AND LOW INCOME PEOPLE WITH BAD CREDIT

    NO WONDER THE BANKS WENT UNDER

    You are highly annoying. Do you actually think people read EVERY thing you wrote?

    You need help.

  8. Rolando Prico

    Because California unlike the many GOP-leaning states contribute more in federal funding than they receive in federal taxes.

  9. Common Sense

    The big problem is tha CA pushed out manufacturing. CA is responsible for the TX boom.

  10. Ar

    The Democrats run the state, that’s why. Very simple.

  11. Joe Heaton

    It’s broke because of Proposition 13.

    You’re compendium is nothing but a mindless, cut-and-paste randomness.

    Righties – they HATE America – but they hate California, New York, and Chicago even more – - – even more than they hate …

    - Blacks
    - Jews
    - Catholics
    - Latinos
    - Homosexuals
    - Our Troops

    Righties are Whining Sickos.
