(Bloomberg)   Those moon-beam libs just got California's credit rating downgraded. Let that be a lesson to...oh, it was upgraded? To the highest level in 13 years? Well, BENGHAZI   (bloomberg.com ) divider line 160

Taxbongo: HotWingConspiracy: Taxbongo: HotWingConspiracy: Taxbongo: HotWingConspiracy: When you marginalize conservatives, society can actually function.

That is a very illiberal viewpoint. Conservatives deserve the same amount of representation that we do

Nobody deserves parity in representation. If your ideas suck and your only remaining function is to ruin progress to the point that society has shaken you off like a dog does fleas, you're right where you belong.

Disenfranchising peoples rights is wrong. Its wrong when they do it and its wrong when we do it.

What? No rights have been violated here. They're selling a product people aren't buying.

My apologies I must be misreading what you wrote. For clarification, were you saying that Republicans should have their voting rights marginalized?


I don't think anyone is making that claim. What most liberals are saying is that Republican dogma aren't worth the dog-crap they're based on and we're under no obligation to listen to or heed their incessant pointless and irrelevant whining. They voters can vote however they want. The representatives are whoever the electorate choose, and in CA, most of the representatives are of the (D) type. Those with the (R) after their name can do whatever they want, but given their lack of political muscle in Sacramento, the (D) representatives are under no obligation to yield to their stupid rehashed ideas. (NOTE: there has been no fresh ideas from the GOP since ever.)

Jerry Brown is the best conservative executive this country has had in decades.

Canada (roughly the same population size as California) lost its AAA rating in the 1990's.  Any guesses how we got our AAA rating back.  Here's a hint, it involved additional revenue.

hammettman: Wifey's company is in the process of getting Bained. Very successful company, began in 1981, headquartered in our town. 7,500 to 8,000 employees, major employer in town. For many years it was known as an awesome place to work. About 10 years ago "activist" shareholders began biatching about company growth. The business was never "struggling," but was not making profits like it did in earlier years. This of course, is due to the nature of the type of business it's in, but investors don't want to hear about R&D cycles, etc... 3 years ago they succeeded in getting the longtime CEO axed. He was replaced with a Wall Street CEO. Shortly thereafter, the manufacturing division was outsourced to Asia. Sales staff was slashed, departments have been merged, the CEO has been shopping a headquarter move to any state that will foot the bill for the move and a promise of a tax incentive. Wifey has seen the Bain playbook in action. She's been asked to justify her job. Despite the fact that her job benefits customers and develops goodwill, her job has been labeled non-essential as it does not directly contribute financially in short term bottom line accounting. Wifey has about 4 more months before she's out, along with the other 1/3 of the workers to be laid off. The company's been on a buying binge, acquiring other, similar companies. With debt. The end result is that within 2-3 years, this company will be gone, via merge or move. But not completely gone. Plans call to leave the senior executives here, because no doubt they don't want to live in some shiathole community with horrid weather in Georgia, Texas or other southern states in the running. Rumors abound on how much Bain is making for their "services." For all the Romney cocksuckers out there who want to claim that he's a great businessman, just DIAF.


I don't see a problem here. Your wife isn't owed a job. If she drops her entitled attitude and gets skills that make her worth something, she'll do well. If she wants to whine about how unfair life is she won't get far.

And stop saying "Wifey". You sound like a creepier Ned Flanders. But jobs being outsourced is a problem, especially when the jobs being outsourced are productive as opposed to Wifey's. Outsourcing looks good on this quarter's bottom line but it winds up biting them in the ass in the long run and everyone suffers. But I'm out of that biz so I don't give a shiat.

jso2897: DrPainMD: FTA: "The Moody's upgrade affected $86 billion of debt..."

California's state government has 132.6 billion in debt. Add projected unfunded liabilities and it looks like it's over a trillion. With a population of 38 million, that's about $3500/$29,000 per person. And don't even think about adding county/local debt (it's in the link).

Glad I don't live in CA anymore.

One of the minor side benefits of the superior way we run our state is that it runs a lot of ignorant creeps off.
Not enough - there are still infestations of them in the sticks, where there is no education or culture. But by and large, a lot of crappy people and institutions have bugged out of California lately, and it's a real blessing.
We don't need any more retarded hicks here.


I employ 17 people and my company had gross revenues of just under $4.5 million last year. THAT'S what CA is running off.

First, you assume that you would have the same in CA.

Second, there are thousands of people more than willing to start operate businesses in CA. The state has a population growth rate of 2.9%, a half a percent above the average.

Third, CA has a GDP of $2,000,000 million, I doubt they are too worried about that 0.0002%.
