California government, together with the voting bloc of so-called Progressives, acts like a child who steals his rich parents’ credit cards
1-30-17, Jon Rappaport [Excerpt] -- The California state government, together with the voting bloc of so-called Progressives, acts like a child who steals his rich parents’ credit cards, maxes them out, gives his new Ferrari to “a friend in need,” burns down his own house, and then complains that things are not going well.
Financial analysts, and even Governor Jerry Brown, agree that the real debt of the California government is…$400 billion. That’s right. This includes bond issues, retirement and pension fund obligations, and health care for retirees.
The new Trump administration is threatening to cut federal funds to California, unless its sanctuary cities agree to cooperate in handing over illegal immigrants for deportation. So California officials, intent on protecting those immigrants, are pondering ways to replace that lost federal funding. At the top of their to-do list? Withholding state-taxes they’re required to send to Washington every year, and using the money to make up for the new impending shortfall.
This isn’t your great-great grandfather’s tax rebellion. This is a massive debtor-state government bloviating about helping immigrants in need while they, themselves, are drowning in a sea of red ink without a life preserver. “We don’t care how much money we owe. It doesn’t matter. We’re virtuous. That’s all that counts.” [..snip]
How times change. In 1975 [Gerald Ford was President], it was permissible to reject immigrants and explain why. It was permissible to claim too many people were already on welfare. It was permissible to prefer helping people who already lived in California.
But not now. It’s not politically correct to make such statements or hold such views in public. Now you have to go the opposite way, regardless of what you actually believe. Even if it drops the state into a deeper hole.
“Hello, world. Send us EVERYBODY. No limits. We’re virtuous. I swear it. I really mean it. Now excuse me, I have to go see a man about fortifying my bunker with autonomous drones and robot security guards. Remember, I care. Deeply.” [sarcasm]
