But good news though, you raised taxes on yourself and as we all know by now higher taxes equal a better standard of living. Right? I'm just not sure for whom.
What's that saying I always used to hear? Oh yeah, "As California goes, so goes the nation". Well, like California the nation has doubled-down on stupid and re-elected the Dems who got us here.
Bummer about CA. I lived there from 1973-2001 and it was great! SF is a great city too. Use to tour up the coast through the bay area, and was there this past October. Had a blast!
I disagree with it being a Democrats problem. It's a problem both sides have created. Lets not forget what CA once was? Mexico, and "we so called Americans" took it from the people you call illegals.
We were not the first people here in what we call the USA. Have we forgotten? Seems we have or just don't give a **** and sweep our mess under a rug.
Part of the problem was NAFTA. We put them out of work when we started bring our fruits and veggies over the boarder for a cheaper price. They couldnt compete. So where did they go for work? Yes, back over the boarder. Mans got to work and provide for his family.
Now CA has too many people living there and not enough good paying jobs. Should we just let all the Hispanic kids run the streets amuck? or would it be wise to invest in there education and make them productive hard working citizens?
Under the Obama administration they have deported more illegals than Bush did in his 8 years. (Look it up).
I see a lot of people on this forum and other forums spouting God and Country. Do you really believe in God and what the bible says? Doesn't the bible talk about feeding the hungry and clothing the poor? Helping one another? All I see here is people saying "FVCK them"!
We need social programs to grow as a country. However there are people that take advantage of these programs for personal gain. These are the people we need to deal with. I have been on unemployment 2 times in my working life. I don't know what I would have done without it.
I feel bad for CA and states like it that are having a tough time of it. I don't know what the answers are but I do know it's not calling each other retards. This gets us nowhere.
And as far as Michael being Gay or anyone else for that matter, it's none of ones business. It's his choice just like it's my choice to have a women for a wife. I like Michael. He seems like a really nice guy and has nothing but good things to say. I enjoy reading his posts. Plus he rides a FXR! Best HD ever made!!!!
Does the bible say to be a hater towards someone who doesn't believe in what you believe? All the God fearing people say "what would Jesus do"? Do you really think he would ba a hater? I don't think so. I really don't.
I am so ****ing sick of the finger pointing. How's about rather than point blame you do something about it rather than complaining?
Okay, I'm done.
Solve the problem, Don't be the problem.
