But  of course, the only places they can consider cutting costs are Education, Police and Fire Departments according to both state and federal politicians.
Whether you’re a Democrat, a Republican or Independent, this list has to shock you. Over the years, these very same politicians have created this enormous pork  barrel of agencies that employ about as many people as the total population of  the State of Alaska. All of these people get salaries, medical coverage and  pensions at the expense of California citizens.


  1. Lord, have mercy!

    Talk about a list of clanging cymbals (or, symbols -- pun intended). Sheesh.

  2. What a roll call of horror. I bet a list of federal agencies would put that one to shame.

  3. I sent this post to my brother, who is TRAPPED in CA. His house, a very affordable one is "under water." He's stuck! Plus, Mom is still out there and cannot be moved because she has the last of AD.

    I am so glad that I left CA forever in 1972! It used to be a great place to live.

  4. "I bet a list of federal agencies would put that one to shame."

    INDEED! And that was EXACTLY the inference I hoped everyone would draw, SilverFiddle.

    Liberalism is not just a mental disorder, it's a rapidly metastasizing CANCER on the body politic.

    We may very well be in the terminal stages of the disease.

    Something in the air smells like DOOM.

    Maybe it's only Obama's failure to put on underarm deodorant the last time he showered -- when was it? -- two or three weeks ago?

    Or maybe the White House septic system has backed up again? God knows it's been more heavily overburdened than ever before since the current First Family took residence.

    Meanwhile, The Golden State is covered neck deep in lib-generated sepsis.

    Pardon me while I leave the office to throw up in the john. Hope I make it on time!

  5. @ Free Thinker... "Liberalism is not just a mental disorder, it's a rapidly metastasizing CANCER on the body politic.

    We may very well be in the terminal stages of the disease.

    Something in the air smells like DOOM.

    Maybe it's only Obama's failure to put on underarm deodorant the last time he showered -- when was it? -- two or three weeks ago?"

    Well then, a bit hyperbolic perhaps given the road from whence we set foot on has been a long and winding one to be sure.

    Each change of Congress and Administrations have had their fingers in the pie. Tweaking it to and fro, all adding to those things we argue over today.

    It is really about philosophy. A rational philosophy grounded in reason and logic. But of course most people take the approach of, philosophy?, who the hell nee that crap, it's only for those who have nothing better to do and think about.

    Maybe, but where are we today? The blind leading the blind, and hoping that miraculously it will all somehow just go away.

    The paths sub paths followed by the republicans and the democrats are a bit varied, the scenery may change, and the smells might be more or less pleasant, but at the end of the trip all roads will end at the same cliff. Unless there is REAL and SIGNIFICANT chage.

    I'm not holding my breathe that is for sure. But I don't view Obama as "The Problem." Many that preceded him hold responsibility, and I suspect that those who come after him will nudge the ball further down the bi paths to the edge of the cliff.

    As to the state of California (as well as many others) the same can be said for them.

    It's the generally accepted philosophy that has gotten us here. It will take a 180 degree change to straighten it out.

    Unlikely to happen.

    Sorry for getting long winded on this Free Thinker, guess I needed to vent.

  6. Interesting. I wonder what say, Texas, would look like.

  7. I gues that would make them morally broke as well.

  8. Infants and Mothers--African American Museum-- Asian Pacific Islander--Cemetery and Funeral--
    Children and Families--Children and Family Services--Status of Women--Child SupportServices(CDCSS)-- Foster Youth Help--Black Caucus --Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual
    (LGBT)--Native American.....

    Where is there any help for plain old white guys that work for a living? Damn, no wonder taxes are cripling in that liberal bastion. I'm SO GLAD I live in New Hampshire!
