Governor Moonbeam has a Flashback
It has been said, in a less political correct era, that California is like a bowl of granola. Looking at some of their past political leaders, the old line about nuts and flakes comes into its own.
Speaking of healthy food, I cannot believe they’re letting this man have second bite at the apple.
Again, what can you say?
As a native Californian, I liked the line that it was like someone shook the country and everything loose landed in California.
What would we expect from a state whose major industries include wine and movies. One dulls judgment and the other is a fraud. Their one industry in which real people produce real and useful goods (agriculture) is currently being severely hampered by politically motivated water control measures.
Remember, this is the state about which we made the joke in the 1960s that newcomers would all open car washes and get rich washing each others' cars but nobody really needed to make or produce anything. California has been a fantasy land for over 50 years. Jerry Brown, a second generation spawn of the ruling elite, is well suited to guide California into bankruptcy's abyss.
I wonder, Plainvillian, where you think Silicon Valley is. And where Genetech, Google, Apple and similar high tech companies are.
Oh yeah, and California contributes 13% of the US GDP.
Sure, Sammy, but how deeply leveraged are they — the cities and towns are bankrupt, thinking they could replace taxes with borrowing, Apple does as little as possible there — the value-added manufacturing processes are all over-seas. Heck, SoCal is an artificial creation of dams and levees that has grown past the ability of the artificially boosted water supply to support.
One wonders how much of that 13% of GDP relies on such things as dot.com accounting and film accounting…
Yep Sammy and how many calories are in computer programs and processors?
Yep, you're always a great comeback. Meanwhile good old and powerful CT contributes $214B to the US GDP and CA contributes $1,846B to the US GDP. Putting down CA does not elevate CT in any bragging rights. But maybe you don't want to brag about CT.
