“Throughout the country, 90 percent of cities and states are going to go bankrupt within the next five years, many of them sooner.” So says former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan.

Reason.tv’s Tim Cavanaugh sat down with Riordan to discuss state and local budget crises, public-sector unions, and why Riordan recently became a fan of current LA Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.

 

As the great Soviet Socialist State of California goes down in flames waiting for their 53 electoral college votes to be bought off by politicians redirecting tax money from the more prudent states, Washington voters have made a bid to redirect the flow of small companies from California to Texas. Although after reelecting “Moonbeam” Brown, that may be a harder sell.)

Ater having famously chosen wild poultry over a thriving timber industry (possibly the ultimate in renewable resources as well as a major export) Washington has decided not to punish, but rather encourage small business success by defeating, 65% to 35%, an initiative (prop 1098) that would have imposed a state income tax on the “wealthy” defined as >$200,000 (single), >$400,000 (married filing jointly).

Many small businesses that have been considering joining the Uhaul caravan to Texas, but have shuddered at moving to a totally foreign land (the wild west, dontcha know), now have the option of fleeing the non-workers paradise without giving up the friendly familiarity of the Left Coast. The only thing that might be a problem is the nagging feeling that as Admiral Ackbar said, “It’s a Trap!!”.

Nick Popaditch running for Representative for CA51 opens his debate with the incumbent Pelosi-bot Bob Filner by expressing his four qualifications for legislation.

1.What does his constituancy want?
2. Is it Constitutional?
3. Is it moral?
4. Is it ethical?

Now normally when a politician says anything remotely resembling this, I feel it is time to grab your wallet and jump into a bomb shelter. However Gunny Pop is a retired (not ex) Marine Gunnery Sergeant with a Silver Star, so I’m prepared to take him at his word (officers are occasionally political weasels but senior non-coms usually say exactly what they mean). And it is possibly the best concise statement of what a Representative should be doing that I’ve ever heard actually proposed.

Obviously “Moonbeam” is catering to the illegal vote. If this isn’t the final nail in the Brown campaign, California deserves what they get. This is the same incompetent hippie who said California needed more welfare and less jobs. California is broke due to public sector unions and their pensions, and now this dolt wants to give special consideration to criminals to attend college with state supported tuition rates. This should totally help the deficits.
