Big Surprise



Sorry for the extended vacation, been busy at work lately.

So rumor has it that the State of California is about to go bankrupt. Citizens there don't want a tax increase to pay for the budget shortfalls, but the Congressmen and Government don't want to cut their programs and departments to find the money either. So when (and it is when, not if) the State of California turns to the federal government for help, will Uncle Sam bail this state out? I think we all know the answer is yes, but should we bail that state out? What happens when Michigan, Florida, and Arizona all get in line next? Are we going to perpetually continue to bail companies, states, and individuals out of their financial problems?

  1. Okay, now I'm ready for Texas to secede. If we're gonna be asked to pay for California's bs, we're outta here.

  2. Yes, to all of the above. They will bail them out and anyone that follows. I don't agree with any of it, but nothing has shown it will happen any different. With all this bail out crap I sure wish they could use some of that money to help those of us having problems with employment!

  3. Hello?!?! Has California not heard the "Cash 4 Gold" commercials? The state with all the gold needs to send off for one of those insured pre-stamped envelopes and they'll get their money in less than a week. The San Francisco football team will change its name to the 09'ers. Dummies.

  4. I'm pretty sure most people in California already know how to fish. I'm not sure what that would accomplish.

    And Jake, if you go that long without posting a blog again...lets just say...I hope your family has moved out of Texas by then.

  5. what in the sam hill did they spend it on? the war on weed? those stupid commercials with all the celebrities? fancy street signs? i mean really. also, i think to say MOST people in California know how to fish is quite an exageration. i'm guessing people in Compton can't fish for s***. unless by fish you mean collect welfare. Go Rangers.

  6. Well, I am sure they will get a bail out if it comes to that...but it will come with a price. After all, a lot of states turned down huge chunks of cash from the goverment recession plan at the start of 09. Texas was one of those states. One of the reasons we turned it down is that it required changes to our unemployment laws. So, I am sure the land of Movie stars, Fairy Tails, and earth quakes will pay in some form. How ever, I am not for the bail out...just throught I would post that.

  10. Jake, while we are on the subject of bail outs, I thought it was interesting you were so quick to ask for a bail out when you were too busy to post a blog! I ignored your email asking me to prepare a guest post becuase I decided you should learn to stand on your own.

  11. I heart you so much Nancy.

  12. Yeah Nancy and look where that almost got Jake! He had nothing but disgruntled blog-viewers who started to lose faith in the system, realized the true fraility that is the Jakeconomy, and will be reluctant to post in the future! It looks like we are getting over that big bump but it was almost disastrous!!!
