Quite right. Purchase of all that racing stuff was damn expensive, but more reasonably priced "decent" yachts can be found. Then, as I said, you can "travel for free", as in no gas.

Really, Rob, do I have to put the small print in to make you happy?

Oops--California Audit Finds Tons of “Lost” Cash
Townhall.com ^ | August 5, 2012 | Ann-Marie Murrell
Posted on August 5, 2012 7:14:19 AM PDT by Kaslin

Last May, Governor Jerry Brown threatened to close 70 state parks in order to help balance the budget and plug the holes of the sinking ship that is California.*

*

Immediately, park-loving activists went to work and through bake sales and donations, the public helped save 69 of the 70 parks.

But then, oops---California auditors recently looked under their government couch cushions and located over $286 million in “misplaced” funds.

From the L.A. Times (emphasis added):* “Gov. Jerry Brown's administration on Friday announced that $119 million more in untapped money was found in a sweeping audit of state accounts, bringing to more than $286.5 million the sum lawmakers were unaware of as they repeatedly cut government services…The additional money that lawmakers were unaware of includes funds for healthcare programs, reimbursement of crime victims and cleanup of underground petroleum tanks.”

“Unaware of”??* Even if I won the lottery and became a gazillionaire, I can’t imagine not being aware of $286.5 million.*

A Mercury News review found at least 17 accounts that “appeared to have significantly more serve cash than what individual departments reported to the finance department.”*

This sudden bounty of cash is causing a few more headaches for Brown.*

For one, the activists, local governments and non-profits that collected money to save the state parks are now asking for refunds.

"There was a sense of betrayal," said Carolyn Schoff, head of the California League of Parks Associations, an alliance of nonprofits. "We're the ones in the trenches raising funds for state parks, and now there's a dark shadow over us."

Another problem is the obvious—how in the world can one state “misplace” so much money?* Lots of finger wagging is happening, with each department scrambling to place blame elsewhere.

One of the largest discrepancies occurred within the Public Utilities Commission, which regulates telecommunications and energy services.

A spokeswoman for the commission said the accounting discrepancies are probably only "recording errors."

Sigh.

Democrat lawmakers are saying the audit “would not have changed how the state pieced together its budget this year”—yet these same lawmakers have used the funds to pay bills and according to the Times, the Legislature now owes them $4.3 billion (with a ‘b’), “a nearly sixfold increase since 2008.”*

These major monetary discrepancies perfectly explain why Republicans are constantly screaming and shouting about “big government”.* Any state that is so out of control that it can misplace enormous amounts of money—making politicians and Union fat cats richer and richer while her cities are filing bankruptcy--needs a major dose of checks and balances.

The good news in all of this is that perhaps these mishaps will result in some job openings to help boost California’s rising unemployment rate.* I suggest they start by hiring a few good accountants--and maybe an Oversight Committee or two.*

On a personal note--because I live here in La La Land-- I remain ever hopeful that the good citizens of California will finally see the light and will stop voting for the same old Democrats who seem intent on running this beautiful state further into the abyss.

I thought you were a Democrat.

No worries.

Being a fellow "realist" and political supporter should I chalk up the additional $25,000+ that the wonderful state of California claims I owe for last year as a "recording error"?

Is there such a thing as a "Tax Bubble"? My gut tells me CA will soon find out.

What happens when the average Joe can no longer pay the taxes that the people voted for? Can you say Argentina? Greece? Russia? Roman Empire?

Fuck it all. The U.S. is well beyond the 200 year expiration date of all previous democracies. Live large. Live beyond your means. The world will end in a couple of weeks anyhow.

The Grinch

Peter is one heck of a rider! But remember, the Christmas spirit is the Grinch's nemesis.
Ive been inspired by Peter on more than a few occasions!
"Youre a mean one Mr Grinch!"

Yep, and the typical "modern" hegemonic lifespan is about 200 years for sure also.

I'm thinking about taking my winter vacation in Har Megiddo for a front row seat of the fireworks once Syria starts using their chem stockpile.

I never thought she was even remotely sexy, much less, hot.

Fuck the royals and their antiquated, yet soon to be short lived place in the British tabloids. Theres no room in modern society for a blood sucking figure head parasite like a royal family.
Let them get jobs and pay taxes like everyone else.
