Gov Brown knows something we all need to realize --- when California goes bankrupt, as it surely will, then CA will run to DC for a bailout, and the productive states (think Texas) will end up bailing out the unproductive (all liberal states). No wonder why Brown is so confident...he wins either way.Liberals always do,

He could try, but I think there would be a revolution that would make the civil war look like a pillow fight.

Though its getting more likely by the hour, I don't think a new civil war is at 50/50 yet. But if it happens it will indeed be nasty. The first civil war was fought mostly over a small geographical area. Any next one will be fought on doorsteps coast to coast.

I don't know where you live, Context, but here in Florida any Congressman who voted for a California bailout would be committing career suicide.

It'd be suicide here in Oklahoma, too.

We have a balanced budget amendment in our state Constitution and live within our means.

If the California loons can't do the same, it's not our responsibility to save them from their own stupidity!

Critics of a free market economy are also critics of individual responsibility. Because they believe in higher taxes, centralized control, and absolute intolerance to other viewpoints, they find themselves reducing free market ideas to that of human flatulence.

At least the current governor of California--Jerry Brown--did this week.

The seventy-four year old was quite taken aback. He was asked by California media this week if Texas Governor Rick Perry's recent poaching expedition would matter much to the state's future. His reply was direct.

"It's not a serious story, guys. It's not a burp. It's barely a fart," replied Brown.

Maybe Governor...
