A matched set: California is broke and we know why

One of my friends posted a great chart on Facebook:

Rich states and poor states

And then I remembered a post at The City Square which explains how California ended up at the bottom of that chart.

Incidentally, if you’re interested in more California lunacy (and remember, as California goes so has gone the nation), check out Laer’s Crazifornia blog (and please consider buying his delightful, informative book, Crazifornia: Tales from the Tarnished State – How California is Destroying Itself and Why it Matters to America).

    Slave economies don’t tend to perform well. But if you ask a slave, he can only say that this is the best life he has ever had.
     
    And so it will be, even.

    I had some idiot inform me that California is not broke because there are still plenty of people who have money. So, bleed those people dry first and then California will be broke, I guess.

    99% of the money belongs to the ruling class. How they think the rulers will tax themselves out of their own retirement egg… well that’s just to be expected of slaves thinking they are capable of thinking and reasoning.
