    California - One person's opinion - Probably has some merit

    * The Governor of California is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps out and attacks the Governor's dog, then bites the Governor.

    * The Governor starts to intervene, but reflects upon the movie "Bambi" and then realizes he should stop because the coyote is only doing what is natural.

    * He calls animal control. Animal Control captures the coyote and bills the state $200 testing it for diseases and $500 for relocating it.

    * He calls a veterinarian. The vet collects the dead dog and bills the State $200 testing it for diseases.

    * The Governor goes to hospital and spends $3,500 getting checked for diseases from the coyote and on getting his bite wound bandaged.

    * The running trail gets shut down for 6 months while Fish & Game conducts a $100,000 survey to make sure the area is now free of dangerous animals.

    * The Governor spends $50,000 in state funds implementing a "coyote awareness program" for residents of the area.

    * The State Legislature spends $2 million to study how to better treat rabies and how to permanently eradicate the disease throughout the world.

    * The Governor's security agent is fired for not stopping the attack. The state spends $150,000 to hire and train a new agent with additional special training re the nature of coyotes.

    * PETA protests the coyote's relocation and files a $5 million suit against the state.

    TEXAS

    * The Governor of Texas is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps out and attacks his dog.

    * The Governor shoots the coyote with his state-issued pistol and keeps jogging. The Governor has spent $.50 on a .45 ACP hollow point cartridge.


    * The buzzards eat the dead coyote.


    And that, my friends, is why California is broke and Texas is not

    You might call yourself "Rocket" but you prove yourself a fool by posting this garbage.

    California broke and Texas is not ??? Get real and start reading and thinking before making a dud rocket of yourself.

    Here is a good place to start businessinsider.com/texas-versus-califo... If you're too lazy to follow the whole thread I'll be a spoiler and tell you California won.

    Anyone who would even consider comparing the quality of life in Texas with that of California, concluding that Texas was a better place to live is beyond help. I wouldn't stop in Texas to take a shit much less live there (other than Big Bend National Park).

    Are there still some "normal" people in this country?? Comparing TX with CA is that now the favorite past time?

    I guess there are more important issues, like saving this country from becoming an "banana republic" with an "dictator" and cronies who lie all the time. But may be CA will separate from this Un-United country; so don't worry about them.

    California has a GDP that is nearly twice that of Texas.

    Pesky facts. I know you Donald supporters don't care much for them, but that doesn't mean that they still aren't facts.
