Another Picture-Post

This picture provided courtesy the International Liberty Blog.

For those of you who live in California or are familiar with the economic troubles facing my state, this picture should make you laugh and cry.

Whether you’re Republican or a Democrat, you pretty much have to accept the fact that California is broken.  Endless levels of bureaucracy, wasteful spending and red-tape have led to the richest state in the union becoming more-or-less bankrupt.

The scope of this picture feels just about right to me.  Sometimes it seems like for every hard-working tax-payer in California, there are 10 people exploiting the system.

The financial crisis is forcing California State and local agencies to make some tough decisions. If things continue for much longer, there’s a real risk that we may have to lay off Jose.
