(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Fornicalia is Greece:


From Dale Franks at Questions & Observations:

Californians

The list of odd things Californians believe that are directly contradicted by observable reality is, of course, far to long to be described here. A representative sample, however, includes:

  • Maintaining a permanent class of illegal immigrants in modern-day helotage will not reduce employment among the minority citizenry. Giving them full access to state benefits and education will not strain the schools, medical system, or state budget.
  • California must have the strictest environmental, tax, and employment regulation possible. This will not result slower economic growth, or a business exodus to another state. Similarly, stringent environmental regulation for the benefit of small fish or birds, and significantly reducing the water available for irrigation, will have no effect on farming in the central valley, and, hence, agricultural prices paid by consumers.
  • It is completely possible to allow state employees to retire as young as 50, with an annual pension payment 85% of their highest salary, and fully meet our pension obligations, because the Dow will be at 24,000 by 2009, and 24,000,000 by 2099, thus making the latest round of pension increases perfectly sustainable through investment.
  • If we’re taxing California workers 10% of their income, and we have a $16 billion budget deficit, the problem is that we obviously aren’t taxing enough. We should, therefore, tax higher income earners much more, because they can never leave California and move to Arizona. Or Texas.

California is just Greece with movie stars.

Yes. Fornicalia is wantonly destroying businesses.

I agree with Mr Frank with one exception: I worked 35+ years in law enforcement, in Fornicalia, to acquire the retirement I paid for. My retirement isn't freely "paid for" by my department. What I may get, I worked for. And I predicated my retirement upon plans I signed up for 30+ years ago.

That said, Fornicalia still doesn't "get it." It's Leftist governor, Jerry Brown, doesn't "get it."

One possible shining light?

The "pushback" on Fornicalia's LOSER "bullet train."

Because, yeah, after all, I want more gangbangers from SoCal to be able to bring their violent bullshit into NorCal and into the counties that still haven't completely fallen prey to the Leftists. [Like Nevada County, Placer County, Sierra County, Glenn, Humboldt, Del Norte.] Quickly and cheaply. At a loss. Paid for, times over and again (when its admin realizes it's a fiscally failing venture) by the Fornicalia Hosts. For Parasites.

But: did I find this information in US news? Of course not! As I've submitted for quite some time: if you want to discover what's actually occurring in the world, check the UK media.

To wit -- from the UKTelegraph.com:

Buyers' remorse for California's 'bullet train to nowhere'

California voters are experiencing buyers' remorse over a $68.4 billion (£44.4 billion) high speed rail project which critics say risks becoming a "bullet train to nowhere."

Ambitious plans for a fast track linking Los Angeles and San Francisco at speeds of up to 220mph in just over two-and-a-half hours were slimly approved by 53 per cent in a statewide ballot in 2008. That allowed the state to raise $10 billion from bonds and secured an injection of $3.5 billion in stimulus money from the Obama administration. There is currently no direct train route between the two.

Construction is expected to begin later this year in the middle of California's Central Valley near Merced, a town of 80,000 people known for having one of the highest home foreclosure rates in America.

The plan calls for around 300 miles of track to be laid south from there over the next 10 years to reach the northern outskirts of Los Angeles. A northern link from the Central Valley to San Francisco would not be completed until 2028.

The project is still $54.9 billion short of what is needed, raising fears that the state will be unable to find the funds to finish later sections, and could be left with a futuristic rail line linking minor cities and farming communities.

Amid disillusion over the cost and handling of the project, voters have now turned against what was supposed to become a symbol of state pride.

Imagine that. What's left of the actually sane taxpayers in the state are beginning to question the HSR plan.

A new poll shows almost three fifths would oppose the bullet train and halt public borrowing if given another chance to vote.

Almost seven in 10 said that, if the train ever does run between Los Angeles and San Francisco, they would "never or hardly ever" use it.

Not a single person said they would use it more than once a week, and only 33 per cent said they would prefer the bullet train over a one hour plane journey or seven hour drive. The cost of a ticket, estimated at $123 each way, also put many off. Jerry Brown, California's Democrat governor, has championed the project as a way to create jobs and is backed by unions. The 74-year-old governor has been personally committed to a high speed rail link since the 1970s.

But he is trying to convince voters to spend billions on a train while at the same time proposing tax increases and austere public spending cuts, including a five per cent pay cut for state workers, to deal with a budget deficit that has ballooned to $16 billion.

Because Jerry Brown is insane.

And some of his former Leftists may actually be starting to wake up.

Greece WILL fall.

And so WILL Fornicalia.

More pointedly, in an illustration, here is what I don't want imported to my north from LA:

Over the years I've enjoyed visiting California but no more. Now I only go when someone is paying me to be there.

My daughter in law loves all things Disney. Shortly after my son got back from A-stan, they had a family vacation at Disneyland. My son said he didn't relax anywhere in Anaheim outside the DL grounds. His internal radar was constantly pinging. None of the children were allowed away from an adult.

WSF, I can't refute your stance.

Let me be blunt:

Anaheim is in the midst of LA Gangbanger Centrale.

And Disneyland is SURROUNDED.

Which is why DL relies so MUCH upon its tunnels and back doors.

Even then, it FAILS.

Frankly, I have NO feelings for what Cali has become, they did it to themselves...

And if the rest of this nation isn't careful, if we don't get that Kenyan son of a buck loving bitch OUT of office, the whole nation will soon follow..

Deo vindice.

Illinois is facing disaster.
The State can no longer pay its retirees the pensions it promised because it refused to cut back on entitlements and instead raided the retiree's pension fund in order to continue racing toward the cliff.
If I were a State retiree I'd either get a gun or a pitchfork and go lookin' for some guilty legislator.
Problem is, this has been goin' on so long many, many of the culprits have assumed ambient temperature.

More States than we can imagine are facing this problem...
Wisconsin is having a "discussion" about it right now.
It's gonna be VERY interesting to watch it unfold.

Yes, TF, they did. They used to be so fat in terms of budget, that LEGAL residents had their tuitions for college PAID if you attended the CSU system. We had the finest education in the 50 states.

Not now. No more. The parasites, Fornicalia decided, are much MORE important than the Hosts -- the Taxpayers. And we willingly invite ILLEGALS to sup from the trough of Free Cheese.

Greybeard: and I can't yet afford to retire -- and I too am going to be a bit "miffed" -- ahem -- if I don't get what I WORKED for.
