    Ha that could be said for any state! I wish the Fed would leave my state alone too. You are dreaming if you think the deficit will be wiped clean. The only way it will be wiped clean is if you hire Enron's former accountants or Obama does your books.

    Umm sorry you are just wrong.. Overseas the fads/trends start..

    Wow Americans started Blue Jeans.. please...

    Nice of you to avoid the number of people fleeing California.. A 100 year low of people leaving... Yeah that is a trend.. Face it.. Most people could care less about California.. The only reason it is even relevant is Hollywierd.. Even so, the crap they are pushing out is just freaking funny.. It must feel good to be laughed at..

    No, it can't be said for any state. California dwarfs its nearest competitor (NY) by 50 percent.

    Regarding the deficit, please direct your attention to the city of Oakland and what medical marijuana did for the city in regards to tax collection and permitting and other fees. Don't assume or guess, actually bother to click a few keys and check it out.

    Yea, Americans (immigrants) invented blue jeans (not denim) ... and guess where? LOL!

    Do you really require a link providing proof for the third item of which you were incorrect or are you content with this laughter you hear? Ah, what the hell, since we're having so much fun. Check out the top fads in our culture. How many came from abroad?

    I don't need to assume or guess. So the tax man comes in and gobbles of marijuana tax.. Do you think just because it is made legal people still won't thwart the tax?

    I know they did.. I was mocking you. Like one fad makes your statement true. I wonder wear denim came from... Too freaking funny. But yes the were made in Ca by Levi... Wow! slap yourself on the back for that one! I am wearing them now.. I am an American oh wait I am not obese..

    Still waiting for you to address the amount of people fleeing California...

    Still waiting for you to address the 26% of Europeans are Obese..

    So what part of the basic economics do you not understand that brings government out of a deficit? Check the link and see Oakland was in the red to the tune of $32 million. Now check the chart. In JUST the city alone, the pot brought in more than $35 million to the city coffers. Why do you suggest this can't occur on a larger government scale with such as the state?

    Regarding your "mocking." That's the problem with attempted insult. They often fail as we don't all subscribe to your linear thought processes. Some of us subscribe to proper debate etiquette and understand when one is attempting an insult they are actually insulting themselves, as exampled with your failed "mocking" attempt.

    See "Exposition" and "Subfallacies; Abusive."

    I avoided comment regarding your previous failed attempts at insult but your penchant for returning to such attempts confirms you are either frustrated, at a loss, distracted or unable to add to the topic. In any event, the link explains why people resort to insult during debate. Don't worry, I don't take it personal. Many people resort to insult in debate (and among these pages) and the majority do not know why they do it, either.

    Not sure what people fleeing California has to do with anything I mentioned. If you have a parable, please provide for it.

    You, as an American and not being obese, has little relation to the facts presented. The fact that you are not in the majority is cause for celebration. Enjoy.

    I mentioned nothing of Europeans and obesity. I corrected you by providing information indicating Americans are obese and conditioned to accept it as normal. You denied this phenomenon yet the mere fact the majority of Americans are overweight indicates a new accepted "norm" whether you want to admit or accept it.

    I am just done. Thank you for pointing out that Oakland has paid back .2% of the deficit. While it is a step.. I think my 2 month old daughter took a bigger step.
  • BTU smitty 2012/04/13 16:31:42 (edited)
    BTU
    Well, then, perhaps your 2-month-old can point out the part to you where the city received $35 million from the pot taxes, permitting, fees and other revenues whereas it owed $32 million, effectively equating much more than the .02 percent you pulled out of thin air to lend articificial support to your straw man argument. Denial ain't a river in Egypt.
  • smitty BTU 2012/04/13 16:36:27

    Never said it was. Now lets see last I checked there was more cities in CA than just Oakland... Even my 3 yr old knows that.

    Nah it isn't a river in Egypt but apparently it is in CA.

    Only I was specifically talking about Oakland and you took it upon yourself to use my analogy, cross it with another figure and bring other towns and cities into the equation, yet not supply this unknown information YOU entered as pertaining to your figure. In other words, you maliciously (by deliberate intent) attempted (but failed) to skewer the FACTS by incorrectly implying Oakland recompensated only .02 percent of what it owed by deliberate omission of the data YOU referred. Really.

    The gist of it is ... the pot angle worked for Oakland in regards to placing it in the financial black so once again, why do you feel this success can't occur on a large scale when it is proven to work for smaller government?
  • smitty BTU 2012/04/13 17:59:32
    smitty
    Well to take it back to my original post in response to yours.. I guess you believe the City of Okland California is the same as the general public of the United States?

    Well, to take it back to the original post, I brought up Oakland as an example of how the U.S. can wipe out its debt. So in that same vein, yes, why couldn't what worked in Oakland work in every other locale? Especially when one considers the lost revenue states can count due to pot as pot tops some states as its largest crop/product/export, exceeding that of corn, sugar, citrus, potatos and other commodities.
  • smitty BTU 2012/04/13 19:42:01
    smitty
    Well the pot supply will need to be the same in every locale. Next (same as the tobacoo tax) the politicians won;t be able to keep their greedy little mitts out of. The government sued tobacoo companies.. grab up a chuck of checks for medicare and then spent it on bridges to no where instead of the medicare they were suing because. That is why... You have one compnent that is a laughing stock.. the government.

    No question about it but it can bring a seriously needed influx of ... cash. The feds are the problem. I reiterate it over and over, it's not the party affiliation killing the country it's the fed's ability to have us divide and fight among ourselves. As long as we blame another, the government has us right where they want us ... focused on anyone and anything but them.

    No, most of us women are NOT anorexic stick people, tottering around on 6 inch heels. We are women who look like women.

    She might, however, be the typical hollyweird, and so, might be what SHE sees around her.

    Maybe if she lives in Japan...as the average woman weighs 115 lbs+. Everyone else is pushing 150+ not that I think she's qualified to give an opinion on us "common" people.

    She only represents a percentage of women that are her size. Most women are between a size 10-16. I don't think she has been in the double digits. I applaud her for trying to be average.
