    Exactly!

      Why aren't they giving money to help the less fortunate? After all, that is fair and equal which is the sort of Progressive, Socialist crapolla they spew on a regular basis.
      They do. But who cares? No one should be shamed for not giving their money away.

        I feel sorry for the people of California, but not for the Morons that have been running that State recently, they wouldn't be elected Dog Catcher where I live.

          Is this true? I have never heard of it before. I live in California and don't want to donate money to the mostly poor red states. It's wrong on soooo many levels. My day is ruined.

            Why shouldn't California? The EU makes Germany prop up failed states like Greece all the time...

              And how does your concept fit into the discussion of California wildfires? Because gays make up a significant number of affluent voters in California, wildfires, too, flaunt the normal rules of civilized behavior and defy man-made conventions? [QUOTE]

              Ok MountainMan. I'm compelled to call you out on this one. Are you saying you have a problem with gays voting in California? How dare you. If they are willing to get off their butts, organize themselves, and vote more power to them. That's how democracy works!
              [QUOTE]
              Or are wildfires more closely related to illegals, encouraged to flout rules and behave as they please, supported by sanctuary status and large amounts of local funding from lefty-libbies who will not allow them to be legislated into being controlled or eliminated entirely?[QUOTE]
              I'm not a fan of illegals, sanctuary cities etc. But I don't think they are the reason California is having wildfires.
              Wrong target. You should be replying to Wolfhound since it is his concept we were discussing.

                  I have posted a couple of articles before talking about these things. I will try to see if I can find anything

                  p.s. quick search did not reveal anything. Perhaps, I posted that article in the other side I was using when I was inactive here. Anyway, I found something which does not lay in detail the different types of federal money going to and out of California but mentions the same thing I mentioned here

                  https://apnews.com/2f83c72de1bd440d92cdbc0d3b6bc08c

                  California fared a bit better than other blue states. It received 96 cents for every dollar the state sent to Washington.

                  On average, states received $1.14 in federal spending for every tax dollar they sent to Washington. That’s why the federal government has a budget deficit.

                    I'd like to see how AP breaks down spending returned to a state. For example, military and defense spending isn't dependent on the state, it's dependent on location relative to national defense. That is, states with strategic locations like harbors or good weather for training pilots get bases to fulfill those functions for defense. That money isn't dependent on what that state's taxpayers put in.

                    But, if it hurts red states and Republicans, my suspicion is that the MSM will dilute spending in that way in order to make red states and Republicans look bad.

                    California has seen both the DoD and defense industries flee the state to the maximum extent they can. So, California's share of defense spending has steadily declined. That's one example.

                      Well as a conservative living in the state of California, I gotta say this first, I love it here! The weather is fantastic. I'm about to finish school with an AA degree in computer programming and just recently started a new internship. So, everything is going great for me in California.

                      However, I am also seriously considering whether to move out to greener pasture, or in this case, browner pasture in Arizona. Texas is also in consideration as well, though its humidity is probably a deal-breaker despite Texas recently passed a bill that makes Texas a no state-income state.

                      I want to keep most of money from my paychecks, and I find it disturbing that for many California politicians, the idea of taking hard earned money excites them more than real sex.
