I was listening to the radio one day this week. The program was about politics. I wasn’t paying all that much attention but one sentence caught my ear. The person speaking was from California and said they couldn’t do whatever the topic was because “we don’t have any money.”
I immediately thought, “Why not?” I know the economy has been rough but have things really been that much more difficult in California? Don’t the residents pay state taxes like we do here in Missouri?
What kind of industries are there in California? I think of farming, the military (big base at San Diego for example), the whole Silicon Valley thing, logging, wineries, movie making, etc. Seems to me that some of the people involved should be making money and paying taxes.
