Solving California's Money Crisis


You have probably heard by now that California is in a world of hurt due to a budget crisis. I don't want to get into a long story about the why or how it happened, but it pretty much boils down to: more money is going out than is coming in. When that happens, you gotta start spending less money.
Last week the Governator OK'd the budget and there are big cuts all over the place in addition to the cuts already made. Furlough Fridays for state workers, less hours at the DMV, programs and funding cuts--you name it.
California State Parks were one of the areas that didn't fare well in the budget cuts. So much so, that some State Parks will probably be closing. Only 13 of 279 of the parks are self-sustaining, the rest rely on the state for funding.
One of the things being suggested is partnering with industry as a way to regain the necessary funding. With that in mind, those two clever guys--Dale and John--put on their thinking caps and came up with these possible partners for some of the California State Parks. They included some National Parks too just in case Uncle Sam tries to do the same thing.

That is so sad about the State Parks. Arnold should be carrying a red wood.

Ok, I stopped at McDonner's Lake, that pretty much grossed me out. Pretty sure that would not be good for McDonald's business. Unless of course their patronage knows next to nothing about American history, which is a good chance.

Everything's being cut, and unfortuanetly the parks just aren't as important as things like fire departments and the police. Mr. Trizzle's job is still only temporary, no benefits, no overtime pay (though he has to work it); decision time for the county again soon. Sometimes I think the whole state should just fall into the ocean.

Hey you, quit noodlin' and jeering at Manny and stop by the curtain.

Too funny! :)

For some reason "Malibu Barbie State Beach presented by Mattel" made me laugh.

It does suck about the state parks--I love state and national parks so much.

GR--yeah, the state definitely needs something. What, I don't know. But I sure would hate to see it fall into the ocean! We just all have to work together and make it golden again! Dale just went on a camping trip to Donner Lake last month....he had a such a great time, I want to go there now.
MHP--The Malibu Barbie one was actually my contribution!

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Nowadays, I feel good, I begin to get real money.
It gets down to select a proper partner who utilizes your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, parts and divides the profit with me.

You can get interested, if there are such firms? I have to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:
