WTF?


Source. NOTE - I took this post down to check my data, because clearly the date on the above image is like 10 months old. And I hate it when people give you old data.

Turns out - it's even worse than that. Latest available numbers from April 18 2017 for California is $2,818,578,004.47" Here. Ohio is paid off now.

Jerry Brown was bragging about what an awesome chrony capitalist he is. Here.

"Gov. Jerry Brown on Wednesday dismissed as “preposterous” suggestions that he broke the law by providing district-specific projects to lawmakers to win their support for his $52 billion road repair package with tax and fee increases.

“When somebody says, ‘Here is $10,000, I want your vote,’ you got bribery. It’s illegal,” Brown told reporters in Sacramento. “When someone says, ‘You know, I think this bill would be better if you included these projects or these ideas or these rules,’ we listen, because that’s democracy and that’s openness and that is a compromise spirit that makes democracies work.”


It's pretty much an open secret that he's trying to plug the BART budget by raising those taxes. So I decided to go over and see how much we still owed on the unemployment trust fund. Because I'm a curious person. And I'm not a math genius or anything, but is that almost 3 billion dollars?!? Which is fascinating because in 2015 we only owed about 11 million. Here.

Throughout the whole recession we only owed under 10 million a year. I don't know what happened last year, but wow - that is an insane jump. In 2014 we only owed about 6 million.
