Why California is Broke!

Recommended Posts

This is true for Most States not just California)



The Governor of California is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps out, bites the Governor and attacks his dog.


1. The Governor starts to intervene, but reflects upon the movie "Bambi" and then realizes he should stop; the coyote is only doing what is natural.


2. He calls animal control. Animal Control captures coyote and bills the State $200 testing it for diseases and $500 for relocating it.


3. He calls a veterinarian. The vet collects the dead dog and bills the State $200 testing it for diseases.


4. The Governor goes to hospital and spends $3,500 getting checked for diseases from the coyote and on getting his bite wound bandaged.


5. The running trail gets shut down for 6 months while Fish & Game conducts a $100,000 survey to make sure the area is free of dangerous animals.


6. The Governor spends $50,000 in state funds implementing a "coyote awareness" program for residents of the area.


7. The State Legislature spends $2 million to study how to better treat rabies and how to permanently eradicate the disease throughout the world.


8. The Governor's security agent is fired for not stopping the attack somehow and for letting the Governor attempt to intervene.


9. Additional cost to State of California: $75,000 to hire and train a new security agent with additional special training re: the nature of coyotes.


10. PETA protests the coyote's relocation and files suit against the State.






The Governor of Texas is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A Coyote jumps out and attacks her dog.


1. The Governor shoots the coyote with her State-issued pistol and keeps jogging. The Governor has spent $0.50 on a .45 ACP hollow point cartridge.


2. The Buzzards eat the dead coyote.



And that's why California is broke.


Well, that explains it! It looks like most of the country is like California.

Don't see many of them around here but growing up in upstate New York we saw them all the time. They actually called them coy dogs because they were turned wild dogs and not afraid of humans. It was open season on them.

xrac, you are spot on. I believe people need their dignity. Capitalism works great, supply and demand. If there is a need, and a supply to satisfy the need, we have commerce. If we leave it to government, they subsidize ideas that do not work, like Amtrak, USPS, Solyndra, shrimp on treadmills, water skiing squirrels and a bazillion other "good ideas". If an idea or concept can not survive in the free market system, it is NOT a good idea. This is also a repugnant and foreign idea to many of todays special snowflakes who have yet to experience anything outside their parents basement.

      When it comes to advertising, there is an endless list of strategies.  And, it appears, that everyone has a different strategy and opinion about what works and what doesn't.  
      So, the question is: What's Your Most Effective Form of Advertising? 
    • By Joe Marconi
      Yesterday, around mid-day, I headed out to run a number of errands. I first stopped for a quick lunch, then on to the hardware store, the beer distributor (for Father's Day BBQ), the grocery store, and then I went to Staples to pick up a few shipping cardboard boxes.
      EVERY place I went to had a sign out in front: NOW HIRING! 
      I don't get it, where are all the workers?  The unemployment rate is at 3.6%. Does that really reflect the number of people out of work, or is the number higher when we factor in those that don't want to enter the workforce or those that have left the workforce? 
      Something doesn't add up.

      I asked Travis Troy, point-blank, what did it cost him to take his entire team to Vision this year. I talked to so many shop owners at Vision KC 2022 that closed their shops to take their entire team for some of the best training and networking both Technician, Service and Management. I stopped counting at 30 the number of shop owners who closed their shops there had to be 100 or more based on my simple survey results. Some strategies were to uplift and cross training their people into leadership roles by selecting that type of training. Travis and his partner Josh know they’ll get a huge return on their training investment. The message: get out of your comfort zone.

The second location is 13 miles away as a lease, previously evicted shop- 8 bay shop that was left a mess. Took 3 months to clean out and update. Took time to build but kept patience.  Capacity to want to grow and be better than the previous day- you’ll always face challenges, start every day fresh Met partner Josh in automotive electrical class in college- started working together on weekends repairing cars, the city shut them down. Travis worked 18 hour days for 6 years straight. Introduced to Vision by Tim Davidson- Tim came to shop with BG sales rep. Has been to Vision every year since.  Closes shop to come to Vision- don’t look at it from a money aspect, you can’t afford not to come. Shop owners come back to shop invigorated and refreshed, but what about your team? It’s time to have the whole shop on board and set up for the rest of the year. Average $20,000 investment to bring the whole team of 14 total including Travis and Josh.  Holding everyone accountable as 2-way street Breaking and rebuilding process constantly- continue to grow, never be afraid to try Advice- stay humble, tomorrow isn't guaranteed, stay humble, have defined roles, never compare yourself to others because you’ll never be equal. Get involved in an association AND coaching company. Succession plan preparation. Started business not just for them (Travis and Josh) but for their families and their client’s families  Tale of Two Cities- located on the property of 2 cities, google sets their address depending on where the customer is located. They are able to capitalize on 2 cities at once.
