I think California should balance the budget by offering 9/11 memorial license plates and saying the proceeds go to victims' families, but then instead of it going to that just use the money to pay for regular California overspending.
The California Public Employees' Retirement System said Bruce Malkenhorst Sr, would now receive $9,654 a month, after the pension fund preliminarily concluded that his $45,073 pension was "illegally based on unpublished pay rates, overtime and an inflated longevity allowance."
Still 10k a month? are u farking kidding me?
His pension should be reduced further to compensate taxpayers for this fraud.
This is what happens when you let politicians make the budget instead of .. you know.. accountants. Who actually know how to balance a budget.
Politicians don't get to make the budget in CA. We have term limits, so by the time the politicians actually learn the game, they're kicked out on their @sses. The only ones who stick around in Sacramento long enough to learn how to work the system are the lobbyists, and consequently they play a key role in writing the budget.
Also, don't forget we have a 2/3 majority to do anything money-wise in CA. Imagine if you had a room full of screaming 10 year olds. Your job is to order pizza, so you ask the kids what they want. Every kid is going to want something different. Now imagine you have to get 2/3 of the kids to agree one just one pizza order, and if you miss that 2/3 agreement by just one kid, then you start over.
Sounds like a nightmare, huh?
Oh did he?
No, he didn't. California is full of whining, complaining, entitlement-minded conservatives, who constantly threaten to move to right-wing paradises like Utah or Nevada or Montana, but who never manage to find the $19.95 for a U-Haul.
