The State of California’s budget crisis is over, somewhat.
The state has been paying with IOUs. I guess that’s why they need a former muscle-building terminator as governor. In case anybody complains about the IOUs, he can explain things to those girly-men whiners, if you get my drift.
The state now has a budget and the money should soon start flowing (or is that trickling?) again. Nonetheless, there are still big problems in California. The state had to make big cuts to a number of programs, including in the vital areas of health and education. And, even then, California still has to borrow a couple of billion dollars to close the budget gap.
The people of Shalampax, on the other hand, are rolling in cash thanks to revenue from our cult religion and spam companies. Therein lies the solution to California’s fiscal problems.
Shalampax is a painfully overcrowded nation. With 4,242 people packed onto a tiny speck of an island, we all feel terribly cramped. I think you see where this is going.
