Hmmm... I thought having our local Govenator beat up Bill Gates and the dude who owns Walmart for their lunch money would be a good start.

I've got a good idea...give Gene Hackman some acid, get him to pull a Lex Luthor and blow California into the Pacific. No more problem!

Hey! That's a great idea. Er... Wait a minute. Let me get my arm floaty things first. Oh! And I need to buy up my Otisburg property also...

While I don't think legalizing gambling is the greatest of ideas, there's something to it. Certainly, the rush of cash spent in Indian casinos and in Vegas instead of locally can't be super for the economy. I'm always for legalizing drugs and prostitution, whether there's an economic need or not, so that's got my vote.


I'm going to give my patented Supply Side answer (It's almost an obligation!): The biggest problem in California is the tax structures that discourage industry and business. We've got a small number of high profit making companies (the only ones that can afford to operate in California), and a whole ton of service industry, and nothing in between. At some point, you've got to have actual businesses that make actual products in order for your economy to survive. California's only "products" are vague at best. Intellectual properties that are actually built elsewhere. Film industry (more IP really if you think about it). Biotech (again, more ideas then real production). That's because the state taxes heavily on materials both on import and export. So making cars, or computers, or tomahawk missiles (oddly developed here, but built elsewhere) is extremely cost-ineffective. We have those businesses because you can't tax the import of an idea (not yet anyway).


We've got an entire economy made up of the equivalent of phone santizers and people wonder why there are problems...

Let's be careful though. We don't know what one could contract from some virulent telephone (/nod to Douglas Adams' grave.)

Odd. Usually when the word "Legalize" comes out the mouth of a Californian, the word "Marijuana" comes afterwards.

To all you newer posters, I'll give you a short lesson. This is what we like to call a troll. Now that you have all popped that proverbial cherry, please don't feed the trolls.

As for gbaji, he's excused, he can't help himself.

You have slain a_record_executive!
You have looted A small pouch of cocaine and A Rolex Wristwatch.

You say "Hail, Pawnbroker Ricardo"
Pawnbroker Ricardo tells you "I will give you 250 dollars for the A Rolex Wristwatch."
You have recieved 250 dollars from Pawnbroker Ricardo.

Wait...doesn't that sound like DopeWars?
