Enthusiastic blowjob

I was reading an editorial in Los Angeles Times about the economic disaster the state of California is in and noticed that 10% of the state budget goes to pay for prisons. Presumably a huge chunk of the interns are locked up for drug related crimes, so if the victimless ‘crimes’ of making, selling and doing drugs were to be legalized several percent of the state budget, just as any country or state for that matter, could go to other things like lower taxes or better schools. If other victimless “crimes” like prostitution also was legalized, most of the state’s budget comes to prisons could be used elsewhere.

And if this was to be done it means that costly police officers wouldn’t be necessary to the same degree, bureaucrats could be cut down and so on.

Looking at the latest California budget I cannot help noticing completely idiotic things like’ Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control’ and ‘Alcoholic Beverage Control Appeals Board’. Just like in any socialized country loony things like this pops up. And the list just goes on: Office of Real Estate Appraisers, Air Resources Board, Department of Financial Institutions, Public Utilities Commission… why does this exist? No wonder the Governator are having a hard time balancing the budget.
And how funny isn’t this: Economic Recovery Financing Committee! Apparently costing the state $1,351,000 /year.

This is the collective stuff of nightmares and if you want to know why the state of California is in such big trouble and why they cannot and will not get out of it anytime soon, this is why. A deeply socialistic state with ever growing departments can never end up as anything else but a disaster. And it does not matter if they somehow temporarily manage to fiddle the numbers to cover up the many billions in defecit, they are going down and so is the rest of the United Socialist States of America.
