    Funny...Cali and NY are run by libs and failing...Texas is thriving under conservative leadership.
    Liberalism is a mental disorder.

    Have you read that book Artie, friend of mine let me borrow, but there is a book on that very subject. Its hard to defend or argue since i feel a lot of disorders are used or "applied" out of context. ITs a heck of a read tho. You have to be in a mindset to read it because a lot understanding has to go into it.

    How long before $25 billion gets sent to Calif. from the federal government? Obama and the Dems will make sure Calif. gets its money soon. And then it will be business back to usual, unfortunately.

    Actually NY's budget is balanced and social programs did not get cut. We're doing fine.

    If by getting taxed to death is your definition of doing fine,then you are doing awesome.

    Having lived in NY for 7 years I can tell you that Temo is full of crap as regards NY doing fine.

    Fools are always the last ones to discover the truth of their surroundings.
    I mean no offense by it...it's an old dominican proverb.

    yahoo news is liberal? How can that possibly be, They don't even DO THEIR OWN NEWS. Everything on yahoo news is from the AP. Everything.

    burmaland must be an awfully interesting place to be.

    Don't know how it was accomplished, but according to this site, NY's budget is indeed balanced.

    2009-10 Enacted Budget At a Glance

    I don't know that interesting is the word I'd use.

    I don't know, but if I had to guess I'd say no. News off the AP wire-to-yahoo page is most likely automated.

    Yes, Yahoo leans to the left. They frequently link directly to Huffpo and the NY Times, but not National Review or Weekly Standard. Just the other day they posted an article titled "Cheney's speech contained omissions, misstatements," which was the most insanely biased "news" story in quite some time. They didn't even have the good sense to file it under "analysis." They're just like any other MSM gatekeeper: unapologetically liberal to the nth degree.

    Everything I said is true. Yes, taxes are high and I'd love to pay less, but I'm a 23 year-old in an entry-level job just out of college and I get by OK.

    Most NY'ers are fine with the government, though I think most of us would have actually preferred Spitzer stay on as Governor. Bloomberg has been an excellent mayor for NYC and has the support of most of the city.

    But hey, don't let the truth hit you on the way out.
