Boy to Father: "Dad, was Detroit really a city?"
Father to boy: "Nobody knows, son. Nobody knows..."

91 percent of all farmers and ranchers do not collect government subsidy payments in California, according to USDA (fruits don't count for subsidies).
California is the top agricultural producing state and as well as the largest food processing employer in the United States, shipping $50 billion worth in food products
Fresno County leads the rest of the state and the nation in food production, and Fresno County alone shipped $770 million of preserved fruits and vegetables
that's not federal aid, that's subsidies on a yearly basis, regardless of disaster. you're in florida easy, your farmers are in the same boat. almost none of them get aid, because almost none of them are growing corn. and floridas public education is as wrecked as californias is.

Both parties are the problem. The Democrats propose quickly over spending and over taxing and the republicans of late propose increasing spending and freezing taxes. Neither party truly supports contitutional values because they are both still ultimately in the business of government. Why would either side propose to carve government down to size when it derails the gravy train?

http://www.census.gov/Press-Release/...ts/011813.htmlPer capita spending among states was highest for Louisiana ($16,263). Mississippi was second ($14,516), followed by Alaska ($13,805). The states that received the lowest per capita distribution of federal funds were Nevada ($5,852), Utah ($6,162) and Minnesota ($6,175).
California received 10.3 percent of the total distribution of federal expenditures while Texas received 6.8 percent, followed by New York at 6.2 percent.
So saying california covers 10% of the taxation budget (which is always less than federal spending) and recieves 10% of federal budget means that california contributes more to our deficit
