Problem #1 is that liberals pretend that illegals (orginal word removed) don't cost money.

Problem #2 is that firefighters make a ridiculous $200,000 a year in California at a time when nothing burns down. Teachers starts at $70k, then rise quickly into 6 figures. Cops make $150k. A prison GUARD at Chuckawalla state prison made $380k last year, probably sleeping for most of it. Who knows what the warden made (his name is Juan Salazar of course)??!! Etc., etc. You go, Governor!

Catching a gold basher

Among the few who did not give me a hard time about buying gold in 2001? My wife, thank you. When I told her I wanted to put 15% of our net worth into gold, and why, she responded, “Governments and their money come and go.”

She is Chinese. Not sure where it stands on the cultural to-do list, but protecting assets from desperate governments is up there, which explains the fact of a high savings rate in China and most Asian countries. Protection of the family's fortune from abuses by government, given an ignominious track record, is deeply embedded in Asian culture. A culture in continuous operation for a few thousand years can’t avoid accumulating wisdom.


Not so Larry and his editor who shoveled a few more loads onto the mountainous heap that has accumulated on the topic of gold over the years.

More and more investors are acquiring physical gold, or bullion, in the form of small bars the size of iPhones or coins like American Eagles and South African Krugerrands. Individuals’ bullion purchases almost doubled last year, amid apocalyptic panic over the financial system, to 862 metric tons. Lately, that panic-driven demand has given way to a more subdued, yet still potent, fear that stocks will suffer as the recession grinds on for a long time, so gold makes sense. At the same time, there’s a rising anxiety about inflation among people like Dr. Van Steyn, resulting from the Obama administration’s massive stimulus spending.
During the peak of the financial crisis last fall, I received calls from friends and associates from my industry looking to make gold purchases of $10 million or more. They were motivated as much by the emotional heat emitted by the meltdown as by the government’s reaction to the crisis.

Bank bailouts. Micro-management of the U.S. auto industry. A run up of the fiscal deficit to more than 12% of GDP only a year after the Congressional Budget Office forecast deficits in the range of 4%. A crackdown on offshore tax havens.

None of this inspires confidence in the management of USA, Inc. nor in the future value of common shares in the Company, the U.S. dollar.

They bought gold.

Are you suggesting that the public servants of California take a pay cut, or that CA stop helping the poor who come to them from Mexico, El Salvador, and Honduras?

Hmm – are you being sarcastic or just guessing?  Not sure where you got you numbers – but:

 

Average CA Firefighter earns: $43,000/year

CA teachers start at $32,000 and average :$49,000/year

Police officer average in CA: $43,000/year

Average Prison guard: $58,000/year

Average Prison warden: $72,000/year

The Govenor?  He makes $83,000/year.

 

FYI – my wife is a teacher in CA – she is at the top of her pay grade – she has a masters degree and has been teaching for 20 years.  She is not even close to 6 figure – it would be nice – but no – not in California.

Oh - and the comment about nothing buring in California - do you not read the news?
