Republik of Kalifornia

Welcome to the Peoples' Republik of Kalifornia. Please have your checkbooks and credit cards ready as there is now a tax... er... fee... required for entry into this state. With today's ever rising health care costs, it became necessary to come up with new and creative ways to get the money to pay for all of the illegal... er... undocumented workers who mean so much to our flourishing economy. Failure to pay this tax... er... fee will result in severe penalties that we haven't decided on yet, but we're sure you'll comply anyway to avoid it. Make checks out to "Arnold Schwarzenegger", or if you prefer, to the "Kalifornia Communist Party". Remember, it's for the children!

So Arnold finally did it. He's finally revealed himself to be a communist. There are those of us who wondered from the beginning if this was worth the risk. Wondered in the backs of our minds if ousting Gray Davis was the right move. At first, Arnold did some wonderful things. He repealed an illegal car tax. Got us out of a huge deficit. He fought hard against tax increases and was a strong supporter of more limited government. It looked like we were on the right track to recovery. Then the voters soundly rejected his aggressive reforms, and something in him snapped.

Ever since he's grown more and more liberal. Social program after social program has been steadily expanded. The welfare state grew by leaps and bounds. We were repeatedly told "it's all for the children". The only part he's failed to mention until this last week or so was that it's all for the ILLEGAL children. Arnold has become a bleeding heart supporter of the ongoing invasion from Mexico. But even all of that was nothing compared to the latest round of ridiculousness.

The plan is simple: Every person in California should have health care insurance. On the surface, this seems great and wonderful. Scratch the surface. Underneath lies the ugly truth. The plan includes coverage for the illegal aliens as well. At state expense. That's right, you and me, and every other hard working tax paying citizen of the state. And it's not voluntary either. This plan would be mandatory, just like the debacle with auto insurance. If you don't qualify for the coverage on your own, you can apply to a gigantic state fund and get it from the government. You will need to pay a small premium of course. Employers who have more than 10 people working for them will be required by law to provide this coverage. If they cannot, or are unwilling to do so, then the alternative is a tax of 4% on the gross payroll of the business to contribute to the state fund. So much for Arnold's business friendly stance.

So you better start practicing your Russian... er Spanish... Because you're going to need it. Welcome to the new Republik.

This is why my genius plan for solving the illegal problem will work.

Step one Trade California to Mexico for a border fence

Step two Place illegals on the Mexicalifornia side of the fence

Step three Actually enforce labor laws

       
Enforcement is really the answer to the whole thing. But with communists like Arnold in power and a willing democratically controlled legislature, that's just not going to happen. Sad really, but that's pretty much where we are now.

       
But but... then we'd still have California and I really don't want California ;p You can move up to Oregon or Washington.... Come on think of how much better the country would be without California.....

       
There was once a plan being floated to break California into two states, north and south. It may well be time to try that again, but it would be an extreme long shot and would basically fuck southern California in the ass forever. I'd of course be seeking to get out of here quick if it ever happens.
