California vs.Arizona


The Governor of California is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A  
coyote jumps out, bites the Governor and attacks his dog.  

1. The Governor starts to intervene, but reflects upon the movie "Bambi"  
and then realizes he should stop; the coyote is only doing what is natural.  

2. He calls animal control. Animal Control captures coyote and bills the  
State $200 testing it for diseases and $500 for relocating it.  

3. He calls a veterinarian. The vet collects the dead dog and bills the  
State $200 testing it for diseases.  

4. The Governor goes to hospital and spends $3,500 getting checked for  
diseases from the coyote and on getting his bite wound bandaged.  

5. The running trail gets shut down for 6 months while Fish & Game conducts  
a $100,000 survey to make sure the area is free of dangerous animals.  

6. The Governor spends $50,000 in state funds implementing a "coyote  
awareness" program for residents of the area.  

7. The State Legislature spends $2 million to study how to better treat  
rabies and how to permanently eradicate the disease throughout the world.  

8. The Governor's security agent is fired for not stopping the attack  
somehow and for letting the Governor attempt to intervene.  

9. Additional cost to State of California: $75,000 to hire and train a new  
security agent with additional special training re: the nature of coyotes.  

10. PETA protests the coyote's relocation and files suit against the State.  


The Governor of Arizona is jogging with her dog along a nature trail. A  
Coyote jumps out and attacks her dog.  

1. The Governor shoots the coyote with her State-issued pistol and keeps  
jogging. The Governor has spent $0.50 on a .45 ACP hollow point cartridge.  

2. The Buzzards eat the dead coyote.  

And that's why California is broke.

Up until this year you would be correct - our new govenor served Hot Dogs at his inaugeration lol
 Hot dogs you say?  Think the new Gov can fix this mess we have?
Not sure he can fix it but he is making some moves I like so far. Eliminating cell phones and cars for lower level folks. Cutting out some other fat and trying to get folks to extend some taxes.  Not sure if he will make it happen but he has always been very conservative financially.
