    As for the nearly 3 billion dollar negative deficit, I'd give that back to every TAX payer in the form of a CHECK!

    Its not a bad Idea for China, Russia, India and Brazil to explore other reverse currencies, sort of as a hedge against their US Dollar holdings.

    Without raising taxes, its almost impossible to close the budget gap. California just raised taxes by $13 billion a couple of months ago during the last budget negociations.

    True, you DO have to raise taxes at some point. But you do it in places where it SHOULD be raised. I raised the shit out of the gas tax on them. If anyone should be driving PRIUS's 24 by 7, its these knobs in Calif!!!

    You also have to CUT taxes in certain areas, specifically on small businesses. You also DO NOT raise alcohol and tobacco taxes. These are short term gains that punish the poorest. You also have to make HUGE cuts in wasteful spending. I nuked the shit out of these ridiculous life long pension and dental/health plans for state works. Get a f'ing job and pay for this stuff like the rest of us. No reason we should be paying 1.2 billion so teachers can have nice teeth till the day they die.

    Its unbelievable where that state wastes money. I kept money where it belonged. With public services like police, fire, and education. I took it away from places like illegals and welfare. I added revenue by selling royalties to oil companies in exchange for drilling rights. That new exploration will not only yield royalties but increased tax revenue on the Calif gas tax!

    Raising the tax on gas is a good one. Roads and bridges cost a lot of money. and the highway funds are running out of money. People can always cut back on gas by driving less, taking the bus or using smaller cars.

    I favor raising the tax on alcohol and tobacco. Anyway that has money for alcohol and tobacco can spare a few dollars to pay their fare share to support public services. Also in a state like California, alcohol and tobacco tax is probably the only tax that the majority of illegal aliens oay.

    There should be a tax on bad movies too. Buy something at the store that's crap, take it back,get your money back. Food at a restaurant is crap, get a free meal. Movie sucks, you don't get d%ck.

    I'm all in favor of a hollywood tax. While were at it, tax bad taste too... These crappy pads that the folks on MTV show off with their pimp cars that look like shit. Tax tacky!

    Hell, tax stupid too. That would cover just about every major sporting event.

    Taxing the sporting events and the hollywood taxes are great ideas. Let's add to that a tax on soda and salted snacks :D

    Money is in the mind of the beholder. It is just a concept. Even gold is just a mineral in the ground, not really "worth" anything except as a trinket.

    The US will never go into total economic collapse because money is not only arbitrary, but plastic, in all sense of the word.

    You obviously didn't look at the site properly nor read the articles. The site is NOT based on US collapse but nice guess. Most articles are a collection and analysis of various articles from different sources.
