yeah that's really ****ed up. jackson's estate or family should be the ones paying for it. if they didn't want to, then they should have held it privately.

Wasn't that actually an attempt to make some money? I heard they made some bucks out of that.

Texas and Cali are a lot a like anyways...Both have variety of landscapes and both have oil and both have big economies.

Except one is "mainly" conservative and the other is "mainly" liberal.

Both have their share of shythole towns as well.

Both have Sea Worlds

Yeah the furloughs kinda suck, but c'mon, if that's your example as to why our state is in the s**t then you're not very creative. We can't even budget, for f**k's sake.

Cali >>> Texas. Not that I don't enjoy my visits to my family in Texas, but as far as importance to the country, it's not even close. California has the most important ports, 3 of the largest cities, a huge amount of farm land and copious natural resources. Assuming California could secede (Which couldn't happen, but bear with me), it could, in theory, but a successful independent nation. It has the population and massive economy necessary.
