California vs. Arizona

The governor of California is hiking with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps out, bites the governor and attacks his dog. The governor calls Animal Control. Animal Control captures the coyote and bills the state $300 for testing it for disease and $800 for relocating it. The governor calls a veterinarian. The veterinarian collects the dead dog and bills the state $500 for testing it for disease. The governor goes to the emergency room to have his wounds cleaned and bandaged. The hospital bills the state $3,500. The nature trail is shut down for six months while Fish and Game conducts a $750,000 study to make sure the area is free of dangerous animals. The state spends $300,000 implementing a Coyote Awareness Program for area residents. The state legislature spends $2,000,000 to study better ways to treat rabies. The governor’s security agent is fired for not having prevented the attack. The state must spend $95,000 to hire and train a new security agent with additional special training regarding coyotes. PETA protests the coyote’s relocation and files suit against the state, costing taxpayers $4,500,000 in legal expenses.

The governor of Arizona is hiking with her dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps out and is about to attack the dog when the governor pulls out a pistol and shoots the coyote. The governor has spent $0.50 on a .45 ACP hollow point cartridge. Buzzards eat the dead coyote.

Now you know why California is broke.

    Ha! Ha! I can always count on your blog for a pick-me-up. Discussions were getting a little too heated for me elsewhere (including comments on my own blog right now). Things are crappy in this country, no doubt, but we need to lighten up and sometimes laugh at the absurdity. You do an excellent job of that, Bob.
