California Budget Surplus!?

I’m just going to warn you right now, that if you are easily offended by obscene language then you probably want to stop reading this right now. I’m pretty sure that this is going to turn into a Planes, Trains and Automobiles moment as I go through the details of this.

As I read the paper this morning, I stumbled upon a column that states that the LAO (Legislative Analyst’s Office) of California predicts that there will be a $31 billion surplus for the 2022 budget year starting July 1st.

That’s billion with a “B” in case you glossed over that last sentence!

If this is not clear evidence that the greedy mother fuckers in Sacramento are taking too much of our money … then I don’t know what is!? I warned you the language was not going to be pretty … but how can you read that and not have a string of expletives fall out of your mouth!?

People have been struggling due to the pandemic. Struggling to put food on the table … struggling to pay their mortgage … struggling to pay for gas … and the state government is awash with cash … OUR CASH!

That surplus of money will exceed a constitutional limit on spending by more than $14 billion. (Holy shit! … there’s actually a limit on spending … that’s news to me … but apparently there’s no limit on collecting!) The surplus could require Pretty Boy Newsom and the group of criminals called “lawmakers” to either cut taxes … spend more money on schools and infrastructure … or perhaps give rebates to taxpayers. Any guess on the route they’ll take? My bet is on spending!

Newsom indicated that his preferred choice is to give the money back to taxpayers.

Preferred choice!?

Fuck you! Give me MY money back dick … and don’t tax me on it either … like you do on the tax refunds … I used to get!

“How we framed that historic surplus last year, similarly, we will frame our approach this year. I’m very proud of the historic tax rebate last year, and I look forward to making the decision that I think is in the best interests of 40 million Californians.” – Newsom

Wow! Don’t hurt yourself sucking your own dick Newsom! You’re so modest. If you didn’t catch that … there was a surplus last year also! If you don’t think they are taxing us too much … you’re a fucking idiot!

California businesses reported a record high $216.8 billion in taxable sales, a 38.8% increase over last year. Taxes on income, sales and corporations were 40% higher than September of last year … and don’t forget that last year we were all still struggling to pay bills due to the pandemic. Did the State Government care? It sure doesn’t seem like it! Now we know … the reason we were struggling is because the state was taking all of our fucking money!

Nick Maduros, director of the California Department of Tax and Fee Administration said …

It is a sign that business owners found creative ways to adapt during a difficult year.” – Nick Maduros

For any business owner who lost their business during the last year due to exorbitant taxes, government mandated shutdowns and prohibitive regulations … I guess you just weren’t creative enough! Here’s a picture of this tone deaf asshole, so you can put a face to the name.

Continuing along with the theme of stupid quotes from detached politicians …here’s a quote from Toni Atkins. (seen below)

“California’s strong fiscal health is not an accident. It is the direct result of a decade of responsible budgeting by Democratic legislators and governors that enabled the state to survive the pandemic downturn.” – Toni Atkins

Please tell me that you’re not buying that load of shit!

She is the the Senate President Pro Tempore who obviously has “higher-office aspirations” made obvious with her knob slobbering comments about her Democratic Party. You can stop stroking the governor … he does enough of it himself … he doesn’t need your help.

The amount of taxes collected is obscene (proven by the projected surplus) and yet they have the gall to say they don’t have enough money to accomplish all the things they want to do. Are you fucking serious!?

You obviously have more than enough money … you just don’t know what the fuck you’re doing!

At the same press conference where King Newsom said that his preference would be to give the money back to taxpayers, he also said he’d like to put most of the surplus either in the state’s savings account or spend it on one-time items that don’t require funding “so that we’re not caught flat-footed when the economy contracts, when the markets begin to adjust.”

Fuck you, you arrogant prick! The tax payers would like to keep their money in their own savings accounts or spend it themselves! You know damn well the Governor and the legislature are going to spend it on some bullshit pet project rather than save it for a “rainy day” like they stated. They’ll just spend it and then when the “economy contracts” … they will just cry in the camera and say they need more money. It’s the same shit that happens ad nauseam and the electorate … being a bunch of dumb shits … keeps voting for the same thing over and over and over again. There is some sort of phrase about insanity that comes to mind.

These greedy mother fuckers just take, take, take … but can’t ever seem to ever fix anything. Homeless people … oops, I mean … “unhoused individuals” (these new names and terms they come up with constantly are fucking ridiculous) are on every street now. We haven’t done anything to address the water shortage. We have some of the highest taxes on gas and the worst roads. We spend a shit ton of money per student and get dismal results. If you don’t believe me, just try giving a young worker $5.12 when your total comes up to $3.62 and watch their reaction.

The state constitution requires that lawmakers spend about 40% of state tax collection on public education which translate to an additional $11 billion going to schools because of the surplus. Awesome! More money to help push this fucking CRT bullshit and and continue the brainwashing of our kids!

I don’t know … maybe I’m the only one in this state who likes keeping my money!? I must be! All the smart people packed up and got the fuck out of this backwards-ass state. I guess I’m just the idiot who stays. I guess I like getting dry fucked on a regular basis!

Don’t blame me, I did my part to try to recall him! Unfortunately, I don’t have the power to suspend the mail … so all the dead people’s votes made it to the polling stations just in time.

I guess it’s time to start looking at other states to live in … where at least I’ll get lubed up first. If you have any suggestions on where I should move, please email me at comments@todayspetpeeve.com.

One thought on “California Budget Surplus!?

  1. I pray for you and all the people of California. I’ve seen Newsom in the news and he’s one smug, power hungry, and tyrannical POS. It makes me glad that I don’t live there. But just the same, my heart goes out to you guys. 💔
