So I am on my way to scrap. Garage sale sign ..........I bought 11 hurricane lamps for a buck each and some other stuff. As I am leaving I see a pile of boxes and garbage bags by the garage. I asked and they said we are throwing all that away so take what you want. As I am digging she goes by and says really take it all! I pulled out watches and lead solders and knives, etc. and a ring.

Get back to the car and get my loupe........14 kt. gold. Added another 85 bucks to my scrapping!!!!!!

Old eye glasses are usually gold filled.

It's just an amazing thing to me that one finds stuff like that. I almost got lazy and said aw next week I'll go. I'm still like a kid and get all fired up and will forever. It's heartwarming to my week of pay. If it sounds braggy ffs it took years to get to this point. Even bright this Sunday morn I was first one in a estate sale for half off.

"We now have a surplus."

Two questions. Did you even bother to read the article?

Have you lost your mind? (to believe the USA has a "surplus" is to be willfully ignorant and totally delusional)

Whether you agree or disagree with my original statement, you cannot in any way convince me or anyone else the USA has a surplus. If you are speaking of the state of California, same exact thing.



hey dumbass, I never said that the USA has a surplus. I will try to teach you about res judicata, real estate, politics etcetera but I will NOT teach you reading comprehension.


Oh and Oxymoron


Read and COMPREHEND your own words. And I QUOTE Bohannon,
"and we now have a surplus".

Can you comprehend your OWN WORDS. (and you call me a dumbass??)

From my link, did you bother to read it?

To use Jerry Brown’s own words, California has a “wall of debt,â€￾ which doesn’t include unfunded pension and medical liability – and that wall of debt is NOT included in the budget. The total amount of that debt is somewhere in the $27 billion range and includes over $10 billion owed to the federal government. That money was used to fund California’s Unemployment Insurance Fund.

Bob Wile(y) of Business Insider wrote:The final budget surplus figure for 2014 will fall somewhere between $1.2 and $4.4 billion, depending on who's counting.


Neither you or Bob are taking into account the 27 billion the state owes to everyone including 10 billion to the federal government, nor is it taking in to account the nearly one trillion owed to your public service employees, by the various municipalities. Yet another reason why liberals can't be trusted with the cookie jar. And fourth highest unemployment in a state with the highest income and gasoline taxes, in the nation.

The only reason California isn't bankrupted is cause your politicians are too embarrassed to do so. They failed at politics, so it isn't surprising they have failed at this.

By the rules of bankruptcy court, yeah you're not only behind on your payments you're ignoring them hoping they'll go away, or be forgiven. Lots of promises are going to be broken.

Bohannon wrote:New rule Alpha the dark....one positive suggestion for every ten negative observations.


Sure, fire all of your politicians and seize all of their ill gotten assets and put it all, in the state treasury where it belongs. Then begin renegotiating all of the ridiculous public service retirement packages the now broke politicians brokered. Fix the problem right up and only a few are affected instead of the many, who had nothing to do with it except electing the thieving lunkheads in the first place.

And above all, imprison that lying witch, senator feinsein, yuck! How do you californians put up with such dishonesty in your state? We've got a governor who was thinking president 2016, until his hand was caught in the cookie jar, just a constant joke with both dishonest parties, both should be outlawed, but which party will save America and do it?

And soon we will have a sleazy post-Clinton operative who, in all appearances I have ever seen of him over the last couple of decades, would be better suited selling used cars.

Of course with Cooch as the alternative, I really see this as a no win for the Commonwealth.

Neither Cooch, or McCoughie are the alternative Cujo. More virginians need to realize Robert Sarvis is in this campaign too, even though neither party will let him get a word in edgewise.

Agreed.

In general, the electorate isn't yet mature enough in their critical thinking to recognize 3rd party candidates

Yes, the legal jargon, which i've already stated your corrupt politicians won't own up to, however trying to ignore more than a trillion dollars of debt doesn't make it go away and in anybody's handbook except exceptionally foolish people, that deep in debt, California is in fact bankrupt. They just haven't gone thru the 'legal' process yet, it's coming whether you, or they like it or not. Just ask the people living in Detroit and also inquire how they're liking their city services.

Californian politicians have been flouting the philosophy that it's better to die a million in debt, than with a million dollars, for the simple reason that the man with a million dollars loses it upon death, whereas the guy in debt is a million dollars ahead!

Funny how my reading comprehension is being attacked.

If you reread my original post, I included California in my statement.

Neither California, Illinois, Rhode Island nor the US government have a surplus these days. They have deficits which will be impossible to overcome under the present circumstances.

Anyone who believes in a "surplus" I cannot help.

You can talk all you want about a legal process and a surplus.

The reality is plain for any common sense person to see.

They are all functionally bankrupt no matter how much you want to protest and play word games about this economic disaster.

Time will prove me right. I am very sure of this.
