Why California Is Broke and Texas Is Not

I'm sure coyotes in California have a retirement plan, a 401k, and are eligible for Obamacare too.

Ever wonder why a prosperous state like California is always so broke they cut back on just about every service, while Texas seems to just keep on doing the right thing. It’s all related to the Coyote Principle

CALIFORNIA

The Governor of California is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps out and attacks the Governor’s dog, then bites the Governor.

The Governor starts to intervene, but reflects upon the movie”Bambi” and realizes he should stop since the coyote’s only doing what is natural.

He calls Animal Control. Animal Control captures the coyote and bills the state $200 testing it for diseases and $500 for relocating it.

He calls a veterinarian. The vet collects the dead dog and bills the State $200 testing it for diseases.

The Governor goes to hospital and spends $3,500 getting shots, checked for diseases from the coyote and on getting his bite wound bandaged.

The running trail gets shut down for 6 months while Fish & Game conducts a $100,000 survey to make sure the area is now free of dangerous animals.

The Governor spends $50,000 in state funds implementing a “Coyote Awareness Program” for residents of the area.

The State Legislature spends $2 million to study how to better treat rabies and how to permanently eradicate the disease throughout the world.

The Governor’s security agent is fired for not stopping the attack. The state spends $150,000 to hire and train a new agent with additional Special Training-Re:The Nature of Coyotes.

PETA protests the coyote’s relocation and files a $5 million lawsuit against the state.

TEXAS

The Governor of Texas is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps out and attacks his dog.

The Governor shoots the coyote with his state-issued pistol and keeps jogging. The Governor has spent $.90 on a .45 ACP hollow point cartridge.

The buzzards eat the dead coyote.

And that, my friends,

is why California is broke,

and Texas is not.
