Some people ask how I could have possibly chosen Mexico instead of California

I could not go without posting this next item.  A friend of mine from my old Rotary Club sent it to me and I just had to share it with you.

I know that some of you will just roll you eyes and say it is too exaggerated, but having lived in California and being subjected to several building projects where there were so many unreasonable demands placed on the builder, some of which denied any logic what so ever, this story is very close to reality.

Enjoy, especially to all the Californians!


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 then realizes he should stop because the coyote is 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 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
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 suit
against the state.

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 $.50 on a .45 ACP hollow point
The buzzards eat the dead coyote.
And that, my friends, is why California is broke and Texas is not.
Well that is one of the reasons anyway, there are dozens of other reasons. And perhaps it explains why a handful of my old buddies have packed up and moved to Texas.
Just saying....
