IN CALIFORNIA

Jerry Brown, the Governor of California, is out enjoying a nature trail with his dog when a coyote jumps out of the brush 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 and they capture the coyote and bill the state $200 for testing it for diseases and $500 for relocating it.

Governor Brown calls a veterinarian who 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 getting his bite wound treated.

The nature trail is 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 suit against the state.

California's solutions to routine problems are always complex and expensive!

IN TEXAS

Greg Abbott, Governor of Texas, is out enjoying a nature trail with his dog when a coyote jumps out of the brush and attacks his dog.

The Governor shoots the coyote with his state-issued pistol and continues to traverse the nature trail.

The Governor has spent 75 on a .45 ACP hollow point cartridge.

The buzzards eat the dead coyote.

Texas' problems are resolved simply, quickly, and inexpensively!

This is unquestionably why California is broke and Texas is not.
