1 Reason Why California is Broke and Texas isn't

The Governors of the two states jogging with their dogs along a trail. 
Coyote jumps out and starts to attack dog:

#1. Governor starts to intervene and then realizes he should stop; the coyote is doing what is natural. 
#2. Call animal control. Animal control captures coyote and spends $200 testing it for diseases and $500 relocating it. 
#3. Call Vet. Veterinarian collects dead dog and spends $200 testing it for diseases. 
#4. Governor goes to hospital and spends $3500 getting checked for diseases from the coyote and getting bite wound bandaged. 
#5. Running trail gets shut down for 6 months while wildlife services conduct a $100,000 survey to make sure the area is clear of dangerous animals. 
#6. Governor spends $50,000 and starts a coyote awareness program for people who live in the area. 
#7. State legislature spends $2 million investigating how to better handle rabies and how to possibly eradicate it. 
#8. Governor's security agent fired for not stopping the attack and letting the Governor try to intervene. 
#9. Cost $75,000 to train new security agent. 
#10. PETA protests the relocation of the coyote. 

#1. Governor spends $1.23 on a .380 ACP Gold Dot Hollow Point and he and the dog keep jogging. 
And we wonder why California is BROKE…
