The Simple Solution to California’s Deficit
So there’s been a lot of talk about California and it’s massive deficit. This affects us all, because the Terminator State leads the way on so many things, environmental protection, regulations on cars, and the ever-important mattress tag fiasco that pervades every sleeping Americans life.
If you weren’t aware, California is facing a $42B deficit. That’s a capital B for billion, folks. The press is claiming that this is going to be Arnold’s legacy, who somehow seems to be serving his 3rd term despite California’s 2 terms/governor limit, if he can’t get everything cleaned up and looking pretty for January 1st, 2011.
While the Governator tries to sort things out behind a cloud of sweet smelling cigar smoke, I’ll do the honors of saving the world’s 11th largest economy from utter devastation: Arnold Schwarzenegger.
A Schwarzenegger movie, on average, grosses around $90million. Arnold would only have to make 466 movies in order to pay off that debt. That number shrinks to about 210 movies if he only makes really good Terminator movies.
Schwarzenegger Trivia: Did you know that Arnold was a millionaire before the age of 30, even before he had even begun his acting career? Apparently, he made a bunch of cash with a mail order and bricklaying business. I found the Wikipedia article on the guy actually quite fascinating.
