10/13   I'm interested in buying CA bonds
        http://buycaliforniabonds.com
        What's a good broker to use? Etrade is not listed.
        \_ Why?  CA is likely to default.
           \_ What the hell does this mean? Can American default?
              \_ Yes.  T-bills are now insured for the first time.  CA is
                 marching towards bankruptcy.  Every other state facing budget
                 shortfalls is cutting spending, except CA of course.
        \_ ETrade sells CA bonds. I have bought them there many times.

11/2    California Uber Alles is such a great song
        \_ Yes, and it was written about Jerry Brown. I was thinking this
           as I cast my vote for Meg Whitman. I am independent, but I
           typically vote Democrat (e.g., I voted for Boxer). However, I
           can't believe we elected this retread.
           \_ You voted for the billionaire that ran HP into the ground

8/29    OC turning liberal, maybe there is hope for CA afterall:
        http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/30/us/politics/30orange.html
        \_ and the state is slowly turning conservative. Meg 2010!
           \_ We will see. Seems unlikely.
        \_ Yeah, because CA sure has a problem with not enough dems in power!
           If only dems had been running the state for the last 40 years!

        http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/38217476/ns/us_news-crime_and_courts
        \_ I just bought a hot homeless teen runaway lunch.
           Am i going to jail?
           \_ Was she 18?

4/15    Guess who is not on this list (States with worst projected deficits):
        http://www.cnbc.com/id/36510805?slide=1
        \_ Don't know how CA missed that list; we're looking at a $20B deficit
           on $82.9B spending (24.1%)  -tom
           \_ Even if that number is accurate, it makes California #7. That's
              enlightening given the attenion California has received.

8/12    Thanks for destroying the world's finest public University!
        http://tinyurl.com/kr92ob (The Economist)
        \_ Why not raise tuition? At private universities, students generate
           revenue. Students should not be seen as an expense. UC has
           been a tremendous bargain for most of its existence. It's time
           to raise tuition to match the perceived quality of the

        China denounces US 'rights abuse':
                China has responded in detail to a US report published this
                week criticising China for alleged rights abuses. Beijing

2/16    So California is going to lay off 20% of employees. Seems like a
        good idea, but won't all those people now get unemployment benefits? So
        we'll be paying something like 60% of their salaries (depends on
        their income) for 0% of their work.
        \_ It's a great idea because we're starving the beast. Who needs
           a big government? Every man should be self reliant for his own

2/16    California is truly f'd for sure this time.  Can we find another pair
        of stupid radio DJs to start a drive to recall Arnold?

        \_ It will only help if we get a governor with a spine, and get rid of
           the incompetent legislature.

        \_ this whole bribe businesses to "create" jobs is a crock of bs imo
           \_ Sure, but the end result is CA loses jobs.
              \_ well, no, it isn't.  Other business replace them.  -tom

        \_ Thank god, I hope this will ease up with congestion. On the

Skip to Content Bill Lockyer, California State Treasurer, Buy California Bonds Search: Banner images of STO program areas Let us know: How did you learn about this website? Newspaper ad Radio ad Online ad or search Financial advisor Word of mouth Other: Submit Welcome. California bonds finance investments in our schools, roads, housing, parks, levees, public facilities and other crucial infrastructure projects. They also finance the research and development of stem cell therapies to treat and cure diseases which ravage lives and families. As Treasurer, I am responsible for managing all of the State's bond sales. I want to make it easy for individuals to make these investments - and pay the same price as large institutional investors. This website will show you how to buy infrastructure bonds, lease-revenue bonds to build State-government buildings, bonds to fund stem cell research, as well as shorter-term notes that help the State manage its cash flow. The bulk of these bonds will help finance infrastructure projects. California voters have approved the issuance of more than $65 billion of bonds to improve and build new schools, roads, housing, parks and levees. By investing in these bonds, you will help turn the projects you approved at the polls into reality - adding to our quality of life and the vibrancy of our economy. On this website, you will learn more about California bonds and notes, and about how to become an investor. This site will be updated regularly to feature upcoming bond sales, with information specific to the types of bonds being offered.
