Say you have a state that misspends its budget such that things can't be paid for or it runs up too much debt or something stupid like that so it costs the country to bail them out ... what happens ... do the feds jump in & kick out the governor or what ?

It's called business as usual. They don't care as long as the people pay for it.

and if the state can't pay it's way ? federal bailout after federal bailout ...

would start to piss everyone else off.

surely there has to come a point where the country has to do something to correct the problem ?

(I'm thinking about Greece in Europe - wondering how a similar situation would be dealt with in America)

They're probably trying to get out of it what they can before the ship totally crashes. No need keeping up the theater anymore, just rob them blind before everyone figured out what's going on.

Wonder what's going on there btw. http://www.eutimes.net/2011/09/obama-ordered-to-denver-bunker-by-us-military/

According to wiki-answers..

Are you referring to America? Well, infact, a number of things could happen.
First of all, bankrupcy is highly unlikely. Especially in todays world. Usually when a country finds themselves heading in a direction where the government can no longer support a failing economy the first thing they will do is meet with other nations to form trade agreements to increase trade. For example, Country A, might meet with Country B and ask Country B to lift customs fees/tariffs to increase imports of Country A's goods.
If this fails, they will then seek loans from other countries. Usually this will be their allies since in peace agreements they usually, not only include military peace but also include economic peace which means the other country will bail them out.
If that fails then they will seek assistance from other countries and for something that their country has to offer in return. For example, Country B agress to assist Country A with financial assistance if Country A allows Country B to use a military base(s) in Country A's jurisdiction. It also means that Country B would have a HUGE influence over Country A's political position and 'world view.'
IF THAT FAILS...
1) The stock market will crash and credit will seize
2) All financial institutions will fail
3) All government funded programs will end (such as medicaid, defense, police, education, infrastruture support like roads, utilities etc)
4) Business will close and jobs will be lost
5) There will be mass rioting (and no police to stop the rioters or fire fighters to fight the fire)
6) Everyone will start killing each other for food
7) The rich will buy the country and turn a democracy into a dictatorship

Yep. Our country is going no where fast... Government is spending money really stupid like and no one wants to pay taxes...

Personally, I think if we moved towards socialism a bit more, taxed imports heavily (products from other countries, not including raw materials) and stopped spending so much money on crap we could start turning around our country... We also need to tax income at a flat percent. So everyone pays relative to how much they make, but since super rich people are in control, that isn't going to happen.

It's just stupid that 98% of the country is ran by 2% of the ultra rich. Money runs America and in a country where greed is rampant, that just doesn't work...

For instance, in my home town, the elementary school (3-5th grade) received a 2 million dollar federal grant for a green house.

Now I know 2 mil isn't all that much to our government when looking at the big picture, and I know it was a educational grant, but it was still federal and I do not think 3rd-5th graders need a 2 million dollar green house to learn how plants grow. That money could of been relocated to the budget..

Just one personal, specific example of really stupid spending. We are in some deep shit that we need to sort out.

If things keep going the way they are, I don't think in the next 30 years a Coup d'état is that far off from reality.

@soontekk - won't happen. EU will federalise. at least partially.

euro bonds probably. sorry our lot won't pitch in properly but we're not really europe apparently.

so basically - best case scenario - eu federalises (follows us model) & we get to be in deep do do like you are. awesome.

sounds like a little wealth redistribution wouldn't hurt but that's easier said than done. the rich never want to give up their advantage.

Francis Ford Coppella
Friedrich Nietzsche
George Washington
Thomas Jefferson
Hunter S. Thompson
Jack Nicholson
Pablo Picasso
Pythagoras
Sir Richard Branson
Richard Pryor
Salvador Dali

I removed it as there 's no need for a public slanging match.

once again you've derailed a thread. if you want to talk about weed, start your own thread.

you are neither american nor on topic.

I didn't talk about cannabis until you mentioned it.
If you don't want people to comment on it then don't fuckin mention it.

If you say I have nothing sensible to contribute you must be right eh, after all you claimed that you are always right as you're a programmer and programming requires 'correctness' lol, so you obviously must be right. You're such a genius.

I mentioned it because you came out with a bunch of off topic drivel so you're either stoned or really stupid or trolling or all of the above.

what have you contributed towards consideration of a solution to the greece problem ?

@everyone else - sorry about this.
