LOS ANGELES, CA - OCTOBER 09: An ambulance transporting a patient is reflected in the window of another ambulance at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center on October 9, 2008 in Los Angeles, California. California State Treasurer Bill Lockyer has warned that California cash revenues will run out by the end of the month affecting law enforcement agencies, nursing homes and other services and government entities of approximately 5,000 California cities, counties, and school districts. A worldwide credit crunch threatens to derail state plans for a routine 7 billion dollar loan to even out the tax flow into the state treasury. Just two weeks after state lawmakers came to agreement, after months of haggling on a record-overdue state budget, California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is warning of future cuts to the state budget to deal with skyrocketing financial problems. A frozen credit market and revenues for the first quarter of the fiscal year that fell more than a billion dollars short of previous projections are causing the governor and state legislative leaders scrabbling to deal with a new budget mess.

91-Year-Old Man Told ‘Go Back To Mexico’ After Being Beaten With Brick
According to CNN, badly bruised 91-year-old, Rodolfo Rodriguez was taking a walk on the 4th of July when he was brutally attacked by a group of people in LA.
“I can’t walk anymore,” he cried in Spanish. “I’m in so much pain.”
The elderly man was walking to a nearby park minding his business when he passed a woman and her young daughter, when she began attacking him with a brick without warning. The woman even enlisted a group of men to help her attack the man, by claiming that the Rodriguez had tried to take her child. Through tears he said, “But that’s not true,” he continued, “In the years I have been alive I have never offended anyone.”
“I didn’t even bump into her kid,” Rodriguez claimed. “I just passed her and she pushed me and she hit me until she was done.”
Authorities are looking for the woman who initiated the brutal attack and the men who assisted in the attack. A passerby who witnessed the attack said, “I heard her saying, go back to your country, go back to Mexico,” she told CNN. “When I tried to videotape her with my cell phone, she threw that same concrete block, tried to hit my car.”
