Well... your claim is just as impossible to prove.
So there's the end of it.
First, you just jumped subjects. We were talking about your algebra. But if you want to go back to the original subject that you tried to bring up...
Tell the State of California their calculations are wrong. THEY are the ones that know how much their 3.4 Million Undocumented Aliens generate in revenue and how much they draw in direct services. As posted originally, and at EVERY mention, it is THEIR assessment. They proved it. Sorry you don't like it.
Now, what I wrote regarding your algebra problem was the word PROOF
, not prove. As I pointed out, your little algebra problem that you brought up is what we have been discussing.

Do I have to reduce it to math ? !!!??
Here goes, algebra alert.
Assuming a balanced budget,
A + B = C + D where A is contribution to the CGF by illegals , B is contribution by legals , C is consumption of the CGF by illegals , D is consumption of the CGF by legals.
If A > C, it mathematically means B < D.
Go back and read the thread again. It might make sense to you.
