California reminds me of a person that went out to party. This person did coke, drank whiskey, and partied every day . Eventually this person got sick,
went broke, and ended up in jail dying.
Meanwhile you went to work, you went to school, got a great paying career for your efforts.
Now this person is asking YOU to pay his medical bills, his bail, a place to live,
and also wants you to give him some money so he can party some more.

Where does this thought process come from?
Why are you attacking people you do not know?
I know more than my share of folks from - ALL OVER THE WORLD -
who fit both descriptions you present.
This is an unfair and ridiculous assessment of a population you clearly
know nothing about. This is how wars get started.
Please be a responsible communicator and reassess your need to
hurt instead of help.

California is doing essentially what the federal government does. Spend money it doesn't have.
He wasn't actually being serious about this happening.
