Hunny we have been "getting ready" in Northern California for about three years now. While the rest of the state was enjoying the free ride we were
repeatedly cut back on everything under the sun over and over. Now that it has FINALLY gone state wide people are freaking out. Well to bad I say you
should have cut back a long time ago and you would already be in a position to ride it out!
As far as the crime issue we started to get a hail storm of it a couple months back when they did a temp cut on the welfare checks for a month. (I
don't get it so not sure, but did see in local news it was for the month.) It was during the time they had also held onto the state tax returns.
Now during that time even here in my sleepy little town in the middle of the wine country we had a rush of burglaries. They where mostly auto and
home break ins when people weren't home. Although three idiots did try and break in my home while my children and I where obviously inside. They got
a rude awakening via me and a large gun and left when my hub came up the drive way and slammed on the brakes so hard his jeep went sideways. The
second time I got them at the window with the gun and let them know that if I EVER laid eyes on them again I wouldn't think twice about killing them.
Haven't seen them around here since!
Now for the rest of the state there is a heck of a lot of gangs and not so desirable people hanging around the larger cities. I do believe they are
going to have some MAJOR problems with these types as most of them make their so called livings at the expense of other's. The other problems we have
to look forward to are those who choose to abuse the welfare system instead of working and sell drugs on the side...don't even get me started on how
bad they are gonna get! We had three houses of them here for 6 months before the cops harassed them so much they left. It WASN'T pretty. They beat up
kids around here and tried to get a large number of high school kids to sell drugs for them not to mention steal what ever they could get their hands
They have already shut down a huge number of camp grounds and put limits on how long you can stay at the one's that are open.It has already spread to
regular day use areas and they have gone as far as to block them off with those white cement barriers you see on freeways when they are doing
construction. I think perhaps they had this planned out already long ago because the park ranger we talked to said the camp grounds we where scouting
for this summer had been ordered closed for this season last year and that they had a security company lined up to help keep people from crashing
them. So perhaps they knew way back then they where going to have to do this and put the closures and limits in place so that when people became
homeless etc. they couldn't over run the state parks for free.
They have also passed a slue of laws making it illegal to park RVs etc in store parking lots over night and you aren't allowed to keep any at a
residence hooked up etc. Most of the cities around us here have also banned them even being stored at a private residence, you have to take them to a
storage place and pay a monthly fee to keep them there.
All I have to say about the whole thing coming is that most of the people here that have been responsible and taken measures to ride it out are going
to be the one's to get over run by those who slacked off and waited till the last minute to do anything at all.
It really stinks; but as most of us here know the sheep expect everything to be handed to them on a silver platter. The platter is gone and all heck
is going to break loose over it.
My family personally is leaving the city part of town and staying away from the larger cities like San Fransisco when it all starts to come down
hard...real soon I bet. I just hate to think of how bad it is going to get in Southern California because frankly they have about 10X's as many
people down there as we do and about 100X's the gangs.
