And words from the big man himsel:
"Mr Schwarzenegger, whose popularity has plunged to levels that George W. Bush would recognise, told lawmakers in Sacramento, the state capital: “California’s day of reckoning is here. Our wallet is empty. Our bank is closed. Our credit is dried up.”

There have been plenty of actors who made fine politicians and statesmen. Sonny Bono, Clint Eastwood, Ronald Reagan, etc... Hell Roy Acuff of country music fame even ran for Governor of Tennessee...

It's definitely not a good thing, but California has made its bed and its time for them to sleep in it. Unfortunately, socialism doesn't work and Cali needs to fall and we all have to feel the effects, this is the only way things are going to change.
Cali's fate needs to become a grim reminder of why socialism is a very very bad idea. The corruption needs to be outed and people keep voting for the corruption and this is the only way for things to change for the better.
Life is hard and not fair. You can call me an *hole and whatever else, but it's time for some people to face the music. Those last two sentences aren't aimed at you.
