Something to consider. All this discussion about California is skating over the main issue. They are a smaller version of the entire USA, except they
don't have a money printing press. They just spent money like they did. Now, it's past time to pay the piper. California is truly a dead man
walking, but they still act like they have a choice in the matter. Those union controlled reps in the state government still don't want to cut
funding to any of their pet programs. Time will take care of that decision on it's own. The state reps obviously are living in a world where they
believe things are still like they used to be.
It's over for them, and they don't even realize it. In many places throughout the state, lights will go out in state owned buildings, paychecks
will bounce, and if you still want to come to work, that's ok, you just won't have a paycheck. And thinking as a state retiree, you'll have that
nice pension that you're union negotiated for you to live on for the rest of your life. Think again, those pensions will go the way of Social
Security, underfunded, and basically broke. Come on folks, does anyone believe we'll ever get much of any of the social security we've been paying
in for all these year??
Remember, California is dead in the water, a near dead flopping beached whale, that everyone is standing around wondering what to do with. It
will die a painfull death, just like the rest of the states that have unfunded entitlements. We don't want to be cruel to all those unfortunate
illegals who don't have any healthcare, or other free entitlements do we? Yes, it's all sad, and I feel soryy for all the effected families just
trying to get by. But reality is a bi__h. And somewhere, at sometime, debts have to be paid, And that time is NOW, as California is finding out. We
all better pay attention, because the last time I looked, no state owns a money printing press.
