There is one very easy solution but yet no ones seems to be taking action.

STOP SUPPORTING CORPORATIONS!


So many people complain about these corporations but then you see the same people shopping at Target or Walmart and so on.


Does that make any sense to you?

But...the jobs are coming back, and they always have. Do you remember when Reagan (more Congress and Reagan actually) were busy tripling the national debt, and people were in a panic over the massive debt increase, coupled with Japan buying up everything? After that, (and 4 more years of huge debt spending and a stagnant economy under Bush I), we had an economic golden age, the deficit was on its way to going from record deficits to surpluses, and Japan was left ho,ding the bag on a bunch of botched commerical real-estate deals.

That was just the most recent example of how, deite the middle-class being pawns in the game, the US consistently wins economic wars. History is repeating itself. The EU was set to go big and trump the US, the dollar was plummeting vs the Euro, China running huge GDP gains and surpluses, buying up US land and debt...Bush II started it, Obama is presiding over phase II, but the next president will be the new Clinton when it comes to reaping the rewards of a war (economic) won.

The dollar has already turned around vs the Euro and other major currencies, the US GDP is growing faster than most other industrialized nations, Debt to GDP leveled off and has begun to decline. At the end of this, China will settle back into a reasonable position, and the US will reassert itself as an absolutely dominating economic powerhouse.

If history, logic, and understanding of the macroeconomic picture are any indicator at all, THAT is what is happening, not this wildly off-base garbage about the US never recovering and the "certain" collapse of the dollar so many who dong understand how things actually work believe. Me, I've been around too long, and paid too much attention through the last few decades to be suckered by it. While I'm a very small investor, through the downturn and slow recovery, I've made ridiculous returns, simply by not buying into the bullschtien hype the masses seem prone to believe. I guess the message is, if the bulk of the crown thinks we're sinking, its probably time to buy, because "the masses" being led astray has always been one of the best investment tools available to those with the mmeams to capitalize on the lack of understanding the "bottom 99.9995%” have.

All of southern California should be advised to prepare for the worst.

The state and corrupt local governments have gone as far as they can go. Default, and bankruptcies are inevitable.

If they can't get loans to cover liabilities, if they are forced to cut essential and emergency services, police and fire among them... Well, you can do the math.

In California there has been and is an ongoing and intensifying mass-exodus of corporations and businesses, many to Texas, and even more have either shut down completely and/or left the country, or sold out to foreign investors.

MILLIONS of jobs have left and are leaving California, and the state and local taxes and regulations are increasing to levels that assure the exodus will continue.

It can only get worse, loans and federal dollars can only prop up the economy for so long, and that time is running out.

LIBERAL agendas have destroyed the state, with such a large population of illegals and others dependent on the state for their survival, one only needs to imagine what collapse will mean.

Sure, stop supporting the corporations if you want, it wont make any difference in California.

The illegal immigrant population has EXPLODED in the last several years in San Bernardino. EXPLODED!!!!!!!!!

It looks like California is now going to suffer for the ILLEGAL citizen's parasitic behavior that included a huge draining of finances via their SCHEME of having lots of anchor babies and flooding the hospitals for their free care and every other way that they "MILK" the system because they are somehow "special" and deserve all of the perks that California TAX PAYING CITIZENS deserve. Not to mention the drain on the system of fighting the crime there as well.

Well, San Bernardino citizens, now you are ALL SCREWED and the entire state of California is NEXT if you dont change your ASININE ways. LEGAL CITIZENS must now suffer and most will now receive insult to injury when they are LOOTED next by the criminals. Criminals who may very well be a huge portion of those who are not LEGAL CITIZENS and dont CARE about the LAW!!!

And California is so ANTI-gun that the good folks wont be able to DEFEND themselves.

What a MESS California!!! What a MESS!!!!

That's what happens when we allow a privatization of profit with a socialization of losses.

The illusion of capitalism with a dark secret

It's also a case of civil mismanagement and fraud. These people, ESPECIALLY in California, believe that the taxpayer is an endless supply of cash to fund their exorbitant union contracts to police and firefighters and salaries to mayors and city council members.

The people running that city should be arrested by the citizens and shot.

San Bernardino was a crap-hole back in the 1970s, when I used to drive through it to get up to Big Bear and do some skiing, or go out to Palm Springs for some desert fun. It was full of gangs, it was already run down, and a place that should be rather picturesque was just a ghetto at the base of a mountain range.

I cannot imagine how much worse it has gotten in the thirty plus years since I last went through it.

The city saw a dramatic increase in population during and immediately after World War II:


Post-war prosperity, coupled with continued railroad jobs, civilian and military jobs at Norton, and at Kaiser Steel in Fontana, resulted in vast housing tracts being built in the City's North central and Del Rosa areas. At the same time, the Redevelopment Agency of the City of San Bernardino was formed in 1952 to deal with the Meadowbrook neighborhood south-east of downtown San Bernardino, Ca.


en.wikipedia.org...

However, any boom must inevitably have a bust:


Norton Air Force Base officially closed in 1994, an event which caused the loss of 10,000 military and civilian jobs. Renamed San Bernardino International Airport, it had no scheduled airline service and handled mostly air freight. Coupled with the recession of the early 1990s, the closing of Kaiser Steel in 1985, and Santa Fe Railroad's relocation of jobs to Topeka caused San Bernardino's economy to slide. Civic pride was further wounded when gangs pushed by LAPD suppression in Los Angeles relocated to San Bernardino. The early 1990s saw San Bernardino's crime rate increase as middle class, especially those employed at the large employers or in support of their workers, moved away.


ibid.

Attempts at trying to stave off the inevitable were unsuccessful:


An initiative circulated by Save Our State leader Joseph Turner regarding that illegal immigration was sent to the electorate. According to the impartial analysis prepared by the City Attorney's Office, much of the initiative, even if passed, would have probably been ruled unconstitutional or would have been preempted by federal or state law. Later, Superior Court Judge A. Rex Victor disqualified the measure from the ballot after the City filed a declaratory relief action based on a challenge by local attorney Florentino ("Tino") Garza. The court ruled that Turner had not gathered enough signatures to qualify the measure. Turner, acting on the advice of City Clerk Rachel Clark-Mendoza, had based the number on the 2001 mayoral election (in which Judith Valles ran unopposed), instead of the 2005 mayoral election (which was contested). After the defeat, Turner vowed to bring a new, harsher measure to the ballot, and he mounted an ultimately unsuccessful campaign to replace Clark-Mendoza, herself, as City Clerk by arguing that her alleged incompetence and/or corruption resulted in: uncollected tax revenues; unlicensed home rentals; and, absentee landlords that were lowering property values across the entire city.

San Berdu is done, stick a fork in it.

Cannot agree more. Lawlessness is going to be more rampant than it is now in low income areas.

Can you imagine what it will be like when essential services are cut, when the deeper cuts in police and fire are in place, businesses are closed because the cities cannot protect them?

it is capitalism as practised by america at its finest and observed by a cuban revolutionary hero when he said:


Well well, another anti-Capitalist blaming all our problems on the bourgeois Capitalists. Ok then, Barack is using State Capitalism to achieve his Marxist/Leninist goals of redistribution of income and the welfare state. Only he is giving our money away to HIS cronies and buddies, the Union bosses, inept Green Energy companies, and apparently himself with all the spending on the royal family in the WH.

The Welfare State is destroying the middle class, not creating it.

Yes, isn't it a shame? All the gangs started in California then fanned out to other states. Even in my state in the Midwest were Crips and Bloods in the late 80's. By the 90's there were reports on the news about how gangs had spread. Gangs are poverty and drug related. MS-13 gang is particularly notorious now.

I think some people are getting a first hand experience with the the results of their own policies. a combination of illegal immigration, drug running and other factors, and now those who even have guns will have to rely on their own resources because the police force is not capable of containing it.

This is also the result of secular humanism as pushed in the schools and society in general, where people are not taught to be considerate of others. I think it is interesting that some here are blaming a lack of concern for others on Capitalism, and yet welfare is so deeply entrenched, you would think that it would be a paragon of socialist peace and prosperity....

But alas secular humanism has taught society that man is a law unto himself and there is no God overseeing our actions and taking us to task when we err. Every man for himself in a secular dog eat dog world with fake Utopians pretending to care about others with their social engineering.

This is what we got now.

After 70 years of social engineering read us the score?

California
national deficit 16 trillion

And it's the corporations fault!!!

Oh that is rich.


Corporations are evil! Gimme a job! no corporations are evil Gimme a job, then tax tax tax those corporations, and those rich people so they can go out and buy more corporate products!

Pretty hard to lock a door when your home has been repod, and you had to sell your guns to put food on your table, then go out and buy more corporate products!.


Meh. as the Dalai Lama said Much in the window, but nothing in the room.

This isn't just happening in the cities that were slums before. I live in a town where the majority were upper middle class with a scattered upper class ( there is even a guy here that built his own town for his family about 15 miles away) before the economy collapsed. Now, most of the streets are falling apart, the unemployment rate is only dropping because unemployment is running out for many, and homelessness is becoming a real issue. I'd say our population is somewhere around 15000(a lot has changed since the last census) and the foreclosure rate is alarming considering many own their homes outright. Our police dept. However can afford to purchase new cars every year, and hire undercover cops, a drug task force, and what can only be described as overkill for regular patrolmen that usually sit at the station or park in a row at Walmart. Our city officials take home nice salaries, and our fire dept. is ridiculous. Since when does a small town need a state of the art hazmat team. Meanwhile the general population suffers. It does seem to be headed much in the same direction though. A few more years and our city will be bankrupt too. They just started with a relatively high budget and abused it.

National debt is 16 trillion.

Deficit is the difference between revenue and spending. Also, have a look at the debt.

That is a STATE!
