Hi everyone,first of all I just wanted to say that despite all the problems we face here,i'm happy to live in this great state of ours,and yes I am

1) A U.S Citizen
2) I Speak English
3) I'm not in a Gang
4) I'm not Rich either

And the area I live in is not

1) The Ghetto
2) Not Overcrowded
3) Minimal Traffic
4) Affordable Cost of Living

I brought this up after hearing so many complaints about California going downhill,etc....To be honest all these obstacles were facing here is kinda a good thing because it helps Balance things out and it also helps us to learn from our mistakes to either correct them or try to cope with problems that cannot be avoided.

The truth is everywhere you go,you will be faced with problems either sooner or later,because that's the way it will always be in this world we live in....I'm not saying for no one to leave,but what I am saying is California is still a Wonderful Place even though it's not perfect.

Thank You

California is a great state but it also has many deep rooted problems. The problems have been getting worse and now to the point where our way of life will be significantly impacted. Problems don't fix themselves. Nobody will fix anything if no one complains. The level of complaints has increased and will further increase as conditions get worse.

There is no real point that you made to discuss. You just made a closed ended statement.

You seem to have totally missed the point.

Wrong.

There are still good pockets for English-speaking, middle-class people to live in. That was the take-home message.

The task at hand is to maintain those that still exist by keeping one's home value high so as to discourage the existing properties to be made into Section 8 properties and for newer properties to be made into high density housing. Add either of those to any community and its quality of life will suffer.

That's what could be done on the home front.

What could be done politically or legislatively to address the problems that Don has in mind? Notice I didn't say solve, just address...

People are complaining because of the direction we are heading and given the current situation with Fed, State and local financials/budgets/debt, business, unemployment, illegal immigration and the housing market/foreclosures we know conditions will get much worse before they get better. There has been no significant change to turn this around so until that happens we continue in the wrong direction and worse future conditions.

Some are already feeling the pain with job loss, home loss and bankruptcy and some have not experienced the pain ... yet ...

California is a living hell, which is waiting to implode. People can dream all they want and have all of the "positive" thoughts, however, California is doomed. Financially, socially, etc. The dream of 40+ years ago is not available for the vast majority of people in the world. Anyone thinking they can live the "California Dream" is fooling themselves. The VAST MAJORITY cannot and will not. Sure, you have a success story here and there, however, the facts and truth shows you cannot live this "dream." Its not socially and, moreover, economically feasible.
