California budget problems have gotten worse. It is like spiraling into a black hole! No way out!
Is there any hope for fiscal responsibility from Sacramento or is this the last straw?
I for one would love to stay in California but Texas, Arizona, Nevada or Oklahoma are looking real good!

Maybe its this exact crisis that may turn CA around finally, some of us love our home a little too much to cut and run like that. Some of you act like the sky is falling and are the biggest fear mongers its laughable, but to each their own.

That's pretty much what the CEO of Lehman Brothers said to his accountants...what happened to that company again?

There is 1 way out.

Bring in the ICE buses and start hauling the illegal aliens back to Central America.

When you take the approximately 5 million leeches in CA out of the equation, we will be in tip-top shape. You really realize how little you get for your tax dollar in California when you visit other states, and a lot of it is due to the fact that we have so many in this state that leech off the government.

Deport and Repair California.

That being said, who will mow your lawn, how much will peaches picked by $8.50/hr workers cost, will you have to butcher your own meat, vacuum your own office, clean your own house, wash your own car and stay home because your can't afford child care? Where will you get a decent burrito?
Either way, you are going to have to pay. Higher taxes or higher expenses.
Americans, in general have lived a couple of generations of I want it, I want it now and I want it cheap.. We have been living on credit for a long time.
Well, here is the bill. Pay up!

So instead of staying where you are and fighting, organizing, protesting, you choose to run. So you go to those other states, then after awhile, shades of California appear. Then you run again. And run. And run. And don't just stay there and fight, fight, fight.

Californian transplants remind me of Mexicans. Rather than stay in their country and fight, they run!

Yeah or something drastic. Like ship all the ones too like the armos, the asians, middle easterners, africans, caribbeans, russians, back to their homeland. Diversity=disaster.
