The California economy will not turn around. It is over in California.

The only thing that even makes the numbers even close to poor is the performance of companies in the silicon valley, and now we are going to lose many of those, too.

Six governors from other states are here constantly recruiting and trying to lure companies away and they are succeeding.

Our criminal legislature, along with a famously incompetent governor have doomed us all. This is not a political statement. It is fact. Combine this with the fact that our state refuses to do anything about the immigration problem (and yes, it is a problem) or respecting the rights of those who are here legally means no one new wants to come here and start businesses. I am, of course, excluding all the lawn businesses started by our immigrant friends.

Our tax rates are the highest of any state except Massachusetts and Minnesota. All in all, it is recipe for disaster and it has already been implemented. This was paradise once. It is hell now.

Whew! Sure glad you posted this! With all the evidence to the contrary of everything you have written, I feared maybe the future might be bright ... which ... would ... be ... absolutely ... devastating for life on the forum here.

Thank you so much!

His name is a class of ship in the navy. I'm assuming he was in the navy.

Otherwise his post is standard diatribe that he tries to disguise as fact.

"It is fact" has changed its meaning. It now means "an opinion based solely on internet lore"
