LOS ANGELES Mike Reilly spent his lifetime chasing the California dream. This year he's going to look for it in Colorado.

With a house purchase near Denver in the works, the 38-year-old engineering contractor plans to move his family 1,200 miles away from his home state's lemon groves, sunshine and beaches. For him, years of rising taxes, dead-end schools, unchecked illegal immigration and clogged traffic have robbed the Golden State of its allure.

Go East, young man? Californians look for the exit - Yahoo! News (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090112/ap_on_re_us/fleeing_california;_ylt=ApXLnfZFX7YTuDFGHvQJZ_hvzw cF - broken link)

I read that article and winced.

To be blunt: I am fast coming to the conclusion that Calif will need to be a similar situation as Chrysler LLC before the (necessary) Draconian measures are taken to cut out the cancer within (illegal aliens, corrupt politicians, etc).

Agreed. Unfortunately, Ahhnold has yet to name the major cause of California's collapse: the cost of educating illegal aliens, anchors and Dreamies, and providing them free: breakfasts, lunch, healthcare, welfare, food stamps, section 8 housing and the jailing of millions of illegal alien gang members. All of who pay no taxes and economically are a net zero benefit.

Just because the word immigration appears in the article, it doesn't automatically make the article specifically about immigration.
This is off topic.
