Ultimately it seems as if states like California are being made to suffer because they are competitive in world trade, whereas other states cant even compete with huge tax incentives for businesses, need help from the govt yet again.

I have worked long and hard on my early childhood unhappiness, pain and TRAUMAS and at a kind of ending.
Yesterday, while on a long walk out of doors, I came to see just how the PTSD of our dad had set me up to live with the relentless burden of PTSD for most of my early life.
