Non veni pacem mittere, sed gladium.
I just listened to all 29 minutes. Amazing. California government is a house of cards. I'm a 5th generation Californian, but I made sure my kids were not the 6th generation. California will implode under the weight of its own stupidity. Beautiful state, but it's gone downhill fast since Reagan.
What an eye-opener that video is. How sad that this once-Golden State is doomed.I don't want to leave, but I'm being driven out too. Just the space rental for my mobile home has gone up 260%, but my income sure hasn't. Everything costs more and there's no end in sight. It's also getting dangerous in too many places.When I was a kid here, no one I knew ever locked their doors. Not anymore!
It happened because Brown, in his first term, allowed public employees to unionize, creating a huge constituency that now runs the state, and whose golden benefits will eventually bring it down financially.It happened because the Democrats were successful in creating a dependent class that has to look to the politicians to protect the income they receive from the state taxpayers.It happened because the Democrats were successful in importing enough illegals that they could count on a substantial vote from them. This explains their catering to them even though they aren't citizens and shouldn't be able to vote.It happened because the public education system became owned in full by the Democrats, and they educated a generation or two to look to the socialist state for every need or to solve every problem.I knew for sure the state was beyond repair when the voters approved the bullet train. If they were so gullible to buy that, they'd buy anything.
lot to be said about the density of democrats and the gravity gradient causing them to end up in the west side of the continent. damn shame, too. CA was a fairly nice place to live. now, as you get closer to the coast cities, it looks like a loser convention and none can afford a hotel room.
