California ain't going anywhere, the weather alone along with the brain power of SF you can't duplicate until you get back into the Northeast but you wouldn't know that in here

Do you have a reading comprehension problem? Or is your programming so complete that you cannot face facts.

The end will come when California cannot find buyers for its bonds, and the federal treausry refuses to step in and bail them out.There is not one state in the US that can run up $16 billion defecits and remain viable.

If it's only a miniscule $16 billion, The 0 will feel like a piker just giving CA that little. He will save those union workers -- if he has time. Maybe gift CA that underfunded $300 billion for pensions, just for good measure?

Obviously , when it comes to grammar , the brainpower of "SF" has passed you by.
Driving across California is like going from Mississippi to Massachusetts without ever crossing a state line.

Consider the disconnects: California's combined income and sales taxes are among the nation's highest, but the state's deficit is still about $16 billion. It's estimated that more than 2,000 upper-income Californians are leaving per week to flee high taxes and costly regulations, yet California wants to raise taxes even higher; its business climate already ranks near the bottom of most surveys. Its teachers are among the highest paid on average in the nation, but its public school students consistently test near the bottom...
