Eph 2:8 For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God's gift --
Eph 2:9 not from works, so that no one can boast.
Eph 2:10 For we are His creation, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time so that we should walk in them. [HCSB]

“The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use them.” ― Philip K. Dick

Actually I cannot wait to see this state go bust but, of course they are too big to fail and will get bailed out by the rest of America for their failed socialist philosophies. So, interestingly all Americans will end up paying for the mess Crazyfornians have made for themselves, get ready to bail out Crazyfornia. It will happen...how long is the question.

Here's just a taste of what California is facing...

I left California in 1999. Best decision I've ever made.

With the passing of the Prop 30 tax increases in the recent election, states such as Arizona, Nevada , and Colorado are wooing California business' to come their way. Raise taxes...lose revenue, lose jobs, lose taxpayers from the roles, and so on, and so on...California makes all the wrong decisions.

Steve and I talked about where we would go when he retired as a corrections officer. We never once thought of Indiana. I came here to visit a friend after Steve passed away. I loved it here. At that time, our sales tax was 5% and gas was $.99 a gallon or less. In CA, at that time, sales tax was about 7% and gas was $1.75 a gallon.

Try sales tax of 8.75% and income tax, and gas prices around $4.50, the list of atrocities against the citizenry in CA go on and on....

Although I was a Navy brat and moved a lot as a kid, I lived in California for most of my life (mostly in central and southern CA). The first time I can remember thinking that I didn't belong in CA was when I was in the fourth grade. We lived in San Diego. We went to a decent public school (Balboa Elementary) that had advanced classes (which all three of us girls needed because we were bored if the work was too easy). But, for some odd reason, I felt out of place.

Even after Steve and I got married, I talked about how I didn't feel like I belonged in California. That's why we were talking about where we would move when he retired. We were thinking about either North Dakota or Wyoming.

As a lesson to the rest of the country that our current way of doing business will lead to ruin.

Here's just a taste of what California is facing...
http://www.businessinsider.com/reaso...a-2010-10?op=1

I love this state. It's home. The nation has benefited greatly from the innovative ideas, inventions and technological advancements which have had their genesis here, and the goods and agricultural products produced here. And other good things which would come to my mind if I was finished with my coffee.

From your link:
The official unemployment rate has been sitting above 12 percent for an extended period of time, and poverty is everywhere. For many Californians today, there are very few reasons to stay in the state but a whole lot of reasons to leave: falling housing prices, rising crime, budget cuts, rampant illegal immigration, horrific traffic, some of the most brutal tax rates in the nation, increasing gang violence and the ever present threat of wildfires, mudslides and natural disasters.


Those problems are present in every state in the nation - but yes, certainly in California, so okay, I'm listening... but when the list of negatives moved to acts of nature he lost me. Do you find it at all odd to see those there? It's like he ran out of ideas and threw those in for dramatic flourish. Is there a state that doesn't have natural disasters?

I agree that this part was not well thought out, natural disaters are everywhere and has nothing to do with the downhill spiral California is in. I call California home until retirement than I will take my marbles and move on, I have no intention of supporting California's welfare state beyond my own retirement. In fact if the oppourtunity to leave sooner comes I will scatter my belongings all over the highway to get out, I find nothing redeeming in California but, the weather.
