    If California is the indicator for America then it's.

    1) Greedy public unions controlling Government

    2) Businesses/jobs leaving the country/state in droves.

    3) Outrageous unemployment figures

    4) Constant rising debt

    5) High loss of personal freedoms

    6) High taxes beyond citizen controls

    7) High percentage of citizens controlled by the government..

    8) Highest gas prices

    9) The sunsets are breath taking

    ...Yup, coming to Your State Soon...not the sunsets though..

    Our sunsets in TX are just fine, and we'll take the companies and their wealthy folks, they can keep the rest.

    Kalifornia is an indicator of something alright. Everything looney and stupid almost always starts there.

    Let the businesses leave, it opens space up for some homegrown businesses that have been stifled by super-multinational corporations.

    Future?.....

    (Most likely, the bipolar political reign will continue. DemReps will do what they have done.)

    .....not very bright.

    .

    Yeah, I wouldn't be crowing about California right now. Ignoring that fiscal disaster takes some pretty serious denial.
