    I love those "projections" , it's why when people post these rediculous numbers of how things will turn out, make my eyes glaze over. When will people learn, you cant predict 3 months from now, and these morons want to predict 10 years from now. They should do an anual budget and the more laws congress passes, the more laws they have to reauthorize, so they might actually prioritize what is really important.

    So you mean decades of liberal ideology and millions of illegal aliens haven't turned out to be a recipe for success?

    Using Facebook revenues to justify an analogy to Greece is one hell of a stretch!

    There are more analogous commonalities between Cali and Greece than that. And a lot of them.

    The municipal bond problems, the public employee pension problems, the swaps problems. These make California more like Greece than some IPO. And some of them are ticking time bombs under California of which the taxpayers are not yet even aware!

    Pretty much but that hasn't stopped them from doubling and tripling down on failure. Then, they're flummoxed when people are moving out of the state in record numbers.

    Mexico isn't going to take California! They Mexican government will be, "no way man, crippling debt, a business environment that fleeing, budget that can never be even close to met, bankrupt cities, worst education system in the country, highest cost of living in the country so forth and so one, you can keep CA, since Mexico has it's own problems without that headache!"

    Liberals plan against the reconquesidora, make the States so unattractive that not even Mexico wants them!
