California May Fall Into Ocean After All As America's First Failed State

Turns out the old myth we used to laugh at as kids of California breaking off into the sea wasn't that far fetched after all. My home state California is on the verge of collapsing and I'm not too surprised. The 8th largest economy in the world is set to be the first state of the union to fail. This is what happens when a state is mismanaged by greedy politicians and the people are asleep at the wheel over who they elect.
But the state that was once held up as the epitome of the boundless opportunities of America has collapsed. From its politics to its economy to its environment and way of life, California is like a patient on life support. -Guardian UK
China is even forecast by a Russian Professor, Igor Panarin, to be waiting in the wings to make California and the rest of the US west coast part of their communist republic in 2010. My former roommate from Michigan would fit in quite well with that socialist scenario seeing how she believes tax payer subsidized programs should pay for her rent and $90,000 Ph.D education. Two California bankruptcies later, she still thinks she deserves to remain in my native Golden state in one of the most expensive cities in the world enjoying all the benefits while priding herself as part of the middle class.

Yup, this is the lady who unjustifiably called the police on me continually to force me out of one of the best lease deals in San Francisco in 1999 during a housing shortage. She obtained the entire lease this way after five evictions i
n five years. Prior to getting the lease, she hadn't paid rent an entire year before being evicted from a tax payer subsidized Mary Beth Inn in San Francisco. She abused police services to get her way and took advantage of the race card. An attorney also helped her attain the lease by fraud. What Happened 1999

California is also one of the big prison states in the country. They kept building prisons instead of attending to schools and education. Whatever was given to education was looted from within the system in many cases. I really have nothing more to say except I've noted a long time how mismanaged the state has been in its allowance of people from all over the country to migrate to it with such ease. Other states encourage their natives to remain and build communities. Such communities make it difficult for new comers to plant roots unless they have something to really contribute.

Of course another issue is the fact there are so many attorneys draining the state charging enormous fees for doing very little on people's behalves. California has been host to some huge law firm collapses the likes of Heller Erhman and Brobeck among others. California deliberately made its bar exam one of the toughest in the country due to there being too many attorneys who wish to practice here. There are still too many attorneys that doesn't make for a well rounded culture.

The state reelected Arnold Schwarzenegger to a second term as a sign of how bad things have become. When California fails, the rest of the country, not to mention the world, will feel the effects of its collapse. California could become the first metaphorical black hole in the US that begins collapsing everything into itself.
