Doc, It Hurts When I Do This

You know the old saw…A patient goes to see a doctor and complains that “it hurts when I do this”.  To which the doctor replies somewhat simply, “Then stop doing that”!

California is the patient.  And we are the doctor.

See, California is like Greece except not as cool.  They spend and spend and spend on entitlement projects.  They have a massive public union sector.  They have built a population that feels it’s their God-given right to “get”.  And they can’t or won’t eliminate those programs.

They’re going into massive debts cycles.  They are having to raise taxes to the point that

1.  People are leaving

2.  They voted to stop raising taxes.

In short, they’re in about as bad’a shape as a State can get.  And here is the proof:
