“The feds dont need to resort to anything as crude as using direct force....”
Ya might want to think about that a little bit...
“... in May 2010 “ the US federal budget deficit was $83 billion, or about $8.90 per person per day. Now the Washington Times (hat tip: the American Thinker) reports that the US government has posted its largest monthly deficit in history, $223 billion in February. Now that means that the US government borrowed nearly $26 per person per day. “
I could not find the change from March 2011 to 2012....but a TRIPLING from 2010 to 2011 means the end game is right around the corner...IMHO. Arizona knows it. California denies it.
California seems so far beyond denial that to a thinking person it has moved into genuine insanity. Note CA just passed a huge bond issue to build high speed rail. With a $19 billion (or more) 2011-2012 deficit, doing this is mass mental illness.
This level of delusion says to me that when the house of cards comes down, it could be real anarchy in the urban areas of the state. Places like LA have the potential of Mad Max scenarios. And every scumbag is armed while all the latte libs are in their (unarmed) alternate universe.
Even scarier is the impact that CA's crash will have on the other states. The level of commerce that comes through CA from Asia is gargantuan.
