Kalifornia lost cause
None | None

Posted on 11/03/2010 6:13:01 AM PDT by kgrif_Salinas

While the country made a sharp turn to the right, giving the GOP the House in a landslide, CA has moved MORE to the LEFT, if thats possible. Jerry "Moonbeam" Brown as the next Gov, with a Dem Assembly, AND Prop 25 passed, which only requires a simple majority to pass a budget. CA is doomed, and will soon fall into the Pacific. I predict CA bankruptcy before 2012. Truly a land of fruits and nuts.

A turn to the left and backward.

It’s almost funny, but too bad they have so many electoral votes and we have to bail their dumb asses out eventually.

I hold out hope for Harmer and Vidak at least. Those 2 seats are very close.

Bad night in CA for Republicans.

States need to assert their rights now and say “NO” to a Californiastan bailout!

I grieve with you. It’s my home state and I’m never going back. It won’t go bankrupt, there is simply too much wealth there and too much foreign infusion of money. It will ultimately become just a big huge Massachusetts, bloated, socialistic, unaffordable for other than the limosine liberal elite. Very sad, but it’s only one of 50 states, and there are some wonderful ones among them.

I would hope that the new GOP lead House will not allow a bailout of California. It needs to collapse and be left to its own devices to dig itself out of the pit. There will be pain to the rest of the country, but we can't bailout these failed democrat Gaza strips.

Put it this way: Meg was not nearly conservative enough to make a difference in the state’s financial condition. Neither is the California legislature. The coming disasters will be on Jerry Brown’s watch, and it will take such disasters to turn liberals into conservatives.

California won’t need an Earthquake to fall into the Pacific. It’s sliding into the sewer already.

Companies are leaving by the hundreds. Moonbeam can be the beloved governor of Illegals and the Useful Idiots. He and the Arrogant Babs can stroke each other and laugh at how they destroyed the State of California.

Agreed, California is an insane asylum. Californians have to be the stupidest people in the Country. I think it's because of all the New York and New England transplants coupled with all the third world immigrants.

Not only did Californians put the madman Brown back into the statehouse, they put the pathetic, horrible Boxer back in. This goes beyond stupidity and can only be described as madness.

The unemployment rate is 12.5% or higher and they voted 2 to 1 against prop 23. Again madness, utter madness. I would like to know how people are going to feel when they realize that there are NO green jobs to be had. Notice I said feel and not think because I don't think Californians are capable of thinking.

California deserves EVERY bad thing that happens to it. And bad things are going to happen and very soon. If you are a Californian and reading this, you might start thinking about making an escape. California is a lost cause. It's reached terminal stupidity. Let's write it off.

It is very unlikely the new Congress will give them a “bailout”! Congress controls the money and we control the new Congress.

I think it’s pretty clear that California needs to go bankrupt and start returning to being a desert (thanks to environmental regulations) before it will turn around, but that will also mean a lot of people fleeing California for other states so beware of that scenario.

I’m in CA. I’ve voted here now for 50 years. After yesterday’s results, I’m feeling that if you’re a conservative, why bother to vote in this state, If somebody starts a movement to migrate all of us red-staters together, I think I’ll sign up. As a matter of fact, maybe it is time to divide the US into 2 countries.

The really sad part is Kalifornia is undoubtedly going to expect the responsible citizens of the rest of the country to save them from themselves. Elections have consequences and Kalifornia should be forced to pay their own bills! Bankruptcy is a cleansing process for the mismanagement of capital and there isn't a state in the union that needs cleansing more than Kalifornia.......

"I agree, but I also worry this might be one of the first tests our new majority fails."

If they fail this test, they will be voting themselves back out in 2012. The GOP had better pay attention or there will be a new third party that cannibalizes the corpse of the Old Party.

I have come to have such a dislike for the leftists that I am actually glad about California’s turn left. We get to watch them suffer more. Problem is when they move out of state they bring their leftist ideology with them, polluting otherwise good states. Maybe the democrat government will build a wall around California (except along Mexico of course) to keep the people and employers from leaving...

I’ll gladly second that thought. Californicate takes a step backward and re-elects the moonbeam; but, here in Texas, we are able to defeat the likes of Chet Edwards, Bill White, etal-it’s not a bad morning after.

I wanted to win in some of the big blue states last night. But looking back we may be better off having come up short. There were three states, where we lost governor's races last night, where we are better off for doing so. California, Illinois and New York will face total fiscal collapse next year. With GOP control of the House there will be no federal bailouts. So the dems will now have to either make the big cuts, or completely collapse. If we had RINOs in charge of those states nothing would be different, except that we would take the blame.

Let the big blue three collapse. We will move in and pick up the pieces when it is all over.
