  •  California is already in the process... (7+ / 0-)

    ...of destroying its educational system; in our school district, employees (staff and teachers) are due for a 7.5% pay cut in the 1020-1011 school year.  I don't know why anyone would work for the state at this point.

    Meggy didn't point to the biggest problems in CA, of course - the arcane state constitutional rules that allow a small, functionally insane group of Republican legislators to terrorize the remainder of the state by refusing to allow increases in taxes; giving corporations billions in tax breaks, and a state retirement system that took a serious beating at the hands of investment banks peddling specially-concocted, imploding CDOs that included mortgage-backed securities, the value of which no one now knows (which has turned the state retirement ystem into ne big perpetually-underfunded liability).  With respect to the last point, Meggy should be talking about going after the companies that sold us that crap.

    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.
