About damn time people are starting to wake up to this Socialist Dim BS crap (literally). Now do we have enough people in CA any longer that isn't on some form of welfare aid to bring the Republican Party to lead the House, Senate and Governorship to lead the state? I doubt it but I'm sure going to push for it.

A lot of welfare sucking the life out of this state and Dims just keep dishing more. Makes you wonder just how low they're willing to go.

@Elaines2cents @JM

Death spiral sad to say. Could be fixed, maybe, but it would require a lot of sacrifice some thing so many are not going to be willing to accept.

@Buddy

They are willing to tax every last penny, totally eliminate the middle-class. The wealthy will just move funds and protect themselves, the poor have no money.

@Elaines2cents

@JM
And when the poor have less and less money they become the "slave class" to the elite... at least that's the goal of the leftists here.

True, create dependence, Socialism an easier sell! Indoctrination, from education in class. Convincing parents and students to borrow money for a worthless education and burdening them with debt.

@Buddy @Elaines2cents

@JM
Higher education has been pushed as the "answer to all your problems". I can't count how many times I heard growing up that all I need to be successful is to go to college and get a degree... and that's it! No advice on how to save, manage the debt, what degrees to choose, etc. And staff advises students to take out the maximum amount the loans allow. Insanity

So true, growing up very poor I learned from my parents mistakes. I have always been very careful with money and wait until I can afford something and get the best deal at hand. Out of eight of us, not all learned this, to each their own.

@JM

Amen. I've learned from my parents/grandparents that if I can't pay cash for it....I don't need it.

Exactly. It shocks everywhere we purchase, no credit card! 😃 Waiting for the right opportunity, usually works out for us when making major purchases. We had been looking to replace our living room furniture for two years. We wanted top grain leather and quality manufacture. The wait was worth it, one of the places we would purchase from went out of business. We saved 75% on a stationary leather sofa and recliner both close to top line.

This is something I was always taught and it applies to many different things in our lives as well without getting too specific.
