I'll not get into anything too heavy on the state of the economy in California; or on my views of what an idiotic group of people we've got in legislature who don't seem to care that everyone besides them is suffering because they can't get their job done (umm; oops!). We're broke, a whole state is simply out of money as is either not paying it's bills or paying in IOU's; how is it that sending an IOU on a bill would not fly for a regular person; but a whole state can do it and it's perfectly acceptable; or just flat out not paying bills in the first place?

Don't get me wrong; I love California, I find it a very hard place to want to leave despite all the "problems" it has. But I read this article the other day and it kind of broke my heart.
"Ever since gold miners first scraped their fortunes out of the hills of northern California, America's most populous state has been a land of titanic dreams. These days, though, it's a place with even bigger problems. Its $42 billion budget deficit would make an out-of-control Hollywood director blush — and bankrupt a small nation. Its schools are failing, air quality is worsening, and unemployment neared 10% as of December."

But through thick and thin; I'll not turn my back on my beloved state just as I hold true in my allegiance to the 49ers! I know good things will come out of all of this; who knows, maybe my dream of owning a house in California will be possible sooner then I thought! I have decided that this is the only blog I will write on the subject of California's economy; it's not happy news and everyone living here already spends way too much time thinking about it.
