    Yeah, and now you guys get to foot the bill for some STUPID TWIT who just had to have kids and now has FOURTEEN. I heard on the news today that the bill for just ONE of the babies will be $160,000 for the up to 12 weeks they will have to stay in the hospital. Lucky you guys...

    Pretty soon the few people who can actually pay the states taxes will all be the hell out of here and shitzinnegger will be left with a trillion dollar deficit and a bunch of screaming babies' mouths to feed and clothe. Then he will try to tax residents of the cali border states the "living in proximity to california" tax. When that fails, the state will fold itself up and jump into the sea.

    I guess cali is the land of free loaders now. I've always thought the welfare here was crazy. Of coarse there is people that need it, but then there is those that don't want to work. When will it end and all that welfare crap was going on before the state went broke. lol. Wonder why that happened?

    They are still trying to think of a way to screw us. The ol' GOVINATOR better think quick. Im personally scared because the more I make the harder I get screw'd. Oh well what are you going to do. Move I guess?

    more people moving out of cali or moving in? my friend in san jose, moved out!...i think paying $14,000 per year in property taxes had something to do with his decision to move.

    (southern) California is fucking expensive, but it is the best place on earth. We have everything you need within a couple hours drive, mountains, snow, ocean, dirt, desert. I dont think any other state can beat that.

    Californians are the world most generous people. I moved there is 1998 and within 5 years they doubled the value of my condo. I could never find a better return on my money anywhere. So in 2003 I took that money that those very generous Californians gave and moved to San Antonio. Where people understand the true value of housing.

    My thanks to all the generous people of California.

    Southern California is the greatest place on earth (30 years ago).

    now they want all these gov't bail outs for their failed mortgages and for the taxpayers to reduce their rates. I say too bad, shouldn't have bought that 1400 sq ft house for 849000 dumb ass.
