The California government is in bad trouble. As usual, the prodigal son wants to be bailed out by the responsible brothers. Except this prodigal son wants to continue his lavish lifestyle. It is suggested that California solve its problems by dividing into five states. As usual, the suggestion is selfish and very short-sighted. I am perfectly willing to see California independent or joining Mexico. It would be a great boon to the United States to get rid of it. But we don’t need eight more Pelosis and Boxers in the Senate to outvote the dwindling decent states.
