Yep, we have problems

Huffington Post: "De-leveraging the American Dream will not be easy. America's crisis is not at root a banking or financial crisis. It is a crisis of consumer democracy. We have become a diet-coke civilization. Just as we want sweetness without calories, we want consumption without savings, we want good government without taxes; and, lately, with hedge funds and derivatives, we have wanted wealth creation without real production." - Here in California we're really in trouble and most Californian's don't want to do what it takes to fix the problem. So, now we have to live with substandard schooling and large cuts to government services. We don't really notice it as much here in the San Joaquin Valley, we're used to being poor.

Whoever leaves California last, please turn off the lights.
