I've been out of the loop regarding CA for a while. I'm back in the saddle, covering my favorite whipping boy. And it's important that we keep track of this Failed State. Mainly - and sadly - because "As CA goes, so goes the nation."
To be forewarned is to be forearmed. To see where the nation is headed, one only has to watch the slow motion train wreck of CA to be prepared.
Criminals on the whole aren't completely stupid. They obviously do a risk/reward assessment and have come to the conclusion that Proposition 47 is a win-win for them.
