CA: Golden State to welfare state

CA: Golden State to welfare state

Golden gate bridge, wikimediaReader Manfred von Borks, Sc.D., sent us his analysis of what happened to California:

California – The transition from a Golden State to a Warehouse/Welfare State:  In the beginning there was real gold in the ground and the people came, then WWII and a relaxed California was instantly transformed into a major 24/7 military/industrial complex manufacturing everything from WAC bra’s to munitions, electronics, ships, vehicles, airplanes, lots of movies and all that was needed to win the war. And soon thereafter came a vast construction and transportation industry closely followed by an advanced high tech industrialized society manufacturing everything with a booming electronic and aerospace industry in the forefront supported by thousands of associated suppliers and vendors, the workers of which in turn were served by more thousands of small business’s catering to all their needs and wants, and all of the above created more jobs than there were takers providing every high school kid that wanted one a part-time after school job, and life in California was good…

    Wow, exactly what I have been saying since the late 10980’s, early 1990’s.

    Our manufacturing base, the backbone of any successful nation, has been destroyed. And not just in CA but across the entire nation. In CA it has been worse though.

    Without building products we will never be a prosperous state (or nation) again. Add in the completely ridiculous compensation government trough feeders have scammed and it is a 100% forgone conclusion that we are morally, ethically and financially bankrupted the state (and nation)

    Yes, It is a bigger issue than Cal. The standard of living is stagnant to decline, shielded by cheaper access to entertainment(Rome?), and some technology based improvments(health). These are great, but the decline will be more evident over time, as some of the world catches up to the USA. It is what is; people have made their choices. Ignorance and sloth run amuck. There are still a wonder of opportunities for entrepeneurs, but they face a world of government paid parasites, which historically stifles new startups, because of increased demand for taxes.
    These leeches don t start up anything except jet-skis, motorcycles, and convertibles. Not a creative lot. Many walk around with a deer in the headlights stare, content with their fortune, and stifling lack of creativity(hard to tell if it stupidity or a byproduct of govt “service”.)

      We all know these RAGWUS feeders, some know what is taking place and you can talk to them about it, but the vast majority have no idea what their unions are doing to the real people that pay the bill, and quite a few believe that the outrage of people like us is jealousy, when in fact is has to do with being robbed by a system created by the RAGWUS feeding fools themselves. 🙂

        Well Ntheoc, my disgust lies with the RAGWUS system of stealing from the taxpayers, and little else. 🙂

    That’s not an analysis. It’s a rant. Looks very much like a Seilerism.

    Any relation?

    Rolling taquitos in a taco shop does nothing for economic productivity nor selling cheapo clothes in a big box store.
