UK Guardian: Will California become America's first failed state ?

Possible Epic Fail Alert……. Single State Version.

If world media outlets are picking up the story and ours are not (except for Teh Eeeeevil Fox Nooooooooooos, honest talk radio and some of the blog sites)………..

“Los Angeles, 2009: California may be the eighth largest economy in the world, but its state staff are being paid in IOUs, unemployment is at its highest in 70 years, and teachers are on hunger strike.  So what has gone so catastrophically wrong?”

A few paragraphs into the article, we have…. uh oh….. Alert !  Alert !  Danger Will Robinson, Warning !……… Space Control has spotted a false comparison to an unrelated event and obvious problematic social status assumptions…… that if any known Conservative or Republican offered such wording, they’d be called raaaaaaaaaaacist hate-mongering killers-of-the-poor, etc.

“Outside the Forum in Inglewood, near downtown Los Angeles, California has already failed. The scene is reminiscent of the fallout from Hurricane Katrina, as crowds of impoverished citizens stand or lie aimlessly on the hot tarmac of the centre’s car park. It is 10am, and most have already been here for hours. They have come for free healthcare: a travelling medical and dental clinic has set up shop in the Forum (which usually hosts rock concerts) and thousands of the poor, the uninsured and the down-on-their-luck have driven for miles to be here.”

Now it’s Kenny’s turn to blast away at the wall that’s been preventing him from being labeld a vicious bigoted hate-mongering Republican cracker armed-to-the-teeth Jewboy.

“The scene is reminiscent of the fallout from Hurricane Katrina”…. As far as I know, it’s been pretty decent weather out West lately and fallout only happens with a new-kew-lahr thingy, so whatcha sayin’ Mr. Article Writer….. Teh Eeeeevil Booooooooooosh dropped a new-kew-lahr bomb on N’Orleans ?

“crowds of impoverished citizens stand or lie aimlessly”……… You buggering racist author.  How dare you call those sea-sponge-impersonating Americans lazy !  Oh……. wait……  You might be spot on there.

It is 10am, and most have already been here for hours. They have come for free healthcare”……………… While they could have been standing or lying around aimlessly at home near their own paid-for-by-the-working-taxpayer doctors if the damn uber-liberal state government hadn’t killed their own economy.

“thousands of the poor, the uninsured and the down-on-their-luck have driven for miles to be here.”……………….. If those people you’re talking about are “the poor, the uninsured and the down-on-their-luck”, how’d they get gas money for their cars….. hell…… how do they have cars in the first place ?

I’ll stop now.
