Syr: Also I really want to respond to GrayWolf448's post, but its so disgusting and hypocritical that I cannot find a way to do so within the bounds of the rules of this forum.
So I'm not going to.
But I will say in general that much of the stupidity doesn't come from within california itself - especially anything to do with money/taxes/budget. That all comes down from the feds.
We will NOT stand idly by and let our civil and human rights be stripped from us and other fellow californians.
i reread my post and i do not see anything hypocritical. all i said was the plain facts that just getting up and walking out of the union isnt that easy. the closest thing i can find to what you would call hypocritical would be the whole think about not liking the forced diversity of places. though the rest of that message is just plain facts, and the last thing is a fear based on what iv been seeing going on (for ex: yahoo firing males to hire more females (if this story was true))
but like kobuk stated you might might want to create another thread about it. maybe i will be able to share/explain my ideas in a better way since i still dont see what is wrong with my post.
as for health care well hopefully you are fine kobuk.. though the whole social security thing running out has been going on for awhile and isnt just due to trump (though he may or may not just get rid of it)
though one of the biggest things is that we really need to stop expecting the government to do everything for us. there are many small things someone can do to improve situations for them selves/others. yes you might need to go through some gov paperwork, buy as long as you just try to keep things localized to a group of people who all think its a good idea, you could likely just have a small petition and get what you want.
one thing is something like welfare. if someone is in trouble financially people should help out a little instead of just saying the gov isnt helping. hell i'd like to help out people who seemed reasonable if i could, though sadly i am in the position of needing help so iv got nothing to give away/help with
trump is a risk, but like i said before its something new to try that hopefully goes well. if things dont go hell, band together and fix it. hell at least trump isnt trying to just randomly ban things (like many people's crazy fear of scary firearms/attachments)
