Well, you'll be happy to know that CA will crash and burn one of these days, and State employees won't be getting nearly the retirement benefits they thought they would.  There is NO POSSIBLE WAY we can pay all of those retirees.  It's estimated that CA has a $1Trillion unfunded pension liability between state and local, and the hinky accounting they allow make it impossible to know for certain.  We will be fleeing the state in about 3 years, to sell our house before the market crashes and people start heading for the hills (I give it 10-15 years).

Yeah, I know that doesn't make it better to live in a state that is on the opposite end of the spectrum.  Sorry.

We're not going broke. We're just hiring immigrants to work in the prisons (but can't find enough), prison staff members are being assaulted and murdered due to shortcuts being taken, and many parolees are going unsupervised for months at a time. I'm sure there's a happy medium.

I only have a handful of pre-req classes to finish and am submitting my applications to medical school for next year's class. So, thusly, my goal is to become a physician, and my dream is to become a surgeon.  Big Grin I'd encourage anyone who wants it to pursue it. There's always a way to make it work.

My brother just graduated medical school last week and begins residency as an ER Physician next month. It is a rigorous journey and you will miss family events/milestones but if it is your passion then it is very rewarding. Good luck on your journey!
