When there's nobody left except those on the dole and those who work for the government, I wonder who will pay the bills.

Socialism's fatal flaw:
"What do you do when you run out of other peoples money"
The bigger question is, who's gonna get there first, Kalifornia or Taxachusetts?
Both are screwed beyond help at this point.
Odingo-BOY can't print anymore money and the Chinese ain't interested in buying much more of our bogus bonds.
What of the national ramifications to the rest of America when these two socialist swamps collapse?

It will depend who controls Congress and the White House. If the Democrats are in power, there will be a bailout. If the Republicans are in power, there will probably still be a bailout but at least there may be some strings attached. The sad thing is that there are still enough people in MA to take control of things, but they are not engaged. The level of participation in the political sphere is pitiful. The Dems. do a great job of getting their constituency to the polls and the rest sit on their hands. The RTC's and the Mass. GOP have proven themselves impotent.

The troubles in California could have an impact given the state's size and exports but Mass is truthfully small potatoes and doesn't supply the rest of the world with any unique exports. If there is anything we supply other than liberalized education, it came be supplied by others as well. Given what has happened in Europe with the debt crisis, my bet is that demand for liberalized education will be falling very soon and hopefully for good.
