    The current crop of idiots inherited an amazing infrastructure they have allowed to deteriorate. In many ways it is symptomatic of how the baby boomers in general have spent the civilization they inherited but never had the humility or wisdom to appreciate. They confronted the flaws of racism, sexism, sexual repression, hypocrisy, religious bigotry, environmental degradation, war mongering, and meaningless labor because they were granted the luxury to ignore practical necessity. Hedonistic rebellious youth unaccustomed to the harsh realities of life who could never rise above platitudes.

    It is not just the left's fault because the right has always been hypocritical in regards to the meritocracy. Little wonder that useless tech, the entertainment industry, sports and race baiters have been placed so highly in the merit hierarchy in opposition to that hypocrisy. Bread and circus always seems to replace virtue and meaning when a society is at it's material zenith.

    Europe seems to have given up on Western Civilization the question is if California can resist that nihilism and return to rational self interest.
    I am reminded of the famous Ghandi quote:

    When asked "What do you think of Western Civilization?" he said "I think it would be nice."

    It's a long, long fall from the top.

    They don't call them "illegals". They call them "migrant workers".

    Look at the positive: it's becoming a dumping ground for homeless and illegals, while jobs and businesses flow into better states.

    Exactly. The disease of Rampant Liberalism is spreading all over the West, including attempt to Californicate Colorado which we are resisting so far.

    But one thing is certain - we do not need or want our West Coast and ports controlled by illegals. That goes directly against national interests and national security.
