The Great Rise and Fall of the California Empire

Posted by redsatellite on February 22, 2008

I know it seems like I’m picking on California lately. But I can’t help it….what once was an amazing land of opportunity, beauty, and exciting possibility has turned into an absolute living, breathing-hell.

A drive-by attack followed by a wild shootout between gang members and police shut down dozens of blocks of Northeast Los Angeles for nearly six hours Thursday afternoon, stranding thousands of residents, keeping students locked in their classrooms and leaving two people dead.

Veteran L.A. Police Department officials described the bizarre midday shootings — and the widespread disruption they caused — as highly unusual even in an area known for gang activity. It left the neighborhood littered with shell casings and its residents fearful.

Unusual? Uh….not any more padre. California is in a downward spiral….a tragic ending to a once great state. Southern California in particular is now a cess pool of gang violence, illegal aliens, and abject DYSFUNCTION on every level.

I should know…..I lived there for 23 years. It now reads like a dark and angry Stephen King novel….with a horrible ending.

As police swept through the neighborhood, parents waited anxiously for word about their schoolchildren and other residents remained either stuck inside their homes or kept back by police barricades.

Makes your heart soar with love and hope.
