Yes, the Golden State has crossed that threshold: it is no longer simply a misguided state that is in need of adult supervision. It has now progressed into a full fledged 3rd world country.
In-flows of illegals have swamped the social safety net long ago. Emergency rooms at hospitals now resemble Cuban waiting rooms with sick illegal aliens piled to the ceilings waiting for a nurse practitioner to come by with a Band-aid and an aspirin (to treat a broken arm caused by another illegal immigrant pushing them down into the street after stealing their shopping cart filled with all of their worldly possessions).
The homeless (aka bums, hobos, vagrants, I've already covered this) are now everywhere you look in California (except Belair and Beverly Hills, I've already covered this as well).
The San Joachin Valley used to be the bread basket of America, and it's now dried up because politicians chose to protect the snail darter from extinction (huh?) and let millions of acres of productive farmland dry up as they diverted irrigation water back out to the ocean (huh?).
Forest fires burn out of control as politicians have buckled to leftist organizations such as the Sierra Club's demands that clearing brush and over growth from forests be halted in order to save the environment (huh?).
Now PG&E (Pacific Gas and Electric, the villain in "Erin Brockovitch") is cutting off electricity to around 800,000 Californians to preemptively avoid catching anything on fire during high winds and dry conditions (which California is known for most of the year).
People in 3rd world countries have it better off than many Californians currently. And we can attribute all of California's woes to their affinity to elect and re-elect liberal politicians state wide, from dog catcher to governor. Year in and year out.
You would think they would learn. Nope, no learnin' goin' on in The Golden State.
