Will California become a land without a middle class?
I have not put a lot of thought into this. Was thinking maybe you guys could do that.
I just read that 4 of the top 14 least affordible housing markets are Califonia cities.
Is it possible that in the future only the very rich and the poor that serve them will live in California?
Whats to stop something like that from happening?
You. You are the frame pump noob.
then I did it and crawled into bed with my gf and that aspect alone changed EVERYTHING. It felt soooo good
Yes, that will probably happen, provided California doesn't slide into the ocean.
If a little of it slide in that would be okay. Then I would have beach front property and I could become one of the rich.
If you try to fail, and succeed, which have you done?
As long as the state continues to work against its number one job creating machine, California's future to have the most robust Middle Class in the US will not be achieved.
If you don't get an answer to your question it doesn't necessary mean you made one or that you deserve one.
I don't know how you guys define the middle class, but as far as I'm concerned I am middle class, and I feel absolutely no danger at being tossed out of the Golden State.
Mapie is a conventional looking former Hollywood bon viveur, now leading a quiet life in a house made of wood by an isolated beach. He has cultivated a taste for culture, and is a celebrated raconteur amongst his local associates, who are artists, actors, and other leftfield/eccentric types. I imagine he has a telescope, and an unusual sculpture outside his front door. He is also a beach comber. The Rydster.
Frankly, California is by far the most attractive state in terms of livability that I have visited, and I have visited many.
I do plan on moving there in the near future. It's a beautiful state.

Make sure you bring plenty of money! The state is always broke and it can sure use it.. or waste it rather..

2) Today, the United States actually has a higher percentage of workers doing low wage work than any other major industrialized nation does
3) In the United States today, the wealthiest one percent of all Americans have a greater net worth than the bottom 90 percent combined.
4) According to Forbes, the 400 wealthiest Americans have more wealth than the bottom 150 million Americans combined.
5) The six heirs of Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton have a net worth that is roughly equal to the bottom 30 percent of all Americans combined.
6) At this point, the poorest 50 percent of all Americans collectively own just 2.5% of all the wealth in the United States
7) At this point 48 percent of all Americans are either considered to be "low income" or are living in poverty

What's the matter with Kansas? Follow the money. Guns and god are often put out to distract American voters from what has happened. I still wonder if Romney paid a dime some years.
