#2 ...Good conservatives will be asking this: at what point will CA have lost its ability to determine its own finances?

Because at that point, they're a territory again. Read yer Constitution to see what that means...

#3 Oh, and a pony too. Revert to territorial status and lose your voting power in Congress till you 'reorganize'. Use the process that 11 Southern states had to go through to regain full status again.

#4 Nah, Obama would never let precious California revert to territory status. He needs the electoral votes and Hollyweird campaign cash in 2012.

#5 California is a vivid example of what happens when Democrats control every facet of government. The rest of us should look long and hard at California and then look at Washington.

#6 "…said state Assembly Speaker Karen Bass, a Los Angeles Democrat. "We're asking for the federal government to step in where commercial banks can't this year because of the crisis within the financial industry."

So ya see… the problem has nothing to do with mismangement after all. Everything would still be all California Dreamin if it wasn’t for that damn Wall Street Greed.

#7 I don't see why Arnold doesn't make a few of his blockbuster movies and give back the proceeds to the California state coffers. It seems the least that he can do.

#9 California is not asking for cash, ....

Until California tells Obama that the state doesn't have cash to pay the loans and will layoff his union supporters unless he makes good on his guarantee. California's revenues will not recover until hyperinflation kicks in.

#10 California has far more clout in Washington than any other state, with the nation's largest congressional delegation and a San Franciscan, Nancy Pelosi, as speaker of the House.

Now they're frightening me.

#11 rwv, look hard?

How about something harder, like a pitchfork?

#12 No more taxes. If you can't manage to find 5000 drones in the 250,000-strong state workforce, I can help ya. Start with about eight of the Governator's assistants at 100K+ per annum. Then move on to the Department of Redundancy Department.

#13 What's required to remove Statehood from a state and put it into Federally Administered Territory status? I think that is what needs to happen.

And no return to Statehood until the situation is resolved. That means not voting and no Federal subsidies for the State as well.

Probably crazy idea, but I'm asking sincerely.
