The Day After California

Its up to debate whether California will sink into the ocean or not but there is no debate that our state is falling into financial disaster. The top breaking news for California today is that the projected deficit for California is nearly $21 billion:
California's finances have been so bad that the governor's finance director, Mike Genest, told a budget forum in Washington last week that back in February he had combed through the U.S. Constitution to research whether California could legally declare bankruptcy -- or revert to some kind of territorial status. (Neither was realistic, he determined.)
Hmm...declaring bankruptcy or stop being a state and become a territory of the United States.

Movies that depict the end of the world such as 2012 or The Day After Tomorrow are quite popular at the box office.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has already held a statewide garage sale to help raise money for the state. Maybe he should do a movie about the end of California called "The Day After California" and donate the box office profits to Sacramento.
