California is bankrupt. Does it mean Apple, IBM, Cisco etc are going down? Does it mean that thousands of successful small businesses are going down? Holywood? What does it mean to you? What services provided by the government do you care about? What do you want the government to do for you? What if you hear that the French government is bankrupt or the Swedish? Is it the same as the California government going bankrupt or the federal government for that matter? How much do we depend on the government in California or the USA as a whole? How about traders from other countries, how much do you depend on your government?
