Which End of the Boat Sinks First? - Dueling Between Democrats and Republicans

The fiscal situation in California is dire and to call the once golden state a sinking boat is not exaggeration at all.  Look at some top stories on today's San Francisco Chronicle and you'll understand:
Governor Jerry Brown proposed deep services cuts for the poor and middle class, hoping to get support from Republicans to put a temporary tax extension on a special election ballot.  But deadline came and went and he got no support.  The huge imbalance of public workers pensions and benefits are not addressed by the Democrats either.  One would hope these two ruling parties would barter some of these.  No.  If anything same can be done, we are not in California.

The Republicans and Democrats, sitting in two ends of this leaking boat, instead of working together to scoop out water and fix the leakage, are fighting tooth and nail to ensure that the other end of the boat sinks first.

This is not confined to California alone.  It is being played out from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania!

It is being played out from the snowcapped Rockies of Colorado!

It is being played out from the curvaceous slopes of California!

It is being played out from Stone Mountain of Georgia!

It is being played out Lookout Mountain of Tennessee!

It is being played out every hill and molehill of Mississippi.  From every mountainside, it is being played out.

A dream or a nightmare?
