Mark Mills: California Could Be the Next Shale Boom State
For the State Government it's good news. For the little guy, it's terrible news. Oh yes, it means a lot of good paying jobs. And believe me, that's wonderful. But in the end, more money for the Government Addicts is not good. There is no sating their ravenous appetite for money, money, money. It's like putting a meth addict onboard a boad made out of meth crystals. Once he's devoured the boat, he'll drown and die. The CA government knows no retraint and no bounds.
