18. if they stop food stams, welfare and the like too
look for a sharp and I mean SHARP increase in carjackings, robberies, looting of food stores, robbing of food stores, rape, murder, basically anarchy and chaos. I tend to be a pacifist but if I were in California I would either stay home with lots of guns and bullets or go far away, taking with me anything valuable (inculding said guns and bullets). the shit is going to hit the fan.
