Heck, stop the trains for a week and see what happens.
California has had many budget issues over the years, until the budget is passed, many state workers (including law enforcement) were provided with I.O.U.s instead of actual paychecks..some banks didn't honor the IOUs..so those workers effectively didn't get paid... Yet, the system didn't collapse..and riots didn't happen..folks just protested and told the elected representatives to do their jobs...


The infrastructure isn't as "fragile" as folks think it is...

without a natural disaster to eliminate governmental control, the system works very well...
