Let the aliens have L.A. Then, if they would just get rid of San Francisco and Sacramento, this would be a nice place. We could take the State back and I wouldn't even have to move.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. ― Samuel Adams
