Unhappy

I recall as a youth in the 1950s visiting California. One uncle was a cattle rancher in central califorina the other a retired FBI agent in Long Beach. What a wonderful beautiful place. The ranch was over taken by urban sprawl in the 1970s. While flying over the area in the 1980s I could not find where it was. Old Trls. and shacks had repalced the long grass range. If Americans ever wonder what happens under socialism needs only to look at the West Coast.

We must all pressure the new conservative House majority to STOP this from happening.

If CA can not lead, it must be allowed to fall. Otherwise every state will look to DC rather that make the tough decisions. Should that reality come to pass, the America we know is doomed.

a/k/a diversity? Just noticing that you are using a term that the White Supremacists use. I wonder why you chose that term.

You can't do anything unless your rich or illegal or both.

Out side of my home town of Corning CA a man planted thousands of acres of trees to harvest for paper and pulp. When it came time to start harvesting he was slapped with an injunction all the envirowackos said it was now a thriving wildlife habitat and that he could not just come and clear cut sections of it. It was a battle for a few years before he was allowed to do with his land what he wanted to do. There was a local farmer that lost an entire crop he planted because he could not spray for insects because of a mud puddle had a rare endangered shrimp that lived in it. He ended up having to sell it off to the local Indian tribe so they could build their casino.

It is so sad to see all the destruction that goes on in CA when it is the most beautiful state of them all. Where else can you ski in the morning and surf in the evening if you really wanted to. My brother works for one of them large corporate farms. I am sure if you eat walnuts or anything with walnuts you have had some of their walnuts. They have hundreds of thousands of acres all over CA growing walnuts. He works 6 days a week 10 hours a day because in CA that is a normal work week for a farm hand. He pulls even more time when it is harvest season more like 7 days a week 16 to 18 hours a day.

Default My Advice

If you have the misfortune to live in CA, you should try to leave. That state is a sinking ship. Jump off while you still can

Very Good Point. I apologize for a probably misguided view, but aside from the women I have not heard many good things about CA, but as my tag says, I'm on the opposite coast so I wouldn't know.

Ever heard of a Redwood?

Lets see Great hunting and fishing. Plenty of forest to play in if you watch it and get stumble upon a pot farm and get shot.

You have everything from Surfing to snow skiing.

Worlds largest Earth Filled dam (Oroville dam)

Shasta Caverns

Friendly people (Out side of the major cities)

If you have eaten a strawberry it has an 80% chance of coming from Ca. every had a prune? Walnuts, almonds, and tons of other stuff.

Amazing water falls (Burney Falls)

Shoot there are some really neat thing to see in San Francisco (It is more than ghay people you know).

Sutters Fort, Sutters Mill (Where the 1894 gold rush started)

Death Valley

It is amazing that I could take you places where you could go 2 months and not see another person unless you wanted to.

The missions they are amazing.

Sacramento has an amazing Train museum.

One of the best gunsmithing schools in the country is located in Susanville CA. Along with Hurlong Army base.

That is just stuff I can throw out there off the top of my head.

It is not the true Californians that want all the crap that is happening.

You can drive down Main St in my home town and wave to people and they smile and wave back.

Oh and a place where Ansel Adams did some of his best work. Yosemite Valley.

Just saying there is a lot more to California than Baywatch and ghay people.

I have been to Cali one time in my life( born and raised east-coaster), there is no doubt it is a beautiful part of the country. The sad thing is, the Liberal government is KILLING the state. Granted many states are in the same boat, like mine, but I think the Cali sheeple-in-charge types will never admit they effed it all up! Denial is a wonderful thing, just ask ANY Lib!

I was pretty much raised in California and it was a great place to live 50 years ago. I lived in the West LA area and there were open fields 60 years ago. I used to ride my bicycle 12 miles to Playa Del Ray to go fishing off the jetties. Now it is wall to wall people.
When CA voted to elect their State Senators by population instead of by county, it was the end. CA ceased to be a Democratic Republic and became a Democracy. No Democracy has ever survived. As soon as the people realize they can vote themselves a free lunch, it is over. There is no way CA can maintain the level of entitlements that are currently on the books and they are trying to get more. The well is dry and no one wants to believe it.

I want to thank all of those who defended California and gave reasons why those of us who live would like to stay and leave at the same time.

Where I live in the High Desert, I am 4 hours from the river, 2 hours from ski resorts, about 3 hours from the ocean. Within hours I can do anything that I want to do, If I could afford it.

With all of the illegal aliens in this state those of us who want to leave because of that and the stupid gun laws cannot because the illegal aliens are taking the jobs and money that should go to us.

Most of the time when you go to a state building the predominate languages spoken is Spanish/Hispanic. My grandson goes to a school where he is a minority because he is white. In addition, he attends a school that is near a location that is called Felony Flats. I am sure the name explains it all.

The Democrats are ruining this state and while many of the people that I know are Republicans and don't vote for those idiots it does not make a differences because there are not enough of us to overrule them.

Sorry about that I usually do not rant like that.

Anyhow you get the idea.
