Go west, young man, go west! …Unless you’re into being successful

I seem to recall,
not too long ago, California Governor Jerry Brown saying that his
state’s policies were about “California leading the country,” which, in
turn, could serve as a model for “America potentially leading the
world.” Yet again, Gov. Brown has provided an all-too-apt example of how
these United States could indeed lead the world: by doing the precise opposite of whatever it is California is doing.
It’s a darn good thing California has all of those beautiful vistas
and fantastic recreation to recommend itself, ’cause it doesn’t seem to
have much else going for it. In a

  • Why I moved. Sad. Used to be the finest State in the Union.Now, it has become a clear example of the failures of liberal politics and over taxation.

      I love California. I used to want to live there.
      Now, I only vacation there.
      San Fran is a great place to visit.
      But its like a foreign country.

      San Francisco (The City) may very well be the prettiest city in the world.I have a lot of family there,as my mom was from the Bay Area. My aunt married into a very wealthy and influential Italian family there.She lives in a mansion on Green Street. Great food there as well. I miss it but not sure if I'll ever go back. Anyone working a fulltime job is taxed around 50 to 60 percent of their income if one were to add up Federal,State,Local,Property Taxes,Gas/Fuel taxes,Utility Taxes,and a More..

      Gray "Low Beam" Davis started the downward spiral.9th Circuit Court helped. Arnold had to deal with the liberal leftist scum that has continued ruining the State.

  • California has gone from first state to worst state.
    All in a few decades.
    Thanks, Democrats.

    • @Dear Leader Yeah and the rents and house prices, and taxes are TWICE AS HIGH as everyplace else. 10% sales tax and that's just for starters. So your $100k is the same in buying power as somebody else making half that in another state. With much less regulation and fewer stupid laws.

    • @Dear Leader $100k doesn't go far in California.

    • Sales tax where I live is 8.25%. I pay $1500 for a 3 bedroom 2 full bathroom, 3 story house with a backyard and 2 car garage, right near SF. It all depends what city you live in. I could live in SF with the same house for 3K if I wanted to spend the money.

    • @Punch_The_Monkey It does if you know where to live and know how to spend it. I have been living here for 37 years and keep making more money every year.

    • @Dear Leader yeah, sorry about that. It didn't sound too good. It's just that everything is so expensive in CA. If you're working for yourself and making 6 figures, you're doing well.

  • I can't wait to get the Hell out of this state.

    Coincidentally, all of the other states listed (New York, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan) also have the toughest gun control laws. I don't know what the correlation could be if any, but it's true. Another reason i'm never living in any of them.
