    I Just got back, I spent a week there for work and loved it. If it wasn't for the liberal, socialistic anti-gun state gov't, it would be a cool place to live.

    Luckily there were none. I even tried sushi at a little restaurant and thought it was pretty good. I never ever thought I would eat raw fish.

    And race riots. Not to mention Gay & Lesbian marches and flag-burning and all manner of anti-American sentiment. And crippling gun control.

    Tac, u b rite on. I lived in PRC from 63 to 98 and it was great from 63 until about the early eighties..I escaped to Santa Fe NM and thought that would be a wonderful retirement WRONG. I have now landed in NW Wa and I think this where the Odyssey will end if for no other reason than I will never move again. I have moved 35,000LBS of STUFF three times in the last 4 years and my hernias have hernias..

    Last time I was in Commiefornia was in 99 to bury my mother, I have no inclination to ever want to go there again.

    Though it was nice being stationed in Diego for a couple of years back in the mid 50s.

    But from what I hear today it is over run by illegals. Then you can go up north to Berkeley where they breed socialistic communistic idealism to the dirt bags that eventually run the states government, and the tax payers pay them to do it.

    I won't get into the limp wrist issues.

    Plus, it is dangerous to try and raise a decent family in some of the larger cities. They seem to be more interested in protecting the law breakers than the victims.

    blah, blah, blah. cardboard cut-out stereotypes, all.
    Sure, there's a kernel of truth to each, but having resided in CA for ~25yrs I can say they are all gross exaggerations (except the screwed up gun laws )

    $1000 reg fee?? My 99 Tahoe was $450.
    Property taxes? My $250k home in a very nice suburb of L.A. is $1200.

    Nice weather. Huge range of outdoor activities (managed to water-ski and snow-ski in the same day, once ). HUGE range of town-types and city sizes, to suit anyone. Entertainment industry. One of the biggest economies in the world.

    And crappy Democratic / Liberal politicos. And earthquakes. And fires. And big-city problems. And illegals. Sounds like a lot of states in the Southern tier, don't it?

    Tired of the rote knee-JERK condemnation of my home-state.

    I used to live in san diego, imperial beach, actually, which is about as southern cal as you can get. I also used to live in Japan, about 2 hours north of Hiroshima. Cal was more foreign and a bigger social change to me than Japan, but Japan lacked the quaintness of the door-to-door crack salesmen, but made up for it beer vending machines.

    I had to sell my car because licensing it would have cost more than I paid for it ( a /72 corvette convertible), but never got to the point I could actually own property.

    rayra, exaggerate? Holy sheep shank, man. Guess you weren't in the same parts of that state I once experienced.
