    Stop making baseless, emotionally driven (read: stupid) assumptions about someone or groups of people you know nothing about and I just may give it a rest.

    Your state has plenty of nuts electing libs the same way Utah and Idaho does. Salt Lake City and Boise come to mind.

    My cousin lives outside of Linden Ca and really likes it. She says it feels like she is back in Oklahoma. What county do you live in?

    Maybe when all the scumbags finish turning Cali into a sh!t hole and move out, working people can move in, rebuild, and make it a decent place to live.

    I never said Arizona or Idaho was perfect. I read they are trying to remove the looney Mayor of Boise. We have Senator enema, and may end up with Kelly. We also get lot of liberal people from back east. We will soon be over run with liberals. It’s not baseless, most Californians move here from the major population centers. They are predominately democrat.

    You were the one making it personal. I’ve been in this forum for a while and if I see something I don’t like I generally avoid it.

    You’re reading things into my post that aren’t there. You’re attacking lots of people here with your lame, broad comments. I just happen to be the only one willing to waste time with you.

    I've been here even longer than the other guy. From now on I'd like to be referred to by the ancient title......"Lord of All He Surveys" or "Lord Marshall" by my friends. Carry on.

    Lot of surf bums around here that fit that profile.

    They might have a better standard of living in a cheaper place but they won't have the same number of surf/ski days per year. Once the knees give out they can ride it out in an RV in Mexico on the beach.

    I grew up not far from there. That is a good description of the area. Just you can get to nice ski resorts within a couple of hours and great surf spots in about the same time.

    Oklahoma would take a hell of a lot longer.

    I won’t “stroke out” and I haven’t forgotten anything. I focused on 1997.

    I am acutely aware of what goes on around here and elsewhere. I study voting records and easily spot false Conservatives like Newt Gingrich and Colin Powell. I’m not swayed by soundbites or money spent. I know where we’ve been, where this country is going and why. Hint: I sent my kid to private, Parochial school, at considerable expense. You people kept John McCain in there for a long time. Looks to me like the good people of ‘Zona could use a civics lesson.

    Ive only recently been able to vote here, i was active duty and this wasn’t my state. We also had Flake, both sucked as politicians. We are still a red state for the moment. We have a republican governor though. Compare the 2 states, i don’t need a permit for conceal or open carry. Almost zero knife laws. ATVs and UTVs can drive on paved roads, not highways or freeways. We haven’t over regulated our businesses. I can order ammo on line and zero mag capacity laws. That’s why we don’t want liberals screwing up this state, no matter where the come from. I’m also very aware of where we are headed.

    Edit, I respect that you sent your kids to a Parochial school.

    I’ve traveled all around this country and I’ve lived through -23 degree winters. I’m ready.

    Especially Bakersfield. That's where the Bakersfield Sound really came from.

    Where I am from everyone called East Stockton "Okieville."
