If you live in California and you love California you know there is no other state or country where you'd rather live. Every place has problems, faults and foibles. No other place but California has so many rewards, pleasures or diversity in every shape, features and revelations daily. Not to mention the extraordinary opportunities here for dreams and drive.

If you don't like California that's perfectly fine. California is not for everyone. It's hard and a lot of work to live in paradise. And yes, just like Robert wrote, I love living here with all the eccentricities and crazy taxes. I was born in California and California is deep in my blood and bones.

If you don't like California, that's OK. Please stay where you are and enjoy the heck out of it. If you do live here just to complain the solution is quite simple, find somewhere that makes you happy and move there. Nothing gets older faster than complaining. And nothing and no one looks worse by comparison than someone complaining.




p.s. Merry Christmas & a Very Happy New Year

I echo Chris' statement.


And we are happy to have people hate California, maybe they will quit moving here ha ha!


I sat outside last night, running trains and in short sleeves, it's just awful.


Years ago, when I had to go to Colorado quite often, the people there complained about all the Californians moving there, ruining the place... I told them that we would quit doing it if they would stop all the people moving to California, ruining the place.


It's almost like the battery vs. track power endless argument. My way is better than your way and your way sucks.


Greg from San Diego, just awful weather and climate, you are right California sucks!

Yeah, living in Southern California is real H-ll. It just happens to be the best H-ll on earth.

I agree with Chris. The only thing that seemed to be a problem, it used to be that when ever I read a label there was almost always a sentence that said, "Known to cause Cancer in California". Not seen so much anymore, maybe California found a cure for Cancer.

Wife and I lived in San Clemente for 3 Years while I was in the Marine Corps. It was like being on a Hunny Moon. Best weather in the world.No Musquito to bite You and the Ocean and all the things to do, We still go back to see good friends and of course Disneyland, Love California .No Humidity. We love Southern Calf. When We were there the palm trees were up to My Forehead, Now they are 40 ft tall
