    And you can add to that California's use of the the police force as an income source, total disregard for personal liberty in regards to freedom from government intrusion into your life. You have to have a license for everything...practically need one to rake the leaves in your yard. Water shortages, rolling brown outs, 9.5% sales taxes.

    Hell, that sorry excuse for "music" that came out of Watts and Compton should have been enough to instigate a napalming of the place.

    Just because some dudes wrote down that something was a mental illness doesn't make it so. Your excerpt says that one in four suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder. Have you read the DSM? LOL Everything you can think of is in there, so no big surprise, eh?

    There is a RADICAL difference between having some form of diagnosable disorder and needing mental health treatment.

    I almost moved to California twice. My dad worked out there for about 6 months. He hated it, and I'm eternally grateful that I didn't move there. The headline doesn't surprise me.

    Born and raised in California, have traveled everywhere, and would never leave.

    California, similar to New York, is the hub of culture. Movies, music, fashion, art, social change, it all starts in California and slowly works it's way across the nation. There is a reason California has a GDP double that of every other state in the US and rivals most European countries.

    On top of that we have almost year round 72 degree sunny weather with skiing within a two-hour drive of anywhere during the winter, widely available great PRIVATE school systems, top hospitals in the country, and a healthy mix of political parties.

    I will say Californian's are much more vane people then a lot of the country (excluding New York). We like our high value cars, big houses, and fit bodies.

    the recession probably has contributed to worsening mental health for even more people, said the lead author of the study, David Grant.

I'm from a state where you can ski AND surf on the same day. You can see celebrities walking down the street and then hit a library with the budget of a small Midwest city. Why should I care what people in Nowhere'sville USA say about us?

    Hi, I'm Californian. And I'm proud to be insane.



    Oh wow, if you can see celebrities walking down the street that sooo cool ***Swoon**

    Most people do, which is why California has a $70+ billion dollar tourism industry, higher then any other state in the US.
