    I'm not sure.
    The prez did like the big hair types, but....mostly....Bill's type were not that great looking.
    It's kind of embarrassing.
    You'd think the leader of the free world would be more discerning.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    That area just east of Monterey around Salinas is known as the "Salad Bowl of America."

    Catroville just north of Monterey is the "Artichoke Capital of the World."

    That "Ram Rod Club" in San Fransisco that looks like a country western bar isn't country western.
    You're also close to Fort Ord which manages somehow to have the opposite of the good weather and sights you get at Carmel.

    That means they stole too much money from the citizenry.
    How did they do that?

    So you support stealing.

    True that Bill's choice of women seemed to be lower but look at who he is married to.

    Much like the propaganda in the OP. Those are low paying low wage jobs, the type that means people pay little in taxes. Nevermind the ubiquitous tales of people and business leaving here.

    Did you read the OP? Yet another super special emergency tax, which btw they have no intentions of cancelling now that the super emergency is done. And if you thought they might just use that surplus to pay down their debt, nope, same OP says they're giving all that and a few million more to education. Effectively saying they don't have a surplus, but a debt after all.

    You misspelled that, it's "dumb" not "dem".

    Yet you would forsake Calyfornia for "cool to places like texas, colorado and arizona"inspite of the fact that they have a lower average pay rate then Calyfornia.

    Cost of living is also way less, so you come out good. AND you don't get hit with super fun emergency taxes that last forever after.

    Fort Ord seems to be on the wrong side of the tacks.

    So how has those great plans for Fort Ord turned out ?

    There sure were a lot of soldiers from California and other western states that did their basic at Fort Ord.

    I know Clint Eastwood served at Fort Ord and Jimi Hendrix did his basic training at Fort Ord. Everyone I know who was drafted did their basic at Fort Ord.
