    I use the term minutiae daily, in surgery for example.

    I am very happy for you.

    Attempting to use raw numbers, rather than effective rates, to paint California is some sort of liberal dystopia is rather dishonest.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Its still a valid point-thats a truly huge number, and its become a magnet.

    I wouldn't vote to kick any out. I woudn't be heartbroken is some chose to leave including portions of California, NY, and any other blue State which a large contention of Liberals.

    I do really like SD though.
    As a general rule, you get what you pay for. There's a reason that the prices and taxes are what they are out here.

    I used to believe that as well.... but after I left Cali, those "reasons" became largely bull****.

    other than beachfront property ( for the rich) and better welfare benefits ( for the poor), Cali has nothing you can't find elsewhere , at far far more reasonable and appropriate prices.
    as far as economics go, it's insane for a run of the mill middle class worker to live in Cali.

    personally, I miss aspects of the culture... the beach/surfer culture, to be more specific.
    that particular culture is unrecognizable in comparison to what it was 30-40 years ago.... but I still vacation there occasionally ( primarily Laguna beach)
    Texas "beach culture" is non-existent... the beaches absolutely suck here ( in comparison), but everything else is much better.
