  • Remember, if the Federal government bails out California pension programs, they will edify decades of poor fiscal planing and political bribery through funding pet programs to buy votes. Let bankrupt areas resettle through free markets and not by building from a poor, corrupt foundation.

  • CA is expensive because it’s actually a desirable place to live. Go ahead and move to Nevada where it’s so hot that you don’t even want to leave your house. There’s absolutely nothing to do, little diversity, and your only option to eat out is Applebee’s. Despite how expensive CA is, a lot of people make it work. The people that complain and threaten to leave are the same people that vote for presidents based on trivial issues such as the price of gas.

  • The state hasn't found a way to give people what they need? Thats because they're too busy taking it from them with insane taxes every time you turn around. The problem isn't that the state "doesn't do enough" it's that they do too much. When you charge 15k / year for a barely adequate house in order to "provide services" is it any wonder so many people are homeless?

When will people of this world realize that wherever you go, there you are?? Running away from one place, hoping to be "rescued" by a new location, will only keep you where you were. FIX YOUR OWN DAMN PLACE INSTEAD OF F*CKING UP EVERYONE ELSES. That goes for countries as well as states, or even cities! You let it sink down. It's up to you guys to bring it back up.

  • Graham, you’re so shockingly naive about the homeless situation. California is ENABLING it. Almost all....ALL homeless people are there because of drug addiction. That’s a self-sabotaging decision loop. It’s not my problem or your problem UNTIL you expect us to pay for their poor decisions. We cannot solve a problem that doesn’t want to be solved. All we end up doing is inflaming it. Such is the case with ALL PROGRESSIVE CITIES. Keep that naive attitude in California and don’t bring it with you. California’s exodus is infecting other states with its nonsense politics!!!!!

  • Every solution and every problem is a social and economical one- the unfortunate thing is politics just skews everything for re-election instead of making actual solutions. Everything that he mentioned has a “leftist” solution however the state is ran by “leftist” politicians who are just damn career politicians who are only out for themselves. It’s not the left that are the problem, it’s the damn career politicians like Dianne Feinstein who mask themselves as leftist and just grown their own wealth term in and term out.

  • The "75 degree weather year-round" is a total lie. I lived in Orange County for 16 years, and we had 90 degrees in February, and up to 115 degrees in the summer. Basically you live in a desert. Cold, cold nights and scorching days. Unless you live on the beach, or near the coast in San Diego (not LA), you'll never see the fabled "year round good weather". The only thing worse than the weather/traffic/taxes was the insane politics and how these moron politicians wasted the vast amounts of money they collected. I moved out and I'll never vote for a liberal -- I've seen what it does.

  • I left California, too. It was only due to high rent, and now with remote work more normalized, i wanted to get a two bedroom for a home office and a garage I could work on a car project in. If they could get rid of the nimbyism, do a better job with public transport, and get rid of some of the housing regulations, some of that issue could be solved. Other than that, I loved LA. The diversity, the culture, beaches, events, amusement parks, museums, the nightlife, the beautiful women, the internationality of the city being able to always meet people from around the world. The taxes didn’t bother me, and I usually had enough in write offs and deductions that I would rarely ever pay in to state and city business taxes, even being self-employed. I make about 40k more with an LA income than a where I am now income. Its nice being able to save and invest more now, but thats just money that will help me retire a few years earlier. As a country boy raised in the rural midwest, where everyone votes red and my high school friends got married at 17 and lived in their mommas trailer, I’m glad my parents were smart enough to get me traveling and open-minded to change and let me do a year of studying abroad. You learn a whole lot about seeing the world not just as whats in your small community, but whats beyond the horizon, too. LA is a fantastic city because of all that. Yes, it has its bad stuff, but so does rural america. So does every damn city on the planet.

LA is littered with apartments that were built as luxury properties in the 60’s and 70’s, then became crime ridden as the glut hit the market. Those apartments are called the J’s, which became notoriously dangerous in the 1990’s. Which now is starting the gentrifying cycle all over again.

People with a brain that aren't crooked realize what's going on. Those that are crooked remain loyal to the corruption.
