    Now this is both very funny and very sad.

    My Lord, no wonder people make fun of California so often! This is clearly the decision of a group of clowns.

    Hopefully, the guy is fired before he even starts. The people of San Bernadino deserve better.

    They voted for Obama. Twice!

    Not to worry, Cali will be getting the big bailout as long as they keep voting Dem.

    I was at a Starbucks a couple of weeks ago north of LA off the 101 near Topanga Canyon and the kid serving me and another guy from my company started talking like that...."Dude...ya know...cool...like dude, yah know..." and we both started to laugh out loud. We honestly couldn't help it and even the kid was laughing....but I doubt he knew why we were laughing.

    Prolly a nice kid....but he was the California Kid that day!

    Make fun of California all you want. It was once the greatest state in these United States. It used to rank 7th overall in the world as an economy, that is ranked as a state against all other countries.

    I lived in California most of my life. And, Californians fought the process that has led to what is California today. We voted to stop the money hemorrhage that illegal aliens had on the state. Things like having classes taught in spanish and english in every grade. Saying no to paying for illegal children to go to school on California's dime. We voted against having our DMV have to have every form and publication in 26 different languages... The list goes on and on, and in each case the majority vote was over turned by the California Supreme Court.

    I had enough and got out about 6 or 7 years ago. I LOVED living in California, but everything was crashing down. And, no matter what anyone on this board says that biggest problem was illegal aliens, period. I am sure someone will call me racist for this post, seems to be SOP for this board, but the truth is the truth.

    California is probably the nicest state in the country for all it offers geographically. Ocean, Mountains. wine country, the Redwoods, Southern Cal weather & beaches, Big Sur and under-rated northern Cal forests......and California girls/women!!!:rocker:

    All I get to see when I go there is LAX north on 405 to 101 west for 7-8 miles and then reverse it when I go home. Every now & then, we do something fun like going to Catalina Island 2 years ago for a day of team-building. Super beautiful! Reminded me in some way of Martha's vineyard but more hilly.

    California's politicians have made a mess of things. so it's up to the voters to make changes for the better. And I doubt that means spend more money.

    I love Northern Cal. Not Southern Cal so much. California will come back. It's America. They have everything and they're not done.

    Not human can be perfect.

    California, to me, is the bee's knees. Weather, lifestyle, melting pot of cultures....

    But their politics is just bizarre.....

    That's.....Bi-ZZAH....don't ever lose your Boston accent. Women around the country LOVE it. Especially Cali girls! Yeh, I know you're married, but you can still flirt.

    Funny/Ironic story with the who Boston accent thing.

    When we lived in Cincinnati my sister had to repeat kindergarten because she, the school said, had a issue with her speech.

    We moved up here when she started 1st grade, which gave her a full year to work out the kinks.

    The first thing my parents noticed on getting here was that she didn't have an issue with her speech...she had a Boston accent.

    True story :)

    I don't think you get it. The voters have been voting for change year after year and they just get to see their votes nullified by the courts, it is all a sham.

    Nope no insult. All accents are created equally.

    well maybe except for an Australian* accent...thats the best.

    *A real deal one. Not Crocodile Dundee's.

    Because Florida election of a Governor was so much more ethical.

    We've never bailed out a state and I highly doubt we'll start now.

    Cali is on their own as they should be. I doubt they want to be the Greece of the United States...but then again, maybe they do.

    More ethical than what....don't even know what the heck you're talking about.

    San Bernadino HIRED this guy...he wasn't elected by popular vote and a city in CA has nothing to to do with a governor's election in FL.

    San Bernadino basically hired a known loser....a PROVEN loser...and they hired him anyway. So go figure.

    California was a great state and the Democrats ruined your home.

    Obama is trying to make the rest of US look like California. RIP California.

    As a country, we never mandated that everyone buy health care insurance either. We never had a Muslim President either.

    All sorts of new firsts are coming. Just wait and see.

    Yes!

    Now THERE is the wisdom that Orly Taitz, Donald Trump, Dick Morris, etc. laid on the Republican Party to totally mislead the Right into defeat. I swear, one day we will find out they were on some Democratic Party strategist's payroll all along.

    Keep babbling, Triumph! The more people like you do, the more ignorant and out of touch the Right will continue to be. Hey, got any good stuff about Obama's birth certificate or how he really is a Commie???? Please give us more!

    Enjoy living the rest of your life under Democratic Presidents! :D
