California is polluted, crowded, over taxed, over regulated, is chasing longtime residents out while welcoming folks in who may not be a net plus for state coffers. And some folks in Cali want to secede?
Seriously, I don’t see many people in the rest of the country, except Attorney General Sessions, saying “don’t go.”
We love California, as we’ve said in the past. But Cali needs to get its act together.

Forget the Golden State. California should be called the Smoggy State.
Eight of the USA’s 10 most-polluted cities, in terms of ozone pollution, are in California, according to the American Lung Association‘s annual “State of the Air” report, released Wednesday.
The Los Angeles/Long Beach area took the dubious distinction of being the nation’s most ozone-polluted city as it has for nearly the entire 19-year history of the report.
Check the apologism in the attached article. The reason Cali has all the smog, we are told, is because of climate change and it would be “much worse off” without all its hyper regulation.
Really? Both points are very much open for discussion. One thing that is not open for discussion at this point is the poor quality of California leadership. The one party state continues to implode, albeit slowly. As we’ve highlighted multiple times here, California, when factoring cost of living, IS THE POOREST STATE IN THE USA per capita. It is also one of the most polluted.
Sounds like the land of milk and honey to me. Hey is that Tom Joad’s ghost I see hitchhiking back to Oklahoma?
