In light of Pauls thread I started to think and reminice of my life in CA. I still have my home and heart in CA. Sure we have gun bans. Sure our govt. sucks. Sure the high cost of living sucks however, that can be offset by the high salaries paid as well. Cops can make up to 80K a year in some areas. 1) We have the best weather in the country 2) Best and one of the largest economy in the US 3) The scenery is to die for. We have it all. Deserts, Mountains, rivers, rural, urban, farmlands(where the US get most of its vegetable) and lets not forget the beaches and oceans. I miss: In and Out burgers Great Restaurants, special Chinese, Japanese, Italian, Seafood, and Indian food. The beaches of Mission, Newport and Huntington. Rollerblading on said beaches. Meeting women on said beaches. Nite life that does not end @ 1:00AM. People actually start going out around 8PM here in TX. Weird. I'm not used to going out till 11:00 or so. I miss El Pollo Loco I miss my friends and family. I miss my old routine and my old job. Ah well, enough of that.... Guess I'll go to the Big Town gunshow tomorrow and see if I could pick up that Tec9 or SAR1 I've always wanted.

I used to live in Califorina before the first ban. These are the things I miss alot of: Randy's doughnuts Earthquakes Rollercoasters Cycling on the beach El Pollo Loco In and Out burgers The State lottery (there goes my chances of winning it all.) The drive-by shootings Being harrased by the local fuzz Watching the airplanes coming into LAX in the fog TJs across the border

Hey I almost forgot about those Tiajuana trips for my X-Mas shopping. Man if you have gone there within the past 2yrs that place has changed A LOT!!!

Come on back!!! Get your old job back. Keep your Texas ID and buy as much good stuff as you can afford. Store it out of state of course, we wouldn't want to violate any laws now would we? Keep your out of state ID as long as possible so you can go back and acquire what you need and want. CA is really a great place, except for the stupid gun laws.

Agreed!!! As far as coming back. I will give it till the end of Sept. when my apartment lease is up. If I do not find another job by then I will be coming home. At least I know that there are plenty of jobs in my field in CA.

Hell LT I'd watch out about mentioning being "Proud" in Calif. I thought there are a lot there already claiming to be proud.

I'm proud of where I come from not proud of what its become.

Oh yeah, that Tommy Burger cramp. Love those things. I love my house and where it is and the weather there and the closeness of both the beach and the mountains. Just all those damn liberals. And it is getting worse every day with our sucky educational system. As much as I love where I live I will move someday.

Good schools you say? Try the schools on So. Orange County, CA Saddleback Valley School District has some of the highest test scores in the country.

The headshrink Dr. would call all of this "rationalizing".

I am surprised that more of you Californias do not become part year residents in another state. That way you can buy guns while in that state and you can register to vote there too so you won't waste your vote in California. If I were living there I would become a part-year resident of either Oregon, Nevada, or Arizona. GunLvr
