Yep, Kali has incredible wealth & talent, but let's look at their moonbeam dreams: 1. They thought they could FORCE electric car development, it FAILED 2. They thought they could have a booming economy and avoid electrical generation and transmission, it FAILED 3. They passed a law to simply roll back car insurance rates, now most of LA has no insurance. It FAILED. 4. They think they can live in earthquake and mudslide zones with no consequences. That idea FAILS. 5. They think they can spend, spend, spend, until Orange County went belly up. More FAILURE. 6. They think they can force Smartgun technology. It will FAIL.

have you ever been to kalif ? after reading that it doesnt seem like you have kalif is considered a "progressive" state, where new ideas are formed and tried, and sometimes yes they fail. im not saying they are good ideas from the start or are good in the end, but nothing ventured -- nothing gained. many people in the country reap the Benefits of ideas that were formed and tried in kalif. for all those ideas that are benefical to some, there are people who will suffer. since your in MD you have enough to worry about, so dont worry about kalif and the shit were going through

Beg to differ on a couple of points. First Orange County managed to recover from it debacle. It is still one of the richest counties in America. The bonds that were issued did not default. Although they missed payment 95% of those bonds were insured. If you try to buy any of those bonds now you will have to pay a premium for it. Second CA economy is still booming albeit a slower pace. Unlike what you here from the media, CA economy does not depend on silicon valley. Aside from its majority political views and restrictive gun laws, CA is the best place to live IMHO.

Sure, I've been to California a number of times. I lived in Southern Oregon for 2 years, and travelled to Cal for business. I been everywhere from the northern border down to LA. Trips ranging from 1 day'ers to 2 weeks in LA right as the 2nd Rodney King trial was wrapping up. I still stand by my points. California is a land of milk and honey. They have a tremendous economy, and generate a tremendous amount of wealth. Their agriculture feeds a large percentage of the country. However, they have a moonbeam mentality that they can legislate whatever they want, being such a large economy with 33 million people. I read a joke about California solving it's energy problems by repealing the laws of physics. It's not that big of a stretch that they would try it. Yes, living in Maryland we've got plenty of problems of our own. Our Governor spent $183 million to buy his last gun control bill. We are facing the shutdown of handguns sales this fall when few gun makers will be supplying the required shell casings and the state has failed to setup the mandatory training courses. [i]Oops, guess you can't buy a handgun now!"[/i] Energy availability doesn't care what Californians think, feel or believe. Innovative technological development doesn't care what Californians think, feel or believe. The laws of Physics don't care what Californians think, feel or believe.

I have been to Kalifornia once (Bay Area). I think that it is a great place to visit but I would not want to live there. Besides the bad drivers, bad traffic, congestion, and high prices I thought they were way too tolerant of street crime. I saw people doing drugs out on the street in broad daylight, and the homeless population was huge (I just missed seeing a homeless knife fight). I hate having to be in that sort of situation without a concealed firearm. I was also surprised at how much litter and dirt there was on the sidewalks and streets. Why do the Greens there tolerate littering? There sure were a lot of hot women in the Bay Area. I like Asian/Latino/Indian women so I got an eyeful. GunLvr

My wife and I pulled into San Fran on a 87 degree day. We thought it was a little funny seeing guys in trench coats, until we saw the chalk outline of a body. We ended up driving through the worst parts of San Fran. Every time we would stop at a redlight, the natives would get up, set down their booze, and start approaching the car. Finally got to the point I just started running the redlights. I've only had this creepy a feeling in Camden New Jersey. Toward the end of the day, they had motorcycle cops stationed on almost every street corner. You just had the feeling that war was about to break loose when the sun went down.

When socialist-democrats claim to be progressive and claim states rights over individual rights, that's not progressive, that's just F*cked.

Maybe you tourists should stay out of the gheto. If you have to be in the gheto, don't be there after dark... there are parts of SF that the police do not enter without numbers at night... Do not look like a tourist... in the gheto.....ever. Do not stop to give to beggers, you do not have the time, you do not have a light. These rules apply to the bario's everywhere...

7. They thought that all you need to create a successful company is a bunch of goatee heads, a website, and an IPO, IT FAILED.

Yup, California is a progressive state alright, just like most of Europe. How proud you must be. Might as well turn in your AR15 now.

I wasn't in the Ghetto, this was at Civic Center, like 10th and Mission/Market. The Bario (Mission District) seemed safer. GunLvr

I have lived in the PRK most of my life, and was born here. Except for the jacked up government, it is a great place to live. Nowhere else in the world could I earn enough money to have a really cool car. There are plenty of hot babes in the south bay. There is great weather and no hurricanes or tornadoes. I less than 3 hours drive from my house, I can ski in the mountains, surf in the ocean, gamble in Nevada, hike in the foothills, bike along the river, raft the American, and the list goes on and on. I suspect everyone else is jealous of how great we have it here. About the bad laws, don't worry, we will export those to your state and your gun laws will be jacked up too. You can run, but you can't hide.

All I can say is HAHAHA. I lived in CA, and in MD. MD is the armpit of the country IMO. When I was there (1977) the sherrif told our neighborhood that was getting raped with B&E's at night with women sleeping in the houses: [b]"If you catch him in your house, shoot him.... If he's a nigger, shoot him outside and drag him in."[/b] What kinda great law enforcement is that? BTW, California isn't like those guys from MD are saying, use your head and read what they are writing... complete BS. Yes, the SFBA has a homeless problem, and there is some crime, but no more than any other large area, and their mayor isn't a crackhead so about the drugs on the street: STFU.

1. I see a lot of those hybrid 70-80 mpg cars out and about. They're strange, because they zoom by making almost no sound. 2. They are building powerplants faster than you can believe. They just finished a plant in LA a year ahead of schedule. 11 more on the way. The DWP is currently selling power to the rest of the state, making a good amount of profit at the same time. Even Nuclear Plants are now being considered, I thought that I would never heard that word in Kali ever again. To me, the power crisis is the best thing to happen in a long time. I love it when environmentalists are proven wrong and their faces get rubbed into it. 3. You can't register your car without insurance. No insurance = no registration = no car. 4. Earthquakes happen everywhere. Some of the biggest earthquakes recorded in the continental US occurred near the New Madrid Fault. http://www.disasterrelief.org/Disasters/980422quakes/?clkd=iwm Major earthquakes tend to hit this region once every 150-200 years. The last 9.0 earthquake to hit the midwest in 1811. Do you think y'all are safe now? That quake was felt all the way out to NYC with damage reaching nearly that far. All Kali structures have to meet extremely rigid building standards. The last time I visited Chicago, I noticed a lot of brick sky scrapers near downtown. In fact, most of the houses in Illinois seem to be made of brick. "Pancake" is the only word I could think of at the time. 5. Orange County is the place to be. My Chicago friend recently moved back to Tustin Ranch, no visible telephone/power lines, , clean air, about 10 minutes from the beach, everything is relatively new, planned communities, no slums, it's just a sweet place to live. 6. Smart guns don't exist yet and have to prove themselves reliable and safe. They are just a pie in the sky fantasy right now.

Well WHOOP-DE-DOO!!! I can somehow manage to do all of that outside of California, I can get a CPL, and STILL buy a new AR15. Can you? Didn't think so. Good God, sacrificing your rights for a cool car. You forgot to mention the reasonable tax rates, affordable housing, and low energy costs in CA, too. That extra income probably goes really far. Must be paradise.

1. Where are the [b]electric[/b] cars you folks mandated? Thank god they don't exist, since you don't have the juice to spare. AFAS the 60~80mpg cars, keep'em. Not something I'd like to drive. 6. Well, kiss your pistols goodbye because you folks just passed a law mandating Smart Guns. AFA Maryland is concerned, I agree. It's a liberal shithole. But a least Baltimore is #1 in heroin use, #1 in syphallis and Maryland is #1 in cancer. Gotta be #1 in something.

Well, DC isn't really even part of the United States, is it? It's a special place where the liberal elite go and plan our demise. Many of it's residents belong in a third world country (not to insult 3rd world countries). Yep, DC is a special place. Bleeding edge witness to having too much government.
Link Posted: 6/14/2001 12:50:34 PM EDT
I am not going to defe3nd Maryland--it is a shithole, except for the mild winters, the Piedmont farmland, the Chesepeake Bay, and the barrier islands. But if I were to move the population of Baltimore to SF and the populatoon of DC to LA your crime rate would quadruple. It's not the location, it's the people. GunLvr

Civic Center [b]is[/b] the ghetto. The homeless have been camped out in the park across the street from city hall for over 20 years.
