There were also rumors that people were leaving California because some crazy Roman LARP’s from the Mojave are threatening to burn down California so the leader is about to send the National Guard over to resolve the issue.

  • That’s an easy answer, democrats. Democrats are driving California’s mass exodus. These dummies actually believe they understand business and that every other state should emulate their failures. Not saying you should vote Republican, but at this point, what does California have to lose? At the very least, stop letting these imbeciles pass stupid crap into law, that they know nothing about.

  • California's Democratic legislators are idiotic bureaucrats elected by morons who are fine with being abused for the nice weather. I live in an upscale CA community and this is the thinking of fairly intelligent people with no thought of the train wreck down the road. This will not change and California will become the country's first 3rd-world state with a very wealthy upper class and a huge lower class doing their grunt work.

  • Socialists can only garner money by taking it off those who have the ability to make it. Socialists, who de facto are anti-capitalist, are political and economic parasites, and businesses and ordinary people in California have had enough of being bled dry by their taxes. They are also fed up with perverted social policies that are threatening the small matter of quality of life. That’s the Democrat way, though, plain for all to see and enough Americans don’t mind that they voted them into power to cause more destabilisation.
