Have only visited the more priviledged areas of Southern California ie Orange County, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, L.A, etc. If you choose to limit your visit to the rich area of ANY region, you're going to get snobs & fakes. COMMON SENSE people.
~Newsflash: L.A and San Francisco do NOT represent the whole state and are not the only worthwhile places here.
~We don't all drive Ferraris and freeload off our rich parents. We have POOR people too. You know Hollister? That is just some poor shitty town nowhere near a beach....all you out of staters wearing that stuff thinking it makes you a surfer and cool? It doesnt. It's just a brand that capitalizes off your ignorance.
California is NOT a gigantic beach. We dont all live near the beach . We don't all surf...hell I can't even swim.
All that said, we ARE a beautiful diverse state. And I'd rather be broke here than wealthy anywhere else.
Californian: Well have you been to any part of California besides L.A or San Francisco?
1. The weather is perfect.
2. There's always something to do.
3. There aren't any freakin small town hicks to bother you.
4. When you go outside, you can breathe, without inhaling tree sap.
5. The ocean is magical in its beauty, and its warm.
6. Hollywood. (must I say more?)
7. Disneyland to entertain little kids.
8. The only state besides Hawaii where if you say "I live in (insert state here)" people actually think its cool.
9. We don't have any freakin volcanoes to be scared of.
10. No life threatening shit in mosquitos.
11. You can get a tan on the beach, and ski on the same day.
12. It has the coolest cities in America. Admit it, Los Angeles pretty much kicks any other city's ass.
13. We can say "cali" and sound cool. You can't nickname any other state and pull it off.
14. Everything is pretty close together. So you don't have to travel for like 4 hours to get to a grocery store.
15. California is the Most Pimpin' State in America. Period.
Person: Aww, I live in Kansas.
Me: Jeez, I'm sorry.
Person: Your sooo lucky. California is the pimpinest state ever.
Me: Well DUH!!!!
California does suck. I live here, so I can say it. The weather is horrible (Contrary to many beliefs). Its either 120 degrees out, below freezing, raining 5 inches a day, or muggy. Where I live, we get 70 inches of rain a year. And they say it rains to much in Seattle? (Ahem, 30 inches a year)
Most of the people here will give you the finger rather than help you, most of them drive like bats of hell, and if you dare look at them, don’t expect anything of a cold stair. We recalled a Governor, citing he was doing a bad job, then replace him with a Nazi who can speak and is making things worst!
We have horrible traffic, smog everywhere, lots of retarded surf bums, money mongering asses, and many people travel here in the summer, and piss and moan on how it wasn’t what they though. Well duh! A state with 34 million people crammed into it can only be disastrous.
And when I say that California sucks, I get glares, and boos, but I don’t give a fuck. Fuck them all, what do they know? If they cant see what a fucked up place we live in, they can let the San Andreas Fault open up and suck them in.
And speaking of earthquakes, we get hit all the time. It is so annoying, 4.8 here, a 5.5 there, then, bam! the big one 9.8, well, as soon as I turn 18, I am not sticking around to see it. I will be safely in Washington State, laughing and celebrating at the sight of California sinking into the pacific.
Fuck California And All It Stands For. And In 4 Years, While The Californians Will Be Getting Lung Cancer From Smog, Killed By Earthquakes, Or Criminals, I Will Be Out Of California, So Fuck You All.
Fuck It All, Fuck It All, Fuck It All.
The social structure is extrmely corrupt despite their belief of progress and openess: the government is corrupt, schools are corrupt and the police are corrupt. Californians like to think they are progressive and compassionate, but California is not compassionate by any means. The homeless situation is the worst of any state and even being homeless is almost a crime. If you are a Republican or Conservative and appreciate family values, you will be outcast from much of the population, except in Orange County. You can thank the extreme liberalism coming from Hollywood and the Bay Area for that. They think they are progressive, when in fact all they like to do is put in their ignorant two cents. They talk the talk, but can’t walk the walk. You cannot find a more hypocritical culture anywhere.
Californians think their state is the most beautiful in the world (and there is plenty of serenity in the state) and that no other place of natural beauty exists on this planet, and that they are crime-free. What hogwash. Yes, California is very beautiful state with deserts, mountains, beaches and forests. But between all that, California leads the nation in almost everything bad: violent crime, illegal immigration, a growing prison population, drugs, air pollution and an out of control cost of living. So much so that many of its residents are starting to jump ship and move to other states.
