The only state where the Terminator can be the governor.
California is building as many high fences as possible to keep all the Mexicans from illegally crossing. They would sacrifice their children's lives to keep illegal Mexicans from crossing.

California is to the United States as Italy is to Europe.

Both have the following features:
- completely dysfunctional government
- too much debt
- declining economy
- endemic corruption
- beautiful landscapes and coastlines
- agriculture: olives, wine, citrus fruits, cheese, tomatoes
- natives feel it is important to look good
- natives drive like maniacs in heavy traffic but somehow avoid running into each other
- too many illegal immigrants
- rich people with mansions on a cliff overlooking the ocean
- earthquakes and volcanoes
- nice weather, hot in the summer, rain in the winter
- skiing in the mountains
- swarmed by tourists in the summer
- foodies
- Western movies are filmed there
Video: good looking guy or gal with a tan, wearing sunglasses and a very nice shirt, talking on cell phone while driving, says "Ciao", hangs up, changes lanes abruptly. They drive through a run down suburb populated mostly by olive-skinned people with black hair. They drive towards the mountains. The sunlight is dazzling. The landscape is hilly and dry. The car is a BMW 3-series.

Observer A: that must be Italy
Observer B: no, the buildings are new. It is California.

1. Bad decision making, to the point of financial collapse
2. To declare bankruptcy
3. A complete misuse of resources, even while having more resources than others
Jerry, despite making $1 million a year, was so California, that he had to sell himself on the streets to make ends meet.

One of the most expensive places to live with out of control spending, development, and crime. It's a myth that you can drive from surf to snow in So-Cal, as it takes 45 minutes just access the freeway. Oh and forget about being neighborly or lending a helping hand on the highway. There are too many over stressed and whacked out soccer moms waiting to mow you down while trying get back to their stucco Monopoly Mansions.

And what's with all the palm trees? I've lived here all my life and to this day I can't figure out why someone decided to import these hideous things that don't even grow here (except the date palms in Coachella.

So, if you want to live in a state with no seasons, Santa Ana winds, wild fires, suffocating taxes, draconian gun laws, spineless law enforcement (Paris Hilton) "special emission standards", more people than Canada and where a 1100 sq ft 2bd house in an "ok" neighborhood will run about $400,000, then by all means, move here.

If you do, I've gotta bridge to sell you so I can make enough money to get the hell out.

Oh yeah, forget the beaches (save for central coast), they are either over run by asshat surfers and Bros who think they have exclusive rights to the ocean or, they've been bought up by rich celebs. So, maybe, if you are lucky, you can sit on the 91, 405, 55 for about 2-3 hours, pay 15 to park in space that took 30 minutes to find, then trudge a 1/4 mile to sit on the hot sand with 500,000 other people that had the same great idea on Saturday.

California sucks.
California Native: "Ive had it, another tax, another school bond, higher gas, I'm cashing in my $300,000 in equity. I'll buy a bigger house out of state and work half as much. See ya suckers!"

A state that gets a lot of anger from everyone.

No, it's not entirely full of liberals. And not all of us are proud about our governor.

The smog is horrible, driving through LA takes two hours, Hollywood is full of homeless people, the beaches are freezing, and no, not everyone is like the OC.

Those of us who live in Southern California in the suburban areas are privledged, leaving a lot of people very ignorant about the rest of the world. A lot of pathetic child actors, such as in La Canada, home to Hannah Montana, those kids from Everyone Loves Raymond, and The Sixth Sense kid.

There is a lot of immigration, making it a very diverse place to live. And there are homosexuals, too. Big suprise. In fact, CA is incredibly diverse, which leads, in some cases, to less intolerance.

We also have TONS of forest fires, due to the lack of rain. In So Cal, there is rarely rain, and never snow. And the sky is brown over LA from smog.

The OC isn't life. We don't all party in Mexico with our friends and boyfriends. I did, but I was building a home for the poor.

California has a couple of things going for it, though.
We have In 'N Out. It's amazing.
We do have beaches, and mountains, deserts and forests. That's kind of cool.
Person 1: I want to go to California and make my way as an actress!
Person 2: I want to be like those hot kids in the OC!
Person 3: I want to swim all day, and meet movie stars!
CA Person: Yah. I can't breathe because of the ashes and smog.
