Thread: What happened to the "California Dream"?

    Default What happened to the "California Dream"?

    I moved to Los Angeles for school a few months ago and there are many people here who complain about the costs of living, rent in particular. People working 2-3 jobs isn't uncommon. People leaving (usually when they are beginning to have a family) to another state isn't uncommon. What happened to the Golden State?

    The great immigration resulted in the great emigration. Now other states get to suffer with all of the bleeding heart leftists, who coincidentally are the first to flee the messes they create.

    Maybe we should not print this much money?
    The essential English leadership secret does not depend on particular intelligence. Rather, it depends on a remarkably stupid thick-headedness. The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous.

    Please tell me why I should worship the state (who apparently is the only party that can possess guns without question).

    The state's only purpose is to kill and control. Why do you worship it? - Sola_Fide

    California is ranked dead last among 50 states for occupational freedom, labor freedom, and victimless crime prosecution. It consistently ranks as the 49th . least free state overall.

    You are right, it was the other way around.

    Dreamers.
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    Does the presence of both Hollywood and more recently Silicon Valley greatly distort the market?
