California Freepers (Vanity)
self | 3-14-2012 | self

Posted on 03/14/2012 3:45:18 PM PDT by Melas

Sigh...to make a long story short, my wife has decided that she's getting out of Texas, with or without me.

She's listed California, Oregon and Washington as possible places where she'd like to relocate. Well, I'm allergic to the cold, so that leaves California.

Any input on possible locations in California where she can "Escape the redneck mentality" and I can still live around semi-sane individuals?

Not in California! This is the LAST state anyone should move too. I can’t wait to get out of this state and I’ve lived here all my 66 years.

Warning, we’re putting a fence around California in a couple of months to keep everyone already in there inside. There’ll be no coming back!

Your wife would love it here in Hollywood. Black trannies roam the streets at night while pissed-off dikes’ berate you for being a right-wing conservative. Plus no one speaks English except for black and white people! It’s heaven for your wife...

I always say, if I ever have to go back to the States, I’m going to Texas. Scratch Cali right off that list and stay put. You can call her every now and then.

Thank you for the first and (so far) only constructive comment. I’ll check those out.

All I can say about some of the other comments is that marriage obviously means little to some. I’m not thrilled about this, but I love my wife a helluva lot more than I love Texas.

Libs are everywhere. I thought when I moved to Kentucky, I’d be safe and sure enough, they were down there....demanding government health care and free condoms.

Don’t move to Los Angeles County (other than Beverly Hills if you can afford it). It’s run by and for Democrats. It’s a sewer. The freeway traffic is horrible, even on weekends.

I live in the next county north (Ventura) and it’s a lot better. More conservative, more Republican, cleaner. San Diego not bad either.

Placer County is conservative. If it comes to that, move up north, it’s my old stomping grounds, but Cali as a whole is nuts, and I highly recommend not considering it as an option.

“Any help at all would be appreciated.”

Move to Kalifornica? Huh?

You must be referring to perhaps ‘mental’ health help? Sarc..

Check out San Diego. If you have kids, the San Diego Unified School District sucks. There are some good public schools in North San Diego County.

Sorry she feels as though she's too good to associate with the rabble, I'm sure she will find plenty of sophisticated, elite folks in California--that's why their going broke there, they're so sophisticated that they can't figure out how to balance their budget.

The LEFT COAST isn't just called the "left coast" because it's on the left side of the map.

I'm trying to feel a little sympathy for you, but the problem with moving simply because you don't like the people around you is that wherever you go, you take yourself with you.

Thank you. Yeah, 90210 is probably waaay out of my price range. I’ve eliminated Marin County as well, as it seems very much anti-mountain biking.

I'd write off the following areas as being too likely to result in you hitting the long peddle in your car and slamming into someone: Bay area, Sacramento area, anything in the City of San Diego, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Long Beach, etc. Also the San Fernando Valley. I'd also avoid the cities of Riverside and San Bernardino.

Myself, I've lived in the San Gabriel Valley for a great part of my life - we're slowly being boxed in by the liberals who've taken Pasadena and Claremont, but the cities inbetween are for the most part reasonable. Most of the Central Valley upstate is ok, just in a horrible economic depression.

Orange County is so-so - costs are enough that I'd consider moving just about anywhere else first. And I hate to say it, but same goes for most of North County of San Diego.

Alas, if she's wanting to avoid ‘redneck mentality’ it does cut down options. Valencia/Saugus/Canyon Country are borderline. The sane areas of Riverside County are redneck central, same with quite a bit of the central valley. Victorville region would probably also be borderline.

All in all, based on your comments, your best bets are: eastern San Gabriel Valley, Orange County, Canyon Country, Hidden Hills/Reseda.

Dude, gay men walk around naked and copulate in public in San Fransicko.

The rest of Kalipornia is not much better.

BTW, I hope you don’t need a job if you go there.

Forget Californicka.

I moved from Illinois to Colorado over two years ago and love it.

Low taxes. Yeah, Denver and Boulder counties are lib lands but Weld County is wide open and conservative. South of Denver is Colorado Springs, USAF Acadamy etc.

Weather is great, snow mostly in the mountains.
