Are you saying Victor Davis Hanson is scared and ignorant? Are you saying a powerful earthquake can't really mess up your day? I was born here, live on a fault line, and know whereof I speak. I would not recommend moving here for any reason to anyone. The schools are horrible, the state is broke, over-regulated, crawling with hostile illegal aliens, and is the very definition of a man-caused disaster.

Guess it depends where you live how high taxes are.

To each his own.

Personally, I don’t think happiness CAN be found in a big city. I live outside of Atlanta. A good 35 miles east. The closer you get, the sadder and more desperate it gets, until you get to the center where the sports arenas and attractions are.

But every major city is run by hypocrats that mismanage with a vengeance. Every decade after every decade the dims promise the poor (and everyone else) that the hypocrat party is the answer to their poverty, yet the Detroits and LAs and Atlantas are more run down, poorer and more crippled with abandoned neighborhoods and businesses and crime than the decade before.

I think the answer is a more moderately sized metro area with more conservatives and sane people as you put it. You might not want to go to those states but think hard about all the “sane people” that are leaving your target states for these very areas.

If you’re truly looking to be around sane people, you’re heading against the flow of traffic!

Once again, GOOD LUCK! I was going to say you need it but the truth is WE ALL DO!

Things like that remind me to be glad I’m not married. Good luck in whatever commie hole she takes you to, man.

Different strokes for different folks I guess. I lived in a very rural setting for a full 10 years, and I can honestly say that it’s not for me. I never once, for even a moment felt like I fit in. Which at the time, prompted me to tell her that we had to move a real city, because I was dying inside. She listened, we moved, and I absolutely owe her the same respect in return.
