Well, God bless them and good luck, but I've written California off as too far gone and too infested with demented, dictatorial leftists to be a viable member of the Union at this point.

I hope you change your mind about "writing California off," Viking. The very fact that these kids have started this club -- in ultra-liberal Northern California, yet -- is proof that Calfornia is NOT "too far gone."

I am a native Californian, raised by native Californians who were raised by native Californians, clear back to the mid 1800s. The rest of the U.S. has are completely unaware how conservative (not to mention rural) most of California is -- check out one of those voting maps, and you'll see that this state votes overwhelmingly conservative EXCEPT for most of the heavily populated and "artsy" coastal counties, home to cities such as San Francisco and Los Angeles. I daresay that the vast majority of screaming liberal voters are people who haven't even lived in this state for more than 25 years.

And for folks who say, "Well, you re-elected Gray Davis," I counter: Nope, I absolutely reject that notion. Davis won by voter fraud, and was recalled because we Californians knew he didnt' belong there.

Reagan didn't come from California for nothing.

During my "tour of duty" in science in academia, I've only met two professors
who admit to shooting rifles.
One was a Texan.
The other was a Central (rural) Californian...I was shocked to hear him
openly admit that he and his family hunted feral pigs with .30-06s.
