    I'm a thrill seeker too. I would like to be dropped off in the middle of California, so that I can rush from out of there. Being in California, that It is like going into a haunted house alone. Or going into the deepest darkest part of the jungle in Africa.

    Just like your knowledge of U.S. geography, it looks like.

    They should build a border wall with Mexico. But California practically puts a welcome mat on their Southern border.

    Well, putting aside for a moment that Gavin Newsom said it, which makes it automatically suspect,
    it could be that California has the most liberal generous welfare policies in the nation while Texas does not.

    If you were homeless and you knew you could score twice as much money in California as in Texas, where would you go?

    Except there is a problem with that. Cali is much much more expensive to live in.

    If you are homeless how much money do need to live on? Car repairs? Home mortgage? College loans?
    Not likely.

    I don't know. The better question is, why should California be a welfare state for the rest of the country as well as for Mexico, etc.? They can't sustain it. They're going to go bankrupt. You whine about Trump wanting the Fed to reduce rates yet you have NO PROBLEM with Democrats taking California down the toilet. And that's because your loyalty isn't to poor and average Americans, but to the Democratic Party.

    I see that it still hasn't occurred to you that fascism doesn't work as well as free-market capitalism. So why are you still a fascist?
