Sounds more like Caltrans than gays.

I have to admit that I have a love for the southern half of CA but I know my dream is not shared by everyone at least some like Northern CA as much for equally justifiable reasons. My choices in the southern half of the state, although not the cheapest places to live, reflect my bias and so these may not resonate with your taste but I think there are some very good reasons for some cities.

If Florida-speak is that a double wide in a park within sight of the water somewhere on the panhandle (aka Redneck Riviera)?

The California dream is not only a myth, but a monster. From the earliest years men came to California not to chase a dream, but to make a home for themselves and their progeny. The Gold Rush was interesting, but it was an historical aberration and was not, by and large, a noble endeavor and should not define California.

The "dream" is killing the state. The policies preferred by established families who are here because this is their home are one thing: they want work, freedom, and a decent moral life. The policies issued by utopian dreamers are another creature entirely: for them, the people of this state are mere guinea pigs in their progressivist social laboratory.

California is my home, not a dream. My people are here. My land is here. My history is here. How about you?
Here since 1987. Weather is good. Can't seem to find a better place, except, perhaps, the Islands. However, push is rapidly approaching shove, and I don't want to get caught in the middle.

You must be under the impression that everyone lives in the big cities. If I were to ask you how you live in a swamp, it would be as a result of me not knowing much about FL.

My father lived in FL, and in his last days he was pining to return to CA.

Florida population density - 353 per square mile
California population density - 242 per square mile

Sounds like your state is more crowded than ours Mr. Kurtz.
