Millions live in other states just fine, some to a very fine standard of living.
More people live in other States than live in CA.

Lived in Des Moines, Iowa for a couple years. In the winter you bundle up and go on about your business like everyone else. Took a couple extra minutes to get ready in the morning. Its really not that hard to get used to... well, for anyone with a spine that is.

For some, health issues may play a role in how they are able to acclimate/get used to the climate in the area in a area they moved to......for some, it may not work out.

What does the fact you're not white have to do with anything?

Jeez, I'm black and lived in boonies MN. The amount of ignorance is pathetic and people act like it's a whole new world when they find I, as a black man, *gasp* don't play basketball. They thought my wave brush was a horse brush, I had to explain picks, and don't get me started on their whole issue with me trying to get waves in and wearing a durag on hat day to protect them .

My white friends were dumbfounded by how I was treated, saying they couldn't believe how racist people could be in high school. I'm telling them 'since you're all white and the school is primarily white and the city is primarily white, I'm not remotely surprised you weren't exposed to a lot of racism.' Once they hung around me enough, it became clear there was an issue nobody wanted to address.

So to the person you're answering, Perma Bear, being white can have a LOT to do with where you'd choose to move. And this is why I'll never willingly move to that city. Hell, I got out one month after graduating high school and never looked back.

I think you're a racist. On many posts you've made fun of people in the south, people in the midwest, people of color, poor people, rich people.
I'm Chinese and live in the south now. My friends are black, some white rednecks, some white middle class, and a few asians.
Not sure what your problem is. Maybe it would be good for your mom to boot you from the basement and let you see the world. She's not doing you any favors based on all the stereotypical post you make.

Well we live in a capitalist society, and California has and has always had a high demand for people wanting to live within the state. High cost of living with a high demand for jobs which will help cover it will create a large disparity between the haves and have nots.
