That all of California is like the movie 'Fast Times at Ridgemont High'. We're not all just stoner surfers

Not everyone is permanently tanned and the beach is not outside my front door. Oh yeah....not everyone from California carries a gun. Had an agent at the Canadian border say, "You're from California, you own guns, and you don't have one with you??". He was in disbelief and proceeded to search our car.

Not everyone from California is far to the left in their political and lifestyle beliefs.

All of Southern Cal isn't L.A./O.C. There is another world outside the coastal strip.

Just because one is from California doesn't mean they're a seed and sprout eating vegetarian. I'll eat parts of an animal that would rival what Andrew Zimmern eats.

Wow, I've never heard that one before. Doesn't California have some of the most restrictive gun laws in the country?

I don't really know about the gun laws. The guns came with new and improved hubby.
