Texas has a better economy, but that's it. That's the only reason people are going there. We have the rich moving here so better for us. anyways I could argue this all night, your economy is the only thing better, simple as that.

Obviously a large majority of people have voted in the same way

Really now Bradley? You live in cesspool half of the state. In LA where the lowest educated metropolitan area in the country, that 3rd world POS wasteland. And youre talking about the rich moving there, newsflash Bradley California has lost more millionaires, billionaires than gained. NY, TX, FL all gained more.
SF is great city, no complaint there. The wealthy, healthy, smart live in the better half of state, the true city in west. LOL living in a dump like LA one can only dream of true cities SF, NY, PHILA, BOS, CHI. I can see where you get your jealousy from now. LOL at you thinking your dumpy economy will recover, I heard your city has more people living in car now? L.A to give people living in cars on Venice-area streets 'safe overnight parking' | L.A. NOW | Los Angeles Times

LOL you do know there is more to Southern California then LA right? obviously you don't. and I don't live in LA. I live in a city much cleaner, safer, and laid back then LA. I have nothing to be jealous about. but thanks for the laugh

Anyway LA is a great place to visit, but I prefer San Diego because it's cleaner, freindlier, safer, and a lot less congested then LA

I'm sure all you calling it a dump have probably never spent any time in Southern California. It's obvious by your ignorant comment thinking LA is the only city in Southern California

I love and have lived in LA but agree, I prefer to visit than the thought of living there again. Would much rather live up or down the coast outside of the city.

That simply is not true. LA does rank fairly low but many other metro areas are lower, including Houston (barely) and San Antonio. If you want to find 3rd world conditions you'd find a lot more of it in Texas than you would CA.

I know SD is another city in Socal Bradley, Ive spent time in socal. SD is nice city ill give you that but it is no where size of LA which dominates socal population. Youre jealousy for SF is showing again, maybe if it socal was rich and educated you wouldnt have inferiority complex, right?

Our economy is fine and it's the 11th largest in the world and will enter the top 10 just next year.
Reading your posts is a bit of bore. I see you and many others like LA lots of people do, but I never understood why like 3rd world wastelands.

San Antonio is dump. It does, Houston is comparable to LA but slightly higher. 3rd world living conditions really? You want to generalize all of Texas 3rd world, I dont live in texas but have been to Houston and other cities, they have ghettos yes, but 3rd world looking like LA no.

CA has an amzing variety of landscapes from beautiful beaches, hills, lakes, mountains, to deserts and giant redwoods. CA also has the best variety of weather of anywhere in the country. No one can deny that, though i bet people will try. If all you can think up is lame insults about LA being a "dump" and the economy then you obviously need to get a life. It is clear to me that you have no credibility as you have never been to Southern california and are only listening to whatever Fox News spews.

I never said anything about SF in my post so how is that showing jelousy? You have clearly lost your mind. I'm the one with the inferiority complex? Metro Matt stops at nothing to speaed blantant lies about CA and the same can be said about your previous posts. Especially your post about LA "being 3rd world", if that's not an inferiority complex then I don't know what is.
