Does San Fran have a vendetta against people not from the city like Chicago does?

The charts you lovely lads showed to us, indicated that L.A. County has lost 20K people to IL in the last year. Thats more than enough to make a dent in the western suburbs here, where I see CA plates daily. Not only that, but several other Chicago folks have also replied to you stating that they also know several ex-Californians who have come to Chicago.

Very good points Steve. Another state that is getting a lot of ex-Californians besides Illinois is its neighbor, Missouri. Southwest Missouri is taking on an unbelievable number of ex-Californians. Just look in the Missouri forum to see all the ex-Californians who now reside in places like Springfield or Joplin.

What?! 20K makes a dent in your suburbs?! That is hilarious!! LOL! Sounds like Chicago could use a little help from California! I can't imagine what you would think if 50K moved in!!

Theyre buying up small suburbs (ie Wasco, IL where I see the CA plates). ya know, far out "burbs" that used to have 500 people 5 years ago but are now up to 10K and above.

And you know what Id do if 50K Californians moved in? Id complain about them just like Arizona, Idaho and Nevada folks do.

The city of big shoulders that I grew up in was never so pissy.

It's nickname is not the "city of big shoulders" anymore danco. It's the city of tight panties. I agree with your statement that the people were not so pissy in the day. Chicagoans shouldn't worry so much about what others think. They say they don't, but then act otherwise. They seem to focus on their perceived enemies too much, instead of focusing on making their city a better place to live, rather than just a nice place to look at
