I've never been there. I'm turned off about LA mainly because I can't stand the egos and political views of the actors. I also understand that it's a sanctuary city for illegal immigrants.

It's not as "loved" as say, NYC, San Francisco or Chicago.

Who said I lived Los Angeles? "Here", as in CITY DATA FORUM. Please work on your English comprehension.

You have the nerve to call me a booster and you have only one post? You're probably one of the trolls who rigged that Los Angels poll.

I think for the most part the representation on City-Data is close to that in real life.

You have to be kidding me! The regulars who post on this site are not representative of America generally. Most of us have a particular interest in cities, planning, development, or something similar that most average Americans do not. Most people on blogs/forums like these are not the average American and stats show that too.

You seriously think 58% of American enjoy talking about cities as much as people on here do: What brought you to this web site?

There is another thread from a while back that has stats for different sites and it showed the differences of typical City-Data users compared to the average American; generally they tend to be whiter, more educated, etc...

I should have clarified. I meant that because a state has a greater population that they will be better represented here. People's views as well because people from the same regions tend to have a mindset similar to most others regardless of race.

Yes, the Ozarks are heavily flooded with ex-Californians. Trust me.
Yep, I can attest to that, and I'm a native San Diegan and was able to locate the Ozarks on the map,lol, which landed our family outside of Springfield, MO. We loved it there and really loved the 4 seasons and actually having some weather!
I like LA to visit but we couldn't wait to get out of California, not because of the high housing prices, but more because of the huge population of illegals, which in my opinion, makes LA so undesirable.
Californians are leaving by the boat loads, alot of my family and friends have made the move out of state. I didn't want to relocate anywhere near the west coast, I wanted something totally different! Now we are in Georgia after spending a few years in Missouri. We've seen so much of the country that we only read about in history books. It's super cool! We are now getting ready for another move, to Virginia! No desire at all to go back to CA, but I do miss so cal mexican food, taco shops!
