OK then, fair enough

Huge numbers of Californians migrating to Texas? You mean California isn't the be-all, end-all paradise they're always claiming? What wonderful news!

Incidentally, I believe they have a problem up in Seattle with this apparent infestation of Californians. Take care, Texans: they've got you in their sights!

that's because it is the greatest. Why do 4 million people live in L.A. if it's a dump and why is L.A. the 2nd most visited city in america huh? I think you got it all wrong people love L.A. not hate it.

look at these charts L.A. is the secound largest city in america
List of United States cities by population - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


here a chart showing L.A. is most visited
Forbes:Americas 30 most visited cities!


don't tell me no one likes L.A.

It was only a matter of time. Arizona, Utah, and Idaho have been invaded in the past five years for all the reasons mentioned in this thread. I imagine high cost and congestion are driving people away from the cesspool of SoCal, and it's only going to get worse as the population continues to swell.
