Some get very offended by it. I said oh you are from California, they will always say, Southern Cal.

While I never agree with Greatday I do agree with him here. Because he is right. I hear Southern Californians refer to themselves this way all the time.

That's because you belong to another part of California. I'm in So Cal, born and raised, and I would not want to be confused with the stereotype of people associated with the northern part of the state.

NOT someone who puts the cart before the horse.. meaning. NOT someone who sneaks across the border first.. then after having babies tries to become legal!
The law states everyone born in the united states is an american citizen and since we are all about following or enforcing the law, those your refer to as "anchor babies" are real Americans.

it is a loop-hole in the 14th amendment.. it was NOT meant for some illegal criminal to sneak over in the dead of night and start spitting-out babies!
An anchor baby may have the right to welfare and everything else free.. just because mommy-illegal KNOWS if she can sneak over before getting caught, she won't get deported after spittin-out that baby.. Once they change that, Americans won't have to take such abuse from some sneaky criminal illegal.
She is breaking OUR law to begin with.. so we reward them with the 14th. amendment.. Bull crap! Finish the Fence, secure the border.. and then we'll see how many mexican mommy-illegals get to spit-out those anchor babies!
