I’ve got about a decade to retirement, and California passed me up about 10 years ago. The politics I can handle.

Even liberal is ok if it means feeedom of speech, freedom to pursue whatever religion, etc.

What I can’t handle is the stupidity of socialists combined with intolerance. Liberals don’t let the homeless population implode in less than a decade nor do they pass totalitarian laws such as requiring internet postings to be cleared by a government office of fact checking such as the law written by dangerous imbecile state Senator Richard Pan and passed by the state assembly and Senate.

I really can’t decide which is worse...State Senator Pan, or the mouth breathers that keep voting for him.

Either way, I already know I’m done with CA once I retire here. I was born in the SGV, lived in City of LA most of my adult life, and live in the South Bay, a place that should be one of the best places to live in the world. I have the wife (she was born and has lived her all her life too) fully on board for a move to Las Vegas. I’ve got her considering OKC and Texas. I’ve gotta sell her fully on those as I’m not sure Nevada is gonna hold the line. Theyre where CA was in the 80’s politically so we’ll see. I did get her to vote for a Republican in John Cox for the first time in her life...she hated Newsome. But she hates President Trump also.

How could it be full. They don't even have 2 million people yet.

So I guess this means Kentucky and Washington state are full also...more people in a smaller area in those places.

Arizona is not full yet. They keep building more houses. So I guess that it is OK to move to Arizona.

Not that I am going anywhere. We love living on the coast in California. I have been here my entire life. May as well stay.

Still surprised no mention of the suburbs of Salt Lake City.

Actually, I know what it is... the thought of snow, and Mormans. That's good, because it keeps people away. But 6 months of the year it's warmer than LA; 6 months it's colder, but at least you get some snow.

Rain averages 2 days a week, all year. Some weeks 1 day, some weeks 3, and some weeks none. Dry air, but not Vegas dry. Warm summers but not over 100. And 4 seasons, they way it should be. And some natural rivers/streams that come from the melting snow on the Rockies most of the year (i.e., "Little Cottonwood Creek").

Homeless? Almost none by LA standards. In the suburbs, if a tent is found, they rush to bring food and supplies, and they create a map so everyone can help. There are 900 shelter beds in the state, less than the 1000 on the street tonight in Santa Monica. When dog poop is found on a sidewalk, they make a map so you can avoid it. Inner city SLC is not as nice of course, but why would you go there anyway.

Apartments are about 1/3 of LA: $1200 for a 2/2. And parking is not mentioned much, because they are the big open lots. Homes are about half of LA. Food is only about 20% less; not sure why that is.

The Morman church culture is not prevalent in the city or county; it's mostly in the next county over (Utah county). This is so even though the beautiful headquarters of the Morman church is in downtown SLC.

Anyway, after 26 years in the LA area, I saw its peak and greatness (1994) and the spriral and now the crashing of the area. Even with full effort, it would take a decade to fix LA. But there is no effort, and there is no sight of it starting.

Probably not. If he were, he would probably have spelled Mormon correctly. Just for your information, a LOT of non-Mormon people find Salt Lake City a great place to live, for the very reasons that ut new mentioned. To assume that only a Mormon could find a lot to like about Salt Lake City shows a real lack of knowledge about the area.

Years ago, I was on business in L.A. I was actually taking a week-long class. When we broke for lunch, the guy sitting next to me asked if I'd like to go grab a bite to eat with him. I said I would. We introduced ourselves, and he asked me where I was from. I said, "Salt Lake City." "Oh," he answered, "the armpit of the earth, huh?" Without even stopping to think, I said, "So you've never been there?" He looked surprised and said, "Well, no. But how did you know that?" "I know," I answered, "because nobody who'd been there would ever describe it that way."
