Maybe we could re-route them to New England (or NJ, NY and MA) where they'd feel right at home?

Illegal Immigrants are leaving OK. faster than others are moving in and a good percentage of those moving here from the West and NW are activist like myself. That's what we need in OK. in order to keep it the way it is.

I doubt most of the folks we see here are Illegal...

And OK actually passed a few laws to make
the hiring of illegals less attractive.

Have you heard about Berkley yet?
(They ARE commies!)

I didn't say anything about most folks here being illegal. I know all about the new law, that's one of my reason's for moving to OK. I even wrote and thanked Governor Henry before I left Ca. I also know that there are atleast 5 states in the proccess of initiating the bill. Ok. is about to create a domino affect.

Sorry I'm off topic.
But it's CG's fault.

Well, before you know it, I-40 will be worn out like RT66 from the caravans

we need to give I-40 a nick name and see if it stick

like "California's Driveway to Oklahoma"
or "The Cal-Okie Trail"

Both are appropriate, but I kinda like "The Cal-Okie Trail" the best. Thank goodness y'all have big hearts and open arms.

mkfarnam, you're not kidding. We'll be taking the same route as previously mentioned in June, if not before. California Boomers coming your way. Don't worry, we're not going to reck the state, we just want to be part of it and will do as Oklahomans do. My in-laws live in Mizzou, so it's still a safe distance away, LOL.

I like the Cal-Okie Trail. LOL. Evacuation Routes. LOLOLOL.

Ah, come on, I spent my college days in Berkeley, although not on their campus unless I was just walking through it, which was often. They are not all commies but some are. Looks like the 60s radicals took over the city though. Berkeley is another country, and we all used to say, "Only in Berkeley," when strange going ons happen, which is on a daily basis there. I actually miss the city, but when I lived there I wasn't much into politics. I said when living there that "Berkeley was a creative approach to chaos." I have also called it "The People's Republic of Berkeley," and as many call it, "Berserkly." All fit rather well.

Ah, I thought I made it up when I lived there. Waah!

My friends often ask me how I like Oklahoma, as if that is going to change after being here a year. I just keep saying, "I love it." I think they have the idea of a dust bowl and flat land, but even where they say it is flat it has some rolling hills or mounds, and it is pretty there. We would have been just as happy with that area of Oklahoma except for the tornados. I lived in a farm area of oats and rolling hills, few trees, and loved it there in Creston, CA. OKC area reminds me of that area, except Creston was mostly oak trees, when it had trees.
