Kentucky is also a beautiful state. I need to get back to the region and spend some time exploring-Eastern KY an TN, western NC and Virginia are really nice. Same with much of Arkansas (though I miss longer-distance views-it's almost too treed) and even Southern Missouri.

California? While it certainly has some beautiful areas (Mt. Shasta and the Sierra Nevadas in particular, but much of northern CA has it's good points)....sadly most of the rest of the state is desert and scrubbrush. Sure you have a lot of oceanfront that has some pretty spots-but most is overcrowded and frankly somewhat run down and rather dingy. The traffic is horrid, the roads are falling apart and of course the homeless have taken over many of the major cities. Was shocked to see how bad LA and Longbeach had gotten (though LB wasn't nearly as pathetic as downtown LA-skid row is only a few blocks from the Convention Center).

Given what's become of much of that once-beautiful state, he's got nerve.

Thereís an Alabama and Kentucky Dream. What the hell is he talking about?

Itís called a double wide, a used pickup, a job at Walmart, and and enough food stamps to last the whole month.

Different states have different lifestyles that appeal to different people.

There are many appealing things about California. Their dip **** governor isn't one of them.

The whole state has 130,000 homeless. California has 40 million people. The homeless population is infinitesimal. Not even worth discussing.

Your state has 2000 homeless people in a population of 1.7 million, and a bunch of those 1.7 million non homeless people are dirt poor and barely hanging on financially. You really shouldn’t brag too much. 236,000 people in your state report incomes below the poverty line.

What’s the Idaho Dream? The same as Alabama’s, just add a baked potato.

I see you continue to stereotype people.

You probably don't realize that's the basis for most racism.

But I guess it's ok when you do it.

Nah, having lived in Idaho...nobody cares about baked potato's.

The dream is a woodshed full of buckskin Larch and a elk in the freezer in the fall.

For winter, it is miles of snowmobile trails for most and miles of cross-country trails for some in winter.

For spring, trout fishing in lakes and streams and floating the rivers in a rubber raft.

Summer is exploring the high country trails by foot or horse.

That is the Idaho dream.
