Ah yes, the California dream where midwestern dreams go to die working in a Denny's and whoring yourself out in the hopes of getting into Hollywood. Not just nidwestern, if you weren't born there forget about making it there, that's how un-American the California dream is, it's not for anyone but Californians... the lucky few of them with money... and maybe if you have fat stacks in your bank account you can blow it all in California to say you lived there.

What’s the Idaho Dream? The same as Alabama’s, just add a baked potato.
Sure it is. That is why we (sadly) have the fastest population growth in the nation. Oh-and no "homeless" living in tents on the sidewalk.

I’ll take the crappier weather any day.
I lived on San Francisco, and I have lived in Lexington. Quality of life is much better in Kentucky. California continues to become worse. Too high cost of living and taxes, too many ILLEGALS, and too many self centered idiots.

California was a red state, then the status quo wanted to hold onto power and stifle the innovative class who weren't part of the club. Drove them away to states like Texas where they're trying to emulate the people who drove them out of California.

I've seen this happen in almost every state I have lived in. Liberal/Progressives leave high cost, high tax states then try to re-create the absolute MADNESS they left in their new state. It is ruining many once great states.

Probably because they're communists.

This is what Gavin Newsom said in an anti-middle America tirade.

I have been in both Kentucky and California. Kentucky had great roads compared to California. Kentucky doesn't have massive amounts of pollution like much of the cities in California do. Kentucky has much lower taxes and better infrastructure.

Both states sadly have crime issues, but in a city like Louisville and Lexington it is much easier to move to a nice area then it is for people to move to a nice area in LA or the Bay Area.

“There's no Alabama dream, no Kentucky dream,” Newsom told the party faithful. “There's only the California dream, attainable and aspirational"

I am not surprised the Democratic party has gotten extremely arrogant and snobby. What I find interesting is how a couple working at manufacturing facility in Kentucky or Alabama can easily afford a 4 bedroom house and yet people in California who make $100,000 have to share apartments or settle for a run-down 1 bedroom in LA or the Bay Area.

What, I find interesting is Lexington has a higher per-capita income than LA.

The mortgage payment on a 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom house in Lexington is about $1,000 dollars less a month than a 1 bedroom in LA.

https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/8...77562867_zpid/

$1,231 estimated mortgage on 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom home in Lexington

https://www.zumper.com/blog/2019/06/...ort-june-2019/

Median rent in LA: $2,250
All your comparisons serve as proof of what Newsom said. There is no Kentucky "dream". People don't want to live there like they do in California. Demand is what makes CA so expensive. California has a mystique and an allure that no other state except possibly Alaska can offer. It's just reality.

California doesn't have an allure, maybe for computer programmers that see big tech companies as prestige to pad their resumes with, then get out to a cheaper part of the country once they've accomplished it. Everyone else knows what kind of ****hole California is, except the most drugged out dregs of society.

There are cool places in CA, but they are not in the cities. However, he has probably never been to KY, as there are some very nice scenic areas in the eastern part of the state.
There`s also mountains with the tops blown off them.
