So you're admitting you're a disgrace to this country?

The only disgrace to this country I can think of is Donald Trump and his entire family (sans Barron, as he's just a kid still).

I no longer live in California but it is my home state and there is no reason to be ashamed of the state that contributes and pays more taxes to the economy of this country than any other state. California is home to the 5th largest economy in the WORLD. That's nothing to sneeze at.

I just can't take the crowds or the weather lol

I don't see why not to admit it. If it's a disgrace, then it's a disgrace. Is there a problem with owning up to accusations, too?

Cali should feel special as Trump's opinion of pretty much everything has no merit. Completely clueless, constantly critical. If he were positive about Cali, I'd start to wonder. He's a fool. It's a compliment, Cali. Take his criticism as a compliment.

Having to distribute poop maps tells us there is something definitely wrong with California.

This is my perspective when reading your posts, BucFan.

It doesn't sound like he loves America to me, sounds like he hates it, actually.
By his own words, maybe he should love it or leave.
They are apart of America, whether he likes it or not, he is only interested in insulting them and trying to bring them down.
Pathetic, for a President to do that to his own cities and states.


He certainly isn't trying to America great again.
Exactly right.

He is the least 'Presidential' President to hold Office in modern times. I have never, ever heard of a president insulting entire regions of the country they are supposed to be leading. He's childish, vindictive, and behaves like a schoolyard bully.

I'm still angry over the things he said about California during their last fire season. He said them even as people were losing their lives, their pets, their homes, and their entire livelihoods!

He's despicable and completely untrustworthy. That he is within even striking distance of this country's nuclear codes SHOULD scare the hell out of any rational person.

As for California, I've already covered my feelings in my other post.

The homeless problem is deeply tied into our drug problem, and both are even more deeply tied to into our relative lack of access to mental health services compared to the rest of the civilized world.

In a country where no one gives a crap about their neighbor as long as they have theirs, is it any wonder?

We should look to places with higher indices for Happiness and Quality of Life. 'Murica isn't the end all be all and #45's policies are making it that much worse for our most vulnerable citizens.

Are they the same cities we always kinda called dumps 20ish years ago?
