When the Californians turn Texas into California, then where will they move to? The Californians who have written letters to the editor in the paper want to "turn Texas into California, because this is how we did it in California before I left it to move here because I can't live there any more."

I would take their invasion of Texas as a compliment. While TX was not their first choice (they did Oregon, Nevada, Arizona, and Colorado first), they are doing TX before Kansas, Indiana, and Ohio

Don't forget Idaho, I know a lot of Californians that have moved there. Buck Knives was a 2 generation San Diego family owned company moved there over a year ago. Most of their workers went with them

I am from California and I love CA. I am looking for a new place to move to raise my kids and start our careers. I can't afford to live in CA and buy a house. Does that make me a bad person? No!

CA ppl are EVERYWHERE! NOT just TX. CA unfortunately is very expensive, very hard to buy a house, unless you inherited it from your family. Traffic can be atrocious and many salaries are the same in CA as they are in other states, depending on what your job is. For that reasons it is very hard to live in CA. It is hard to justify living in CA b/c of those reasons.

It is tough, when ppl are almost MAD just b/c of where u were born? Yikes, where is the hospitality? I can't help that?!
I live in a free country where I want to find the best possible place to raise my kids and feel safe? What is wrong with that?

It is just interesting b/c doesn't matter which state forum you are on....ppl look at Californians the same way....It is really a shame.

It is a good thing, that when I meet ppl in person they don't act this way.
I still love TX and I went to college in TX, the hill country is beautiful....

The point of this thread was in NO WAY complaining about Californians. Hell, I was born and raised in SoCal before moving to TX. I was simply pointing out that a lot of CA people are moving to SA lately.

I'm from CA too. Bring it on! Texas could use a bigger shot of Californian culture. And we ARE all one country, even though many Texans wouldn't think so.

Don't forget that none of us were here first. The Indians tried to run us all off but failed.
Every state has people moving into and out of it looking for the right place to raise a family and have affordable living. Texas is about as good as it gets, I've lived coast to coast and up and down....every time I was transferred, I made it a stipulation of my transfer that when my assignment was complete, I get transferred back to SA. It worked everytime.
I aint goin no where but SA !!!!
