native americans are leaving while immigrants (probably illegal) move in.I myself am considering a more than fair job offer in Ft Lauderdale but I am not sure I would like it there.Native of LA all my life.I hate to see so many leaving I think the high taxes and property are part of it.Also did any of you hear about the state budget being 14 billion short in the next few years.Gov arnie is supposed to hold an emergency session next month but republicans (thank goodness) have already said no to any tax increases.

It's yet another jab at White people -- nothing new.

I couldn't resist that joke. There are some posts on CityData that just demand sarcastic responses.

As for native Californians (of all ethnic backgrounds) moving out: this is true, due to the high cost of living here (and, TBF, in most of the desirable places in the US). Not that native Californians have been a majority in California during our lifetimes - the percentage of Californians born elsewhere has remained the same since the 1860s at 66%. Obviously the places they've come from have changed through the years, though.

I am one that is leaving. We live up in Oxnard. I grew up there and in Port Hueneme. Have loved it my entire life. Just never able to buy a home because I missed the days when homes were $200,000 and less. It wasn't that long ago. These prices went throught the roof during the past 10 years. I know that things are declining. We are leaving for the city of Surprise, Arizona. A suburb of Phoenix. During the past 5 years I have visited that area and with all the people that have left the LA area, including Ventura County, Orange County and San Diego County, it feels like home. Just going to miss the beaches and the mild weather. But then prices have really dropped in the Phoenix metro area. Our home is less than $200,000 brand new. We love it hear, but we also love it there.

I heard something yesterday on TV -- I don't know how true it is -- but I guess Arnold plans to let prisoners leave prison because there isn't any money to keep them incarcerated. The commentator thought this move might force Republicans to increase taxes.

Letting prisoners out early, reason # 412 why I am leaving as well. Soon2B, my wife has family in Surprise, been there a few times and gotta say I kinda liked it, better than other areas around Pheonix I have been.

Since Davis was recalled, he state's revenues have risen at a faster rate than inflation + population growth, yet the legislature spends even MORE. Its like getting a 20% raise, then doubling your house payment. It makes no sense. Of course, the government's solution to their own overspending is to just raise taxes. Gee, I wish I could just make myself a raise any time I spent too much.
