Greetings,

My wife and I have tired of 49 years of “liberal progressivism” a/k/a a complete collapse of the economy and common sense in California.

I can pay cash for many homes for sale in JeffCo. I assume we’ll be safe there?

Sure, you will be safe. Watch the roads in the fall and winter, early Spring. Mostly ice and occasionally snow, it gets touchy on those roads in those hills.

How would we know if you will be safe? Are you into drugs? Gambling? Prostitutes? Dog fighting?

Trouble finds those who look for it. Doesn’t matter if they are in JeffCo or Walnit Park.

LOL. The meth flows like the Meramec in Spring in some parts of Missouri.

So you are moving from a state that had 3% GDP last year to a state that had 1.1% GDP last year to escape economic collapse. Sounds like solid logic.

With real estate prices 1/4 the cost of the bay area . . . and that's in the "good" parts of the STL area. And state taxes that are half of CA . . .and MO's tax rate isn't exactly low. And without the intolerant groupthink progressive politics. Makes complete sense, actually.

He cited the "economic collapse" of California which is especially ridiculous because anyone who lives here knows that Missouri absolutely refuses to do the things it needs to do to be competitive in the future.

Also, California is a large and diverse state. The whole state is not the Bay Area. That is like saying home prices in Huntleigh or Ladue represent the entire St. Louis area. There are plenty of affordable and conservative areas in California.

I think your post is a perfect example of why he may fit in very well in outstate Missouri. Data based decision making takes a backseat to notions, over generalizations and politics in those places. Ironically, the consequence of that line of thinking is what is causing hard times in outstate Missouri and why it may very well face a financial collapse in the future.

Missouri should be quickly expanding broadband internet and tech training into the rural areas. There are barely any jobs there now and every year manufacturing automation and consolidation of farms is eliminating the few they do have. They should also be supporting the MTC instead of trying to kill it. Meanwhile, instead, the pressing issue last week in our legislature was making sure meat substitutes couldn't use the word meat. So stupid.

Giving up on Valley Park and Clayton? Herculaneum or Imperial just might be your cup of tea.
