Okay, what is so unique about the Pacific Northwest.
Ok fair enough but when somewhere is 3,000 miles away the people do begin to diverge.

Ah, gotcha.
There isn't enough time in the day to correct all of the things that are falsely and widely believed on this board and in real life.

I've never heard that about Berkeley or California being trashed, but I'm from NYC and I might have been sheleted from those opinions. Strangely, most Americans seem to hate NYC and foreigners love it, but foreigners hate the USA. People's opinions of NYC mean nothing to me regardless of whether it's negative or positive. But the negative stereotyping about American people is pervasive and grating when you have to deal with it on a daily basis.

I'd bet anything that the people saying "don't take it personally" would not like it if I chose to be a knob and be obnoxious to people from other countries for the fun of it.

Now, I will first point out that there is a lot of hype and buzzwords in that piece. For example, there is no "secession fever". There are small movements, maybe not as small is those who dismiss it claim but there isn't a fever yet.

Where would the line be for Northern and Southern California? Even within the state now, there is disagreement as to where it is. If a split were to happen, political divisions would only be part of it. Firstly, in a political sense, Idaho does not at all belong in Cascadia! With that being said, even eastern Washington and Oregon don't belong with the western portions of those states. Cascadia supporters generally consider it a bioregion as far as natural boundaries are concerned and this puts Cascadia into conflict with California as far Northern CA is part of that. Californians would insist that current borders be recognized. I am not against a split, I just don't see it the way blogs such as this one seem to suggest it. These differences are likely what will keep a split from happening any time too soon.

Man, do your own research ok? All you will do is ask the same questions then deny anything that's presented to you anyway and I don't have time to waste with you like that.

Yep, its alcoholic crack-smoking mayor is a great example of its Canadian mindset.
