Reader: What is everyone's problem with Californians? Get over it!

colorflagsad.jpg
Don't Californicate Colorado! That was a popular bumpersticker years ago, and this state's residents -- particularly those who moved to Colorado relatively recently, perhaps even from the Golden State -- still seem stuck on the saying. But as they leap to defend Colorado from a commenter who thinks Denver "sucks elephant balls," they should be careful not to jump on California, cautions another reader.

Says ericakrysteen:

What is everyone's problem with Californians? Seriously? Californians make up a lot of the transplant numbers, which means we help with Colorado's economy. This country is a melting pot, which means EVERY state has transplants. Get over it and stop worrying about nothing.

I've been here for almost ten years and the hateful looks I get from "natives" when I tell them I'm from California is literally the worst part about this state. This place is beautiful -- of course people are going to come here. I wasn't planning on staying, but I fell in love with this place.

Stop complaining, and appreciate what you have. I may be California-grown but there is a reason why I planted my feet in Denver soil.

And while you're at it, stop singling out Texans, too.

Can't we all just get along?

Let's see, nowhere is the gap between rich and poor worse than in California, which also has the biggest budget deficits and worst economy.


Not Californicating Colorado, or Nevada, or anywhere else just means to not mess up your new state the way you messed up California.  Just remember, you left California for a reason, don't turn your new state into another failure like your last state.

There was a time not long ago when California was a beautiful place and state, now you have to hunt to find a decent setting near the ocean.  The large cities are overrun with illegals and bums, sorry folks, all I see you wanting here is to change it to Mexifornia, where everything is liberal and without funds.

Us Texas and California immigrants should make common cause, interbreed and produce little Texifornicators. That will make the local hipsters go mental. .. 

For the haters, unless you're Native American, that 'Native' bumper sticker on your car don't have the ring of truth to it. Just sayin' ...

I do not like the Californian language, not that Coloradans in general have much respect for English either.

Californians, in large part, are loony liberals who have essentially ruined their home state.  (Do you know how high taxes are there?)  They are almost single-handedly responsible for turning Colorado into a dreaded blue state.


How long do you think it will be before California goes bankrupt?  Do you want Colorado to follow?  


We were at one time independent thinking individualists with libertarian leanings. The liberals are well on their way to ruining Colorado like the parasites they are.

@gofastgo Yes, that's all you see...we call those hallucinations.  That's why you are so uninformed.

Now get those crazy voices out of your head...turn off limpballs and fauKKKs.

@tangoterminar The "Interbreeding" part has left a pretty sour mental image. Please refrain from such vulgarity in the future.

@fishingblues Jet it is a KKKultservaturd that is in power that causes economic collapse....that's what happened to california, and that is what happened nationally with the first and second great republican depression.

Fishingrainbow claims to be a libertARYAN, yet he has failed to give a single example of where his failed little cult has successfully governed.  

It's cute when a yappy little cult starts chanting about how independent they are....their eyes glaze over, they start swaying back and forth....the little shits even look alike.  They look alike, they whine alike, yet they feel they are rugged little doughy individualists that are all alike.

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A REPUBLICAN (or libertARYAN.)
By John Gray

Joe gets up at 6:00am to prepare his morning coffee. He fills his pot
full of good clean drinking water because some liberal fought for
minimum water quality standards.

He takes his daily medication with his first swallow of coffee. His
medications are safe to take because some liberal fought to insure
their safety and work as advertised.

All but $10.00 of his medications are paid for by his employers
medical plan because some liberal union workers fought their
employers for paid medical insurance, now Joe gets it too. He prepares
his morning breakfast, bacon and eggs this day. Joe's bacon is safe to
eat because some liberal fought for laws to regulate the meat packing
industry.

Joe takes his morning shower reaching for his shampoo; His bottle is
properly labeled with every ingredient and the amount of its contents
because some liberal fought for his right to know what he was putting
on his body and how much it contained. Joe dresses, walks outside and
takes a deep breath. The air he breathes is clean because some tree-
hugging liberal fought for laws to stop industries from polluting our
air.

He walks to the subway station for his government subsidized ride to
work; it saves him considerable money in parking and transportation
fees. You see, some liberal fought for affordable public
transportation, which gives everyone the opportunity to be a
contributor.

Joe begins his work day; he has a good job with excellent pay,
medicals benefits, retirement, paid holidays and vacation because some
liberal union members fought and died for these working standards.
Joe's employer pays these standards because Joe's employer doesn't
want his employees to call the union.

If Joe is hurt on the job or becomes unemployed he'll get a worker
compensation or unemployment check because some liberal didn't think
he should loose his home because of his temporary misfortune.

It's noon time, Joe needs to make a Bank Deposit so he can pay some
bills. Joe's deposit is federally insured by the FSLIC because some
liberal wanted to protect Joe's money from unscrupulous bankers who
ruined the banking system before the depression.

Joe has to pay his Fannie Mae underwritten Mortgage and his below
market federal student loan because some stupid liberal decided that
Joe and the government would be better off if he was educated and
earned more money over his lifetime.

Joe is home from work, he plans to visit his father this evening at
his farm home in the country. He gets in his car for the drive to
dad's; his car is among the safest in the world because some liberal
fought for car safety standards.

He arrives at his boyhood home. He was the third generation to live
in the house financed by Farmers Home Administration because bankers
didn't want to make rural loans. The house didn't have electric until
some big government liberal stuck his nose where it didn't belong and
demanded rural electrification. (Those rural Republicans would still
be sitting in the dark)

He is happy to see his dad who is now retired. His dad lives on Social
Security and his union pension because some liberal made sure he could
take care of himself so Joe wouldn't have to. After his visit with dad
he gets back in his car for the ride home.

He turns on a radio talk show, the host keeps saying that liberals
are bad and conservatives are good (He doesn't tell Joe that his
beloved Republicans have fought against every protection and benefit
Joe enjoys throughout his day). Joe agrees, "We don't need those big
government liberals ruining our lives; after all, I'm a self-made man
who believes everyone should take care of themselves, just like I
have."

@muhutdafuga @fishingblues Pretty much a zerox of what is said about cons/libtrns of all of the blogs.

Your screeds would be more effective if they were a little more original.

Also, when you go to Wikipedia and READ the entry they have for Soviet Propaganda, it sadly is the exact same playbook you have been using here; the New Man, Class Enemy(this one especially applies to you), and the New Society.

Now that we all  have your playbook, expect for thing to get a little more difficult, a little rougher.

Not that any of the Occupy crowd was anything to worry about.

@muhutdafuga Hitler was called a Fascist  because of Stalin. Fascism is Gov't by Corporation.

Stalin was afraid he couldn't sell a war to his people against Socialists, the ugly step-child of Communism so he started a propaganda campaign to label them as Big Biz gangsters. And the illusion has remained ever since.

Don't ever forget that Hitler ran and governed on a national socialist platform.

@muhutdafuga @sbrunningman2 @fishingblues Libs are "job creators"? Hahah...good one, you fucking tool. Most libs wouldn't know how to create a business, a business model, or a job if a million dollar idea hit them in their ugly, unwashed faces. It's all consistent, of course...capitalism='greed'. We need to "spread the wealth", because the "rich don't pay their fair share". Remember? Being a free-market capitalist, job creator, and/entrepeneur goes against EVERYTHING the left stands for. 


No, you're the chronic complainers, protesters, shit-flingers, Occupy-for-3 week-ers, losers. Envious little bitches, all of you.

@muhutdafuga @sbrunningman2 @fishingblues OMG! The delusions the left labors under are stupendous. Seriously, where do you get this stuff from? LMOA!!!

By the way, NYT Bestseller list and  Amazon rate books that sell, and conservative authors and/or ones that attack Lib's outsell Lefty authors by a substantial margin. But, as per usual, don't let a few facts get in the way of a good theory.

LMAO!!!!

@fishingblues @muhutdafuga If you spent less time having fantasies about me, you might stop being such a dumbass.  I can't help notice that you're off topic.  While we're off topic, consider:


Events of the 1920s:  The first great republican depression.
The Roaring Twenties were an era dominated by Republican presidents: Warren Harding (1920-1923), Calvin Coolidge (1923-1929) and Herbert Hoover (1929-1933). Under their conservative economic philosophy of laissez-faire ("leave it alone"), markets were allowed to operate without government interference. Taxes and regulation were slashed dramatically, monopolies were allowed to form, and inequality of wealth and income reached record levels. The country was on the conservative's preferred gold standard, and the Federal Reserve was not allowed to significantly change the money supply.

The fact that the Great Depression began in 1929, then, on the Republicans' watch, is a great embarrassment to conservative economists. Many try to blame the worsening of the Depression on Hoover, for supposedly betraying the laissez-faire ideology. As the time line in the next section will show, however, almost all of Hoover's government action occurred during his last year in office, long after the worst of the Depression had hit. In fact, he was voted out of office for doing "too little too late." The only notable exception to his earlier idleness was the Smoot-Hawley tariff of 1930, whose minor impact we shall explore in more detail later on.

@DonkeyHotay The stunning lack of education of that statement makes any response of no use.

You Lib's like to talk as if you have read a few books, but than in your attitudes and responses it is obvious you have read one book, the same book, and have the views that conform to that viewpoint.

It's a bit like the Muslim population. They enjoy some of the highest literacy rates in the modern world. The problem lies in the fact that something like 96% of them have only read one book, the Koran.

Sad. A lack if intellectual curiosity combined with a certain apathy, or just plan laziness, has lead to you being a movement of useful idiots. In other words, tools.

North Korea = a REPUBLICAN paradise ... because it says "republic" right there in the name, just like your idiotic assertion about Nazism.


The use of the name “National Socialism” arose out of earlier attempts by German right-wing figures to create a nationalist redefinition of “socialism”, as a reactionary alternative to both internationalist Marxist socialism and free market capitalism.

@sbrunningman2 @muhutdafuga @fishingblues @DonkeyHotay So, my shallow thinking little cultist, what facts disagree with your indoctrination?

Of course I have no credibility with you, a cultist is only interested in their cult mantra.  I bet when you watch fauKKKs, your eyes glaze over, you start swaying back and forth, and you repeat the mantra after your cultmaster gives you your feelings for the day.
