If only you could see the look of shock I have on my face. California ranks dead last in “quality of life” according to a new study by U.S. News & World Report. Really? California? I don’t believe it. It must be fake news.
California is a liberal’s paradise! A corrupt government, high taxes, highest numbers of homelessness recorded since January of 2017, 1-bedroom apartments that cost north of $2000 a month on rent (and that’s just for apartments that aren’t total crap), tons and tons of scattered used needles as well as feces littering San Francisco. What’s not to like?
Oh, you mean to tell me you’re not braindead? You don’t like any of this stuff? You’re a logical person with morals and a basic set of standards?
Right, I think I’ve run that joke into the ground by now. Why am I not surprised to see that California SUCKS in terms of quality of life?
The U.S. News wrote in their report: “The ignominious honor reflects California’s low marks in the sub-categories of environmental quality and social engagement. The latter category measures voting participation and community bonds.”
“Californians scored poorly in part because they’re simply insufferable, U.S. News suggested.” You know, I tend not to try to attack the people of a state or political party. I try not to insult them because that would simply not help in trying to make some of these people understand how illogical liberal philosophy is. At the same time, I don’t think I could agree more with that last statement.
I won’t ignore the fact that part of the reason California is in the gigantic mess it is in is because of the people they elect and the culture they live in. People like Gov. Brown make California a “s**thole” because the people of California elect insufferable ignoramuses like Gov. Brown and the Oakland mayor who is hell-bent on breaking the law to help illegals avoid ICE agents, knowing she will likely not be impeached despite the fact that she’s obstructing justice and assisting in the escape of criminals.
Frankly, these kind of people would never get close to a political seat if it weren’t for the fact that the culture of California is inherently socialist. California lawmakers are looking to add a constitutional amendment to “add a 7 percent corporate tax surcharge for any profit over $1 million,” according to Breitbart. In essence, they’re looking to take any money California businesses make from Trump’s tax cuts.
The report continues: “’In addition to a healthy environment, a person’s quality of life is largely a result of their interactions with those around them,’ the magazine wrote in a blurb accompanying the results”.
“One way to measure quality life is whether residents can even afford to have a roof over their heads, and by that standard, California is failing.”
Again, I’m not really surprised by that. As I mentioned earlier, they have insanely high taxes and rent for a decent 1-bedroom apartment. Financially, it’s almost a death sentence to work in California.
And it’s such a shame, too. California is one of the richest states when it comes to natural beauty. Sandy beaches in Los Angeles, Santa Cruz, Santa Barbara, San Diego, etc.; jaw-dropping beauty in Lake Tahoe, and the ever-stunning Yosemite National Park, to name a few.
If California weren’t the socialist hub that it is, I would love to live there. If California were conservative like Texas, Alabama, Georgia or any conservative state, it would likely be the richest state in the country. It’s already rich in terms of natural beauty, as I just said. But I also mean rich in terms of financial and constitutional rights appeals.
Part of the reason I love living in southern states is because they’re extremely conservative. Most people are solid Christians where I live. We love our Lord, we love our country, we love our guns and we love our freedoms. You’ll be pressed to find very many people like that in California, at least in the coastal cities.
If California were a red state and as conservative as any southern state, there’d be little reason for anyone not to live there. Sure, you’d have your occasional forest fire, which is bad, no doubt. But otherwise, California would be the single best place to live in in the whole world. Great natural beauty, blessed by the warm sun and the host state of a couple of the greatest basketball teams in NBA history in the Los Angeles Lakers and Golden State Warriors.
The Left has utterly destroyed California with their socialist policies that benefit only those within the government and those who are friends with people in the government. Really, the same goes for New York City. NYC, if it weren’t for the crime rate and for the Leftist culture, would be another great place to live in. Manhattan should be celebrated as a staple of capitalism, but is being run by socialists.
But returning to California, it’s really a shame that it’s as horrible to live in as it is. It had so much potential to be a great American state, but the Left has utterly ruined it with next to no hope of return. Normalcy in California is abnormality anywhere else. Transgenders are celebrated rather than psychologically helped. The LGBT community has no shame in parading their junk and shoving their literally sinful lifestyles down everyone else’s throats.
Christianity is nothing but a religion to be mocked and ridiculed and not to be defended at the risk of becoming a social pariah. Islam is a “religion” to be celebrated as the best one available despite it being a culture of death and despair. At the end of the day, really any religion other than Christianity or Judaism is to be celebrated or accepted in their culture.
In terms of illegal immigrants, they treat them like they’re simply down-trodden people that deserve a chance here in this country. To Californians, they’re not criminals, despite the fact that they literally broke the law to get here and continuously break the law by their mere presence in this country.
In terms of race, there’s almost nothing that matters more. Your race is the only thing that should be considered when applying for a job or applying to college. If you’re black, you should be considered for the job simply in the name of “diversity”. If you’re white, you have already been privileged enough in your life and shouldn’t be considered for the job ahead of a minority. This is literally the opposite of what MLK wanted and the Left is unapologetic about it. They opposed him then, they oppose him now, all-the-while pretending to support him and his message.
And in terms of abortion, that’s really the most important thing out there. You want to kill your baby? Fine and dandy. You’re literally minutes away from giving birth but you want to end its life on a mere whim? Great! And let’s force everyone to pay for it to boot. You think life is sacred? Screw you! My body, my choice! Even though it’s not their body that they’re affecting. It’s the body of a child that they’re desecrating. And they do it with a smile on their face.
The culture of California is utterly abhorrent. It’s a modern-day Sodom. Due to this, the state is the single worst place to live in in the entire country. I can’t say I’m surprised. But I am disappointed. So much potential utterly wasted thanks entirely to the Left and their destructive policies.
