  1. We’re packing up the double-wide darling & moving to? We’ll flip a coin, heads to Texas, Crackers & Tocos or tails Florida, Cubans & Puerto Ricans. The plus side of Florida, all the swamp creatures & the first one to honk at an intersection has the right of way.

  2. Washington state gained residents, really?

    I know of 3 couples who have left recently. But, I’ve heard also that Californians are moving here, particularly those from San Francisco.

    Lord help us. 🤦‍♀️

  3. I don’t think people realize how difficult it is to force the middle class folks to move out of California. It is a beautiful state with a lot of things to do – I loved living in California.

    Politicians and the loony liberals have screwed it up so badly that middle class working folks are forced to leave. In most of this country, a $500k home is a dream home. In Orange County, $500k will get you a starter home. Gas is at least $1 a gallon higher than anywhere else (leaving Hawaii out of the mix), and in SoCal you were essentially required to spend a lot of time on the road (note: Los Angeles was essentially designed for people to to work in one place, live in another, and use the freeways to commute). Progressives have basically been making the state unlivable for all but the wealthy or poor, and their policies have, best case, helped no one but the wealthy who are free to ignore the rules.

    Newsome and his like minded ilk have screwed up one of the most beautiful states in the nation. Please don’t let this happen at the federal level; you will have no place to escape to.

    I’m thinking your family and mine have a lot in common. We should move, but where to. Obviously we’re not welcome in Texas. I have no desire to move there anyway. Our very conservative neighbors nailed it. “If we could figure out where we would want to move, we’d do so”. And they have been traveling and searching. The big problem is we like where we live. Newsom finally made it painful enough that we all agree. We need to get the F out of here. I dunno. AZ is one F’d up state right now. New Mexico, off the charts Libtard. Idaho, all those people there bitching about Liberal Californians have no problem selling their home to us at inflated prices and then bitching about us moving there. Ironic, ain’t it. I dunno. Maybe Maui. I’m ready for the shooting to start. Stay safe.

  5. I live in a d’rat hellhole because …. She Who Must Be Obeyed will not move away from our kids, grandkids, greatgrandkids … period!

    myself, I would’ve moved to Tennessee years ago (Fla or SC was second)

    circumstances is what it is ….

    ammo up & save your dixie cups …. ’cause the South will rise again!

    Yep. We’re in a spot. I like the weather here, not too hot and not too cold. I love my house and we have a view that is tough to replace. Conservative and hard working Latino family next door and an anti vaxxer on the other side. We are in a pocket of normalcy, kinda.

    But, Seattle is getting worse and that nightmare is working it’s way out to the sticks where we are. Where we had a rental condo (in a good area 29 minutes from here) is now getting home invasions, break ins, car stolen…a crazy guy busting out windows at the QFC parking lot. That never happened 5 years ago.

    Where to go?!? Idaho? Montana? My current favorite is Sheridan WY. Next week it’ll be some place else. I just don’t know.

    But, someone else I know, just moved his family to Arizona. So, the trend continues.

  7. The south will rise again? In a civil war wetdream, pussies bring it on bitches. Confederate statues & monuments are being all torn down because of idiots trying to twist American history while they promote the second coming of their Lucifer, rot in hell 1st.

  8. One has to wonder if there are full time career opportunities in working for U-Haul driving their trucks from Texas to places like NY and CA and flying back home again?

  9. When you can sell a 2 bedroom dingbat house in Reseda for a million bucks, and move almost anywhere else in the country and live like a king, why wouldn’t you. The only question I have, is given the fact that California is losing population, who is plopping down 7 figures for that house?
