Why I Like California

In In My Opinion... on November 3, 2010 at 5:52 am

  1. California reflects the true nature of the American people.  Yes, it’s true.  California is a pretty centrist state. We have Republicans, Democrats, Independents, and, yes even a few odd parties.  But all-in-all we tend toward the center.  To badly quote someone in Delaware, “ We’re not a Witch…. We’re you.”
  2. Californians can’t be bought.  I’m happy to say that the people of the state of California didn’t cave in to the millions of dollars being spent to buy their vote this election season.  We took a look at the candidates for what they are, and voted our minds.  In the long run, we went with real experience rather than with anger and vitriol.
  3. Californians really do care about the environment.  We were given a choice of trashing our environmental bills for a while, as urged on by Texas oil companies, or to stay the course and try and make our environment cleaner.  We chose to breath fresh air, drink clean water, and to try and walk the more difficult road.  Good for us!
  4. No, we’re not all Pot Heads.  Yup, we had a bill to make pot legal.  Nope, we didn’t pass it.  Nuff said.
  5. Ok, let’s face it.  It’s November 3rd and we’re expecting clear skies, light breezes, and high temperature of 90 degrees today.  How’s the weather where you are?
