The land of intolerance, hypocrisy, and progressivism... but I repeat myself. This article lists some examples of the intolerance, incompetence, and progressivism that have come to exemplify the Golden State. NOTE: While the Golden State once referred to the color of the dried grass hills so common in California, it now refers to the vagrant urine-covered streets of San Francisco or L.A.

🗒️ Note:
I'm a native Californian, but it makes me sad to say that. This state is the most constantly bad, and least tolerant of the states I've lived in or visited. It's kind of a "how not to" on how to govern, mind your own business, or help those less fortunate. Cali usually ranks dead last on Quality of Life metrics according to U.S. News and world report. I'm not sure about that -- if you're rich, it's pretty nice. But if you're struggling and have a family, it's harsh. Their progressivism has made it one of the hardest states to get ahead in.

Basics[edit | edit source]

Having lived all over the nation, the Bay Area is the least tolerant place I've lived.

Tolerance being how you treat people you disagree with -- so the way they treat cigarette smokers (but not marajuana), the military, fast food restaurants, those that disagree with them on any topic by calling everyone racist, sexist, homophobes, that's how much tolerance they have. The collectivist credo: demand conformity, bitch when you don't get it, henpeck anyone who disagrees, then blame the other side for not being tolerant enough of your ideas (if they complain), while being completely intolerance to theirs. Cuba, Venezuela, the Bay Area? The differences are just in the degree.

Conclusion[edit | edit source]

Some people claim that California is "leading the nation". On some issues they try -- but sometimes I don't want to follow.

Others claim that California is more "Liberal". I find it ironic that the nation finds California "liberal", when about some things California the biggest bunch of politically-correct, intollerant, goose stepping brown shirts I've ever met. Liberal means tolerant towards those you disagree with, and no state is less tolerant of others views than California. Of course, not all laws in California are bad -- and niether is all of California. Californians are tollerant of a lot of things. But I think that when people think of California as the left-coast, or as Liberal, they might want to think about what that means, because I'm pretty sure it doesn't mean what they think it does.

While on his Honeymoon, H. J. Whitley was founding a town from acrage he bought from the E.C. Hurd ranch. When a local Chinese immigrant in a wagon was asked what he was doing, he replied "I holly-wood"... meaning 'hauling wood.' And Whitley decided to name his new town Hollywood.
Los Angeles
Seal of Los Angeles.svg
L.A. is a poorly run city, and it's controlled by the far left. The reasonable infer that correlation might have some causation. The idiots in the PRC (People's Republic of California) and L.A., can not. Time to put a wall around it, and write it off from being part of America.
San Jose
San Jose is the heart of woke bigotry, wrapped in a complete lack of self-awareness, wallowing in a State run by the worst of the same. Shame, while many great refugees have fled, there are still many good people left behind. Hopefully the last of them will take the American Flag with them when they leave.
