why California sucks balls

As a proud, loyal East Coaster, I already know that California sucks, but here's a list of 55 reasons that justify my sentiment. Some of the juicier ones:

1. One survey of business executives has ranked California as the worst state in America to do business for 8 years in a row.

9. California is tied with New York for the highest gasoline tax rate in the country.

12. As of October, only Nevada and Rhode Island had higher unemployment rates than California.

15. California teachers are the highest paid in the nation, but California students rank 48th in math and 49th in reading.

23. Since 2007, the number of children living in poverty in the state of California has increased by 30 percent.

30. Residential customers in California pay about 29 percent more for electricity than the national average.

42. Just recently, the city attorney of San Bernardino, California told citizens to “lock their doors and load their guns” because there is not enough money to pay for adequate police protection any longer.

55. Overall, the state of California has experienced a net loss of about four million residents to other states over the past 20 years.

With piles of human shit and random syringes strewn about the sidewalks of San Francisco—a city that used to be decent—I'm in no hurry to visit. Same goes for L.A., and pretty much anywhere else in southern California.


  1. Why focus so much on the negative, bigot? At least California is tops in glib platitudinizing!

  2. There is plenty worth seeing in California, but most of that is in the natural world rather than the "civilized" world. That being said, I don't think I'd ever want to live in California. LA definitely rubs me the wrong way, but then again I am East-coast born and bred, like you.

  3. I don't even know how to process this latest travesty or this one out of California that both involve criminal activity committed by Koreans. The real kicker is that the Koreans committing the succulent crime may actually be let go if they are in the U.S. illegally due to California's new illegal immigrant sanctuary policy.

    But it isn't just Koreans in the school scam, both Indians and even U.S. higher education schools are in on it too:
