    I don't or ever have benefited by California's progressive policies.

    The only people who have benefited from California's Democrat progressive policies has been illegal aliens, criminals, the LGBT community and unions.

    Than frankly you are quite foolishly blind and why we don't vote for people like you in California. Might as well live in Arkansas; maybe you will move? A Republican in California is a lesson in masochism. When will you realize that?

    Who pays the taxes in California ?

    We already know who uses up all of the services paid for by the taxes.

    You hate where you live but seem hesitant to move to a Republican state. What's so wrong with Nebraska/ Oklahoma? Don't you think that you'd be happy with people like yourself?

    Mexicans can't declare victory as long as I and other native born Americans refuse to surrender.

    Unions created the middle class.
    Most mfg jobs were not highly skilled labor, but got paid high skilled labor due to unions.

    Yes, I left out the word not. I do that far to often. I think my mind goes faster than my fingers.

    It's certainly hormone and brain related no doubt. If you want to call that mentally affected, so be it. Many people are mentally affected, like schitzo, etc and live in society. And some with mental problems are far more dangerous to society than a person with biological sex parts but the hormone and brain function of the other sex.

    The high rates of suicide, IMO, is because society somewhat torches them. They have not been accepted, they have likely been physically or emotionally abused their entire life.

    No f'n clue how that is related to the post you responded to.
    But you did get your hourly post about Venezuelans in, so I guess that is what is really important.

    I see so many in these forums rail on CA while they live there.
    There's a name for those who complain about a situation and does nothing about it. I think it's whining.
    We know donnie is the chief whiner in the country.

    The only Californians who rail on California are those who remember when California was the Golden State.

    Well sure, but you had to have high value added jobs in order for business to afford to pay middle class wages. I know you must understand how that works. If a job is high value added, this generates the income that can pay higher wages, and the owners still make a profit after they pay themselves a nice income. My business was high value added jobs, so I paid middle class wages. I would have had a hard time, doing that, if I had been low value added service sector. Indeed, I could not have paid the wages I paid if I owned a fast food joint. Not enough margin, after cost of goods sold to pay what I paid my workers.

    Yes, I will not argue against the suicide being in part attributed to the way society views these people and their affections. After all we know some kids who get bullied, also commit suicide.

    I see these delusions, whatever the cause as being our reality. Therefore I think some serious research should be devoted to this, to see if we can help those who might want to be helped. If you don't want the help, then carry on in your delusion. The trouble comes in when some on the radical left call any research unnecessary, and even driven by some kind of phobia. Which is utter nonsense of course. And IMO, rather destructive.

    Republicans who hate living in California are like 'dumb and dumber' characters. We essentially ignore them and provide for them just like any other Californians.

    Today is close to 80F. It is currently 39F in Dallas & 49F in Houston.

    Calling it free, as if it costs no one a dime is not quite right. Right?

    I think about it a little differently, although I am in full support of single payer, medicare for all, and state college financed by a less than one percent tax on every wall street transaction. And as a social safety net, either no cost for the poor person or a low cost for the working poor when it comes to housing.

    But the best way to pull people out of poverty is by a nation having an economic model that provides living wage jobs for as many people as possible. And that means an end to slave labor globalism that guts an economy like ours of living wage jobs, replacing them with working poor service sector jobs that require for taxpayers to provide welfare not only for the working poor, but as a subsidy for corporations who will not pay living wages. For it takes a specific level of income to just survive, and if the business is not paying that, than other working americans are. On behalf of the corporation who will not pay living wages. We have business models based upon this kind of welfare, so the corporation can max out profits.
