There's a lot of truth in that video. Sadly - I recognize several of the video clips in it. A truely beautiful state - ruined by nut-case psycho politics. ... but the weather's nice ...

My former state also.  it is a mess.  Between the taxes, regulations, and the nasty homeless mess, I don't blame people for leaving.  Unfortunately, my adopted state is not far behind CA in being stupid.
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.
Alexis de Tocqueville
