I think you are right. I made a mistake of EVER trusting or forming friendships and relationships with people in California. Everyone, no matter where they are originally from, becomes a part of the slime-mold in that state. They take up on the same trends, same ideas and mentality, but they love to pretend at first like they are "different". They probably simmer so long in their own stew of misery and mental illness that they don't even realize the stench or the fact that they are just like everyone else who lives there. Kind of like how someone who lives in their own house and becomes used to the smell of their home, doesn't even recognize it after a while, whereas a new visitor will immediately recognize the distinct scent of a home. Thus the opinion of the homeowner cannot be trusted because your senses tell otherwise.Exactly. They californicate everything they touch. A buddy of mine moved away from Boise about two years ago, fed up with it. He suggested that the only way to keep a state conservative is to make it completely inhospitable to those who will change it. Apparently in Boise some people were destroying any cars that they saw Cali plates on, but even that wasn't keeping them out.
