Survival Rules for Pro-Trump Californians Living Behind the Blue Curtain

But the obstacles facing California’s Trump supporters, conservatives, or just anyone opposed to the Democratic agenda are no joke. While the rest of the nation can look forward to the rollback of all the excesses and abuses of the Obama years, California’s one-party machine is doubling down on all those disastrous policies, including continued harboring and supporting of illegal immigration, out-of-control environmental regulations, and more onerous tax increases.

But know this: There are a lot of us out here in the once glorious Golden State. It’s just that most of us are hiding in plain sight.

I remember how when I watched the Waltons, I had to remind myself they were supposedly in western Virginia and not West Virginia.

Eastern West Virginia - the land Robert Byrd built?

 

Seems I heard something like this before......

Robert Byrd is highly respected in West Virginia, which came first for him in Washington.

 

 

A lot named in his honor.

 

 

 

 

Byrd is WV equivalent of Strom Thurmond in SC.  Also Rep. Mendell Rivers of Charleston, S.C. in the House.  One person quipped during Rivers' tenure that if he put one more federal facility in Charleston, it would sink.

Between Thurmond and Rivers, tremendous number of federal facilities built in S.C., most of them military.  Military facilities have some of the highest financial impact on an area.  Not only is there the pay and benefits of the military personnel and civilian employees, there are also the many lucarative contracts, off post housing and entertainment, shopping, etc.

At one time, Charleston had two Navy bases, one Army facility, a Coast Guard Base and an Air Force Base that I know about.  The Marines were down the coast in Beaufort.  There were two other Air Force Bases and a major Army Base elsewhere in the state.  Not to mention one of the largest per capita National Guards and Reserve Components in the nation.

There were great clubs in the South of Market area, circa 1990.

 

The last time we were there(for her gay niece's wedding about 12 years ago) my wife and I walked around the Tenderloin area one night and found a classic old style piano bar. We had a great time singing along with the piano player and the rest of the crowd there.

 

(...and yes, he played that Billy Joel song twice while we were there...a fun and memorable night it was)

Before relocating to L.A. with the airlines and before I met her, my wife(who was born in your neck of woods back there, but at 5 years of age moved to San Diego) worked in Frisco, ahem, I mean San Francisco for about 5 years.

 

She loves Frisco, ahem, I mean San Francisco, and every time we go there, which isn't often, I can see why.

 

(...btw, just considering the climate, you Philly boy you would've fit right into the place...ever heard Mark Twain's famous line about the place: "The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco", ?)

Well, ya know DGF, it's been said that if you happen to be a straight male, Frisco is a place to live because your competition in the dating arena is stacked in your favor!

 

(...yeah, that's right...this ol' native Angeleno here still occasionally calls that beautiful city, perhaps THE most beautiful city in these United States, "Frisco", and JUST to get a rise out of some of those pretentious San Franciscans with their upturned noses in their damp SF air...'cause they HATE when ya call their city that now days, ya know!) ;)

There's always been a great rivalry between LA and SF. Nothing exhibits this more than this......I was in SF once, when two great looking females walked by a hotel entrance. I overheard one hotel employee say to another, "Who says we don't have the women?"

So, kind'a like if they break up my old stompin' grounds, I could then say I used to live in the western part of South California, eh ham?!

 

(...OR, if Jake's theory eventually comes true, I'd then say I used to live in the southern part of Coastal California, right?!)

I bet you have to put up with the constant head explosions from the electric bills.  

 

 

Actually in my case ham, the answer would be "no", and even though that map shows the state of Arizona's electricity rates higher than the national norm.

 

Ya see, first, I don't have a whole lot o' those electronic gadgets to run like you do. My interests when it comes to "things" and as I'm sure you know by now, are in cars and motorcycles, and THEY run on gasoline of course.

 

And secondly, and unlike those poor souls who live down in that concrete urban sprawl of Phoenix and where they must run their air conditioning units 24/7 during the summer months because even in the dead of night it seldom gets below 80 freakin' degrees, we UP HERE in the higher elevation of beautiful picturesque Sedona ONLY have run those suckers during the daylight hours and because after the suns sets it'll almost always drops to a very pleasant 65-70 degrees during that time of year, and thus we just open our windows and allow the outside ambient temperature into the house while we watch evening television shows and later hit the ol' sack.

 

And so, no, MY electrical bills would not be accurately reflected in that map o' yours.

 

(...oh, and one more thing here dude...I also don't have to put up with all that damn humid weather you poor souls who live east of the Rocky Mountains have to put up with during this same time o' year...yep, life is good here in beautiful picturesque Sedona Arizona alright!)

Hmmm...I think the only thing you forgot to mention here ham is all the cheap and convenient electricity you have at your disposal for all those electronic gadgets you have, TOO!

 

;)

 

Can thank coal and gas for it. :)

 

I bet you have to put up with the constant head explosions from the electric bills.  

 

Might explain why Alaska is warmer...heat from red hot tempers.
