    Awww, man.

    That just makes me want to move right back to L.A.! (Just kidding)
    I spent 28 years in L.A. county, from 1977 to 2005, and watched it decline from what used to be a literal paradise into a 3rd world sh*thole.
    As a General Contractor, it was once a gold mine- race riots, wildfires, earthquakes, mudslides, tenants who demolish units before they moved out, and older homes falling into disrepair from negligence.

    Riding a motorcycle there (especially on the 405, 110, 134, 10, and 5 freeways) was considered suicidal, yet I somehow always survived the (literally) worst drivers in the entire USA. Even riding the great biking roads like PCH and Mullholland was still pretty life-threatening if you strayed near a BMW or yuppie-driven Porsche.
    I have a lot of good memories of L.A., like the Sunset Strip clubs, dating a lot of hot “actress wanna-bees,” and meeting & working for a lot of “Hollywood types.”

    But those days, and the good times there are long gone, never to happen again.
    Glad I got in and out before it turned into a living hell.

    Hmm. So the federal government fails in its duty to defend our borders and does not enforce our laws, so it’s Californian’s fault. Yeah sure. See also Prop 187 – cancelled by a federal judge. How ’bout we don’t give away free stuff to illegal aliens and their crimmigrant babies don’t get to be US citizens by birth?

    My 18 year old daughter has been with the fam to Cali and SoCal at least 3 times, I guess. She wants to take a trip back there with her cohort of friends, but I told her today that the LA she enjoyed a few years ago (3 or 4?) is gone. It’s a homeless encampment.

    If they don’t vote Newsom out, just imagine the next strange administration to come. You thought Blade Runner was a dystopian fantasy? Guess what? It was prophecy.

    It’s a damn shame.

    I lived there 40 years ago, it was nice.
    Glad I was there then, not now.
    Memories is cool.
    Still have friends there, I’ll never go back.

    I don’t watch the news much, but last I heard, we now got the former Mister Jenner running for governess.
    *Sigh* It just won’t stop…

    If given a few years, most of the crap that begins on the West coast will ooze all of the way to the East coast and most certainly to the Deep South.

    But here in the DS we have lived for innumerable decades with, and I suppose we will eternally endure, a pox that some of us refer to as the Black Death. Those infected by it are everywhere, raping and murdering, drunk and yelling about inequities, buying, selling and using all manner of pharmaceuticals, popping out kids like they are food stamps, spreading STDs, robbing and stealing, embracing insanity and insane rages and shooting and killing each other over anything.

    I won’t be here to watch the merging of the illegals with the mighty forces of the Black Death but I know that it will be grand. Two like minded giants who contribute nothing to life except violence and millions of mouths to feed, going at it with unmitigated rage for as long as it is possible to keep swinging. And then, there are all of the other psychotic hoards that exist beyond the boundaries and purview of the illegals and the Black Death. Should make for an interesting future.

    Early in the morning, as Jesus was on his way back to the city, he was hungry. Seeing a fig tree by the road, he went up to it but found nothing on it except leaves. Then he said to it, “May you never bear fruit again!” Immediately the tree withered. Matthew 21:18-19

    BTW, if you haven’t already watched the series, The Chosen, I highly recommend.
