California Dreamin’ No More: “Diversity is Our Strength” Part III

My-oh-my, the former state of California is really racking up the honors lately. Let’s recap: First, the great, diversity-enhanced, multicultural county of “Los Angelenos” earns notoriety for hosting a third-world outbreak of hepatitis A caused by its homeless population defecating in the streets; second, the counties of Fresno, Kings, Tulare and Kern become infamous as particularly nasty hotspots of the great White suicide epidemic plaguing the working-class of this formerly great nation; and now, to top it all off, the former paradise of California gets ranked as the absolute worst state in the union in terms of the quality of life it offers its citizens. This means that when it comes to quality of life, the Golden State now comes in a whopping 50th place out of 50 total states in America, worse than even the shithole state of New Jersey and the frozen tundra of Alaska. Which is why we should obviously bring in more immigrants and amnesty the ones already here!

California has worst ‘quality of life’ in US, study says

Gregg Re, Christopher Carbone | Fox News

Awards season is in full swing in California, and the Golden State just took home a booby prize of its own.

California ranks dead last among U.S. states in quality of life, according to a study by U.S. News, ranking behind New Jersey (49th) and Indiana (48th).

The ignominious honor reflects California’s low marks in the sub-categories of environmental quality and social engagement. The latter category measures voting participation and community bonds.

Californians scored poorly in part because they’re simply insufferable, U.S. News suggested.

“In addition to a healthy environment, a person’s quality of life is largely a result of their interactions with those around them,” the magazine wrote in a blurb accompanying the results.

One way to measure quality life is whether residents can even afford to have a roof over their heads, and by that standard, California is failing.

A 2017 Harvard University report said that one-third of renters in the Los Angeles area are “severely rent burdened,” meaning they spend at least half their income on housing. The median rent for a one-bedroom apartment in Los Angeles County has increased 67%, according to Zillow’s Rent Index, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Homelessness has surged a stunning 75 percent in the last six years, the Los Angeles Times reports, and there are now at least 55,000 homeless people in the county. . .

It’s all such a shame. I’ve been lots of places in the world, and my favorite place is still the California coast. There’s just nothing like it in the world, not even the in the Mediterranean. The problem is immigration and communist politics continue to stratify the state’s population to the point where there is almost no middle class anymore. It’s quickly becoming a state for the elite and the destitute. Prior to moving away, I knew people in their 40’s, 50’s and 60’s who had to live with roommates just to survive. Housing easily consumes 40%-50% of one’s salary. If you can’t live near your work, huge sacrifices must be made or your quality of life suffers terribly. A friend found a decent job that was two hours away… Read more »

Mexicans are doing fine. They take their SSI checks back to Mexico and live like kings on $671 a month. Americans don’t have that option.

Average 2br monthly rentals in SF start at $3200., and that doesn’t guaranty off-street parking. The SF region, from Big Sur northward, is fantastic on many levels (though not budgeting), including its wild beauty being truly engaged almost exclusively by whites, from sailing to parasailing to snorkling. But the influx of latinos and particularly asians has put pressure on housing. National and state public lands cannot be used for housing development, and there are many gorgeous ones in proximity to SF, and LA. The nagging question is, were all these asian immigrants needed, with them now 33% of SF’s pop. (whites are 48%), and most arrived since 1965? My neighbors there have said that the white pop has stayed even while the asian pop grew. Asians filled tech jobs that… Read more »

Not sure that Asians outscored whites to the extent that’s implied. David Duke states that the top 70% scoring high school graduates are white non Jews, but are under represented in our top colleges, he cited Harvard and MIT as having admission rates under 30%. There was a scandal at MIT about 12 years ago when it was found out that a black woman in charge of admissions was throwing out the white kids applications. The gov. is also paying money for colleges to admit “minorities” over whites and race based admissions is still the rule. If there is any doubt that whites are intentionally being dispossessed recall Disney co. firing 500 IT workers so they could bring in third world replacements under Obama and H1-B visas. Our kids are… Read more »

You may be correct on the admissions front concerning outscoring on admission tests. Stanford’s admission specs: http://facts.stanford.edu/academics/freshmen-class-profile . Based on the footnotes, high school averages must be in top 10% for 95% of the applicants. But the bigger issue is how much negroids and latinos are favored in admissions over others, outside of CA, from this NYT article written with a white-hating slant (no surprise there considering its owners): https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/30/opinion/white-students-unfair-advantage-in-admissions.html , which implies a 310-point SAT advantage over whites (“450” – “140” pts.). To your point however, is this quote from it: “In California, where race-based affirmative action was eliminated in 1996, admission at the University of California at Berkeley is 42 percent Asian.” Asians are 15% of CA’s population. Excluding all other non-whites, they are 24% and whites are… Read more »

I must counter my favorable comments about SF somewhat, based on this article by someone who actually lives there now:

What will happen when California can’t raise taxes enough to stay fiscally viable? Will the White people of that beautiful state wake up then? Any Californians care to answer?

A 9% sales tax rate in Sausalito, and 9.5% state income tax rate (on middle class), are not realistic for a state that wants to be competitive. A political escape can be achieved in Sac by broadly adopting another state’s entire funding and tax structure. It’s a civil-nationalist stopgap and falls woefully short of a white reconquest. If CA were to adopt the entire set of legislative statutes and tax structure of Arizona, Nevada or another nearby state with sound fiscal and regulatory policies, and replace the entire current mess including the union, pension and generous workmens comp laws, it may save itself financially. However there are logistical differences with other states in that CA has enormous state-level natural resources including the beaches to protect, tremendous farming and fresh-water management… Read more »

“If CA were to adopt the entire set of legislative statutes and tax structure of Arizona, Nevada or another nearby state with sound fiscal and regulatory policies, and replace the entire current mess including the union, pension and generous workmens comp laws, it may save itself financially.”

Seems to me that having it continue its current course towards total failure is a good thing! Let the better quality Whites flee to a state in a more White-friendly area to regroup, breed, and reconquer in the future.

I’ve heard this argument, don’t buy it. Whites worked too hard taming and building up CA to leave to non-whites to run and eventually own exclusively (outside of tony enclaves), until whites out-breed the brown/yellow horde elsewhere. The limited border control at Tijuana and Mexicali would end, under the La Raza philosophy. CA exports tremendous amounts of fresh food to other US states, and that production would drop as white ranchers and planters are displaced through affirmative action or seized outright as in SA. I mentioned Silicon Valley startups and the natural wonders which show signs of neglect and vandalism some places already. Reconquest is best, but how would that work when the politics of the CA wealthy is largely liberal and its middle class has fled?

The problem is Federal tyranny. I went to all White schools in the 1960s South. The 2d Reconstruction destroyed our White separation with Federal guns and Federal laws to achieve forced amalgamation.

Asians are falsely promoted as having a higher intelligence. Nothing is further from the truth. Cut them off from White technology and they will slide back down. It’s easy to do well when somebody gives you the answers. Those people don’t have their own magnificent learning institutions

Mega churches, universities and corporations bring Asians over here by the 10s of thousands.

You can’t even yell “get off my lawn!” anymore since the latinos don’t know English.
