California Into Three States

Postby dutchmintcruiser » Thu Jun 14, 2018 10:46 am

I see the pros and cons at the surface level. Not sure how I confident I am about how they will execute their plans to truly "better our infrastructure and education".

Also saw a map of the proposed boundaries. Don't know how I feel about that either.

The rural states will end up looking like their counterparts in the south and midwest.
They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

Wonder if the counties got to vote which new state they were going to be a part of.

I thought only congress could decide statehood.

Then there’s the water issue and 4 more unnecessary politicians to waste money on.

Bad plan. California would end up with four Democratic Senators and two Republican Senators.
Well, obviously we have giant butterflies in CA. They's climbin' in your windows, They's snatchin' your people up, tryin' to steal 'em. So y'all need to hide your kids, hide your stars, and hide your coaches cause they're grabin' everybody out here.

Meh. I wouldn't have to change my stationery, you guys get Fontana and the two Cal Polys stay in the same state. Although I guess they'll be called Northern California State Polytechnic University - SLO and Pomona. And the University of Southern California won't be in Southern California. Yeah. Just a little harebrained.

And the University of California won't be in California. Is Kinko's behind this or something?

I might vote for it they called Northern Cal "Cali". We get rid of the lame T-shirts and they get a hella name. Win-win.

No, really. Who drew out this map?

Great point on the UCs. And yes... Northern Cal can take "Cali" with them.

So let's see.. California gets Lakers, Clippers, Dodgers, Rams and Chargers... wonder who the LA Angels of Anaheim will associate themselves with?

"Southern California" would be a state comprised of a pair of prosperous counties supporting an assortment of not-so-prosperous counties.

here's a map of a county-by-county look at poverty in California.

No one really thinks this is serious. One other aspect. The new CA has the most people with the least amount of water.

The major cities in each CA are; San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego. CA would gain Democratic senators. It's doubtful the current congress would approve this even if it is allowed by the Constitution.
