What happens in California needs to stay in California. Do not talk about flight club, could happen in CA and more California memes as the Regime readies to install Gavin Newsom as President!
laughing at how Europeans see the US.. It is surprising how Europeans, my family included, see the US as one country. They will name a city without a state and think you will immediately know where it is. Say Springfield - but every state has a springfield, so which state? they don't know. When you say that each state has a different speed limit they think you are joking. Very funny, took me years to get my folks to understand!
I was born in Pasadena in late '59 and was a kid in the 60s and a teen in the 70s. Other than the summer smog (containing lead, carbon monoxide, ozone, oxides of nitrogen, and unburned hydrocarbons, and I'm still here!), it was wonderful. Reagan was governor when I was a kid. We were prosperous and safe. I lived in the Bay Area as a young adult during the Joe Montana era. That was great too. DiFi was mayor, but she did surprisingly little damage to the then-beautiful city. Nowhere near as much as she did after her promotion to the Senate. Left Cali in '97 and never looked back. I now live in the freest state, with nice weather like California, and no smog. At least where I live.
