11/6    Does anyone know why most of the coastal counties are anti prop 8
        and most of the inland counties are for prop 8?
        \_ Because people who live near the coast tend to be more wealthy
           and worldly, while people stuck inland tend to be landlocked
           \_ ^hick^yokel
           \_ racist! eh, yokelist!
           \_ Um, you did see that 70% blacks voted yes on 8? Not even
              Christians voted yes on it at that high of a rate.
              \_ Blacks have a tendency to exhibit hick-like behavior.
                 \_ racist
        \_ The big cities are coastal.  Urban centers tend to be more lefty.
           Besides, if you were to guess where gay people lived, wouldn't SF
           and LA be high up on your list?
           \_ No, just SF. LA's only gay spot is N Hollywood, which is
              nothing compared to SF. As for the rest like Orange County,
              it's very much a non-religious Republican stronghold with
              lots of people believing in family values.
              \_ It's WEST Hollywood. North Hollywood is a rough area in
                 the valley. No self-respeting gay man would be caught dead
                 \_ At that point, his location probably wouldn't be up to him.
                  \_ Congratulations, you get the joke
              \_ "family values" in the OC include ignoring your children,
                 cheating on your spouse, divorcing, and having abortions in
                 other parts of CA so as to avoid running into someone you
                 know at the clinic. Fuck OC.
                 \_ I've heard so much about the OC. I've seen it in
                    Desperate Housewives. But tell us more about the OC,
                    I'd like to hear from someone who actually experienced it
                    \_ Got a car? No? Don't bother.
                    \_ I'd like to hear from someone who actually experienced

8/12    Thanks for destroying the world's finest public University! (The Economist)
        \_ Why not raise tuition? At private universities, students generate
           revenue. Students should not be seen as an expense. UC has
           been a tremendous bargain for most of its existence. It's time
           to raise tuition to match the perceived quality of the

2/16    California is truly f'd for sure this time.  Can we find another pair
        of stupid radio DJs to start a drive to recall Arnold?
        \_ It will only help if we get a governor with a spine, and get rid of
           the incompetent legislature.
           \_ How do you expect that we will get a decent ledge?  With the 2/3rd

10/9    What's the point of treating animals nicely and then kill them
        for consumption at the end?
        \_ Because some people care about not causing suffering.  Just
           because they are going to be food doesn't mean they need to
           live painful, miserable lives until then.
           \_ So how is the new CA prop going to affect prices at

7/9     Now we know what the definition of "rich" is:  $150K/yr/household
        \_ Only $150K, why you poor poor thing.
        \_ The GOP has no function in CA, except as obstructionists.
           \_ You mean like all those Republican unions that got all of

6/22    Who Ruined California Public Schools?
        Is it true that CA is 42nd in school spending? By what measure?
        \_ Oh yes, blame it on Prop 13. Why do you hate tax cuts?
        \_ No, it's a simple lie.  CA spending has been well outpacing
           inflation, and enrollment has actually declined significantly.

6/17    When I first came to California many years ago my advisor invited
        me to his house and gave me an advice that I never really thought
        about until recently. It was dead simple, and had nothing to do
        with what I was studying-- if you ever buy houses in California,
        DON'T SELL THEM. Keep them around, because in time, property tax
        will be so low that it'll take an act of stupidity to sell them. As

6/1     question for MOTD Armchair Economists, are home prices in CA
        artificially high because of old people homeowners and Proposition 13?
        are rents artificially high because property value is so high?
        are rents really artificially skewed in the Bay Area because land
        is more precious than gold, Prop 13, rent control and what the hell
        throw in all powerful fabulous and fabulously wealthy gay couples?
