I know most letters you get are from kids. So let me start by saying there is no toy that I need.
But there is something I want for Christmas not for myself but for my state. Most Popular

What does California really need? Were a rich place with nearly 40 million residents, which should be more than enough people. Except that its not.
(Excerpt) Read more at sfchronicle.com ...
All we read about here in California that there is no housing, overwhelming numbers of homeless, another drought beginning, over crowded highways, a need to cut green house gas emissions, so we really need 2 million more Californians?
They need two million more bodies in the illegal alien occupying army just incase the uppity American citizens stage an uprising.
1. First we tell them they must abort their babies because shut up.
2. Then we tell them they must import millions of third-world primitives because they aren’t having enough babies.
Didn’t proofread your excerpt, did ya?
In one breath CA libs complain that there aren’t Latino immigrants.
In the next they complain about the insane CA traffic.
That was strange. I blame the SF Chronicle.
Houses which sell are valued at 500k-1 million which would sell for 100k-200k in the heartland are a sign that you're too crowded already. Adding more people will just cause the US citizens you're worried about leaving to flee faster.
There is a dangerously low level of traffic in la and san francisco. They desperately need to double the volume of cars especially with unlicensed and uninsured drivers who enjoy kicking back a drink or two at the bar before going home. If they get caught or in a wreck, they can just change their name from Hose-A to Hose-B
I wonder what he thinks of the story (featured here a few months ago) that compared and starkly contrasted the woman who rose from being a janitor at Xerox in Rochester, NY back in the 1970s to CEO level today with an illegal immigrant woman and single mother who works as a janitor at Apple in San Francisco?
Ef'n liars. CA is quickly becoming a land of wealthy people who demand low wage labor servants.
California needs more immigrants like Custer needed more Indians.
“....as long as they don’t live near us.”
Actually, the excerpt made as much sense as the article so nothing lost.
Who said aught about Californians? Sounds like they want more illegals so that there can be more Kate Steinles.
This guy must be hitting the eggnog.
Some of what he’s talking about, regarding skilled workers, college grads, doctors, etc. are problems in most places in America, not just California.
There are some public policy questions which could be explored, such as, why the heck is housing so expensive in California? Part of it is due to exclusionary zoning and a NIMBY attitude in many parts of the state. Part of it is due to high construction costs, complying with strict environmental regulations. Part of it is real estate speculation and bidding up the price of housing by foreign buyers.
But when you add it all up, regarding housing, it all comes back to supply and demand, because the growth of the housing supply is not keeping pace with population growth. Which touches on other issues such as NIMBY zoning preventing housing from being built.
California has some serious problems. But it’s hard to see how more immigration, legal or otherwise, is somehow the silver bullet solution to issues such as this writer raises.
I predict California will see the largest exodus of whites in 2018. Heading to Arizona, Oregon (not much better), etc., but LEAVING THE SANCTUARY STATE that is very soon to become a Venezuelan SH*THOLE.
Like a hole in the head.
“so we really need 2 million more Californians? “
We have plenty of Californians here in Colorado we’ll send you. You just need a supply of skinny jeans, ear plugs and nose rings.
