Seriously, stop doing that Rob...

We have enough transplanted California fruits as it is... don't encourage any more.

For those interested..

We have guns! Lots and lots of guns!
And Mexicans!
and Hurricanes!
Humidity!
Mosquitos the size of Rohde Island!
And GWBush is coming back to Texas in January.

Y'all stay away now!

Oh, and FIRST!

I'm a Californian (not transplanted). More the nut variety as opposed to the fruits (or flakes - we make up a breakfast cereal)

You make Texas sound great!

We like guns. Lots and lots of guns.
We've got plenty of Mexicans ourselves.
We don't have Hurricanes, but we do have earthquakes. Hurricanes you can see coming and get out of the way... sounds like a good thing.
Humidity... I can live with it.
Mosquitoes the size of Rhode Island? Have ya seen Rhode Island? MOST mosquitoes are bigger than that.

GWBush returning... OK, now Texas doesn't sound so good. I think I'll stay here.

I'm talking Austin not Houston or San Antonio.

On a personal note; would my Swiss made precision "22 long" extreme range target rifle be a problem? Whites of their eyes? My ass. I can tell if they shave and parted their hair and take care of either for them.

It was ninety effing three effing de effing degrees yesterday. Busted bunches of century plus records by a long shot. The warmists will crow but it was actually caused by an offshore surface temperature extreme minimum.

Santa Rosa Valley where this gem is located ain't all that different from Austin weatherwise 'ceptin' winter plains storms and hopes of rain between May and September.

I'd be interested in seeing what that $1.5M bathroom looks like. Solid gold bath fixtures?

This is a NC-17 website. The distinguishing fixtures can only be shown on Akubi's blog.

Now this $7.5 million 5 bedroom house on .17 acre has some *really* expensive NSFW bathrooms.

Yep. Why do you think I've been bad mouthing Ventura County? We have earthquakes, taxes, depression. The horror.

If any of you Calis decide to move east please write back home and tell whomever you know that it svx, mmkay?

In related news, California certain to face 7.0+ Richter scale earthquake over next 30 years. Don't forget to pay your insurance... lucky for me, Mommy and Daddy expect me to contribute $0 towards living expenses. It's all good!

Well, gotta run... just borrowed Mommy's credit card, off to charge $200 worth of wheatgrass. Need to stave off those withdrawal symptoms.

So Ireland sucks too. I read something similar earlier today.
Oh well, I guess I'll just stick around here and annoy people like Lou Minatti.
I love the multiple meanings of the word "decoupling".

The only thing you could do that would truly annoy me is to name me as a defendant in a frivolous lawsuit. Which has happened.

Disagreements are fun. If we all agreed on everything, it would be about as exciting as a well-known housing bubble blog.

"The Perks of Public Office"

From LA Times Editors: http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/la-ed-tickets14apr14,0,3458560.story

"The tradeoff of public sector work has generally amounted to this: lousy pay, good benefits. And the benefits side of that equation has long been construed to mean a nice pension, reasonable work hours and the like. Now, thanks to the Orange County Register, we've come to learn of another, in this case hidden, perk of public work: immunity from parking tickets, toll charges and even traffic violations."

Somehow I am not suprised.

Lou, maybe it only looks that way from DALLAS... [ducks]

Seriously, I haven't even visited HBB in a long time precisely because of the echo chamber effect. Unfortunately now even Calculated Risk is suffering.

"W", yeah, that and the Nuñez/Snoble tiff are on my radar today. First Sterling Hills, then MTA then perks. Good enough? Thanks for being patient.
