We all seem to have certain states that we don't want their people to move where we live. I know for us, it's Californians. What I'm wondering is, are the reasons we all don't want "those people from that state" to move next to us, the same reasons? I don't live in a highly populated area, but I don't live 50 miles from my nearest neighbor either. When people come to visit this area, they enjoy it and it is normal to hear people say they would like to live here. Then come the changes... We don't always have as strict of rules as their HOA did, and so they want to make it so Ted down the street can't park his camp trailer in his driveway, or they want to make it so Sally two blocks over can't have a rooster with her four hens. And "nobody" should have more than two dogs. Why is that antenna on your roof?!!! I can see it and it offends the beauty of the scenery that I moved here to enjoy! (Because I wan't to watch TV and that's where the guy installed it and I don't mind it there) Why is internet $50 a month! In California I only paid $20 and it was faster! (Because we don't live next to major connecting points as far as the internet goes and so it cost more to get the internet backhaul here, so it cost more per month - it's called economics) I can smell the manure from that farmers cows! We need to do something about that! (His family has raised cattle here decades before you showed up. That's the smell of money to him and his family. Why should he change because "you" showed up?) And on, and on, and on... For us, by and large, it's Californians that are this way. They move here because it's peaceful and a beautiful area of the country, and then want to change it so it feels like California. I -don't- get it. If you want it to be just like where you came from, then why not stay there? If you were miserable where you came from, there must have been a reason for it. Maybe it was all the uptight stupid rules and laws you left behind? Maybe try leaving them there and stop being... well... a Californian? Ok, I know that not all Californians are this way, but these are the people we joke about and the ones we avoid. What state is your "California"?
