  • The devil lives in Mexico but he plays in California California is the Mecca of immorality, greed and disconnect. People don’t see each other. Narcissism permeates the air, choking out the will to see beyond oneself. Everywhere you go you see people who cannot express love or even hatred, only obliviousness. Few are those who can sense the world around them. The traffic is proof of the pollution of boredom in its residents. Everyone is bored and looking for anything and any reason to flood the freeways just to express hatred for their own pollution. No one genuinely smiles. They smile to blend in and not reveal their lack of empathy. The egos are so inflated most don’t realize that there’s possibly someone better The devil lives in Mexico but he plays in California

  • My wife and I left San Diego after selling our house. Best thing we've done. We moved to Arizona where EVERYTHING is cheaper. On average, gas at the pumps is a dollar cheaper per gallon, housing is about half what it is in CA for the same size house, and politically, AZ is more our speed. Financially and politically, we made a good choice for us!

  • Of course all of this is done on purpose and without putting many things to vote by the citizens I believe allot of these changes are right down illegal. Politicians are not put in to place to benefit their own pockets and yet it's going on and nobody in other governmental departments are stepping in. These politicians want all these business to break so THEY can take over in those business ventures.

You have to have high density real estate and mass transit. Poor leadership and corruption is killing the US. It is in fast decline.

  • The Democrats are responsible for what this video is explaining, anything they touch gets ruined and worst of all they have no shame, the one good thing is the population is going down ,there are to many people here and there are to many homeless here, why do illegal aliens get more help than the homeless, something is very wrong in California, its the politicians, the problem is we are a one party state,something needs to change.

Our housing prices are being driven up, and even my personal suburb is getting an influx of people because “it’s so cheap here”. It’s not fair on us, and we’ll soon be driven out because of other people’s greed

  • It isn't a "national" issue. It is a California Issue. Remarks and thinking like 3:10 - 3:37 is part of California's problem. Progress isn't a bad thing, but uncontrolled liberalism is just as bad as uncontrolled greed. Both ultimately lead to self-destruction.

  • CNBC, let me give you some advice from someone that's worked around the country. The left CANNOT run any type of government without skimming money from paid taxes, bribing the poor, mass illegal immigration for cheap labor and votes, paying their friends and cheating on elections by "mail in voting" ( I don't mean absentee ballots and if you don't know the difference you're and idiot or a a lying criminal). You should see that the left doesn't give a siit about those "KIDS IN CAGES" that we heard YOU scream about when Trump used those facilities (that Obama and biden built). The left is raising taxes, crime is exploding, Cuomo giving 16k to illegal immigrants, Why the hel* wouldn't the working class citizen leave? So when CNBC comes out with a story that people and businesses in NY and CA are leaving, it kinda makes you guys look like idiots.
