    Bingo. The Curley Effect on a State level.

    Curley Effect in California

    James Michael Curley, a four-time mayor of Boston, used wasteful redistribution to his poor Irish constituents and incendiary rhetoric to encourage richer citizens to emigrate from Boston, thereby shaping the electorate in his favor. Boston as a consequence stagnated, but Curley kept winning elections.

    But for anything to be saved, any respite from the starvational rot of socialism, we MUST regroup and separate from the Dumbo-cruddy Socialists. Because, comrade, anyone who has read history knows what they are - Marxists, and Stalinists.

    That is what's happening. The OC Republicans, who by Middle-America standards would be LIBERALS...are ordering Y'all-Haul and riding out to Idaho, Texas, Colorado. And Montana.

    Bringing their mush-moderate confusion with them. Voting in more DumbocRats who pretend to be conservative on the campaign trail. More Leftism disguised as wisdom. THE. SAME. SICKNESS they left behind.

    Until you get a critical mass...and there will be a stampede out.

    It won't take as long as California. California has nice weather most of the year. Colorado does not...Denver isn't Buffalo but when they get winter storms they REALLY get them.

    The draw for many was, unspoiled landscape and warm, friendly people. That is changing, with gridlock on the Interstates. The stoners' sensibilities will soon be reflected in public policy coming out of the State House...and that will be that. High taxes, Moar-Free-For-Me, and corruption and budget deficits, and there will be no more reason to live there than in Ill Annoy.

    It was called Orange County for a specific reason. The oranges are now grown east of Bakersfield.

    Democrats in congress are like having the Fox construct the hen house then installing the security system.

    With the price of an average home at $700,000 , very few young families can afford to live there. Or at least live there and have a middle class lifestyle.
    In many neighborhoods all the homes are filled with older middle aged people whose grown up children have already left. Silent neighborhoods where there are no children.

    At many schools most of the students are children of undocumented immigrants. Yes, even in many of the middle class neighborhoods.
    After school you'll see half the students heading to apartment complexes that constitute maybe 2 percent of the neighborhood. Yes, half the children are crammed into a tiny part of the neighborhood. Maybe 5 children and 3 adults will be crammed into a tiny 2-bedroom apartment.

    More of the houses have been changing into rentals.

    So the demographics have been changing. This changeover was inevitable.

    Also a lot of upper middle class female professionals in these neighborhoods voted for Hillary. Undocumented workers are the ones that clean their houses and mow their yards while they are away at work, and work for cheap. What would they do without them?

    I've seen Hispanic women at parks with their four children and one white child in the middle of the weekday. The woman was taking of the white child to be able to financially provide for her four other children.
    The other children were all completely different ages from the white child, so this had nothing to do with school friends.
    I also went to a high end shopping mall once (Fashion Island) where there was a white woman (obviously a trophy wife with some plastic surgery) strolling by with her chin up high, and behind her were two short little female Hispanic assistants, one carrying 5 of her shopping bags, and the other with the rich woman's two small white children in tow, holding their hands. It's obvious this wealthy white woman didn't want to be burdened by having to hold all her shopping bags or having to take care of her own children while she was out enjoying herself and shopping. It was comical and almost unbelievable to see.

    This type of thing is something I'd expect to see in wealthy neighborhoods in Mexico or Brazil, but now it has become the reality in OC, apparently.
