    I'm sure there are a few Americans in California. When people tell me they've seen America by visiting California I just laugh.

    It is a shame because California is a beautiful state.

    It use to be the Golden State when Conservatives were in charge. Now it leads the country in debt, worst schools and most poverty.

    Liberals screw up everything they touch.

    It’s like people thinking Bavaria is Germany.

    When it’s more like Austria.

    "In this day and age when we hear so much about people who do the wrong thing, it’s like a breath of fresh air to see someone do the right thing. Like New Mexico resident José Nuñez Romaniz.

    "At a time when coronavirus has put a huge damper on the economy, it would be like a dream come true for most people who would happen to stumble across a bag of cash containing $135,000, as Nuñez did.

    "But instead of carting the bag off, he turned the money over to the Albuquerque Police Department.

    "The young man went to a local ATM machine on May 3 to grab some cash so he could buy his grandfather some socks, according to local reports. When he arrived, he found a clear plastic bag of cash that had been left behind.



    "Though no one was around, Nuñez nevertheless called the Albuquerque Police Department after first dialing a 1-800 number on the ATM because, he said, it was the right thing to do."
    https://www.bizpacreview.com/2020/05...ear-atm-919131

    "Reporters asked Romaniz what he was thinking when he found the massive bag of cash.


    “In the back of my head, I was just thinking about my parents, especially my mom,” he said.


    “What she would do if I came home with the money and what she would do with her chancla (sandal) to hit me,” he continued, laughing. “I did the right thing and I know my parents are proud and my family is proud as well.”

    Although I live in Mexico, I recognize America needs young men like this.
