  1. It just makes no sense to me that, given the political, cultural, and economic differences between SoCal (defined roughly as everything south of the Tehachapi Mountains) and the rest of the state, that the state of California should exist in its current form. What do y'all think? We wouldn't have to change the flag if we put two sparsely populated and culturally identical states like the Dakotas together, either.

    (Inspired by a post on the "Annoying Trends" thread.)

    P.S.: mods, is this considered political? Shunt it off to the Lobby if you think it is.
     
  2. What one run by Arnie the other by hmm Vin Diesal? Or Stallone?

    :D:D

    no. do you know how much of a hassle that it would be. changing all kinds of papers (drivers license, home, social security, addresses, ect...) it would just be a b*tch.
    whatever.

    Stallone: "California... Where you can freely shout Adrian"

    Diesal: "California... Yeah I live for this Sh*t"

    South California gets Arnold. North California gets Gray Davis.

    Eh, no. Nor Cal gets arnie because this is where most of his votes came from... Davis's hot spots were in Socal.

    Whoever did the dancing man loop really did a bang-up job of making it seamless.

    What makes you think my post was addressed to you?

    Fetch: Instead of splitting western states, maybe they should merge the eastern states.;)

    Sorry Mike, that's just BS. LA and San Diego were bastions of Arnold votes, thanks to John and Ken on KFI. NoCal is infested with namby-pamby liberal doo-doos.
