    • I like the OREGON coast — especially Cannon Beach where I own some property on 15 acres. Might build a house there and move permanently to enjoy that coastal beauty. California is getting way too crowded.

      When I was a kid in the 1970’s .. things were tolerable, but already you saw some undesirable elements creeping in. Now, it’s gotten past the point of no return.

  4. Dear “proud Republican”, Im a REAL independent….THAT statement that you made about ” liberals” was the most ignorantest thing that I have heard all week. Read a book, get a real understanding, do SOMETHING constructive in society. Its people like you that keep society seperated because of your ignorance…..

    • Hey Proud independent. You might do some reading, too … like a dictionary? .. Where you can learn how to spell SEPARATED correctly!
