Actually the quality where Grads and I live in Norcal is ten times better than it was 20 years ago. So much better that scientists and meteorologists are saying that it's the reason that we no longer have the two week stretches of the valley tule fog that used plague us in December and January. If there are no fires going on the air quality is great here. But I digress. Grads the climate right now in Texas, Arizona and Florida is also really good but it doesn't cost a shitload of money to live in those places. And two of them have oceans.

Now I'm going to hop on my Harley with the non-approved download. missing cat and modified pipes and ride to the store wearing a short sleeve shirt with a legally carried 9MM on my hip. Don't believe everything you read about California. Norcal and places east are a different animal.

Wait til Gov Newsom takes over the power companies. That will be a shit show to rival the streets of San Francisco. But Grads and his type are correct, CA is just a wonderful place. And they need to stay right there.

democrat ran state. Yes the weather is great but the government makes you pay for it so they can live as they do. I cannot wait to get out of Demofornia. Not the state I grew up in for 60 years. Tax the poor to feed the rich.

Exhorbant taxation
Massive government regulation
Insane forced taxpayer social programs
Socialistic government
Union/government collusion
Government pension plans

The list goes on and on and on.

That's why it's so expensive to live here

Sad part is you reach the income max of about 10.75% at 47K adjusted. Criminal.

14 years to permit a 340 home development in Orange County outside Yorba Linda and still in litigation.

No wonder it will cost a cool million per lot and over 2 million a house when people can finally buy.

Yes but a low property tax rate.
And why should hard working citizens that save for a down payment and commit to purchasing a home to protect their families be penalized with high property taxes?

Tax OCD is a problem. Seek help please

Is that what they call "Metered development" for heavily populated areas?:D Kinda like metered traffic light used to control the flow of peeps wanting to get on heavily congested freeway. IMO If it's not approved within 14 years it probably shouldn't be built, something just ain't right about it. o_Oo_O But If your talking about Esperanza, I thought it was proposed in 2012 and I'm fine with large lot developments like that being built if that's where people want to live. It's the zero lot line single and multi-family home developments that cram 7-24 units per acre or more that overwhelm areas with over population and traffic that suck.

Yes sir. Everything is relative.

Lots of high paying jobs in Havazoo, right? lol

Wanna live somewhere else where the housing is cheaper? Guess what? The wages are less as well.

84 and sunny here in So Cal today. :cool:
So does this mean everybody in California is making $250,000 a year plus? LOL
I know on RDP that’s just the base starting salary for you Ballers in California.:D

You serious? You and all your liberal friends are the reason "it costs so much to live in CA"

Your votes allow your libtard politicians to have a super majority in Sacramento and spend money like they're water from a fire hose.

You're paying for millions and millions of illegal aliens and their medical care, schooling and free everything

Look in the mirror genius

Sucks to be them.
What's your power situation like in Mexico? Oh wait, you didn't follow through on your political campaign promise to move there. LOL... but really though, you are being a little bit too high and mighty about your Roseville energy park. If they have an emergency shut down or accident, I suppose you will be drawing power from the surrounding grid?

Whoever the fuckstick was that decided to raise the felony theft threshold to $950 is the one that put the final nail in the coffin. Tweakers, criminals, meth heads, and the homeless have zero reason to not steal, because if it's under 950 bucks they just get a summons that they will ignore. Business owners have to raise prices to combat the built in losses, and it's only going to get worse.

Almost every single "homeless person" or tweaker that you see only wants 20 bucks for their next hit, and they will steal whatever they have to to get that hit. I see it in every one of the shopping centers that we manage or maintain, and its getting exponentially worse.

"C'mon YZ man, don't be taking shots at my community, That's just mean.":D
Roseville Electric is part of Northern California Power Agency which is a 16 utility co-op that shares and provides generation power between its members, so receiving power elsewhere already happens and isn't an issue if Energy Park goes down or PG&E cuts power for PSPS.
You might want to provide better management/maintenance service if you have homeless tweakers at every one of your low rent shopping centers. :D I don't recall ever seeing any homeless peeps hanging out at any of Roseville's shopping centers or surrounding Placer county shopping centers I've frequented.

Not everyone owns a home in California, just 55.3% in 2018. Besides that, your answer doesn't account for $3,500/month rent for a 400 SF studio apartment.

Texas property taxes, which everyone in California likes to mention in these conversations, are roughly 1.8% of home value. If someone earning $47,000 lives in the $199,900 median value home in this state and receives the 20% homestead exemption, property taxes are 6.1% of his income.

It's also $2,186 less than his counterpart in California pays in income tax. Next we can discuss fuel taxes, insurance, registration fees, property taxes, and the several other methods California uses to separate the poor bastard making just $47K from his money.

$47,000 is minmum wage in California, not the median like Texas.:D
You're missing the point. A post above mine said that $47K AGI is where the maximum 10.75% state income tax kicks in. So, yeah, someone making that paltry sum, your minimum wage joke, is being shafted for almost $5,000 by California. Yuk it up.
