California is dead last in quality of life in the US.
    #25031252 - 03/01/18 11:19 AM (2 years, 5 months ago)

Here are the rankings as of 2018.

https://www.usnews.com/news/best-states/rankings

https://media.beam.usnews.com/72/92/aae484e24a139c33fd2658193683/171206-best-states-overall-rankings-2018.pdf

Now I know I'm focusing on one aspect and that in other aspcts other states are worse. But it's the most populous and economically important state in the US.

Dead last in quality of life and close to the bottom in several other aspects such as infrastructure, fiscality, affordability...

I've always said that California is a unicorn state filed with contradicting statistics (most millionaires, yet poorest state)

How do you fix this shit???

Now even a lot of minimum wage jobs are being lost due to automation. A McDonalds in my city has tablets you order on now instead of speaking to a person. Grocery stores half the time don't have checkers or baggers and you scan and bag yourself. Once they really perfect driverless cars a whole lot of other people will be out of a job as well.

Poorest state? California isn't close to the poorest state

It's not about liberals. California is goegraphically split in half with liberals or conservatives.

It's a management issue

California is pretty dope. Theres actually a fucking shit ton of jobs, at least where I'm at. Being unemployed in my area means you don't want to be employed. Any level of experience you have and almost any career, a position is available. Definitely an expensive place, but the well paying jobs tend to balance that out. My place is $1800 a month rent and between me and girlfriend we have never had trouble paying the bills, and neither of us have particularly well-paying careers in proportion to the area.

The people I know here who are struggling heavily and/or homeless are all lazy akira_akuma types who don't work just cuz they don't want to. California gets a bad rap. Almost a shining utopia if you know what you're doing. Most people here just don't lol. Califonia is so poverty stricken because no other state is filled with more lazy, socialist, millennial "artist" types who contribute nothing to society and get fucked. Not out of brutality of the living conditions of the state, but because of their own incompetence.

They need to get on Australia's level:
Quote:

Who wants to be a millionaire? Forget the game show and the song titles – the average Australian household now has more than a million dollars in net wealth. The trouble is we are becoming increasingly cash poor.

While the value of our homes has risen to the point where the average household can boast millionaire status – on paper at least – Deloitte Access Economists has found 37 per cent of households are concerned about their ability to pay their bills and household costs. It expects this number to increase to 40 per cent within two years.



Quote:

Despite the fact that consumers are looking for cheaper or better-value groceries, supermarkets are experiencing a new form of competition from an increase in eating out or takeaway food – ordered via a plethora of new apps.

This has become the new luxury, particularly for younger consumers. It has become the trade-off between saving money and saving time – one that has been enabled by technology and the rise of the smartphone.

The smartphone has moved from the luxury to the necessity column – 84 per cent of Australians have one.

Meanwhile, catered food rose 3.3 per cent in 2017 – faster than supermarket growth.



Quote:

Entertainment subscription services is another area that is moving from luxury to essential.

Deloitte found that of the people who subscribe to services such as Netflix and Spotify, if faced with budgetary pressure, more people would first cut back on a car, clothing, holiday or groceries than these subscription services.

You wish you were cute enough :wink:.


California is like near_dylan said; the massive amount of migrants and people coming in out of state in tandem with the succesful people leaving the state - i can see this, but still - that puts us around in the lower 2/3rds, not last by any means.

finally, i have lived in Colorado, Washington, Idaho, and California - and California is the best, easily.  As in it’s sunny in Feburary, and warm out - you can smoke joints walking down the street, most people are chill, lots of amazing music.  Sure, there are tons of downsides that most people overlook and shouldn’t, but thats just kinda life here.  I dont overlook it, actually Ive been thinking about trying to spend more time volunteering at a community education center lately or social support centers in SF to help out.


--------------------
My Daily Stack: Rhodiola Rosea, True Calm, Ginkgo Biloba, Fresh Bee Pollen, Lions Mane/Reishi/Chaga/Cordyceps Complex, Kanna, Full Spectrum Multivitamin, Full Spectrum Omega Fatty Acids, Zyflamend Full Body Support, Turmeric and Black Pepper Complex, Ashwaghanda, Skullcap, Magnolia Bark, NAC, Beta-Carotene, Potassium and Magnesium.

Go ahead and PM me or ask about it, as well as microdosing LSD.

Hey now, just because is the most boring city of the Northern hemisphere isn't the reason I hate California.

I don't hate California, I've never been. It's just that I feel as if it could be doing so much better. I has a lot of potential, it's just not living up to it.

I lived in California for a few years and it is great, especially NorCal. The traffic situation finally got to me though, there's too many people and too many cars. If you're trying to drive anywhere remotely close to a city be ready to sit in traffic jams. A lot of people do it everyday to and from work. I can't  and won't do it. The sprawl and traffic of California make me sad about the world. The Sierra Nevada has inspired me like no other place. It's a mind fuck.

Much less due to the state itself and how it's governed and more so due to the overwhelming population of dumbfucks that live here. Never have I been to a place with stupider people. Never have I seen heads wedged so far up their own asses.

Any list that puts a state like Minnesota or Iowa as the best place to live is a fucking joke. I saw that & stopped reading. :lol:
