When we read the news this morning that a California lawmaker is attempting to break the state in two (for the umpteenth time), we couldn't help but laugh ... and then dream.
How great would it be if we didn't have SoCal conservatives weighing us down? At least we know gay marriage would be legal. But in all seriousness, it got us thinking. What would we not miss about our military-loving, suburban-living, air-polluting friends in the south?
1. Minutemen: While we understand that Southern California has a visceral reaction to illegal immigration -- or to legal immigration for that matter -- this isn't the American Revolution, and this isn't Arizona. Having a bunch of tattletales with guns keep "a watch out" on the border feels more threatening than illegal immigration itself.
