Hire Pennsylvanians instead of illegal slave labor. These employers are greedy cons who hate the American worker. They're saying everything the slave owners did.

You'll have to grow and pick your own soon. Our predecessors did it so there is no reason you cannot.

No problem in California to grow fruit & vegetables. What are you going to do, chew grass and eat dirt?

Are you an idiot? Crops can be grown in every state, and although there are seasonal issues, there is a wonderful invention called a jar. It should also be noted that the People's Republik of Kalifornia could suffer another drought which is probably going to happen. I was kinda hoping that the last one would last indefinitely. Nothing like watching thirsty Marxists fight over water.

Labor shortage because farmers don't want to pay a good wage.

Actually my wife and I grow many different varieties of vegetables, herbs , etc. We can and jar everything from July-October and live fine. We never ever buy frozen veggies so Kalifornia can sink into the ocean and my wife and I wouldn't give a F--k!

In fact, we'd celebrate. Millions of dead Marxists, illegals, America-haters......a great day.

And if I could help it along I would.

California is blessed with an abundance of natural resources. That's why their economy hasn't tanked already. They'd like to think their idiotic politicians have something to do with it but that's not the case. If they had half a brain they would be building desalination plants for their next drought but they'd rather spend their money protecting illegal aliens and a mans right to use the ladies room. They'll be in a world of hurt real soon.

California is the 6th largest economy in the World and a premire tourst destination. I don't think the stakeholders in California care what the opinion of a Boot-Licking blood sucking anti-American neo-Nazis sympathizer believe about their communities.

Thanks, if these posters from other states would do some research instead of shooting from the hip. They're quick to jump all over California, without any provocation just jealousy and hate. I mean, I don't have anything against Wyoming, Pa. etc..just some of the peeps are in a state of illusion.

PRK,(otherwise known as California) is f--ked up. Thousands of unnecessary regulations, illegal immigrants importing their criminals and drugs while being patted on the back by your idiot Governor, communist breeding grounds like Berkeley, dim-witted movie star hypocrites who can't separate fact from fiction, and on and on.

If you didn't have Hollywood and Silicon Valley, your state would be almost entirely agricultural, and a lot more conservative and there wouldn't be such a mass gathering of leftist lunatics running the show. But I digress,

Please seceded from our union. You will not be missed.

Point is, they do have Hollywood and Silicon Valley and agriculture and the 6th largest economy in the world with more billionaires than just about any country.

And wages for the working class families are pretty impressive base on tjeir median income in comparison to the typical red Republican legislated states

All that is quite irrelevant in your personal daily life of survival. Issues and causes beyond your personal control. You should be concerned and plan for the ominous and impending doom of the Yellowstone eruption. Since Wyoming is smack dab in the middle of it.

Then California should be able to survive by themselves.....right? That is, until federal assistance checks stop arriving. You're number 5 in welfare recipients and growing, and the influx from the boarder is going to continue hurting California for the foreseeable future so long as the welcome mat is rolled out for them. Point is, California isn't needed for America to survive and prosper. And when its gone, we will no longer have democrats ruining the rest of the country with their socialist ideas because they won't win anymore federal elections without California's 55 electoral votes.

So, for the movement that wants California to leave the union I say, GO FOR IT!
You have my support.
