    What does California have to offer the "fly over" states"

    I had a salad with dinner tonight. On my salad, I sprinkled some California Almonds. They were good. Other than Almonds, what does California have to offer the rest of us that make us willing to put up with it? Jerry Garcia is out of the picture now, and I can't honestly come up with much that we couldn't get a better deal on somewhere else....

    Sourdough bread and big trees.

    And they accept a lot of the undesirables from other states, like from Ohio.

    Wine (but Texas has wines just as good)

    Blondes (Is Clorex home office in Ca.???)

    But, in all humbleness, California is not Texas.


    And the tax structure ain't that bad in Texas compared to Californa.

    Our cows produce better cheese because they're happier than the cows in that other state in the frigid midwest.

    We're the home of Trader Joe's stores

    If you're a Democrat, we'll give you a whopping 55 blue-state electoral votes

    We're one of the first states to ban smoking inside restaurants

    California navel oranges!

    We're willing to let you put us down because we have more year-round sunshine than you.


    Just to name a few.............

    Most, if not all, the rest of your salad likely came from California as well.

    An Oregonian was riding his MTB through the Ochoco National Forest when he came upon a Texan and a Californian sitting at a campfire, having a drink and shooting the breeze. Introductions were made and the Oregonian was invited to join the others. The Texan pulled a half gallon bottle of Tequila (every thing's bigger in Texas) out of his backpack, took a drink, tossed the bottle high in the air, drew his .45 Colt Peacemaker from his El Paso Saddlery holster and shot the tequila bottle before it hit the ground. "Jeez!" cried the Californian, "that was a full bottle". "Don't worry, son" drawled the Texan "we've got a lot of that where I come from".

    Not to be outdone, the Californian went to his pack and got a bottle of Robert Mondavi Pinot Grigio (1987). He opened the wine with one of those fancy, chrome plated, two pronged corkscrews and set the bottle aside to "breathe" for a bit. He then got out two hard plastic boxes with padlocks on them and unlocked them both. From the larger box, he pulled out a Glock 17 and unlocked and removed the state mandated trigger-lock. From the smaller box, he retrieved a box of 9mm ammunition (115gr, semi-jacketed hollow point, +p), loaded 10 rounds into a post-ban, politically correct magazine, inserted the mag and racked the slide. He picked up the wine, brushed his sun-bleached blond hair out of his eyes, took a drink, tossed the bottle high into the air, picked up his Glock and emptied the *** in the direction of the bottle. He hit it twice. "Yee Haw" cried the Texan. "That's pretty good shootin' for a beach boy but why waste all that wine"? "No biggie", said the Californian. "We've got millions of gallons of that where I come from".

    "Hmmm" said the Oregonian as he pulled a cold bottle of Cinder Cone Red Ale from his Camelback. The webfoot opened the bottle with his Surly Tugnut chain tensioner, tipped it back and drained the whole 12 oz. in one gulp. He then stood, threw the bottle high in the air, unzipped the pocket of his REI Epic MTB shorts. drew his legally carried Smith & Wesson model 38 (Airweight Bodyguard), shot the Californian twice in the chest and once in the head and caught the bottle before it hit the ground. "Don't you think that's a little excessive?" asked the Texan. To which the Oregonian replied; "we've got a lot of those around here but I can get a nickel back on the bottle".
