Honestly, It depends on the policy. One thing is true... the bay are is still a driving force in the machine here. But the state is a complicated place.

But I'll agree with you... Berkeley sucks. Seriously, +++++ that place.

 

The bay area  runs the democrat party and hence the state.  You are correct.

Okies arent hillbillies, totally different demographic.

And you are neglecting to mention the portagees, jews, the persians (most of whom in socal happen to also be jewish), armenians, the chinese, the vietnamese, the koreans, the salvadorans, the guatemalans, the anglo and dutch south africans, and too many others too mention.

Regardless, phuck Berkeley and Frisco.

No, they're all hillbillies now.

Hillbillies stay in the same place and same social class for generations.  Okies didnt.

Im not an okie btw.  My dads family was here long before them.  The okies were the laborers and nannies when my dad was a kid.

They were very upwardly mobile though.  The construction industry in the San Joaquin Valley and lots of Orange County is dominated by them and their descendents.  Most of my customers are okies, the late fifties and earlry sixties okies are still authentic, but they are the last of their breed, their kids are indistinguishable from any other white kid in the Valley.

I used to work with a guy born in Taft in about 1950. Grew up in a tent cabin next to an oilfield. By his accent you’d have thought his family had never left Oklahoma.

I doubt this makes any real difference is shopping/eating habits but at the very least if I lived in Berkeley I wouldn’t have to listen to spoiled ankle bitters begging their parents for candy in the checkout aisle.  So many parents just give in.

The Bay Area is child's play compared to LA in this day and age.

There will never be a day when I can't buy a candy bar in the front of a store in my California town. For what it's worth.

Like I said, Berkeley sucks. I think the real hippies have even been priced out of there. They're moving to Stockton

Two Oh Niiiiine!!!!

All the "real hippies" live up North or in the Sierra these days.

I was a student at U.C. Berkeley for a year. And I had no problems with stuff that was going in town than I would anyplace else. My day was never affected by anything the city council did or any other bluster for that matter. More headlines than anything else.

Edited again.  Too many good people to lump them in with SJSU filth.

*ducks smltwnrck

I don't think smltwn is a SJS guy. He seems like an alum of a school with no football team or out of state. #cldbwrong

Sound like trump voters. Thought you hated those people

They would be if the GOP hadn't told them to f*ck off in the 90s.

And I don't hate trump voters. Most of my family voted for him.

I almost guarantee I've been to more SJSU football games than you. 

But I didn't go there. No, the school where I went has a football team and will definitely be in the PAC before any team currently in the MWC.

Spartan with no vowels graduated from the Ag Extension in Davis.  They are UC, but Poly grads make more money.  Hence....   Poly greater than Davis

Sunday afternoon for this Poly Grad.

Mustangs outwork the Aggies.  Work hard, play hard.

Gotcha. I knew he couldn't be a CSU system guy b/c he writes several well worded mini novels on here per day, def'ly not a very csu type thing.

 I was going to guess UoP but then he said his school played football and that would be deemed worthy by pac 10,  so it could only be a few.
