California: OFFICIALLY America’s First Third-World State

Third World” is now an anachronistic geographical term of the old Cold War. But after 1989, “Third World” was reinvented from a political noun into an adjective to mean more than just Asian, African, and Latin American nations nonaligned with either the West or the Soviet bloc.

Rather, the current modifier “Third World” has come to transcend geography, politics, and ethnicity. It simply denotes poor failed states all over the globe of all races and religions.

Third World symptomologies are predictably corrupt government, unequal or nonexistent applicability of the law, two rather than three classes, and the return of medieval diseases. Third World nations suffer from high taxes and poor social services, premodern infrastructure and utilities, poor transportation, tribalism, gangs, and lack of security.

Another chief characteristic of a Third World society is the official denial of all of the above, and a vindictive, almost hysterical state response to anyone who points out those obvious tragedies. Another is massive out-migration. Residents prefer almost any country other than their own. Think Somalia, Venezuela, Cuba, Libya, or Guatemala....

California is definitely not 3rd world, just drive across the border to Tijuana if you disagree. But they share more similarities than I would have imagined.

Dem Party in California has become like the old PRI in Mexico. That is, they hold an unaccountable hold on political power, and will maintain it through any means necessary. Who care if CA "voters" do not like it, who needs them? After all, the illegals will vote in local elections, and the combination of illegals with driver's licenses and motor-voter will insure plenty of illegals will vote State and National elections as well. Makes sense for the Cali politicians to pander to this rising voter base.

Not even Manila has so much shit on the sidewalk, despite being a city of ~30 million. Trust me.

Lol. Trust you? You are the one who said imports and exports of goods to China are only 0.65% of GDP. When in fact in 2018 it was 3.2% of GDP. Couldn't even admit you were wrong. Why should anyone trust you?

The dude who is totally mischaracterizing what I said say, "Why should anyone trust you?" The dude who is a total TDS troll for the Libtarded 'Resistance' on here says, "Why should anyone trust you?"

Guess what percentage of our GDP Chinese imports AND exports are? .65% <-- and no, that period is not a typo. It is POINT SIX FIVE PERCENT.

Whoop-da-fuck-doo!

We are talking about goods, not goods & services. Pay attention. (scroll up)


That's what you said.

Which part is a mischaracterization?

Look who is paying the most in the MAGA Trump/Rep/Con tax scam world.
How does a third world State does a third world pay so much in taxes.
Texas & Florida are probably ecstatic & stupid about how much they pay.

"California is one of about 14 "donor states" where residents pay far more in federal taxes than they get back in federal aid and contracts."

Yeah. That's called 'progressive taxation'. Aren't libtards all for that? And it is one of the reasons why the California middle class have fled the state, too.

My theory of immigration: Open borders mass immigration will end when the country is a worse place to live compared to all the other countries whose inhabitants can immigrate.

Result: A country that doesn't defend its borders will become the worst country in which to live.

On the contrary, skilled restaurant entrepreneurs marketing to coprophiliacs have hit on a goldmine. And then there is the "Block that punt!" crowd as well.

Why do you live in South Beach? I lived there 15 years ago, Portside building. Great outdoor pool/jacuzzi, gyms and aptmt w/ view of bay bridge for just a little over $1500. Farmers market just got started and the ferry bldg area, south beach circle and giants stadium area just got developed. There was even an all American guy whose very old parents had a part time aptmt there and he threw parties at the pool. There were pretty American women to boot in the bldg and one hot Australian chick who was laying out in the sun by the pool every day and never lost her intense tan. After a little over 5 years it was time to get out, congestion had taken over, you couldn't get out of the garage due to gridlock, shit and homeless started appearing on the sidewalks and a mix of more wealthy but ugly older immigrants and ugly tech hipsters replaced the hot white collar girls and even the hot travel nurses and the old and a little nutty (but always great for a talk) all American security guard had left (replaced by Mexicans who didn't give a shit like he did). I occasionally go back down there for oysters booze and view at waterbar but south beach has long ago started its journey to become a shit hole neighborhood, no matter what the house prices are. Still probably on average one of the better hoods in SF, few good ones left.

True article. Voting for corrupt democrats has consequences. There are maybe a handful livable hoods in SF left besides its natural beauty. I'll be leaving within the next few years, it's leftoid demise is unstoppable and accelerating. Still pays a good tech salary though.

CA is slowly turning into a FAGS and HOBOS state. Government and liberals running around promoting "LGBT+ friendly _" fill in the blank everything. homelessness through the roof. mideval diseases everywhere.

Los Angeles and San Francisco are turning into shit holes. It's frustrating, because there are too fucking many liberals who want it this way, they don't give a fuck how they are ruining a society. Our government broke a promise to families and all Americans here. I'm pissed off, fucking Mayor better get fucking recalled, that fucking asshole.

IF you don’t feed them, they can’t produce shit! Simple!
Anyone who has ever dealt with a feral cat situation knows that feeding them is making the problem much much worse. They’ll breed then, and eventually the mange will set in. Pretty soon you have scabby naked cats giving you the evil eye, and six month old kittens dragging swollen bellies with more kittens.
Oh and shit everywhere.
Same same!

Is it as bad as it is in CA? I imagine in winter all bums somehow migrate over to LA/SF since it's not cold here ever.

Unlimited, indiscriminate, compassionate immigration will resolve this problem. It is a problem of negative emotions, which must be stamped out of the Great Socialist Paradise.

Pretty much on par from what I've seen. Maybe because it's summer.
