1. Unwelcome guest in Arizona
2. Non Driving inbacile who comes to Az but never goes back home
3. Retard who uses turn lanes for passing cars on the right
4. That guy who thinks he has a cool car and doesn’t realize normal people thinks he is a “Fucktard.” Reckless driver that inspires you to get a bumper sticker that says “Go back to California”
Californicators began pouring into neighboring states in 1995. That was the year of “the big one.” If you live out West most likely you remember “the big one.” The Northridge earthquake was an earthquake that occurred on January 17, 1994, at 04:31 Pacific Standard Time in Reseda, a neighborhood in Los Angeles, California, lasting for about 10–20 seconds. The earthquake had a “strong” moment magnitude of 6.7, but the ground acceleration was one of the highest ever instrumentally recorded in an urban area in North America, measuring 1.7 g (16.7 m/s2)[with strong ground motion felt as far away as Las Vegas, Nevada, over 270 miles (435 km) from the epicenter. The death toll came to a total of 57 people, and there were over 8,700 injured. In addition, the earthquake caused an estimated $20 billion in damage, making it one of the costliest natural disasters in U.S. history
Earthquakes are such a daily occurrence in California, Steve Martin joked about them in his movie LA STORY. In the scene, he is at an outdoor cafe, (of which California seems to have an overabundance and introduced the concept to Denver and just about every big city in every Western state). Steve gets some laughs when the quake hits and his table keeps moving farther and farther away as he tries to reach for his espresso. The Northridge Quake in 1994 sacred the bejeeber’s out of these lily-livered Californians who began pouring into neighboring states like Arizona, New Mexico, (Santa Fe) and Denver, Colorado like water.
Besides Californians being unwanted house guests from hell who never leave, changing neighboring states into mini versions of California they brought with them bumper to bumper traffic. Or LA traffic as I call it. Fucktard’s who drive 20 mph in a 40 mph zone, use turn lanes or bike-paths for passing cars on the right. The guy/gal who thinks they have a cool car and doesn’t realize locals think they are a “Fucktard.” Reckless driver’s that inspire you to get a bumper sticker that says;
“Go back to California.”
If the Northridge Quake made these Californicators pour into neighboring Western states like water, the stalled economy, loss of jobs and high cost of living in California are making Californians once again pour into neighboring states. The cost of living and housing is sou exorbitant in California- they move to cheaper areas like Prescott, Az or Flagstaff, AZ where the cost of living is cheaper and proceed to turn these areas into mini-versions of California. I now see as many California license plates in Arizona as local Arizonan plates. Here’s the questions on most locals minds:
Why The @#$%! Can’t They Stay in California?

Dec 18, 2008 – During the last fiscal year, 135173 more people moved out of California than moved in from other states. Though just a drop in the bucket for a …
I just gave up,” said Grace Bryant, a former Glendora resident who fled to Texas after 18 months without consistent employment as a residential appraiser. “California is too much of a struggle.”Like Bryant, many of those who left California went to Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and Colorado.
The current spate of domestic out-migration began in 2005 after six years of continual domestic growth. The trend coincided with the developing housing bubble, which peaked in 2007 when median home values in Southern California reached $505,000.
“This was the epicenter of the housing meltdown,” said John Husing of Economics & Politics Inc., a regional economic research firm. “People started leaving California because of housing prices — particularly younger couples that just couldn’t afford to buy a house.”
But then the bubble burst and Californians were faced with a new crisis — joblessness.
There’s nothing here in Arizona that they don’t have in overabundance in California. Most of my longtime Arizonan friends are telling me the professionals are all leaving Arizona because there is such a lack of jobs for professionals and the one;s that have those jobs have been in them for 12-years. Oh, sure! Flagstaff is a college town so there are lots of bullshit minimum-wage fast-food jobs but that’s about it. So what’s the attraction for Californians?
Here’s the pattern I have seen in Flagstaff since 1990. Wealthy Californians who spent 30-years building up a business, retire and turn business over to their heirs. Within a year or two young Californian heir has run that business into the ground or sells it. They take the money, move to Sedona, Prescott, Flagstaff, Sante Fe, New Mexico and with the money they do three things:
1. Buy a Subaru Outback. It was once remarked by the great local outdoor writer Mary Sojourner that you could put a rock in the palm of your hand, close your eyes, spin around three-times and throw the rock in any direction and chances are- you would hit a Subaru Outback.
2. Open an artsy-fartsy gallery, eatery or coffee shop which closes after a few years when owners get bored living in Flagstaff.
3. Buy a second home which they spend the majority of their time commuting back and forth between California and Arizona.
With the stalled economy and exorbitant cost of living in California where studio apartments go for $1500 month and gas is $6-gallon, college tuition in California is so exorbitant that California students can come to NAU or other Arizona college and the out-of-state tuition is still cheaper than in-state California tuition. Here in Flagstaff, NAU college officials, who hosted huge tuition increases three-years back-to-back and chased local kids down the hill to state college in Tempe and Scottsdale, have figure this out. They started a new program called Western Undergraduate Exchange Program. (WUE). Students who are residents of WICHE states are eligible to request a reduced tuition rate of 150% of resident tuition at participating two- and four-year college programs outside of their home state. NAU officials have already signed up 2,000 California students to attend NAU beginning fall 2012. Begging the locals to once again ask the question:
Why The @#$%! Can’t They Stay in California?
The Vision of The Guidance Center here in Flagstaff, Arizona is to be a leader in the field of Behavioral Health yet instead it has been the leader in “boneheaded stunts.” Founded in 1969, The Guidance Center was supposed to be a
Community Mental Health Center that offered a full continuum of Behavioral Health programs and services for children, adolescents, adults and families. In the late 90′s, the Guidance Center was hijacked by wacko liberal nut jobs who emigrated to Flagstaff from California. Over the last dozen years, they have pulled their fair-share of dim-witted, boneheaded stunts which usually wind up on the front page of the local paper, The Daily Sun. The latest “boneheaded” stunt by the Guidance Center was the Streets to Housing Project. Basically, they were giving free apartments to homeless alcoholics with no retirement to stop drinking or even attend AA meetings. After a year, the group of 20 hopeless alcoholics in the program are all back on the street. What’s worse is, you know how “homeless” guys are. Word of mouth reached the homeless population down in Phoenix that, “Hey! The city of Flagstaff is giving away free apartments. The last year, hundreds of transients, homeless, alcoholics have been moving to Flagstaff overwhelming the social-service agencies that work with this population. The “wait- time” at the local Goodwill on Flagstaff’s East side for showers is three-hours as the line is out the door at 8:30 am when Goodwill opens. The local rescue mission which has facilities only to adequately house 12 men, are currently housing 45-guys. All because of the boneheaded stunt by these wacko nut job Californians. begging the city council to ponder in its last meeting:
Why are all these transients moving to Flagstaff?
Cali fornicators, worse than fornicators, never seem to take responsibility for their actions or the impact they have on those around them. These self-absorbed, arrogant, pushy, egotistical, wackjob liberals will practically sit on top of you in a crowded restaurant, park so close to your car you can’t open your doors. Have no compulsion about hanging out ion the grocery aisles to gossip and when you ask politely to get by give you a sneer. To Californians,it’s all about them. California is the center of the universe – no one else exists or if they do- we’re not quite as “important” as Californians.
The mere fact that they are from California- the rest of us are supposed to bow down and worship the ground they walk on. Most locals know what “Fucktards” Californians are and it’s laughable. Their sandals and white socks, their taking over a table at the local health food store every Tuesday for Spanish Class. Had Californicators had any real brains, they would be studying Chinese for as most of us, in the know realize, the Chinese are taking over the globe. Californians just “don;t get it.” Anyone who scoffs at their ridiculous, self-absorbed ways are ;labeled, “Haters.” Anyone who disagrees with their Californian liberal point of view are labeled “Haters.” Anyone not Californian is labeled “Haters.” Out West- Californians think they know what is best for everyone and they proceed to stamp their will on everyone not Californian whether we like it or not.
When Cali fornicators move into your town, almost certainty they try and take over the city council and pass ridiculous city ordinances like here i n Flagstaff prohibit owner ship of “pot belly pigs” as pets within the city limits. Here are some more ridiculous laws these Californicator legislators have installed in Flagstaff:
no skate devices
no bikes on sidewalks
no kite flying in city limits
Californians mostly have contempt for their fellow citizens. They don;t talk to people or enjoy meeting people because they believe; “I think the person will have the wrong political beliefs” or “the person will probably be a smoker” or “I bet the person won’t be a vegetarian, so I can’t talk to him” or “I doubt that this person will be educated or intelligent.”
John Carpenter was onto something in 1996 when he made the sequel, Escape From LA.
In the movie, they put a big fence around LA which was one big jail.
Not a bad idea except you would have to put a fence around the entire state. Locals in the state’s of Oregon and Washington have long had their running battle with Californicators. Oregon once posted a sign that read:
Welcome to visit.
Don’t plan on staying!
For years Oregon had advertising and a big push to keep people from moving there. It didn’t work; all the damn Californians moved up there after selling their ridiculously overpriced homes and raising Oregon real-estate prices to ridiculously overpriced amounts. That’s … what Californicators do!

Many Americans believe California is spreading Marxist Politics, Liberalism, Socialism, Paganism, Mormonism, Atheism and Trader Joe’s through out the country because California controls the mainstream media. Too many fruits and nuts according to most Americans which list California as the most “disliked” state in the union. Californians believe that every person that doesn’t live on the “Left-Coast is a backwards redneck which is apparently why they have no compulsion about pushing their will on other’s, their liberal agenda, their wacko politics. Fueled by the most powerful media machine in the world, California can take a non-issue or a non celebrity like Lindsay Lohan and make it one while looking the other way every time a Michael Jackson, or Whitney Houston dies tragically from self-induced drug overdose. Californians not only look the other way they actually make excuses for a Whitney Houston or Michael Jackson.
Why The @#$%! Can’t They Stay in California?
People’s reasons for moving away: CA is a wonderful place to visit, but completely unable to manage itself. completely messed up state, If you move because of scenery and weather, be ready for fire, flood and earthquake to ruin all that.
Interestingly enough, most of the Californicators are not even from from California, they’re transplants from New Jersey mostly, or New York. The majority moved out to California in the 1930′s when the movie companies moved from New York to California. Called population re-distribution. All the freaks and attitudes come from transplants who descended on California in search of their Holy Grail but end up burning out are now descending on neighboring states like Arizona. You can hear their stupid never ending pipe dreams,plans,sure things etc from their loud conversations in public places. One thing i noticed over the years is a wave cycle of transplants-like they would arrive then be gone within a year. This was as sure as the tide and never relenting. Imagine if in your home state you were bombarded constantly by people arriving and leaving and have them bore you with their fantasies/complaints/opinions of your state.
Now if all those unwelcome Californians would just go home maybe the traffic would ease up and Flagstaff would return to mellow paradise. Ain’t never gonna happen. I have heard rumors that there is talk about renaming the place: Flagstaff, California. Until then, it’s just Californication.
