The hopeless feeling I get living in California. Here is my story of living here.
I've lived in San Diego for about 3 months now. I never wanted to move here, but I got laid off in August and was out of work for a few months and took the job offer I got here as it was by far the best opportunity I had gotten offered to me. I sucked it up and moved out here.

I pay out the arse for apartment rent. You aren't getting anything nice for less than $2000 a month. I pay $2700. My apartment garage is full of exotic luxury cars like Ferraris and Lambos but as soon as I leave my parking garage or apartment I am greeted with a sidewalk full of homeless people sleeping in tents, sleeping bags, and tarps. Drug addicts, homeless, and panhandlers as far as the eye can see. Streets smell like piss. You see human shite everywhere and needles. All they do is fight, litter and make a huge mess. I would never walk outside at night. It's funny how liberals whine about income inequality yet California is the most unequal state I have seen.

It is so crowded everywhere. You have to drive quite a far ways out just to get some space. Even going to the grocery store at 8am on a Saturday you will run into crowds. Traffic is constantly a problem, at least I live close enough to work where I don't have to deal with it every day. But even on weekends there is traffic. I drove up to Anaheim last week to go to an Angels game and it took me damn near 3 hours to go the 85 miles to get there. There's just too many people here.

You see the effects of open border policies and unfettered immigration every day. Many places you go you aren't going to see many white people. I went to the mall today to buy some clothes and I think I was the only white person there. I saw one other white person in the long checkout line at Banana Republic. The line was 40+ people deep at 10am. You have to wonder how long it is in the afternoon. Every cashier was speaking spanish to the spanish customers. Not only are these places filled with hispanics, but they have to take their entire extended family and 10 kids along with them which makes it even more crowded. Strollers everywhere and kids running around everywhere and hispanic moms with baby bumps and no ring on their finger. I wonder who is paying for this. Some may call this racist but I feel like I am living in another country. If you dropped me at this mall with a blindfold I would have thought I was in Mexico.

You can't go anywhere without someone asking you for money. There are signs infront of stores warning you that you may be approached by panhandlers inside. I've been panhandled at the most random places. Not just at intersections and freeway exit ramps. But I have people come up to me in the grocery store asking for $0.50 so they can buy a bag of chips, or approach me in the parking lot of a grocery store or Target or Wal Mart asking for money. When I go to my gym the parking lot is down the street so I am almost always hit up for money when walking to and from the gym. I drive a convertible and when my top is down for some reason beggars think this gives them free reign to come up to me and ask for money.

After the mall I go to put gas in my tank at $4.40 a gallon. Thanks to a ridiculous state gas tax and regulations that drive up gas prices here far north of most other places in the US, it costs $44 to put 10 gallons of gas in my tank. But wait, there's more! 3 times I have been approached when filling up my tank by panhandlers. But they aren't asking for money - they have gas cans with them and ask me to put gas in their gas cans. frick these people.

Everything is more expensive here. And taxes. Sales tax is high, my income tax is ridiculous. Gas tax I already mentioned, and they want to make it higher. Taxes for shite like plastic bags at the grocery store. And I feel like I get nothing in return for these exorbitant taxes I have to pay.

Living near the beach is fine I guess, if you like dealing with the ridiculous beach traffic, lack of parking, littered beaches and massive crowds in order to be able to go to the beach.

Politics is why I feel hopeless. There is no way to change any of this shite. The state is so far left that democrats have unopposed rule. Taxes will only go one direction, up. The undesirable elements will continue to be catered to, the tax dollars will continue to go to worthless shit, and more and more dumb legislation will be passed. Nothing but more democrats will be elected statewide that will continue to push more left wing agendas. My vote is worthless and is probably cancelled out by illegals voting anyway. And I live in one of the supposed more conservative areas of the state. You have to wonder how bad it is in SF or LA.

I am going to put my time in here, ride out my contract, and then get the hell out of here. It's not going to get any better. And despite what people say, living here really isn't that great. Different strokes for different folks I guess, but it's not worth the high taxes, high cost of living, constant crowds, homeless infestation, panhandlers and beggars everywhere, constant traffic, and far left agenda politics.

I was in Bakersfield recently and gas was $2.79 a gallon.

So I'm not sure it was so much a gas tax as local San Diego stations overcharging for gas.

I hear you & understand. What you are describing is why I left Orange County in 2006. Five years was enough for me and I can't help feeling I got in on the last few good years in CA. Gas began skyrocketing around that time along with the population....which went from bad to worse. I also hear you about beach traffic. Until you live in a beach city, you will never understand. It is a paradise September - May and then 3 long months of hell.

Re: The hopeless feeling I get living in California. Here is my story of living here.
Last time I was in Orange County was 2015.
I saw so many women asking for money. They were sitting or standing in parking lot entrance/exits with signs declaring their need for help. I was in a kind of shock at first.

When I stopped for gas there was usually a few panhandlers with children with them or waiting in the car for their mom. Or dad.
I think they were living in the cars or getting money for motel rooms.

You couldn't sit at an outside bench or table and have coffee without somebody coming around asking for change. What was most different was all the foot traffic.
I mean, it's always a traffic jam with cars but there are thousands of people on the streets, day and night. All colors, cultures and lots and lots of kids and babies walking on the streets. Everywhere.

I won't go back. I can't go back there. I WAS BORN there and most of my relatives live there.
It's not my California. It used to be a good place to live.
That is gone.
The last time I went, it hurt to see it.

Re: The hopeless feeling I get living in California. Here is my story of living here.
We are moving out of here in a few more years, maybe less. Every word you said is true. I live in the Inland Empire (somewhere). Our teens can't find work, bilingual is "preferred". 3 interviews for a fast food restaurant, experience and resume needed. My significant other and I were in a Chipotle recently. The homeless drug addicts are getting bolder. Walked up to EVERY patron inside asking for money. Illegals hanging out at Home Depot undercutting licensed contractors, and yes TAKING JOBS AMERICANS want. Gangs leaving their imprint everywhere, be it a random bizarre murder or suddenly you discover one of your own loved ones are now doing methamphetamine. Yeah. Saw gas here today 3.99 9/10. And the higher grade gas is over 4.00. People out driving, ALL DAMNED DAY, not sure where they all came from the past 2 years. My significant other works 1.5 hours away, and sometimes it takes him 3 hours to get home. Last week we went out to the poppy reserve. Sat in traffic there too. People all over the place. Everywhere. My God. It IS depressing. Such a beautiful state geographically. So many beautiful places to visit. But yes, we are signing off in California real soon. Headed East somewhere.
It'd be nice if the flag next to my name represents the country I actually inhabit.

Re: The hopeless feeling I get living in California. Here is my story of living here.
There is a federal penitentiary just north of me, about 30 mins away. They release prisoners early. Fill up the vans, drive them to the town next door and dump them all in parking lots near residential areas.

My son left California almost 2 years ago. Rented a room from a dude whose diet consisted of beer, followed by beer. Guy was nuts, tried strangling my son one night. He decided he couldn't make it here and had enough. My son had a friend in Montana, and was offered help and a place to stay up there. In less than 2 days on his road trip to MT, he was hired OVER THE PHONE with a full time job with benefits in MT. He AND his girlfriend. Hired over the phone. After struggling here for so long. Got himself a HOUSE to rent for the same price he paid to rent just a ROOM here. Beautiful up there. Cold as hell in the winter. Brutal.

Since then, we've been planning to leave and have told our other offspring to do the same.

I have to agree with you, its not all about the sunshine and waves at the beach. I have been in Calif all my life and I see nothing but crap year by year and it continues to go down hill. It would be nice if my wife/or myself wasn't approached by constant panhandlers when she/I goes to the grocery store, Walmart, target, anywhere and everywhere you go! Get your local drugs at a taco bell! come one people close the borders and keep the crap on your own side of the wall! Seriously Mr. Newsome needs to take a serious look at his state and not worry about why he's visiting South America to push his anti boarder legislation to a group of migrants that have no business being here(these are not calif voters, do you even care what CALIF people think of you and your policies). Didn't we/they vote you in office to take care of Calif not the migrants? As soon as my kids get out of the house we are outta here!

its a shame, a shame, a sham

I've lived in San Diego for about 3 months now. I never wanted to move here, but I got laid off in August and was out of work for a few months and took the job offer I got here as it was by far the best opportunity I had gotten offered to me. I sucked it up and moved out here.
