…REMEMBER WHY YOU LEFT. Because if you don’t, you will probably be pointedly reminded by the native inhabitants of your new states*. And if you have the supreme idiocy to still own a Green Party membership card… SHRED** IT BEFORE YOU LEAVE CALIFORNIA. Better safe than sorry, boychik.
*There is actually some polling that suggests that outward migration from Blue states does not actually cause the ensuing… enBlueination? Azuring? – of Red ones, or at least not to the extent feared by Red state inhabitants. Not that this is going to stop the Red state natives from keeping an eye on Blue state immigrants for a while. Just in case.
**Normally I’d say ‘burn it’ – but after forty years of environmental activism, California’s so dry that one misplaced match could burn down half the state. No sense taking chances.
