RE: SIX NEW STATES?
Central California would be the most depressing State in the Union. Low wages, no water, illegal immigrants, no English, and hotter than Hades.

Sounds a lot like Mississippi.

Mississippi has a water shortage? And illegal immigrants?

Not necessarily a water shortage, but illegal immigrants are everywhere. Especially around the larger population centers (Jackson, Memphis) and along the coast.

At most California should be made two states but since both would be Democrat strongholds, and PR is a Democrat stronghold; none of them will be admitted as a state till they can find a new state that would add offsetting Republican Senators.

Is that like some latter-day "Slave State/Free State" thing?

Pretty much have to get past both Houses and that's going to be near impossible.

Yeah, man, I know how it works. That's why I made the comparison.

Won't happen but I would love to see California break up into three states. Jefferson, and North & South Cal. . The Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico would be another addition that should be made.

As one unified state, or as two states?

Prefer two. But I'd take one.

I was trying to write into my post a comment about how Mississippi would probably be a better place to live than Central California, but I felt that was a little too down on Mississippi.

Central California would be an awful, awful place to live. I have a close friend in Fresno who works for the University. Outside of some fantastic side trips up into the mountains, the whole area is hot, waterless, a bit dangerous, remote, and all in all a relatively unpleasant place to live with few redeeming qualities.

Like I said, except for the waterless part you could be describing the Mississippi delta. Flat as a pancake and hotter than hell in the summer. The only redeeming feature is the duck hunting in the winter.
