Fantastic, bike or car?
I'm in a patrol unit now, but I've considered becoming a Motor. The prevalent hearing loss scares me though. I can't wear the kind of ear protection in uniform that I can in my personal helmet (...gotta hear the radio). Plus, I ride in full leather when on my personal bike. The CHP's Motor uniforms don't have the protection that I'm used to. I know of one officer who went down on his BMW bike and slid on his gun. That's the only thing that saved his hip.

PorkPie: What work do you do Realist? Your posts always intrigue me. Something logical I expect...

I have a cousin who is a Highway Patrolman Motorcycle division in Arizona. We were talking recently and i forget exactly how many miles he said he had in the seat, but it well over a million.
The miles add up. I live in a car. I can't even imagine how many miles I have in this damn Crown Victoria. LOL!

Not a myth, the US ranks as the most giving country in the world. Some regions are much more giving than others, but overall, it is a very generous country.
That I can agree with, but I think that's because of what we give to other countries rather than our own domestic charities.

andrew2k: Its interesting you mention both California and New York, because both states are experiencing a shrinking GPD whereas Texas's own continue to grow. In fact at its current rate of growth Texas's economy will
I can see it eventually tipping the scales in favor of another state, but at the current time, our bustling California economy reigns supreme. There are more people in the CITY of Los Angeles than there are in most states within the union.

TedG:
Realist: Yes I'm American, and you give us FAR too much credit. Most people don't give to charities here, and most people are just looking to save a buck wherever they can. Businesses move out of California (the state I'm in) in favor of Nevada, Arizona and Texas for the tax benefits all of the time.
And I live in Nevada and Tesla is building a 6 billion dollar plant here because California decided not to give them a decent tax break. Thank you California.
Yep! Prime example. I don't blame them either.

PorkPie: California happens to be my favourite place on earth. The State that has everything. Hard for me to comment on the real philanthropy of America, it is certainly a truth or myth widely believed in Europe.
In terms of the sheer economic scale, California is the king state of the Union (..right up there with New York). It is the state that has everything, hence why I'll never leave the state even though I despise some of the politics, the nannying, etc. It's nice to be able to ride ATV's in the desert at 8am, snowboard/ski on a mountain at 2pm, and arrive at a beautiful beach before sunset. The positives of this state definitely outweigh the negatives... ..and yeah, the SF to LA drive is a beautiful one.
