      I haven’t seen anyone collecting signatures to put Calexit on the ballot, but then I haven’t been to Whole Foods lately.

      Not happening for sure….you think all of the illegals that are there want to live in Mexifornia?
      They’d be climbing over the Sierra Nevadas and trekking across the Mojave to get out.
