California ex-pat’s Facebook page for those eyeing Texas move nears 16,000 followers

Marie Bailey and her husband used to live in Seal Beach, Calif., about 28 miles south of Los Angeles. But several years back, after years of talking about it, the couple left California and moved to Texas.

Now they live in a bigger house in the Dallas area, pay less money in taxes – and love their life in the Lone Star State.

“Everyone in California is nervous about taxes and prices,” Bailey told the Dallas Morning News last year. “We became much more calm when we came here. You are in a constant rat race in California to afford it.”

“Everyone in California is nervous about taxes and prices. … You are in a constant rat race in California to afford it.”

She added that politics was a factor for them as well.

“The standard in California, especially in Los Angeles, is very liberal,” she told the paper, “and we didn’t feel comfortable even sharing that we were libertarian.”

But those who joined Bailey recently on one of the Dallas-area bus tours she organizes seemed to put politics aside in favor of more bottom-line concerns.

“Politics isn’t that big a deal to me,” Tim Paone, 31, a software developer, told the Los Angeles Times. “The bigger thing [in California] is cost of living, how cramped it’s getting. We have a lot of friends who are considering moving out of L.A.”

“It’s a lot easier to get a house here,” Valentina Caceres, 28, a Navy veteran taking the tour with her husband, told the newspaper, “and you get a lot more.”

Bailey also launched a Facebook page where she tries to help other Californians looking to relocate to Texas. Her “Move to Texas From California!” page now has nearly 16,000 followers.

CHUCK DEVORE: WILL TEXAS FLIP BECAUSE OF BLUE STATE MIGRANTS? DON’T BET ON IT

Between 2007 and 2016, California lost 1 million residents to other states, with Texas being the No. 1 destination, according to the L.A. Times. In addition, more than half of California’s registered voters say they have considered leaving the state, according to a 2019 University of California Berkeley poll conducted for the Times.

The top reasons people have cited for leaving California are the cost of housing (71 percent of respondents); high taxes (58 percent); and California’s politics (46 percent), the Times reported, citing 2018 figures from the state Legislative Analyst’s Office.

CALIFORNIA EXODUS COULD LEAD TO STATE LOSING CONGRESSIONAL SEAT, CENSUS ESTIMATES FIND

Bailey told the Morning News last year that traffic gridlock, California’s homeless crisis and illegal immigration were other reasons why people leave the Golden State.

She added that most of the Californians she connects with don’t need convincing to come to Texas.

Bailey has received some backlash from some native Texans who fear that an influx of Californians will mean more liberals in their communities. But the Morning News noted that most of Bailey’s Facebook followers lean conservative.

“These people are going to move here either way,” Bailey told the Dallas newspaper. “I’m not convincing them to come here. I’m just helping them be smart about it.”

Wedding cancelled after groom cheats with stripper, bride’s sister demands she gets the wedding dress

Some people take hand-me-downs very seriously.

After getting cheated on right before her wedding, a woman decided to alter her unused wedding dress into something she could wear to other events in an attempt to take her power back. Unfortunately, she didn’t realize that her sister apparently had plans for the dress.

Posting under the name Aitaweddingdresscu, the former bride-to-be revealed that she was set to get married two months ago. Unfortunately, the event was called off when her fiancé cheated on her with a stripper at his bachelor party.

“I had this beautiful dress that cost me around two-thousand dollars (out of my pocket),” she wrote. “I had been very depressed since everything happened because I felt it was somehow my fault for not being sexy enough or not giving him what he wanted. So last weekend I decided to ‘take my power back’ and I began altering the dress. I have been sewing for 15 plus years so I know what I am doing. I cut it a bit, changed the color to something less wedding-y and after a week of work I had a beautiful gown that I could use for more stuff.”

Since the process was cathartic for the poster, she shared a picture of the results to Instagram. Unfortunately, she didn’t realize that someone else had plans for the dress.

“My sister hits me up and asks me if that was my old wedding dress and I told her yes,” the story continues. “She then called me and asked me why I had done this. I asked her why it was such a big deal. And she told me that I could have waited till after her wedding. I was so confused. Then she reminded me that when we were staying at the hotel where my wedding was supposed to happen, my mom and sister were there cheering me up and my sister said something along the lines of ‘oh well if you are not using it, I will.’ We all laughed so I thought it was a joke because it was never brought up again after. She just asked me once what material it was so I assumed she wanted something similar.”

The story ends with the author explaining that her mom says she understands both sister’s point of view, but she thinks the former bride-to-be could have waited a few more months to cut up the dress.

“Did your sister think about how awkward it would have made you feel to see her get married in the dress that was supposed to be yours,” asked one user.

“I think it’s pretty insensitive for your sister to expect to use your wedding dress,” elaborated another. “She needs to consider how painful it would probably be for you to sit at her wedding and watch her walk down the aisle in the dress you were supposed to wear for your wedding, which then turned into a terrible memory.”

“Why would anyone want to wear a loved one’s failed relationship and misery right in front of said loved one’s face is beyond me,” added another.

Another user had a practical question about the situation, asking, “Wait, her wedding is in 5 months and she hasn’t even asked you about the dress? What if it had needed altered or cleaned?”

North Carolina animal rescue posts brutally honest cat adoption ad: ‘She’s just a jerk’

Westlake Legal Group Worlds-worst-cat North Carolina animal rescue posts brutally honest cat adoption ad: 'She's just a jerk' Michael Hollan fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/north-carolina fox-news/lifestyle/pets fox news fnc/lifestyle fnc e897807b-343c-58bd-b251-bd1ea2ac91cd article

This seems … catty.

A truly unique animal adoption notice recently appeared on Facebook. While most posts like this try to be positive and cheerful, this particular one can only be described as brutally honest.

The Mitchell County Animal Rescue in North Carolina introduced social media to Perdita, who can apparently only be described as a “jerk.” That’s not a description coming from an upset user, that’s the official statement coming from the animal shelter.

According to the post, the rescue thought Perdita “was sick, turns out she’s just a jerk.”

Along with photos of the cat, the post states, “Meet Perdita, not for the faint of heart. LIKES: staring into your soul until you feel as if you may never be cheerful again; the song Cat Scratch Fever, the movie ‘Pet Cemetery’ (Church is her hero), jump scares (her specialty), lurking in dark corners, being queen of her domicile, fooling shelter staff into thinking she’s sick (vet agrees… she’s just a jerk).”

That impressive list of likes is followed by Perdita’s dislikes, which reportedly include, “the color pink, kittens (yuk they are so chipper), dogs, children, the Dixie Chicks, Disney movies, Christmas and last but NOT least…HUGS. She’s single and ready to be socially awkward with a socially awkward human who understands personal space.”

The Mitchell County Animal Rescue confirmed to Fox News that while the post has received plenty of attention, they haven’t gotten any offers to adopt the cat yet.

The post concludes by stating that Perdita is a free adoption, which seems fair, as no one should have to pay to live a jerk.

According to the post, she’s been identified as a jerk by a veterinarian, which seems pretty official.

Vet accidentally euthanized cat instead of giving it rabies vaccine, woman claims

A distraught cat owner is heartbroken after an alleged mistake at the vet’s office resulted in the pet’s death.

According to Houston-native Michelle Olson, the vet accidentally gave her cat euthanasia medicine instead of the rabies vaccine that was supposed to be administered. Despite realizing the mistake before the animal died, the veterinarian’s office could not save its life.

Olson says that she and her husband had picked up their cat, Sophie, and were on their way home when they received a call from the vet, ABC 13 reports. “It was the doctor herself calling saying, ‘Please get Sophie back here immediately, we gave her euthanasia instead of a rabies vaccine,’” she explained to the outlet.

“Every time I close my eyes, I see that look on her face and I just can’t get it out of my head,” Olsen told the outlet.

While Olsen and her husband were able to get the cat back to the vet, it was reportedly too late to reverse the effects.

“I immediately took her out of her cat carrier and I held her, talked to her, because I knew that was going to be the last thing she would remember,” Olson explained. “I knew she wasn’t going to come back at that point. I just knew it. She pretty much was dying in my arms.”

According to ABC 13, the animal hospital responsible for the incident would not comment on the situation at the advice of legal counsel.

“They’re very sorry, that’s all they can say really,” Olson said. “It was an accident, I get that, but it was an accident that should’ve never happened.”

Woman who photographed romantic proposal finds mystery couple after putting Internet on the case

A woman in the U.K. has identified the mystery couple whose engagement she photographed during a stroll with her family last week.

Charlene-Louise Johnstone first shared the photo to Facebook on Jan. 18, telling her followers that she spotted the then-unidentified couple at Cleave Hill in Gloucestershire earlier that day.

“Didn’t fancy running up to them and giving them the photo and intruding in their moment… so if anyone wants to help share see if we can find them as I’m sure they’d like the photo,” Johnstone wrote in the post, which soon went viral with over 17,000 shares to date.

“They were hugging and were emotional. She was wiping away tears and I’m pretty sure it was a ‘yes,’” she added, per SWNS.

The story soon took off, with some commenters offering to share the photo on their own social media accounts. And within days, the mystery lovebirds became aware of Johnstone’s picture.

On Monday, Johnstone explained in a follow-up post that the couple reached out after learning of her efforts — and they were absolutely delighted at the response their photo had generated.

“Just want to say a huge congratulations to this lovely couple on their engagement,” Johnstone posted to Facebook on Monday, along with a photo submitted to her by the bride- and groom-to-be.

They also told Johnstone that they preferred to remain anonymous for the time-being, but confirmed they were “over the moon with the photo I took, the reaction and all the lovely comments received,” she wrote.

“Love a happy ending,” Johnstone added.

Johnstone’s story also brings to mind a similar search effort that was launched in October 2018, after a photographer captured a stunning engagement on a far-off peak at Yosemite and enlisted the Internet’s help in identifying the couple.

Japanese fashion house accused of cultural appropriation for putting models in cornrow wigs: ‘Racist show!’

Critics didn’t care for this “hair”-brained idea.

Commes des Garçons, a Japanese fashion house, is being accused of cultural appropriation after sending models down the runway in wigs designed to look like cornrows.

The show took place on Friday at Paris Fashion Week and showcased several different male models, many of whom were white, strutting down the runway modeling the brand’s latest Homme Plus menswear collection. Nearly all of them were seen sporting what appeared to be ill-fitting cornrow wigs.

The criticism was swift on social media, with some deeming it a “racist” show, and others declaring that Commes des Garçons was “canceled.”

“I’m outraged and disgusted by your models’ choice of hairstyle knowing where it originated from. Where is the real representation?!?” one user wrote on Instagram.

“Cancel culture incoming y’all really messed up on this one, man,” another user said.

“They wanna make money off the culture but don’t wanna show love and respect to the people,” someone else commented.

“Racist show!” another simply wrote.

Others, still, appeared to be just as offended by the placement and quality of the lace-front wigs.

On Friday, Canadian fashion designer and model Tani also called out the brand in a Twitter post that has been liked more than 3,300 times.

“Lmaoooo why?!” she wrote.

Commes des Garçons has not publicly commented on the backlash, nor shared any photos from the show on its Instagram page as of Saturday afternoon. The fashion house, however, had once come under similar scrutiny in 2018, following accusations from fashion writer Marin Lerma that it had not hired a black model in the two decades prior.

That same year, Kim Kardashian also faced criticism for arriving at the 2018 MTV Movie and TV Awards with her hair in cornrows.

“It’s not cute to appropriate my culture,” one critic wrote on social media at the time. “Your privilege is really showing.”

Groom-to-be tells bride she’s being unreasonable for wanting ‘extravagant’ dress, asks internet if he’s being a jerk

Something tells us he’s not going to like the answer.

A groom-to-be recently took to Reddit to ask whether or not he was wrong for allegedly telling his fiancée that she shouldn’t buy the $950 wedding dress she wants, but rather a $50 knock-off.

The man, who posted under a throwaway account with the username “Josh8449,” began by explaining that he and his fiancée “Emma” were getting married in July, and had everything “pretty much sorted” as far as the actual ceremony goes.

WEDDING GUEST SLAMMED FOR ‘GROSS’ RESPONSE TO WEDDING INVITE

The one thing his bride-to-be hadn’t bought yet was a wedding dress.

Emma allegedly told him she was eyeing a gown that cost $950, as well as a $120 veil — a move Josh didn’t understand because the couple “[isn’t] the extravagant type at all.”

Josh said he was also a bit peeved because they had jointly saved $10,000 for the wedding, and the dress would put a dent in their leftover honeymoon fund.

“I’m not trying to get her to cheap out on her dress but she will literally wear it once, one dress for over $1000 is just insane that would fund our honeymoon,” the Redditor complained. (iStock)

“I’m not trying to get her to cheap out on her dress but she will literally wear it once, one dress for over $1000 is just insane that would fund our honeymoon,” Josh said.

Josh added that he was going to wear his dad’s old tuxedo to save money. And while he understood that Emma couldn’t wear her mother’s gown — “her and her mum both say the style hasn’t aged well [which] is fair” — he didn’t understand why she couldn’t find a cheaper, similar dress online.

“I had a quick google around at dresses online and there were so many! [A]nd so many just like the one Emma wants for like $50 to $100,” he said.

“I tried to show her some dresses I found on [the Wish app] and others … but she was having none of it.”

Emma also offered to pay for the dress out of her own money, and not their shared honeymoon fund, but Josh still wasn’t happy because “we [are] about to marry and our finances will be joined.” He also didn’t appreciate Emma’s mom offering to buy the dress.

The whole thing soon turned “nasty,” Josh said, adding that “Emma has been extremely cold to me” and acting like a “toddler.”

Josh claims Emma also questioned whether the two were too incompatible to marry, and went to stay with her parents.

Not surprisingly, the Reddit community largely agreed that, yes, Josh was wrong.

“Regardless of dress type, though, your reaction to her — calling her names and deciding you have veto power — is the real problem. You should be solving this issue together. If you can’t, maybe it’s not time to get married yet,” one user said.

“Most of the wedding guests would be arriving in more expensive attire, if $50-100 was her dress budget,” another wrote.

“Like seriously? Sorry… but your girlfriend deserves way better,” someone else claimed.

“If my fiancé called me a toddler for spending one grand of my own money on a reasonably-priced dress for our wedding, I’d be seriously reconsidering the marriage. That’s such childish behavior,” another said.

Josh later updated his original post, stating that Emma found it on Reddit, and that it was a “mistake” to air his grievances.

“Emma found this thread, it was a mistake to post here and [I’m] sorry I posted our problems on Reddit,” he said, adding the acronym “IATA,” which is an admission meaning “I am the a—h—.”

PETA calls out Conor McGregor, ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone over python jacket

It looks like PETA wants to enter the octagon with Conor McGregor and “Cowboy” Cerrone this weekend.

The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals called out the famous UFC fighters on Twitter after McGregor and competitor Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone had a friendly back-and-forth about the latter’s python jacket.

WEDDING GUEST SLAMMED FOR ‘GROSS’ RESPONSE TO INVITATION: ‘HOW TACKY CAN YOU GET?’

The exchange, which took place during a press conference with the two fighters before their upcoming fight Saturday, started with McGregor interrupting Cerrone to compliment his coat.

“That’s one hell of a coat, Donald, my God. I got to give credit where credit is due,” McGregor starts, before asking why kind of material it is.

“It’s python,” Cerrone answered. “I’m sure PETA might be here because I got rattlesnakes on and python.”

McGregor, who called PETA “shady,” responded that the group has “a warrant out for me as well.” It was a sentiment that proved to be true, as the animal rights organization quickly responded to McGregor’s statements on Twitter, slamming the fighters.

“Hi @TheNotoriousMMA and @CowboyCerrone!” the tweet read. “You’re right! We ARE here — to remind you that only COWARDS would brag about wearing an animal who was likely beaten & skinned alive. Why don’t you knock out your insecurities and only wear your OWN skin?”

In a graphic statement to Fox News, PETA UK Director Elisa Allen revealed the group would be going a step farther, and contacting each of the fighters to stop wearing animal skin.

“Cerrone and McGregor may be known for being tough guys in the Octagon, but the ultimate challenge for these fighters would be to watch PETA’s stomach-turning exposés, which show workers peeling snakes’ skin off while they’re still conscious. Pythons, who are taken from their jungle homes, are often nailed to trees and skinned alive so that their skins can be turned into coats, shoes, belts, and bags. Many of them suffer for hours or days as they slowly die. PETA will be writing to the pair with information and a simple request: be a fighting champ for animals and knock exotic skins out of your wardrobe,” the statement read.

Cerrone reportedly responded to the group’s criticism, seeming to egg them on further with a statement saying he would wear human skin, if legal.

PETA calls out Conor McGregor, ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone over python jacket

It looks like PETA wants to enter the octagon with Conor McGregor and “Cowboy” Cerrone this weekend.

The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals called out the famous UFC fighters on Twitter after McGregor and competitor Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone had a friendly back-and-forth about the latter’s python jacket.

WEDDING GUEST SLAMMED FOR ‘GROSS’ RESPONSE TO INVITATION: ‘HOW TACKY CAN YOU GET?’

The exchange, which took place during a press conference with the two fighters before their upcoming fight Saturday, started with McGregor interrupting Cerrone to compliment his coat.

“That’s one hell of a coat, Donald, my God. I got to give credit where credit is due,” McGregor starts, before asking why kind of material it is.

“It’s python,” Cerrone answered. “I’m sure PETA might be here because I got rattlesnakes on and python.”

McGregor, who called PETA “shady,” responded that the group has “a warrant out for me as well.” It was a sentiment that proved to be true, as the animal rights organization quickly responded to McGregor’s statements on Twitter, slamming the fighters.

“Hi @TheNotoriousMMA and @CowboyCerrone!” the tweet read. “You’re right! We ARE here — to remind you that only COWARDS would brag about wearing an animal who was likely beaten & skinned alive. Why don’t you knock out your insecurities and only wear your OWN skin?”

In a graphic statement to Fox News, PETA UK Director Elisa Allen revealed the group would be going a step farther, and contacting each of the fighters to stop wearing animal skin.

“Cerrone and McGregor may be known for being tough guys in the Octagon, but the ultimate challenge for these fighters would be to watch PETA’s stomach-turning exposés, which show workers peeling snakes’ skin off while they’re still conscious. Pythons, who are taken from their jungle homes, are often nailed to trees and skinned alive so that their skins can be turned into coats, shoes, belts, and bags. Many of them suffer for hours or days as they slowly die. PETA will be writing to the pair with information and a simple request: be a fighting champ for animals and knock exotic skins out of your wardrobe,” the statement read.

Cerrone reportedly responded to the group’s criticism, seeming to egg them on further with a statement saying he would wear human skin, if legal.

“Man, I guess if killing humans was legal I could probably wear a bad-ass human jacket,” Cerrone said, Hometown Life reported. “I got a white buffalo at home, PETA.

Blue Bell ice cream licker in Texas pleads guilty to criminal mischief

A Texas man pleaded guilty in court Thursday of licking a pint of Blue Bell ice cream in a viral video stunt before returning it to its shelf at a Walmart in Port Arthur, but he’s asking for a lighter punishment.

D’ Adrien Anderson, commonly known as “Dapper Don” on Facebook, uploaded a 20-second video of himself removing the tub of homemade vanilla ice cream from the freezer aisle of the store before opening and licking the dessert multiple times, and sticking his finger in it and then putting it back on the store shelf with the lid reattached.

The video, taken in August, has garnered more than 157,000 views. Anderson, 24, then purchased the ice cream and no charges were immediately filed against him.

Later, the prankster, who bragged that he “trolled all Southeast Texas” with the stunt, was charged with criminal mischief after the Walmart reportedly lost money replacing ice cream tubs and paying charges related to the police investigation, according to Jefferson County District Attorney Bob Wortham.
