I LOVE California. I grew up along the Ventura coast and the Channel Islands as an 11-year-old boy. I was then stationed in beautiful San Diego as a young Navy SEAL, and then I left the state because of all the reasons I’m going to write about below.

I LOVE California but it’s going to Hell with Harvey Weinstein.

To my Californian friends (and mom who lives in Ventura), it’s not too late to get out while you can, and apologies in advance for what I’m about to say.

There will be no take-backs… it’s truly liberating to actually express a strong opinion these days and I’m grateful that SOFREP is one of the few places I (we) have left for this.
