The Federalist Papers has a wonderful guide to translate Californian terms to what they mean in Texas. For example:
CALIFORNIA: "Arsenal of weapons"
TEXAS: "Gun collection"
CALIFORNIA: "Assault and battery"
TEXAS: "Attitude adjustment"
CALIFORNIA: "Multicultural community"
TEXAS: "High crime area"
CALIFORNIA: "Investment for the future"
TEXAS: "Higher taxes"
CALIFORNIA: "Exploiters or 'The Rich' "
TEXAS: "Employed or Land Owner"
There are more at the link. Good for a laugh, if you're a Texan (as Miss D. and I now are, by voting with our feet). Liable to cause the political equivalent of PMS if you're a liberal Californian!
