The lazy, the inept, the criminal element, the overweight, the passive, the benfit draining members of our societies are having babies at an ALARMING rate.

Aha...now I see ... You're saying the poor, lazy, sloven, fat losers... are getting laid more than you are... dang... no wonder you're so agitated...

Are you smoking crack?

No... all the poor, lazy, sloven, fat losers have it and all the loose women...

My daddy always said, "Brag was a good dog... Hold Fast was better"

1. Never let facts get in the way of a good rant.

2. You realize China has had a "One Child" per couple policy since 1978, right? It's the law.

3. The recruiter from MIT told me that in years past, the best and brightest students from China and India came to MIT, got their education and went to work for an American company. Today they still get their education at MIT and then they go back home to work or start new companies. They are concerned at some point if the foreign students will stop coming here.

4.The good news @RM99... you won't have to put up with it much longer... the billboard I saw said the world would end May 21st, 2011...

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

1. You need some new material

2. Yes, as a libertarian, I cannot support violating someone's right to procreate. I'd rather remove the socialist policy and redistribution of wealth and allow them to multiply and suffer of their own volition. Basically, if you stop paying for it, eventually they'll learn to put on a condom or stop short

3. Why do you think they're returning home now? Probably a combination of A) Increase in capitalist incentives in their home country and B) Decrease of Capitalist incentive/increase in socialist incentive here. I wouldn't worry too much about it right now...again, the Chinese are very dismayed they still have not won a Nobel Prize....and they can't for the life of them figure out why. Maybe it's because they line up their children and inform them of what they're going to be (or not going to be) for the rest of their lives. Your average socialist/communist doesn't realize that in reality, those forms of government create an even larger disparity between haves/have nots. Socialism still has the rich and powerful, they're just more powerful, more rich and more exclusive than under capitalism. So basically, unless you're a rich Chinese national, you do what the government tells you and not much more.

4. I'm not a survivalist type, but trust me, I'm more ready than most for whatever the world throws at me. I have plenty of ammo, food, gas mask, expedient shelter, water, a generator, etc. I could probably go balls out and buy stuff like celox, antibiotics, a nice expensive water purification kit and put together some type of food plot kit, but I'm not all the way crazy yet

I don't know what your talking about buddy... nobody is leaving here in droves.... California is bankrupt because the people voted for an actor as governor who really didn't know anything about politics...

I guess to sum up my point, it would be that socialism could work, in theory, if all the members of a society were productive. It would actually work swimingly.

The reality is that the there's no such fairy tale world. In sad reality, 50% of the people you meet are below average. Below average height. Below average intelligence. etc, etc, etc. And the problem with socialism is that it rewards the lazy, the inept, the unindustrious, etc, and all those people have to do is reproduce.

Benjamin Franklin said it best....

"When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic"

Just ask California how their direct democracy spending is going? They're going bankrupt and they think that raising taxes will solve the problem, but really, it will only ensure the inevitable....that they continue to decline. Successful people are moving out of California in droves. People that would otherwise start successful businesses there are seeking places like Houston, Austin, etc....

When the number of people who are below average, figure out all they have to do is use their numbers to rob the people who are above average....it's the beginning of the end. We've reached that fulcrum.

You people really should learn how to do some research. I don't make this stuff up. I know at LEAST a dozen people who live here in Austin from California. I know another 2 dozen who live in Houston that are/were Californians.

There¿s no majority race anymore; but whites, European Americans, are leaving the golden state in growing numbers - KTXL

California exodus turns to stampede

There¿s no majority race anymore; but whites, European Americans, are leaving the golden state in growing numbers - KTXL

I stopped at 4, but there are literally hundreds of articles outlining how the taxes and social burdens of California are forcing it's residents elsewhere (and it's businesses).

The vast majority of those people are business owners, successful types, people who employ OTHER people.

Conversely, when a state like California robs hard working private sector citizens, to give to immigrants, government workers and the like, it ENCOURAGES immigration of both illegals AND other poor people from states with lesser benefits.

It's like a win/win for states like Arizona. The rif raf moves to Cali seeking better welfare benefits, and the talent moves to Arizona seeking shelter from the Robin Hood state government.

As we write this, jobs are leaving the state of Illinois by the truckload into the waiting arms of Indiana, who instead of raising taxes, has chosen to LOWER taxes (I know, a truly Draconian thought). Caterpillar has already started pulling out of the state and that's a banner company for them.

Democrats will NEVER understand long term concepts like repatriation of funds, laffer curves, tax incentivization or the fact that RICH people employ others. (I've never worked for a man who had less money than me and I'd venture to say that most people haven't. "I've never been hired by a poor man.")

My understanding was that A.S. actively and continually worked to reform spending w/o success. I'm interested in your take as a resident

As far as I know there have been other actors around in California before. I would not overestimate the impact of the governator. California has been bankrupt before.

Reaganomics and Thatcherism and the myth of self-regulating markets is one of the roots - although not the only one - of the current problems. There is no invisible hand, and negative feedback loops - which is the mathematical description of the invisible hand - only work under defined conditions. Often the invisible hand is in contradiction to the optimal outcome. This is called a prisoner's dilemma or moral hazard. A Nash equilibrium, as induced by markets, will not necessarily be the Pareto optimal outcome.

Only rules that are enforced will allow market mechanisms to work. Don't think I am a socialist, because I believe that markets do need rules.

If you watch a soccer or baseball game, would that work without rules and an arbiter?
