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

California's Exodus Reverses "Gold" Rush | NBC Los Angeles

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.")


Can we toss California out of the Union.? Just a thought.

Maybe California can introduce its own currency, and quit the $-Zone at the same time, when Greece quits the Eurozone?

That's option expiration day and i probably missed the bulk of the move or maybe not. So will have plenty of time to reinvent the world today.

It is interesting that the social discourse in the US was not so heated and polarized when the economy was faring well ('90's). The troubles now stem (I believe) from big bank malfeasance - CDO, MBS, MERS, robo-signing, perjury, municipal bond fraud etc. etc.
All the social unrest springs from what was done to tank the economy.

I believe in the Netherlands and Iceland, they nationalized their banks and their recovery is under way. We, on the other hand, reward our too big to fail banks, and are still allowing them to suck blood from the economy through Maiden Lane programs and the Federal Reserve.

The focus on ancillary issues is a good distraction from the villains that caused the mess. It helps push their culpability into the shadows where they prefer to operate.

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.

I agree 100%

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

Maybe we should tell them to just say no...

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.

They tell me they are returning home because there are tremendous growth opportunities there.

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

Things to ponder in the bunker:

Soooo ... if a zombie doesn't eat someone... will he die of starvation... since he's already dead?

If a cannibal eats his own body parts ... will he gain weight?





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

Or it could be like Texas and succeed from the Union.

Texas is in a much better position to secede. Texas might be the only state that could survive a secession.

Texas has coastline (so does cali), we're #1 in Cattle, #1 in Cotton and #1 in oil refinement and #2 in oil production.

Oil is the key,

AND, we have more guns per capita, which would be the most operable part of enduring a protracted conflict with "the gubment"

secede

Oops, I do know how to spell usually

Maybe a Freudian slip? Success through seceding?

.

Must remember one thing: The big banks were only doing the bidding of the federal government. Every effing thing done was not only permitted but also encouraged by the federal government. As an example there would have been no CDO issues if it were not for Freddie and Fannie underwriting the junk mortgages. Everything leads back to the pathetic idiots in Washington DC.
