Californicatia's illegal immigrants sucking their economy dry...
Hmmm, California was the highest followed by the District of Columbia, followed by Florida.
All blue states. Must be flawed data. Gotta have a red state in there somewhere.
59.1% of California voters chose Obama over Romney.
The District of Columbia led the nation with a whopping 91.4% Obama voters over 7.1% for Romney.
Florida was the weakest blue state, with voters showing a 0.7% preference of Obama over Romney.
And as California goes, so goes the rest of the nation, as the saying goes.
Yes, FORWARD, into nationwide poverty, ONWARD further into the socialists state with you left wingnuts dragging us all in, with 100% of the sheeple sucking milk from the teat of the nanny state.
"The United Socialists States of America" -kind of has a Soviet style to it, no?
Yep, as California goes, so goes the rest of this once proud nation.
The fiscal and business policies of California have created a situation in which there is a definitive two tiered stratification of society with an ever decreasing middle tier. There is a small group at the top that is fabulously wealthy (wealth and income are not the same) based on endeavors such as the circuses industry (aka entertainment industry) and the knowledge based tech sector. On the bottom there is a vast layer of both foreign imported and domestic imported poverty. The top tier generally tend to be afflicted with the 'save the world; I know what is better for you than you know for yourself' messiah complex affliction. The policies that they generally support are two-fold. The first consists of heavy taxation on income. This only marginally affects them given their extant wealth but makes it vastly more difficult for those attempting to move from middle upper class to lower upper class. The second consists of a regulatory framework that drives out traditional manufacturing and building (the modern 'environmentalism' is the religion of rich White Prygryssyves). Coupled with both of these is the touchy feely emotionally driven 'programs' that that are about the quicksand entrapping 'social justice' pablum rather than actually helping those that they are purportedly trying to help. It makes little sense for those in the actual middle class to remain in this state in regards to both state of primary residence and in regards to basing one's business.
Unfortunately, a portion of those that have been able to leave this state bring their ruinous ideology with them and seek to implement the same ruinous ideology in other states. There is a reason why Californians are generally despised by those that live in other states... it is unfortunate that this follows all who are seeking to leave the state.
These excerpts from a recent article by Victor Davis Hanson:
" The bluest state is polling at a 20 to 24 point lead for Barack Obama. Who cares that it is struggling with nearly 11% unemployment and facing a $16 billion budget shortfall? What does it matter that its public schools rated variously from 45th to 49th in the nation and that it is home to one-third of the nationís welfare recipients, forty percent of the nationís illegal aliens, and the largest prison population in the country? If Ohio supposedly has a million Obama-phones , I shudder to wonder how many are in California.
Bleak? But such stats do not necessarily translate into the bad life for those Californians who vote ó a least in comparison, I suppose, to Minnesotaís winters, Mississippiís rate of welfare payouts, Baltimoreís streets, or Mexicoís police. We are living on the fumes of natural wealth and a century of prior investment by some pretty hard-working and far-sighted long dead Californians; and it takes a long time to screw all that up.
Indeed, the stateís voting population accepts the status quo: the growing underclass expects entitlements always to grow even greater; state employees are more than happy with in-the-future-unsustainable benefits and packages; and the coastal elite have enough money that they do not care whether they have to pay a bit more to subsidize others and create tranquility in their anointed souls..."
... " In other words, we are a happy-go-lucky, sunny Greece around 2004 before the fall..."
George Lucas pushes low-income housing option
Filmmaker George Lucas is pushing forward with plans to build low-income housing at Marin County's picturesque Grady Ranch, a vow of his that was widely dismissed as an insincere attempt by the billionaire to thumb his nose at complaining neighbors.
The Marin Community Foundation announced Tuesday that it is working with Lucasfilm to "explore options" for building affordable housing in the location where the movie mogul wanted to build a film studio until residents in an adjacent subdivision protested....
