Flee California Now!

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/04/21

I previously wrote about the massive amount of businesses fleeing California. I even noted the mega-billions in tax revenue California lost as people — not businesses — fled the Pyrite State. Well, there’s more news about just who is fleeing California. And it’s those very people who will be necessary to turn California around: the young married couple and their children. From The Wall Street Journal (care of The First Street Journal) comes the corroboration.

Joel Kotkin: The Great California Exodus

A leading U.S. demographer and ‘Truman Democrat’ talks about what is driving the middle class out of the Golden State.

“California is God’s best moment,” says Joel Kotkin. “It’s the best place in the world to live.” Or at least it used to be.

Now, however, the Golden State’s fastest-growing entity is government and its biggest product is red tape. The first thing that comes to many American minds when you mention California isn’t Hollywood or tanned girls on a beach, but Greece. Many progressives in California take that as a compliment since Greeks are ostensibly happier. But as Mr. Kotkin notes, Californians are increasingly pursuing happiness elsewhere.

Nearly four million more people have left the Golden State in the last two decades than have come from other states. This is a sharp reversal from the 1980s, when 100,000 more Americans were settling in California each year than were leaving. According to Mr. Kotkin, most of those leaving are between the ages of 5 and 14 or 34 to 45. In other words, young families.

As “they” say, RTWT. But some quick math. 100,000 more Americans moving into California than leaving during the 1980s makes 1,000,000 American “profit”. The “loss” of 4,000,000 since the 1980s leaves the accounting books for the past 30 years at a 3,000,000 American soul “loss”.

California has less than 60 million souls. And far less than that number of actual “legally here” souls. And even fewer American souls. For over 4 million souls to vamoose, it would take 6-2/3 percent reduction in American Citizen population over 20 years. Since California has seen a nominal increase in population since Y2K, that means far more than 6-2/3 percent of the total already living in California was added to California by the foreigner influx. Commenter Hoagie’s wife (God bless her soul) just this week became a US Citizen. And she is arguably more Conservative than I, as she grew up within 60 miles of the DMZ. But she differs from California’s immigrants in that she came here legally and she loves the US, while the lion’s share of California’s immigrants are in the US illegally and have no fealty whatsoever with the US. And, contrary to Hoagie’s wife June, it is illegal for them to vote. But they provide a massive amount of support for allocating California’s 53 Representatives to Congress.

Alright, I went on a tangent there for a moment. I’m back. California is sinking into the abyss. Rapidly. California is shedding employers at an alarming rate. And the people California needs to turn California around? They’re fleeing California, too.

What does all of this mean? It means that, in California’s time of greatest need, those who are most able to rescue California have either already left or are in the process of leaving. There was a very popular game back in the 1980s where you spun a marble in a funnel and tried to time its drop before releasing your own marble. The closer you got to the drop point, the more points you scored. As anyone who ever played that game knows, the closer that marble got to the end-point, the faster it spun. Also, there was no telling when that marble would actually give up the ghost and enter its final fall.

This is California. It will fall. It will collapse. It is only a matter of timing. And the responsibility for its fall rests four-square on the shoulders of the residents who continue to elect radical Socialist Democcrats as the people’s lives become evermore unsustainable.

California is collapsing. Those who could save California are fleeing the collapse. That means California will collapse that much sooner. That means even more people who could possibly save California will flee to other states. That means California will collapse that much sooner. That means even more people who could possibly save California will flee to other states. That means California will collapse that much sooner. That means even more people who could possibly save California will flee to other states. … … … …

Anyone else see a pattern?

The Wall Street Journal article, written by a woman, made its way into Hot Air Headlines and got far more comments than normal.

Barack Hussein Obama Booed At Fenway Park

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/04/21

If a very Boston crowd, a very New England crowd, a very Liberal crowd actively boos Barack Insane Obama, what do you think “fly-over country” feels about this radical Socialist race-baiting Tenth Commandment-violating gun-grabbing Catholic-hating Israel-hating Constitution-torching narcissistic false god?

The oceans began to recede.
He brought us out of darkness and into the light. (Micah, Matthew, and, according to Michelle, her husband Barack)

Is The Obama Economy Growing?

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/04/21

Radical Leftist Socialist Democrats, such as Barack Obama and Perry Hood (Perry for those who met his lying ass years ago on Delaware Liberal or for those who met his lying ass years ago on Colossus of Rhodey (found in my side bar) or for those who met his lying ass on Common Sense Political Thought (found in my side bar), or Wagonwheel (and a sock puppet) for those who found his lying ass on The First Street Journal (found in my sidebar)), are very busily giving Barack Obama all the credit in the world for “saving the US from a second Great Depression and turning the US around.” But is it so? The turn-around, such as it is, did not begin until 2011. There may have been a deceleration in the decline in 2010, but any economist worth his salt will tell you, the closer you get to zero economic activity the harder it will be for the rate toward zero economic activity to continue. It’s only logical. No matter how difficult the times, there will still remain recession-proof jobs. People still need to eat. And after eating, they still need toilet paper. And they will still need garbage collection. So, why is it Obama and the rest of the Socialist Democrats feel worthy to claim any sort of “recovery” (such as it is, and it’s no recovery at all) which took place in 2011? It is because, for some of them, they know there are a huge number of absolutely politically ignorant people in the US who vote out of their absolute ignorance. For the rest of them, it’s due to their arrogantly ignorant and willfully ignorant hatred of anything that has a Conservative tag or an affiliation with the Founders and Framers.

Let’s look at some facts.

Wisconsin elects Governor Walker. Governor Walker keeps his campaign promises. Democrats shirk their responsibilities and flee to Illinois. The Republican agenda is passed anyway. Wisconsin citizens save money on their property taxes for the first time in years, many public schools went from deficit spending to being in the black, Wisconsin went from Democrat Deficit to Republican Balanced, Wisconsin became most improved economic outlook of all 50 states.

John Kasich, the man who became the Budget Committee Chairman after the Republican wave election of 1994 and handed Bill Clinton his “balanced” Budgets that Democrats praise, becomes Governor of Ohio. And proceeds to keep his campaign promises. Ohio’s budget goes from deficit to balanced without a tax increase. Ohio’s economy turns around much more strongly than the US economy.

A more fiscally Conservative Republican takes over for a fiscally irresponsible Democrat as Governor of Pennsylvania.

Southern states see their Legislatures become majority Republican and lose their majority Democrat status for the first time since Reformation (that would be the 1860s for the historically illiterate (read Democrats) among us). Note: that would necessarily mean majority Republican for the first time, since the Republicans supplanted the Whigs most fervently with the Abraham Lincoln election, which the southern states didn’t want.

Republican-led Texas has lowered its unemployment rate down to 7 percent — more than one full percent lower than the US average — despite Obama’s Contempt of Court actions to destroy domestic oil production and despite the Obama administration’s EPA war on Texas electric output.

Over 700 Democrat seats became Republican seats. Actually, a swing of over 700 seats net from Democrat to Republican, counting the very few seats that went from Republican to Democrat.

And after all that (and more that I didn’t list), the national economy quit sinking like a rock and showed signs of growth. And, of course, Democrats are claiming credit for all the work Republicans did. Just like during the Clinton administration, when Republicans tortured to death the Bill Clinton Big Government agenda and replaced it with a smaller (but not small), far less intrusive (but still intrusive), far more fiscally responsible (but still fiscally irresponsible) government agenda.

On the flip side, Democrat-run Illinois pumped multiple massive tax increases — the last happening 3 hours before they lost the vote power to cause it to happen, as the new Legislators would take their seats 3 hours after the vote — and Illinois went from a continuous slow uptick in total jobs in the state to a sudden retraction. After the last, and most major, tax increase from Illinois Democrats, businesses began to flee the state and jobs began to disappear. A net loss in total jobs occurred immediately after that huge tax increase on producers — people and businesses. And that net loss kept accruing for months on end. In fact, I have not seen any report that that sudden turnaround to despair has stopped or even slowed.

California has been losing huge numbers of businesses as they flee that Leftist state. In the wave TEA Party elections, California bucked the trend and pumped Democrats into office. And California’s unemployment rate is further above the national average than Texas’ is below. Businesses are fleeing California, other businesses are refusing to even bother trying to build in California, people are fleeing California.

If you look at economic activity and what rebound it has had, and you plot it according to the time it occurred and the location it occurred, you will find that growth in activity most clearly shown in states that were Republican and stayed Republican, or in states that were Democrat and became Republican. States like California and Illinois, which were Democrat and remained Democrat (doubled down on dumb-o-crap agendae), have suffered greatly. Perhaps even moreso after the 2010 TEAnami than before. Definitely the differences are stark: Conservative and Republican area has amplified its economic superiority over Socialist Democrat area. Just a quick perusal of the facts as I have noted above proves my case. A far more in-depth examination would only serve to prove my case even further. No detached logical fact-based reasoning could result in anything even remotely related to oppositional toward my declaration.

Go ahead. Look at the numbers. Look at the improvement. And look at it state by state and district by district. Or, if you’re a radical leftist like the Democrat power-brokers, don’t. Because radical Leftists will not like what they find (if they even bother to search for Truth, as they are not known for their Honor).

What caused me to write this article? The comment section on a The First Street Journal article covering vote fraud in Philadelphia. Read it.

For those legitimately wanting documentation, there are multiple articles covering Wisconsin, Illinois, Meatchicken (I’m a Buckeye through and through, so it’s excruciatingly painful to type out the name of that state), California on Truth Before Dishonor. And they have all manner of links. Of course, you could be Perry Hood, who demands documentation as a mere ploy to shut down discussion of facts he deplores and then never admits the facts absolutely support what his mortal enemy (not some foreign country but, rather, Conservatives in the US) say, in which case, don’t even bother.
