California Draining on Such a Winter's Day

As deficits mount and taxes increase, productive people and enterprises are leaving California for more hospitable states.
Inevitably, there will be a tipping point when the state divides between a large welfare population that controls the vote and the rich who live in gated communities but whose tax revenues cannot support the state's obligations. Good indicators of the outward migration are the prices of U-Haul vehicles. To rent a 26-foot truck one-way from San Francisco to Austin costs $3236, and yet the one-way charge for that same truck from Austin to San Francisco is just $399. Even so, U-Haul has to pay its employees to drive the empty trucks back from Texas. -- American Thinker: The Sad State of the State of California

Your Say

Oh, well.. no problem there. Blue states will just take federal bailouts. They have their bases covered.

The poor people of Austin...

There will be no bailouts. That is the double encrypted, seal your lips, no crossed fingers secret that has the Donkeys worried.

Some of the limp willy GOP House members might think about bailouts, but the TEA Party members won't vote for them. They'll take the pain and get over it. Tell them it's for the Children!
