And Away They Go.... [Bumped]

State leaders closely watch migrating millionaires - SF Chronicle Lee Schneider, a hedge fund salesman
who works from home, also cited Prop. 30 as the "deciding factor" for his move from Walnut Creek to Austin, Texas, in 2012. The California native had recently built a $2 million house at the foot of Mount Diablo and took a loss on the sale, but "I can make half of it back in one year of tax savings," he´ú░says. Schneider's neighborhood in Texas, which has no state income tax, is full of cars with license-plate frames from California dealerships.

Your Say

And since in their brilliance the California Dems structured the state income tax so the top ten percent pay the lions share and the voters of California continue to support taxing the other guy this is sort of poetic.

I hope they don't bring their voting habits with them. Otherwise, come on over!

All y'all are welcome here in Texas.

Thing you want to do here is read the comments, especially the ones from the real cement head liberals. They'll be talking "Tax the Rich" when the last one leaves. And cursing him for his selfishness.

Amen Mike. They need to understand that California's problems are largely self-inflicted, not the result of some random catastrophe.
Essentially, California is full of Californians, and there lies the problem.

As the Freakonomics boys say, economics is all about incentives.

In 1992 I was listenng to the San Francisco radio KGO and they had a liberal talk show where the host was proclaiming that the loss of people who choose to leave California was no big deal because more people came into California then left. A man called in who had moved to Nevada to point out that he like so many other businessmen moved out and that California was losing employees and people with higher incomes while it was gaining welfare bums and illegal aliens. The host of course wouldn't acknowledge this basic fact and kept throwing up a smokescreen of phony arguements.

Mike, you will be able to recognize the transplants who are going to cause trouble when they whine "But that's not fair" about something that Texans think is small change. You have my permission to say "Howdy" . Texas style.

Eventually, anyone who had anything was a kulak. Burn, baby! Burn!

I sure hope that the California transplants intend to become Texans, and not just live there.

They misspelled "Flee" in that headline.

I live in metro Atlanta, lot's of folks here from California, and other stressed locales. Problem is, it's resembling those areas more and more. Folks that can, stay on the move to avoid "change".

If only the liberals would leave California and go back to where they came from...
Barbara Boxer? Born in the Bronx.
Nancy Pelosi? Baltimore.
And on and on.
Don't forget that this was the state that once upon a time had a governor named Ronald Reagan.
It wasn't until all the hippies and fruitcakes came here that it went to hell, so quit bashing "Californians" (who aren't) and take back your trash.

Thank you Uncle Jefe! Too continue your thought process, a great and true Californian; Jack Kemp (born in San Diego). An embarrassment who calls herself a Californian; Maxine Waters (Born in Missouri)
