    Always the leader in Trends.. here is another area..

    A finer-grained regional analysis reveals that the main current of migration out of California in the past decade has flowed eastward across the Colorado River, reversing the storied passages of the Dust Bowl era.
    Southern California had about 55 percent of the state’s population in 2000 but accounted for about 65 percent of the net out-migration in the decade that followed.
    More than 70 percent of the state’s net migration to Texas came from California’s south.

    A third factor is state and local governments’ constant fiscal instability, which sends at least two discouraging messages to businesses and individuals.
    One is that they cannot count on state and local governments to provide essential services—much less, tax breaks or other incentives.
    Second, chronically out-of-balance budgets can be seen as tax hikes waiting to happen.

    States with low unemployment rates, such as Texas, are drawing people from California, whose rate is above the national average.
    Taxation also appears to be a factor, especially as it contributes to the business climate and, in turn, jobs.

    Most of the destination states favored by Californians have lower taxes. States that have gained the most at California’s expense are rated as having better business climates.
    The data suggest that many cost drivers—taxes, regulations, the high price of housing and commercial real estate, costly electricity, union power, and high labor costs—are prompting businesses to locate outside California, thus helping to drive the exodus.

    Unfortunately, a lot of those Fornicalians bring their idiotic lolberal politics with them, as they try to make their new state more like the socialistic hell hole thy just escaped.

    Colorado and New Mexico are prime examples.

    True... I started this thread topic hoping some of those 7% Undecideds that may be on this board MIGHT make the very simple link that Calif. is a microcosm of the USA i.e. continued higher taxes, MORE regulations, ANTI-Capitalist attitudes is the Obama agenda!
    The only problem is as it was said THE USA was the last bastion for where people could go that want freedom.. well if Obama gets re-elected that may not be true!

    We see those assholes here in TN. There isn't a tax they don't like or a regulation they don't want to see in place. BUt its always about controlling "the other guy."
    fuck them. Let California slide into the sea and start over.

    Yeah, you want to tell them, "Delta is ready when you are."
