    I just saw that Gruesome Newsome is having to revise the State of California budget due to a dramatic loss in tax revenues. Is this because many productive, tax paying people are leaving the state? As the producers leave and the "receivers" remain to enjoy the weather, the balance will continue to tip the wrong direction.

    I was reminded of that bumper sticker that used to be popular: "Welcome to California. Now go home." :D

    Our corrupted Federal government has got his back. Maybe a Light Rail infrastructure project with no audits and no accountability. It's the DNC version of a Hunter painting.

    It'll be easy. They did it for Xi's visit and it looked great for a bit.

    That’s pretty much what the residents of other states have been saying about Californians.
    Instead of leaving their failing state baggage where it only hurts Californians, they carry a lot of it with them when they pick up residency in other states.

    Yeah, we see a lot of it here.

    Califokies arrive real-estate cash rich, tipping developers to favor high-profit McMansion developments and high-ticket condos and apartments. Locals get squeezed as out demands for services ramp up and property taxes rise accordingly. We have so many roads closed now, torn up to put in larger utility works and then widen them for the increased traffic since the Cokies tend to arrive as a 3 or 4 car household.
