    In California they have city,county,state and federal government union employee’s and folks on welfare.Most everyone else is leaving because they can’t get a job.

    Moon beam and the dims can’t figure out why.
    They continue to heap regulations ,fee’s and taxes on small business to the point they can’t make any money.Then wonder why they leave or just close their doors. The definition of crazy is doing the same thing over and over expecting different results.They have been spiraling down for some time now and still can’t fix things.

    On a recent trip to Southern Cal, I went into a national chain and had the same breakfast that I have in the same chain in North Georgia. Cost in GA = 8.95. Cost in CA=12.95. Why would I want to live there?

    How is pointing out a higher cost of living a false premise? Or do you think that higher taxes on the “wealthy” have no effect on the overall cost of living for everyone. :-)

    Hey, Uncle. We’ve got plenty of them here too, just as nice, and they’re a lot friendlier to us old guys. :-)

    Real life example. Our company shut down all our California offices and moved the HQ from south SF bay area to Wisconsin. Our C-levels were all eager to move. Taxes, regulations, employee salary demands, commute and quality of life all factored into this decision, along with rent. Office space was so much cheaper. As people quit in California, we rehire in Wisconsin. It’s a no-brainer.

    When you have to pay half the price to get it there and that is why it is 15.95, you have just proven North’s point. Why is it so high in Cal.? Answer not because of shipping and handling like in those far flung places. MM why would they go “over the border” why is it cheaper to just drive to another State?

    I suppose this means you wouldn’t live in New York, either. Big cities provide big salaries, big rent, increased costs for necessities. Goes with the territory, regardless of geography.

    Absolutely correct! I grew up in New York City, left when I was 32 for a better life in Atlanta, and would not lower my standard of living to go back.

    Florida, Arizona, and California all have the same basic problem, all the whiny, cheapskate, right wingers, who moved from the east to get the “lifestyle”, then screwed it all up because they didn’t want to pay any taxes. they just wanted to maintain the services and benefits, for FREE!


    BTW: sure glad those folks moving to Wisconsin will never have to shovel any snow in the winter. New York advertising for businesses to move there, free of taxes for years,is also an indicator of how much “Corporate America” wants to “share the wealth”, with the actual “persons” desrving of “personhood”.

    Three months later he is bankrupt. What happened? It was great until I got to 100% sawdust, then the chickens all died."
    so not letting the government take 100% of your money you made is not a good thing? And the sawdust is what money not taken or money that should have been taken or what? and how does money taken equal growth? or are you saying that mommy government needs to take money, give no real replacement value, so as things will not get to big to fail?

    @ReasonsVentriloquist

    Your analogy works just as well if the egg farmer is the state government, the chickens are the tax payers and the sawdust is tax increases.

    @ReasonsVentriloquist

    Egg Farmer is facing tough times. He notices that the chicken spill 3/4 of their food, So he cuts the food with sawdust (the sawdust represents “tax cuts” here)"
    So companies in Cal. have so much they can waste 3/4 of the money they take in. And because they are so stupid and waste 3/4 of the money, mommy government should come in and what give them nothing for what they are wasting?
