    Limousine Liberals that think just because they and their rich friends are doing great, who cares if the “working chump” can’t find a job.
    Bring on Texas, the biggest producer of jobs and yes, a Red State!

    As long as California has a bunch of stupid, job-killing laws that prevent good businesses from operating profitably, they can expect to lose most of their good jobs to Texas, the ‘Business Friendly’ State.

    Mississippi and Kentucky have higher unemployment compared to California, I guess they must have a bunch of closet liberals passing social laws in secret. If you look at what Houston is doing, it is embracing their immigrant population and building a vibrant multicultural city. Texas recently changed a law that required storage of dangerous chemicals and explosives by companies no longer need to be publicly disclosed. I guess they got tired of the neighbors complaining that they might be in danger. They already have had explosions in the past that wiped out small towns. Great place to live!

    I’ve lived in both States and no matter WHAT the jobs situation is in Texas, there’s only one city or town in the State where I’d consider living, that would be Austin. In California I could name fifty – that would be 5-0 – in twenty minutes.

    I suggest Lisa leaves whatever-the-cushy-place she resides in Orange county and MOVE to Texas; post her RepubliCon anti-sensible-government propaganda from an ‘open-carry’ zone for a few years.

    Texas may have to go to the Feds, but when they do it will be the fault of Obama and the influx of uncountable illegal aliens along with the Mexican gangs.

    Texas is going to be a world class crap hole inside of ten years. The Texas legislature falling all over itself to bend over to the corporations while totally not caring about the people of the state.

    It has nothing to do with liberalism. The government, even a conservative government, is supposed to be working for the people, not corporate donors.

    as usual a lot of misleading untrue ans totally made up “Facts” best you can come up with. you leave out that the cost of living in Texas is much lower than liberal states, we have no income tax so we keep more of our money, and we have thousands of jobs available. you unemployment figures include all the illegal emigrants the big o is drowning the border states in.

    California has openings at the prison system.
    Good paying union jobs.
    Soon all they will have left is the state union employee’s and welfare recipients. Most of whom are not U.S. citizens.
    The illegals are not even going there now.

    “if you look at what Houston is doing, it is embracing their immigrant population and building a vibrant multicultural city.”

    Or, it just could be that people who can do the job are getting hired.

    “What a monstrous misrepresentation.”

    I have no idea where you are getting your numbers, In checking with the Bureau of Labor Statistics on unemployment I found:

    Texas 5.1%
    Massachusetts 5.6%
    New York 6.7%

    About the same? No.

    As for median income. from the latest numbers (2012) from the Census Bureau:

    United States $51,017
    Texas $51,926

    I don’t think Texas’ median income dropped 10% below the national median income in 19 months; however, older data does show numbers approaching what you posted.
