    That is why raising taxes should be a federal activity, not a state activity.

    It’s called a balanced budget; there’s nothing left to cut, so there’s only one thing left to do.

    “Texas will welcome them. As long as they leave their Liberalism where it belongs, In Cal.”
    - Good riddance, let’s see how long they put up with the filthy air and water.

    ReFlex-76, don’t judge all of Texas by the Houston area. Just as you can’t judge all of California by the L.A. area.

    I am convinced that a lot of the sorry state the U.S. is in (and has been for decades in terms of education, health care, environment etc.) is this “race to the bottom” mentality between the states. The U.S. is a republic? Not sure anymore. It “feels” more like that “Group of independent states” that was the successor to the Soviet Union…

    As soon as Texas is on-their-own then attacked by(?) they will quickly sue to return as a member of the United States… of Mexico and things will have come full circle. “Recuerden el Alamo”.

    Yeah, there’s an idea, move your high tech start up out of the Silicon Valley… There are ten waiting to take your spot, and the folks at Kleiner Perkins won’t even notice you’ve left…
    .
    Here’s another idea, take your screenplay to the film producers in Toledo Ohio! You know what they’ll tell you? “This isn’t Paducha you know!”
    .
    Maybe you will be ablbe to serve the naval base in San Diego from Vegas! Sure, I’m sure nobody will mind.
    .
    Oh and you vintners, I’m sure that the grapes will grow just as well in Kansas… And the vintner community is so very strong there too.
    .
    Whatshername said of California that there is no There, there. And since then California has been very diligent about having identified and grown it’s own culture. Now most industries that are in CA are part of their own particular insular culture. If you are “in” with the “in” crowd (as it is said) then you are good. You cannot be “In” when you are “out” (ask Microsoft) (ask Apple).
    .
    Ramirez is fear mongering against all known facts of the case.

    You really should visit Texas sometime. It’s not at all like the descriptions you’re reading on the Daily KOokS.

    If they want to leave America and go to a foreign country that is their business.

    Technically, Gertrude Stein (thatshername) was specifically speaking about Oakland, her hometown. Just sayin’.

    It’s the best “divide and conquer” strategy the radical rich (and the GOP) have come up with yet. Most middle class Americans don’t realize that “state’s rights” is a code phrase for: lousy jobs, bad roads, terrible schools, and below average medical care.

    True, just like “Right to work” means they can fire you for no reason whatsoever but especially if on pay day you have the temerity to say “Please, sir; I want some more.”

    States rights simply means that states make decisions instead of the government. Basically, Massachusetts can institute a Healthcare plan if they want to, and Texas could care less. Are the liberals suddenly afraid the majority of the states no longer agree with them? Can the Democrats overcome political apathy just long enough to get Obama re-elected?

    Right to work allows employees to leave a union if they wish to. Some conservatives do want to abolish unions, but ultimately, freedom to leave or join a union is much better than either being forced into or out of a union.

    -
    Gertrude Stein. And she said it about Oakland, where she grew up.
    -
    If she had been a baseball fan, her most famous quote might have been different.
