FREEDOM to suppress women and minorities.
FREEDOM! and a governor who treats the Special Olympics as the enemy.
Even my brother who spent his career in Florida promptly moved as soon as he and his spouse retired. Of course, they chose Georgia: They’re very conservative, though no longer Republican. And of course, their daughter and her family are living there now…
I know lots of people that moved out of California. They were fed up.
Lisa, you moving to Florida?
Remember the cold war joke that “Countries with ‘Democratic’ in their names aren’t”? That’s how I feel about the US use of ‘Freedom’.
California has some of the highest taxes in the nation and is expecting a 68 BILLION (68,000,000,000) dollar surplus this year. I would say people are over taxed in thay state.
Gov Newsome, advertising California in the state of Florida. Here’s part of the script he left off. "Come to California for…A homeless population that rivals a 3rd world country, the highest gas prices in the USA, District Attorney’s that offer no cash bail, so criminals are back on the street, within hours to rob and rape again, fires that burn every year destroying the countryside because the libs won’t allow controlled burns to rid the forest of timber, gangs terrorizing the citizen’s, the most expensive housing in the country, rolling power blackouts, earthquakes etc. Shall I go on?
Someone, I believe Mark Twain, said “I’d rather be in Philadelphia”.
I think you will find christian conservatives fleeing California are more likely to head for the warm embrace of Texas Fascism.
Florida, best state in the country!
The second big lie.
LVObserver definitely sounds like s/he is a libertarian… I wonder how well off s/he is: https://www.thoughtco.com/the-libertarian-party-platform-a-quick-summary-721550
Thanks for my morning chuckle. I don’t accept statements w/o checking the veracity of the source(s). Cato Institute. Fraser Institute. The Blaze. Dailywire. Libertarian sources. Charles Koch is a libertarian… no regulations on businesses… if your house on fire you pay for the services of the fire dept… hire your own security… if ya can’t pay for it, you can’t get it. What a lovely dystopian catastrophe you claim is freedom.
“Florida just ranked as the freest state in America and New York is apparently the least free, according to a new report from a LIBERTARIAN think tank. The right-leaning Cato Institute published its “Freedom in the 50 States” report this month based on how each state’s policies promote fiscal, regulatory and personal freedom."
Right-wingers are worried this influx of Californians will turn Florida BLUE!
The smart people in California are leaving. The IQ of the state goes down daily..
Again … So why is L. Benson still residing in CA?
We definitely need to lose a few folks, way too many people here now. And if they take their voting tendencies along with them a win for other parts of the country as well.
FREEDOM to die of COVID!
I’ve lived all over the country. I grew up in NYC. I lived a few years in Massachusetts, Georgia and South Dakota. I’ve spent a lot of time in Florida and Texas with friends and family. But, I’ve chosen California as my home.
It’s expensive here, but so is NYC or Boston (or any other major city). We have Natural disasters here, but so does everywhere else. We have earthquakes and fires, Texas and Florida have Hurricanes and tornadoes (as a bonus Texas also gets frigid weather and blizzards). If your politics skews right, well, you’re not going to like it here.
The RWNJ like to portray California as a crime ridden Progressive h*ll hole, where homeless transvestites prey on the good citizens. In actuality, California is number 16 in crime, Texas is #15 and nearly all the southern states and some western ones take up the other 14 slots(all Red states). We have a lot of homeless here ( half the homeless people are in California). It’s a problem, but it’s an old one.
California lost a net of 100,000 people last year. As a percent of California’s population, that’s 0% to the nearest percent (0.0025%), so, not an exodus. People move around in America, that’s how California got so big in the first place. If you don’t like it here, go somewhere else. If you find that hurricanes and blizzards and politicians who would rather fight with imaginary creatures than solve your state’s problems, then come back here.
We promise not to say you we told you so.
But ya know what’s going to happen when all those liberals get in Florida, right?
In all honesty, both states are doomed. Florida will be under a great deal of water by the next century. Meanwhile, California is running out of water, and they are living on borrowed time concerning the next major earthquake.
Canada is nice and should be fairly tropical by the next century.
It is indeed amusing to see the poster child of hubris encouraging people to join him.
Ah – William Wallace :-)
When Florida is underwater and Disney closes / moves away, and Florida stops being the punchline to so many jokes, etc.
Sorry, Comic Man, I had to borrow this,
“Come to California for…A homeless population that rivals a 3rd world country, the highest gas prices in the USA, District Attorney’s that offer no cash bail, so criminals are back on the street, within hours to rob and rape again, fires that burn every year destroying the countryside because the libs won’t allow controlled burns to rid the forest of timber, gangs terrorizing the citizen’s, the most expensive housing in the country, rolling power blackouts, earthquakes etc. Shall I go on?”
freedom to be underwater within 1/2 century (but don’t mention climate change!)
Florida? Free? You jest.
Why would you head to Florida for freedom . . . even Texas for that matter?
FREEDOM has an all new meaning obviously. Along with many other words like, patriot, integrity, heritage, etc………
That’s a very inaccurate cartoon; you haven’t been able to book a UHaul leaving Cali for over a year now, they’re all in other states they’ve fled to.
I’ve lived in California. I’ve lived in Florida. If it was one or the other I’d pick California, every time.
Good-bye Lisa! Enjoy FLA. Don’t let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya on your way out.
If they get enough people the ocean will cover it over that much sooner.
No suppression. Women can still access abortion for rape, incest and to save their lives. Birth control is cheap and widely available. Caucasians are fast becoming the minority in Florida.
This guy is truly a joke and yet he has gotten elected and beat a recall effort…anexample of apathetic citizens.
yea… FREEDOM… as long as you are a white male or female of voting age who wants the government making your birth decisions….FREEDOM… as long as you don’t wear that ‘theatrical’ mask near the governor … or want to get a vaccine shot easily….FREEDOM… as long as you don’t want to vote by mail… FREEDOM as long as you go along with the BIG LIE…. FREEDOM as long as your not a person of color or immigrant and don’t get too ‘uppity’….
All Newsom’s Opponent will have to do is show pictures of California tourist attrations 10 yrs ago,, and what they look like Now.
