California´s Demographic Dilemma:
Where Are The Kids?

Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:HollowLeg, 1/15/2013 10:32:06 PM

Demographics: Just as baby boomers are reaching retirement or fleeing the state, a dearth of children threatens to turn the Golden State into the golden years state with potentially dire economic consequences.California was once a leader where the "next big thing" would happen and then migrate to the rest of the country. With an economy among the world´s largest if it were a separate country, it in a sense still is, having already gone over its own fiscal cliff, beset by low growth, high taxes and regulations, an exodus of business and population

Don´t they mean "Donde estan los bambinos!" Meaning the bambinos are in California, just don´t expect them to contribute much...muchos are reared by their parents to habla espanol and be takers.

School enrollment is down, yet the voters just passed a huge tax hike (they don´t think it´s huge, so they´ll have a nice surprise) with Prop 30 to send even more funds to the schools.

Class sizes continue to be large. My son´s 2nd grade class has 25 kids in it. We´re lucky, we´re in an excellent school district, I´m sure it´s worse in places like LA and Oakland.

They are hiring administrators at a record clip and sticking illegals into the system to bump up the numbers. It´s a huge scam. Yet California is home to rabid, religious Democrats and they will never, ever question what these "leaders" tell them. Never. The state is a never ending train wreck and I really don´t see how it´s ever going to be fixed.

CA has sent the children out of state for College and to establish roots as expats. Now the parents will leap frog , too. I just hope they leave their ultra lib agenda behind. New Hampshire is ruined by MA dims and VT got trashed by NYC. The lib plague is far flung.

Too many distractions.

The last time I checked, while there are many combinations of sexual organs and orifices providing sexual relief, there is only one combination also likely to produce offspring.

#8, you think a class of 25 kids is large? No wonder school taxes are so outrageous. I don´t think my kids ever set foot in a class that small, and I certainly didn´t, back in the olden days.

Pretty clever of Brown putting a tax increase on a ballot measure.Obviously,there´s more than enough non taxpaying,benefit grabbers in the state to win on this.

The left also wants to project that Brown´s tax increases solved all their fiscal problems and that should be a trendsetter across the country.

Since we stole Cal. from the Mexicans,the least we can do is give them a place to live.Who cares if their high school drop out rate is around 50%?Of course if you´re lucky enough to cash in ona dream act you can cruise your way through college for 8-10 years.

We didn´t steal California from the Mexicans. But unfortunately, the Mexicans (not American citizens of Mexican descent, but the illegals) are stealing all the taxpayer money and jobs. They get government checks (easier than citizens do and more money too!) AND work multiple jobs. Sometimes they work under the table but a lot don´t have to. They are still allowed to work if they can get a certain card (and they don´t even have to be here legally). There are also a lot of employers now who only hire hispanics--no whites allowed. They are companies owned by other hispanics that only give jobs to their own.

The only reason teachers and their unions keep pushing for smaller class sizes is so that they have to add more teachers who in turn have to pay dues to a union.

25 is a small class size. We had 30-35 when I was in school. We had good teachers and got a good education, not an indoctrination.

25 is the standard for my college class. When I went to school, we had two grades per classroom and large classes. I was taught by nuns who kept order and made sure we learned. I remember them with great fondness.

Political Correctness: Its force structure decimated by sequestration and budget cuts, the Marine Corps considers exchanging its proud and honored look for hats similar to the gendarmes who direct traffic in Paris. If sequestration´s annual spending cuts continue past this year, the Marine Corps will lose 8,000 in troop strength, Commandant Gen. James F. Amos told the Defense Writers Group in June. But those who remain will at least be fashion-conscious if a proposal for changes in their dress headgear goes forward. Men and women in the Marines

Junk Science: Al Gore, patron saint of climate fraud, argues with Australia´s prime minister that its brushfires are not caused by warming and that the record shows the koala bear, like the polar bear, is quite safe. They were the largest Australian bushfires in a populous region in recorded history, consuming half the state of Victoria, claiming 12 lives and destroying an estimated 1 million sheep and thousands of cattle. And they occurred in February 1851 during one of the coldest years on record. Bushfires have been part of Australian life for centuries

Energy: The Golden State´s governor has signed legislation that regulates but does not ban the technology that has sparked an energy boom nationwide — and which may yet restore the state to solvency. If any state were to ban hydraulic fracturing, commonly referred to as fracking, the process that releases oil and natural gas trapped in porous shale formations, one would think it would be California. Gov. Jerry Brown, who leads the government in a state that hosted Solyndra and embraces endangered bird-chopping wind turbines,

Scandal: A deadly battle involving grenades between a drug cartel and Mexican police has added to the toll of lives taken with weapons trafficked by suspects that U.S. officials watched but did not stop. The same Obama administration officials responsible for letting thousands of weapons walk into Mexico and right into the hands of drug cartels in Operation Fast and Furious also passed on several opportunities to arrest and prosecute an arms smuggler who was busy supplying the cartels with hand grenades. This according to a report by Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News, the one reporter

Corruption: The crash-prone government health-care site asks applicants if they want to register to vote as they try to sign up for ObamaCare. By sheer coincidence, a plurality of the uninsured are likely Democratic voters. Call it Motor Voter on steroids — the piggybacking of voter registration to an otherwise unrelated government function. Those trying to navigate Healthcare.gov, a website that looks and functions as if designed by the department of motor vehicles, are being asked if they want to register to vote just in time for crucial 2014 midterm elections

Regulation: From lost jobs to fewer hours to premium hikes that would make a loan shark drool, Barack Obama´s home state is a case study in why the first rule in health care reform, as in medicine, should be to do no harm. The president and his cohorts in the media have long accused Republicans of being out of touch with ordinary people. Remember the concocted story about President Bush the elder being so out of touch he was unfamiliar with supermarket bar-code scanners? But it´s President Obama who´s out of touch with ordinary people

Health Care: In a stunning admission, our Health and Human Services secretary admits ObamaCare is part of the fundamental transformation of America away from a free market in anything to a nanny state on steroids. Maybe Kathleen Sebelius was being sarcastic, or maybe she thought it might be a good way to reach the "young invincibles" who feel they had better things to do with their money than enroll in ObamaCare. But her recent appearance on Jon Stewart´s show on Comedy Central went about as well as ObamaCare´s train wreck of a rollout.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
