Rick Perry does California a favor
ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:draggingtree, 2/11/2013 1:00:11 PM

Texas Gov. Rick Perry was scheduled to be in California the start of this week. The Associated Press reported the governor planned to meet with executives in San Francisco, Silicon Valley, Los Angeles and Orange County. Gov. Perry´s office said he would meet with leaders in the high-tech, biotech, financial, insurance and entertainment industries. The visit follows a modest radio ad campaign launched last week – which then spawned nationwide media attention – aimed at promoting the Lone Star State´s lower taxes and friendlier business climate. snip

Calif is a lost cause. Forget about it. Nothing can save it from itself. The idiot electorate have installed a communist regime beholden to the state workers unions. The dems have a 2/3 lock on both houses of the legislature, much like Pelosi and Reid had for 2 years. They are going after guns big time an are currently working to undermine the ballot initiative process by giving voters less of an opportunity for input. Also lurking are their attempts to dio away with Prop 13 property tax limitations. These are only 3 examples of the mayhem currently underway.

Those who can leave are. Those who can`t will pay dearly.

Until we have the regime issue a dictate eliminating travel between states, expect California, Illinois, NY and a couple of other states to see companies leave in droves. With the ‘recovery’ fizzling, companies will need to find ways to cut liabilities and cost as much as possible. And Texas is there with open arms.

Colorado is being destroyed by thousands of Californicans (Californians) moving into the state.

The problem isn´t with the business leaders in CA, its with the leftist politicos, professors, lawyers, and environmentalists. Those folks will never leave CA.

You´re welcome to come to Texas, but leave your liberal politics at the California state border on the way out.

But maybe we do need that border fence here in Texas ... on the northern, western and eastern borders. And a cattle guard around Austin to contain the liberal population that has infested that town.

I love CA but did not live in the LA or SF regions where things cost a fortune with all of the taxes. The teachers union is the
recipient of billions of dollars and are worthless and students are way behind other state schools.

Just a thought here. Maybe states should have a 5 year waiting period before a new resident can vote in local elections. Or, maybe they should require state history classes and passing a citizenship test before an applicant is allowed to become a state citizen (similar to "legal" immigrants). This would at least slow down the poisonous leftist political "virus" (cancer?) that seems to be consuming our country.

I know. I know. It would work both ways; but, who would WILLINGLY want to move to a leftist cesspool like California? ;-)

#9, California is NOT a leftist cesspool. San Francisco, Oakland, and parts of Los Angeles might be, but there are large parts of the state that´s as conservative as any where else. Not all Californians are liberals.

Texans - Watch out for the Austin, TX area! You have a lot of liberal leftists teaching at Univ of Texas and at those high tech operations surrounding Austin. Also, watch out for San Antonio. I love Texas - I don´t want it to change. When you move to Texas - LEAVE YOUR liberal nonsense at the border!!

Cairo, Egypt-In the weirdest statement yet announced by a person belonging to any country in the world, a Muslim Brotherhood leader called Mohammed El-Beltagy, asked the United States, the European Union and NATO to send their armies to Egypt to fight against the Egyptian army and destroy it, under the pretext that the army wants to destroy the Muslim Brotherhood and scatter them.

London, England - A new wealth tax is being proposed by the leftist wing (The Liberal Democrats) of our coalition government that will come with unprecedented powers to enter our homes and root through our personal possessions to value rings, necklaces, paintings and furniture, anything that might raise more taxes. If we refuse to be inspected or get our own valuations wrong, we would be facing fines, maybe even a jail sentence. This brainchild was conceived by the Lib Dems for their next election manifesto and is part of a series of measures planned to tax the better off.

Obama: Marxist Revolutionary

As most real conservatives know, Obama, by his own admissions, appointments, associates, and actions, is a hard-core, 21st century, Marxist revolutionary. This means that while he has no real plan for what his utopian, pie-in-the-sky collectivist state would look like, or how it would survive as an economic entity, he is dedicated to destroying our existing free, constitutional, capitalist republic to start the process. It also means that like all Marxists, archaic and modern, his primary enemy is what Marx called the bourgeoisie – the Middle Class. As those who went to school while actual history

The crowd was roaring. The lone man, ramrod straight, in his impeccable brown uniform would step forward toward the lectern, then pause and let his eyes wander over the thousands of up turned faces—all staring at him, waiting for him to speak. And they waited—and they waited. (Snip) A full sixty seconds would expire before that man would take the one remaining step to the lectern, and begin speaking.

MEXICO CITY — Mexico said Wednesday that it had records of more than 27,000 cases of “disappeared people” that it would make public soon in an effort to clarify the circumstances under which they vanished. Lia Limon, the country’s deputy interior secretary for human rights, acknowledged the cases hours after Human Rights Watch issued a scathing report that called Mexico the Western Hemisphere’s hot spot for “enforced disappearances,”

The President Is Raging Against
a Budget Crisis He Created

A week from now, a dramatic new federal policy is set to go into effect that threatens U.S. national security, thousands of jobs and more. In a bit of irony, President Obama stood Tuesday with first responders who could lose their jobs if the policy goes into effect. Most Americans are just hearing about this Washington creation for the first time: the sequester. What they might not realize from Mr. Obama´s statements is that it is a product of the president´s own failed leadership.

Leaving aside for the moment the likelihood that parties and party politics in America will become moot within the next few years (owing to the emergence of a single party or the country’s dissolution into civil war), conservatives and libertarians are finding themselves at an unpleasant crossroads. While some observers gave up on the leadership of the Republican Party long ago, it is now becoming apparent to rank-and-file Republicans that the GOP leadership and its prominent operatives are wholly complicit in the fundamental transformation of America.

White House blames fox for

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.

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

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
