Left´s Howls Against Rick
Perry´s Texas Prove Its Low-Tax
Model Is A Success

Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 2/20/2013 8:41:34 AM

Taxation: Governor Rick Perry took a lot of ridicule for his efforts to lure California´s tax-strangled businesses to his home state of Texas. If that´s so ridiculous, how come it´s his leftist critics showing all the hysteria? Perry´s state is an undisputed economic success story and has been a magnet for businesses from all over the U.S. for several years now. With no income tax, a legislature that balances its budget and a bureaucracy that seems conditioned to ask businesses "How can I help you?", Texas´ biggest problem these days is finding enough office space to accommodate all the newcomers.

Comments:
They can´t stand the success of Texas - which speaks for itself.

There are many reasons for Texas and Texans to be proud!

Unfortunately, we all know what happens when blue staters flee to red states...like a virus, they infect everything with their lefty ideals.

In all seriousness, Texas should be the first State to secede, beginning a gold rush by other red States. By the time enough red States secede, the business-friendly, low-tax model will have been demonstrated to be a rousing, prosperous success that will begin a stampede by blue States to copy the model when they lose enough of their tax base.

SECEDE, Texas! Lead the way and tell California to bugger off.

I passed up a really ugly piece in Salon this morning. The headline was "Southern Poverty Pimps" with a photograph of an angry looking Governor Perry. Of course the point is that lots of jobs in Texas are low-paying and that Texas is a Right-to-Work state. Beyond that, the article was just a jealous snark.

The article does not mention Texas´ dirty ugly secret. Something that few outside Texas know about. The Texas leglislature only meets for six months every two years. In other words the state only has a part time leglislature. And whats more, we don´t pay them very much so they have to maintain real day jobs. Yet dispite all this we somehow manage to fumble along.

The argument by the leftists is that Texas is "lucky" because it is producing all this oil shale bring in huge revenues. California has a butt-load of oil and always has. Historically, say the last 30 years, California has ranked #3 in oil production. The problem is the liberals do not allow oil production off the coast and do all they can to limit production. That is the same as with their gold mines. There are a lot of old gold mines that could be reentered, but environmentalists stop it.

A low-paying job is better than a NO-paying job. Plus, they get to live in Texas. Pretty good deal.

´Low paying jobs´ are entry level jobs. It allows a first timer to get a job so that he/she can work their way up the chain to financial and personal success. Don´t knock ´low paying jobs.´

Just about any honest presentable person today can eventually get a job at any big box store (Walmart, Lowes, etc.) They need lots of employees and the prospect for moving up into management is quite good.

If I could stand the weather, fire ants, and cedar fever, I´d move back to Texas in a hummingbird´s heartbeat. California can´t decide whether it wants more to suck or blow, so all levels of government are doing their best to do both at the same time.

The left does not like anything that works, because it is so difficult for them to fix it. However, they make the utmost effort to fix it until it does not work.

My home, which is in the average Houston range, would go for over a million dollars in most parts of California.

So I don´t need a huge salary in order to justify a huge mortgage.

Cost of living in Texas is low compared to NY/CA. That´s why we do well.

Quality of life is better as well. And with technology, humidity, fire ants and pollen are easily controlled.

Idiots.

#5 and #12, I was synopsizing the Salon article´s point, not expressing my opinion. I fully agree with both of you. I am a multi-generation Texan, my family going back to Comanche-fighting days along the Trans-Pecos. I will defend my state any place and for any reason, most especially, to the clueless at Salon magazine.

I recently had an interesting conversation with my new-American-Citizen son-in-law who was born in Mexico, grew up in California. He said the longer he stays in Texas, the more self-confident and self-sufficient he becomes and the more he notices the difference is attitude when he visits his friends in California. Of course, I attribute some of the change in attitude to his being with my daughter who was brought up in a conservative household and who has that Texas independent attitude.

If you know any young Hispanics, you should make a real effort to influence them into adapting a conservative attitude. It may be the best thing you´ll ever do for your country.

Not so easy for folks who are allergic to that godforsaken species of cedar. The stuff´s unbelievable -- gave me mind-numbing vertigo for up to a month every year when I lived in Austin.

Argentina´s National Institute for Agricultural Technology (INTA) has invented a way to convert cow flatulence into usable energy, and it involves putting a plastic backpack on a cow. Livestock are responsible for a remarkable amount of global methane emissions, which are a major cause of global warming. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, cow flatulence and burping, accounts for 5.5 million metric tons of methane per year in the United States, that´s 20% of total US methane emissions.

Nobel Prize-winning novelist Gabriel Garcia Marquez, who was praised as the most popular Spanish writer since Cervantes, died today in Mexico City at the age of 87. Garcia Marquez, a former journalist who was born in Colombia but lived in Mexico for more than 30 years, is best known for his 1967 masterpiece, the epic, hallucinatory novel One Hundred Years of Solitude, about the trials and tribulations of one family over several generations. Widely taught in college, it has sold about 50 million copies in more than 25 languages. His other novels include Autumn of the Patriarch (1975), about a pathological fascist

"We are moving towards the creation of a different system," he added. Regarding the government´s so-called economic offensive, Ramírez stressed their new approach will focus on "production sectors so as to produce our own supplies and food." "Our economy has been under attack, and we will not wait until next year to take action; on the contrary, we have created a new exchange system, we have opened up new ways to allow the inflow of dollars," he stressed.

India´s Supreme Court has created an official third sex for its transgender eunuchs and announced they will have a quota of government jobs and college places to help them overcome discrimination. The decision was met with jubilation by transgender charities who said it was a milestone in their fight against marginalisation in Indian society. "We are elated and thankful to the court," said Kalki Subramanium, a leading transgender rights activist. "The decision has come after a century of suppression and marginalisation by the legal and social systems. "This verdict is certainly landmark and a new beginning. The biggest challenge is the social recognition.

At least 12 people are dead and more than 2,000 homes have been destroyed by a large fire that wreaked havoc over the weekend in Valparaiso, Chile. Some 10,000 people have been forced to evacuate parts of the port city. Government spokesman Álvaro Elizalde says those figures are likely to go up as the fire continues to burn. The fire has been driven by strong winds, and efforts to fight the flames also have been complicated by the area´s steep terrain and lack of essential infrastructure, as NPR´s Lourdes Garcia-Navarro reports for our Newscast unit. She adds: "This is a city built on

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
