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.

#3 is right, no need to go trolling for trouble. They will eventually find their way to Texas if they have half a brain. keep their money out of your TX politics or you will become just like NC or worse CA.

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.

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

"The economy and the social aspects are indivisible to us," commented on Tuesday the Minister of Petroleum and Mining Rafael Ramírez. "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.

Fire Spreads Misery In Chile

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

Amnesty: President Obama often laments "our broken immigration system" as a reason for his failure to enforce its laws. But as a wave of illegals is about to descend here, the hard fact is that it´s his own policies that broke it. The nonpartisan Inter-American Development Bank and the Migration Policy Institute both reported optimal conditions for a big wave of illegal immigration into the U.S. from Mexico and Central America soon. Based on the slowdown in China´s economy, a recovery in U.S. low-skilled jobs such as construction, and rising U.S. interest rates, it´s fair enough.

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

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

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
