Westward bound! More and more Americans

Tracking statistics from the moving company United Van Lines indicate that Americans are still heading west, while parts of the Northeast and Midwest are losing people. On Tuesday the suburban St. Louis-based moving company released its 41st annual National Movers Study, which tracks customers´ state-to-state migration patterns. Three of the top four destination states are in the West including Oregon, Idaho and Nevada. (Map) However Vermont, a Northeast state, had the highest percentage of inbound migration in 2017. About 68 percent of state-to-state moves in Vermont were inbound last year. At the other end of the spectrum is Illinois, which

Don´t count on them heading all the way west. Too many will settle in fly-over land and bring their plagues with them.

This is based upon moving company statistics. For those who don’t like to read, there is a map graphic that shows in colors what the report is talking about. How simple is that?

I found far too many people in NYC and in New Jersey to be arrogant and rude when I visted there in the early 70´s. I sure it is far worse now. The left coast is bad enough without the invasion by the East coast. The left coast is going to end up in the deep blue sea.

The problem is that the Northeasterners (sp?) totally devastate their own state with outrageous taxes on everything including transit (who can afford an automobile, gas, insurance and the tolls and the bridge costs?) They impose draconian and far reaching regulations in all areas so it is virtually impossible to open a business. Would make Lenin and Marx smile. Worse, they carpetbag their super-leftist, socialist ideas from the northeast to where ever they land. With relocating to WA or OR, they will be in for a surprise because when the CA migration occurred in the 90s, the property values exploded because CA migrants could afford the low-priced mansions. While New Yorkers and Jersiates have their arrogance and rudeness, those in the Northwest are highly intolerant of any one who is not a vegan, wears leather, bathes, likes Trump, the Bushes, RR and Thatcher. Also, the Portland and Seattle freeway traffic is so bad, that it makes CA traffic on the 405 and 10 freeways look like the expressway.

In Florida it´s pretty much too late. You see almost as many NY, NJ, and MA license plates down here as you do FL markers. Half the population on the FL east coast sound like extras on a Sopranos episode, and they all bring their peculiar brand of politics (as well as their horrible driving) with them.

They´re fleeing the Northeast but trying to turn this area into what they just fled, little realizing that it was those very same policies that made their home states so unliveable in the first place.

These people ain´t got the sense God gave a chicken...

When someone reads the article and looks at the map, they’ll see that five of the states with the highest outbound numbers are Ohio, Kentucky, Illinois, Kansas and Utah.

Surprisingly for some, California is balanced as to inbounds and outbounds.

United Van Lines is not even in the top ten list of California moving companies.

The other 99% of California moving companies are reporting an exodus out of the state.

Idaho is actually the 2017 destination state.

California will soon haveonly the homeless and the illegals as residents.

You see what Jerry Brown is doing to the people of California with his new taxes?

And don´t bother moving to Oregon either. There is no housing here.

Just to let any potential movers know, it was -27 degrees here Monday, -43 with the wind chill. You surely do not want to come anywhere near the state of Montana. it is not warm here, and global warming has shrunk the sky so nothing to see.

Vermont isn´t doing that well either. The state has been losing 1500-2000 people a year, due to taxes, the high cost of housing, energy, and lack of high-paying jobs. Most of the inbounds are snowbirds, not workers. College graduates and retirees are moving to areas with better job prospects and lower costs. The state is driving large employers out, and New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and New York are drawing customers away from Vermont businesses with lower prices and sales taxes.

Outtakes from the historic Apollo 11 moon landing have emerged 49 years after it occurred. Provided by NASA to the Project Apollo Archive, a project of self-proclaimed space enthusiast Kipp Teague, the images are sometimes not focused, others times look like accidental captures. Teague, who has made scans of the images and published them to Flickr, has some of the most well-known photographs on his site including the astronauts´ boot prints on the moon and collecting various soil samples and rocks. However, the new images provide readers with a behind-the-scenes, detailed view of the eight-day journey. The set of photos

Trump will make remarks at the event, which will feature manufacturers and their products from across the country. Vice President Pence, several cabinet secretaries and other administration officials will attend the event throughout the day, White House deputy press secretary Lindsay Walters confirmed to The Hill.

The White House said Sunday that a small plane that the military intercepted because it flew near President Trump’s New Jersey golf resort was deemed not a threat by law enforcement officials. A U.S. Air Force F-16 fighter jet on Saturday intercepted a small, general aviation plane near Trump´s private golf resort in Bedminster, where the president stayed this weekend. Lindsay Walters, a White House spokeswoman, said the plane had entered a “no-fly” space too close to the golf resort. Law enforcement officials interviewed the pilot upon landing, and determined he was not a threat. “As is standard practice in

One disastrous tweet has finally revealed Elon Musk for what he is: a fraud. Enraged that a British cave diver called his idea to rescue the Thai soccer team for what it was — “a p.r. stunt [with] absolutely no chance of working” — Musk took to Twitter and called him a “pedo.” Just like that, Tesla’s market value plummeted by $2 billion. Musk has been in business since 2002. His stated goal is nothing short of transforming humanity through his products: his electric cars, space travel, and an underground high-speed Hyperloop system. He has yet to succeed at anything but somehow spins every

Nearly two years ago, I moved with my daughter, who was then 7, from Yonkers to a small town in Pennsylvania. It’s minutes outside of New Jersey, but right in the heart of Donald Trump’s America. Sixty-one percent of the people in my county voted for him. Drive through most communities in my town and you’ll still see large blue Trump campaign signs on perfectly manicured lawns. Chances are, you’ll spot at least two newer-model pickup trucks with Confederate flag license plate frames. As I, a black woman, move through my daily routine, I exchange nonverbal social pleasantries with my neighbors

CLEARWATER — Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri announced Friday that his agency will not arrest a man deputies say shot and killed another man during an argument over a handicap parking space. The incident falls under Florida’s self-defense law known as "stand your ground," the sheriff said during a news conference. The law gives immunity to those in fear of their lives who use force to defend themselves. The shooting "is within the bookends of ‘stand your ground’ and within the bookends of force being justified," the sheriff said, later adding, "I’m not saying I agree with it, but I don’t make
