The Growing Blue-State Diaspora
New York Times, by Robert Gebeloff & David Leonhardt

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 8/24/2014 5:30:41 AM

Californians have moved to Colorado and Nevada. Massachusetts natives have moved to New Hampshire. New Yorkers have moved to North Carolina and Virginia — and, of course, have continued moving to Florida. Over the last few decades, residents of many traditionally liberal states have moved to states that were once more conservative. And this pattern has played an important role in helping the Democratic Party win the last two presidential elections and four of the last six. The growth of the Latino population and the social liberalism of the millennial generation may receive more attention, but the growing diaspora of blue-state

I was weed whacking along my creek last summer here in the back woods of Appalachia when a car with New York plates pulled up. Some guy jumped out and asked for directions to a nearby park. His words were benign enough, but his tone of voice sounded like a threat.
I gave him the proper directions because it was the right thing to do, but remember hoping he would leave the state as soon as he was finished with his mugging or whatever he was here for.

Being in the construction materials business in Colorado during the 90s, we thought it was great that the influx of Californians were fueling our building boom. They were selling their $75,000 houses for 300-500 thousand and coming to Colorado to buy our $75,000 houses, banking the balance. Little did we know (and should have realized, they bring their politics and liberal agenda with them. Now, Colorado is pretty much ruined, going down the sewer just like California IMHO, much like #1 says.

Washington State was a target of these east coast vermin beginning in the 70´s. It was destroyed by them before it ever got on your radar with brain-dead marijuana. Democrat Destroyers foul their own nests with filth wherever they are and then move on to foul a new nest. Texas will pay a heavy price for recruiting California businesses to go there. Democrats are the founding destroyers of this Republic... they are not Americans... they are the root of our American evil.

How do they know it´s the liberals who are moving? Not everyone in a blue state is liberal. Maybe the conservatives are moving to get away from high taxes and other liberal policies.

As a conservative that left California for Arizona I observe that Liberals don´t connect their voting habits with the outcomes. The city of Tucson is on a death spiral but voters keep electing Democrats to the council and the Democrats do everything they can to drive business out of town. One would think that simple observation would suggest the need for change. No way.

The voters seem happy that Tucson worked hard to keep the F35 out of Davis Monthan (noisy, you know and... gasp military). Voters delighted in the fact that Tucson turned away a major campus of Grand Canyon University (Christian values, you know). The streets are a mess, you have to drive out of the city to shop (can´t have a new Walmart, no way).

The area around the University is ok except if you want a job. Oh, but we have a trolley! how exciting.

Having voted their original states into filthy, crime-infested, overcrowded, over-regulated, overpriced, economically depressed hellholes, which even they can no longer wallow in in comfort, they are heading off to nice places, which they will then turn into replicas of the liberal hells they left behind.

Great question #11. Unfortunately, the answer is that the most conservative people left in California are liberal by everyone else´s standard.

I have met plenty of transplants from California that complain about the liberal policies and laws there, but still only vote for Democrats. They just refuse to connect the dots. It is indeed a scourge on the state.

Now that we have legal pot, the floodgates are open. I hope California legalizes it soon, very soon.

Bob and Dave here are whistling past the blue city/ bi-coastal graveyard which is liberalism on parade.

What is not factored in to their speculation is that there is another year and a half ( or more?) of Obamonopoly left.

They came to California from elsewhere. They can darned well go back or go elsewhere. Most critics of California don´t take the trouble to read California´s political history. It was not always a blue state.

And they forget about Ronald Reagan, Pete Wilson, Deukmejian. Only a handful of governors were Dems over 100 years and two of them were Browns, father and son, serving repeat terms. Throw in the ill-fated Gray Davis and Culbert Olson, and that is it. And that is a statewide vote.

That said, this is the NYT´s attempt to make the Dems look stronger than they are. A feel good for next November?

True story: I was waiting at the butcher counter one day at a grocery store in North Carolina. Set up next to me was a little older lady who was there daily giving out free juice samples.

A lady, a customer, walked right up to her while I was standing there and said "I´m in here almost every day and you never offer me a sample. Is it because I´m from New York?"

The juice lady replied "Oh no honey. Let me give you a hug."

Not sure the lady from New York wanted a hug with her juice sample that day. But she got one. It´s all good.

We won´t miss them. Maybe we can get back to the good old days when California voted Republican:

With 55 currently, the state has more than 10% of all available electoral votes. While growth in the Latino population has helped make California a reliably Democratic state today, this was not always the case. In fact, from 1952 through 1988, Republicans won every presidential election except the landslide loss of Barry Goldwater in 1964.

http://www.270towin.com/states/California

Unlike other "traditionally" blue states, California was not always blue.

The NYT was trying to make downhearted Dems feel better, not to get us fighting with one another. Though they like that a lot, too.

Kansas Tea Party supporters are threatening to sit out the state’s pivotal Senate election, potentially dealing another blow to the reelection hopes of Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.). Though schisms within the GOP base rarely have such an outsized impact on a general election contest, the lack of support from the conservative base could be devastating to the vulnerable Roberts’s chances against surging independent Greg Orman. Multiple sources tell The Hill that a group of Tea Party leaders in the state are meeting Wednesday to try to decide whether they should go to bat for the incumbent this fall or sit out of

   

 



 
Suit: Black donor´s sperm

Chicago Tribune, by Meredith Rodriguez    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 10/1/2014 5:17:47 AM     Post Reply
A white Ohio woman is suing a Downers Grove-based sperm bank, alleging that the company mistakenly gave her vials from an African-American donor, a fact that she said has made it difficult for her and her same-sex partner to raise their now 2-year-old daughter in an all-white community. Jennifer Cramblett, of Uniontown, Ohio, alleges in the lawsuit filed Monday in Cook County Circuit Court that Midwest Sperm Bank sent her the vials of an African-American donor´s sperm in September 2011 instead of those of a white donor that she and her white partner had ordered.

The inhumane society

Americans love animals, even cats. Eight million stray dogs and cats find their way into animal shelters every year, and the lucky ones are adopted into a warm home with a loving family. Shelters are operated by small charities usually called “humane societies,” whose good deeds are funded by private generosity. The Humane Society of the United States trades on the good of others to finance a radical agenda. In May, the Humane Society and a handful of other radical animal-rights groups had to write a $15.8 million check to the Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus for damages done. The

Teenage girls who escaped the brutal clutches of ISIS terrorists have recounted a harrowing nightmare of beatings, torture, rape and degradation that included being forced to watch videos of men being beheaded. The girls, members of the persecuted Yazidi minority from northern Iraq, say they were captured and sold or given as gifts. “We would try to make ourselves look ugly,” an escaped girl, 15, told the Global Post news service. “Some women would cry or scream or fight, but it made no difference. They were always taken anyway,” She said they were debased so badly that death, even by suicide, was more

If there’s one major policy issue to the startup community, it’s noncompete clauses. Should they be legal? Should they be limited? On Monday, some members of that community were looking to get answers from Martha Coakley and Charlie Baker about their stances when the candidates for governor spoke to a tech- and startup-minded crowd in Cambridge. They didn’t get much. Noncompetes are a contractual tool with which employers can require new hires to agree not to work for a competitor for some time after they leave.

Well, that didn’t take long.

The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

America About to Dethrone Saudi

The U.S. shale boom is about to hit another big milestone, as it looks like fracking will propel American liquid petroleum production (that includes oil and natural gas liquids) past Saudi Arabia for the first time in nearly a quarter century. The FT reports: US production of oil and related liquids such as ethane and propane was neck-and-neck with Saudi Arabia in June and again in August at about 11.5m barrels a day, according to the International Energy Agency, the watchdog backed by rich countries. With US production continuing to boom, its output is set to exceed Saudi Arabia’s this month or

Investigators have recommended the government bar a Virginia company that employs a who’s who list of former powerful federal officials from getting contracts after they found employees at the Department of Veterans Affairs improperly tried to steer business to the firm. The VA’s inspector general said in a scathing report that Susan M. Taylor, deputy chief procurement officer for the Veterans Health Administration, “continually” lied about her dealings with FedBid, the well-connected reverse auction company whose advisers and employees include two former top White House procurement officials, a general and a former congressman.

Eric Holder´s political justice

Upon Attorney General Eric Holder´s resignation last week, NBC´s Chuck Todd made an odd comment: “[W]hat’s interesting about him, he is a very non-political person.” There may be merit to saying Holder has been more ideological than political, but it still seems like a strange thing to say about him. After all, his most famous act before his tenure as Attorney General had been to help arrange President Bill Clinton´s highly unusual and controversial last minute pardon of a wanted fugitive — mega-donor and billionaire Marc Rich. Holder not only recommended the pardon (calling himself “neutral leaning favorable”) but was also

The slogan of Delaware State University is “Making Our Mark on the World,” and a faculty member is doing just that by endangering the lives of thousands of people in Ebola-ravaged West Africa. As medical workers, bolstered by the U.S. military, struggle to contain a rapidly expanding epidemic, Prof. Cyril Broderick published a newspaper article in Liberia stating that the same military “manufactured” Ebola as a biological weapon and started the plague by testing it on Africans. Still more, Broderick, a plant biologist, asserts that some of the organizations battling Ebola — including the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, the World Health

Democrats think conservatives in general, and Tea Partiers in particular, are stupid. Here’s how to reinforce that belief: Sit out the 2014 congressional elections because your favorite candidate lost his primary bid to an establishment Republican. If you live in Kansas, for example, you can suck your thumb while Democrat ringer Greg Orman beats Republican Senator Pat Roberts. If you’re a Kentucky conservative, you can stay home and b***h about Mitch while Alison “Rubberstamp” Grimes heads to Washington. If you’re in Mississippi, you can stay mad at Thad and allow Travis “no repeal” Childers to win. That’ll show those RINOs! It

Just this week, two seemingly unrelated events unfolded, but they actually reveal a new liberal tactic. The Hillary Clinton Front-Group, American Bridge, filed a bogus federal complaint against Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and then a federal probe into New Jersey Governor Chris Christie found no evidence linking Christie to “Bridge-Gate.” Meanwhile, Texas Governor Rick Perry was indicted last month. Make no mistake, these events are related. Emerging is a new liberal tactic to gin up legal proceedings against conservatives and then use the media to amplify the investigations and make the officials look guilty.

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

President Obama shared an elevator earlier this month with an armed security contractor who has three felony convictions relating to assault and battery, in the latest report of a serious violation of Secret Service security protocols. Multiple sources confirmed to Fox News the incident, which took place in an elevator during Obama´s Sept. 16 visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The incident was first reported by The Washington Post and the Washington Examiner. The latest embarrassment for the Secret Service comes after agency Director Julia Pierson told lawmakers at a Tuesday hearing

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

Interviewed by the show "CNBC Meets," Carter repeated his belief that the failed mission to free American hostages held in Tehran killed his chances, but then added that had he gone to war, America would have rewarded him with a second term in 1980.

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

Dallas County went through a day-long anxiety attack Tuesday, waiting to hear if the first Ebola diagnosis in the nation would happen here.

The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS. For example, Deadline Hollywood didn’t even mention Obama’s 60 Minutes interview when reporting on the drop in viewers. “With no football lead-in, CBS’ Sunday lineup fell from last week. As expected, the drop was steepest at 7 PM, with 60 Minutes (1.1) off by 69%

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

Of course when William and Kate left the hospital with their bundle of joy, the proud royal parents had the moment to themselves, not
