I got news for Grover: no one moves out of California no matter how I wish they would.

The Moar You Know Says:

Norquist knows itís over. He was on the local LA radio the morning after the election and he was PISSED that Prop 30 (we had to vote to raise our own taxes to keep the schools open this year) had not only passed but passed by a fairly substantial vote. He should be pissed. He was such a dick about it, in fact, that the host, whoís a closet wingnut himself, had to finally cut him off as he basically just started insulting Californians, calling us stupid, and saying that everyone would move out of the state.

I got news for Grover: no one moves out of California no matter how I wish they would.
As goes California so goes the nation, and thatís why Grover was so angry. He knows thereís not much time left to run his scam.

1. Not true

Texas (yeah, those guys) are actively courting California business and counting coup when they win. Its in the media in the DFW area.

3. +1

Californians have been heading here in droves for years. Whatever their reasons.... taxes, cost of living, jobs, whatever. Lots of CA transplants in DFW and Texas generally.

2. IIRC, from 2007-09 there was negative population growth in CA, as more people

 

were leaving than entering due to the extremely severe unemployment rates here and high costs of living.
