Let me first admit to stealing the headline of this article from my brilliant wife. I was telling her about John Fund’s article in the Wall Street Journal about a bunch of California legislators going to Texas to meet with businessmen to find out why they had moved from the Golden State to the Lone Star State.
Her immediate question was “Are they that dumb in California.” What a simply elegant question. It says it all. Of course the answer is that yes, they are that dumb in California. Gov. Jerry Brown just signed another law that will send even more businesses out of California in the next few years.
The law he signed forces power companies, under penalty of fines, to produce about thirty percent of the electric power they sell be generated by renewal energy sources by the year 2020.
That is perfect timing for businesses voting with their businesses location headquarters….in other words their feet. It will give them time to choose another location for their headquarters in a state other than California. Texas just happens to be the top ranked business-friendly state. What this trip by the legislators really necessary to ask why businesses are leaving California. What is the saying: “If you have to ask……”
Fund compares the two states. “The contrast is undeniable. Texas has added 165,000 jobs during the last three years while California has lost 1.2 million. California's jobless rate is 12% compared to 8% in Texas.”
The results of the California experiment is that other states will benefit. The last census reported for the first time in history California lost population and with the new laws being passed and signed by the Democrat majority; look for that trend to speed up.

Thank Heaven for California. We need more citizens in our state who are good social conservatives, constitutional advocates and who want their children protected from idiots who sit in seats of power in Sacramento.
They’ve gone and done it again. The legislature has voted to require the teaching of gay history to children who don’t even know what “gay” means. But it’s another reason for those who need a reason to leave the state.
The legislators and governors of the “Golden” state (including that former govenator, a pathetic, sorry, egotistical dipstick) have also been driving out residents at an amazing pace with their eco-regulations, water restrictions for farmers, elimination of more any more energy sources adding huge energy costs and generally “moonbeam,” pie-in-the-sky, rainbow legislation.
The fortunately things is that those moving are usually more affluent, educated and conservative so other states benefit.
For the first time in history, the number of Californians has gone down in the last census. That trend will undoubtedly continue with legislators there recruiting for those who live the gay lifestyle. It was very apparent with the gay marriage vote on proposition 8 showed the dividing line on the issue.
That vote also reveals that a high number of Californians will continue to vote with their feet. Come on over Californians, we would love to have you, but please remember to leave the liberal politics when you packup to go.

Katherine Windels, the Wisconsin school teacher who suggested that a bullet be put in the heads of Republican legislators who voted to eliminate collective bargaining is the face of Wisconsin teachers. Is this the lesson of hate she wants to teach the children of Wisconsin, that it is all right to threaten to murder?
She is what unionized teachers have become. They don’t care about children; they only care about their union and union power.
I certainly wouldn’t want someone who suggests murdering people with whom she disagrees getting anywhere near my children or grandchildren. I hope the judge in the case applies the maximum penalty to show that this is not the kind of person who should be anywhere near children in any capacity.
The cacophony of leftist rhetoric that flooded the airwaves and printed page about an alleged and later disproven connection between Jared L. Loughner and certain radio hosts was deafening. Loughner shot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, an Arizona Democrat, leaving her critically wounded and killing six others.
While there was no evidence that Loughner was connected to either side of the political spectrum, Windels is a whole different story. She and her wish to kill someone with whom she disagrees is a threat to all people of Wisconsin because she is on the left and is obviously influenced by the vicious and vindictive rhetoric of the left from Ed Schultzes of MSNBC, Bill Maher’s increasingly bizarre anti-conservative hate speech and the hate speech of the Wisconsin teacher union.
The conclusion can only be: keep Windels away from children, she is obviously a threat as was Loughner, but she IS connected to the hate speech of the left.
