-but 43,000 Texans moved to California.
Oh dorky one
I see you continue to publish your socialist rubbish on this page. Tut tut ,that's what happens after a dozen or more yrs in a uni such as MIT. What a shame ,what a waste of talent.
You know what ?There was some young, US physics theorist before me on my TV today .The geek had the effrontery to appear in a PONYTAIL! Gad ,what a scandal.
But as to Texas vs CA. OF COURSE people will move to the Golden State .It has beaches ,better climate ,vineyards and "culture". If you have the dough ,why not move?
PSssst EXC and PM are going well for me.
His half sister and neighbor in Indonesia, both said he attended the local Mosque every day.
In a speech in Oregon he said he had been in almost every one of the 57 states. Coincidentally
That was the number of Islamic states. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm,mmmmmmmmmmm
Whadayathink? Of course he says he was never a Muslim and is a Christian.
He also said 'If you like your plan you can keep it PERIOD(for emphasis)'
By the bye what church does he attend in DC now. (crickets chirping)
YES, and the UNaffordable CareLESS act is a big f----ing deal , said one idiot to the other
Doper Idiot. How is that working out for the fools?
So predictable from the liberal loons,it is GWBushes fault. It never fails when the libs want to change the subject about an obvious failure of the Doper, it is Bush's fault.
Spin Bushes fault. Hilarious that they will not admit he is an idiotic failure as 58% of the populous now agrees. LOL

Hey, do you really want to push my buttons, rodent? Shoot yourself in the head. That'll REALLY get my goat! "
Oh come on now Al, we're still buds aren't we? No need to get nasty just because I had you wrap so tight that you couldn't f@rt if you wanted to.
BTW, no one mentioned any law suits except you, I merely referenced some post by someone who was naive enough to post them on a public MB and you swallowed it hook, line and sinker..
Here fishy, fishy, fishy............................ 8-)
Let's talk about laziness:
(Dec 17, 2001) President George W. Bush made 9 visits to his Texas ranch, spending all or part of 69 days there during his first year in office. Mr. Bush also made 25 visits to Camp David in 2001 totaling 78 days.
(Dec 24, 2009) So far, President Obama has taken only 15 vacation days. He had a four-day weekend at home in Chicago last February and spend eight days on Martha's Vineyard in August.Since taking office, President Obama has made 11 visits to Camp David, spanning all or part of 27 days. They're mostly weekends and cannot fairly be counted as vacations.
So then...Mr Bush took over 4x vacation days in direct comparison to President Obama.
(Actually, since Cheney was the de facto prezident, Bush was largely irrelevant...until the 2004 election cycle.)
True, he should have said "47 states;" at the time (May 2008) he was campaigning in Oregon and hadn't been to Hawaii or Alaska.
Quote: "it is just wonderful to be back in Oregon, and over the last 15 months we've traveled to every corner of the United States. I've now been in fifty .... seven states? I think one left to go. One left to go. Alaska and Hawaii..."
Obviously, he had more than "one left to go" on his campaign trail. Equally evident, Obama was running on fumes at this point and exhausted. He admits as such:
Talking with reporters at a later campaign stop, Senator Obama expressed concern that he'd recently misstated both the number of potential victims of a recent cyclone in Burma and the number of states he'd visited, saying: "I hope I said 100 thousand people the first time instead of 100 million. I understand I said there were 57 states today. It's a sign that my numeracy is getting a little, uh ..."
GW Bush otoh referred to Africa as a nation MONTHS after having been appointed prezident (and after having taken at least 2 vacations)
"We spent a lot of time talking about Africa, as we should. Africa is a nation that suffers from incredible disease." --Dumbya in Sweden, June 14, 2001
"As for people fleeing California for Texas, well...here are the real numbers: In 2012, 63,000 Californians did move to Texas - -but 43,000 Texans moved to California. So that means the net loss was 20,000, or about 0.05% of California's population. At that rate, it would take 20 years for Texas to steal 1% of CA's people."
The more interesting statistic is this... Take that 63,000 number and divide by the population of California. Then take the 20,000 number and divide by the population of Texas. These two ratios are around the same. So about the same fraction of Texans moved to California as the fraction of Californians who moved to Texas.
Remember “The Texas Miracle”? It was the story of how Rick Perry was going to be president because his state, Texas, was doing so much better than all the other states. Texas was doing so well, we were told, because it was very conservative: Low taxes, light regulation, and few pesky unions. We were supposed to compare Texas to California, which, we were told, was an apocalyptic mess because it was run by liberals.
Then we sort of stopped hearing about The Texas Miracle for a while, because Rick Perry forgot how to count and it no longer seemed like he was personally responsible for managing the economy of his vast state, but conservatives still enjoy telling themselves that Texas proves that their economic policy preferences are objectively superior to those of liberals. Except, well, maybe Texas isn’t that miraculous.
Texas’ growth is fueled primarily by the energy boom and by population growth. And that population growth is not happening because people from other states are fleeing to Texas to avoid high taxes and onerous regulations, but because of immigration from Mexico and a high birthrate. More importantly the spoils of the Texas miracle have not been shared equally: Economic mobility is higher in California’s major urban areas than in those of Texas. Plus: “Texas has more minimum-wage jobs than any other state, and only Mississippi exceeds it with the most minimum-wage workers per capita.” Texas is falling behind various states in terms of per capita income.
As for people fleeing California for Texas, well...here are the real numbers: In 2012, 63,000 Californians did move to Texas - -but 43,000 Texans moved to California. So that means the net loss was 20,000, or about 0.05% of California's population. At that rate, it would take 20 years for Texas to steal 1% of CA's people.
And one more thing -- Texas is a "low tax" state only if you are rich. Thanks to regressive sales and property taxes, the bottom 60% in Texas actually pay MORE taxes than in CA.
"What/who is a Toothy J e W?
I thought J's were known for their bignoses and for denying and then betraying Jesus. This legal/dental dispute is new to me.
Do J's have more teeth than gentiles? Do some J's have more teeth than other J's? Are we taking about number or quality?
"that lawn jockey"
Nope, no racism here!
"and his Howdy Doody puppet VP"
The role of the VP is to support the President, so being a "puppet" is a tacit part of the job.
That said, Joseph R. Biden (Uncle Joe!) is among the most awesome VPs ever. His inability to self-edit adds honesty to his list of virtues (although for that same reason I can't see him functioning in any diplomatic capacity).
Plus, the ladies love him:
MensHealth (10/24/2012) "Why the Ladies Love Joe Biden"
He Speaks His Mind (true)
He Laughs at Himself (true)
He Does What He Wants (??)
He’s Funny (true)
He's Got the Hair (yeah no I don't think so)
Biden's got game.
The only concession he got was my buddy crafan to stop posting. CF had to explain to the Sr. VP and the partners of prestigious law firm the answer to "What/who is a Toothy J e W?
( It's a LOT harder than it sounds!)
That is harsh.
Here's hoping there's a giant mudslide in Escazu this spring.

As usual, stinky just makes something up.
Perhaps, he will claim I shorted Tesla.

an illegal alien janitor would do a better job running this country than that lawn jockey and his Howdy Doody puppet VP.....impeach the entire administration
That's so funny, I just ran out and kicked 45 pregnant women in the abdomen.
Let the miscarriages begin!
