    Not at all. But your post certainly is.

    I'm looking at ever increasing taxation. A public debt that is out of control. Infrastructure that is crumbling, and employment base that is concentrated in only two industries.

    Less than 7,000 people were responsible for contributing 20% of the total income tax revenue received by the state in 2017. What happens when those 7,000 people don't have the massive capital gains and incomes that created such taxable income.

    California has some of the highest taxes and fees in the nation, perhaps the largest income inequality, the highest supplemental poverty rate, and education system ranked at or near the bottom in the Nation.

    And critically, a corrupt state government that has created a one party state.

    California is doomed. To ignore all the facts is simply the result of an emotional response to a critical problem.

    Some WA Counties are adapting the concept of sanctuary cities as a means to resist gun control legislation.

    California is in the middle of the pack debt-wise, but below national average. Texas has slightly higher debt (State+local) problem than California.

    Dallas is ground zero for the Indian take-over of US businesses. Shame on them.

    Texas has no debt problem. In fact, we have s “rainy day fund” to cover emergencies like hurricanes.

    Indians from India.

    I thought it was obvious.

    I have a client there where a good 95% of the IT department are from India, all the way from coders to supervisors, managers, directors and VPs.

    US Citizens who love sovereignty and protection from foreign invasion should be appalled by the treasonous support of subjugation to foreign nationals expressed in the actions of the government officials in LA County and California.

    Subjugation...... Hard to take your posts seriously when you make comments like that.

    Not true at all.

    California's estimated total debt exceeds $1.3 trillion. They are fond of ignoring the unfunded pension liabilities of CalPers and CalStrs.

    https://calmatters.org/articles/california-teacher-pension-debt/
    https://californiapolicycenter.org/californias-total-state-local-debt-totals-1-3-trillion/

    Further, they borrowed against various funds and have not paid back the money...

    You haven't refuted my point that poorer Jesusland states...

    ... are getting tax dollars through the federal government.

    You should let the people you don't like go. :)

    Yes, because that’s where the military bases are. Ditto NASA.

    Who said I hate them?

    Accusing others of hatred is an old liberal tactic.

    I think it is very unfortunate high paying / high tech jobs in US have been surrendered to foreigners. Unfortunately this is the kind of 'merit based' immigration the Donald Trump admin promotes.

    Sure, you charge massive property taxes instead (more than double of California). Every State collects their taxes one way or another. Florida doesn't have income tax either, but the property tax millage rates are quite high, especially in urban areas where the jobs are.
