    Default California legislature super majority

    To my friends in California, this was somewhat lost during the watching of the presidential election. The Dems now have a super majority in the California congress combined with that lunatic Jerry Brown. This means they can do whatever they want and there will be no way to stop them. This has not happened for many many decades and the balance of power is now totally in Dem control.

    You guys know whats coming. Higher taxes, total gun control SB249, increased welfare, increases illegal immigration as they give more free government cheese out, etc... This is just what this screwed up state needed and when you combine it with all the fed stuff coming down the pike with O and the clown posse for another 4 years, well, to say we are F'ed is an understatement. Goodbye middle class...

    California is screwed. The drones that think taxing those at $250,000.00 is going to solve our fiscal problems, have been dumbed down by our education system, the Progressives, the Marxists, and the Democratic Party. They encourage illegals to vote, which gives them the base and command of our State. Very sad for working, taxpaying middle class.

    Business and individuals will continue to move out of state. Jerry Brown is a disaster.

    I have family that's lived in California for over 40 years, just retired and moved to OK. Retired California school teachers. Conservatives.

    I think thats another problem of the right. While the left panders to hyphenated Americans, the right tends to genralize and ignorantly label hyphenated Americans which is and can be as offensive , as pandering to a hyphenated American.

    Stigma is hard to break.

    All I have to say is when Cal bellies up they better not give them 1 cent of federal taxpayers money. Go bankrupt, sell it all off I could care less. Cal made it's bed now it can sleep in it.
    If you voted for Obama to prove you were not racist, then you better find someone else to vote for to prove your not stupid.

    I have lived in California 65 years. Thinking seriously about selling my house, taking my pickup, my gun, my dog and moving to a red state. Just haven't figured where. Us old folks don't care for very cold weather, so Utah, or south.

    Yesterday, Feinstein was already asking for the ban of assault rifles, high cap mags and pistol grips. Unfortunately that's coming on a Federal level so we're all going to be fighting that fight, but here in CA it's going to be a easy win for them, now.

    They don't understand what they are doing. Meanwhile, conservative states are doing well. They don't see it. For some reason they think if they do the same thing only more, they'll get a better result.

    I grew up in California. I moved to Seattle, back to California, and now to Utah for my company. I couldn't be happier.

    Look it up, several reports have shown that upper middle class and high income ppl are leaving this state. Our population has not gone down only due to births and illegal immigration. I for one will not retire here and I do encourage my children to think about out of state colleges (they are only 11 and 14 but am planting the seed) I believe if they go out of state for college they find out how much better other parts of this country are and have no desire to come back. (especially if mom and dad arent here

    Our son went to the University of Utah. Excellent college. In state tuition was about $5000 a year. We wanted him to go out of state as well. We were hoping for Carroll College in Montana. He wanted Long Beach State where his cousins went. We were glad when he went to the U of U. He is too.

    Shortly afterwards, can you say bye bye to what little business is there? I knew a lot of people in Seattle that lost their homes because they started raising property taxes like crazy. We lived their for six years in the late 80's early 90's. Our property taxes started out at $2100 a year. By the time we left it was $3400. We still talk to our friends from the old neighborhood and they say that they're paying $5500 now. The difference is that they have no state income tax. California will have a state sales tax, state income tax, and high property taxes in a few years. And not much revenue from business.

    California is nothing but a welfare state and an immigrant sanctuary state. Big business is all but gone. Welfare programs eat up a huge portion of the budget and they get bigger and bigger every year. Now with fewer businesses and honest tax payers in the state, we (middle class and small business mainly) are burdened with ever growing taxes on frickin everything. Wait till he Dems get rid of prop 13 now and see what your real estate taxes jump up to? Probably 3-4 times what you pay now. Mark my words on this, it is coming for sure.
