More and More Californians Leaving the State

The mass exodus from California continues. A recent census report found that hundreds of thousands of Californians migrated from the state in 2010.

Of the ten largest state-to-state-migration-flows, the move from California to Texas topped the list with nearly 69,000 people relocating to the Lone Star State. Other frequent out-of-state moves included; 47,000 to Arizona, 39,468 to Washington, and 35,472 to Nevada.

And while nearly 39,000 people relocated from Texas to California, the migration from California to Texas has been the most frequent state-to-state move since 2007.

The largest number came in 2007, when 78,310 people headed to the Lone Star State.

Enjoy yourselves! Texas??? There's a job at WalMart just waiting for you. And if you love high and uncontrolled property taxes, compensating for all of the NO-TAX corporate give-aways, it's the place to go! Did I mention Rick Perry, boy genius and racist in chief? Or the charge for your kids to ride the PUBLIC school bus? Yep. Yall come on down. Open Carry law, even into the court room? Oh, and there's been a horrible drought and it aint over.

At least they have a job, Walmart is better than nothing, which is hwat we have here. And there is no income tax in Texas, so that Walmart job will go 25% further than here.

I am ALL FOR open carry, and conceled carry. More guns= less crime.

If it were just the unemployed and underemployed who were leaving, that would be one thing. But too often it is the well-heeled and well-off retirees who are bailing out. I talk to people like that frequently and am always taken aback at how many are looking around at other states. Awareness of the lighter tax burden in neighboring states is high. And what all that means is fewer folks to pay our high sales taxes and high state income tax. Want to balance the state budget? Cool it on the tax hikes and look at reducing them. I know of those who have decamped to Nevada to avoid the California income tax. Multiply several thousand dollars a year by every one of them who leaves and is not replaced, and you can see the impact it has on state tax revenues.

If Texas charges for school buses, that's better than most local districts where they have dropped all buses to middle and high schools. At least Texas still has them available.

CA MUST stop raising the sales tax. It is unfair to the poor and totally out of control as it is.

And Browns plan to DOUBLE it by adding it to servies is unacceptable, sorry that plan liek Prop D here is DOA.

taxes properly spent by government and not improperly handle would be OK with me

but that would be asking 2 much wouldn't it..lol

Texas is a good state to live in. So is California. Those people that left weren't Californians, and they won't be Texans. They'd move to Michigan if they thought they'd get a better job there. Who cares? I mean, unless Texas (with a larger land mass) suddenly becomes more populous than California, then we still win. I just wish the rivalry was more, well, civilized, or humorous. Like, they produced the (arguably) worst President in history (Bush the Younger). Yet we provided the only one that left office in disgrace (Nixon). Who wins? And, if you're living in San Diego, what do you have to complain about? You must be bored to care about this news.

Not to be picky, but good ol boy GDub was "produced" in Connecticut, not Texas.

Dubya was born in CT, but raised in Midland and Houston, TX.

I have one friend who moved to the Austin area of Texas. He was able to buy a nicer home for far less money than San Diego. Thing is, he still works for his employer in San Diego via the internet (telecommuting). I also know people who are doing that from Washington State. For many people, the state line and jobs are immaterial. They keep their job, but save on taxes by leaving the state of California. (Washington State does not have an income tax as well).

And don't forget, at least according to his son, Ca. gave the country a President who learned his chops, both as an actor and politician(really the same thing aren't they)and was suffering at least the early stages of dementia while in office.

Nov. 30, 2011

And your point about him is?

Nov. 30, 2011

I've not previously heard of Ca. being referred to by gender, so I'm unsure as to which "him" your question refers.

Dec. 1, 2011

It refers to the president to whom you referred.

Dec. 1, 2011

Wasn't providing commentary on Reagan, only pointing out the fact another POTUS learned his stuff in Ca. even though he wasn't "produced" in Ca. (no pun intended, considering the acting part of the resume).
