I watched California transform into a welfare state....and left never to regain residency status.  The guvment helping people become helpless is NEVER a solution.  Never has the guvment been able to tax people into prosperity, it ALWAYS has the opposite effect.  Politicians who pander to the poor so they can get elected are in it for the power....nothing else.  And as long as people are stupid enough to keep voting these libtards into office, they'll always remain poor.  Tax and spend NEVER works.

Democrats win when the people are poor, conservatives win when the people prosper. That is the difference.

Democrats are like a parasite.  They vote for freebies, which leads to higher taxes, which leads to the workers moving out of state, which leads to the takers moving out of state.  Then they go vote Democrat in their new state and feed off the next host.

Well at least CT is good at something and Malloy wonders why half of the people in the state want to move. Tax and spend at it's best.

Democratic policies are destroying our nation’s cities. If the voters in these cities are happy being poor and having little to no prospect of leaving poverty, then they are electing the right people. If they’d like the opportunity to climb out of poverty and build a middle-to-upper class legacy for their family, then they could start by electing people in whose interest it is to see them prosper -- conservatives.

I know this is off topic, but because MSN is not allowing any comments on most of their left-wing agenda stories, for now, this is one of the few spaces they still allow comments.


Obama announced yesterday that he will be ignoring the Constitution (again) by going around Congress to promote his, and the UN's, radical Climate Change agenda scam


Here's what Obama and the UN want to do. It's all about taking control.


SOUNDS LIKE SCIENCE FICTION...OR SOME CONSPIRACY THEORY...BUT IT ISN'T.

UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development is the action plan implemented worldwide to inventory and control all land, all water, all minerals, all plants, all animals, all construction, all means of production, all energy, all education, all information, and all human beings in the world.  INVENTORY AND CONTROL.

The headline is very misleading, a more accurate description would be: 10 states where jackasses will rob you blind! (if you work for a living)

Democrats have learned they can get lots of votes, continue to be elected into office and stuff their own pockets with lots of cash by giving away lots of free stuff to people who do nothing to earn it.  Only problem is, you can't continue to give away lots of free stuff forever when there is no money coming in to pay for it all.  You can't continue to print off money to pay off debts when there is nothing propping up those newly printed dollars.  Sooner or later the bill collector comes calling, and looking at developments in the world, that debt collector is already knocking at the door. The United States will soon lose its coveted position with the US Dollar being the world's currency where the US is the ONLY nation able to print off money in the manner we do to sell it to other nations who wish to purchase items on the world market.  The US, our foolish politicians and the Federal Reserve (a bunch of wealthy bankers) have been abusing this power to increase profits for the wealthy. It will be the middle class and poor who end up with the bill.  But countries in Europe and Asia have been making deals with each other to purchase items using their own currency instead of paying the USA the 25% markup and purchasing US Dollars at $1.25 for every dollar they buy.  Talk has already begun to make the Chinese Yuan the new world currency, and when that happens, prices will skyrocket here in the USA and our government will no longer be able to print dollars to pay its debts and since our GDP doesn't even cover the interest on those debts, we as a nation are truly F'd!  Good thing for the whole world economy, this will allow the wealthy to mostly sidestep all responsibility for these debts even though they are mostly the cause, and like I said, leaving the paying of these bills to the rest of us.

63 years in one of the biggest Dumbocrat state NY, ran by the single moms and her kids collecting welfare payments that equal nearly 80k per year. Teachers, cops, firemen all making over 100k, free health care  benefits, retire in 20 years with a 60k NY state tax free pension. So first the business leaves, then the white middle class, and soon the only business in town are the schools, the jails, tat shops, cops riding around all day in cars, second hand store etc. Me I escaped to the Gunshine state cut my cost of living in half, and tell everyone in ear shot, never and I mean never vote for a Dumbocrat. And don't fall for we need more teachers to make our kids smarteri it won't happen, more cops to make you safer(ever been in any big north east city come on) etc.

 Modern democrats are like rats and cockroaches. We need to move away from having these people in government. Let them and their supporters either become contributors instead of takers or leave them to wither on the vine like the rotten tomatoes that they are.

 Democrat posters on here will tell you that the higher taxes is what makes these places better...Bullcrap!... If these places are so great why are all the jobs and a bunch of these know-it-all mouthy people moving to the beautiful south?

A dim, libtarded poster on newsvine once told me: They should take all republicans, teanuts and right wingers and put them on an island somewhere.... I agreed, that island would be the most successful country in the entire world in just a few short years....and then the dimwits could borrow money from it......

The question is can we deport the members of the dependency class from the red states so they can enjoy the services the states provide and import the jobs and industries that the high taxes and government regulations chase away?

Illinois should be ranked worse than it is. High state and sales taxes plus all the toll roads that taxes paid for.
