BUT IT’S ALL ABOUT FAIRNESS: 144,000 households, 1 percent of taxpayers, pay half of California’s income taxes. Bottom line? Not many people will need to flee California before Jerry ‘Moonbeam’ Brown starts wondering where all the rich people who are supposed to bend forward went. Hint – Nevada has no personal income tax folks and it’s right next door.

There’s a great cartoon in the local paper today, It shows Jerry dressed Like Moses standing on a cliff saying “We raised taxes and it won’t hurt”, and underneath the cliff are dozens of businessmen running and two of them saying “Texas is this way”…..

U-Hauls and Ryder trucks are becoming scarce in Kalifornia. My neighbors son runs a Van line franchise, business out of Kalifornia has never been better for him…a lot of runs to Texas, Colorado, and other states, and the people that are leaving, conservatives by and large bitching out how Kalifornia is f*cked. No wonder Republican voter reg is down to 30 percent..Everyone is leaving so the liberals can ride the California Death Spiral all the way down…

And the current proposition would jack that portion up to 80%.

Moonbeam thinks the federal taxpayers are going to bail him out. Only thing that will help is the forthcoming confiscation of all pensions private/public, which will be announced the day after barry’s inauguration.
By then, those 144K folks need to be gone, or they will be stuck there!

If California could’nt get federal tax dollars, they would make Greece look good. I effing hate CA, I hate what it’s becoming, & I hate what it’s doing to this nation.

Only 50%? They ought to pay 100%! I mean, they had the audacity to make money, so they ought to pay their fair share!*

*Fair Share defined as the amount needed to buy enough votes to keep the current regime in power

I’m resigned to the fact. Seriously, at this point, I couldn’t care less about me. But I will fight tooth and nail for my girls and future grands, that scares the s*%t out of me, what’s being left for them.

It gets worse, heard rumors about taxes on 401K and IRA accounts here recently. Sad part is even that won’t do jack shit at the rate they’re spending.

Close your accounts and pay the penalty. You’ll end up way ahead.

I have so little patience for liberals who say GOP must reach out to minorities but also claim anything conservatives do is “racist.”

You have got… you have got to be kidding. This has got to be a joke… deadbeats standing on the backs of working people AND a considerable few… it is disgusting.
