CALIFORNIA TRIES TO COUNTERACT RESIDENTS FLEEING INCREASED TAXES. Sounds like Moonbeam wants to turn California into East Germany with landmines and barbed wire fences to keep slaves residents and companies from fleeing. Watch the Dumbdems in Sacramento finally ‘counteract’ this problem by raising taxes again. Eleventy!

Phil ha been hawking a drug for treatment of Psoriatic Arthritis. I expect that is the basis for most of his retirement talk. And if he retires, he would no longer have a lot of income, unless he starts working with one of the media outlets. So essentially he is looking at a limited income being taxed right out from under him, along with ongoing medical bills etc for the next 40 years or so. No wonder he is considering moving to an area with a lower cost of living, lower taxes, etc. And doesn’t he still have kids at home? Another drain on finances, regardless of how much he loves them. I think he is being smart.

From Drudge, about golfer Phil Mickelson…

Phil Mickelson says changes coming because of taxes

Phil Mickelson says changes are coming because of taxes and how they affect his family. Is Lefty considering retiring? He won’t turn 43 until June.

Scott Michaux first reported that Mickelson said he was considering retirement after his final round Sunday at the Humana Challenge.

You should read his entire transcript. I’ve picked out a few of the more interesting quotes below.

Q: When you’re asked about Stricker’s semi-retirement, with the political situation the last couple months … what did you mean by that? Do you find it an unsettling time in a way?

Phil Mickelson:

Well, it’s been an interesting offseason. And I’m going to have to make some drastic changes. I’m not going to jump the gun and do it right away, but I will be making some drastic changes.

Q: Meaning leaving from California?

Mickelson:

I’m not sure.

Q. Moving to Canada?

Mickelson:

I’m not sure what exactly, you know, I’m going to do yet. I’ll probably talk about it more in depth next week. I’m not going to jump the gun, but there are going to be some. There are going to be some drastic changes for me because I happen to be in that zone that has been targeted both federally and by the state and, you know, it doesn’t work for me right now. So I’m going to have to make some changes.

Q: So why do you say next week? What is going to happen so drastic next week?

Mickelson:

No, but I’ll probably be in the media center and I’ll probably be a little more open to it because San Diego is where a lot more things, it’s where I live, it’s where the Padre thing was a possibility, and it’s where my family is. And it just seems like a better fit than right here off of 18 on Palm Springs.

Q: Is it a stance that you are taking because on the one hand, you’ve made a lot of money, and no matter how much they take out, you are left with a lot of money?

Mickelson:

Yeah. I’ll probably go into it more next year or next week. But if you add up, if you add up all the federal and you look at the disability and the unemployment and the Social Security and the state, my tax rate’s 62, 63 percent. So I’ve got to make some decisions on what I’m going to do.

Again, check out Michaux’s post for the rest of the transcript — he references the PGA Tour retirement plan and how it plays into this as well.

And you guys thought Tiger Woods’ 2013 PGA Tour debut was going to dominate the news next week.

…it sounds like the question of “Who is John Gault?” may be answered in part by the politically conservative PGA Tour. These guys have the profile to do it, that is for damn sure.

Not to worry, right after all the taxpayers leave California then they can put up the barbed wire fences and turn it into the penal colony this state has become.

I think I made that suggestion a few years ago, If I recall, Mr Ed wasn’t too happy with the idea then. Mayhaps, he has chaged his mind now that he is ready to move.

Leaving California is becoming an increasingly attractive option for many people. It’s a good idea to leave Jerry Brown and his rotten, corrupt Democrat party behind. But please, also leave behind your big government, high tax, unionized public employees and left-wing public education ideas. We don’t need the California sickness spreading throughout the nation.

Kalifornia=Fubar and will be until the liberals are gone..since there are way tooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo many stupid freebie collecting leaches in the big cities and they will continue to be bought off by democraps, this will never change, I say put up a fence and warning signs before you enter the state:

Welcome to the Peoples Republic of Kalifornia, bad roads, high crime, extreme taxes and idiot legislators, hide your wallet and enter at your own risk.
