#1 No mention of the fact that not a few Mexicans are going home?

#2 No mention of the fact that not a few Mexicans are going home? Obama is doing something about illegal immigration. He's making the country so much worse they don't want to sneak in or stick around!

#3 I came to California following my job. Actually turned out pretty well. Can't blame those that are leaving though. Just don't blue up and fuck up the state you transplant too. You did that with Colorado and look at the shit it is in. Your policies failed for a reason. Leave them with the failed state and embrace new ones.

#5 raw population numbers are only part of the situation
the more important numbers are business relocations, business incorporations, professional license renewals

#6 Just don't blue up and fuck up the state you transplant too.
Saw a pic (likely photoshopped) of a West Texas billboard:
WELCOME TO TEXAS
Remember why you left home?
We don't do that here

#7 Yep, They immigrated, and home developed an inferior entitlement culture, I suspect they'll leave with it to parasite from other productive people.

#9 RE: The only true democracy is the ability to vote with your feet.
And move where? The UN is working hard to make sure "rich Americans" have no where to go, proposing new global taxes and regulations, even confiscating wealth to pay for their boondoggles. O is trashing the Constitution so America will no longer be an exceptional sovereign nation and we will no longer be a desirable destination for anyone and democratic mob rule will be controlled with hollow points.

#10 The auto-snark in all these articles has long since lost its humor value. It just makes them more cumbersome to read. I'd like to offer the suggestion that it be turned off in the new year.

The 'snark' was placed there to deflect the copyright trolls (think (R1ghthaven), and not for its "humor value".
If you're willing to foot the bill the next time Fred gets hit with a lawsuit, then it can be ditched. Otherwise, live with it (and knock off the spam repeated commentary).

#13 Hiring managers in other states need to pay to attention to the resume's of california refugees. If they worked at city, county, or state jobs for 10+ years, they're likely a lefty. Same for school teachers - you're better off hiring local teachers than importing them from California. Same idea with property managers - don't rent to anyone without a local job first - that should go a long way towards keeping the lefty vermin in their pen. It would also allow me to escape when my parents don't need me anymore. I pray there's still a place for me when I do get the opportunity.

#14 I like where I'm at in California (way out in the Mojave). That said, I'm still outa here.

#15 C'mon, people. Where do you go after they've ruined California? Snow? Brrrr. And whatever tax increases we get won't be as bad as paying for home heating oil. Heat and humidity? The missus would be miserable and then she'd make me miserable. And whatever tax increases we get won't be as bad as paying for AC. You can't find decent restaurants in flyover country. Well, maybe you can but I never could.
So I'm screwed.
Why do you think I was so pissed at Bush for letting all those illegals in here? I saw this coming. We got the D bomb, big time. But there was nothing I could do about.
Good luck, Texas. I don't know how many years behind California you are but I wouldn't be so smug if I were you.
