Californication Spreading

Having fouled up California with their failed socialist policies, the locusts are abandoning ship.

Since the days of the Gold Rush, California has represented the Promised Land, an image celebrated in the songs of the Beach Boys and embodied by Silicon Valley's instant millionaires and the young men and women who achieve stardom in Hollywood.
But for many California families last year, tomorrow started somewhere else.
The number of people leaving California for another state outstripped the number moving in from another state during the year ending on July 1, 2008. California lost a net total of 144,000 people during that period — more than any other state, according to census estimates. That is about equal to the population of Syracuse, N.Y.

Unfortunately, they tend to bring their voting patterns with them.

tell me about it - I live in AZ and they spill over here speculating in houses/property, bring with them their driving habits which are wonderful if you enjoy parking lot freeways, their desire to screw up the politics because they can't make up their minds with regards the issues and yet they tend to promote the basis for some of the worst reforms to get on the ballots...reforms which get worded in ways that confuse the voters. Kind of like the Discovery of the New Lands & How the Europeans had to civilize the savages.
