    I think you need to change your lean..... progressivism doesn't lend well to one party rule.


    Communism is more fitting for you is more fitting.... they're big on tyranny and crushing diversity of thought.

    I love it when conservatives tout Texas, a soon to be Democratic state, as the GOP fades into demographic obscurity within ten years.

    You guys will need to tout Alabama next.

    Keep ducking for cover, that's a heck of a smokescreen you got there. The thread is specifically about Texas and California. Alabama isn't mentioned at all.

    California is better you say? San Francisco disagrees.
    California has the fourth-highest cost of living in the nation at 132 percent of the national average. Texas has the second-lowest cost of living at 90 percent. Thus, California's $8 minimum wage can buy $6.06 of goods and services while Texas' $7.25 minimum wage can buy the equivalent of $8.04.
    But the census released a new Supplemental Poverty Measure that places California's poverty rate at 23.5 percent, the nation's highest, while dropping Texas' poverty rate to 16.5 percent. Proportionately, there are 42 percent more poor people in California than in Texas.
    A new government workers union (AFSCME) report says California has the third-highest income inequality gap in the nation with Texas ranked seventh. Had the report taken into account Texas' low cost of living, Texas would not have placed in the top 10 while California would have fared worse.

    California's Silicon Valley wealth was exported to China years ago.

    BTW, it was Texas based IBM that developed the PC, not Californians. You are posting your messages using Texas "intellectual property."

    California's $1.73 trillion economy remains, by far, the largest in the United States -- about 50 percent bigger than the Texas economy.

    No, although that might be a tea party wet dream, in fact, Silcon Valley remains the indespensible center of the US computer related industry.
