    The Obama loving Liberals now have a supermajority in the California Legislature so the permanent destruction is virtually assured.

    However, California is NOT the 8th largest economy, but has sunk to the 11th. The unemployment rate is NOT dropping faster than Texas, nor is it as low as Texas. I don't believe you can show the bit about having a better educated workforce.

    So, as I said, none of what you posted is true (any longer).

    As I said, I've already gone into the details on this in a number of other threads. Believe what you want.

    Perhaps you were using old numbers. The links to current info are right here in this thread.

    But here's some more recent info for you (btw, I was incorrect as were you - Cali is not 8th or 11th, but 9th).

    Report: California slips to world's 9th largest economy

    California has long had an economy larger than most nations, but nominal growth has once again seen it slip on the top 10 list.

    The state dropped to ninth on the list of world’s largest economies as measured by gross domestic product in 2010, according to a report this month from the Center for Continuing Study of the California Economy.

    Brazil, with a 2010 GDP of $2.1 trillion, took the eighth spot from California ($1.901 trillion). India was 10th, at $1.7 trillion.

    Source
    It also should be noted that California has been slipping steadily since the 70s when they were the 5th largest economy.

    California unemployment = 9.8%
    Texas unemployment = 6.1%

    Last time I was in Texas the grass was not too green, but the air was. Don't worry 'bout dat pollution in Tejas, Perry got it covered. On the other hand, in the 1960s Los Angeles was the 60 mile circular brown cloud you could see from the air hundreds of miles away. I flew into LA three years ago and it was more just a grey mist. A Big improvement and Texas is going in the other direction. Texas is wonderful as long as you don't breathe. Both states are good places for work, but the breathing is better in Cali.

    It also has the highest taxes....

    Thanks to Operation Fast and Furious, delivered by AG Eric Holder and the Obama administration. I'm sure the Texas gun shops made a bundle off their illegal activity.

    That Obama sure does love to sell guns.

    He's made sure as many Americans as possible own at least two or three. What a salesman!

    That's because you always pay more for filet mignon than you do for ground round.
