Left´s Howls Against Rick
Perry´s Texas Prove Its Low-Tax
Model Is A Success

Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 2/20/2013 8:41:34 AM

Taxation: Governor Rick Perry took a lot of ridicule for his efforts to lure California´s tax-strangled businesses to his home state of Texas. If that´s so ridiculous, how come it´s his leftist critics showing all the hysteria? Perry´s state is an undisputed economic success story and has been a magnet for businesses from all over the U.S. for several years now. With no income tax, a legislature that balances its budget and a bureaucracy that seems conditioned to ask businesses "How can I help you?", Texas´ biggest problem these days is finding enough office space to accommodate all the newcomers.

Comments:
They can´t stand the success of Texas - which speaks for itself.

In all seriousness, Texas should be the first State to secede, beginning a gold rush by other red States. By the time enough red States secede, the business-friendly, low-tax model will have been demonstrated to be a rousing, prosperous success that will begin a stampede by blue States to copy the model when they lose enough of their tax base.

SECEDE, Texas! Lead the way and tell California to bugger off.

I passed up a really ugly piece in Salon this morning. The headline was "Southern Poverty Pimps" with a photograph of an angry looking Governor Perry. Of course the point is that lots of jobs in Texas are low-paying and that Texas is a Right-to-Work state. Beyond that, the article was just a jealous snark.

The article does not mention Texas´ dirty ugly secret. Something that few outside Texas know about. The Texas leglislature only meets for six months every two years. In other words the state only has a part time leglislature. And whats more, we don´t pay them very much so they have to maintain real day jobs. Yet dispite all this we somehow manage to fumble along.

The argument by the leftists is that Texas is "lucky" because it is producing all this oil shale bring in huge revenues. California has a butt-load of oil and always has. Historically, say the last 30 years, California has ranked #3 in oil production. The problem is the liberals do not allow oil production off the coast and do all they can to limit production. That is the same as with their gold mines. There are a lot of old gold mines that could be reentered, but environmentalists stop it.

A low-paying job is better than a NO-paying job. Plus, they get to live in Texas. Pretty good deal.

´Low paying jobs´ are entry level jobs. It allows a first timer to get a job so that he/she can work their way up the chain to financial and personal success. Don´t knock ´low paying jobs.´

Just about any honest presentable person today can eventually get a job at any big box store (Walmart, Lowes, etc.) They need lots of employees and the prospect for moving up into management is quite good.

My home, which is in the average Houston range, would go for over a million dollars in most parts of California.

So I don´t need a huge salary in order to justify a huge mortgage.

Cost of living in Texas is low compared to NY/CA. That´s why we do well.

Quality of life is better as well. And with technology, humidity, fire ants and pollen are easily controlled.

#5 and #12, I was synopsizing the Salon article´s point, not expressing my opinion. I fully agree with both of you. I am a multi-generation Texan, my family going back to Comanche-fighting days along the Trans-Pecos. I will defend my state any place and for any reason, most especially, to the clueless at Salon magazine.

I recently had an interesting conversation with my new-American-Citizen son-in-law who was born in Mexico, grew up in California. He said the longer he stays in Texas, the more self-confident and self-sufficient he becomes and the more he notices the difference is attitude when he visits his friends in California. Of course, I attribute some of the change in attitude to his being with my daughter who was brought up in a conservative household and who has that Texas independent attitude.

If you know any young Hispanics, you should make a real effort to influence them into adapting a conservative attitude. It may be the best thing you´ll ever do for your country.

Jamaica´s Cannabis Commercial and Medicinal Research Taskforce (CCMRT) says it has been given an assurance that the country later this year will decriminalize marijuana as the island seeks to establish a medicinal marijuana industry. CCMRT leader, Dealana Seiveright in a statement, said that the assurance had come from Jamaican Science, Technology, Energy and Mining Minister Phillip Paulwell. The statement quoted Paulwell as telling members of the taskforce that “ganja will be decriminalized in Jamaica this year and emphasized that Jamaica cannot be allowed to be left behind on the issue”.

Shakedown: A federal judge has ruled that a $9.5 billion judgment against Chevron in Ecuador was won through fraud. It´s a victory for Chevron, but at a cost of millions. So why isn´t someone in this environmental predator racket in jail? After more than a decade of battling against charges it created a "rainforest Chernobyl" in an Ecuadorean village called Lago Agrio, it must have come as a relief to the oil giant to hear the words of truth ring out from the bench of a tough Manhattan judge, Lewis Kaplan. In a nearly 500-page ruling, he branded the entire case as

Some Americans may vaguely recall Mumia Abu-Jamal from the "Free Mumia" T-shirts and posters that once cluttered college campuses. Maureen Faulkner will forever remember him as the cold-blooded cop killer who left her a widow at age 24. Maureen has endured three decades of endless appeals and a dishonest, international campaign to turn her husband´s killer into a celebrated icon for the radical left. Now one of the lawyers who helped to promote that campaign, Debo Adegbile, has been nominated to lead the Justice Department´s Civil Rights Division.

Leadership: Marco Rubio lit the Senate on fire Wednesday with a powerful statement about Cuba´s stranglehold on Venezuela. He didn´t need to dig deep to prove it: His evidence was as abundant as Cuba´s shortages. With much of the foreign policy establishment either silent or focused elsewhere, and useful idiots in the Venezuelan regime spewing mendacious talking points in the media, it´s easy for truth to get lost in the maelstrom submerging Venezuela, a nation just 1,200 miles from Key West. But every now and then a leader emerges from such a mess, and Sen. Rubio stood out with what

Vice President Joe Biden has revealed that the President assigned him ‘every s*** job in the world’ but he still wasn’t able to win Obama’s full support and began being effectively frozen out after one of his infamous gaffes. The 71-year-old argued that he was happy to do the less glamorous tasks- like handling the at-times petty Senate fights and calming the fears of the infamously paranoid President of Afghanistan Hamid Karzai- but only at a price. ‘When the president asked me what portfolio did I want, I said, “Base it on what you want of me to help you

Justice: Mexico has bagged crime cartel boss Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman in a major takedown. Problem is, Mexico has no death penalty, and its lax prisons are a joke. So why not try El Chapo in the U.S.? For Mexico, the capture of Guzman, kingpin of kingpins who ran Mexico´s biggest and most powerful drug cartel, was the equivalent of the U.S. takedown of Osama bin Laden. His diabolical war over the last decade has left tens of thousands dead as he amassed a $3 billion fortune.

At the southernmost point of Central Park, on a small strip of sidewalk abutting 59th Street, hundreds of Venezuelans swarmed a statue of Simon Bolivar, the Caracas-born liberator of South America and a figure now most commonly associated with the bolivarian revolution of Hugo Chavez and his rechristened Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. But it’s an association that when mentioned in this crowd produces furrowed brows and narrowed eyes, quickly followed by a rapid-fire recapitulation of Chavez’s many crimes. The necessary symbolism of the meeting point trumped practicality: the crowd quickly swelled, spreading like an inkblot from the small patch surrounding Bolivar

Bureaucracy: The FCC jumped the shark with its outrageous plan to police America´s newsrooms. This grasp for a new mission signals an agency that has outlived its purpose. We have a better idea: Just scrap the FCC. There´s nothing worse than a federal agency that has lost its original mission, has nothing productive to do and, as a result, is restlessly rustling around for something to justify its existence. That describes the Federal Communications Commission, an old-line agency founded in the 1930s to regulate a limited supply of television airwaves divided among three networks, which is now gone with the wind.

Leadership: On the 20th anniversary of Nafta, perhaps the greatest trade pact in history, President Obama came to a summit with Canada and Mexico with little to offer, wasting a chance for a far-reaching new energy pact.

Twenty years on, Nafta is one of the most powerful and revolutionary success stories in the history of trade.

A proposed government study of how media organizations gather news has incited a powerful backlash, particularly among conservatives, who said that it could be part of an official effort to intimidate or second-guess journalists. Faced with an outcry, the Federal Communications Commission’s chairman said Thursday that he would amend the effort — intended to assess whether the news media were meeting the public’s “critical information needs” — by removing questions that critics had deemed invasive. The FCC last year proposed an analysis of news content from newspapers, Web sites and radio and TV stations. The agency said it wanted to assess

During his speech to the CPAC crowd on Thursday, Sen.

McCain fired back at Cruz during an appearance on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports. McCain said he spoke to Cruz about the comments and it was “cordial” but he took specific offense at the remarks concerning Dole. “He can say what he wants to about me and he can say anything he wants to about Mitt,” McCain said,

Via Matt Lewis, here’s Maverick once again demonstrating that “cordial relationship” in politico-speak means “two people who can’t publicly admit to hating each other but obviously do.” And it’s a cheap shot. Cruz’s point yesterday at CPAC was that Dole, McCain, and Romney lost because they weren’t conservative enough. That’s not because they’re gutless — he said specifically that they were “good” and “decent” men — but because they’re not committed, full-throated ideologues, even less so when they’re fighting for purple states in a national election. We can debate whether that’s true but there’s nothing offensive in raising the subject.

What’s been said of confession — that it is good for one’s soul but bad for one’s reputation — can also be true of testifying to Congress, so Lois Lerner has chosen to stay silent. Hers, however, is an eloquent silence. The most intrusive and potentially most punitive federal agency has been politicized; the IRS has become an appendage of Barack Obama’s party. Furthermore, congruent with exhortations from some congressional Democrats, it is intensifying its efforts to suffocate groups critical of progressives, by delaying what once was the swift, routine granting of tax-exempt status. So, the IRS, far from repenting

One of the most seismic changes in American politics over the last decade has been the emergence of a sharp generational split among the electorate. The Democratic Party owes its success in the last two presidential elections almost entirely to overwhelming support among the very young, which has overcome continued conservatism among older voters. The Pew Research Institute has dominated the field of exploring the ideological cleavages among different generations. And its latest survey shows again how the liberalism of the youngest voting cohort, millennials, remains firm, and likely to continue to recast the electorate. A few charts from the survey

Barack Obama´s parents were "married in name only," according to David Maraniss´s 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. But since definitions of an "in name only" marriage vary, such as "a marriage of convenience" or "a sexless marriage," and Maraniss failed to explain his claim, it is unclear what he was implying. Therefore, Obama´s oft-told nativity story must be searched for the full implications of Obama´s parents´ "in name only" marriage.

KINGSTON - More than 150 years after European colonial powers abolished slavery, a coalition of Caribbean nations is considering legal action to seek a formal apology and monetary compensation. Caribbean leaders meeting next week in St. Vincent are expected to study a broad legal outline for the reparations claim prepared by a British law firm. The subject of reparations has simmered in the Caribbean for many years and opinions are divided. Some see reparations as delayed justice, while others see it as an empty claim and a distraction from modern social problems in Caribbean societies. Slavery ended throughout the Caribbean

The Boeing 777-200ER flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing had been missing for hours when Vietnam´s Tuoi Tre news quoted Admiral Ngo Van Phat as saying he had asked boats from an island off south Vietnam to rush to the crash site. If the report is confirmed, it would mark the U.S.-built airliner´s deadliest crash since entering service 19 years ago. Malaysia Airlines had yet to confirm that the aircraft had crashed.
