Hong Kong is not nearly as nice a place as Marin County, where I live, or San Francisco, but it sure is a better place to do business and it sure is a better place for poor people to find work than say San Francisco or New York or Chicago or Newark or Los Angeles or any of the other Democratic party dominated cities in this country,

Ridiculous. The Republican South is not having any easier time of it. :roll:

Few places in the union are in as bad shape as California, Illinois, New York, New Jersey and let's not forget places like Detroit, Philadelphia, Oakland, Camden, Newark, etc., Democratic bastions all. States with Republican govenors have led the way in fiscal prudence and reining in out of control public employee unions.

In Texas, the Republican governor does that on the backs of poor people, doing stupid things like working to eliminate Planned Parenthood--where the majority of poor women get pap smears, mammograms, and contraception. There is nothing fiscally prudent about his retributive and pandering stance on Planned Parenthood.

Neat, many of those places that drive our national economy, unlike rural Alabama.

But why do care about Detroit? You voted for Romney after all and we know what he would have done.

California has 34%of the country's welfare cases, 10.1%unemployment which is actually closer to 16%, we have 6 million illegal aliens who depress wages for low and unskilled Americans, we now have a 10% sales tax, the highest income taxes, the highest gasoline prices in the country, the highest utility costs in the country and we have the highest paid teachers and the worst performing schools. Texas looks pretty good from where I live.

You must be a masochist, Billy: you've been complaining about CA as long as I've been reading your posts, yet you continue to live there.

No one is holding you prisoner, you know.
