California considering ditching welfare

Wow, things out there must really be dire for them to talk about this, but IMO it would be great for their budget. I look for more of these stories from other states as obamas recession drags on.

What I think is hilarious is all the gloom and doom prophecies by the people administering this mess. "Child abuse will skyrocket like it did in the Depression!" Give me a break.

Anything California drops will be picked up tenfold by the federal government. I only WISH these programs were really evaporating...

Exactly what I was going to say. You will see a mass exodus to neighboring states.

There are motions in other states to road block any vehicle with 22" + rims.

They already have. Just look at the laws that you never thought would have made it in your city/county/state, etc.

I liken Californians to the Aliens in Independence day. They move from location to location, sucking up all the resources only to leave a law controlled civilization because the new place turned out to be just like the old place. Fucking freedom suckers.

Didn't San Fran start paying homeless people a few years back? They have come a long way if they stop state sponsored handouts.

Sweet, then maybe when they all leave we can migrate to the West Coast. Inhabit and make it a Red State.

With a decided emphasis on the warmer climates. Face it, New Jersey or Dallas in the winter, which would you choose? Yeah, them too.

If enough folks leave California the state could lose enough electoral votes to were they single handedly couldn't sway a close election. This might work in everyones favor as long as the liberals move to hard core Red States where it would be a waste of their time to even show up and vote.
