Arizona Preparing For Wealthy Californians

Big Hairy News

PHOENIX (BHN) – The state of Arizona is gearing up for a wave of incoming wealthy California millionaires and business owners escaping the ever-increasing confiscation of their earnings by one of the worst managed states in the country.

Thanks to unions and years of out-of-control spending on social and welfare programs, coupled with the passage of Proposition 30 last month, high-income Californians are poised to pay the nation’s highest marginal income tax rates – nearly 52 percent, and Arizona couldn’t be happier.

“While we really don’t need the extra traffic, we are thrilled at the multitude of California businesses and their wealthy owners coming to our great state,” said Arizona Governor Jan Brewer. “I can’t blame them, who in their right mind would want to live in that socialist swamp?” more

 

SNIP: The problem with that is,  it brings locusts libtards to AZ, too.

    Wouldn’t it be great to see liberal Union members get taxed on their benefits on top of their salaries? Revolving taxes.

    BWahahhaha, you got to love Jan.

    Off camera I’m thinking her comment was more like “the smart people are coming here to set up shop and enjoy life while the dumb dependant subidized cocksuckers stay behind”.

    As long as the RATs congregate in Tucson, which is already RAT-dominated, they can have their own district, open their own gay bars, gay bridal shops, opium dens, etc.

    Don’t worry, when they move from California to Arizona – they’ll fix Arizona.

    The retro aspect of it won’t help 2012 taxes but at least it wasn’t worded to tax them in perpetuity even if they left the state.

    You know, cuz they didn’t build that wealth they’re trying to steal away from the state now by leaving.

    Mr.Pinko, If they are leaving and wealthy, they ain’t Ed ASSner. They’ll be Tea Party conservative.

    You’d be surprised, Bad Brad. Californians have been escaping to AZ for decades and they bring the very liberalism that caused them to flee Cali in the first damn place.

    It’s why AZ is very difficult to predict politically. It’s why Jan Brewer sometimes disappoints conservatives. It’s why Jan Brewer can be preceded by an ultra lefty like Jan Napolitana as governor. It’s why AZ’s delegation can be 5-3 Republican in 2010 and 5-4 Democrat in 2012

    Callmelennie, well I can’t disagree with you but you ignored my criteria. Let me say this, I married into a big Catholic family, all super conservative save one. She’s an attorney that lives in Phoenix. BUT, you find a small business man leaving Cali. right now to escape the firestorm, they will be as conservative as anybody that currently resides there. I’d leave and head there, but got to damn much real estate that I quite honestly struggle to pay for. Wasn’t always that way.
    Today though I found a recipe for success. Find a company George Soros is invested in. They are doing fine. I shit you not. I’ll ride that out.

    If Arizona was smart they’d make every Californian take a lie detector (or a little spin on scopalomine) test to ensure they weren’t libs trying to have their cake and everyone else’s too.

    Keep in mind, Big Hairy News is satire, like the Onion.

    That said, it’s more or less gonna happen. I’ve seen many, many good people leave California. That’s why the state is getting bluer and bluer, “white flight,” they call it. There’s not so much an idealogical shift as there is people with the right ideas leaving. It’s a dilemma, because we lose support in the process. I feel like a Copt in Egypt – as more people flee, there is less safety in numbers, but at the same time, you want to stand your ground.

    Well you can’t have it both ways. If what you say is true, then move to California, the next ultra conservative state in the union. All the liberal went to AZ. Get a freaken grip.

    @Name Redacted–

    I hear what you are saying about standing your ground. It’s part of what makes it bearable to remain here [Marin County, benighted adjunct of SF] for as long as we have. But I don’t see that lasting forever.

    @MaryfromMarin — I got your back.

    I’m feelin’ it too. I have to stay here because my youngest has another year and half of high school. And I know that CA ain’t gonna get any better in that short time. It will most likely get much worse.

    The best I can hope for is that I can sell my house in 1.5 – 2 years for more than I owe and move to a sane state like AZ, ND, or IN. I hate to go — this is my home; I’ve lived here since 1964. But like the refugees fleeing East Germany, I just want freedom instead of socialism.
