From the LA Times, “Guess which state has the highest poverty rate in the country? Not Mississippi, New Mexico, or West Virginia, but California, where nearly one out of five residents is poor. That’s according to the Census Bureau’s Supplemental Poverty Measure, which factors in the cost of housing, food, utilities and clothing, and which includes noncash government assistance as a form of income.”
And now the Wall Street Journal study says California has 50% of the nation’s bum population, even though our non-homeless population is only about 12% of the total for the US.
Let me sum it up for you:
CA- most taxed state in the nation
CA-legislature, tied with NY for highest paid
CA-education, ranks 47th out of 50, grades 1-12
CA-has 3 of the nation’s worst cities for homicide
CA-ranks number 1 of all states for the most homicides
CA-has most stringent gun control laws in US, except for Washington D.C.
CA-has the most illegal immigrants. Estimated number of undocumented immigrants is 3,034,000 people
CA-is in a 4 way tie for the most Sanctuary cities, the other 3 are Vermont, Rhode Island and Connecticut. Theirs is a token gesture because they have almost no illegal aliens
CA-Highest fuel prices in the nation. This affects poor more than anyone else.
See what happens when liberals control everything? It is a complete disaster and I’ve only touched on a fraction of the problems liberals have created. CA should be a warning to the nation – never elect liberals to anything.
PS Be sure and sign the petition to recall Karl Ory and Randall Stone from the Chico City Council, these are two flaming libs without a wit of common sense.
