Red states better hope California doesn't secede. Who's going to pay for their stuff if the blue states don't?


They will. No more paying for CA support of illegal aliens.

Remember how upset all the CA taxpayers were when Trump raised taxes on the rich and got them to finally pay their fair share?

Well, why didn't you think it's ridiculous? I saw right though it. Wasn't worth discussing.


Calexit is a movement worth watching. It is worth mentioning the USSR went from being on the march worldwide to Lithuaniaexit in just 10 years. If CA wants to leave let them leave, just they pay for a wall first!

Well, that's my opinion of anyone thinking California is separating from the Union.
No state will ever be allowed to leave the union, the civil war proved that.

15 min before the jobs report was
released Politico posted this:

POLITICO
@politico

'Welcome to jobs day. Itís going to be another terrible one but perhaps not as terrible as many previously feared. Consensus is for a loss of 7.8 million jobs in May and a jump in the unemployment rate to 19.5 percent.'

The actual report said 2.5 million
jobs ADDED, and unemployment
13.3%. The media almost passed
out in disappointment. The recovery
is well underway just like Trump
said it would be. The Dow went up
2000 points this week, 829 today
alone. Even with all the looting
and rioting and people still scared
of the virus.

And the recovery is without NY, Calif,
of Illinois. Or most of MI. We're still
under lockdown. Our wicked witch
bitch gov was in a video this week
saying stay home, be safe, and she
showed us how to give ourselves
our own haircuts, I kid you not.

How do you figure? CA doesn't even pay for its own stuff. They are a huge debtor state even with a 13.3% highest marginal tax bracket.

As of a year and a half ago, 10 states were "donor states" meaning they had a net outflow of federal tax dollars.

California was nearly break even, but not a donor.

According this, California is 39th least dependent state on Federal money. Isn't that what is important?

Whereas Mitch McConnel's state of Kentucky is 5th most dependent on federal money.

Some new polls. Emerson and Rasmussen have Trump's popularity among blacks at 36% and 40%. It's been ticking upwards for the last 3 years. Black business ownership under Trump has surged 300% from what it was under Obama. 20% of all small businesses in the United States are owned by blacks now. There is also a p o l l that shows defunding the police is only approved of by 16% of the United States. Big surprise.
