‘Will The Last Person Leaving California – Turn Out The Lights

According to the Seattle Times, that “Iconic “will the last person” Seattle billboard bubbles up again“.

It’s been 38 years since Bob McDonald and Jim Youngren put up the iconic billboard reading “Will the last person leaving Seattle — Turn out the lights,” and its slogan has been used worldwide any time there is an economic downturn.

Seattle does have its problems again, but California?  That a whole ‘nuther level of problems.  Cross the equally iconic “Caution – Illegal Crossing” with “Caution – Residents Fleeing” like Michael Ramirez has, and you begin to understand why U-Haul will practically pay you to take a trailer into California. From The Mercury News,

Moving from San Jose to Las Vegas, Nevada? You’ll shell out $945 to rent a 10-foot U-Haul truck, and $1,990 to rent a 26-foot truck, for up to four days, according to the U-Haul website. But make the move in the other direction, and you’ll pay $119 for a 10-foot truck and $132 for a 26-foot truck.

Moving from Phoenix, Arizona to San Jose is the same — $119 for the smallest truck, and $132 for the largest. But a trip from San Jose to Phoenix costs $618 and $1,301.

What California Democrats Have In Common

California Threatens Secession

This army has as much chance of defending California’s “sovereign” borders as the following one does in correctly spelling ‘Secede‘.

Make America Steak Again

With a little more effort the only thing California will grow or produce is Mexicans.  Forget about cows (Beef, It’s What’s For Dinner) ’cause “California’s New Cow Fart Regulations Totally Stink“.

make_america_steak_again“This bill curbs these dangerous pollutants and thereby protects public health and slows climate change,” said Gov. Jerry Brown said in a statement when he signed the bill in September, against the wishes of the state’s farmers.

The law won’t stop cows from farting, of course, because cows are notoriously disrespectful of human-passed laws. Instead, it will make life more difficult for dairy farmers in California.

California used to be the land of “fruits and nuts“, but with their penchant for regulations it’s soon going to be the “land of sand and sagebrush”.  And Mexicans.

Yep, California Prop 64 Passed

And it passed with a ‘high-flying‘ majority, no less.
