My first thought was how many people to man the "poop patrol" for that!

California lost more residents to other states than it got last year

By PHILLIP REESE |

PUBLISHED: November 5, 2018 at 10:05 am | UPDATED: November 5, 2018 at 11:30 am

About 130,000 more residents left California for other states last year than came here from them, as high costs left many residents without a college degree looking for an exit, according to a Sacramento Bee review of the latest census estimates.

They most often went to cheaper, nearby states — and Texas. Since 2001, about 410,000 more people have left California for Texas than arrived from there. That’s roughly equivalent to the population of Oakland.

California has seen more than 15 consecutive years of net resident losses to other states. The trend was sharpest at the height of the housing boom between 2004 and 2006. It slowed markedly during the housing bust but quickened again during recent years.

The state’s overall population continued to grow because the number of births exceeded the number of deaths by about 220,000 in 2017, according to the California Department of Finance. The state also added about 185,000 residents via net immigration from abroad.

But California is drawing more people than it is losing from one distinct demographic group — those with an advanced college degree. About 9,000 more adults 25 and older with graduate degrees came to California from other states than left for them last year, census estimates show.

In addition, about as many adults 25 and older with a bachelor’s degree but no master’s degree came to California as left for other states last year.

On the other hand, adults without a college degree left California in droves. Educational attainment is closely correlated with income — those with college degrees tend to earn a lot more than those without.


California is losing the middle class...

Including the writer of this non-sense word group !!??

So, they left looking for an exit :D

What if the exit was to the South? CA, could pay people like $5,000 for heading thru the turnstiles to the South. But they must get an implant first, so we can track them and whether they ever try to reverse course and return.

So net/net $10k total cost to send them South. Still might be a bah gan.

Job prospects are literally fantastic for young people with college degrees in SF and LA. The chief obstacles are the rents and home prices. Then you add in California income tax, gas taxes highest in the nation, high auto registration costs and smog check rules that make it impossible to smog a vehicle older than 5-7 years without big repair bills....absolutely stunningly expensive electricity rates (because of cap and trade and state rules about "renewables"...which the electric companies have to buy from Arizona private companies while throttling down EXISTING gas plants owned by the electric utilities.

Saw a video of his where he was young and foolish, bought a seaside home in hurricane ally, every few years a storm would barrel through and wipe out his house ... sad, yes ... except his cheap government insurance paid him to rebuild. That was when he was young and foolish, now he preaches against government handouts like that.

If you decide to build in hi risk areas, pay hi risk insurance. Don't expect tax dollars to bail you out for investing foolishly.

Democrats Gain Veto-Proof Majority in California Legislature

Democrats win two Senate seats in California's Central Valley, gain veto-proof supermajorities in state Legislature.

Nov. 12, 2018, at 9:01 p.m.

By DON THOMPSON, Associated Press

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Democrats have won two Republican-held California state Senate seats in the Central Valley, giving the party veto-proof supermajorities in both chambers of the Legislature.

Vote totals updated since Election Day made winners Monday of Melissa Hurtado and Assemblywoman Anna Caballero.

Hurtado won the open 12th District seat while Caballero defeated Republican Sen. Andy Vidak in the neighboring 14th District. Both are in the Fresno area. Vidak, of Hanford, has held the seat since a special election in 2013.

The victories give Democrats a two-thirds advantage in the 40-member Senate. The party also has that advantage in the 80-seat Assembly. The party also holds every statewide office, led by Gov.-elect Gavin Newsom.

Two-thirds majorities allow Democrats to raise taxes, suspend legislative rules and override vetoes without Republican votes.

All the state Assembly seats and half the Senate seats were up for grabs in the election. Democrats tried to capitalize on California voters' strong opposition to Republican President Donald Trump and opposed GOP-led efforts to repeal last year's gas and vehicle tax hikes that annually raise $5 billion to support transportation improvements. The ballot measure failed last week.

Tens of thousands of votes remained to be counted after Election Day. As they were tallied, Hurtado and Caballero outpaced their rivals.

Hurtado, a Sanger city councilwoman, held an 8,000-vote lead in the district that includes all or parts of Fresno, Kern, Kings and Tulare counties.

"During the course of the campaign my visits to communities convinced me we need to do more in the district in terms of improving access to health care, creating jobs, and providing children with a meaningful education," she said in a victory statement. "I promise to work hard on these issues. And as a member of the state Senate, I will stand with other Central Valley legislators to make sure we get our fair share of water."

Vidak conceded Monday. "It has been the greatest honor of my life these past five years to represent my friends and neighbors in the 14th State Senate District," he said in a statement.

The 12th District seat is being vacated by Republican Sen. Anthony Cannella, who could not run again because of term limits.

Republican Madera County Supervisor Rob Poythress conceded his loss and congratulated Caballero. She led by about 6,200 votes in the district that includes all or parts of Fresno, Madera, Merced, Monterey, San Benito and Stanislaus counties.

"We gave it all and left nothing in the table," Poythress said in a statement.

Caballero promised to work hard to meet the needs of rural residents on access to health care, education, clean water and clean air, affordable housing, and agricultural production in a Legislature dominated by lawmakers representing urban areas.

"The outcome tells me the message and vision of our campaign was the right one for rural California and the district's voters," she said in a statement.

The wins give Democrats at least 28 votes in the upper chamber.

Democrats had been expected to retain their supermajority in the Assembly, particularly after voters in the June primary election chose two Democrats to compete for the seat vacated by incumbent GOP Assemblyman Rocky Chavez in coastal San Diego County.


California----expect more sanctuary cities, shit-laden streets, gun control laws which do nothing to stop shootings, and communities in which illegal aliens may legally vote (in state/local election).
