Is this the "mass exodus" from Califournkeez we keep hearing about

#1 - probably some are from California, but I'll bet a lot are from within. The article indicates Hispanics are the largest growing segment. They also have the highest birth rate, so that is probably a lot of it.

Not all of California's "mass exodus" are going to Texas.

I see you quoted "mass exodus"
So you don't believe it either, then.

"I see you quoted "mass exodus"

I used quotation marks because it was a quote.

It is a fact there is an exodus from California. I'm not sure 'mass' is the right adjective to attach to it, however.

500,000 out of 40 million is not an exodus, fool
It's a slowing of growth

Between 2010 and 2021 the population growth is 6.1%

"Exodus" indeed

#6 - "Exodus" indeed"

Indeed. That is why California lost a congressional seat after the 2020 census.

#5 - If you want to use polite society rhetoric like "It's a slowing of growth", then yes, it is. The slowing is in the negative numbers.

Money Exodus, not a Mass Exodus. Californians gentrified MLK in Austin. They took a place uniquely weird and made it bland.

If Abbot and Costello are still running the state, look for a sharp drop in population in the next 3 months.

The GOP is fighting a losing battle against changing demographics nation-wide. They can play all the tricks and sleazy maneuvers, but as time goes on their racist brand of trying to divide white people from the rest of the population will fail. It is already happening.

If this story offers any clues, it's because it's getting too dark in Texas.

Good luck to all those moving to Texas. Little do many realize their new governor harbors the same emotions and thought patterns of George Wallace, and I'm not talking about the comedian...

This is why the Republicans are undertaking a nation wide effort at rolling voting back to nothing but white property owners.

First your cult whines that californians are too weird. Then you whine that they're too bland.

Just admit that you hate california because it destroys your fallacies about liberals not being able to succeed.

We had a cult here, briefly. Ended in a bonfire. So sensitive to Austin going bland like you live there. Weird is just a euphemism for poor. The black owned bbq trailer is gone. Here's your hot chicken plated on a rock. Austin was busy murdering it's local culture for awhile, the gentrification and sprawling homeless camps just accelerated it.

That's amazing.

Imagine how bad your homeless problem would be if you weren't bussing half of them to california.

Maybe california should return the favor. How pretty would your streets be then?

Austin in MLK is a running joke about that joke. It's in a pretty decent location near Sixth Street that was formerly a very well known area for live music. When somebody shows up and offers you $500k for a $50k home you take it and move to the burbs.

Still not has bad as California, no shortage of Section 8 home builds here. You have to work hard to be #1 in poverty like California. It takes a couple decades for your housing market to stagnate so badly, and that takes a lot of anti-growth and NIMBY political effort.

Also, Texas doesn't bus them to Cali. Texas cities play a shell game where they buy the homeless one-way bus tickets to other major Texas cities. Austin ended up with the biggest homeless encampments in the state, so it banned outdoor camping and will go back to bussing them around.

Gentrification in Austin is like this, but about 30% cheaper: A $700k trap house in Monterey linked a few minutes ago in the group chat of people I've gamed with for 15 years that mostly live in SoCal.

Yeah as you can see we all are really worried here in California.

My house is worth about 40% more this year. Being as my house was already worth a half million that's quite a chunk of change. How is yours doing?

You mean you have to work hard to make it in a state that everyone wants to be in. California is the cream of the crop - the most competitive market in the country. If you dont have the brains or skills to earn money, you will have a tough time here.

Just like if you dont have money or looks, you can't get into the hottest club in town.

California's problems come from the fact that the weather is awesome, the jobs are high paying, and everyone wants to be here, stressing the resources and driving up prices. If you're a loser who can't compete, it's much easier to survive with low effort or low skills in a place like texas or west virginia.

Exactly! And one of the reasons my home has recently increased in value by nearly 40%. Ridiculous I know but I am not complaining!

A friend used to joke he would rather be a bean picker in California than ANYTHING in Texas. But he WAS part Mexican so ...

Anyway as I have always said,

Like New York City ... if you can make it here in California you can make it anywhere.

Wrong. Use the SPM. The SPM reflects housing costs. It was put in place by the Obama admin because the old metric is horribly flawed.

Sorry it makes Cali look bad.

Donner thank you for making my point. My real estate also appreciates. Yours has the most because of lack of supply. It's also why you're #1 in poverty.

I don't care if Cali builds more. I'm not paid to and never will be. I don't have to care about a problem to point out it exists.

Really? So do you consider Houston a Sanctuary City then? Yeah we have a few of those.

And why do you hate Mississippi? Mississippi is number one in poverty in America and apparently proud of it!!

Why do you want to take away the one thing they can be the best in America in?

Nazi's are so mean.

Only as much as someone else appreciates it.

Apparently more people would appreciate my property right now.

Regardless of what you want to believe. Every state has its problems. But the People vote with their dollars.

I am happy Houston is so "multicultural". Though it's not really rated number 1 by everyone. But I am glad you think it is. I'd call that progress for you!

We have a few of multicultural cities too. Our whole state is rated the most "multicultural". Maybe it will help Texans grow up and become better citizens of the world faster.

And Thank You for making MY point. lol ._.

Sitzkrieg is right that California is highest on the Supplemental Poverty Rate, based on the latest numbers. www.usatoday.com

Interesting breakdown on these numbers:
1. California
Supplemental poverty rate: 18.1% (the highest)
Official poverty rate: 12.5% (18th highest)
Cost of living: 14.8% more than national avg. (3rd highest)
SNAP recipiency: 8.5% (12th lowest)
Median household income: $75,277 (6th highest)

12th lowest on SNAP recipiency is not what you'd expect from the most impoverished state. It's a tale of two economies.

I didn't mention the poor at all. I simply pointed out cali's prices are a result of its success. You can't walk into a lexus dealer and then whine that you can't afford anything there. That's YOUR fault. You should stick to the used saturn dealership, aka texas, where someone with your low skills and abilities can afford to live.

Yeah your cult is so warm and welcoming for mexicans that you elected the guy who said they were rapists and murderers. BUILD THE WALL BUILD THE WALL.

Houston is multicultural against the wishes of the white people in texas, who makes sure to redraw all the districts so that brown voices won't matter.
