Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, June 27, 2022

More than 20 million Californians can expect a new round of direct payments to hit their bank accounts this year, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Sunday. The state is issuing payments up to $1,050 in what the governor called a new "middle class tax rebate."

Clearly, it's all dependent upon your income.

I'll receive the equivalent of 4 tanks of gas.

Thanks, Gavin, I guess. Better than a stick in the eye.

CA is a top 10 economy as are FL and TX.

Size matters. In FL's case, shape also helps.

Repubs give money to the rich. Dems give money to the working class.

Only morons and rich greedbags vote for republicans.

Give a man a fish he eats for a day. Build the man a fishing pole and he eats for a lifetime.

Spend on infrastructure, Water, Grid, (JOBS) etc etc, rebate for EV's under a given income, . So much better than just giving money and creating more demand pull with no return.

But hey it buys votes ... Yeah for Gavin!

Funny how loafers plus do-nothings equals the fifth largest economy on the planet.

Curious.

You left out the part where working class people are leaving there in droves for destinations like Texas. Wonder why that is?

It wouldn't surprise me if U-Haul hasn't started paying people to drive trucks back to California.

If you are educated, California is far and away the best location in the USA to live. If you are uneducated, not so much. California being the 5th or 6th largest economy in the world is built on a brain drain from the rest of America and the rest of the world to this State. Retirees and uneducated people however indeed are leaving in large numbers.

Nothing curious about the runaway income concentration.

Adjusted for inflation it's less than geedubs federal "Money, in your pocket!"

On the other hand, it is my perception that if you are an educated and otherwise sane individual, Florida is far and away the worst location in the USA to live. Ignorance and stupidity seems to have an electoral majority in that state.

Thanks Newsom.

Just gotta say; it would probably be triple that rebate if we weren't forced to subsidize red states.

Terrible idea, particularly when the state can't meet its pension obligations. Politics over sense.

Seems like an awfully broad brush statement. California is great, no doubt, but the housing costs and state income tax rate are far from ideal even for most "educated" people. You can have much better quality of life in other places for a fraction of the price.

Because it's cheaper to live in places that no smart person wants to live.

Supply and demand.

You're like a ------ dive bar owner talking about how your bar is better than the hottest club in town because there is no line outside and the drinks are cheap. So come on in and hang out with a bunch of smelly losers and toothless meth whores.

I don't have anything negative to say about California except to say there are many great places to live in this country, educated or not.

This is stupid. There are plenty of smart people in cities like Chicago, Minneapolis, Portland, Boston, etc, who all enjoy a better QOL for their money (other than weather) than they would in California.

You don't have a monopoly on smart people. You're only revealing how untraveled you are by making this claim.

Chicago is not full of rednecks and trump cult members. Chicago is expensive. For the same reasons. It's full of educated people with the brains to earn a good living. If you lack those skills you have to move out to the boonies and live with vanilla ISIS where life is affordable for morons.

People dont need to live in a big city to attain a good paying job.

Country life isn't for me either. In the burbs I have a yard and nice neighbors. Everything I need is a very short drive - a couple of miles. I'm a short drive from two state parks. Traffic isn't so bad which makes car ownership logical and preferable.

Go ahead and live in a big city. It has a lot of perks and some drawbacks as well.

Just quit being a snob about it - your ignorance is astounding.

No but they need to have brains to make enough money to live well in a big city. That's why big cities dont have many trumpers in them. That's worth paying any price.

Maybe not, but it absolutely helps.
The good paying jobs are where the money is.

Actually the near suburbs come out looking pretty good here:

www.unitedstateszipcodes.org

Highest Household Income ZIPs
The Top 3
#1
07078 (Short Hills, NJ)
Median Household Income of $250,001

#2
10282 (New York, NY)
Median Household Income of $250,001

#3
40025 (Glenview, KY)
Median Household Income of $250,001

The Census Bureau puts a limit on the median household income that is reported. The top 8 ZIPs have a median household income greater than $250,000.

Republicans have to believe that their opposition couldn't possibly be living better than they are. That's why you need so much propaganda about liberals not having jobs. When it's actually trumpers who lack the education to earn any real money.

You are NOT any kind of opposition to me.

You're not significant enough to represent that.

And I know people who live in New York, Boston, DC, LA, San Diego, a ton in KC, etc...and live well.

I have a friend who lives in Austin, TX....and lives insanely better than I do.

Their politics are irrelevant.

Chicago is expensive.

Literally a fraction of what it costs to live in any halfway relevant California city.

Yeah notice you listed major cities. That's where smart people go because they can get good jobs and afford to live there.

I generally agree, but none of them cost anything close to what California does, which was my point.

Trump supporters are more likely to be poorly educated. Does education correlate to income? Let's see if you live in reality or not.

According to mouth-breathing Republicans, the law of demand and supply is magically suspended in California. If they were right about its desirability, housing should be practically free.

I just cannot figure out using which metric that anyone would claim that Texas is the greatest State in the Union. Texas is many things, both good and bad. But I don't think anyone anywhere would say that Texas is the greatest State in the Union, except for perhaps sentimental reasons for people who live or grew up there.

It's a privilege to be able to share California's tremendous wealth and technical innovations with others.

California has plenty of peoples and companies to spare. We don't mind sharing our companies and peoples and their innovations and progress with backwater third world S-hole countries like Texas. Maybe someday it will help Texans grow the F up.

But sorry. We are keeping our heavenly weather right here.
