Escape from New York

Only this time it’s the sequel to Escape from LA rather than its forerunner.

Not that it matters: many of the people who leave failed liberal states will simply settle into a new state and get to work on destroying it, too.

For instance, the Colorado of the 70s didn’t eat quiche. Then California threw up. And now we’ve become inundated with social locusts voting themselves and the rest of us into bankruptcy.

Call it the progressive cycle of life. Or social pestilence. Tomato / to-mah-to.

  1. a lot of what is happening is cause of how the piggy piggy union whores try to stop everybody from enjoying the everyday low prices

    they want ever-higher taxes for their sweet sweet piggy piggy pensions and they want you to pay an extra union thug tax on everything you buy

    and people say too bad so sad later losers

  2. Whenever I traveled to the Chicago area I thought of the prices there as containing what I called “The Daley Tax”. Imposed by the corruption in the Chicago government its costs spread throughout the entire area. Shall I call the same in California the “Moonbeam Effect”?

  3. “Then California threw up. And now we’ve become inundated with social locusts voting themselves and the rest of us into bankruptcy.”

    Reminds me of Bill Pullman’s lines in the cheeseball fun of “Independence Day” after the alien revealed the plans for the planet.

    Now all we need to do is infect them with a virus that renders their defenses inoperable.

  4. Stacy McCain escaped Maryland. Evidently, Aaron Walker wasn’t so fortunate.

    REPORT: Aaron Walker Arrested After Maryland Hearing on Kimberlin Case

  5. Maryland, like California, can now be deemed a failed state.

  6. Via Christian Adams, a copy of the arrest order:

    A. 1. That there is clear and convincing evidence that within 30 days before the filing of the Petition, the Respondent committed the following act(s):
    Placed Person Eligible for relief in fear of imminent serious bodily harm: COUNTLESS NUMBER OF BLOGS EITHER THREATENING DEATH

    2. That there is clear and convincing evidence that Respondent is likely to commit a prohibited act in the future against the Petitioner.

  7. There’s a reason Kimberlin is pulling this crap in Maryland instead of, say, Texas.

  8. You realize that every time we let this happen, we are opening the door. As has been noted before the creep will not stop. As so goes California so goes Texas and Florida… sooner or later it will set in.

  9. @sdferr: You got your computer fixed! Yay!

  10. Nah, I just bought a new one. The old’un ain’t been squeezed data-dry yet, but that operation is coming one day soon I hope. But yeah, yay says I too.

  11. People who leave California for the likes of Colorado are a different kind of hardened fag than people who go from New York to Florida, I’d bet. Colorado has all kinds of things that soft white liberal pussies enjoy like majestic scenery, skiing and wild animals.

  12. People who leave the sunny climes of California for the mile high, extremely snow-packed parts of Colorado, generally don’t last too long.

  13. Sometimes new is better than rejiggered old stuff, sdferr. I’m on my fourth or fifth computer in eleven years. The kids get the oldies after they get the old data removed and the hard-drives flashed or replaced.

  14. Colorado has all kinds of things that soft white liberal pussies enjoy like majestic scenery, skiing and wild animals.

    They’re doing the same thing in Utah, but to a lesser extent, on account of all them Marmons [sic] who refuse to stop being so square and annoying about alcohol.

  15. what economic mobility remains here in failmerica is free money for our pathetic little country’s obama-raped economy

    anyone what can move somewheres else in the country and thereby protect more of the wealth what they create from the squandery clutches of the state is doing God’s work I think

  16. We have a lot of Californians here, as well. The difference is, like my own family, they are the children and grandchildren of dust-bowl refugees and are just returning to the Auld Sod.

    We don’t have any hip enclaves like Austin or Park City so, so far, so good.

  17. North Dakota has oil, nukes, and winter. I don’t think California will ever invade there.

  18. Just read an article in Texas Monthly yesterday wherein the chairman of the state Republican party claimed he could foresee a future wherein Texas becomes a swing state.
    Thanks, of course, to the floods of immigrants whose votes and affiliation can be/are bought off with public bennies. Not to mention the refugees from blue states, but so far their reach is fairly limited to Austin and its environs.

    Just when I thought I was safe here. Don’t know what plan B is yet if/when the waters close over what was once a haven. Sheep farm in New Zealand?

  19. Ruby, your report brings me down. I’ve been counting on the Republic of Texas as the final safe haven.

  20. With respect, Ruby, I think Munisteri makes the same mistake as most of our “demography is destiny” prognosticators make: assuming that Dem client blocs will remain so forever.

    Give me a handful of successful Hispanic businessmen who can talk to their neighbors — white, black, brown, red, yellow, or anything in between — about things like liberty and job creation and strong families, and I’ll give you a 20-point swing in Hispanic voting patterns.

    As our good host would say: people are individuals, not skin colors.

  21. I would beg to differ from the good GOP party chairman … I can’t see Texas ever being a swing state. Maybe if Austin becomes an independent entity of itself … but as for the rest? Doubt not that Texans are cantankerous and independent – just as Utahans are, when it comes to those refugee Californians who come in and start beefing about the way that those Mormons are being about square and selling alcohol on Sundays.
    And I speak as a refugee from California, and one who has actually lived in Utah. I don’t believe that there will be too many Californians coming to Texas and whining about how we don’t do things the way they did in San Jose. The summer heat will keep them out.
    Plus, all the really movie-spectacular scenery is in West Texas, where the summer heat is the hottest.
    They might attempt to take over the Hill Country, though … which is OK, scenery-wise. It just has a lot of stubborn German-Texans in it, and they won’t roll over easily. (It was tried, during the Civil War. By the Confederates. Didn’t work out well. The German-Texans were the last ones standing.)

  22. One the money spigot stops, as it has to, the demographic will change.

  23. North Dakota has oil, nukes, and winter. I don’t think California will ever invade there.

    I gew up in NoDak. One of the favorite bumper stickers there: “-40F keeps the riffraff out!” I’m thinking -40C accomplishes the same thing, but more scientifically. :D

    And now we’ve become inundated with social locusts voting themselves and the rest of us into bankruptcy.

    I can’t help but note the irony that your locusts love the chance to vote for more stuff at someone elses’ expense, But Hate TABOR (the Colorado TAxpayer Bill Of Rights) that requires all tax increases to be put to a vote of the people. They bring a very conditional reverence for democracy it would seem.
