LA Times on California
WC Varones (WCV) has a 2 November 2009 post which refers to a 1 November 2009 Los Angeles Times opinion piece. Here's a link to WCV's post: http://wcvarones.blogspot.com/2009/11/la-times-california-sucks.html. I was surprised "LA" Times printed it too. Even LA Times apparently recognizes that California's current tax and spending policies are unsustainable without federal help, "California's public sector has pinned its hopes for avoiding fundamental reform on increased federal aid to replace dollars the state's fed-up taxpayers refuse to surrender. In other words, residents in the other 49 states--the new 49ers?--would enjoy the privilege of paying California's taxes". Why not? Californians pay Mexico's taxes? Steve Sailer (SS) at Vdare sees this article on 6 November 2009, much the way I do, link: http://blog.vdare.com/archieves/2009/11/06/california-v-texas-again/. SS notes, "The concept that Latinos don't earn enough to pay for an expensive government is pretty obvious, but it's just off the radar screen. The liberal media just see more NAMs as more justification for more government spending and more votes for government spending". Yes SS.
