It has been a pretty bad year for organized football in general. With the NFL anthem protests and thousands of fans leaving the game as fast at their legs can carry them it’s a wonder how they can even fill a stadium part of the way anymore.
A lot of it is due to the fact that everything in sports has to become some political statement. What in the heck ever happened to just playing a child’s game at a high level and enjoying yourself. Can you imagine if you tuned into a baseball game and in the middle of the fourth inning they had a thirty minute foreign policy debate before the game continued?
This is so embarrassing for California, but who cares? It’s not like this state and its far-left liberal socialist citizens harbor any shame anymore.
Attendees of the Valero Alamo Bowl in Texas actually booed the Stanford University Band during its failure of a halftime performance after the left wing hack bandsmen mocked the border wall, Whataburger, and all things Texan. The awful and disrespectful performance came during the California university’s bowl game versus Texas Christian University, and TCU responded by defeating the Stanford Cardinals.
The Stanford marching band which is known for its satirical and disrespectful halftime performances, unless you are a liberal that is, poked fun at Texan’s state pride, the border wall proposed by President Donald Trump, horned frogs (the TCU mascot), and Whataburger, which is the iconic burger restaurant loved by the majority of Texans. But this group of disrespectful ingrates forgot one thing, “Don’t mess with Texas” isn’t just a fake slogan like “The Golden State” is.
Via Manhattan Institute: For decades after World War II, California was a destination for Americans in search of a better life. In many people’s minds, it was the state with more jobs, more space, more sunlight, and more opportunity.
They voted with their feet, and California grew spectacularly (its population increased by 137 percent between 1960 and 2010). However, this golden age of migration into the state is over. For the past two decades, California has been sending more people to other American states than it receives from them. Since 1990, the state has lost nearly 3.4 million residents through this migration.
This study describes the great ongoing California exodus, using data from the Census, the Internal Revenue Service, the state’s Department of Finance, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Federal Housing Finance Agency, and other sources.
We map in detail where in California the migrants come from, and where they go when they leave the state. We then analyze the data to determine the likely causes of California’s decline and the lessons that its decline holds for other states.
