Arizona Preparing For Wealthy Californians
Big Hairy News ^ | December 6, 2012 | Scooter Van Neuter

Posted on 12/06/2012 3:58:53 PM PST by WXRGina

The state of Arizona is gearing up for a wave of incoming wealthy California millionaires and business owners escaping the ever-increasing confiscation of their earnings by one of the worst managed states in the country.

Thanks to unions and years of out-of-control social and welfare program spending, coupled with the passage of Proposition 30 last month, high-income Californians are poised to pay the nation's highest marginal income tax rates - nearly 52 percent, and Arizona couldn't be happier.

"While we really don't need the extra traffic, we are thrilled at the multitude of California businesses and their wealthy owners coming to our great state," said Arizona Governor Jan Brewer. "I can't blame them - who in their right mind would want to live in that socialist swamp?"

I gotta say, not all the California residents fleeding this wannabe socialist paradise are wealthy. We’re still in the process of working and saving up enough money for moving expenses and car repairs. We’re looking forward to the lower costs of living in Arizona, for sure.

I’d be locking the doors to the wealthy left wing millionaires trying to escape CA.

They will ruin your state too.

Uhh, Jan, many of those same millionares helped build that swamp and put the state of California in the mess it's in. Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it.

If people are fleeing, who will buy their homes in Taxifornia?

Please don't hold that fake quote against Gov. Brewer. She did not say that. This post is strictly meant to lighten the load--a bit of levity in this awful post-"election" America.

California liberals think Arizona is too hot, anyway - our summer temperatures keep a lot of pests under control. :)

Are they going to sublet the rooms of their mansions to a legion of lowly workers?

No, the lowly workers will purchase $800k homes for 3% down and move in a half dozen families.

I know what you mean. The first thing they’ll do is what they did in Colorado. Turn Arizona into a replica of the sewer they crawled out of. There goes the neighborhood.

Roger that....this last election was close enough for me to see the hand writing on the wall.

If we do not turn the tide soon, we may be looking like a smurf or a worse a greasy californification turd

They will move here and try to turn Arizona into that utopia from which they fled.

PLEASE! Just stay where you are.

Well, it took me until Gov. Jan’s “comment” before I realized the article was onion-esque

Jan might think that, but would never say it for anyone to hear.

I can believe that ditzy broad, Simema or whatever her name is, came right out and proudly claimed that she was a socialist. The morons bought her BS and elected her anyway. I think most of them were just in love. Bad news for Arizona.

Hopefully they'll leave their liberal ideology behind.. the very thing that got them what they are fleeing from.

I probably should’ve put “(Satire)” in the subject/title line.

You know it, all those lefty idiots will do is vote for whatever leftist crap they voted for to ruin CA. Capture them and then release them into Chihuahua, let them try their pro immigrant stuff there.

Vernon Parker was defeated by 1-the Libertarian that drained thousands of votes and 2-voter fraud. Since Obama signed his executive order giving ‘Dreamers’ status, the left has been busy registering boatloads of illegals to vote. You do have to have a photo Id to vote in Arizona but those can be fraudulently created. And her name is Kirsten Sinema. She also said 'stay at home moms and girlfriends are just leeching off their husbands and boyfriends' and then added some vulgarities.

“Prepping”? As in preparing for a disaster?

Sorry for Arizona, I wish they would stay in the state they ruined and not spread their enlightenment elsewhere as I can see what they did in Colorado and Montana also.

Perhaps. But, "Preparing" may have a slightly different connotation in this case.

I agree that a lot of Californians are idiotic leftists, just as you say.

However, not all of us are that way. My sig. other and I are not, and we do NOT plan to Californicate wherever we go.

Between the crazy politics, the rising cost of living, the illegals, and just the general loss of civility, I now wish I'd left permanently years ago. But better late than never. I don't want to die here in California!
