A certain radio personality repeatedly describes liberalism as a mental disorder. I always thought that was a nice read meat insult and never took it seriously...until recently. How else do you reconcile a whole state repeatedly shooting itself in the foot...on purpose!
I see the same mentality now taking over nationwide as Obama pursues the same illogical policies that knowingly dampen employment (Obamacare, Dodd-Frank...)and reduce our supply of cheap energy. At a time when China is aggressively locking up supplies of energy and metals worldwide, we are purposefuly and daily performing self-sabotage. After all this, Democrat politicians are the ones that have the chutzpah to accuse GOP politicians that THEY are the ones praying for a slowdown in the economy!
With satire, the closer it is to truth, the hotter it stings.
The answer is in the article:
The states environmentalists think capitalism is harmful to the environment, says Assemblyman Dan Logue, chair of a GOP task force on jobs and the economy. They think jobs and people leaving the state are good.
Leftist bureaucrats are the ultimate NIMBYs. They want California's population drastically reduced so they can have the state's natural beauty and environment all to themselves. The more businesses and middle class residents that move out, the better, in their eyes.
