PS - Notice as well that after POTUS began haranguing NATO members about funding, causing our intelligence chiefs to say "he's ruining our alliances!!!".... now NATO funding has increased, and the alliance remains strong. The methods aren't liked by many but the results in NATO's case speak for themselves.

This is all part of Putin's plan, right?

Florida is the fastest growing state in the nation, while New York is the fastest shrinking, followed by Illinois.  Why, oh why could that be??

Out-of-State Buyers Flock to Miami
Residents of high-tax cities are increasingly drawn to South Florida after last year’s tax law capped deductions

A growing list of public officials in high-tax states are expressing alarm that big earners are bolting to low-tax states as new data suggests some home buyers are moving in response to the year-old change in the federal tax law.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo became the latest on Monday when he blamed a $2.3 billion state shortfall on the new federal tax law that he said is driving people to leave the state. During a news conference in Albany, Mr. Cuomo said the 2017 law capping a deduction for state and local taxes at $10,000...

There is a simple way to staunch the bleeding...lower state taxes.  None will see the light though

Seven U.S. states forgo individual income taxes as of 2018: Alaska, Florida, Nevada, South Dakota, Texas, Washington and Wyoming. Residents of New Hampshire and Tennessee are also spared from handing over an extra chunk of their paycheck, though they do pay tax on dividends and income from investments.

Baby boomers retiring?

Because we're a nation of cake eaters.

Sure, some actually move.  Many are reside on paper.  Cali is full of them.  They want to live here, they want all the services this State offers, they just don't want to pay their part of it.

Cake Eater.

You mean that the state pays for and not the feds? Well there is the state of California defending people who are not legally supposed to be here.

What public services?  That is such a dumb ass comment.

I’ll write this but it’s not for you, you won’t really read, you’ll look it to find snippy little misdirects.  Anyone living in Southern California asking ‘what government services’ is, IMO, really ignorant of the way our State works and why they live here.

The first irony is asking what services in a forum around Irvine Housing, an upper middle class city whose primary draw for housing is public schools.  Not Private Schools, but quality Public Schools.  Pesky Government Service. That's State, Local and Fed all in one.

It goes much further than that.  We live here because of the good jobs, educated workforce & neighbors, our climate and beaches.

Yea, that’s all Government Services too.  Literally the air you breathe is a byproduct of a half century of onerous government services to clean it up. Without them, in Irvine, you wouldn’t want to sit in your California room.

It’s okay, without government services, you wouldn’t have a California room to sit in.  There roughly 19 million people in Southern California.  Why are 19 million people in this semi—arid region?  A century plus of massive Government Services and projects to provide you water.  Yea, without those giant water projects, most of those 19 million people couldn’t be here.  Without those 19 million people, most of the things you thump your chest about thinking you’re super successful, wouldn’t be here.

Well we have the economy.  Yea, almost too many government services to name.  The massive infrastructure projects, the 50+ year massive government service investment in the UC and Cal States systems or the government pork of cold war spending. California’s economy, population and vigor has been primed for a century with Government Services.

As you leave your job tonight which likely exists because it feeds on the people and business that feed on government services, and pull out on the government services (road) and think how nice it is now that the government services (lights) are government serviced (timed) and wave to the government services (police) that’s pulled over the shithead that ran the red light and think how nice it is to live in government services (safe) Irvine. 

As you tune in to Jon & Ken on the Radio, you don’t think about the government services making it possible.  As you catch the government services (traffic report) you’re thankful you aren’t a sheeple fighting the traffic on those poor government services in Los Angeles.  You’re rattled out of gloating, as another government services (Fire response) roars by on their way to help someone. 

As you turn towards your home in your carefully government serviced (planned and mandated) subdivision, you notice the vagrant panhandling outside the supermarket and think I need to call government services (Spitzer) and demand government services (someone) does government services (something) about him.  He’s probably a criminal and belongs back in the government services (jail). 

As you walk in your home you barely notice the earth tremor and don’t even think about the fact that the building isn’t collapsing on you because of those pesky government services (building regulations, inspections ad nauseam).  You hug your spouse and ask if they heard about the government services (recall) on the Romaine.  You don’t really think about the government services (clean) and government services (safe) food you’re going to eat or about the fact that you government services (know what’s in it).  You sit down to enjoy the beautiful evening in your California room, breathing the government services (clean air) and enjoying the government services (view you can see because your eyes are burning and blurred from watering).  You ask how your kid’s day went at government services (Public School). Wonderful they say, but complain about the government services (class size) which makes you grumble. 

You talk about maybe heading to the government services (Beach access)) this weekend.  You love that they are government services (clean).  You notice you forgot the government services (water) so you go inside and flip on the government services (electricity) for the lights, which actually  government services (come on and work).  You grab a government services (non-toxic) plastic pitcher from the counter and head to fridge and get some government services (filtered) water to remove the taste of the government services (chlorine) which keeps the water government services (safe).  After dinner, you head in to adjust temp because it’s getting chilly and the furnace government services (kicks on and burns gas).  You smile because it’s a very government services (efficient) new system.  You flip on the government services (TV broadcast) catching the news about government services (financial and economy indicators).  You’ve got an early day tomorrow back at your self-made job, so you head off to your government services (non-toxic) bed blissfully unconcerned that your  heater will government services (heat safely) and not smother you with carbon monoxide.  You lay down comfortable knowing that tomorrow the government services (shit you take for granted) will be there just like today and go sleep dreaming of a world free from all those pesky government services.

As a former government employee, I thank you for your kind words and recognition of our service.

Would it surprise you to learn that many of us in government don't trust the way the government operates? Did you know that many federal agencies, including DOD, use Fed Ex instead of USPS for important mail even though USPS is cheaper?

The discussion about are the services efficient and effective is very different than 'what services' or do we need them.

Or the even more perverse, 'I don't use any government services' while railing about SNAP.  There's a blindness in the Middle Class, those making comfortable high five and six figure incomes to just how much government services they thoughtlessly consume.

What services does this state offer?  I'm genuinely curious.

Your comment makes very little sense.  You said this state offers services that make people want to live here but not pay for them, implying that other states don't offer these services, yet unless I'm mistaken, everything you listed above is offered by other states for cheaper and better quality

California education is ranked 41st in the nation, for example.  So Irvine might be an exception, but California as a whole sucks.  We have the worst poverty rate in the nation.  We are 16th for violent crime.  I could go on and on.

So which items on your list of government services are offered exclusively by California and are of higher quality than other states?  As I said, I'm genuinely curious.
