Where did you get this?

Last year it was CA $2.0 trillion, TX $1.3 trillion (for 2011)

It couldn't change that much in one year.

why Allen, you talking to me now? I find that hard to believe. It's easy to follow someone around on topix when they sign in. For the life of me, I don't know what you are trying to accomplish. However, the term I used was"real" GDP. Guess I will be signing off. Bye y'all!

Just a couple of things. Last year was 2012, not 2011. Do try to keep up. Second of all, where are YOUR sources?. One more thing. If California has such a great economy, then why are cities like Stockton bankrupt?.

I wouldn't give a two-bit misinformation specialist like "Allen" much thought. I run into morons just like him on another thread. It's fun

A good point Defiant. Internet stalkers are not rare. But not signing in keeps the stalker from knowing about what forums I'm on. I only signed in on two forums, wanted to see how long it would take before I got harassed, if at all. As far as California comparisons, one"expert"said that California's ace in the hole was having two ports in the top 25. Guess the guy conveniently forgot that Texas has at least FOUR , including the eleventh largest port in the world, Houston. Outshines anything California has. Texas has the largest collection of hospitals and research facilities in the world..

I like it if they stalk and harass me. Then they get to learn all about themselves. LOL Most of these dimwits are just jealous of Texas. Most
of them hate to admit that the cesspools that they reside in are dying.

GDP (Y) is a sum of Consumption (C), Investment (I), Government Spending (G) and Net Exports (X – M).
Y = C + I + G +(X &#8722; M) C (consumption) is normally the largest GDP component in the economy, consisting of private (household final consumption expenditure) in the economy. These personal expenditures fall under one of the following categories: durable goods, non-durable goods, and services. Examples include food, rent, jewelry, gasoline, and medical expenses but does not include the purchase of new housing.
Justasaying] You are mixing your GDP’s with your GNP’s factoring and equations. I have stated what needed to be said and stand by it. Repeating, repeating will not help you or the urchins you attract. There are even more factors on how to manipulate GDP and GNP but you can’t even fathom the simplest of what I have already given you.
So I’m going back to what I was originally discussing. The ever growing chasm of the Teabaggers and right wing nuts with the established conservative republican party. That chasm is increasing with every sputtering of the intoxicated Teabaggers. Here is another example of recent.
Democrats and republican moderates have joined forces. Sweeping aside the Tea Party and the right wing nuts. In all places, Arizona! A previous bestial of the Tea Party.
Between them both they actually came to a budget with bipartisan support. On June 13, 2013 Governor Jan Brewer {R} Led the way that will add over 300,000 of their uninsured citizens to the roles of the insured. Embracing the Obamacare Health Care Plan.
Governor Jan Brewer gathered up her allies and repulsed themselves from the intoxicated Teabaggers and their minions. Carrying it so far as not to answerer any of the Tea and right wing nuts questions and shooting down any of their proposals.
Obamacare exposed the rift that is growing into a chasm where the Tea and the right wing nuts are being pushed into.
Their Senate President Andy Biggs {R} who was a staunch opponent to the Obamacare was swept aside. All these right wing nuts and the Teabaggers, had to say , was similar to what we find on these threads. Right wing nuts and Teabaggers, Constant redundant dysfunctional rhetoric and derogatory remarks. No substance or valid argument. Sputtering and babbling.. Now we know where these urchins get their cue’s from. Rushing Foxes with their Pied Piper’s melodies of “A La Propaganda.”
The chasm widens.. Justsaying…

Yes you can repeat and repeat but doth not make anything so. Gave you examples easily spelt out for even the simplest of you to try to comprehend but you do not. That’s all there is to that. Identifies your borders of comprehension. AND once again repeating, repeating, repeating “TENS OF THOUSANDS!” move from California to Texas,“DAILY”. LOL highways must be jammed.. How many times have I asked you to present your source and means by which you have calculated this? All I’m getting from you on that is the sound of crickets snoring. If you cannot validate your comment then we can all take it to be just another intoxicated Teabagger’s illusionary remarks.
Now back to the Teabaggers demise sucking in the right wing nuts with them. Republican chasm continues to widen. Perhaps the established conservative republicans will finally emulate our for fathers of 1773 and cast out the dysfunctional Tea Party.
Tea Rally back in April, Senator Ted Cruz {R Tea Party} of Texas, taunts the traditionalist republicans after the Senate rejects back ground checks on gun control bill. Cruz along with the all Tea Party members threatened to filibuster away this bill. Established conservative republican considered it more prudent and wiser to let it go to a vote. This would garnish a few democratic votes. Which is what eventually happened. Cruz considers republicans that choose that method of governmental as “Squishy”. Our way or the highway is all that is required. Wall Street Journal Editorial retweeted John McCain {R Traditionalist}; “ Would it have been right for us to not even debate, in light of the Newtown Massacre” Depth of chasm deepens.

Ah yes Allen ran across those numbers as well. Trying to get these urchins to comprehend math is for amusement sake only. You could say 2+2=4 and they would be befuddled. LOL try to explain how much time is required to put the numbers together will be far, far too much for them. Better luck teaching your dog Physics.
The Congressional Budget Office said the 2013 fiscal deficit would fall to about $642 billion, or 4 percent of G.D.P., about $200 billion less than it estimated just three months ago.
WASHINGTON — Since the recession ended four years ago, the federal budget deficit has topped $1 trillion every year. But now the government’s annual deficit is shrinking far faster than anyone in Washington expected, and perhaps even faster than many economists think is advisable for the health of the economy.
The agency forecast that the deficit, which topped 10 percent of gross domestic product in 2009, could shrink to as little as 2.1 percent of gross domestic product by 2015 — a level that most analysts say would be easily sustainable over the long run — before beginning to climb gradually through the rest of the decade.
"Revenues have been strong as the economy has outperformed a bit," said Joel Prakken, a founder of Macroeconomic Advisers, a forecasting firm based in St. Louis.
Over all, the figures demonstrate how the economic recovery has begun to refill the government’s coffers. At the same time, Washington, despite its republican political paralysis.
Republicans say perhaps too successful. Given that the economy continues to perform well below its potential and that unemployment has so far failed to fall below 7.5 percent, many economists are cautioning that the deficit is coming down too fast, too soon.
“It’s good news for the budget deficit and bad news for the jobs deficit,” said Jared Bernstein of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.{R}
“I’m more worried about the latter.” OOOHHH scary..
Now Obama is showing his democratic colors of success in financials. With the government running a hefty $113 billion surplus in the tax payment month of April, according to the Treasury, analysts now do not expect the country to run out of room under its debt ceiling.
The $200 billion reduction to the estimated deficit comes not from the $85 billion in mandatory cuts known as sequestration, nor from the package of tax increases that Congress passed this winter to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. The office had already incorporated those policy changes in its February forecast.
Republicans want Congress to agree for this year to serving as a partial brake on the recovery, cutting government jobs and preventing growth from accelerating to a more robust pace, many economists have warned. The International Monetary Fund has called the country’s pace of deficit reduction “overly strong,” arguing that Washington should delay some of its budget cuts while adopting a longer-term strategy to hold down future deficits.{R} Typical, small minds for small growth..
CBO is revising its estimates for the current year, the budget office also cut its projections of the 10-year cumulative deficit by $618 billion. Those longer-term adjustments are mostly a result of smaller projected outlays for the entitlement programs of Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare, as well as smaller interest payments on the debt. The C.B.O. has quietly erased hundreds of billions of dollars in projected government health spending over the last few years.
It did so again on Tuesday. In February, the budget office projected that the United States would spend about $8.1 trillion on Medicare and $4.4 trillion on Medicaid over the next 10 fiscal years. It now projects it will spend $7.9 trillion on Medicare and $4.3 trillion on Medicaid. Pass it on.

Allen did you catch that? Waco never answers the question just goes back to something else. They want to play with GDP and GNP while they subtly throw in some gibberish as thou it was a fact.“Ten’s Of Thousands Daily” He has been on this kick for about a month now and not once produced a source or how it was calculated. Just another Teabagger with his addiction to the intoxications of Tea and their illusions. Simply observe where the flies concentrate. Highest probability of finding the manure they so do relish.
Hey here is something you can pass on. I was wondering how the two Party’s would stand up to being mathematically exposed. Well Pedro did just that. Here it is.…
A mathematical investigation was produced by the statisticians Pedro Santa Clara and Rossen Valkanov that exposes the superior performance of the stock markets under democrats. That this is but one example of the democrat’s superiority, as there are more.
Their study encompasses 80 years. Study demonstrates systematically and positively surprised by democratic policies. Comparing the stewardship of the two parties. They calculated each economic indicator as an “annual average” during the democrats and republicans of their economic stewardship of their 40 years each. Turns out to be a landslide for democrats providing beneficial returns to the nation. One example; Democrat’s presided over a very respectable average annual compound return of 9.60% during their 40 years where in as republicans averaged a dismal 0.58%.
Consider this; a 401K plan invested in stocks and had a value of $100,000 at the beginning of the 40 years. Democrats would accumulate in compound interest $ 3,912,210 where in as republicans would only produce $126,027 . Another example; “IF” an employee were to invest $5,000 per year into their 401K for 40 years in a democratic stewardship the employee would have $1,985,526 in the bank. Where as the republican would produce a dismal $224,375.
That republicans advocate that they are good for businesses is false as compared to the democrats
Another interesting fact emerges within the statistical study. The income gap between the 99% and the top 1% has widened considerably under republicans. Averaging .49% as compared to the democrat’s .41% That is to say under republicans the income gap in 40 years, widened by 19.6% and narrowed 16.4%. Resulting in a 36% difference.
LOL on debt republicans increased debt by 2.5 times greater than that of the democrats. Republicans $7.1 Trillion vs. the democrats $2.8 Trillion.
GOP’s Self-Proclamation for economic dominance; in fact it is a misnomer to call the GOP a fiscal responsible party and or a smaller government, when in fact the contrary is true.
Obama’s administration indicates he sought the great leaders on these issue. Eccles and FDR, Clinton and O’Neill to do what is most productive for our nation.
Now you can pass on this one small example of the fallacies of the republican’s erroneous policies and deceptions..

Here is one company you will be proud of.
West Texas, with its infamous safety record, has once again come to national attention. Announcing they will now be the Waste R-US of the Nation ! Hazardous waste of all varieties will be accepted.
Ron Baltzer is proud to have a robust complex with its one stop shop with everything in waste control specializing.
Perry is only scratching the back of his buddy Simmons, who has contributed $1.1 Million through the years to Perry’s political campaigns. Simmons, one of the ultra wealthy amongst us, owns the complex, that resides on a 90 acre site that is part of a 1,380 acre site operation for hazardous waste.
Presently they are receiving and or have received the PCB’s from the Hudson River of N.Y., Radioactive waste from the “Cold War” Plant up in Ohio, that was the producer for atomic weapons and as well the Radioactive stock pile from New Mexico. Receiving no less than two shipments per week from just that one facility After all N.M. wants to have 3,706 cubic Meters of that waste disposed of by June 30 2014. Just a few examples of the efficiency of this site that can be found about 350 miles west of Dallas.
Perry has left the Sovereign State Of Texas with a gift that could only be achieved through deregulations and cheap uneducated laborers. Now that’s the republican way… Job Opportunities !…Hmmmm Now of course the executives and the CEO are getting their golden parachutes ready to deploy once they bankrupt the company. Now you can have all the fun fort the next few thousands years {Radioactive compounds one example} trying to keep that Toxic waste from spilling out at taxpayers expense. Now that won’t hurt Texas will it? Just saying… Oh and your paste copy GDP is out dated.

As I predicted. Columbus Ohio is the first to publicly announce the growing gap of Primary Care Physicians. Obamacare has stimulated an employment scenario. New uninsured patients requiring primary care will be flooding the markets as they become insured on January 1st 2014. Demand for Primary Care Physicians will be in ever increasing demand, as well as all of the orbiting fields that support primary care.{Nurses, medical assistance, administrators, Maintenance personnel etc., etc.} Emergency Rooms {ER’s} will start to lose their primary care patients to “Private Primary Care Physicians”. Reliving the burden of financially costly primary care status to their ER’s. Reducing cost of Health Care.
This will take years to fill in this gap. The “Association of American Medical Colleges” estimates that within 2 years there will be a shortage of 33,000 Primary Care Physicians to rise up to 66,000 within a decade. Imagine how many will be required in the orbiting fields , that supports private Primary Care Physicians. Looking for a job?
Now doctors will start to organize their patient loads to what each one is comfortable with. Some will use retainer fee’s for the more affluent, returning us to the good old days of doctors making house calls. Suppressing waiting time for patients in their waiting rooms. Increasing an atmosphere for quality time for the one on one doctor patient scenario’s. Suppressing the unnecessary medical test , as the doctor will be more familiar with their patients. Decreasing the HMO’s intrusive bureaucratic death panel decisions. Decreasing cost to Health Care.
New York is throwing $Millions on the problem, Texas has approved for two Medical schools to provide Primary Care Physicians and Florida has extended the authority of their optometrist to prescribe additional medications, related to their fields.
Nevada is the lowest per capita for efforts to close the Primary Care Physician gap followed by Mississippi, Utah, Texas and Idaho, according to the Association Of Medical Colleges.
Presently Primary Care Resident Doctors are overwhelmed with hundreds of offers to choose from. If you don’t have a Primary Care Physician, suggest you make haste to acquire one before they close their doors to new patients.
Obamacare will provide millions of jobs and lower Health cost at greater quality.
Republicans desire the old truly tested failure of the past on this Health Care system. Promoting insurance monopolies with their ever increasing cost and dwindling quality care.
Harvard in 2009 did a study on our nations health care system. Discovered we were losing 45,000 citizens per year simply due to lack of primary care health. Ah but that’s the republican way. Lower the surplus population. Bah Humbug I say to them…

Did you know that the leading cause of death is birth?. Think about it. Can't die if you were never born and death is part of the natural process
of living.

People are going to die with or without health insurance and overinflated medical care. People should start boycotting the whole crooked industry and piss on Obama and his CommieCare.

Like I've been telling clowns like him, results are the only thing that matter. Kalifornia has turned into a LIEbral cesspool and the end result
is people leaving it and coming to a more business friendly state.

I just hope that the transplants leave their so-called "values" in Kalifornia.
