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.
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..

<quoted text>So, all the companies moving to Texas, in the long run, is going to hurt Texas? 2. "Real GDP per capita is found by:

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.

Liberal California... Going nowhere fast. Wealthy Californians are moving to Texas. In fact, looks like all kinds of Californians are moving to Texas. Looks like people vote with their feet. Got that Forand? Does that anger you? After all, actions speak louder than words. Californians wouldn't be coming to Texas, unless Texas presented OPPORTUNITY!!!

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.

Sounds like B.F. is a lawyer or maybe a tax lawyer. "Gave you examples easily spelt out for even the simplest of you to try to comprehend but you do not."
Remember? Go back and reread and try not to come back with the most indecipherable post EVER! The government has great websites to get the most "up to date" info. BTW, I wouldn't count on "Allen's" posts, can't even get the year correct. Facts are facts and California is swirling around the bowl. Try reading the LA Times or the Sacramento Bee.

Texas surpassed California in exports in 2002, and never looked back. Texas has the world's 14th largest economy, ahead of South Korea.

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.
B.S. I mean B.F. here's some light reading for ya and if you want to invest in California. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/24/business/tr... Please count the bonds being auctioned off this coming week from California.

I aim to please you with this one. Ah here we go into the summer of 2013. Liberals are rolling out the barrels for fun and singing on sunshine. Resting in shaded pools of the cool, cool changes evolving. A higher evolution to our politics’ maturity is budding forth once again. In the past decade “We The People” have examined ourselves and found us wanting to step out of the gloom and doom scenarios of the traditionalist conservative views of the past.
Shackles of prejudice are falling to the ground. Mary Jane is now identified with beneficial outcomes. Illegal immigrants are observing a light at the end of the tunnel. Gays are growing in their freedoms to be gay. America is awakening to be once again the land of the diverse melting pot it once was. Rejuvenating strengths that was always their fundamental strengths‘.
Demographics of the ideologies of Jim Crow, John Birch or the hyped up McCarthy are fading into the archaic dust bins of our history. Another dark chapter of our growing pains.“We The People” have reached a majority that choose to distance themselves from the gloom and doom policies that promote these dysfunctional callow ideologies.
51% are now in favor of gays to be gay. 72% agree that this is inevitable. Mary Jane up 11 points from 2010. Previously only less than 1/3 comprehended its beneficial factors. This according to Pew Polls. CBS/N.Y. Times poll have discovered 83% favor a path to citizenship for the illegal immigrants. 20% higher than the 2007 Pew Polls. Which was the last time this issue was addressed.
Business scholar Fariborz Ghadar, from the Center Of Strategic and International Affaires explains what is occurring. Quote “ Whether it’s war on terror or the recession or this or that; Society then reacts to those periods and change results” he goes on to say “The younger generation is getting more accepting, the pace of change is much faster, data is available to us more quickly. We’re more plugged in to the world around us and its combining to allow people to develop their own opinions and be open to others”.
1980’s generation grew up with 911 and the gloom and doom of the past of the bushwhacking days. They are now 18 to 32. Here in lies the moving force for the abrupt change in right wing polarization to left wing polarization.
Similar to the 60’s after the Nam episodes. Social rights sprouted, as it is now with the 80’s generation.
Today we have instant communication and knowledge at our finger tips. Fraudulent propaganda schemes of our past prejudices become exposed. Observe the effect on programs such as “Weeds, Modern Family and Ugly Betty” to name a few. They stimulate diversity and liberalization. Advancing the goals of the broad open minded liberal, as opposed to the narrow close minded conservative. There will continue to be gloomy times. They however are advocating their own demise with each experienced generation that follows. Growing in intellect and controlling, the gloom and doom scenarios. Science will soon render these gloomy days for agricultural benefits. Removing them from authority based organizations. Obama once said “ Each successive generation creates a new space for peace and tolerance and justice and fairness” Right to the point.

You still have NOT showed us your calculations that supports your comment of 10’s of Thousands Daily if any. Indicates your comments are nothing more then pure fabrication. Now back to the subject.
The Chasm Widens.
Illinois {R} have elected a new chairman to lead their party. Pat Brady resigned lat month. Citing his wife’s her fight with cancer and family matters. Complaints have arisen from the “Conservative”{Tea Party} Republicans on Pat’s support for gay marriage. This was another factor that weighed in Pat’s decision. After 6 years as a republican he has lost interest as to the direction of the present republican party.
Jack Doragan of Rosemont Illinois will be replacing Pat. Jack is expected to bridge the ever increasing chasm within the republican party. Jack does not commit as to how he stands on gay marriage. Jack carries the hope and aspirations of the divided republicans that suffered a sweeping defeat in the 2012 elections.
Committeeman Walsh, who recently lost his seat to {D} Tammy Duckwont , sums up well the flagging republican party archaic ideologies. Walsh say’s “Even the private door process of selecting a chairman was emblematic of problems.” Goes on to say “ We should be speaking to a ballroom of 1,000 republicans right now. My god folks the party is breaking up. If we don’t pick someone who will energize the base, the party will wither away.}
Jack figures that what is required is a party of a “Big Tent Organization”; Further admonishing the failure for their legislators to do their jobs and legislate. Site the recent example of how republicans obstructed to bring a bill up for debate this past weekend before the session ended, at the state capitol. Jack says “ Whether you like government or you don’t, its there and it is a necessity”! Does that sound familiar? Hmmmm
