Interesting Article on Fox Business This Morning

Post by COSteve »

Varney: Joe Rogan is fed up with big city problems. FOX Business' Stuart Varney on Joe Rogan announcing he's moving to Texas to flee big city headaches.

"Joe Rogan runs a very successful podcast. It's called "The Joe Rogan Experience." He got a $100 million deal from Spotify -- serious money. So when he announced that he's leaving California and moving to Texas, I figured it was all about taxes. But apparently, that's not the main reason. No, Joe Rogan has had it with big-city problems.

He says: "When you look at the traffic, when you look at the economic despair, when you look at the homelessness problem that's accelerated over the last six, seven, 10 years, I think there's too many people here. I think it's not tenable. I don't think it's manageable." He's not coming at this from a political point of view: he's not complaining about Democrats or Republicans.

No, he's joining the exodus from cities, period. Urban problems are out of control. And with the virus lock-down, things can only get worse. He's getting out of Los Angeles, with its chronic homeless problem. They have an education problem too: No classroom learning for LA's kids till next year. And they are cutting the police budget, while crime is rising. Does anyone doubt that California will be raising taxes? People are voting with their feet.

Joe Rogan is the tip of the iceberg: He's a high-profile refugee from the urban mess. One more time: look out the window from this studio. Look out at mid-town Manhattan on a Monday morning. It should be bustling, but it's not. Joe Rogan is leaving Los Angeles. There are plenty of others leaving America's cities, which are in deep, deep crisis."


What I find interesting is that even though I moved to Northern California as a kid in 1956 with my family and loved the place, by 1980 I had had it with the traffic, the crowds, the anti business, anti family and anti white climate, as well as the general left coast attitude. I guess I recognized what my Rogan did just 40 years earlier. It use to be the 'Golden State' or so we thought. But gold doesn't tarnish and today's 'Commiefornia' is nothing like the place I grew up in. :o :cry:

A consistent thing - people trash a place, then move to a pristine place, and trash it, and keep repeating the cycle.

It is the 'social' version of slash-and-burn agriculture.

Move to a nice place (nice as a result of unfettered free market capitalism and lax gun laws), selfishly pass economic and business regulations for their own interest that wind up backfiring or being overridden by other larger groups, and naively pass a bunch of 'gun control' laws. Pretty soon the place sucks. Then, instead of un-doing the damage (which is probably impossible), they move away to another nice place, and repeat the cycle.

That's all well and good but what I hate is they all want to come someplace like I live.
Then inevitably turn it into what they left.

If you can learn to like our winters, the Upper Midwest (aside from the Twin Cities) doesn't attract too many citidiots.

Yeah Texas is quickly turning into a place you don’t want to be either because everybody is doing just what ol Joe is doing. Leaving a real crappy place and coming here. I’m afraid Texas is the next California.

Just as Colo Steve left Cali 40 years ago, I left Colo 40 years ago, for the same reasons. For all practical purposes it is now a blue state.

Texas (through no fault of the good folks that grew up there), is filling up with northeasterners that don't like big taxes and cold winters as well as Californians. It will soon (if not this year) turn to a blue state. If that happens, with the high number of electoral votes, there will never be a republican president elected again. Hold on to your hats, it can and will get worse.

I agree with Leverluver that Colorado is now way too left wing, however, there are still a fair number of conservatives and conservative areas once you get out of the Denver / Boulder / Ft. Collins areas. My valley s/w of the Denver Metro area in Jefferson County is still pretty conservative and still a great place to live. I don't go downtown much so the crazies there can have the place. I'm hoping that my area stays good until at least after we're gone.

I lived in Jefferson county also, Golden specifically. Yes, there are still great places in Colo to get away from the nuts but the problem with the big cities is that they dominate politics. Denver (actually the front range from Colo springs north through Ft Collins) dominates Colo just as New York dominates New York state. Chicago dominates Ill (and I know a LOT of terrific folks in Ill). The coastal cities LA through San Fran dominate Cali. My point being is that I have mixed feelings on the crumbling of the cities. I don't like to see the good folks hurt but maybe it is a good thing they are crumbling. I know the left would love to "corral" us all in cities because it is much easier to execute their "plan" so maybe it is a good thing to let them crumble from within. The good people that need to move will be welcomed elsewhere but the ones (mostly rich elite) that promoted the policies that caused the problems in the first place should be forced to stay and drown in their own sewage.

Still a lot of good here in Texas. Problem is that we have brain dead Leftist zombies running Houston and Dallas. The Dallas County (doesn't) Prosecutor refuses to prosecute thefts from stores under $600. The County Judge prosecuted a woman who opened up her business when he had given shut down orders. He offered to drop the charges if she apologized. She didn't, and he put her in a jail which was a CoVid hotspot. He had ordered VIOLENT FELONS released just days before. As you can easily guess, Dallas County is not my favorite place.

Pennsylvania ain’t no cakewalk! The head of the department of health is issuing pandemic orders for all but was a male child psychiatrist who now wears a dress. The Governor yells everyone to wear a mask and social isolate but attends a Social protest arm in arm with others. Just sick of the wackos running the show. Why does the fringe of society get to make the rules?

here's the dirty rotten little secret. the epidemic AND the rise in deaths is DUE TO THE LOOTERS AND RIOTING CRIMINALS NOT WEARING MASKS AND NOT KEEPING SEPARATED THE PRESCRIBED DISTANCE.

THIS IS WHAT IS SPREADING THE WOOHAANVIRUS. IT'S THE ONES NOT COOPERATING, THEY ARE THE ONES DELIBERATELY KILLING US WITH THEIR DISEASE.


THE RIOTERS ARE THE DISEASE CARRIERS AND SPREADERS


psssst, pass it along

Grizz, I couldn't agree more.

In fact, I go as far as to say that the protesters and rioters ARE the desease!!!
