As Jobs Flee California ...

... Californians work to make jobs flee even faster:

"On Jan. 1, it will become the first state in the nation to charge industries across the economy for the greenhouse gases they emit. Under the system, known as “cap and trade,” the state will set an overall ceiling on those emissions and assign allowable emission amounts for individual polluters. A portion of these so-called allowances will be allocated to utilities, manufacturers and others; the remainder will be auctioned off."

The kind of stuff only an idiot or a liberal could believe:

"Over time, the number of allowances issued by the state will be reduced, which should force a reduction in emissions."

While true, that reduction in emissions will only come about as an indirect consequence of there being no business - industrial or commercial - activity there that is capable of generating emissions.  Business will have  packed its bags and moved to Texas.

Goal achieved, right fellas?

The looming economic collapse couldn't come to a more deserving bunch.
