This comes as good news from the lone state that doesn't make its citizens pay state income taxes. Maybe the unaccountable liberal slobs in our state legislature will take a page from the Beaver state's book and start to act in a responsible way that begins to relieve our debt burden. Frugal is as frugal does.

"This comes as good news from the lone state that doesn't make its citizens pay state income taxes."

That is completely wrong. These states all pay no income tax.

Alaska
New Hampshire
Tennessee
Florida
South Dakota
Washington
Nevada
Texas

Thank you George but I wasn't completely wrong at all. Washington IS one of the states on that list you came up with. Anyway, I don't really see your point. That's why companies are fleeing to Alaska and Tennessee and Texas? California has to tear a page from their book that leads to our ability to start afresh without crawling under a crushing tax burden. Do you disagree that Frugal is as Frugal does?

I'm just saying get your facts straight. Companies did flee Texas back in the 80's. I was there.

Oregon is the "Beaver" State, not Washington.

Are you saying there aren't beavers in Washington? I didn't think so.

I was in Texas back then to. Then it was known to the insurance companies as TAXES not Texas and they all fled to Mexico and other states. Texas begged them all to come back. No insurance companies, no jobs. Well the long and short of it is that since then Texas has been in good shape and everybody wants to move there.

Just think about it. Living in a state with no taxes, no unfunded liabilities, and where you get an accountable government. Rick Perry wants Texas to suceed from the US. If it works I'm headed back there just as fast as my pony will take me.
