California Humor

California is a beautiful state, but it seems politicians are trying to drive away people and businesses with terrible policies.

And here’s a satirical video about the exodus.

Our second item reminds me of the famous joke comparing coyotes in California and Texas.

Next we have a grim look at the state’s possible future.

For our fourth item, here are some excerpts from an article published by America’s top site for political satire, the Babylon Bee.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis flew 50 migrants to an affluent island in Massachusetts… Progressives have labeled the action as “cruel” and “heartless,” but when California governor Gavin Newsom volunteered asylum for the migrants in his own state, they declined the offer since they had only recently escaped a collapsing communist state without electricity. …The migrants say that California’s trash-littered sidewalks, water shortages, and electrical outages bear too much resemblance to the Venezuela they left behind for it to be a desirable destination. …At publishing time, Newsom had reiterated his offer in a video at his $5 million home, gesturing to the plentiful electricity around him, but migrants have said that this reminds them too much of the opulence enjoyed by Chavez and then Maduro while they wreaked havoc on the nation.

Per tradition, I’ve saved the best for last.

With so many businesses and middle-class households fleeing California, here’s a helpful reminder that they should not push for dirigiste policies in their new states.

P.S. For what it’s worth, there’s actually some evidence that the folks moving into Texas are more conservative than average. Though I wonder if Colorado has been pushed to the left by California migrants. Let’s hope not since TABOR is definitely worth preserving.

P.P.S. Other California-themed jokes (not counting the state’s elected officials) can be found here, here, herehere, and here.

P.P.P.S. And here’s something I wish was just a joke.
