The dark blue states are making themselves rather uncompetitive at an alarming rate. The Red States are attracting industry to come and set up shop. Eventually making certain states irrelevant.For an uninvolved observer from across The Pond, this is quite intriguing:
Caterpillar and Citadel, which in June announced their exit out of Illinois, are only the latest firms to leave high-tax, high-regulation states. Tesla, Hewlett Packard, Oracle, and Remington are also among the hundreds of companies flocking out of California, Illinois, New York, and New Jersey to business-friendly places like Texas, Florida, Arizona, and Tennessee. Relocating companies have spanned industries including tech, finance, media, heavy manufacturing, autos, and firearms.
“There is a great migration going on, and I expect it to accelerate,” Glen Hamer, president of the Texas Association of Business, told The Epoch Times. “When the Caterpillars and the Elon Musks relocate, it’s an advertisement to the entire country and the entire world that something positive is going on in that state. And there is a multiplier effect.”
According to a 2022 survey of 700 CEOs, the top states for business were Texas, Florida, Tennessee, Arizona, and North Carolina. The worst were California, New York, Illinois, New Jersey, and Washington.
Even companies like Apple, which did not move its headquarters to Texas, chose to establish its second-largest campus for employees there. Amazon selected Houston as one of its prime hubs. Ford, Volkswagen, and Nissan chose Tennessee as the location for major new manufacturing facilities. And in some cases, entire industries like firearms, which are being targeted by legislation and lawsuits in blue states, are moving south.

It appears ' The South Has Risen Again '
Adios cold Northern winters -we'all fer Dixie naow!
Typical of the Grauniad not to call that mob for the bunch of violent Communist scumbags that they are. A guy shoots dead four California cops? Not a flicker. They could not give a shit. California cops ventilate the shitbag? Riot and disorder. Violent Black felons Lives Matter, after all.
That said, using a commercial-grade flamethrower against their flag is more than a bit stupid. I just hope that the cops get him and that he faces justice.
I got first dibs!!
Do the police sell off confiscated flame flammenwerfer cheap/at auction?
Asking for a friend, natch.
Duh, everyone knows they are a just going to be used as an industrial popcorn popper… At least that is what I would write down!I am not asking what you two deviants want with a flamethrower as you'd probably come up with some stuff I'm thinking about doing with it too.

They don’t like conservative values, it offends them. It’s unlivable for the poor souls.You'll just have to hope that the halfwits who voted to destroy their jobs in those blue states don't tag along and shit in their nests in their new red state homes by doing the same thing.
3 cops and a K9 dog killed in Kentucky, by a guy who was wanted on a wife beating charge.
Happy Freedom Day, my overseas cousins.
When we were in Boston 2 weeks ago, my Frau threw the contents of a teabag* into the Harbour (honestly, she did - I even have video).
Unfortunately, due to prevalent winds, it blew back in her face - which, given the current (and preceeding) administration, seems appropriate.
*Liptons, so barely qualifies as Tea. You'd get a nicer flavour dredging up what's left of the original tea party in the harbour.
Obligatory shite meme:
