Hittin’ The Road

A lot of businesses and families pulled up their stakes and fled the big cities in search of a better, less taxing life. Many of these movers fled the Northeast and their fascist governments for greener pastures down south.

The findings, along with a wealth of more granular detail, were included in the annual Magnet States Report on migration trends within the U.S. from Allied Van Lines, one of the world’s largest moving companies.

Within Texas — which benefited from a “business-friendly climate” — the city that drew the most companies was Houston, known as “Space City” for role in space operations by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

Texas is great, but why anyone would voluntarily move to Houston is beyond me. It’s Philadelphia with a better climate.

California ranked as the second-most popular destination for companies, followed by Illinois, Florida and North Carolina. The states had all been fan favorites within the corporate world prior to the pandemic, nabbing the top spots in 2019 as well.

I was going to ponder why any company would relocate TO California, but then I remembered most every company in America is run by leftists. So Cali would be the perfect destination.

California, Arizona and North Carolina were also top destinations for consumers over the course of 2020.

I don’t get this at all. Why would regular people move to California, considering it’s ridiculous policies and fascist politicians? I get the state is beautiful, but why would you want to suffer under progressive policies? Arizona is gorgeous – I love it there – as is North Carolina, but neither are on my retirement list. (Arizona taxes pensions, and North Carolina is eventually turning blue.)

Eventually I’m headed south as well. Tennessee, Alabama, Arkansas, or Mississippi is where I’m looking at the moment. Heavy red states with lower taxes and less disgusting politicians.
