Leave California or Go Bust!

California or Bust!

Expression during gold rush days

California is a wonderful place to live – if you happen to be an orange.

Fred Allen (1894-1956), American comedian

In Gold Rush days, it was "go to California",

Or go  bust  seeking a financial bonanza.

These days,  it is " leave the Golden State",

Or go bust from taxes, rules, and other freight.

From California there is an exodus,

Resulting from business restlessness,

California is no longer for middle classes,

It's for the super rich and  poorer classes.

That ‘s why it’s such  fertile ObamaCare ground.

There the rich,  young uninsured, and poor abound.

Tweet:  Because of high taxes and onerous regulations,  a business and middle class  exodus from California  is occurring,  leaving the poor and uninsured in its wake.
