"Let my people go"

The Blue State Exodus continues.........

The Lone Star State is scooping up more than just our congressional seats -- some $846 million in personal income shifted from New York to Texas in an eight-year period during the last decade, according to an analysis of IRS tax returns.

Texas, which has no state or local income taxes and an enviably low cost of living, has been steadily poaching New Yorkers since the '90s, according to data from the Tax Foundation, a nonpartisan tax research organization based in Washington.

From 2000 to 2008, more than $846 million in personal income moved from New York to Texas -- with more than $212 million leaving in 2006 and '07.

I don't like the term poaching here. It's not like Governor Perry is rolling into New York rounding up the believers and telling Pharaohs Bloomberg and Paterson to let his people go.

But that is probably the only difference between the stories.

See, in so many ways, the Blue State Exodus mirrors the Biblical account of Moses leading the Jews from the Pharaohs.

Think about it. Taxpayers in NY, OH, MI, NJ etc. work so that the pharaohs of these state and local governments can seize the fruits of their labor, by force, to do what these please.

The plagues of locusts, frogs, death, etc. have been largely self induced pain caused brought about by the pharaohs own arrogance and defiance to truth. If you think about it, even the liberal abortion laws in these states has resulted in the death of the first born to many couples.

People fleeing the Pharaohs, need only cross the Ohio, the Hudson the Delaware to find freedom in the Promised Land.

Do you think the Pharaohs will be smart enough to give up their arrogance to avoid further migration out of town?

Let's just say we'll let Mike Bloomberg turn off the lights when he leaves.
