Residents of California have been leaving the state in droves over the last few years due to radical policies and high prices governing the state. Many former residents have been settling in more politically red states, such as Florida and Texas, which have seen immense population growth. California is the home of Hollywood, the center of the film industry. Actor Dennis Quaid explained to "Jesse Watters Primetime" why there is a push from actors to move the film industry out of California to Texas. "We want to make Texas the film capital of the world. That's what Texas used to


But do Texans want them?

OP: NO! Virtually all the people involved in the film industry are liberals or farther Left, not to mention their thought patterns seem to favor emotionalism over rationalism. We already have Austin, we don't need Hollywood, too.

A move to Texas from Ca. would increase their income by at least 25%. That is the easiest business decision anyone could make.

No!! Don’t come to Florida or Texas. Unless you’re willing to embrace sanity and what used to be called American exceptionalism we don’t want you.

I've started to see more and more videos from people who have moved to either Florida or Texas. I have a friend who lives in Texas who when going out into his backyard and had to kill a five-foot-long diamond back rattler before letting his young daughter out to play. Later while moving some boxes to find a certain toy which was located in the garage, he had to kill a scorpion which found it's way into the box. So, before moving to Texas realize there may be some issues one might have to deal with in your new state. In Florida, it's the mandatory insurance for tropical storms, hurricanes, and flooding. Insurance which apparently is expensive and is required for every home no matter where you live in the state. This is something quite a few people who are moving there suddenly realize that it's an expense they didn't factor in and makes the cost of living more than they bargained for not to mention the gators and pythons that might make a meal of your pets. So do your homework before making that move.

As I said #9. Put them in Travis county with their progressive brothers. That way they can only screw up one already screwed up county. They can live with the tent cities in Austin which by the way are illegal within 4 blocks of City Hall or the State Capitol building (of course).

#7, don’t forget the HUGE roaches! A few decades ago there was a competition between FL and TX to see which had the biggest roaches. I don’t remember who won but I grew up in Florida and know that you can step on them and they just walk away. Plus, they fly.

Dennis Quaid making a vain attempt to attract attention to himself, to resurrect his dead career that he killed with his self-admitted daily cocaine addiction. He features Matthew McConaughey as one of his “California actors” who wants to join him in Texas. Matthew is a Texan, UT graduate and avid supporter, who even ran for governor. Quaid is in a very deep rahbit hole.

Suggest 2 places to move to: Rio Grande Valley is on the border and has palm trees, just like L.A., and there's no illegal invasion, according to your Big Guy, Biden. Austin is already full of elitist deviants, so Ho-wood people would be quite comfortable. The rest of Texas has way too many snakes, bugs, guns and normal human beings, so stay away, it's not a "safe space." Don't Mess with Texas!

People moving from Ca to Texas is not, for the most part, a win for the right side. It's an attempt to turn Texas blue and should not be celebrated as a win. Remember, these people play the long game. Most of the people in this state are brainwashed to cult levels and will not change their politics. They are parasites that will eat their hosts. If you want proof, just look to N.H. All the dopes destroyed Mass and then moved on to N.H. and destroyed that state.

Despite having lived next door In New Mexico for many years, I can honestly say I like Texas and most of the people I met there. The state rivalry didnt work for me. Thats why I would hate for Californians to ruin Texas Like they did New Mexico. Its bad enough they infected the small towns and outbid the locals on homes, then got into city councils and turned those same small towns into California. They and their values got into state government and made the place unlivable. I left there 15 years ago and dont miss it.

#7, #11 And ANOTHER thing - the humidity, in both Texas and Florida. Being a native of one and the citizen of the other, I'll put the Florida Panhandle around Tallahassee up against the bayous of Houston any day. Californians will just lay down and swelter into a puddle. They were showing the original version of "The Yearling" on the Movie Channel. The commentator said the director wanted to film on the book's real locations, somewhat south of the panhandle, just as it joins the peninsula - Florida's Big Bend. This was 1946, so no air conditioning. The director, actors and film crew managed to stick it out for two weeks before they retreated back to California.

They are already in Georgia. Especially south of Atlanta, Peachtree City area. Senoia was the place for many movies in the last 30 years. Walking Dead was headquartered in Senoia. Netflix Stranger Things had big scenes filmed at my local grocery store. Huge sound stages are under construction. This is in addition to the huge soundstages that have already been built in the last 15 years. There is an entire town west of Fayetteville that was created in just the last 15 years out of farm land. It is not uncommon to see well known actors at restaurants in Peachtree City. Use Google street view for Trilith Studios. Zoom in on Trilith Pkwy. All that was pine tree forests and farm land 15 years ago. And now another huge studio being built at the corner of Tyrone Rd. and Hiway 54. It's kinda exciting and scary at the same time. I hope all those actors don't take up residence and start voting.

Markey’s Judiciary Act of 2023, which pro-abortion groups Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice America endorsed, would add four seats to the Supreme Court.

It’s Night of the Living Dead among Democrats in the halls of the nation’s Capitol. Let’s begin with the footage of Sen.

CONEY ISLAND, Brooklyn -- Three more buses carrying asylum seekers arrived at Port Authority on Saturday morning as backlash continues against New York City's plans on where to house the migrants. (Snip) New York City officials continue to look for places to house the influx of asylum seekers, and now one new place under consideration is PS 188 at the far end of Coney Island. Its standalone gym, not currently being used by the school, is among the sites the city intends to house adult migrants. Councilmember Ari Kagan says there has been an utter lack of communication from City Hall.

President Biden remained mum on Friday as chaos continues unfolding at the southern border following the expiration of Title 42. Title 42, the Trump-era policy that was implemented during the COVID pandemic that deterred border crossings due to health concerns, lapsed overnight, prompting thousands of migrants to come to the US-Mexico border hoping to gain entry. Press were allowed in the Oval Office for Biden's bilateral meeting with Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez Friday, but White House staff pushed reporters out of the room as they shouted questions to the president.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams referred to Rockland County Executive Ed Day as racist and antisemitic Thursday, comparing him to Texas Gov.

It’s time for gay and bisexual men to pay attention to mpox, formerly known as monkeypox, again. That’s the message from public health authorities and LGBT health providers as cases rise in some countries and small clusters of infections in vaccinated people have been detected in Chicago and France. The World Health Organization on May 11 said mpox no longer presents a public health emergency of international concern because global cases have declined and countries are better equipped to respond, but that doesn’t mean the threat is eliminated. Last year’s mpox outbreak started in the spring, driven in part by

It also reflects how they will do it.

As the presidential primary season commences, many career politicians, “experts,” and news outlets have already made one thing abundantly clear. “While Donald Trump might win the nomination, he has no path to win the general election” they say, or something to that affect. Some suggest that even Trump and his supporters secretly know this. These are bold statements for anybody to make so early in a primary cycle, let alone people who have decades of political experience. The average person could easily read those quotes attached to prominent names and assume they must be true. But as we have seen time and again
