“The Jobs have come to Texas from California”

Looking at the title of this post, you might think that was a quote from the Perry Campaign or maybe from the National GOP contrasting a controlled GOP low regulation state like Texas to a high tax and regulation state like California.  That would be the natural reaction.

How wrong you would be if you thought so; that was a quote from Andrea Mitchell of NBC news during the 6 a.m. hour (repeated in the 8 a.m. hour) of MSNBC‘s Morning Joe.

Hearing this, you might then think:   “Well MSNBC must be talking about the advantages the Rick Perry has over Barack Obama if he is the nominee.”  Amazingly you would be wrong again.  This was part of an explanation why Governor Perry would have trouble selling his job creation record nationally with Mitchell saying (and I’m paraphrasing):  This isn’t something that you can apply nationally.

Really?  We can’t take nationally the equation:

Less regulation + low taxes = more jobs

as a national message?  Do I actually hear Andrea Mitchell and MSNBC saying this?

Even funnier was their complaints about the number of minimum wage jobs created.  We now have a situation where millions upon millions of Americans have burned through both 99 weeks of unemployment AND savings and reserves and Mitchell is actually complaining that the jobs created in Texas aren’t paying enough?

I’m reminded of  a quote from an old comic book Jon Sable Freelance about a children’s author who moonlights as a mercenary.  He is negotiating the price for his services to recover a stolen item with a potential client:

Sable:  My finders fee is 30%

Client:  That’s pretty steep!

Sable:  Depends on how you look at it, I’ve always thought 70% of something is worth more than 100% of nothing.

Unless you want to use the Soya Keaveney method of moving up,  minimum wage job looks pretty good when you have no job or way to pay the bills.

Mitchell and company completed their trifecta of cluelessness by complaining about the possibility of the Gasoline Tax expiring and what a bad thing it would be for the environment.

Yup with 9% unemployment and fuel prices raising the cost of everything from food to lumber MSNBC is complaining about a potential drop in gas prices for consumer’s nationwide.

Bottom line MSNBC may think a lot more of the  Arianna AOL lost 800 million last year and all I got was this lousy $315 mil Huffington method of wealth and job creation but outside of the MSM bubble where real people pay their bills and business’ struggle to stay open, that train of thought has not only left the station, the station has been closed and replaced by a liqueur store.

I’ll give the last word to  Erica Douglass, she may not be as chic with the inside crowd as the esteemed Ms Huffington but I think Mitchell learn a thing or two she heard this:

California just isn’t worth it. My priorities have changed. I value income freedom and flexibility more than I value living near the beach. I value having a paid-off house I can call “home” more than I value having a half-million-dollar noose around my neck that declines in value by the day…

…I’ll go run my business, create jobs, and continue to advocate for less government, fewer laws, and the freedom for us all to create more small businesses…from my new home in Austin, Texas!
