Not long ago when NY decided to impose one of the stiffest Gun Laws in the nation upon it’s people Texas Decided to say to New Yorkers to come on down.
Now Governor Patrick of Massachusetts has decided to run his own ad for the Lone Star State in the form of his budget:
Gov. Deval Patrick has asked for $1.9 billion in new and increased taxes, and on Wednesday he reportedly advanced a plan that would expand the state’s budget by $2.6 billion – an 8.1 percent increase that would bring state spending to $34.8 billion.
This includes tax increases on soda, candy & gas, along with increased fees.
He is also talking about eliminating several tax deductions, counting on people in a bad economy willing to
be played for suckers gamble their money away and in the one sop in a pile of manure he proposes dropping the sales tax (from 6.25). The once sensible move in the entire stack.
Hey we re-elected this government and we deserve what we get but I’d think the Governor might allow Texas and other states to produce their own ads rather than creating a ready-made one for them with this budget.
Before the Governor’s budget a fellow on Twitter gave me this advice.

even with this new budget I’m unlikely to leave, but I have two sons in college and I can’t see either one staying, meaning unless I follow them Chris Christie’s prediction about airplane grandparents will come true.
and I suspect I won’t be alone.
