THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CALIFORNIA - This site is dedicated to exposing the continuing Marxist Revolution in California and the all around massive stupidity of Socialists, Luddites, Communists, Fellow Travelers and of Liberalism in all of its ugly forms.

"It was a splendid population - for all the slow, sleepy, sluggish-brained sloths stayed at home - you never find that sort of people among pioneers - you cannot build pioneers out of that sort of material. It was that population that gave to California a name for getting up astounding enterprises and rushing them through with a magnificent dash and daring and a recklessness of cost or consequences, which she bears unto this day - and when she projects a new surprise the grave world smiles as usual and says, "Well, that is California all over."

George Lucas: Why California does not work

George Lucas is closing up shop in Marin County, California.
The business climate is shipping jobs out of the state.

George Lucas and the jobs he creates are leaving

  • Lucas will no longer build a film studio.
  • Will he leave the state for Texas, Florida or even New Zealand?
  • The Socialist Democrats in Sacramento are clueless.

A top Lucasfilm official says it is "too late" for George Lucas to reconsider his decision to pull the plug on plans for Grady Ranch.
Lynne Hale, director of communications for Lucasfilm, said that while the firm appreciates the unprecedented outpouring of public support for the company triggered by news the filmmaker was scuttling a film studio project at the ranch, there's no turning back now.
"We have to move on," she told the Marin Independent Journal.

Hale underscored her point: "You asked if Lucasfilm would reconsider. Unfortunately the answer is no. We truly appreciate the outpouring of support over the last 24 hours but based on our experience we realize that even with the support of the majority, the minority has the ability to drag the process out to the point it makes it impossible to do business."
A last-minute bid by state and federal fisheries and water agencies for more review of a unique creek restoration project, and bitter opposition from Lucas Valley Estate residents including developer and next-door neighbor Thomas Monahan, posed more delay and potential lawsuits, prompting Lucas to bail out after spending millions and years pursuing the plan. The creek project promised to be a model watershed restoration program — one far too expensive for public agencies to finance.
As Lucas executives said they would sell the land for housing development and build the studio elsewhere, a raucous conversation raged online across Marin as residents chimed in, many expressing support for Lucas and contempt for neighborhood foes.

Jobs are leaving the People's Republic of California.

The Mega Hit movie "Fast & Furious 5" was filmed in Brazil and Puerto Rico.  The Socialists in the California legislature fail to understand how high taxes are forcing the jobs in the movie industry to leave the state.

They also fail to understand a simple fact.  With all the nations of the world to chose from, what  businessmen would open up a new business in high tax - high regulation California?

The game show "Family Feud" moved to Atlanta, Georgia.
