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."

South Dakota governor wooing California dairymen

A One Way Street
  • The GOP Governor of South Dakota is only the latest Governor visiting California businesses to steal away jobs to their states.
  • Funny, you never see Democrat Jerry Brown visiting neighboring states to bring jobs here.  I mean really, what would he say?  Come to California where we will tax and regulated the crap out of you.

An out-of-state governor was in the Central Valley on Wednesday on a recruiting mission. South Dakota's governor is trying to get California dairymen to set up shop in his state.
Gov. Dennis Daugaard (R-South Dakota) says local dairymen have plenty of room to grow in his state, and there's less regulations than in California.

Daugaard is flying into the Central Valley -- the country's dairy capitol. For the third year in a row, Daugaard has his sites set on recruitment.

"South Dakota offers some very good advantages for dairying. Our land is low priced, we have lots of forage," said Daugaard.

Daugaard will spend his time in Tulare at the World Ag Expo, talking to California dairymen.
"We've already identified over 400 different sites in several counties that could be considered for location of a dairy," said Daugaard.

The governor says he's already convinced a few dairy owners to make the move. But lifelong dairyman -- and owner of Maddox Dairy -- Stephen Maddox says while the opportunity may be great in a state with less regulation, there's one reason it'll be difficult to persuade the move.
"Anybody that moved back there in the last year or so is going through a little bit of a shock right now. That's one of the things you're going to have to give up if you move out of state, the weather is not so nice as California," said Maddox.

Gov. Daugaard's office claims it's not trying to steal our business owners, unlike Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who launched an ad campaign last year slamming California's business climate.
"We're here looking for dairymen who would be considering starting a new herd in South Dakota, maybe diversifying their operation. It doesn't mean they have to leave California," said Daugaard.
But his efforts to double South Dakota's dairy herd could work, especially since California is in such a dire drought.
Maddox says the governor's effort could also change the dairy perspective from local government.
"Well, sometimes you gotta be far away from home to be appreciated," said Maddox.

Gov. Daugaard will be in Tulare on Wednesday for the final day of the World Ag Expo -- hoping to convince a few more dairymen to begin work in the Mount Rushmore state.

Doesn't Food Come From Markets?
A clueless California public and most of the hack politicians they elect could care less about farm businesses and the thousands of jobs they create.  Farms are just something to be paved over to put up another strip mall.
