California Losing Porn Industry

The Los Angeles Daily News reports on a growing stream of porn producers and actors heading to Los Vegas to do their thing. Porn film license applications in Los Angeles dropped from 480 in 2012 to just 24 in the first 9 months of 2013. This, after Los Angeles County voters passed a law requiring condoms be worn during production of pornographic movies. 

Good to see the porn industry off to greener pastures as California gets what it deserves.

In related news, Fidelity lists California as the worst of all states to retire to. No surprise there, but I was surprised to see Oregon come in at third worst.

I love reading about Fred's RIP posts about California economy. Meanwhile, down here in the Bay Area, the growth and future prospects have never been greater. Our business climate is what pulled the state out of dept.

First, the state is not even close to being out of debt. The state owes tens, if not hundreds of billions in debt for public employee pensions and health care costs.

Second, the "balanced budget" such as it is, is the result of improved capital gains tax revenue- never mind the recent sales tax increase- not improved business. State revenues have always been heavily dependent on capital gains taxes, which is considered a problem by many.

Not to mention the new education tax that pretty much completely Goes to paying those pension funds that Fred is talking about and not to the classrooms which really need it. I love how since the government has totally discounted almost a hundred million Americans that are unemployed as not being unemployed because their not seeking unemployment benefits and then say unemploment is down and people actually buy that stupid s*** and think the recession is over when in fact all most a third of our population is on some kind of government assistance and I don't mean Social Security and over 99 million are not in the workforce whatsoever we now have more Americans that are unemployed and or on government assistance then there is in the workforce but the economy is doing just fine because the stock market is up right?
