Looks like two charts that say the same thing but proportionately reflecting their differences in population.
CA's is most likely reflecting illegal gardeners and house cleaners as employment.
You're gonna need more than that before you get cocky...#die

That's exactly why I laugh when I hear Californians squawk about secession. All we have to do is cut off the flow of water and electricity too the LA basin and it returns to it's original state...Desert chaparral. All the tree humpers that cry about the environment and have manicured lawns in Belair are Hippocratic!

You always get defeated because you never bring anything substantial . You just post the same 3 out of context graphs, then stick your head back in the ground. It's because your head is in the sand that this election is so shocking to you.

Didn't we already do this one??

Of course California has the largest economy in the United States!! It has the largest population by a huge margin! To be specific, it has 12 million more people living there than the second most populous state Texas.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o..._by_population

The more relevant question is how are they doing per capita? This tells you how much

California ranks 14th nationally in per capita GDP, 3rd in median household income and 15th in per capita income. California ranks 35th in poverty rate.

Of course, cost of living in Cali eats into those high incomes pretty fast. Wasn't able to find a ranking for that though I did find this:



California is a fine state. I used to live there and I liked it. I also don't see the people of California seceding from the USA anytime soon either. They are deeply integrated into the United States and much that is in California is so very fundamentally American.

A few quick notes:
1) TX /= KS
2) 10 worst unemployment states are 5 dem 5 gop
3) 10 best unemployment states are 4 dem 6 gop.
4) KS experimented in extreme tax cuts. There is a thing called moderation. Brownback has no concept of this. Main street republican business owners have been supplanted by hard core anti government types who hate all government programs except the ones they benefit from. Note taking your state into perpetual budget cuts actually deters business from locating there. Business hate taxes. They also hate instability.
5) CA has a few tiny* advantages like Pacific seaports. *sarcasm
6) If taxes were the only factor, NYC would be full of tumbleweeds, not billionaires.

Affluent students predominate at liberal-arts colleges like Oberlin and Bates, private universities like Cornell and Texas Christian and even many public universities, including Wisconsin, Penn State and Georgia Tech. The University of California, by contrast, enrolls a large number of high-performing students of all economic backgrounds.

That contrast is the most striking result of this yearís College Access Index, a New York Times measure of economic diversity at top colleges. Six of the top seven spots in this yearís index belong to University of California campuses, with Irvine at No. 1, and the flagship Berkeley campus at No. 7...

California more than anywhere in the world, has brought the possibility of a world class education to all people, not just wealthy offspring of already educated and affluent parents.

This has brought immeasurable dividends to millions of immigrants and in return they have contributed to building what has become the most dynamic economy of any state.
