Energy production jobs are good, middle-class manufacturing jobs. Texas is reveling in the creation of such jobs. California is against them, favoring instead two kinds of jobs: high-tech jobs for those with IQs higher than 180. “Service” jobs that pay minimum wage.

“In March, Texas oil production reached its highest level since 1984. That month, the Lone Star State pumped more than 74 million barrels of crude from the ground, which means if Texas were a country, it would be one of the 15 largest oil producers in the world….

“Texas’ oil output has doubled in less than three years, putting it in the ranks of OPEC heavy-hitters[2] like Venezuela, Kuwait and Nigeria.”

Here’s a graph of Texas’ surging oil production.

By contrast, here’s a graph of California’s oil production:


That’s just pathetic.

Meanwhile, the cost of living keeps going up throughout California, especially the cost of housing.

The idea is to drive out as many middle-class people as possible, leaving behind only digital oligarch in Silicon Valley and San Francisco; government workers with their massive pay, perks and pensions; and peons serving the first two classes while living in hovels.
