    Texas governor woos Vernon businesses

    'If California doesn't want your business, Texas does,' say his emails to employers in Vernon. They say a state Assembly bill could eliminate many of the tax and operating-cost advantages they enjoy.

    "Texas is reaching out to the companies that are here that might be interested in moving," said Jose Gavina, vice president of F. Gavina & Sons Inc., a large family-owned coffee roaster with customers nationwide. "I would love to be able to stay here, but we need to move where it's best for the company."

    This pisses me off no end.

    Not at Gov, Perry he is doing right, but at all the people here in California who have allowed the Liberals to screw up this State.

    I was out of the State for about 29 years and got involved in politics in AZ and learned how things work and who is at fault for where we are.

    We seem to blame the Liberal wackos when the real fault is our for letting them get their way without an honest straight up fight for what is right.

    We allowed the Left to use their underhanded tactics to frighten us out of doing what was right and stopping the stupidity that haunts us today.

    I agree. I love California, lived in three of LA's counties and have family there owning and operating a manufacturing business and this is the exact medicine that will budge a once business friendly, now business hostile state towards realizing business can't afford California's Leftist idiocy.

    It is a tough fight when you have journOlists masquerading as journalists. They have assisted with producing ignorance... add the schools and it's a big but not impossible hurdle. First thing is to nominate candidates that are Conservative. Of course, we see what they left has tried with the Tea Party. They've tossed out every possible bit of slime to try and paint these people as other than a grassroots effort of concerned citizens wanting their country back from the socialist perversion that has gummed up our society and put it in massive debt...

    Hence the cheer leading for Gov. Perry's actions.

    Maybe this 'corporate raiding' is the way to beat Democrats. I'm all for it.

    Right now, Democratic Governor Quinn (IL) is tooting his horn that he's negotiated a $100 billion tax incentive deal with Motorola to keep them in Illinois. Tooting his horn!! He's currently negotiating with Caterpillar and Sears where he'll undoubtedly have to give away the store to keep these, and who knows how many other, employment engines in the state.

    That's with his left hand. With his right, he's raised state income tax on individuals by 75% and increased the corporate rate from a flat 7.3% to a flat 9.5% -- making Illinois the 4th highest corporate taxing state in the nation.

    And with his third hand (ha!) he's making sure that pension income remains exempt from state income tax to protect the Democratic cash cow -- union donors.

    Say what you want about him, but Perry's in it for the state. Even if he is sometimes misguided (removing the cap on tuition for higher education, staying silent when the state BOE took a chainsaw to many of our most important subjects, complaining about not receiving federal disaster aid after taunting the fed about spending, etc), he's determined to show Texas as a strong, prosperous state. For the most part, we are. We did better during the recession than many other states.
