    Rick Perry has become a figurehead for idiots. The world of women pregnant and barefoot in the kitchen is over. Blacks are not going to the back of the Bus unless they choose to be there and homosexuals have the right to breathe air. We are not going back to the days that Rick Perry and the extremists want. The 50's were a great time in fictionland but they were never good for minorities or women in Realityland. Your time is over Rick Perry, go on back to your racist named ranch and remember the good old days when it was alright to use the N Word in common conversation.

    Have 3 things I want to say: 1) Racists have rights, don't they? 2) The '50's were a fun time (or so I was told) AND 3) UMM.......I forgot number 3....HMMM, let's see.....it was right there.....jeez... <sarcasm>

    What on earth are you talking about? Of course he believes none of what you are yapping about. So 99.9% of your lunatic rant is moot- useless.(as usual)

    He is welcoming folks for a more vibrant, safer,free economy in his state. Something liberals hate.

    Notice they want the 50s without the economic policies of the 50s like strong labor unions and high taxes on the wealthy?

    California has been trying to drive business away for years. If Texas opens their arms to them I bet they could lure more than a few away. Brown's response is typical California, arrogant clueless snobs who think everyone wants to be in California and would even pay for the right to live in the state.

    Rick Perry ....."Take Your Business to Texas...." The states ran by the democrat party like Illinois and about 17 othe states that are ran by democrats show their disfavor for business by taxing the H### of them and regulating business, out of business, thereby costing America workers their jobs. To paraphrase a movie dealing with a baseball field, "If we build it, they will come,"
    Democrats apparently believe,"If we regulate and tax the H### out of business,they will leave the state" and take their jobs with them to a state that appreciates and wants jobs for their citizens.Rick Perry says to business,you all, come on down, welcome!

    Californians with small businesses are already leaving the state. Many of my family left California in the 1970's during the first Jerry Brown governorship, and took their businesses with them (My father, uncle, and grandfather were all self-employed). They could see the socialist handwriting on the wall. Las Vegas, Nevada, was literally "Made in California". It's exponential growth during the 80's and 90's was primary due to people leaving California. Rick Perry is merely capitalizing on existing sentiment among businesspeople in California, and inviting people to build their lives and businesses in a more free environment. Fewer producers and more takers are precisely the reason for California's constant economic troubles, and they haven't learned their lesson yet.

    @CaryNickel "It's exponential growth during the 80's and 90's was primary due to people leaving California. "

    Wasn't there somethig about a tremendous development boom as casinos overbuilt? And aren't they out of water in Nevada?

    Know what is sad. Liberals HATE that businesses won't stay put and keep paying bloated taxes for decades of failed programs.

    Sadder Yet: If Toyota proposed a 4 billion dollar plant in DETROIT- and would hire 150000 people. Detroit would turn it down because they aren't union.

    That's the reality we have today.

    Some will. I don't like him, but give Perry credit for doing his job. But business owners are people too. Most want to live somewhere they enjoy, and most californians won't enjoy tex ass. Although many would love austin.

    @hankf68 where do they live austin or ca.? I lived in ca. About a decade. Left about a year ago, but it wasn't cause of taxes...

    Please Governor Perry...I love TX the way it is....don't encourage any more of those California liberals to move to TX...they will ruin the great state of TX.

    Cali (as a whole) isn't "liberal",(5) counties as a whole make up 20 of 38 million residents of Cali. Those counties are LA, Orange, Riverside, San Diego and San Bernadino (all within 90 miles of L.A. itself). There's the liberals.

    @stepped_in_it That is just Southern CA...Don't forget those Pelosi loving San Francisco liberals. liberalism is all over CA.

    @Emerald1 Throwing in San Fran adds another 1+ million liberals. Throw in Sacramento will add another 1+ million also. Now, those (7) areas = 22 of 38 million but only equals approx 1/50th of the land mass of Cali. Half of Cali's counties voted red....but the state was "100%" blue. Similar to the red/blue voting in the last election. Blue took the major metros.....red took the rest (for the most part)

    As a California business person with 30 employees, much of my work is now done in neighboring states, and we are considering relocating to a more friendly environment. Sad because CA is such a great place aside from the ass monkeys that run the joint.

    You always know when you are getting the best of someone...they make silly little remarks...Little Ole Jerry ain't likin' Perry's tactics at all because he sees the data and it hurts.

    California is broke, and texas is a state of expanding opportunity. I'll bet corporations are paying a nhigher tax rate in Cali than Texas.

    We, here in North Texas, have not been affected at all that I can tell by the stagnant economy. Plenty of jobs. Plenty of high paying jobs. Construction everywhere, both homes and businesses. I mean everywhere. It has accelerated if it has done anything over the last four years. We must be doing something right.
  • #94

    The positive point of all this may be that he wakes up the reality of being in business friendly states that are realistically managing the business of employees and corporations.

    @ZappaCrappa Even in the poor, po-dunk county I live in here in North Texas is seeing quite a bit of new homes being built. My county has very little industry but there are 2 new lakes being planned...just for the Dallas metro area. Got to have water to attract more industry!

    @ZappaCrappa If you have lived in the North Texas area a long time, do you remember if you blinked going through Frisco you would miss it? I have never seen such a small town grow as big and as fast as it has. Good businesses that pay well based on the sizes and prices of the homes there. Very affluent area! And it is heading northeast towards my county!

    Rick Perry at a public convention to attract business to Texas: " Okay ladies and gentlemen, entrepreneurs of all ages and all levels, there a 4 distinctive reason for moving or setting up your operations in Texas. First: Texas is offering tax incentives and waiving municipal fees to help get you started. 2nd, The state's commercial rent rates are some of the lowest per square foot in the country. 3rd.....uh, I have that written down somewhere, now let me see, hmm wait a minute...... we are offering tax incentives...oh I already said that.....umm..... Texas has 2 really good reasons for you to do business there!

    Your comments having to do with Rick Perry's lapse of memory was funny. Rick Perry though, is smart enough to know that business is good for American workers and good for Texas.

    Texas has lured lotsa big businesses to the state. Relaxed standards for pollution, safety, and employee rights is very attractive to many corporations that don't like to do the right thing. However, no sales tax is a trick. It is made up for in cost of property and other taxes, fees, and fines.

    Perry's message won't change things in California. State officials have led taxpayers down the green mile and now that the Dems have a "super" majority they're poised to deliver the coup de grace with higher taxes, more regulations, and hi-speed rail.

    It's a great idea, although I'm not sure Perry is the best face to put on that. Maybe they could find someone from their business community with a little more charisma.

    Nicely done, Gov Perry - crowing over the economic health your state without mentioning it was accomplished largely by underfunding education and healthcare, not to mention a few billion in stimulus funds.

    But I guess if your business can do all right with under trained and uninsured employees, Texas might be the place for you.

    pssst. To get their budget under control CA cut billions from education. and public services.

    Funny thing is I just looked up the stats on education and Texas slightly beats Cali. Both get an F in spending and yes Texas is slightly worse than Cali yet you have a slightly better chance of success in Texas........humm. Early childhood education and college readiness are better in Texas than Cali.......humm. This is from Education Week the Feb. 11, 2013 edition vol 21 issue 16. Another site showing percentages of high school graduates as Texas kicking Cali's butt. Also Cali has the worst rating for air pollution for all 50 states..........wow. Yes, health rankings does show Cali does better than Texas but funny thing is the rates for obesity and diabetes are climbing in both states......as everywhere. Last but not least........there are more states that have an overall better rating for healthcare than Cali than don't. Yes, Cali does better than Texas for healthcare but it's still behind most other states.

    I would not want my kids educated in Texas schools. I want my kids to learn real science, not creationism or similar trash. I might leave California, but it wouldn't be for Texas. Maybe Florida or Georgia.
