Gov. Perry woos California
businesses with radio ads

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 2/4/2013 10:59:58 PM

AUSTIN - Texas Gov. Rick Perry is airing radio ads in California to convince companies there to relocate to the Lone Star state. A public-private marketing partnership called TexasOne is paying for the 30-second advertisement that touts the state´s low taxes and industry-friendly regulations along with strict limits on lawsuits. In the ad, Perry says that he hears "building a business in California is next to impossible." He calls on California businesses to "come check out Texas."

Californicate is a word we know all to well here on the west coast. Texans would do well to learn it and shut their stupid Governor UP!

Next up: California passes a poison- pill business “death” tax making it prohibitively expensive for people and businesses to move out of state.

Dear Texas,

Just don´t let them infiltrate any governing positions, or they will ruin your state like they did here in Colorao.

They must present evidence they vote for conservatives before being allowed in.

(Applause) This is EXACTLY what the United STATES is about - state competition. Romney never passed Federal one size fit all health care for all Americans - he passed Massachussetts healthcare. If you dont like it, you can move to Vermont.

If Colorado want to allow gay marriage partners to smoke pot - GREAT! Then move to Utah where you can actually raise a family.

It’ll work well for some, not so well for others. Those who come expecting free stuff may be disappointed.

There is going to be an emigration of makers from Blue to Red states, and an immigration to Blue states of takers. The Blue taker states will increasingly demand the money generated in the Red maker states. The cause of the problem, Barack Obama, will summon his kingly powers and "redistribute" out of "fairness" from Red to Blue, with the full cooperation of a corrupt, sycophant press.

It´s getting easier to predict the future, now that opposition to "helping people" a la Democrat-Marxism no longer has any real effect.

Think of it as redistribution of voters or the trail to the new reservation when people segregate.

Perry just wants California businesses to relocate, not the California bubble brains that act on emotions not reason. They can stay in California with Gov. Alice B. Toklass Brownie.

Most liberals in CA are so haughty and snooty that they would never consider relocating to red neck Texas. So the businesses come here and only the down-to-earth people will come with them. Let the libs stay behind and wallow in CA.

I have worked with many of these people and know what I am talking about. In fact, one guy asked me point blank about how he would be treated in Texas as a gay, Jewish, liberal. I told him I couldn´t speak from experience so couldn´t answer his questions, but he didn´t take the job so I guess he self selected out.

I predict we will see a realignment of people where the red states end up with all the conservatives and blue states all the libs and mooches. This is why I think we ought to make it official and divvy up the country sooner rather than later.

It´s not that easy to just pack up and move to another state. You have relocation costs,rehiring a retraining a workforce and in this case leaving a scenic California behind.
Somebody needs to be able to sit down with a calculator and figure out how long it will take for a payback on relocation costs,then you have to worry about Frank/Dodd getting in the way of a loan to pay for it.

It´s hard to believe these days but there are employers who really care about their employees and don´t want to see them being another number on Obama´s weekly tally of jobs lost.

Pat of immigration reform should be doing away with sanctuary cities and states and deny them federal funding if they violate it. I can´t think of a more sanctuary state than cal. and that´s why they´re broke.Every illegal has a bureaucrat behind them making a high salary and benefits which doubles the cost problems.

The federal government won´t reimburse the prison system for housing illegals,even though it´s a federal failure of these people being here.

I´m waiting for Brown and his buddy demonrats to style a law following the Hildebeast´s -- If you want to leave, CA will confiscate your money by taxes and fines.

Social Security stops trying

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project. That would be all well and good except for the fact that the

Democrats Lose Two More Special
Elections They Didn’t Expect To

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on




Nevada ranch standoff could leave
dirt on Harry Reid’s reputation

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

Democrats settle on fairness

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

For Hillary Clinton and Boeing,

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Three people were shot and killed Sunday afternoon in suburban Kansas City, and a spokeswoman for a local hospital said a 15-year-old boy is in critical condition. Overland Park city spokesman Sean Reilly says two people died at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City campus and one was killed at Village Shalom, which is a retirement community that is several blocks away from the center. Overland Park Fire Department spokesman Jason Rhodes said Sunday afternoon that one person of interest is in custody. The Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City in Overland Park

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
