We rank 40th out of 50 as a place to do business. Down near Mississippi. Why don't our Sacramento politicans recognize this and work on it? Maybe they should visit Texas and learn from them.

Texas is #1.

CA did get an honorable mention. Tied for first as the place to get money.

Elementary! Because they don't care about the state or the people; just their next re-election or next higher office. Yet the sheeple keep voting for them. Go figure!

I think I'm going to scream if I read yet another post about how CA sucks.

They are pointless, trolling, and the responses inevitably fall into;

1. No it isn't.
2. Yes it is.
3. <insert another state name here> is better.
4. <insert another state name here> no it isn't.
5. The government sucks. News flash, they all do.

I'd like to also suggest that for those who post that they are moving away and why, that;

1. We generally don't care if you move away.
2. Post only when you aren't within the borders of CA. Even then we still won't care.
3. Enjoy your new found state and post in that forum how much better off you are now that you don't live in CA. At least we will be spared from reading it.

Yes? We should improve the business climate for California so that it will become even more crowded, expensive, and unmanageable?

California business is doing fine enough to have created and continued managing the finest, economy in the nation, and 8th finest in the world -- EXCEPT for the temporary national and world economic crisis which has hit hard. California's business climate didn't cause the recession. Stop "conflating" () the two issues.

So one responds with "stop giving me bad news". And the other with "it's good that CA is in the cellar".

Geez.

But it isn't bad news ... and the state isn't in the cellar at all ...
California is the top GDP state and world's 8th largest economy.

So why is it struggling with so many difficult economic challenges now?
Because we are in a HUGE WORLDWIDE recession -- one in which California is uniquely well positioned to grow itself out of over time as the rest of the world also normalizes.

But many whiny Americans don't have any experience living through challenges ... and don't appear to have the spine for the fight.

Just. Go. Away.

Here's a big part of the problem. The Sacramento politicians spend too much time making laws. The Texas legislature won't even meet this year. Meanwhile the CA legislature will meet from January to the end of August. Too much time spent causing mischief:

True then and now.

I guess you don't need to care about our problem with businesses leaving the state so long as you've got a cushy government job. What about the 11% (real number is closer to 20%) of Californian's who are unemployed. Should they be comforted by the notion that we have the world's 8th economy bla, bla..?

why alot of Californians said they don't care if companies are leaving. At the end of last year, there is a big company in my area call Waste Connections left and moved To Texas, then why people in the city got mad?

Not caring + ignoring reality = nothing's going to change for the better anytime soon!
