Well, here we go again ... another so-called "article" on the great California business exodus. I eagerly went to the link in hopes of finding some actual data to support (or deny) the reality of the headline. Once again, I got bupkis ... nada ... zip ... zero.

If you're gonna post an opinion, fine ... just say "seems to me like I see blather such and so" ... If you're gonna make a declaration, back it up. And not with, "I saw an empty storefront yesterday."

This is a popular topic in the media ... it gets attention and sells in the current economic / political climate ... and, so far, I haven't seen any credible comparative data. It may be true that more businesses are leaving the state than moving in and starting up. It may be true that the reasons are California has a restrictive business climate for more kinds of businesses than it has a favorable one. But no article of credible investigative journalism has yet presented data to show these headlines are accurate -- and, importantly, that California fares worse than any number of other states experiencing business loss in this economy.

California has just retaken the crown of largest jobs creator back from Texas for the last 12-month period.

Perhaps the socialists arent wrong?

Perhaps if you lobby Rick Perry to create a bunch of govt jobs to inflate TXs jobs numbers like he's been doing for a long time, you might surpass California again, but in the meantime, NO-California is actually back on top.
