Why would any business want to stay in that Liberal cesspool of a State with it's anti-business climate...

I don't know. 8th Largest economy in the world and 15% of the total US GDP maybe a clue.

As much as I can't stand Brown he was not unhappy with the Ad's but the dumb assed reporters asking him stupid questions. I spent more on advertising last year on my small 10 employee company than 24 thousand.

Damn, Beyonce is cute... Her and Dr. Pepper are about the only things on that list I care about. Isn't TX pretty bad about creating high income jobs though? I thought I read that TX was only creating low income jobs and most of the companies weren't starting in TX, rather, just moving there.

Anyone with the option would be out of their mind not to leave California. There are much better places to run a business.
California is run by a bunch of idiotic bureaucrats and teachers unions who have created the most unfriendly business and resident environment west of the Mississippi.
Jerry Brown needs to pound a yard of sand up his backside.

Gov Brown was right. $24,000 was literally the single smallest radio ad buy in the entire state of California. That's all Brown said and the OP is full of it when he insinuates anything else. BTW I like Brown especially last December when NJ Gov Chris Cristy claimed Brown was "an old washed up retread". Brown pointed out that he might be in his mid 70's but he still runs three miles a day in under 27 minutes plus he does push ups and pull ups every day then challenged Christie to a competition to see who could do all three the fastest/best. Does anyone think Brown wouldn't kick Christie's tubby butt?

Since California is #1 in small business start ups and has the most number of businesses based in it of any state I'm going to have to disagree with you. It seems a whole lot of businesses find very rational reasons to base their businesses right here.

Maybe I should sent him one of those Kleenex care kits they've been advertising on T.V.

I totally concur. California has never been a part of any of my business plans. There's a reason for that.

.

IHMO The only reason that business would want to stay in california would be the natural beauty of the state...weather, ocean, mountains, etc...You take that away and there would be an exodus of business leaving that Liberal cesspool of a State
