Welcome Texans! Good luck on your visit to Recruit California Businesses

Vranich wrote this a few weeks ago.

Fact – Californians Are Leaving: Along with companies interested in heading east are residents. Joel Kotkin, editor of, said, “Nearly four million more people have left the Golden State in the last two decades than have come from other states. This is a sharp reversal from the 1980s, when 100,000 more Americans were settling in California each year than were leaving.” The Tax Foundation reports that in the last decade more people moved from California to Texas than vice versa.

If we had a Super Bowl to determine the most effective state government, the Lone Star state would crush the so-called Golden State. Coach Rick Perry would accept the Lombardi Trophy while players splashed Shiner Bock beer all over him. Coach Jerry Brown would say, “Well, we really won, but that scoreboard, run by declinists, is wrong.”

So, dear visitors from Texas, should California’s jingoists disparage you again, just ignore the cheap shots. After all, the facts are so very much on your side.
