A record number of companies are leaving California for states with a better business climate, and a new report shows that Texas remains their No. 1 destination. What’s more, the study’s author – for the first time in his career – is openly urging California businesses to relocate out of state. Texas’ rank as the top destination for California companies is especially significant considering that the large majority of corporate relocations cross only one state line, said Joseph Vranich, president of Pennsylvania-based Spectrum Location Solutions LLC. “A lot of people don’t want to be more than one hour from other members of their family they might be leaving behind, or their good friends or their favorite country club — whatever it is,” Vranich said in an interview with the Dallas Business Journal.

“For Texas to do as well as it does attracting California companies is really remarkable in and of itself.”

North Texas has surfed a wave of California company headquarters relocations in the past few years, with health care giant McKesson (NYSE: MCK), convenience store distributor Core-Mark (Nasdaq: CORE), and medical technologies company DJO announcing moves from the Golden State to Dallas-Fort Worth in the past three months.

The only problem with that is the employees of those Cali Co's that transfer in to work at the new digs are liberal dirt bags with liberal values who bring their entitled dirt bag kids and enroll them in schools who spread liberal BS in the school house.  Then the Parents run for the school board and city government and then everything turns to shit.  Taxes go up. Christmas traditions are cancelled.   It goes on and on.

Maybe, maybe not. The vast majority of people that ruined California aren't from California either. They moved in like locust. Last I saw something like 70% of the programmers in the bay area are foreign born. No understanding of our constitution or our history yet they know what's best for everyone else that provided the freedom for them to do what they do.

Can't wait for Chevron to move to Texas.

Troodat.  My area of Georgia is now being overrun with NE liberals who escaped the hellholes they built up there for the higher standard of living and lower taxes down here.  Except now they are determined to implement the exact same policies here that turned their former communities into hellholes to begin with.

I swear liberals have zero understanding of human nature.  They always support higher and higher taxes, yet are amazed how much better things are in low-tax states.

It will have to happen eventually, otherwise, Chevron will cease to exist.

The state is aggressively suing Chevron and hates oil companies.

California is also attempting to destroy its farming industry.

Spot on.  I watched the same thing happen when I lived in Southlake/Keller tx and surrounding area.  They build their McMansions and wall themselves off and only associate with their liberal dullards. There was a push albeit small to get the state to enact a state income tax.  Shit, insanely high prop taxes is what drove me from the state.   Dumbasses just don't get it.

The cities want their water. The city dwellers are certain they are the center of the universe and that the dirty hick farmers don't know anything about of much anything and are unneeded.
