Didn't they just decide to raise taxes on the rich again? Isn't it ranked 48th in the country for the worst places to start a business? California will collapse soon and the rest of the country will have to bail them out just like the EU is bailing out Greece.

I hate to do this to you but...
Texas
Beaches

Desert

Mountains

Forests


Texas is only 45% white
California is 49% white

Weather? You guys have 2 seasons, where is the fun in that? Texas has 4 seasons which vary greatly. We regularly see 105 degree summers and 20 degree winters with snow in the same local.



In-N-Out's in Texas too


San Francisco and Hollywood? Congrats...

Austin, San Antonio, Dallas, Houston, Fort Worth, the list goes on and on.

And these are supposed to be California's strongpoints

we don't have to deal with hurricanes... we along with Alaska have the most national parks (someone may need to verify).

LA and SF are both world class cities, one being the film capitol of the world.... can't say the same for any that you listed. oh yeah, and there's also silicon valley, innovation center of the world. Google and apple HQs are both 10 minute drives away from me. just stop, what you are listing isn't impressive at all

Then don't start a business.

It's about getting jobs, not starting businesses.

It's unfortunate, and a lot of that has to do with the current political makeup. But that can change with time and isn't set in stone... it's the natural intangible stuff that draws people here

Cali is a decent place to live if you are a multi millionaire

Otherwise, no thank you...WAY too expensive


My condo in Dallas would cost 3 mill in most of Cali

Hey, maybe some of us like tornado chasing.

There are some really great places in California, and some terrible ones. I wouldn't want to live in the Inland Empire, Central Valley area... and a lot of LA and parts of the Bay Area are pretty overrated...
