Like... Google and Apple and Facebook? The revenues of the three companies added together are greater than the GDP of New Zealand.

Intel? HP? There's another hundred-odd billion.

Then of course there's companies like Chevron (~$250B, bigger than the economy of Ireland or Israel) which, as some may remember, bought Texaco but decided to dump the Texaco name and remain headquartered in CA, not TX.

Texas is a great state--my wife's family is from there, and I love to visit--but denying that California is home to some of the world's biggest companies is just ignorant.
